Tye Tribbet: 'I don't condemn homosexuality'

In a society where Christians are judged greatly on their opinion of the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it's not often we hear a high profile Gospel singer and well known faith leader speak with understanding regarding the controversial subject. Tye Tribett has done just that and has set off a firestorm in the Christian community.

In an interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine, the gospel artist said he does not condemn homosexuality and believes that it's natural.

Referencing the way pastors deal with homosexuality, Tribbett said

“I just think their approach is militant, and I think a lot of times when your sin is not somebody else’s sin, it’s so much easier to condemn. It makes you feel better about your dysfunctions when another person’s dysfunctions are seemingly worse.”

The Grammy© Award winner also said he believes homosexuality is as natural as lying.

"There are several things that come naturally that’s not God’s best. Children 2 years old, “Did you eat that cookie?” “No.” Lying came naturally to them.

” Nobody taught that kid how to lie. It came in the flesh package, but that’s not God’s best. There are certain things that can trigger the not-so-great natural in all of us. But is it God’s will or God’s best for us, period? And I don’t condemn homosexuality, but I don’t believe it’s God’s best for our lifestyle, according to the Bible.

Tribett was raised in a Pentecostal Apostolic church in Camden, New Jersey. His father is a pastor and his mother a minister.

Look for the complete interview in the April 2014 edition of Sister 2 Sister magazine.
