Earvin aka “Magic” Johnson, who donated 5 million dollars to help build West Angeles COGIC, lent his voice to encourage support of homosexual marriage with this phone message to California voters. Johnson, one of West Angeles’s celebrated celebrity members had no problem publicly joining with those who spread rebellion against the good and perfect will of God.
“This is Magic Johnson calling to ask you to join me and Barack Obama in opposing Proposition 8. Prop 8 singles out one group of Californians to be treated differently – including members of our family, our friends, and our coworkers”…. “That is not what California is about. So this Tuesday, vote no on Proposition 8. It is unfair and wrong. Thanks.
Not only should Johnson have been publicly rebuked by his pastor, he should have been required to publicly renounce his support for this wickedness. But the question is why didn’t Bishop Charles Blake handle his responsibilities as pastor of COGIC’s flagship church? Is this another incredulous case of “I didnt know”? Another case of stonewalled silence?
COGIC should be completely outraged that their leader is spiritually impotent when it comes to homosexuality. Maybe that’s the trade off for more fame and ecumenicalism via Bishop Blake’s new reign of error. The war of the century against the advancement of homosexual marriage was in Bishop Blake’s front yard and he didnt even have the courage to peek his head out of the front door and see if he could make a difference. Pastor Harvey Burnett at Dunamis Word has more on the astonishing story.
