Pharrell, Yolanda Adams, Chaka & Others Speak Out Against Kim Burrell’s Anti-Gay Sermon

yolandaadams-kimburrell

*Dang! Talk about putting your foot in mouth to the point where you can’t easily get it out is the position that (gospel) singer Kim Burrell finds herself in … in spite of what some are calling her non-apology.

If you haven’t heard, Burrell is seen on video (above) preaching what’s being called a “hateful” sermon about “perverted” homosexuals just days before she’s scheduled to appear on “Ellen” of all things

In the video, which appeared online on Friday (12-30-16), Burrell asks anyone afflicted with the “homosexual spirit” to pray to God for deliverance. She then refers to homosexuality as a spirit of “delusion” as well as “confusion” before straight up calling out homosexuals “perverted.”

And for good measure, she throws Bishop Eddie Long under the bus by making reference to his illness and connecting it to homosexual activity.

Like we said, the kicker is that Kim Burrell is scheduled to appear on “Ellen” with Pharrell Williams on January 5th to promote the soundtrack of the movie “Hidden Figures” which Pharrell produced and features her singing. Now, ifher appearance on the show still happens, it’s going to be awkward because of course Ellen Degeneres is one of those ‘perverted’ homosexuals Burrell’s speaking so negatively about.

Meanwhile, Pharrell Williams, Octavia Spencer, Yolanda Adams, Chaka Khan, Questlove and other celebs are speaking out AGAINST Burrell’s hateful sermon. In a message shared via Instagram, Adams spoke out in defense of Bishop Eddie Long.

Yolanda Adams wrote:

“As a Person who has Gay Relatives and Friends, I had to put these Words in the Atmosphere to combat the unwarranted and unproven attack on My Friend #BishopLong.
Hateful Words are never profitable to the Cause of Christ in the World. Jesus said “They will know you by your Love.” LOVE YALL”

Pharrell Williams Responded with:

“I condemn hate speech of any kind. There is no room in this world for any kind of prejudice. My greatest hope is for inclusion and love for all humanity for 2017 and beyond.”

Actress Octavia Spencer, who appears in Hidden Figures,” basically agrees with Pharrell Williams:

“I agree. We are all God’s children equal in his eyes. Hatred isn’t the answer. Intolerance isn’t the answer.”

Chaka Khan’s tweet was about encouraging love instead of judgment:

Questlove’s Twitter rant was about encouraging Christians to be more “Christlike”:

Here is Kim Burrell’s apology or what are calling a non-apology:

  1. Thank’s for telling the truth. Only God’s truth makes the sinner free. Scripture lets us know most won’t turn away from sin after hearing God’s truth, but some will. May God bless you to preach many more sermons for His glory.

  2. No, you didn’t say ALL gays are going to hell. They aren’t; however, ALL gays, who don’t repent, are going to hell.

  3. Ya’ll All who are condemning Kim Burrell are crazy. We want to satisfy people with our mess, so she speaks against homosexuality and now these so called Godly people want to condemn what she said. Well your songs have no place in Gospel Music you clam to lift up Jesus but yet you don’t take his word, Go and sin no more. You fake believers are worldly you don’t stand on any Godly principals. You have created an atmosphere that has destroyed the communities and homes in which we live there are no standards to living. You all are the authors of the new Bible LAKW Live Any Kind of Way version.

  4. Well, I don’t force nobody to do nothing. I rides for my alternative lifestyle community. My life partner I and didn’t agree with her sermon.

  5. This post is for Yolanda Adams and any other so-called “Christian” who is condemning Kim Burrell for telling the truth: YOU HAD BETTER READ GENESIS 19, ROMANS 1:21-32, 1 CORINTHIANS 6:9-10, and 15-20. You are coming against the woman of God for telling the truth, which means you side with the world! You are against God’s Word! God can strike you down as quickly as you can blink. And if you do not repent, God’s judgment is going to come against you.

    Now, this does not apply to people like Pharrell, Chaka Khan, Monae (or whatever her name is) Sidney and Monique because their lives prove that they do not love Jesus. So the same rules do not apply to them. They live in violation to the scriptures so they can say whatever they want, because we do not expect for them to be on the LORD’s side. But you people in the pulpits and in the gospel music industry, you can be sure of this: the LORD said in His Word, Mark 8:38, that “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” In Exodus 32:26, the Israelites had to make a decision: ” Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the Lord’s side?”

    Jesus is going to return soon. I know the unbelievers and some of the believers do not get this, but that does not make it a lie. He said He would return and you can take His promises to the bank. If you are not on His side when He does return, if you have not confessed your sin to Him, asked Him for forgiveness and declared to yourself and the world that Jesus is LORD, then you will be condemned for all eternity and you will spend eternity in HELL.
