Did Shirley Caesar Defend Kim Burrell’s Homophobic Comments?

Looks like Pastor Shirley  Caesar is currently in the hot seat for the recent comment she made while performing at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Maryland. Many are suggesting that her comment supports Kim Burrell’s anti-gay stance.

Caesar stated that Burrell should have collected all the cell phones in the church before giving her sermon. “Anytime you want to say something to our church, collect the phones first,” she said.

She went on to say:                                                               

“If you were going to say something, you should’ve said something four years ago when our president made that stuff all right.”

Pastor Shirley's comment came right after Burrell's contoversial remarks:

"You as a man, you open your mouth and take a man's penis in your face,, you are perverted..... You are a woman and will shake your face in another woman's breast, you are perverted."
