White House Post Bishop’s video saying ‘demonic spirit’ discourse is behind homosexuality during the speech attended by Mike Pence: The White House Live Stream is a church service that saw American vice president talk and claims a bishop causes “devilish” homosexuality.
After Mike Pence addressed the congregation in Tennessee, the preacher took to the pulpit to talk about homosexual relationships in a sermon still available on the administration’s YouTube channel.
“It is a demonic spirit that makes a woman want to be with another woman,” he said. “It is a demonic feeling that causes a man to be attracted to another man.”
The preacher, named as Bishop Jerry Wayne Taylor, has claimed “the devil” is “destroying the foundation of marriage” and is trying to “cut the fertility process”.
“Two men cannot have a child. They told the congregation at the Holy City Church of God in Christ; two women cannot have a child.”
The White House has condemned streaming the discourse on its YouTube channel on social media, with users calling it ‘outrageous’.
One person tweeted- Did I misunderstand that part about the separation of church and state?
The vice-president — known for his religious conservatism — said he visited Memphis Church to commemorate his anniversary and Martin Luther King, a national holiday civil rights leader the day before.
Sharing a picture of himself at the pulpit, Mr. Pence said: “We honour [the king] by continuing the work he so candidly did to create a perfect union with freedom and justice for all Is advanced from.
After Mr. Pence spoke, the Bishop told the crowd that homosexuality goes against human nature. He falsely claimed that you never see two male animals coming together.
Research has found that more than 1,500 species engage in homosexual behaviour, and two lions were pictured having homosexual sex several years ago.
“We’ve got to expose what the devil is doing,” Bishop said after his inaccurate remarks about the animal kingdom. “I may be beaten out in the wild, but that’s fine.”
The Trump administration last year defended the religious Mr Pence from allegations of homophobia, claiming the fact that he had met the Irish Taoiseach and that his gay partner showed that he was not “anti-gay”.
The religious vice president, whose wife teaches at a Christian school banning gay and transgender employees and students, has in the past voted against policies supporting LGBT + and abortion rights.
US President Donald Trump reportedly once joked with Mr Pence “wanted to hang all gay people”.
Speaking to Christian University graduates last year, he said that people could be “abandoned or ridiculed for defending biblical teachings” in the current climate and defended the US administration’s anti-abortion stance.
The Vice President thanked the Tennessee Church for a ‘warm welcome’ after his visit over the weekend.
He tweeted, “In these divided times we must remember the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as he challenged the conscience of a nation and touched the hearts of millions of Americans.
