10,000 Sign Christian Statement Condemning Pastor’s Violent, Hateful Sermon
Last week, North Carolina pastor Sean Harris suggested in his sermon that parents should physically abuse their children if they start acting out of accordance with traditional gender norms.
Outraged to see Christianity abused to justify violence, over 10,000 people have already signed Faithful America’s statement condemning Pastor Harris’s comments and sending a clear message of support to LGBT youth.
The statement reads:
Faithful Christians are appalled by Pastor Sean Harris’s hateful tirade urging violence against gay and lesbian youth. Violence and child abuse can never be justified by the teachings of Jesus Christ. All young people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, should be assured in church that they are beloved children of God.
