Robert Schuller Reiterates Crystal Cathedral Loves the Gays, as It Always Has
Then again, Schuller has accepted gays and lesbians more than any other megachurch.
After all, the architect who designed the Crystal Cathedral, Philip Johnson, was a proudly out gay man whom Schuller contracted for his visionary genius--think what you will of the ministry, but everyone acknowledges its grandeur, and the Schuller children sure didn't have a problem when daddy was exhorting the congregation for millions so a homosexual could build the family meal ticket.
As one evangelical friend who works in the Christian-music business told me after reading my story on Mariners Church's own homo-hating scandal, ALL choirs in OC's biggest megachurches owe much of their success to proud Christians who unfortunately have to remain in the closet lest they get booted by myopic boors.
Schuller told The Orange County Register (whose Deepa Bharath OWNS the Crystal Cathedral beat) he disagrees with his daughter's homo-hating move, adding, "I'm too well-educated to criticize a certain religion or group of people for what they believe in. It's called freedom."
That's a bullshit statement, but whatever: Let the record show Schuller loves the gays, as everyone should.
