Tampa Pastor Funeralized Gay Man After First Church Changed their mind and Cancelled
UPDATE on August 13, 2014: The pastor, Rev, T.W. Jenkins of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, who cancelled the funeral for a man he found out was gay, is apparently standing by his decision. Though his last minute judgement to not do the funeral caused a nationwide stir, he says he remains prayerful and strong in the Lord:
“Our trials make us strong,” he told his congregation. Then, referring to his “trials” of the previous days, Jenkins told the audience that “my family is doing fine. … Please remain focused and prayerful … and we will continue to stand on the word of God.” The audience applauded.
