Black Pastor Denounces Scholarships to Gay Students

A conservative black pastor is speaking out against the decision made by Michigan State University (MSU) to provide a scholarship for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans-gender students of color.”

The new scholarship for homosexual students of color will be available next spring at MSU and administered by the school’s Office of Financial Aid and Office of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans-gender) Concerns.

Bishop Ira Combs, Jr., of Jackson, who is an alumnus of MSU, said the scholarship is "nonsense," merely reflecting the role played by homosexual organizations and other liberal groups to redefine American culture by eliminating moral boundaries.

"The only one that probably will be able to stop them in the end will be God, because they will not be stopped; they will always try to find other ways to push and promote their immoral agenda," he asserted. "It's unfortunate that the university has embraced this corrupt ideology and has not taken a stand for traditional values."

Combs, the founder and pastor of the Greater Bible Way Temple and an ordained elder of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc., pointed out that the homosexual activism at MSU has been continuing for years, spreading its agenda on university campuses. However he showed absolute faith in gaining victory over the issue as he urged people to continue to fight homosexual activism.

"This is an attack by individuals who are secularist, humanist, socialist, communist and [who] embrace all of these particular philosophical doctrines to try eradicate from within -- and we have to continue to fight to prevent them from doing this. And we shall and will do so," he said. "In the end, we shall prevail."
