This week, Donnie Romero — an anti-LGBTQ pastor at the Stedfast Baptist Church of Fort Worth, Texas — resigned over his “sins” of gambling, smoking weed and hiring sex workers. His church was labelled as an anti-LGBTQ hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, reports LGBTQ Nation.

Romero considers gay people “f*ggots” and “pedophiles” who should all be “put to death.” After the June 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting that killed 49 and injured 53, Romero asked God to “finish the job” by killing the other hospitalized victims.

In his tearful resignation video posted on Wednesday, Romero told his congregation, “I have not been ruling my house well. I have been a terrible husband and father.”
