A Georgia pastor is making waves after being caught on video unloading on what he called the hypocrisy of condemning LGBT people by Christian churches.
Pastor E. Dewey Smith of the House of Hope, Greater Travelers Rest church in Decatur gave an impassioned sermon, posted to YouTube on Thursday, in which he slammed church leaders for judging gay people but “you change wives like we change underwear.”
“‘These folks are an abomination, they are nasty,’ tell you what you do then. Go find every song that’s been written by a gay person for the last 100 years and don’t sing it in church,” he said, as the church congregation cheered him on. “Let’s see how many songs you can minister on that Sunday.”
He went on to criticize the habit of picking and choosing which parts of the Bible to adhere to, based on what is socially advantageous or convenient, but ignore it when it gets in the way of business.
“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.”

McEnany claims to not have ‘exact details’ on Roger Stone clemency after federal judge orders review
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Monday claimed to not have "exact details" President Donald Trump's order to commute Roger Stone's sentence.
At a press briefing, McEnany was asked about a federal judge's demand to see Trump's order of clemency for Stone because there are questions about how it was crafted.
"I don't, um, have the exact details on that," McEnany insisted. "The Roger Stone clemency was a very important moment for justice. You had a completely bogus Russia witch hunt that found nothing and in order to justify the waste of taxpayers dollars."
Ex-RNC head laughs and ridicules Trump for falling flat on his face in his war with Fauci
Appearing on MSNBC with host Ayman Mohyeldin, former Republican National Committee head Michael Steele burst out laughing and mocked Donald Trump over the White House's attempt to smear Dr. Anthony Fauci, saying it would likely boost the doctor's credibility and drag the president down even further.
Reacting to an NBC report that the Trump White House has created a tip sheet for reporters built to damage the top health official's reputation -- only for the press to instead focus on the fact that the White House is attempting to deflect responsibility for botching the COVID-19 health crisis -- Steele said Trump is losing the public relations war.
The View’s Meghan McCain erupts over criticism of the GOP — until Whoopi Goldberg finally cuts her off
"The View" host Whoopi Goldberg threatened to go to commercial break if Meghan McCain and Joy Behar didn't stop arguing.
The disagreement started in Monday's opening segment, when Behar claimed Republicans didn't care about education and McCain objected to the broad-brush criticism of her political party, and then bled into the second segment.
"I want to make one thing clear," Behar said, during a discussion of the White House turning on Dr. Anthony Fauci. "When I speak about Republicans, Meghan, I'm talking about the leadership in Congress, I'm not talking about the run-of-the-mill Republican voter. So do not say that to me again, okay?"
