Skip to comments.Lesbian Pastor Refuses to Wed Straights Until Gays Allowed to Marry in NC
Posted on 08/09/2011 8:09:59 PM PDT by massmike
Pastor Nancy Petty, the lesbian spiritual leader at Pullen Memorial Baptist church in Raleigh, N.C., has a message for her state: Legalize same-sex marriage or else. Until gay unions are legislatively permitted, Petty plans to no longer sign marriage licenses an action that will potentially have a profound impact on her congregation.
In addressing same-sex marriage, Petty said the following to her congregation:
Do we, Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, want to continue to participate in offering religious ceremonies that carry with them civil and human rights that are not afforded to all people? Or will it be our practice and the practice of our ministers to honor all marriages equally by only offering religious ceremonies, thus not acting as agents of the state and perpetuating the unjust marriage laws of our state?
The church has a long history of advocating for progressive policies. According to ABP, its former pastor, Edwin McNeill Poteat, was a leading advocate for progressive Christianity within the Southern Baptist Convention in the early 1900s.
The pastors who followed also took stances on issues related to organized labor, the Vietnam War and, obviously, gay rights. As a result of the latter, the church was removed from the Raleigh Baptist Association, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and the Southern Baptist Convention in the 1990s.

What straight couple would want to be wed by a lesbian pastor anyway?
Even if she wanted to ‘wed’ somebody, she doesn’t have legitimate authority from God to perform such an act and neither does she have the gift of Pastor-Teacher, so in neither case would her prayers be accepted by God in His integrity.
She’s just a loser who only does what she wants in her own mind, but just like any other person, the opportunity is still available to turn away from her sin and approach God on His terms and not hers.
Plenty of non-pervert pastors to do the job right anyway—only a loss for the church’s coffers.
Do these people ever really read the Bible?”
Probably. But I’ll bet it’s not the King James Version and then put their on spin on passages. LSM = lame stream media or lame stream ministers. How can they call them Baptists?
This is like saying I’m not voting for a democrat until Obama resigns
Her parents probably gave in to her when she pitched tantrums as a kid. Hence, her threat tactics.
I wouldn’t allow a lesbian to perform my wedding ceremony.
Or when an ugly, nerdy guy claims he is going celibate.
Lesbian Pastor is an oxymoron unless it is for a Satanic church.
It amazes me how people think they can just rewrite the Bible and be god.
Rewrite what sin is and isn’t.....it is really insane and disgusting what they do with their bodies....and call it “love”? And want to sanction it as godly? Ha ha. Next it will be beastiality. Makes about as much sense. There actions are lust and narcissism and idolatry.
Well, their "bibles" have the entire Old Testament excised as well as all the writings of Paul and Hebrews in the New Testament. Then they add the newly "discovered" spin to what's left.
Yeah, it's pretty thin.
No true Christian could allow it.
Looks like this fur trader is going to be out of commission, because NC is not going to pass gay marriage.
I’m not going to be a vegetarian until PETA has a BBQ with baby seals on the menu.
What biblical Christian would let a woman perform their wedding ceremony?
“What straight couple would want to be wed by a lesbian pastor anyway?”
the liberal type...besides, the bull-dykes can’t have a say in it, because the couple paid for the church service, the reception etc.
As a hostage of Massachusetts,I say to you: "Beware the judges!"
Probably just another so called Pastor using religion as a career because it is an easy job to have. She is no Christian!
Petty Pastor Nancy
Just how many weddings does this hag do, that her refusal would have any actual impact, except for the press she'll get?
Not the parts that talk about homosexuality being an abomination to the Lord, evidently. Petty Pastor Petty skims right over that part. Until she repents of that sin, she’s really got no business trying to lead a flock. All she’s leading them to do is sin.
