VIDEO: Gospel Singer Kim Burrell Says Gay People Are 'Perverted' in a Homophobic Rant

Gospel singer Kim Burrell said some horrible things about gay people in a sermon she aired on her Facebook Live page and now she’s being blasted for her comments.

The 44-year-old singer is featured on the song “I See a Victory” alongside Pharrell Williams for the Hidden Figures soundtrack and she’s set to perform the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on January 5.

At the beginning of the video, Kim appears to suggest that homosexuals will die in 2017.

“I came to tell you about sin,” Kim continues. “That sin nature… That perverted homosexual spirit, and the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women… 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.”


Kim Burrell Says Gay People Are ‘Perverted’ in Homophobic Rant

After the video started to spread on social media, Kim took to her Facebook Live page again to apologize for her words.

“We’re not in a war against flesh and blood. I came on because I care about God’s creation and every person from the LGBT and anything else, any other kind of thing that is supporting gay… I never said LGBT last night,” Kim says in the new video. “I said S-I-N and whatever falls in the sin was preached.”

DO YOU THINK that Kim Burrell is actually apologizing in this statement?

    Just another religious hypocrite who keeps me away from going to church.

  • Whiteley

    No, she’s not.. but I guess she doesn’t want to apologize anyway.

  • SaraJ

    Let’s see if she’s on Ellen next week…. methinks not.

  • SaraJ

    Not all religions. My priest told me in the early ’90s that a human loving another human isn’t a sin. Churches have progressed even more since then. Even ten years ago it wasn’t as “accepted” as it is now to come out for teenagers in school…
    And remember when people say things like this – they’re just PEOPLE, not God, not the Word of God. Humans make mistakes and sin. No one is perfect.

  • wildreed21

    Seems like bible thumpers are obsessed with us homosexuals…..also, why are her boots so unusually small in proportion to the rest of her body?

  • Blake

    looks like that performance on ellen will be canceled.

  • wildreed21

    Gurrrrllll… where is Dylan Roof when you need him… how come he can’t come and shoot up this church😒… #YAAAAAAASSS btw, I’m a black “perverted spirit” so the previous statement has nothing to do with race #YAAAAAAAASSSSSS

  • YupVideoFever

    Did she tell anything about what she plans to do next after ending her career?

  • Ophelia

    She’s an asshole.

  • Ophelia

    Or Ellen will confront her with the things she said.

  • Jacquelope

    Ah, 2016 claims another victim: Kim Burrell’s career.

  • FrenchGirl

    Your priest understood Jesus’s message above all

  • FrenchGirl

    She’s probably obsessed by gay life because she is miserable and they seem to have a happier,more interesting life than her

    How is it news that a pastor speaks out about sin? Everybody wants this cookie cutter sugar coated version of life with everyone being politcally correct. She has nothing to apologize for. It’s her belief. Everyone saying that her career is over probably haven’t followed her before this point anyway. She’ll be just fine. Within the LGBT community, we have more things to worry about than who “shaded” who, and whose “career is over.”

    The people of church shouldn’t stray you away. Go there to connect with God. I pray you find a great place of worship soon.

    You’re sick.

    Those rags on her head are cutting of the blood flow to her brain, which is why she’s being an idiotic bigot.

  • LittlePaperStars

    Each to their own beliefs, but I believe that love, any love, between members of the same or opposite sex, is far more valuable and real than worshipping a non-existent deity

  • HankHill/Back the Badge

    She’s right and this should only help promote her career. Look at Trump – he’s made worse comments about healthy human beings (muslims, mexicans, women) and still got elected president. If he can express free speech so can this lady. Homosexuality is an illness and she was addressing the need for helping cure this illness instead of promoting it.

  • Hugh1

    Disgustiing, ignorant has been.

  • Jenny from the flop

    look her up in the asylum and throw away the key. Happy new year!

  • Hugh1

    Hank, you’re a Trump poodle and a homophobic dope.

  • Hugh1

    What do you mean we? You’re not we, a part of we, nor are you fit to refer to we. And as far as sin goes, that fraud you refer to isn’t my pastor, he/she is a hateful, homophobic, self-hating jerk, as are you.

  • Hugh1

    Nailed it.

  • marc

    She’s clearly perverted with all this penis and breat talk 😳
    I don’t understand how religious people can be so hateful. Being religious clearly isn’t making her a good person

  • PNutButty

    That’s where people mess up. Some Christians act this way but not all. Plus you don’t go to church for them you go to church for God. All the other stuff is irrelevant if it’s not about God.

  • King Energy

    When life begins to go abnormal, destruction is inevitable. Let us not forget who God has made us to be, not who we want to be. HAPPY NEW YEAR All..

  • Sean

    I dare her to say that to Ellen’s face on international television. P.S. That parasitic INGRATE should check herself, Facebook is co-founded/owned by a gay man. She sure does love using homosexuals for her benefit.

  • Ronnie D Carney

    Oh that non-apology that she offered up is shameful. It’s sad that she can say that she’s doing what that spirit leads her to do but she breaks 1Timothy 2:9 with her fake lashes and fake hair. Those who study understand the context and allow people to be. Those who judge, bash with scripture.

  • MissTellit

    Is it perverted when Ms. Burrell, on the off occasion she’s getting laid and not stuffing her face, has anal or oral sex? Straight people have anal and oral sex. So there really is no difference between gay and straight people.

  • Jess

    How dare you besmirch the name of Hank Hill with your idiotic ramblings.

  • Happy Camper

    She only apologized because she knows the gays are about to drag her fat ass from one end to the other! Hypocrite!

  • Tracy Isham

    she is just mad because no Lesbian would want her @ss. there are more heterosexual perverts than homosexual ones. spreading poison in the name of the Lord is a sin. God don’t like ugly.

  • Danny Higgins

    she needs to read what God says about slaves..she needs to stfu…

  • Matt Parsons

    Another example why I’m atheist. I see nothing good or endearing about the god these people worship. Its just a cult mentality that only aims to control and persecute mass amounts of people through an imaginary being some hustler made up 2000 years ago to scare people. If you actually take the time to question some of this crap you see that most of these gods are dicks and not worth praying to nor are the beliefs they try to force on people anything that is compatible with an advance society that shouldn’t be held back by a 1st century superstition. If your god is in favor of genocide against LGBT people than they’re not sinners your god is just an ass.

    Ok but the crap these people are spewing is actual Christianity. I read the bible before I realized Catholicism is straight up evil. It compares gays to animals, calls them detestable, says to kill them and they deserve it. This chick is actually practicing it right. A good Christian is a terrible human if you really think about it. It makes people uncomfortable to look at it that way but the more you question these beliefs the more you see that god is not a good being and these beliefs are terrifying.

  • Johnjon

    Is she scheduled to appear or has her appearance already been recorded? Ellen might want to reconsider this invitation.

  • PNutButty

    Well this Christian doesn’t consider myself a terrible human. Nowhere in my Bible does it say to hurt a gay person or treat them like they aren’t human. I always stick by hate the sin not the sinner because we’ve all sinned some of us are just saved by the grace of God. And that’s just it. I don’t think anybody is better than the next person regardless of who they are or what they believe in.

    She has her perspective and it may be right for her. I reckon she doesn’t know any gays she cares about.

  • Joe Sauliki

    I doubt churches will change much. The Word of God doesn’t change so neither can the ministers. Not if they want to stay ministers. Very hard to reconcile faith sometimes. No wonder gays have to leave it behind.

  • Akilah

    I’m not a Kim Burrell fan I am Christian. I was molested as a child by a same sex person and when I became older I decided to become a lesbian…soon after my brothers who were Christians loved me so much and began to talk to me about sin as it’s outlined in the Bible because there are several to list here but ANY sex outside of marriage ( between a man and a woman) is sin, period! That is my belief. I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and it has been 18 yrs since living as a lesbian. God lov
    es every single person, but when we make choices opposing the Word we face consequences, but the Love of God is still there. What Kim said is true according to the Christian faith. If someone is not a Christian, then this is not your faith. If someone is a Christian we have to throw our opinions out the window and allow the Bible to be the final authority….She doesn’t owe anyone an apology, for what? You can still love someone and not agree with their choices….that is what makes us all individuals. We have a right to our beliefs and opinions.

  • Lawrence Rainbow

    Speaking as a gay person and for myself, I’m not offended by what she said. The woman has the right to her belief and opinion, I don’t agree with it but hell that’s my right too. :)

  • Benny Ehud

    How is she hypocrite?

    And the bible does say that sexual relations between two men is an abomination. Technically, it says nothing about two women.

  • Benny Ehud

    The Torah says that a man having sexual relations with another man is a sin. I don’t know what “word of God” you are referring to.
