A pastor went on a homophobic rant and has warned that homosexuals will die in 2017.
Pastor Kim Burrell claimed that homosexuality is an “evil spirit” and that it “embarrasses the kingdom of God”.
She also blamed gay men for the spread of AIDS in the tirade which was posted on YouTube yesterday.
Burrell is a well known pastor, having featured on a song with Pharrell Williams called “I see a Victory”.
She is also due to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres show on January 5th.
In the video, the preacher says: “Anybody in this room who is filled with the homosexual spirit, pray God to free you. You’re playing with it in 2017, you’ll die from it.”
She also called homosexuality a perverted act.
“That perverted, homosexual spirit is a spirit of delusion and confusion. If you, as a man, will open your mouth and take a man’s penis in your face, you are perverted.
“If you are a woman and you shake your breasts in another woman’s face, you are perverted,” she added.
Following the release of the video, Burrell has taken to Facebook live to apologise for her action. However, the apology is half hearted eat best as she continues to preach that homosexuality is a sin.
“I never said LGBT last night, I said S.I.N – and whatever falls under sin is what was preached. I have to do what God tells me to do… and when people take it personal, especially if we’ve never met, you know that the enemy is setting that up.”
“To every person that [sic] is dealing with the homosexual spirit that has it, I love you because God loves you, but God hates the sin,” she said.
