A pastor known for calling Orlando shooting victims at a gay nightclub “scum” in 2016 has been ousted from his Fort Worth church for “sleeping with prostitutes,” marijuana possession and gambling, according to a fellow pastor.
Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church resigned Wednesday, said Steven Anderson, a pastor at Romero’s former church in Phoenix.
As of Friday, Romero had not been charged with any crime by Fort Worth police. Anderson also said Romero has not been charged with a crime.
Romero could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.
