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

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:
