The California Southern Baptist pastor who lead his congregation to accept Homosexuality and reject his denomination’s traditional view has now been rewarded with a trip to the White House and a congratulatory reception with the President.

Here’s the story from The Christian Post:

Danny Cortez, who leads New Heart Community Church in La Mirada, California, and his 15-year-old son Drew, who came out as a gay earlier this year, received an invitation to a reception with President Barack Obama at the White House on June 30…

The California pastor, a graduate of Biola University’s Talbot School of Theology, told his congregation in February that he had recently informed the church’s elders that he now personally affirmed same-sex relationships.

…the church voted in May not to dismiss Cortez and instead become a "Third Way" church.

Response: Just a few short years ago when he was running for president, Barack Obama claimed that he supported traditional marriage but now supports the same-sex redefinition. With his invite of pastor Cortez, the President is going out of his way to be an actual cheerleader for change in the Christian community.

In some ways this could be viewed as an ‘in your face’ response to the hundreds of black Christian pastors who condemned his change of heart and have asked him to continue to support traditional Christian view. Recently over 100 Black pastors in Detroit came out against the current progressive push to identify and compare homosexual rights and same-sex marriage with the struggle for racial civil rights. An approach the president and his administration seems to be supporting.

As we have stated on a number of different occasions, every church in America will soon be forced to make a choice when it comes to homosexuality, same-sex marriage and the Bible. With this invite to the White House, President Obama appears to be leading the charge and encouraging pastors and American churches to leave behind traditional Christian teaching and accept a progressive view of same-sex marriage and homosexuality.            *Top
