Skip to comments.Married lesbian couple to lead prominent D.C. Baptist church
Posted on 01/09/2017 6:35:05 PM PST by upchuck
Calvary Baptist Church, a progressive Baptist landmark in the heart of downtown Washington, has named a gay couple as co-pastors.
Sally Sarratt and Maria Swearingen were presented to the congregation during worship services Jan. 8 and are set to begin their new jobs Feb. 26...
The 155-year-old church severed ties with the Southern Baptist Convention in 2012: It was at loggerheads with the group on several issues, including the SBCs stance against homosexuality. Calvary Baptist still affiliates with American Baptist Churches USA...

Being a Baptist used to mean something.
Im reminded of the parable of the church being like a tree, and the birds would nest in its branches. Jesus had already said in another parable the birds represent the servants of Satan.
I hate it when percerts oretend...
For some reason the Washington Post doesn’t do articles on new pastors at local baptist churches who are in traditional marriages.
this kind of filth has infested a BAPTIST church!???????!!!
I also have a question: Given that DC is largely black, where is this church located? My understanding is that blacks tend to be socially conservative even though they vote for Liberals. So I am just wondering if my preconception is correct, and how a "Baptist" church led by two lesbos will go over.
(by “filth” i was referring to the anti-Biblical nature of having homosexuals leading a church. it is deplorable, rotten, sickening imho. i was not referring to any individuals per se.)
Yeah if they were Methodists it would be a nonstory
You most often see references to the American Baptist Church when leftwing groups of churches publish an open letter or hold a presser to support some radical idea or group, and they ALWAYS love to highlight the inclusion of the ABC with a gleeful "even the ***BAPTISTS*** are in agreement with us!", counting on the fact that most people who see the word "Baptist" will assume "Conservative Christian".
certainly also for PCUSA?
It still does....
....this is an apostate event center
Call it what they will, it surely isn’t a “church” either, just as a debauched same-sex union, isn’t a marriage.
they could join the episcopals
That’s nice. Libertarian dittos everyone!
I’ve been there. It’s a cool building but a crappy “church”
They rent out their Sunday school rooms to groups touring DC. They have a bunch of mattresses. limited kitchen, showers etc. The price is great but I realized the place was pretty weird when we got there and checked in with Mohammed at the baptist church.
A Mighty Fortress is our God,,,
All I got,
All I Need.
I don’t think they will be visiting my local baptist church. Just guessing.
This bothers me less than allowing any islamic POS into America to corrupt its retarded and foolish followers.
islam must be stopped and any evil “religion” like it outlawed.
Jude 1 verse 4 sums it up.
4 For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about[b] long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.
So how does an active lesbian bring a lost soul to Jesus?
“Hey, I don’t believe God’s Word but you should if you want eternal life.”
Not sure that will work to well!
Cleanse it with fire.
How is it they still get to use the term “Baptist” in their name?
Watch this space. That church will be closed within 12 months or sold as a mosque
It may be a church,
No, its not! They are not worshiping God in that building. How can you worship God when you praise and celebrate unrepentant sinners. It is led by unrepentant sinners. They are not worshiping God, they are worshiping sin.
More like a Satanic temple.
Unitarians leading the Baptist flock astray? Imagine that.
How can you be openly violating God’s law and claim to be Christian? Is there ANYTHING that would be unacceptable to them?
I guess it is the “new Christianity” where anything is acceptable.
I take it these two lovebirds have taken out select books and/or verses in the Bible so the ignorant and intellectually lazy congregation thinks it’s ‘okay’ with God.
I’ll never understand how people, mortal human beings, can flip the finger at the One who has the power over their eternal fate.
Sally and Maria will one day find out that God means business.
God will not be mocked!
Must be these two have never read a bible.
They are mocking God and I wouldn’t want to be them when they face Jesus.
They are just following Thomas Jefferson’s example. Cut out the parts of the Bible you don’t like.
American, not Southern.
Its census block group is 83% white....downtown, near the National Portrait Gallery...
Thanks to the Southern Baptist conservative resurgence in the 80’s it still does.
Unfortunately, anyone from the Westboro nut jobs to these heretics can put “baptist” in their name.
They are committing what I believe to be one of the worst of sins. They want a god who they can use. They presume God exists to serve them. They are in for a number of rude surprises.
They are just going out if their way to mock God. These people and their congregation are intentionally making every effort to undermine and denigrate Christians and Christianity. There are levels of Hell and they would be better off sticking to their bath houses and bedrooms.
Now, when are we going to see lesbian/gay pastors leading a Muslim congregation. Never, becuse God isn’t there to be mocked.
The church as a whole decided to break away. Now they’ve added the finishing touch to their new rainbow church. Many smiles will be knock off besides those two women.
It’s a false church.
Has anyone told them THEY’RE DOING IT WRONG! Congregants might as well just stay home and read chick tracts.
There are whole passages in the Bible that’ll never show up in “sermons” given by these two. How can any Christian take them seriously?
Married heterosexual couple to lead anything.
Too much wrong in the title to clear up.
Whatever happened to Morals?
Oh yeah, the church ignore morals so as to get donations.
The almighty dollar is the real church.
At this rate, the next “frontier” the Wash. Post will gush over will be a father and son/daughter, mother and son/daughter, or sister/brother couple who get “married” and assume the leadership position in that “church”. I give it about 15 years.
