Pastor who called Orlando Pulse victims 'scum'
Donnie Romero, a Baptist minister in Texas who came into the spotlight in 2016 when he praised the Pulse nightclub shooting that killed 49 people, was fired after admitting that he used marijuana, had a gambling habit and paid for sex with prostitutes.
In 2016, following the mass shooting at Pulse, Romero heaped praise on domestic terrorist Omar Mateen, calling the victims "perverts and pedophiles."
"They're the scum of the earth, and the earth is a better place now, and I'll take it a step further," Romero said of the Pulse victims. "I'll pray to God like I did this morning, and I will again tonight, that God will finish the job that man has started."
