It looks like Pastor Shirley Caesar is doing more than just singing about beans, greens, potatoes, and tomatoes. The gospel legend who just set the web ablaze with the #UNameIt challenge, is once again blowing things up after she waded into the recent controversy surrounding fellow singer Kim Burrell.

Apparently, Caesar wasn’t too keen on folks being critical of Burrell’s comments, so she decided to wade into the debate. During a recent sermon at First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Baltimore, Pastor Caesar had a message for Burrell and her critics.

For those involved in the Black church, both Caesar’s and Burrell’s comments aren’t unique. Still, as we move toward a more inclusive society, it’s clear the church will continue to grapple with how to be inclusive of its LGBTQ members.
