A church sermon by a sheriff’s detective is being investigated after it called LGBT+ people to be arrested and executed. The Knox County Attorney General’s Office is looking into the hour-long sermon delivered by Detective Grayson Fritts, who is also a pastor at the All Scripture Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. Fritts told his congregation that he believed the federal, state and county governments should arrest, convict and execute people in the LGBT+ community, the Tennessean reported. Those who appeared in a photo participating at a Pride event would be eligible, he said. He gave the sermon on 2 June, on the first Sunday of Pride month.
