Porsha Williams Apologizes For Anti-Gay Sermon, Says God Loves All of His Children

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Porsha Williams has apologized for an anti-gay sermon from a few years back that surfaced on the web this week.

The star, who was recently charged with battery after beating down Kenya Moore during a reunion show taping, found herself in the hot seat again today.

At issue: A sermon she gave that shows Porsha Williams saying gays must be saved - implying they are sinners along the lines of hookers and drug dealers.

"We Christians are supposed to be telling the hooker on the street, the drug dealer, the gays, the lesbians - we're supposed to be trying to save them," she said.

The backlash, as expected, came swiftly.

In response, Williams says in a video statement to People that "the sermon was shown not in its entirety," and that "therefore, the message was omitted."

What message is that?

"My heart was heavy and it's imperative for me to address the issue," Williams says in her video message, clarifying that "God loves all of his children."

Despite stating that the true intention of her passionate address in church was taken out of context, she is sorry for her words and that they hurt people.

Porsha goes on to add that "I apologize that those words hurt the LGBT community, my fans and my supporters. Life is a journey and I'm growing every day."

When she's not thumping Bibles at High Praise Christian Center Ministries in Lithonia, Ga., the 31-year-old can be seen thumping Kenya on Bravo.

Sorry. We couldn't resist. And seriously, watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online below and you'll see, that reunion show fight was pretty epic:

Porsha, really? Where was your Christianity when you were making negative comments about someone else's private parts, and then dragging them across the stage by their hair? Oh, and I can't forget this one -- asking someone if they want to smell your fake breast? (All on national TV.) If you go to jail as result of the attack on the reunion show, make sure you tell the drug dealers, prostitutes, and gays you meet in there that you will save them and that they are worthy!! Good Luck!!!!!!

Many Christians believe that homosexuality is a sin. I believe Porsha was expressing the beliefs that have been instilled in her from that common belief and she's entitled to it, as we all are. The problem with society is that we expect people who are in the public's eye to be perfect and the backlash comes when we find out that they are mere humans and make mistakes. As we go through our lives, our views and beliefs change as we mature and learn. I was like her and believed that homosexuality was a sin, but the more I learned about it and the more people I meet who are homosexual have changed those beliefs. I believe people should be able to live their own lives however they choose, she isn't evolved enough in that regard and she may never change her belief, nor should she have to. Mainstream society puts these "rules" in play and when you don't fall in line with the mainstream, you become some sort of horrible person. I don't buy into that any longer. As for her actions at the reunion, she's had no previous run ins with the law, Kenya Moore was not physically hurt therefore, Porsha will at the worst, receive probation.

Liar for money...but no different than the rest. Dumber than a bag of hair. She is an embarrassment no matter what comes out of her cobbler hole.
