A south-side Des Moines church and its senior pastor are under fire through social media after he posted the message “Gay is not okay” on its marquee.
The Rev. Michael Demastus of Fort Des Moines Church of Christ said that over the past couple of weeks, he’s had several conversations with people about homosexuality. So he decided to make it the topic for his sermon this Sunday.
After writing the sermon, which Desmastus said will be the second time he has devoted an entire sermon to homosexuality during his 14 years at the church, he came up with the title: “Gay is not Okay.”
He put that message on the marquee outside of his church Wednesday morning. When Patrick Boltinghouse of West Des Moines got off work that night, an errand took him past the marquee with the anti-gay message.
