    At least she didn't backpedal... Hope she doesn't have the stereotypical gay choir director as the Minister of Music like many churches. :pachaha:


    Famous gospel singer Kim Burrell is coming under fire for comments she recently made while speaking at her church, when she spoke about the dangers of living a homosexual lifestyle and how it is contrary to the message of Jesus Christ.

    “Anybody in this room who feels the homosexual spirit, beg God to free you,” Burrell said, according to an out-of-context excerpt of a sermon she recently gave at her Houston church.

    “I came to tell you about sin. That sin nature. That perverted homosexual spirit, and the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women, and it’s caused a stain on the body of Christ,” she added.

    The out-of-context clip was posted to YouTube with the title, “Kim Burrell bashes homosexuals; implies they will die in 2017.” It has received more than a half million views as of Monday morning.

    And after receiving swift criticism from every corner of the progressive internet, Burrell uploaded a video to Facebook responding to the criticism.

    Hoping folks like @KimBurrellLove & others like her finally realize that#LoveIsLove

    .@KimBurrellLove @TheEllenShow Do you consider Ellen to have that "perverted homosexual spirit" you speak of?

    — Alan Bennett Ilagan (@alanilagan) December 31, 2016


    In her response, Burrell said that she never condemned gay people. In fact, Burrell said that she loves them, but was simply doing her job as a Christian: proclaiming the good news about Jesus Christ and that his grace and salvation is freely available to any person who repents turns to him and away from the bondage of their sin.

    "I never said LGBT last night, I said S-I-N…Now what was posted was not all that I preached, too. Only that. Isn’t that something? That is designed of the enemy to make it look like I have a personal agenda against people…

    I have to do what God tells me to do…I’m not to be shaken cause I’m out here for God…to every person that is dealing with the homosexual spirit, that has it, I love you cause God loves you–but he hates the sin in you and me–anything that’s against the nature of God…

    There are a lot of people that I’m aware of that struggle, or deal, or have that spirit. Have I discriminated against them? Have I ever outright told them ‘I don’t love you’ and ‘you going to hell?’ Who gives me the right to say that I’m telling someone that they’re going to hell. I don’t get that call. There’s a responsibility in the church to represent the almighty God, and it is wrong for us to gather, that as we rep God, that we take his place. Don’t think that. I’m not that shallow.

    I never said that all gays are going to hell…I was addressing church people, and let’s get even more specific–ones who were in my church. My church where I pastor…I never said God was killing a gay in 2017. I said people who operate with that spirit in the church, with deception, and attack themselves are going to have to face the master. That’s what I said–and that death is attached to their behavior. "



    Still, the criticism is rampant, especially since Burrell is set to perform a duet with singer Pharrell from the new movie “Hidden Figures” later this week on Ellen DeGeneres’ TV show.

    DeGeneres is one of Hollywood’s most outspoken lesbians and proponents of same-sex marriage rights. She “came out” as gay in 1997 and married longtime girlfriend Portia de Rossi in 2008. She has not publicly responded to Burrell’s comments.

    Pharrell, however, posted an ominous message to Instagram over the weekend, saying that he “condemns” hate speech “of any kind.” The message was posted without context, but most think that it was a response to Burrell’s sermon

    The sermon was a diss toward Eddie Long



    She basically said homosexuals are perverted - fact

    She said homosexuals that bring homosexuality into the church bring confusion and embarrass the church - fact

    She said homosexuals that bring homosexuality into the church are trying to overthrow the church - fact

    She said Eddie Long has embarrassed the church - fact

    She said those that bring homosxuality into the church by their own habits, are going to die from it - Eddie Long will be dead soon fact.

    :manny:
    But obviously homosexuals, in their emotions are going to be disingenuous about all this and make it into something else to shame her for talking about a problem taking place in the church. Undercover gay men spreading confusion and corruption. :manny:

    If she plans on working with homosexuals in the music industry this may have been the wrong thing to say, because gays dont like criticism and will retaliate by trying to hurt her money.

    The fact that some fairy in her church got mad and posted it on the internet tells you she was 100% correct.

    ..didn't she recently sing on a cut from Frank Ocean, an openly gay artist?
    fawk, I hope she's ready for the sh*tstorm coming her way. Ironically enough I don't think she would have said any of that if she knew she'd be recorded.

    Yes on her apology video and several response videos, people are going in on the comment sections; especially young gay men YouTubers and LGBT supporters, mainly female. One called her hungry hungry Hippo and a hypocrite. She doesn't seem to have many supporting comments.
    Kim Burrell certainly ended 2016 on a sour note didn't she? But she had no problem doing a song with Frank Ocean, going on Ellen Degeneres show, or having gay people produce her music. And it's a known fact she has a gay entourage picking out her wardrobe, doing make-up, and pressing her edges...hypocrisy at it's finest!

    Friend, they could not take anything away that we did not give.

    And I believe it is a good thing that the Bible didn't hide the imperfections and multitude of mistakes of its characters.

    The Yoruba had a word, which I cannot recall at this moment which was used to describe Christianity. That word was 'Faith'. They also have a word for another religion meaning 'By Force'.

    I say that to say this, Christianity demands that you believe; it cannot be done by force.

    Or would you rather sacrifice humans and throw twins in the forest?

    But please, tell me more about the lies.
