“It’s gonna happen. It’s an idea whose time has already come… about 30-percent of my crowd is LGBT.” ~Pastor Rudy Rasmus
HSK Exclusive – The man who officiated Bey and Jay’s wedding recently revealed a mission that could rock the Black Christian community. He calls himself a ‘Hustler For Jesus’, promising same-sex marriage will soon be embraced by the Black Church. Know how? With a claim, saying ACCEPTANCE the one basic need required by all.
“There is one basic need that every human being has… That is acceptance.” -Pastor Rudy
Meet Rudy Rasmus… Beyoncé may call him her a ‘spiritual leader’; the streets of Houston may peg him an ex-pimp of the sex trade; and Al Sharpton may have him to thank for co-signing his “The People’s Economic Movement” 2011 campaign; but one thing’s for sure. ‘Pastor Rudy’ proves to be keeping consistent with his “going to the bank” mission. Just ask Mathew Knowles, who named Rasmus ‘Gospel Ambassador’ over a 2005 deal with Music World Entertainment’s imprint, Music World Gospel. But that deal may not have been Knowles and Rasmus’ first order of business. Know why? We’re told… the pair share “at least 30-years” of hustling history!
To be sure… ‘Pastor Rudy’ isn’t only the sole source behind recent reports of ‘Beyoncé’s $7M Gift To Houston’, he’s also head of the church where Beysus reportedly made her multi-million dollar donation. A quick visit to the St. James Church website revealed “Give Online”… and pushing ‘Pastor Rudy’ products… to be the first order of business. The second order of business? A mission to “remove the barriers” within society, with racism listed LAST!
“We restore Hope, Faith, and Love to the entire community; and remove the barriers of classism, sexism, and racism from the worship experience.” -Pastors Rudy & Juanita Rasmus
Could ‘Pastor Rudy’ be following in the footsteps of the infamous greed-led Reverend Ike? Let’s consider these additional facts: Rasmus’ documented track record reveals ‘Pastor Rudy’: his father taught him, “never trust preachers”; he credits his early trips to Church as the grounds where he, “learned how to carry your Bible just the right way”; and he’s stated, “money was God”. Just days ago… Rasmus clearly pulled a power-publicity play by turning to the media with word of ‘Beyoncé’s $7M Gift To Houston’. That’s while he plugged his new book (going for $15.99 a pop); backed Beysus’ brazen sexuality; claimed ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ Carter’s “relationship is healthy”; AND professed “the time has come” for the Black Church to embrace the LGBT community… all, AT THE SAME DAMN TIME!
“For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” ~Galatians 1:10
Peep what Rudy Rasmus is preaching:
“I will not be a part of an institution or religion that judges or marginalizes a person based on race, abilities, gender, orientation, identity, or social status… I will be a part of a Love Revolution that fights for the right of people everywhere to love and be loved by God… in the most daring way possible.
Check out how ‘Pastor’ Rudy weighed in on the ‘Holy Grail’ union between Hova & Beysus Carters’ ‘Holy Grail’ union… They are friends. Their relationship is healthy and life has been good. I haven’t given them any marital advice…
The text says that the wife should respect the husband. The text also says that the husband should love the wife, as on to the church… for that husband to love that wife, as unto the church… really means that husband is willing to die for that wife but that that wife is prepared, or capable, or willing to respect that husband.”
Here’s what ‘Pastor Rudy’ had to say about Beysus:
“She has a global platform and is doing some amazing work…
Beyoncé is a consummate entertainer, and an entertainer entertains…
Is the entertainer’s entertainment an expression of that person’s life and reality? I don’t know. But I know when Arnold Schwarzenegger straps on a 30 caliber cannon and blows planes out of the sky, nobody asks the question, ‘Arnold why are you walking around for those 90 minutes in that suit with that 30 caliber cannon? What kind of person are you?’ I don’t think I’ve heard that question. But at the end of the day, Arnold Schwarzenegger is an entertainer.
I think a person has the right to earn a living in the way that they are gifted, and I think that she is tremendously gifted and I think she expresses that gift in some amazing ways.
I think the world would be void an extreme talent if we silenced her or censored her.”
Truth be told:
“There are many people who are in the “excuse making” business. They are constantly seeking approval. In the words of the Kingsmen Quartet, ‘Excuses, excuses, you’ll hear them every day. And the Devil he’ll supply them, if the church you stay away.”
(Mark 8:36) For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
