“There’s a disproportionate number of same gender-loving people who are the heads of music in conservative churches.”

Those are the words of lesbian pastor, Bishop Yvette Flunder, re-tweeted by Atlanta Baptist pastor, E. Dewey Smith. Why is he sharing her words on his page?

Via Dr. Guthrie Ramsey and Dr. T.L. Gray’s Twitter pages, Smith, of Greater Traveler’s Rest (House of Hope) in Decatur, re-posted commentary from a discussion at the Institute for Research in African-American Studies (IRAAS) at Columbia University.

He is the same leader who recently made headlines when a man fell dead at his church and was resurrected.

On October 23-24, a two-day conference took place, themed, “Are the Gods Afraid of Black Sexuality? Religion and the Burdens of Black Sexual Politics.”

Flunder, founder of City of Refuge United Church of Christ in San Francisco, spoke on the subject at the conference held on Columbia’s New York City campus.

“Just about every good gospel song has been written by or performed by a same gender loving person,” said Flunder, according to re-tweets on Smith’s account.

The openly gay pastor is a third generation preacher with roots in the Church of God in Christ, an organization which staunchly preaches against homosexuality.
