Pastors Respond To Caitlyn Jenner's Visits To Their Church

Conflict. That might be how one could describe the situation with Caitlyn Jenner (formerly, Bruce Jenner) visiting two prominent Houston churches that stood against an ordinance allowing transgenders to use whatever bathroom they want.

On the one hand, you want to act like Jesus and show love to every person. On the other hand, you want to know why Jenner is really visiting the churches. You get both reactions from pastors in this Christian Post article. 

Pastor Ed Young Jr. is the son of Pastor Ed Young Sr. who opposed the transgender ordinance. He tweeted these photos after watching his dad pray with Jenner.

The Christian Post also reports that "Jenner also attended a family Christmas service at Grace Church Houston, whose founding pastor, Steve Riggle, was also against the ordinance championed by lesbian Houston Mayor Annise Parker, which was passed by the city council in May 2014."

Pastor Ed Young Sr. responded very graciously to Jenner.   However, another pastor also voiced the other side of the conflict: the question of motives. 

Rev. Dave Welch, executive director of U.S. Pastor Council, said, "The photo ops conducted by Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner in at least two Houston megachurches who were very active in defeating Mayor Parker's Bathroom Ordinance, were transparent and prove that the battle for decency, freedom and faith is far from over. The tragic stories of Mr. Jenner and those like him who have become confused about how God designed them as male or female, call for our compassion to help heal them, and our determination to never let their plight be our new normal."

What do you think of Jenner's church visits? How would you respond if you were the pastor? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments!
