He’s the President, Not the Pastor

Worth 6 minutes of your time.

Two quotes that stood out to me:

He is not the pastor of the United States, he is the President of the United States.

I am grateful for pastors like Frederick Haynes III who understand and respect the separation of church and state and who actually believe in equal rights for all.

Why are you so upset? Why did it bother you so? Why were you soemotional that you had to clothe your anger with the Bible and justify your bigotry with scripture? Why did you have to do it? I gotta hang out here because you do know, and I’m going to lose some of y’all right now, we often major in what Jesus minored in.

Have you ever read the gospel and heard Jesus say anything about homosexuality?

It takes courage to stand up and speak so forcefully against colleagues and congregants and I have a lot of respect for Haynes for doing so.

Thanks for Friendly Atheist for posting the video.
