Massachusetts church hosts ‘Drag Gospel’ event for gay, transgender or drag queen spins on God

A Massachusetts church is planning a “Drag Gospel” event, and welcoming people of all walks of life to attend, but clearly focusing on the LGBT community. The First Church Somerville United Church of Christ festivities will trasform the church into the “Fierce Church Somerville,” according to Pastor James Adams, also known as “Serenity Jones.”

The festival proclaims that God can be a “diva” and a “girl,” and includes dressing up and using creativity, artistic and musical talent, and fashion to praise God.

“What do drag queens or drag kings have to do with Jesus or the gospel? We at FCS believe ‘God don’t make no junk,'” Adams writes. “So whether you are straight, gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgendered or still playing hard to get, Jesus loves you and so do we! Amen, baby! So come and get yours at this here church!”

Adams goes on to say that the “Drag Gospel” event is the church’s way of demonstrating the radical welcome Jesus offered to all kinds of people.

The event will begin with a benefit concert and drag show, funds from which will go to the LGBT Asylum Task Force.

Adams, as Jones, will perform in costume at the event. Adams will also preach on Sunday dressed in his full drag attire.

Charisma News coverage warns Christians to reject this perversion: “…he’s wrong that Jesus sanctioned a soulish state that would leave them separated from Father forever. God is love, and love does not condone perversion…While this perversion grieves me, with every story about throuples, bestiality, and the like, I know we are getting closer to a Great Awakening. I know this because, as I’ve written before, the Holy Spirit told me in 2007 that things would grow darker in this nation before His light shines brightly again.”

“It’s up to us to stand in the gap. It’s up to us to make up the hedge. It’s up to us to weep between the porch and the altar. It’s up to us to pray without ceasing. It’s up to us to decree and declare God’s will on the earth. It’s up to us to speak the truth in love. It’s up to us to take the gospel to our city. Yes, I believe it will grow darker and the perversion will rise, but I believe the glory of the Lord will rise and shine upon us again if we are faithful to obey His commands,” writes LeClaire.
