Tye Tribbett, award-winning gospel recording artist, shared recently that although he agrees that homosexuality may be "natural," he does not believe it is "God's best for our lifestyle, according to the Bible."
Speaking exclusively to Sister 2 Sister magazine about his observations on how some churches approach dealing with congregants who may experience same-sex attraction, Tribbett said he agreed with the interviewer's suggestion that homosexuality was "natural," but made it clear that he does not believe God approves of it.
"There are lots of things that are natural to us that may not be God's best for us," he told the publication, which is featuring his interview in its April issue. "That's my only thing. I'm not saying that homosexuality is not natural. I agree with you that it is. There are several things that come naturally that's not God's best. Children 2 years old, 'Did you eat that cookie?' 'No.' Lying came naturally to them." more >>
Le'Andria Johnson, award-winning singer, groundbreaking "Sunday Best" champ and Christian minister, has prompted confusion among some of her supporters after she shared photos of a revealing dress she wore to the 2014 BET Celebration of Gospel held over the weekend at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.
"Why [is] her cleavage showing so much," asks fan Eraina Wilborne on Facebook, where Pastor Johnson shared photos of one outfit she wore to the BET event. "Personally I practically LOVE her story and not to mention her passion but I just I am just (sic) very surprised she is showing so much at a gospel event......between her and Meagan Goode (sic) I just wonder who they're trying to arouse, their husbands or America....I'm just saying."
Another admirer, Yvette Weathersby, responded in kind, writing, "I don't get it. Beautiful dress, but as a representative of Christ her clothing needs to be less revealing." more >>
Bizzle, a Christian rapper that recently made headlines for his response to Macklemore's "Same Love" expressed his opinion on rapper Jay Z's involvement with alleged secret society the Illuminati this week.
In an interview with hip-hop media outlet VladTV, Bizzle was asked what he thought about artists such as Rihanna, Jay Z and Kanye West being involved with it.
"I don't think he's down at a respected level," said the rapper regarding Jay Z. "If anything I would say [he's] a puppet. I don't want to say [it's definite], but that's what I believe." more >>
When I got married, the ceremony included our friends and family. That special day was meant to make our covenant public only to those who would value its meaning in our lives.
But who is it who dreams of getting married in a mass publicity stunt on an annual television broadcast mostly known for pushing the FCC Indecency Standards to their breaking point? That was exactly what happened to 33 couples (some heterosexual and some homosexual) as they exchanged marriage vows on the 2014 Grammy Awards show. The ceremony was presided over by Queen Latifah and accompanied by a performance of Same Love by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and later Open Your Heart by Madonna. As a viewer, it was a little difficult to know if the spectacle was supposed to be persuasive or merely exhibitionist.
Whatever was behind the Grammy's display, Americans are becoming more widely accepting of both homosexual behavior and the redefinition of marriage to include homosexual relationships. This has been due to a relentless, extremely well funded propaganda campaign by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) activists. And to their credit, they have succeeded in persuading large numbers of Americans that homosexual behavior is-if not normal and healthy-at least harmless and, in some bizarre sense, courageous. The cultural holdouts during this national opinion shift-or national loss of common sense, some might say-have been African Americans. For years, as white opinion grew more and more favorable to the idea of homosexual "marriage," black opinion on the matter refused to budge. This led first to rage; I have written in the past about the racial epithets hurled at blacks in California in the wake of the passage of Proposition 8, which affirmed the traditional definition of marriage. (These incidents were almost completely ignored by mainstream media, and ironically their victims included black homosexuals who opposed Proposition 8.) more >>

Well, it ain't "Let It Go." At least, that was the first thought that ran though my mind when I saw that yet another amateur "Frozen" had gone viral.
