Landlord Gives Awful Pastor Who Praised Orlando Shooting The Boot

by Graham Gremore June 22, 2016


Pastor Roger Jimenez is learning the hard way that sometimes actions do, indeed, have consequences.

Jimenez made headlines last week when he launched into a hateful diatribe praising the Orlando mass shooting.

“Are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today?” the pastor of Verity Baptist Church in Sacramento said in his sermon just hours after the massacre. “Um no, I think that’s great! I think that helps society. I think Orlando, Florida is a little safer tonight.”

He followed that up by saying Christians “don’t need to do anything to help” and suggested the government “round them [gays] all up and put them up against a firing wall, and blow their brains out.”

Well, it appears the landlord who owns the building where Verity Baptist Church congregates got wind of the sermon and didn’t appreciate it. So he’s terminating their lease.

According the property managerment company Harsch Investment Properties, Jimenez’s speech violates a clause in their lease agreement which states “tenants who advocate hatred and the taking of innocent lives” will not be tolerated.

Since the lease doesn’t technically expire until 2017, Harsch Investment Properties says it will not renew the congregation’s lease. They have also met with Jimenez to encourage him to move out sooner, saying they won’t impose a penalty for breaking the lease.

“We have many places of worship and other religious organizations in the properties we manage,” company officials stated in a press release. “Like all our tenants, their occupancy rights are protected in their leases.”

The statement continues: “Just as we respect the right of individuals to speak their views, as distasteful as they may be, we also respect the right of others to protest as a reflection of their values. For decades, the owners and staff at Harsch Investment Properties have supported the LGBT community and many other organizations whose missions are to further respect, dignity and the ability for all individuals to live their lives as they wish.”
