Surprise. Arlington mega-monster High-Point Church has withdrawn its offer to host the funeral of a Navy vet, when it learned that 46-year-old Cecil Sinclair was homosexual. According to Pastor Rev. Gary Simons, bro-in-law to Houston mega-church-mogel Joel Osteen, "Can you hold the event and condone the sin and compromise our principles?" he said. "We can't."
Cast it, brother, lest not.
Just for the record, that photo up there? That's not the gay deceased man. That's the pastor.
