Kim Burrell quickly learning that being a loudmouth homophobe is not so good for your career

Kim Burrell is quickly finding out that being homophobic is not such a good career move.

The gospel singer’s radio show Bridging the Gap has been dropped by Texas Southern University’s public radio station KTSU.

This comes a day after Burrell got herself quickly axed from an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week.

Over the weekend, Burrell launched into an epic anti-gay rant during a church sermon.

She said ‘that perverted, homosexual spirit is a spirit of delusion and confusion’ and implied that all homosexuals are likely to die in 2017.

The sermon was captured on video and posted on YouTube and has been viewed more than 1 million times.

TSU is located in Houston, Texas, which is where Burrell started her musical career with the Greater Emmanuel C.O.G.I.C. Choir.

Her radio show had debuted seven months ago.

Burrell is no longer mentioned on the KTSU website.

8 Remarks

  1. I’m pleasantly surprised that she’s facing so much backlash. Hopefully this will be a lesson to the other homophobes-you want to live your life based on a religious text written and translated who knows how many times that is full of violence and hypocrisy, knock yourself out. Just leave the rest of us alone to live OUR lives the way WE want to.

    Good for KTSU! Now Kim and her kind will probably try to claim religious persecution and/or violation of freedom of speech even though that’s not the case here. Just another religious nutjob! There seems to be no shortage of them.

  3. Isn’t karma wonderful?

  4. I’m happy people are speaking up.

    I do wonder how long it will be before she and the right wingers start harping about her being oppressed and so on. She’ll be screaming victim soon enough. I imagine Mike Huckabee will be able to put aside his racism long enough to latch on in a desperate attempt to become relevant again.

  5. I can not stand listening to people like her. I am not spiritual and she is all of the reasons why.

  6. There isn’t much more I could add to all the excellent, intelligent posts already up here. I’m glad she was dropped from the radio job, but I agree that she’ll be crying victim of religious persecution in no time. I don’t get the mentality of people like her. I went to therapy for a few years when I was much younger. I have an uber-religious sister and brother-in-law who gave me nothing but grief throughout my whole adult lifetime. I asked my therapist how someone who preaches all this religious stuff can be so cruel, and she said that people who use religion like they do and (and Kim Burell does)use religion as a crutch…an excuse not to think for themselves. I have no sympathy for Kim Burell…someone I really don’t think I ever heard about before this video came to light and her true identity was exposed to the world.

  7. Oh, and in case you might be intersted, I haven’t spoken to my sister or her repugnant husband in over 12 years now, and my life is so much nicer without contant criticm and condescension. Thanks if you read this.

    @Joe – Good for you! There’s no need to waste time with toxic people whether they’re family or not.
