This was a surprise. And then again, it wasnt. The collusion with people who promote false doctrines and lies about sexuality is widespread in the black church. Some of them are becoming bolder (or comfortable) now that tolerance and diversity is fast replacing truth and obedience as Christian virtues. Herndon Davis, author of Black, Gay and Christian wrote about the speakers at Atlanta’s extra gay friendly Tabernacle Baptist Church men’s conference last year. If you live in Atlanta and know anything about black gospel radio, you’ll notice the name Reggie Gay, a prominent announcer and local personality. Gay was a speaker at the conference on April 27th. Sidebar: Please don’t make juvenile remarks about his last name. There are no intentional puns.
What’s the big deal you say? Well, there isn’t one. This is routine information that needs to go on the record here at Gay Christian Movement Watch.
Davis lists the speakers of that day along with a brief synopsis of their remarks.
Other speakers for the day included, the pastor of Tabernacle, Rev. Dennis Meredith who was recently spotlighted in a New York Times article concerning his love and acceptance ministry.
In addition, Reggie Gay, local Atlanta gospel radio/TV personality, who can be heard on KISS 104.1, GLORY 1340, and on the internet…
Donnell Duncan, founder of the cracker Door and author of the book, “I Curse Death” a revolutionary analysis of the concept of death.
Reverend Franc Perry, New York lawyer and staff evangelist for MCC-Atlanta, also flew in for the event as well. And we were joined by Rev. Christopher Vincent Brown, an associate minister at Tabernacle.
All of us came from diverse theological, personal, and professional backgrounds as we spoke on this year’s theme: Christianity and The Modern Man.
Here’s a rundown of what happened.
Reggie Gay gave a strong inspirational talk which set the tone for the rest of us to follow”.
Except for Reggie Gay, all of the speakers are gay or gay affirming. Christopher Brown, Dennis Meredith, Franc Perry, Donnell Duncan, and of course Herndon Davis. Davis is the gay christian while speaking at a church in Denver, took the Bible, hurled it to the floor and stomped on it. He said it was to dramatize his belief that the Bible isnt really God’s Word. The poor congregation went into shock. The pastor who invited him later announced his own homosexuality and the church fired him.
Would a crowd like this have such affinity for Gay if he didn’t agree with their views? Speaking from experience, I caused a near riot at TBC in 2004 when I gave my testimony in the midst of a hostile gay christian crowd. Its amazing how the “love and tolerance” crowd will behave when they are faced with truth.
Let’s recap: We are not saying Reggie Gay is gay by association, but it is interesting his association, given TBC and company’s rejection of biblical truth about sexuality. Reggie Gay is in everybody’s church in Atlanta and it would be terrible for churches who believe the Biblical view of sexuality to continue to host him if he holds unbiblical beliefs.
Mr. Gay, if youre out there, maybe you can make public your views on whether or not one can be a homosexual christian.
