Considering the leader of their flock is about as despicable a person as you can hope is only a ploy to get children to finish their vegetables, it stands to reason that members of North Carolina pastor Charles "Kill the Queers" Worley's congregation would be equally horrid homophobes.

And yet it still takes you by surprise when you see just how atavistic some people can be.

Case in point: Providence Road Baptist Church member Stacey Pritchard who supports Rev. Worley's plot to eliminate homosexuality by corralling all the gays and lesbians behind an electrified fence and leaving them to "die out."

Even with Anderson Cooper patiently explaining to Ms. Pritchard that homosexuals will continue to be born despite their endlösung, her immutable bigotry forms an impenetrable reality-deflecting force field around her holier-than-thou sneer.
