Pastor Who Delivered Homophobic Sermon After Orlando Shootings Isn’t Backing Down

Adding insult to horrific injury, California Baptist Pastor Roger Jimenez praised the Orlando nightclub shooting in a sermon Sunday morning, just hours after the largest mass shooting in U.S. history. He spewed that they deserved their fate because of their orientation, delivering a sermon that would have been more at home at a supremacist meeting than a church. He unapologetically preached extreme religious views saying things like, “The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die.”

Pastor Jimenez received a lot of flak for his insensitive comments, but he has no regrets.

“As far as the Bible is concerned, they crossed a line. The sin they performed is worthy of death,” said the Sacramento pastor, according to CBS. “I realize our society doesn’t take that, but that’s what the Bible says. If someone does something that’s worthy of death, and they end up dying, I’m not going to mourn them.” And we thought this was 2016.

“Absolutely, I think they are safer now because of these deaths, and the reason I think that is because I believe all of these homosexuals are pedophiles,” Hmmm…you’d think priests of all people would want to stay out of the “you’re all pedophiles” game.

Fortunately, Baptists and people from all faiths have come out against this sermon, understanding that hateful views are what got us into this mess in the first place. Overall there has been an outpouring of support from the Florida community.

Colombian Soccer Players Show They Can Dance Cumbia With The Best Of Them


James Rodriguez and the rest of his Colombia teammates appear to be having a great time at the Copa America Centenario tourney. Aside from their stumble versus Costa Rica in the group stage, the Cafeteros have looked like one of the favorites to raise the Copa. They’ve played attractive, attacking football, and it looks like they’re not only having fun on the pitch, but in the locker room, too.

A video recently surfaced featuring Rodriguez and a few teammates dancing to the beat of a cumbia. James may be the star, but it’s clear that Juan Cuadrado and Carlos Sanchez have the best moves on the team.

Los Cafeteros are no strangers to locker room hijinks. Here’s an old video of James & crew heading a ball back and forth around the locker room:

And if you can’t get enough of Colombia’s dancing, here’s footage of them getting down at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil…

And footage of Colombia players egging on a young James Rodriguez to show the rest of the team his moves.

Win or lose, Colombia definitely knows how to have fun.
