Pastor Brian Houston Issues Statement About Gays and Gay Couple Over the Choir
Hillsong Church Statement by Senior Pastor Brian Houston
I wish to correct reports that Hillsong church has “an openly gay couple directing a choir” at our New York City campus. Hillsong’s position on homosexuality and gay marriage has not changed and is consistent with Scripture. As I have stated previously, I believe the writings of Paul are clear on this subject. Several months ago when one of our choir directors made an unexpected public statement regarding his engagement to a man who sometimes sang in the choir, it was a complete surprise to us as well. It is my understanding that they have not been involved in an active leadership or ministry role since. That said, we still love them and acknowledge that they – like all of us – are on a journey, and our role as a church is to assist them on this journey with grace and compassion.
Goshen College and Eastern Mennonite University Lose Christian Schools Due to Sexual Orientation Policy Changes
The Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) will use a “deliberate and consultative process” to decide the fate of two members schools.
Last week, CCCU members Goshen College and Eastern Mennonite University added “sexual orientation” to their nondiscrimination policies. That news was discussed at a recent CCCU board meeting. In the past, the CCCU has advocated for the right of members schools to uphold traditional Christian teaching about marriage sexuality.
The CCCU board plans to call the presidents of member institutions to discuss the matter further.

CVS Drugstore Found to Have Employees Profile Minorities Shoppers
Managers at CVS Pharmacy Inc stores in New York City required loss prevention staff to racially profile shoppers and subjected minority employees to racist slurs, a lawsuit against the Rhode Island-based company claimed.
The proposed class action lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan by four black and Hispanic former CVS “store detectives” who claimed their bosses and some store managers ordered them to track minority customers.
“(Supervisors) would give these directions even when there was no indication the black shopper was going to steal anything, and would never give such directions with regard to white shoppers,” the lawsuit said.
Former Chief of Psychologist Rips Into Bruce Jenner AKA “Caitlyn” Changes
Dr. Paul R. McHugh, is a brilliant former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital. He has written more than 125 peer-reviewed medical journal articles and has published six scholarly books. When it comes to former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner’s recent changes, he has things to say which will make liberals furious!
McHugh reaffirms the obvious – changing the sex of a human is not possible. And, instead of a liberating sexual movement, those who think they are transgender are actually suffering from a life-destroying mental disorder. Wow!
