The esteemed Gospel mogul Shirley Caesar is to discover that her decision to support Kim Burrell‘s Christian stance on the LGBT community has unearthed once buried and potentially baseless claims about her past.
Full story below…
As the heat surrounding Burrell’s controversial comments on those possessed by the “spirit of homosexuality” intensified, the gifted Caesar stepped out to support her.
What happened next came as a surprise to many.
For, several members/observers of the Gospel community made their way to social media to reveal that they were confused by Caesar’s decision to criticise gay men and lesbian women.
Not a lie found. Shirley Caesar was known as the "bull dagger pastor" by some. She'd be wise to sit this one down.

I’ve heard Shirley Caesar was a lesbian since the 80s.
Have you ever seen a pic of Shirley & her husband?
They looked like coworkers.

Those who have “come forward” with the above argue that Caesar’s alleged past dealings with women makes her support of Burrell’s remarks hypocritical.
With this in mind ask…
