Another touching piece from Randy Roberts Potts

I had featured Oral Roberts grandson in a post about a year ago. This sermon is as touching as his It Get’s Better video and a lot less angry.

Sermon delivered on Sunday, July 17, 2011, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Randy Roberts Potts, Guest Minister.

  1. Enjoyed hearing about you love the sinner but hate the sin I’m sure your grandfather loved you as do I.

    • Rev. John Shelby Spong summed up the sinner/sin business best:

      “I will no longer listen to that pious sentimentality that certain Christian leaders continue to employ, which suggests some version of that strange and overtly dishonest phrase that “we love the sinner but hate the sin.” That statement is, I have concluded, nothing more than a self-serving lie designed to cover the fact that these people hate homosexual persons and fear homosexuality itself, but somehow know that hatred is incompatible with the Christ they claim to profess, so they adopt this face-saving and absolutely false statement.”
