Singer Kim Burrell has the internet up in arms after a sermon of hers condemning homosexuality as “perversion” went viral.
In the clip, Burrell begs anyone wrestling with the ‘homosexual spirit’ to pray to God for deliverance.
“I came to tell you about sin,” she preaches. “That sin nature… That perverted homosexual spirit, and the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women… You as a man, you open your mouth and take a man’s penis in your face, you are perverted. You are a woman and will shake your face in another woman’s breast, you are perverted.”
In an effort to address the controversy surrounding her sermon, the gospel singer hopped on Facebook Live to say, basically, it’s nothing personal. Her duty as a “Christian” is to save souls.
Many people however are not satisfied with her apology, people say calling her video at that a poor attempt, and voiced that clearly in her social media comment sections.
Burrell was scheduled to perform with Pharrell on The Ellen Show on January 5th to promote the film Hidden Figures.
