Still, homosexuality is a hot-button issue and was the driving force behind the recent elections. Even as the LGBT community has gained prominence, they remain in the minority. But, the world has become much more supportive of the community.
However, there are still many conservative groups, mainly the right-wing and also the Black church community that is still very much so against homosexuality. In most cases, they state their stance and they move on. What Kim Burrell did and said was much more controversial.
Kim Burrell was recently at church, speaking, when she called out all gay men and lesbians. She called them “perverted” and then went on to say that they would all die in 2017. Those harsh words were not easily accepted by the LGBT community and they hit her back just as hard, feeling as though her apology was half-hearted.

Blogged by Senior Writer @tamantha_5 _______________________________ Gospel singer, Kim Burrell, is getting dragged on social media after a video of her calling the gay and lesbian community “perverted” was posted on her Facebook live stream. Kim says that gays are going to die in 2017 and that gays have a spirit of confusion and delusion. This video hit the net just days before she is supposed to be a guest on The Ellen Show, a show hosted by a lesbian woman. _______________________________ Burrell has since issued an apology video…but it really didn’t sound like a true apology to me. Take a look. "We’re not in a war against flesh and blood. I came on because I care about God’s creation and every person from the LGBT and anything else, any other kind of thing that is supporting gay… I never said LGBT last night. I said S-I-N and whatever falls in the sin was preached.”–Watch more at ThaCelebriTea.com [link in bio] #KimBurrell
