Pastor Clifton Davis (you might remember him from the show Amen) is speaking out about homosexuality. He says he does not have a problem with it; but feels they are living in sin, and should not be at church:

“It seems as though gay lifestyle has become commonplace. I have nothing against someone who is gay. They have the freedom to live their life, but in the house of God — although He loves them in their sin — He wants them out of it. I love my gay friends, but I would rather see them walk in accordance with the Word of God…and I sure don’t want to see women kissing [women] on the air. I’m offended by it.”

‘Amen’ star Clifton Davis spoke in the annual “Love & Holiday Issue” of ‘Gospel Today’ magazine about the current themes on television programming. The 63-year-old actor, who has also starred in the film ‘Any Given Sunday’ and appeared on shows like ‘Living Single,’ ‘Grace Under Fire’ and ‘Half & Half,’ is an ordained minister who has been preaching in pulpits across the country for the last 25 years.

Reverend Clifton has gay friends???

    Let him without sin cast the first stone. Jesus accepted everyone. We need to stop practicing divide and conquer on all levels. I am personally not down with the whole gay lifestyle but it isn’t mine and I will not judge.

    Remember that new gey comic hero we are supposed to have?????

    Well, folks….introducing…..BATTY MAN!!

    (in jamacian batty means “butt” or “ass”).

    no one can judge, however if you believe in the bible and you go to church then you must follow what is stated in the bible….everyone seems to forget that….the whole point is to refrain from doing those things that are not pleasing to God…i.e. stealing, lying, cheating….you can’t claim to be a Christian and go to church but continue to lie, ask for forgivness but continue to lie…the same thing that Clifton Davis is saying

    There is this new trend going around certain chruchs that it’s ok to be gay. I have several openly gay men that attend chruch with me every sunday, but they are not allowed to get involved in any of the chruch activities. They are however allowed to donate money! how stupid! I would never play along with any religion that does not agree with my lifestyle or sexuality. I don’t have a proble with gays even being married, but i would not allow them to marry within a chruch. Gay couples should have the same legal rights that married straight couples have.

    I ain’t mad at him but I do agree with that minister of music comment. He’s aged pretty well too.

    Ok… so are all the Fri/Sat night club girls, drug addicts, and people shacking up or with out of wedlock children banned from church, too????

    What about all these people planning to claim someone else’s kids on their tax returns? (liars)

    People kill me. Always trying to act like one sin is bigger than the other.

  • Linwood Rose

    I thought church was for sinners? If he thinks they’re sinners shouldn’t he want them in church? The more the better right?

  • dee

    What an ass. He clearly has a problem with it if he doesn’t want gay and lesbian individuals to attend church. Oh and why the hell did bossip place the most flagrant guy to represent a gay person. You know we are also doctors, teachers lawyers and people who also are professionals contributing to society rather than a played out foolish image like the one bossip posted. Is it me or does bossip really enjoy ridiculing gays and lesbians?

  • lala

    Soooo, unwed parents shouldn’t be allowed to go to church either since they’re obviously living in sin….right? Premarital sex is a sin….

    Dee:

    Bossip is full of shit on a lot of levels.

  • jayda

    contradiction. he must be christian. smh

  • jayda

    @Dee

    bossip really does. its a gossip site its meant to provoke arguments and poke fun. kinda gotta roll with it i guess.

    @ TiVo

    “You can NOT be in the church and worship God and be gay. It is a living contradiction.”

    So, again, are unwed parents, shackers, etc. supposed to stay out of church, too?

  • BB

    @ Linwood Rose

    I thought so too, Church is supposed to be a hospital for sinners is it not? How dare he turn away any of God’s creatures, but I bet he’ll take their money.

  • c from stl

    I honestly thought he was gay for a very long time…oh well, I must have been mistaken.

    how else are they going to get saved if they are not in church. I hate church folk sometimes

    @Tivo

    don’t quote the “word of god” when judging people, you are the contradiction. god said don’t kill then don’t kill its very black and white. don’t mold and shape the bible to fit your view of life. either you follow that shit or you don’t.

    who said “so called sinners” cant go to church? then what the heck is the point of a church?

    do you see the stupidity of it?
