A man has died after a sex party held at a church minister's house.
Reverend Mark Bidwell, who is the minister at the Metropolitan Community Church in Ferndale and a former police chaplain, Detroit, called 911 at 5.30am last week to report a man at his home had stopped breathing.
He said he met the man, Steven Fitch, 43, of Lincoln Park, on a website the night before and invited him over to his house for sex.
According to the police report Bidwell told a 911 operator: 'I've got someone who has apparently stopped breathing.'
When the dispatcher asked how old the victim was, the 52-year-old replied: 'Honestly, I don't even know. We just met today.'
Ferndale mayor, Dave Coulter, described the minister as a respected member of the gay community.

Sick. Sick. Sick. On SO many levels.
Fernwood? Was it hosted by Barth Gimble and Jerry Hubbard?
Music by Happy Kyne and His Mirthmakers?
Sick, sick, sick, is the nature of Metropolitan churches. All of them.
There is a “Gay Church” here in Dallas...Cathedral of Hope.
A “friend” posts their sermons on Facebook every week.
They are NOT a church, they are a gay advocacy group, a gay “community center” where they hear why they should feel good about being gay, from people who wear ministerial garb.
Somewhere an oxy is missing its moron.
"Ferndale mayor, Dave Coulter, described the minister as a respected member of the gay community."
And then in the next line...
"He told clickondetroit.com: 'This is not the Rev Bidwell that I or most of us know."
Really? the man is an openly practicing homosexual and Mayor Coulter is surprised he's having gay orgies????
Eww - the rest of the story is even worse. Why do we have to get our news from the Daily Mail? (rhetorical)
>>Ferndale police said they have since removed Bidwell from his volunteer position as a police chaplain.<<
Yes. Perhaps that would be best.
If he was respected, what would you have to do to be disrespected?

Metropolitan Community Church Rev. Mark Bidwell agreed. “While I don’t agree with what that church teaches or preaches, they are still a church and I have to have a respect for that,” he said of the protest. “What I’d rather see happen is to be able to go and talk to the pastors of that church, talk to the congregation in a peaceful way and let them know that all we’re seeking are the basic rights we should be entitled to.”
Rev. Bidwell pointed out that though their actions remained mostly non-violent, they caused chaos that could have led to injury. “Some of the things they have done, like pulling the fire alarm - people could have been hurt,” he chastised. “I think the fact that they could have stood there inside the church - maybe in silence - could have meant as much than some of the actions that they took.”
Bash Back! has been known to speak out against peaceful gay activists, claiming that their actions are conforming to a hetero-normative society.
To Rev. Bidwell and others, the actions of Bash Back! are harmful to the LGBT community, fueling the fears that many anti-gay believers already have about gays and lesbians. “I believe in the peaceful protest,” he said. “I believe in what Martin Luther King and Ghandi and Jesus taught us that to use violence any time, I think, is wrong. To destroy property any time is wrong. The idea that this reflects on our community can be harmful for us because all that does is it makes people more afraid.”
I knew this had to do with Sodomites.
He should get together with that weatherman that was in the news recently. They have a lot in common.

PONTIAC - He thought he was going to learn to be a better chaplain; instead, he was confronted with the bitter truth of intolerance. On the recommendation of a friend, the Rev. Mark Bidwell, pastor of Metropolitan Community Church of Detroit, signed up for a six-day, 47-hour fully accredited chaplaincy certification training given by the International Fellowship of Chaplains. Bidwell made it no further than day two, however, and left when the “spiritual violence” he encountered became overwhelming.
Toward the end of the first day, the conversation turned to marriage.
“We talked about divorce and that one of the causes of divorce was homosexuality,” recalled Bidwell. “I don’t have a problem with that. I was actually married and my wife filed for divorce because I was gay.”
” what would you have to do to be disrespected?”
It that community, you would have to be a conservative Christian with high moral values.
Daily Mail huh.
Were you keeping up with the Kardashians again? ;o)
Yeah. Dead naked male bodies in the home.............
God works in mysterious ways,
Metropolitan Community Church.
That. Explains. Everything.
Mais bien sur.
Where else can one get the latest on Nancy Grace’s “wardrobe malfunction”?
To be disrespected all he would need to do is preach the way of salvation is through Jesus Christ.
Kinda makes ya want to vomit!
that’s why gay marriage really isn’t marriage. The majority of “married” gays will be in open relationships to share benefits and still sleep around regardless of the media bs.
“minister as a respected member of the gay community.”
When I think of the disgusting things that one would have to be involved in in order to be a “respected member of the gay community” it makes me want to throw up.
It makes me want to throw up that they probably even ask you to do something to prove that you are “Gay”.
Homosexual behavior is sick, dysfunctional behavior where the human being does not reach the maturity to progress to the extent where they can emotionally and physically function in a flourishing normative, societal way.
They were damaged when forming their sexual identity—probably through the public school system which tells young children like that US Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop, M.D. stated years ago (strong proponent of “Sex Ed”), that states “that the human anus is equal to the vagina as a sex organ”. These liars and corruptors of the minds of children, create a SICK worldview (which is a biological lie) that sexual acts are meaningless. The dead man is the result of this worldview of atheists/Marxists/progressives.
It is a wonder how these sick child abusers like Koop, are allowed to have total control over the curricula of even Kindergardeners with ideas implanted which deny Natural Law Theory (foundation of our Constitution) . They teach lies as “truth”. Never allowed by parents up until the 70’s——and then a handover of the children’s impressionable ages were handed over to Marxist perverts. They want their utopia and they know how to get promiscuous teenagers and adults-—Sex Ed in public schools.
In 1970 with the advent of “Sex Ed” in public school, all perversions, plus pregnancy and abortions skyrocketed. All forms of degeneracies is flourishing after generations of indoctrination. Why do you think zero advocated Sex Ed in Kindergarten....You are fools if you allow these sex perverts in to your children’s minds. Get them OUT and homeschool. No school is better than getting the sexualized immoral morons that the public schools are producing. (intentionally—for ACORN)
He came and he went...
“talk to the congregation in a peaceful way and let them know that all were seeking are the basic rights we should be entitled to.”
AND what ‘rights’ is it exactly that gay humans don’t have that everyone else has ????
“I believe in what Martin Luther King and Ghandi and Jesus taught us that to use violence any time, I think, is wrong.”
I don’t know what religious texts this PASTOR has been reading, but that is not what those men said or believed.
The dispatcher should have told him to remove the obstruction.
“and left when the spiritual violence he encountered became overwhelming.”
I would guess he is referring to them showing him the parts of the Bible where God CONDEMNS the homosexuals, and vaporizes them and the towns they live in.
We talked about divorce and that one of the causes of divorce was homosexuality,
Boy, Pastor Bidwell is just as sharp as a tack, ain’t he???
Is that like being the best swimmer in the sewer pond?
They've got some pretty damn high standards!
Great play on words!! LOL...
And a typical twisted freak member of same.
THe MCC denomination is the big (foundationally) GAY denomination. No surprise this happened with a bunch of them.
If you see MCC, that tells you right there it’s about sodomites.
THere was a huge study about this not too long ago. Out of self-described married/committed gays, and we’re talking thousands nationwide, NONE just had sex with the one other person over a one year period. NONE.
Dies in the act of showing the other cheek and loving his brother in the fate.
That’s a good one Paradox. Ihope he didn’t die with a bad taste in his mouth.
But of course! /s
Thanks for the ping. Good to see you!
Rock n Roll, LSD, Flower-Power, Women’s Lib, Jesus Freaks, Left Coast Hollywood liberals...the Weather Underground, Panthers, Nation of Islam, the Brotherhood, al Qaeda, Alec Baldwin, Garafalo, Maher, Obama, etc...in that order.
Pop culture is leaning friendly to most of the above.
So, what’s the problem? What is it that seems to be keeping it going?
Ferndale. The gay capital of Michigan.
In Ferndale, he'd have to be a conservative to be disrespected.
Any church named Metropolitan Community Church is a gay church. So, nothing to see here.
