Gospel singer/preacher Kim Burrell is coming under fire after a video of her preaching about gay people goes viral. In the clip, she calls gay people “perverted” and she even name drops Bishop Eddie Long. Oh? Get it all inside…
Rev. Kim Burrell is receiving negative backlash after going on a rant against homosexual people during one of her sermons before her congregation.
The gospel singer aired the sermon via Facebook Live where she called gay people “perverted” and seemingly suggests that gay people will die in 2017.
In the beginning of the clip, she told anyone who was suffering from the “homosexual spirit” to ask God for freedom.
“Anybody in this room who’s dealing with the homosexual spirit, beg God for freedom. And play with it in 2017 and you’ll die from it,” she said.
“I came to tell you about sin, 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.”
The 44-year-old also mentioned Bishop Eddie Long (who was accused of participating in homosexual acts), commenting that it’s heartbreaking to see him “going down to nothing.” In case you missed, peep his most recent pics HERE.

After the video started making its rounds, folks began hitting up her social media accounts bashing her over the sermon. She returned to Facebook to try and clarify her comments. She said she NEVER said all gay people were going to hell, however she did offer up an apology of sorts. She explained,
“We’re not in a war against flesh and blood. I came on because I care about God’s creation and every person from the LGBT and anything else, any other kind of thing that is supporting gay. I never said LGBT last night. I said S-I-N and whatever falls in the sin was preached.”
“All of y’all that’s so upset…that’s incompetent, it’s childish, it’s not of my nature, natural or spiritual. People are going to believe what they want to believe. People who know me, they know better than what they’re trying to make it look like. It’s like y’all want to be mad.”

Since she's featured on the track "I See a Victory" alongside Pharrell Williams for the Hidden Figures soundtrack, we're sure folks will be asking her about the viral video once she hits the promo trail. Also, she's scheduled to perform the track on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" on January 5th. That should be interesting.
