At Selena Gomez’s recent Miami concert she gave a heart-wrenching tribute to Christina Grimmie, who was tragically shot by a crazed fan last Friday. Christina was Selena’s friend and opening act in her We Own The Night tour. The two had been friends since the age of 14 when Selena’s step-father became Grimmie’s manager.

Selena began the tribute by saying a few words about her late friend, “And one thing about Christina and her family, is that she holds her faith so closely to her. It’s not about her religion, and it’s not about good deeds. It’s just that she had faith. And I don’t really understand how this happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her.”

Selena sang the song “Transformation” before breaking down and mouthing the words “I’m sorry.” We’ve never seen Selena so heartbroken, even in the Bieber days.

The attack on Christina happened just before the largest mass shooting in US  history, which also took place in Orlando, Flo. Florida is currently under fire, receiving serious criticism of their lax gun laws.

This is how you breed hate.

On  Sunday morning, mere hours after 49 LGBTQ people were senselessly murdered at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Pastor Roger Jimenez  of the Sacramento, Calif.-based Verity Baptist Church told his congregation that Orlando is safer now that “50 pedophiles” have been mowed down.  Yes. Really. He even went further with his hateful rhetoric and said that he thought what happened in Orlando was “great.”

But, perhaps the most troubling quote from his whole sermon was this: “I wish the government would round them all up, put them up against a firing wall, put a firing squad in front of them and blow their brains out,” Jimenez spewed from the pulpit.

The video, originally posted to the church’s YouTube page, has been removed by YouTube for violating it’s hate speech policy. If you know YouTube, you know it takes a lot to have a video taken down over your hate speech.

People are taking to the church’s Facebook page to let them know what they think of the “teachings.”

And he has even been denounced by Kevin Johnson, the mayor of Sacramento.

But, for real though, dude. You do NOT speak for Latinos or Christians.
