It seems like every month a new Christian leader embraces the LGBT movement - from pastor Brandan Robertson to Tony Campolo and Jen Hatmaker - the list never ends. Recently, I came across an article in the Christian Post stating, “After his announcement of LGBT support in 2015, Pastor Stan Mitchell of GracePointe Church in Franklin, Tennessee was profiled in Time magazine.”<p><p>Ironically, I had the privilege of debating Stan Mitchell on Fox News with Lauren Green. I would consider him a friend even though I did not know him before the debate. My wife and I had a wonderful time dialoguing with him before the discussion.<p><p>One would think that churches who support the LGBT agenda would see phenomenal growth if God, the government, Hollywood, and the media are all on their side, but the opposite is true - they often decline and fade away. Like Samson, “They know not that the Spirit of the Lord has departed.” Here’s why:<p><p>Photo courtesy: ©Thinkstockphotos.com
I recently spoke at a community college in Southern California demonstrating that faith and science are not at odds. In posts leading up to the event, I was labeled a “hate pastor” as LGBT activists protested the event. Sadly, due to escalating campus protests across America, a number of sheriff deputies were on stand-by. <p><p>My wife and I were perplexed - when did a message of love become a message of hate? We love the LGBT community and I wasn’t talking about this issue that evening. When my wife approached them, she was attacked verbally - from profanity to sexual innuendos. Ironically, those who promote tolerance are often intolerant of those who disagree. <p><p>This experience, as well as an upcoming appearance on Fox News.com with Lauren Green to debate a pastor who supports homosexuality, prompted me to define the misunderstandings.<p><p>Photo courtesy: Unsplash/Max Templeton
A Christian printer reportedly refused to print business cards promoting the business of a transgender woman who works as a “diversity consultant” and seeks to offer companies advice on diversity, equality, and inclusion for LGBT individuals.
