A video has emerged of gospel singer Kim Burrell attacking LGBT people as “perverts” and sinners, just days before she is scheduled to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The video, published December 30 on YouTube, shows Burrell preaching a sermon against homosexuality. “Anyone filled with the homosexual spirit, beg God to free you… That perverted homosexual spirit, and the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women,” she yells in the video.

“You as a man, you open your mouth and take a man’s penis in your face, you are perverted. You are a woman and will shake your face in another woman’s breast, you are perverted. And it has come into our church and embarrassed the kingdom of God.”

Burrell also said that Bishop Eddie Long, who is rumored to be suffering from HIV or AIDs, was an “embarrassment to the church” because of his alleged illness, suggesting it was related to homosexual activity.

Burrell is scheduled to appear January 5 on The Ellen Degeneres Show to perform “I See Victory” with Pharrell Williams.

Watch the sermon below:

Burrell on Friday night posted a Facebook Live video responding to the controversy stirred up by her sermon.

“We’re not in a war against flesh and blood,” she said. “I came on [Facebook Live] because I care about God’s creation and every person from the LGBT and anything else, any other kind of thing that is supporting gay — I never said LGBT last night. I said S.I.N. and whatever falls in the sin was preached.”

“What I posted was not all I preached to… isn’t that something? That is design of the enemy to make it look like I have a personal agenda against people… to the carnal all things are carnal, and to the spiritual all things are spiritual.”

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson, who is gay, said in a series of tweets that Burrell’s sermon was a “reminder that, for many of us, the church is a space of faux liberation and hypocritical theology.”

Trump mask-shames CBS reporter Lesley Stahl — and ominously warns ‘much more to come’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has spent months belittling people for wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

His anti-mask attitude reportedly resulted in White House and campaign staff not wearing masks so as to avoid angering their boss.

And Trump has repeatedly attacked Joe Biden for wearing facial coverings -- even after the president was hospitalized for COVID-19.

But on Tuesday, Trump dramatically shifted his position and mask-shamed CBS "60 Minutes" reporter Lesley Stahl, posting video of her not wearing a mask while Trump was.

Trump included video of their interview in his tweet:

Published

According to a report from the Washington Post, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told fellow Republicans this Tuesday that he warned the White House not to make a stimulus deal with Democrats before the election.

"McConnell suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is not negotiating in good faith with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and any deal they reach could disrupt the Senate’s plans to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court next week," the Post reports.

As the Post points out, McConnell's stance risks dashing any hopes that a stimulus deal would be passed before November 3rd.

Legal analyst suggests ‘truth commission’ to bring the US back from Trumpism

on

“When a plane falls out of the sky, we don’t just shrug our shoulders and say, 'gravity has consequences'” wrote legal analyst Elie Mystal in his column for "The Nation" Tuesday.

After five years of dealing with President Donald Trump, Mystal thinks that the way to bring the United States back to normal is with a kind of "truth and reconciliation commission."

He recalled in 2009 when former President Barack Obama came into office he was asked if he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate George W. Bush's administration for the torture scandal and illegal detention.
