Hillsong Church founding pastor Brian Houston insists that his Sydney-based megachurch has made “absolutely no change” in regard to its “stance on homosexuality and gay marriage,” after a critical blog post claimed that two engaged openly gay men were leading Hillsong NYC’s choir.
“There has been absolutely no change to Hillsong Church’s stance on homosexuality and gay marriage,” Houston wrote on his Twitter account early Tuesday morning. The Hillsong Church Twitter account also tweeted his 140-character comment, but in Spanish.
Hours later, a “Hillsong Church statement by Senior Pastor Brian Houston” was published to the ministry’s website. In the statement, Houston challenges the recent blog post about two gay men who attend Hillsong’s NYC location.
