Video: Pastor JD Greear equating preaching against homosexuality w/ preaching against slavery

by Jeremy Hooper

As soon as he said it, Twitter blew up with religion reporters and others in the crowd expressing shock that North Carolina Pastor JD Greear would use his address to the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission to compare the "good" he sees in preaching against homosexuality circa 2014 with the actual good of preaching against slavery in the 1860s.
