Baptist Church Hosts Thanksgiving Meal for Homosexuals Whose Families Don’t Accept Their Sin
But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. – 1 Corinthians 5:11
The Highland Baptist Church will host a “Soul Supper” on Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. for members of those identifying by the sin of sodomy.
The church claims to hold to “progressive theology” on its website.
“You will find folks from all walks of life contributing to this church family: retired grandparents, hard-working twenty-year-olds, parents, tons of kids, LGBTQ friends of every age, and people with a variety of gifts, abilities, insights, and opinions. Our progressive theology is hard to miss, but hopefully, you will also notice how we value the healthy tension that comes from recognizing our differences.”
The pastor, Maurice Blanchard (who is a homosexual and goes by the nickname “Bojangles”), claimed that the meal was for those practicing sodomy who can’t return home because they’re unrepentant. He told the press, “We provide a safe space for them to come be loved, affirmed, feel safe.”
The pastor said, “Some people might be shocked that a Baptist church would be a welcoming place for the LGBTQ community, but I can tell you that Highland Baptist and this community have really embraced the LGBTQ folk.”
Pastor Bojangles was arrested in 2013 for demanding a gay marriage license from his local courthouse, and when denied, hosting a “pray-in” demonstration.
