About Me

My photo

I am the Pastor/Teacher of Rivers of Joy Baptist Church in Minford, Ohio since August 2008.  I am married to Charity since June 14, 1969.  I have four grown children.   Having served in the local church for over forty years as Pastor/Teacher, Asso., Youth Pastor, Minister of Education, Building Upkeep, Camp Director, Sunday School Teacher, etc. Also I have worked in the public place for as many years as I have preached. Charity and her sister are co owner of Union Mills Conf. (Bakery) in West Portsmouth Ohio



Is it injustice for those who have chosen to be what they want to be. 

So a person walks in to the church service and has a sign on their chest: I am gay,  I am married to a man, I am  bisexual or a transgender what would you do?

I would ask then to take the sign off if they would and come in and take a seat and listen to the sermon if they would. 

If a person walks into our Union Mills bakery we don't usually know if they are gay, or a transgender person.  We don't ask.  If they did, we would serve them anyway. And we don't make wedding cakes, but do make a few rainbow cakes.

Sexual orientation should be address.   In West Virginia a school teacher was given 20 years for his sexual orientation for sex with a five year old.

Sexual orientation is an enduring pattern of romantic or sexual attraction (or a combination of these) to persons of the opposite sex or gender, the same sex or

lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender rights.    extremely discriminatory  discrimination  based on sexual orientation and gender identity

Do we discriminat against people
