Hate, Homophobia or the Word of God? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

January 18, 2017 by The ReadyWriter


hate_homophobia_wog_cos_jan_2017-2We’re back!!! And tonight’s “Conversation” is going to be hot !!!

As we discuss how more than 1 million people watched Kim Burrell rail against “that perverted homosexual spirit” in a controversial sermon clip that led to the gospel singer getting pulled from a performance on “Ellen” and facing ongoing backlash from LGBT advocates.

She had been named a co-honoree at BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards, but the organization uninvited her due to the recent remarks. Also, her radio show — airing out of Texas Southern University — has been canceled.

Burrell’s two-minute clip of her message, filmed on a phone and posted on YouTube, shows Burrell describing sex acts and saying, “The spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women, and it’s caused a stain on the body of Christ.”

Her critics said her message was hate, other media outlets called it a homophobic rant, while believers state it’s the Word of God.

What do you say?

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio as I discuss “Hate, Homophobia or the Word of God?” with three (3) dynamic ministers; Rev. Caffie Risher, Minister Tuala Williams-Shields and Pastor Josh Olivero.  

All “topic and conversation links” in this post will access the show.

See you on the air!!

      why to rail against the obvious, that it was a hate speech when Christian ministers will argue that it’s not? O_o

        well we all know why someone who is gay would think Burrell’s message was HATE because it’s the lifestyle that they’re living which is against Christian beliefs. Which is why some people on here are comparing her sermon with other sins. Smh.

        Maybe Tracy should ask, is one any greater than the other?

    Tracy after generations of homosexuals running rampant in the black church and gospel world, I can certainly understand Kim’s frustration if she is truly convicted in her beliefs. I hope that God can rid her of that perverted spirit of pride and hate — and help her clarify what she should REALLY be praying for….because pastor and ministers turn their heads to the obvious as to what is going on in their churches.

    Most Christians ‘rank’ sins like one is worse than the other. So hypocritical! Gluttony is a sin that NO ONE talks about because you’d piss off half the church.

      Adam,
      Those who read the Bible in it’s entirety can see that God Himself is the one who “ranks” sin. In that same Bible it speaks of ‘men who lie with men” and “liars” as things He hates. Meaning those who choose to practice these things.

      Being that she referred to a “homosexual spirit” it seems to me she wasn’t trying to offend, but rather address a real issue.

      Sadly, in this entitled society, no one feels anyone can tell them right from wrong…

    • Adam says:

      Can you point me to the ‘rankings’ you referred to in the Bible? Thanks!

      I don’t think people, at least I’m not, are saying don’t tell them right from wrong. But some call out some wrongs while others have become accepted is all I’m saying.

        I say this with love
        There is a difference yet still its “sin”
        Think in these terms to make it understandable
        There’s misdemeanors and there’s felonies
        Both are infractions- breaking of the law
        But the penalty is greater for a felony
        Gluttony= misdemeanor

        Adultery, Liars, Thieves etc bible says be not deceived those that do such things will not go to heaven = felony
        Gluttony can be upgraded to a felony – some people will kill, steal, etc to satisfy their lust

    What gets me is Black pastors (MEN) hasn’t addressed Burrell’s statement at all. Especially the likes of TD Jakes and Jamal Bryant….wonder why that is?

    don’t follow the bible, but for those that do, how can anyone follow a book written (by man) hundreds of years ago? Times change, people change. We’re living in a different time and your thinking should adjust to where we are today, not where a fictional book says you should (do or live by). Just think, you don’t raise your kids completely the way your parents raised you. Your parents raised you and left off something they didn’t agree with, as taught by their parents.
    Sure, there’s a spiritual power, but they can trash any versions of the bible. The bible teaches you to live in fear, honor this jealous God, and accept that any bad shit you go through is God teaching you a lesson about faith. I’m good on all that.

    Your question how are we to win souls if our messages are harsh was on point. There are 2 sides of the coin with one spenderture and that is preaching the gospel in love because Josh made a great a point in saying her message was harsh because she became graphic in detail in the sexual act of that which in un natural but you gotta be sensitive in that respect. but the conversation was slammin!
