Hateful Florida Rev. T.W. Jenkins Stands By His Decision To Deny Gay Man Funeral

Evil Rev Jenkins
The despicable Rev. T.W. Jenkins of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Tampa, Florida who last week who cold-heartedly canceled at man’s funeral at the last minute after discovering the man was gay and married is standing by his decision and isn’t apologizing for his actions, saying that the ‘trials’ his church is facing in the public eye have “come to make us stronger.”

WTSP  the station that broke the story did a follow-up visit to the Mt. Hope church on Sunday and reports that they were initially not allowed into the building, but were permitted to enter 40 minutes after the service began

In the video below, Jenkins talks about his family’s well-being and thanks his congregation for their prayers.

“My family is doing fine,” he said to claps from the audience. “Church family please remain focused and prayerful … and we will continue to stand on the word of God.”

THIS is “Christianity”?  A bunch of people who applaud themselves for denying a human being dignity in death? The sheer inhumanity and offensiveness of this while parading their hate of those who are different while hiding behind “religion” is beyond appalling.

Pastor Jenkins should be tarred and feathered, his hateful congregation horse-whipped and his “church” brunt to the ground and the land sowed with salt.

And that would be too good for them.

 

 

Florida Baptist Church Cancels Man’s Funeral At The Last Minute After They Find Out He Was Gay

Satan Church New Hope Baptist

Totally despicable and disgusting and so heinous.  Something I have not seen since the 1980’s when Funeral Homes refused to bury deceased AIDS patients…….

Less than 18 hours before his husband’s funeral, Kendall Capers was told that the funeral service service was cancelled at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Tampa, FL because members of the congregation and the Pastor of the church read his partners obituary and discovered he was survived by a “husband”. “

Based on our preaching of the scripture, we would have been in error to allow the service in our church,” said New Hope Missionary Baptist’s Pastor T.W. Jenkins. “I’m not trying to condemn anyone’s lifestyle, but at the same time, I am a man of God, and I have to stand up for my principle Jenkins,said who peaches against same-sex marriage, and that it would be “blasphemous” to hold the funeral at his church, reported WFLA-TV.

It was devastating,” said Julie Atwood mother of Julion Evans, who was 42 at the time of his passing. “I did feel like he was being denied the dignity of death.”

“Everyone who knew us knew about our relationship,” Kendall Capers said. “We didn’t keep secrets.”

The family asked for Evans’ funeral to be held at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Tampa. Atwood, Evans’ mother, says she was baptized at the church as a child and several of her family members still attend. Atwood’s current pastor agreed to preach the funeral, but they needed a large church, like New Hope, to accommodate hundreds of mourners from across the country. New Hope agreed and the service was scheduled for July 26.

But when the obituary published in the local newspaper, everything changed.

Because of the abrupt change of plans, Evans’ family scrambled to make new funeral arrangements, and were not unable to notify everyone, and some mourners showed up at the hateful church and missed the funeral.

“I know there are other people that are probably going to be in the same shoes Julion and I were in. I feel like it’s a wrong doing, and nobody should be in those shoes,” Capers said “This is 2014, this is not the 60s or the 70s,. And att the end of the day I just want his wrong-doing to be exposed.”

Westboro Baptist Church Vows To Picket GLEE Star Cory Monteith’s Funeral

Most evil

While the White House refuses to officially recognize that the Westboro Baptist Church  is a hate group after receiving five separate petitions with nearly 675,000 signatures demanding that they do so.  And the IRS allows to let WBC keep their tax-exempt status. Just  hours after the tragic death of GLEE actor Corey Monteith ,  Shirley Phelps – Roper the de-facto leader of the human excrement filled “church” tweeted  that the WBC would be picketing the Monteith’’s funeral, claiming he was “struck down by raging mad God” for working as a “fag enabler” alongside Chris Colfer, who stars as the show’s openly gay teenager.

Roper, who expressed joy for the death of children in Oklahoma’s recent tornadoes and the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings, then took the time to tweet individual members of the Glee cast to “Praise God Almighty” for the untimely death of their co-star.

Fortunately with Monteith being from a civilized country like Canada, that recognizes hate and evil for what it is ulike the USA the WBC may not get a chance to take their freak-show north.  The hate group was turned away at the Canadian border in 2008 after planning to protest the funeral of a 22-year-old murder victim, and has officially been banned from preaching anywhere in Great Britain.

No President Obama and the White House.  The WBC is not a hate group at all.

Insane.
