A Black Church Movement For The LGBT Community!


For many, the very idea of an African American pastor or clergyperson publicly embracing LGBT equality is unimaginable. You know the story; the Black Church is conservative and homophobic. That story is shifting. While the larger society has grown in support of LGBT people and their families, pastors and church members in black religious settings have engaged in 'Many Voices' dialogues, seminars, and discussions, and forged deep relationships over the last four years.

Rev. Cedric A. Harmon, President, Many Voices: A Black Church Movement for LGBT Justice. Speaker, writer, standing for human rights based on profound faith. 


 Now three are speaking out through Many Voices' video campaign launched on October 7. The campaign features the voices of Southern Black clergy who have broken through disbelief and resignation. These clergy tell how they hold fast to their faith and support LGBT people and their families.

  1. Surely this is a site well worth seeing.

  2. Why is it that Southern Black clergy are stepping up and speaking up for LGBT rights. Could it be that they are the "true " civil rights leaders with the history of fighting for justice for all?

  3. The " pastor" conveniently forgot to quote the latter part of that scripture he used. It says, teaching them to obey all things I have commanded you. The New Testament, as well as the OT, denounces homosexuality, anyone who denies this fact, will find themselves at odds with God/Jesus. Either way, it's been written that some will fall away from the truth, some will not endure sound teaching, will gather preachers to tickle their ears.. Saying that which is pleasing to them, yet contrary to God's I changing word. Lastly, we can be confident that God's sheep will hear his voice, and a stranger they will not follow.
