DAILYKENN.com --Pastor Justin Hoke has resigned.
The Presbyterian pastor called it quits after hordes of homosexuals and their backers descended on the church Sunday.
At issue was a sign placed by the pastor that read, “Bruce Jenner is still a man. Homosexuality is still sin. The culture may change. The Bible does not.”
Reports say one family at Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church supported their pastor. Other families either left the church or affirmed their plans to leave.
Below is the minister's resignation announcement via Facebook:
As of today, I am no longer the pastor of Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church.
After much prayer and counsel, I have decided that it is best to briefly communicate what has taken place.
1. I was informed by our other elder that he felt he could no longer follow my lead as Pastor of TBPC.
2. I was informed that essentially all but one couple in membership would leave the church if I continued as pastor of TBPC.
3. Our other elder and the couple felt that those who left would likely return if I would leave.
4. Our other elder was agreeable to stay and assume the pastoral responsibilities.
Therefore it was determined that it would be in the best interest of the local body for us (TBPC and the Hoke family) to part ways.
