Massachusetts “United Church of Christ” Hosts Blasphemous “Drag Gospel Festival”

TransgenderMost people won’t be the least bit shocked by a “church” hosting a drag show during the worship service.  What’s important to keep in mind, though, is the lengths the LGBT community will go to to draw attention to themselves, even if it means blaspheming God.  While strutting their stuff at the church event, one man proclaimed: “God is good all the time!

Christian News Network has the story:

United Church of Christ congregation in Massachusetts recently hosted what it called a “Drag Gospel Festival” in support of the homosexual and transgender members in its assembly.

    I became physically sick after reading this article…Part of me wants to rant and rave with anger at this evil…but then The Lord reminded me that even such as these need prayer for their salvation and that indeed Jesus died for them as well. I dont hate these people..I hate their sin and pray that they will be shown the true gospel of Jesus and that they will be saved.

      I know how you feel, Dan and I respect your decency in going beyond those feelings to see the need to pray for such people. However, I don’t think we should be surprised: this is pretty much what Jesus said would happen in such times as these. Best regards!
