There are some gay groups that are upset at the DC City government for paying Kirk Franklin to perform at the DC Emancipation Day.
They are upset because Kirk Franklin has publicly denounced homosexuality citing religious reasons. They don’t think taxpayer dollars should support an artist they view as a bigot.
In an article written in the “Washington Blade”, Lou Chabbaro wrote:
“In most of his comments on the subject, Franklin has called on the church to treat LGBT people with kindness, compassion and love but has insisted “we can never compromise what the Bible says about homosexuality,” as stated in his book, “The Blueprint.”
The fact that Kirk disagrees with the Gay lifestyle, but is doing so with “kindness” and “compassion” has still caused him to be under attack. As a Christian we can still love the sinner but not the sin.
