This aspiring gay pastor’s impassioned plea for acceptance is rocking the internet

A gay aspiring pastor’s impassioned plea for acceptance has gone viral.

Jeffrey Warren attended the United Methodist Church’s General Conference this week in St. Louis.

Yesterday, the conference decided to strengthen its anti-gay stance, adopting penalties for individual churches that violate its ban on marriage for same-sex couples and LGBT people in the clergy, reaffirming its 1972 statement that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.”

Warren tried to explain to the other delegates why the homophobic policy would be harmful to both the church and Christianity.

“The pain that would happen from this crucifixion of putting the nails in our Methodist Church, the pain of this death might be worth a resurrection,” he said.

He explained that his ministry on his campus got more people to go to church by being accepting of LGBT people.

“We have brought people to Jesus because they said they have not heard this message before,” he said.

“They didn’t know God could love them because their churches said God didn’t.”

The video has over 60,000 views on Facebook.
