Kirk Franklin Apologizes to the LGBT Community for Homophobia in the Black Church

Kirk Franklin is singing a different song these days when it comes to love and the LGBT community. In an interview with Pix11 to promote his new album, "Losing My Religion", Kirk issued a public apology to the LGBT community for homophobia in the Black church.

via The Grio:

“I want to apologize for all of the hurtful and painful things that have been said about people in the church that have been talented and gifted and musical, that we’ve used and we’ve embarrassed… and all this other horrible crap that we’ve done,” Franklin said. “We have not treated them like people. We’re talking about human beings, men and women that God has created.”

“The Bible is not a book that’s an attack on gay people,”
he added. “It’s not a book written to attack gay people.”
Overall, Franklin said he wants the LGBT community to realize that God is about grace and love.

“It is horrible that we have made it where the Bible is a homophobic manual,” Franklin said. “That’s not what the Bible is. I mean you want to talk about things that God gets at… pride and jealousy and envy and arrogance. But what we also see is God sending his son to save us all, because we were all… straight, gay or whatever, lost and in need of a savior, and there’s room at the cross for all of us.” 

 

Well, his intentions are good — but it’s interesting this ‘apology’ comes bundled with album promo.

''It’s a new era, a new turn in the tides of journey as a nation steeped deep in the ashes of partisanship, corruption, bad governance and a host of other vices.

We mark an end to the reign of terror over Nigeria, we hear the echo of a sound from Judah, the roar of the Lion, declaring the rise of a new sun upon every heart, it’s the day of His power.'' ~ Pst. Chingtok Ishaku & Nathaniel Bassey
