JC Penney ad features same-sex married couple and their kids; Gay pastor loses half of his congregation

JC Penney has launched a Father’s Day ad featuring a same-sex gay couple and their two children. The ad copy reads: “real-life dads Todd Koch and Cooper Smith with their children, Claire and Mason.”

The gay marriage-friendly campaign comes on the heels of President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage earlier this month — a move some critics believe was politically motivated.

A week after Obama’s surprise announcement, the national media went into overdrive promoting same-sex marriage in all platforms. Some media outlets announced recent polls showing support for gay marriage steadily increasingly among the black community.

But the fact remains that in the 32 states where same-sex marriage is banned by law, blacks were the major contributing factor against gay marriage.

Blacks who fear that the traditional family is under attack in America believe that children need both a mother and a father.

Despite the misleading headlines proclaiming black support for gay marriage is evolving, a St. Paul church is on the brink of closing after losing more than half of its congregation when their pastor announced his support of gay marriage.

The Rev. Oliver White, 69, has no regrets that his strong support of same-sex marriage set off a stampede from his church. Grace Community United Church of Christ, the only UCC church in Minnesota with a predominantly black congregation, needs $200,000 by June 30 to pay off a loan or it will be forced to close.

The church’s problems began in 2005 when the Rev. White attended a UCC conference in Atlanta where he voted with a majority of delegates in favor of a resolution supporting gay marriage

“I was really in shock,” said Pastor White, who is gay. “I visited one member after another, who told me they weren’t coming back because of it. The membership evaporated right before my eyes. Their fundamental belief was it’s wrong for a man and a man to marry or a woman and a woman to marry. A lot of them said if I change, they’d come back. But I told them, it is what it is. I am who I am. And this is what I fight for.”

“I think he was offended because we abruptly left,” said Pastor Donald Keith. “Pastors have a responsibility to teach the Bible truth. We have no right to distort what the Bible has to say. We didn’t want to support him at all if that’s the way he believed,” said Keith whose wife also left the church.

“When he came out and definitely said homosexuality was not a sin, we said ‘Whoa, this is a pastor,” said Keith. “How is he calling himself ‘reverend’? It’s not compatible with what the Bible teaches.”

      I personally would not attend a church that is pastored by a gay minister. It’s my personal preference, but I’m not going to comdemn anyone else who does or the pastor himself. Everybody has their own agenda and peope are really not that bright if they think President Obama is going to run a campaign on a gay marriage platform. We have much bigger concerns as a nation than gay marriage and the resolution of traditional families.

      Saying blacks are against gay marriage cause they are for traditional marriage is bullsht. Most people that are against gay marriage (black, white, brown, yellow) believe it goes against God and the Bible. Period.

      Now that this church has gotten major attention, he’ll get the money he needs – and new membership.

      I flip flop back and forth on this issue myself, but I’m wondering if any of those righteous folk left that church when he talked about liars, cheaters, etc. When the pastor stands up and says, “I have sinned… I cheated on my wife… I effed with the church’s money… I made a baby with susta Berthalene…” they stand up, applaud and give his a$$ an special “anniversary” luncheon to help with child support/alimony payments. But when the pastor stands up and says, “I’m a queen” – they leave the congregation altogether.

      Why?

      I’m on the fence about the whole “gay is OK thing” (IN THE CHURCH)… do what you do, but INSIDE the church, if you’re going to preach the WORD and stand by the Word and that word says it’s wrong, let’s not CHANGE the Word to go along with society… try to change society to go along with the Word.

      I do believe the church should be about ACCEPTANCE because if you can accept liars, thieves, etc and the bible speaks against all of that, then you should accept gays. The problem I have is that we have become more politically correct than we have become bible based and that means that we “Amen” at the thought of pastor blasting the fornicators, cheaters and thieves, but he’s not allowed to talk about the gays.

      A sin is a sin is a sin and those who BELIEVE in the bible have an obligation to say, “I’m not going to DENY the Word and say that it’s RIGHT, but I love you with all of my might ANYWAY.

      As far as the church thing,if my pastor came out and said that he was gay that is not gonna change how I interpret the bible. Come one people, a pastor is there for support and guidance. It’s up to you to read the bible and comprehend it. Stop idolizing your pastor. God is a jealous God and if you start to worship false idols you are not following the bible anyway. Donnie McClurkin is gay,aint nobody prayed the gay out of him I don’t care what he says. But I bet it don’t stop all from sanging the **** outta We Fall Down!!!

      Dear Redeemed,

      I know you are somewhere preparing your e-sermon to heathens, whores, trollups and tramps. However, this post would serve as great avenue for you to come in and preach on the only subject you seem to font about. The twelve tribes of Judea. So if you’re not too terribly busy, come on in, we need something to deflect us from the way Sandra outted this Pastor, and how it’s all President Obama’s fault :coffee:

      Saying blacks are against gay marriage cause they are for traditional marriage is bullsht. Most people that are against gay marriage (black, white, brown, yellow) believe it goes against God and the Bible. Period.

      If the black community as a whole is so pro traditional marriage we wouldn’t have mothafckers with 50-11 kids by as many partners with no rings. Psh.

      I don’t believe in Gay Marriage and I will stand by it till the day I die. Why? Cuz I JUST DON’T and that is for me to live with. Do I hate homosexuals? Hell no! I just go by what the book told me and that is MAN and WOMAN. I feel a certain way about it and I respect others feelings that are opposite to mine.

      So me not being married and fukking, or being a single mother, or lying and cheating has no bearing or validity on what I believe or have an opinion on. We ALL fall short. The Good book is all about interpretation cuz didn’t the Slave masters use that same book to validate why Slavery was a good thing?

Folks above touched on the demonizing of anything black and “they” love to take phrases and terms that we use tongue in cheek and turn them into derogatory terms. Shyt, the’ve turned black people and nigg.ers into urban and thugs so they can get away with lightweight racism in everyday media.

    • Ms. Everything

      @Carrington I agree that the church’s membership is gonna go up but I also understand people leaving the church if the pastor is going against what is specifically said in the bible as well. There are churches all over the country right now not following the Word and that’s what’s wrong with the church. It’s one thing to be accepting and love everyone regardless of background, personal choices, etc (love the sinner but hate the sin). The Bible says to do that (which many people like to overlook but that’s another discussion). It’s wrong for a pastor to lead his flock in an opposite direction than the Word that the church is based on and that goes for more than just gay marriage. I would have left the church as well

      The refs weren’t paid. They swallowed their whistle more than a few times when Heat players were getting hammered! In the end it was a good game and the Heat won. Rondo was balling though. Gotta commend him but it just wasn’t enough.

      Co mothfuggin sign @ whoever sais “selective Christans” with their “selective classification” of sins. The Bible also says that you’re not supposed to eat shellfish,doesn’t stop you from eating “endless shrimp” and I’m sure evreybody who’s cosigning w Samdra was a virgin on their wedding night… Sin is sin. Point.Blank.Period. I believe in equal rights for everyone…. Not just straight people… :coffee:

      @gigi26 would you vote against gay marriage? If so, would you back making divorce illegal? Having children out of wedlock? Premarital sex? The issue is, it comes off as being hypocritical when people don’t want to enforce other sins in the bible that CANNOT be interpreted in any other way.

      Anyway, I agree with whomever said people don’t leave churches when the pastor has an affair, announces he is leaving his wife, or is having a child out of wedlock with either his girlfriend (if he is unmarried) or his mistress.

      Black people should be more concerned with raising their sons to be great fathers and husbands. And raising their daughters to not believe “I’m strong I can do it all by myself”, raise them to respect their bodies, and know their partner before they create a life with them.

      @sandra Being fruitful is for those who are married, which is why some people don’t use any form of birth control which includes knowing when you are ovulating to prevent having sex.
