I am so happy to see this website, speaking the truth,
educating readers and calling out those who would condemn
us for being as we were created. I recently left my own church
after visiting TUCC in Chicago -- I just couldn't justify
tithing and supporting a ministry that clearly views me as
2nd class. Please continue in the manner that you have and
God bless you!
David, St. Louis
Your site is wonderful. I went to Greater
Mount Calvary for a year and it was until a few months
that I heard my first gay bashing sermon and it tore me to
pieces on the inside. I decided to leave a few months later
my partner continued to go a few months and then he left as
well. I saw so many gay people that have stayed and act like
it's okay becuase they know that Bishop Owens is just saying
that because he wants to save face. But it is harmful and
one day my partner and I wish to have children. I don't want
them to hear the same type of bondage. The black church is
responsible for so many of our youth who have decided to commit
suicide and drink and drug themselves to death. The church
and the gay closeted preachers who decide to preach these
hate-filled sermons are responsible. It about time that we
stand up against this injustice. I thank God for you site.
It helps motivate me to keep moving forward in the direction
that I am going and to stand up against hatred and bigotry
of all kinds.
I thank God for you and the ministry you offer SGL folks
of the USA and hopefully the world. It's a long time coming.
In particular, at my church, the pastor and his brother are
gay. I know because I was the pastor's brother's lover for
some years. The hypocrisy which exists is what made me leave.
I found God for myself! I truly miss going to worship; however,
I will not sit there and be insulted by the Gay jokes and
putdowns. We as gay men and especially, gay Black men, have
endured enough of that mess. Thank you for being here and
I await your continued ministry. Keep on praising Him!!
This site is both fresh air and cool water. Thank you
for allowing The Holy Spirit to guide you in developing this
oasis. May God continue being a light unto your path and a
lamp unto your feet. May He grant you the wisdom and knowledge
of Solomon, the meekness of Moses, the courage of Elijah,
the determination of Daniel, the faithfulness of Paul, the
passion of Jeremiah, and above all, the character and righteousness
I found this site to be informative and something that
has been needed in the black gay community for a long time.
It is about time that someone has taken a stance in exposing
the discrimination and haterd of the Black Church. I am no
longer a part of that community, not ever wanting to return.
But I do believe that something has to be done in our own
community to get us to stand and up and speak out for ourselves,
that includes doing what this website is attempting, boycotting
the offending churches and removing ourselves not only physically
but financially. Through my group I have and will continue
to help in this endeavor. I applaud you and I really believe
that God applauds you too. God Bless.
Its about time that someone has taken the role of putting
this to rest. Which is dividing our commuity and not for the
better. Thank you for your efforts!
