Capitol Ministries President Ralph Drollinger, who leads a weekly Bible study at the White House, is being slammed by the leftist media and pro-LGBT groups for his views on homosexuality, gender roles and the Catholic Church.
Drollinger – who played basketball for UCLA on a scholarship and later in the NBA for the Dallas Mavericks – is now a pastor who oversees a Bible study in the nation’s capital, and his views on LGBT issues, Catholic teachings, and women teaching men in the Word have recently been attacked by the leftist mainstream media (BBC and Newsweek) and by LGBT activist groups, including the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and OutRight Action International.
Taking heat for teaching the Christian Gospel instead of the social gospel
The Bible study, which includes Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Energy Secretary Rick Perry – just to name a few – is under fire for not ascribing to politically correct worldviews on a number of social issues.
“The outspoken pastor has sparked controversy for his views on women, same-sex relationships and Catholicism,” Newsweek reported. “As a result, progressive campaigners have objected to Drollinger’s regular meetings with high-ranking U.S. politicians, and fear the influence he could have on their political outlook.”
One of the 7-foot-tall 63-year-old’s “controversial” views that has recently been brought under scrutiny has to do with his biblical teaching same-sex “marriage.”
“Homosexuality and same-sex ceremonies are illegitimate in God’s eyes,” Drollinger taught during a Bible study session earlier this year that is posted on Capital Ministries’ website. “His word is repetitive, perspicuous [clearly expressed], and staid on the subject.”
