Pastor slams treatment of gay people by Christians: ‘You’re doing what slave masters did to us’

A Georgia pastor is creating a stir after his sermon condemning the treatment of LGBT people by Christian churches made its way online.

Pastor E. Dewey Smith of the House of Hope, Greater Travelers Rest church in Decatur can be seen in the video slamming fellow church leaders for judging gay people while changing “wives like we change underwear.”

“These folks are an abomination, they are nasty,” Smith said, mimicking how Christians characterize gay people. “Tell you what you do then. Go find every song that’s been written by a gay person for the last 100 years and don’t sing it in church. Let’s see how many songs you can minister on that Sunday.”

“We demonize and dehumanize the same people that we use and we don’t say nothing about the gay choir director because he’s good for business” Smith continued to roaring applause. “As long as the choir sounds good, I ain’t saying nothing about his sexuality. We have done what the slave master did to us. Dehumanize us, degrade us, demonize us, but then use them for our advantage.”
