Oprah Winfrey Gives Anti-LGBT Pastor John Gray His Own Reality Series

Say it isn’t so! Our queen Oprah Winfrey’s newest addition to her network is an anti-LGBT pastor named John Gray. The show, The Book of John Gray, is a “dramedy docu-follow hybrid about the life of John Gray and his uniquely humorous way of helping people.”

“John, who is an associate pastor at Houston’s Lakewood Church under Pastor Joel Osteen, is just beginning to achieve success,” the Oprah Winfrey Network’s (OWN) website reads. “Known for his loud, hilarious, unconventional ways, John will give viewers unprecedented and intimate access into his church and home life. John uses his deep convictions, hard-earned wisdom and famous sense of humor to help people overcome their greatest challenges, all while facing his own everyday struggles as a husband and father.”

Well, it looks like Gray’s convictions include anti-LGBT views shown with these tweets from 2012 to 2015. We’re including screenshots incase they miraculously get deleted. As of press time, they were all still published.

In 2012, Gray wasn’t into Obama’s support of same-sex marriage:

In 2013, he compared homosexuality to lying and adultery:

In 2014, Gray had a real problem with the Grammy’s decision to have a mass same-sex wedding on stage:

Later in 2014, Gray scoffed at Michael Sam’s courage to come out:

As recently as 2015, he tweeted disdain for Target after the retailer’s decision to stop labeling toys as boy or girl:

In a YouTube video, John Gray says, “Speaking of husbands and wives, how many married folk we got in her right now? How many people know convenant is God honoring? Convenant is right. I don’t care what the world says, they are trying to redefine marriage. Don’t listen.”

This breaks our hearts that OWN has endorsed someone with seemingly anti-LGBT views. Oprah Winfrey has historically been a huge ally to our community, but it looks there has been some oversight on her network’s part with this endorsement of Gray and his views.

Reps from OWN have been reached out to for a comment regarding John Gray. We have yet to hear back.

    As much as I like Oprah Winfrey she sure has endorsed some shady folks as of late. . . I may have to consider dropping her brand.

  • NORMAN DOSTAL

    Oprah, we will destroy you for this-dumb fat biitch

  • me carbo

    I guess since she and Gayle won’t come clean regarding their relationship why should she bother about dishonoring LGBT relationships and marriages.

  • patricia

    Tolerance is the word, you want it so give it

  • NORMAN DOSTAL

    No, Hag. We run things now and have the majority and the courts supporting us-we aren’t going to support some backward minority who should know better than supporting a fat bigot! PHUCK ALL GODS and those who use gods to justify bigotry!
