Pastor runs out of money after supporting same-sex marriage

From here:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – The reverend of a St. Paul church says he needs to raise $200,000 to pay off a church loan after most of his followers left because of his support for gay marriage.

The Rev. Oliver White runs Grace Community United Church of Christ in St. Paul. The 69-year-old said he needs to raise the money by June 30.

“We lost our income when we lost a number of people from our congregation.” White said.

White said two-thirds of his followers left after he said he supported same-sex marriage, and said he was against the marriage amendment that will be up for a vote in November.

Surely the answer for Rev. Oliver White is that all the gay people flooding to his church to get married will join his congregation, tithe, and fill his coffers to overflowing. That should work.

  1. Alternatively, since his views on same-sex marriage and, probably, other Bible-based matters is so far opposed to the majority of the congregation,maybe he should resign and find himself a church which is more compatible with his thinking.

  2. Pastor: You and I both know what the Bible teaches about homosexuality. Sin is always hard to give up. Your courage is admirable. Be encouraged and stand firm. Jesus didn’t specifically talk about it (homosexuality), because it was (and is) already well documented as a sin in God’s Word. He probably wanted to see what we would do with the issue, as well as other sins, as individuals. The main message of the Bible has always been to repent, believe and live (eternally).
