Tonex...coming out....

This is another what do you think???

Look at these clips and tell me what you think.

If you are not familiar with his story, Tonex is a up and coming religious artist who was rumored to be gay. He came out of the closet officially in this interview.

Now, I dont have a problem with his life style and what he is dealing with. He has to answer for his sins when the Lord calls him home. I do believe that marriage is between a man and a women. I do believe that it is a sin to lust after the same sex. Heck lust is a sin. I will say though that being gay is a sin just like lying. There is no different. One doesnt trump another. I have sinned and will not deny that. My sins are no better than the next man's. With all that said, I can not judge this man for his lifestyle but I do have one issue.

In one of the videos, he was asked will he ever stop his behavior (Don't quote me. She said something like that). My problem was with his answer. I think that his reply was a weak way of saying I have no plans to stop with my gay relationships. Which is fine. Do you boo. But don't say that God didn't deliver you from it yet. God helps those who wants to help themselves. If you are comfortable with your lifestyle, don't say God is allowing you to sin. Point blank sin is wrong. Christians know this. God will help you through this IF you want the help. You have to want to repent for your sins and ask God to lead you through this.

Now, I am not a holy roller. I do not have the Bible memorized. There are times that I have to read and study the bible to help me understand. I just have opinion on this and I stated it.

Just like I have issues with Jamaal Bryant. I think that if you are a leader of a church, you need to try harder to get your life right. You are standing in front of a congregation, guiding them to the right path of heaven. Being a married man and having sex with other women(getting them pregnatn), I have a big problem with that. Yes, we are human. Everyday is a battle. The world is full of sin but come on now. You dont need a bible to tell you that is wrong. Sometimes in life we have to take responsiblity for what we do and not hide behind our faith. Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong. You dont need a Bible to tell you that!!!

Just my opinion. But just like butt holes, everyone has one. LOL!!!



I am so happy you touched on this topic. First of all (this might get long) I read about Tonex earlier this year. They said that the church kicked him out when he came out the closet and now he was performing at this Church for all gay people and gay cruises. I didn't even know he was gay until I read it on the internet. I happened to like one of his songs called "Lord Make Me Over" (I believe he was giving hints about his gay life in that song). So I looked him up on the internet and boy oh boy...judging by his appearance I could tell he was gay. See that is why I never wanted a man that was deep into church (even though I am a Christian) because alot of those dudes be gay! Sorry for rambling. Tonex is not going to change his gay ways because there are so many gays up in the black church that they accept that kind of behavior. I'ma have to do a post response to this cuz I have some stories....SMH. I have a that Donnie McClurklin and Tonex have come out the closet watch more Christian men start coming out too.

I wouldnt say that alot men deep into the church are gay.Men are a dying bred in the black church. I honestly think that young people arent coming to church anymore because they are letting older people run them from the church. The saying the biggest sinners are in the church. That's were they need to be. They need a prayer just like everyone else. Young people need to come back to church and not let anyone make them feel like they are less because of certain lifestyles...Not speaking on sexual preference but period. But thats a WHOLE other topic.


You know what your right, I guess from my experience I have made a misconception. But yeah, I think people get turned off when they come to Church because they see so many contridictions so they don't want to come anymore.

Dont get me wrong. I know where you are coming from but I didn't want to stereotype the straight men in that category as on the D.L. Does that make sense? Maybe not. LOL!! Cuz I know some men that are active/deep in the church and straight.
