Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……A former transgender and gay man is coming to the defense of Kim Burrell saying she showed him love and acceptance.
Burrell has recently come under intense scrutiny for her comments about homosexuality.
Twenty-four-year-old Orhonde Chapman once attended Burrell’s Life and Liberty Fellowship Church as a cross-dressing, openly gay high school student. He has been promoting his support for Burrell in an online campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
He said that accusations calling Burrell homophobic are not fair and that she welcomed him with love and open arms.
“Knowing her character, knowing her as a person, a person of love, it’s totally unacceptable,” Chapman said in an interview with CBN News.
He said, “I got to see her heart. I believe had she been homophobic or had she been against gays or anything at the time me being openly gay she wouldn’t have supported me. She wouldn’t have helped me. She wouldn’t have spoken positive and encouraging things in my life to make sure I still was on the right road that I needed to be on mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.”
Chapman believes the backlash Burrell has been getting comes from a lack of understanding and is being fueled by people who don’t really know her.
“I think the opposition is coming from a misconception or the wrong perception of what she said.”
