It’s always uplifting to see that not all pastors preach hate.
Religious people who are critical of the LGBT community and the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage are “hypocritical,” Georgia pastor E. Dewey Smith said in a videotaped sermon that was posted Thursday.
Smith, who is pastor of the House of Hope Atlanta in Decatur, Georgia, and the House of Hope Macon, chastised his congregation and others who “demonize and dehumanize” artists and even members of their own choir who are gay while enjoying and benefitting from their work.
“We have done what the slave master did to us,” he said. “Dehumanize us, degrade us, demonize us, but then use them for our advantage.”
