The odd couple

Why did Oprah Winfrey give this antigay pastor his own talk show?

Oprah Winfrey fans are very angry at her decision to debut “The Book of John Gray” on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) this week.

The show, which stars Pastor John Gray, examines his personal life and medical challenges as he advises parishioners at his Houston church.

Gray has a well-documented history of maligning the gay community, making no qualms about sharing his views on social media over the years.

In 2013, he tweeted:

“Homosexuality is no different from fornication, adultery, lying or any other sin God was clear about. It’s all the same-4those who believe.”

Another post finds Pastor Gray questioning Target on their decision to make their bathrooms gender-neutral:

“I won’t shop @target again. My son is a boy. Boys like certain toys. That’s not a gender or sexuality issue. You’ve overstepped & u will see,” he wrote.

Perhaps most troublingly, on the day that same-sex marriage became legal in the United States, he told his followers:

“The Christian President of United States believes something different from the God he serves. Anyone else a little concerned?”

We’ll update the post if Oprah makes a statement regarding her decision.

In the meantime, what do you think of the fact that Oprah is collaborating with Gray?
