E. Dewey Smith on Homosexuality

E Dewey Smith-homosexuality

Pastor E. Dewey Smith of Greater Travelers Rest Church in Atlanta, Georgia went In on Christian Churches for condemning LGBT people noting that we pick and choose parts of the bible to adhere to and mocking church leaders for judging gay people but
“you change wives like we change underwear.” And, we don’t like gay people but a gay choir director is ok cause they are good for business.”

Pastor Smith notes in his sermon:

“We demonize and dehumanize the same people that we use and we don’t say nothing about the gay choir director because he’s good for business” Smith said. “As long as the choir sound good, I ain’t saying nothing about his sexuality. We have done what the slave master did to us. Dehumanize us, degrade us, demonize us, but then use them for our advantage.” Check it out below:
