In case you missed it, gospel singer and pastor Kim Burrell is receiving a ton of backlash for her sermon that surfaced in a video on Friday (Dec. 30th) which shows Burrell preaching about “perverted” homosexuals.

In the clip, Burrell can be heard saying that those who have the “homosexual spirit” need to pray to God for deliverance, implying they  “will die in  2017.” She even brought Bishop Eddie Long into the conversation; Long recently re-emerged in photos looking very sickly, and Burrell implies his condition is due to his sexual orientation, as Long has been rumored to be an undercover homosexual.



Ironically, this all emerges days before Burrell is scheduled to appear  on “The Ellen Show” on January 5th with Pharrell Williams to promote their song from the Hidden Figures soundtrack. As we all know, host Ellen Degeneres is one of the most famous homosexuals in the world.  

However, Burrell’s songmate Pharrell is speaking out against Burrell’s inflammatory comments. He wrote on Twitter:


And Pharrell isn’t the only one: Octavia Spencer, Yolanda Adams, Chaka Khan, Questlove and other celebs are speaking out against Burrell’s hateful sermon.

Actress Octavia Spencer, star of Hidden Figures, responded to Pharrell’s tweet with:

    I condone hate speeches either; however, there’s nothing about her sermon. I feel that everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. I truly believe that God isn’t pleased with the things of this world. We have twisted what the Bible says to fit our needs. I know plenty of people who are gay but I still love them. The Bible says to hate the sin and love the person. The world has come to a place that many people don’t want to here the truth. They’d rather live with their head with their clouds. You shouldn’t be ashamed to stand up and tell the truth because living in fear isn’t the way to go. One has to reach souls for Christ and both worry about the backlash. Stand for something or you’ll fall for anything!!

      so true!..People what to do whatever their flesh desires. And then say God is love–they fail to mention we were bought with a price and our body is not our own
