Pastor E. Dewey Smith of the House of Hope, Greater Travelers Rest Church in Dacatur gave an impassioned sermon, posted on YouTube on Thursday, in which he slammed church leaders for judging gay people but, “you change wives like we change underwear.”
At the start of the 4:54 minutes long video, Pastor Dewey Smith said, “And God said to me, ‘here’s the problem. You guys in the church can be so hypocritical.’ He said in the African American church you really got to be careful.'”
In his questioning to God what He meant Smith had this to say, “‘Because you are guilty of condemning the Supreme Court system, and preaching against something. But if you look at half of our choirs and a great number of artists..'”
He said, “We demonize and dehumanize the same people that we use and we don’t say nothing about the gay choir director because he’s good for business.” Smith further said, “As long as the choir sound good, I ain’t saying nothing about his sexuality. We have done what the slave master did to us. Dehumanize us, degrade us, demonize us, but then use them for our advantage.”
He went on to criticize the habit of picking and choosing which parts of the Bible to adhere to, based on what is socially advantageous or convenient, but ignore it when it gets in the way of business.
“You can’t evangelize and antagonize at the same time. You cannot insult and inspire the same people that you insult,” Smith said.
