The Greenville Baptist Church In South Carolina Should Allow Gay And Transgender Ministers To Be Ordained

Written by

The First Baptist Church of Greenville took six months to discuss the possibility of allowing LGBT ministers to be ordained in their church asking the question: «Can you worship and live with the LGBT community in the church?»

It seems that the answer is YES because in addition to opening its doors to gay ministers, the church goes further by also welcoming transgender people.

Senior Minister Jim Dant told Christian Today that the church was in favour of «embracing the complexities of gender identity.»

He added: «What I heard was, «We need to do the right thing, regardless of what anybody thinks or says about us.» There were a few people who said, «Are they going to start calling us the gay church in town?»»

The church has yet encountered very significant opposition from anti-gay groups.
