Megachurch Pastor Jim Swilley Comes Out Of Closet
In the face of so many Gay teen suicides another Mega Church pastor comes out.
But there is a ray of hope that evangelicals will realize that hypocrisy and homophobia are grievous sins in the sight of God.
“Jim Swilley, the pastor of a Georgia megachurch, recently revealed to his congregation that he is gay. The 52-year-old father of four said that his wife, to whom he was married for more than 20 years, encouraged him to come out years ago, but at the time, he told her: `These words will never come out of my mouth.`
However, the recent spate of teen suicides, particularly that of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi, prompted him to change his mind. `For some reason his situation was kind of the tipping point with me,` Swilley told CNN`s Don Lemon this weekend.”
