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.
