What Do You Know About Lesbianism In The Black Church?

When people hear about gays in the Black Church they automatically think it’s the ‘gay black man’. When in fact, it is the number of Black lesbians in the Black church that’s alarming. Many won’t believe the amount of lesbians that’s in Black churches… from the Pastor’s wife on down. Okay, so let’s see…you have Pastor’s wives that’s a lesbian, the Usher, the Sunday School Teacher, etc. Lesbianism is just as bad as gay men in the Black church, but society treats as if lesbianism doesn’t exist in the church. Why is this though? Is it because the “gay Black man” is more noticeable because of his feminine ways? Is it because the Black community stigmatize the male choir director or musician as the gay ones?

Sadly, to say the Black church is more acceptable of lesbians within our churches. However, we shouldn’t be as closed minded about this issue. We should treat lesbianism in harmony as  much as we criticize and judge gay men in Black churches. So, let’s be real now…there are a host of female Pastor’s that display ‘butch like’ tendencies, but we continue to look over the obvious. Am I telling the truth or what? For example you have Black female Pastor’s such as: Dr. Jasmin Schulark, Bishop Allyson Nelson, and Bishop Yvette Flunder just to name a few that either has admitted that they are indeed a lesbian and/or displays lesbianism tendencies.

C’mon Black church people…..if we are going to judge, criticize,  and rebuke the Black gay man in our Black churches, then we shouldn’t have a problem doing the same to lesbian Pastors either.

Recently Discovered Video Showing A Prophecy by Dr. Myles Munroe over Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr.

Dr. Myles Munroe

myles-munroe 2

Dr. Myles Monroe told Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr. 23 years ago the difficulties that he was to endure and the outcome. This video is from a 1992 revival service where Dr. Myles Munroe was the guest speaker at Jericho Baptist Church on Douglas St in N.E. Washington, DC. Dr. Munroe prophesied over Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr.  He first spoke to him off mic and said to him that, “the enemy would put obstacles in your way but you should not worry.  You’ll have the victory through them all. You will go through great pain and a difficult season.  But at the end you will recover everything.”   Dr. Munroe then shouted for him to receive it.  Note that the information was difficult for Bishop Joel to receive. Also notice in the video that after Dr. Myles Monroe laid hands on Bishop Joel that his father the late Bishop James Peebles Sr. knelt down at his son’s feet along with Dr. Myles Munroe’s armor bearer. The prophecy that he gave on mic at the end of the video is powerful.

November 2014 City of Praise Legal Update

Legal Update 1

There have been several developments within the past 90 days that have occurred in our fight to return our Landover (Jericho) campus. It is important to note that Apostle Betty Peebles died in October 2010.  The self-appointed employee board filed suit against Bishop Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows days after Apostle Betty Peebles died and before she was buried.  The congregation has filed 4 suits against the self-appointed board.  The congregation WON the records case and we now have both Corporate and personal bank records. The self-elected board has dragged these cases on for over FOUR (4) years.  They have used our tithes and offerings to pay their lawyers. The only ones benefiting from this is the lawyers.  There are currently four (4) active cases.  The statute of limitations has run out.  There can be no new cases.  They have run out of tricks and have boxed themselves in.  They have avoided a jury trial for four years.  Their day of reckoning is rapidly approaching.  It is imperative that we pray for the souls that will be displaced.  It seems that they have stuck their heads in the sand.  Everyone knows that their days are numbered but them.

Dictionary:

Summary Judgment:  a court order ruling when a judge determines that there are no disputed material issues of fact in a case, and the side asking for it is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.  As used here, “material issues of fact” refers to any facts that could allow a fact-finder to decide against one side. If the motion is granted, there will be no trial.

Breaking News: In the case Jericho Baptist Church Ministries v. Joel R. Peebles Sr.

Breaking News II

 

The self-appointed, rogue, employee, board of trustees wants to avoid a trial so bad that they have asked Judge Dwight D. Jackson to ignore the ruling of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.

Was Bishop Joel R. Peebles Sr.,  a member of the Board of Trustees in March 2009? This is the ONLY QUESTION that the court will answer.  It’s not rocket science. Bishop Joel Peebles has numerous documents showing that he was a member of the board.

 On June 20, 2014 the unelected self-appointed, board of 6 employees who are temporarily occupying the Jericho Landover, MD facility filed another motion for Summary judgment in the case that they filed against Bishop Joel Peebles and William Meadows 4 days after Apostle Betty died.   This move by the 6 and their lawyers is astonishing, brazen and contemptuous on all levels.

 A summary judgment is when a decision is made without a trial. “If a material fact is disputed by both sides, then the court is prohibited from granting a summary judgment.  Thus, in opposing a summary judgment, it is not necessary to show that you win on the issue.  It is only necessary that you show that a genuine as opposed to a frivolous, issue of fact exists.”  To overcome a summary judgment you only need to prove that there is a disputed fact.

October 25, 2011, Judge Dwight Jackson granted the six employees a summary judgment against Bishop Joel Peebles and Chairman William Meadows.  Bishop Joel and our board filed an appeal to the court of Special Appeals who ruled that “… “[T]he purpose of summary judgment is to determine whether there are facts in dispute that must be resolved through a more formal dispute resolution process, a trial on the merits. . . . It is not the purpose of summary judgment to resolve issues of material fact.”Md. 21 1, 229-30 (2003) (emphasis added)’Returning to the instant case, appellees, we conclude that the circuit court erred in granting motion for summary judgment because a genuine dispute of material fact exists as to whether appellant Peebles was a member of the Board.   …. In concluding that appellant Peebles was not elected as a Board member, the circuit court engaged in fact-finding, which is not a function permitted of a trial court when making a determination on summary judgment …. Because a genuine dispute of material fact existed as to whether appellant Peebles was a member of the Board, we reverse summary judgment as to both appellants and remand for further Proceedings.

In short, Judge Jackson wrongly granted the motion for summary judgment because there WAS a disputed fact as to whether or not Pastor Joel was a member of the Board of Trustees.  It is not for a judge to decide issues of fact, that’s done by a jury.  A jury is the only appropriate fact finders in a courtroom.  The Court of Special Appeals reversed Judge Jackson decision. (The six employees are NOT the legal board) and sent it back (remand) to the lower court.  The six employees then filed an appeal to the court of Appeals which is the highest court in Maryland who declined to hear the case.

The case is now back before Judge Dwight D. Jackson. The six employees are asking Judge Jackson to make the exact same ruling that the Court of Special Appeals said was done in error. The fact that the six employees and their lawyers  think that they can manipulate a judge and get him to go against what a higher court (Court of Special Appeals) has ordered  casts a bad light on the Prince Georges County judicial system.   This shows the level of contempt that they have for the judicial system.  These questions beg to be answered- Why are these so called Christians attempting to manipulate the legal system? Are they above the law? Why are they trying to avoid a jury?  The world is watching.

Why Are We Called The City of Praise Church?

Many have asked why we call ourselves The City of Praise.  The best person to answer this question is the one who changed the name of the church from Jericho City of Praise to The City of Praise, Apostle Betty P. Peebles

After the death of Elder John Peebles,  Apostle Betty said during a 2005 New Years sermon, that she was changing the name of the church from Jericho City of Praise to The City of Praise.  So, why have these six self-appointed, unholy, ungodly, rogue crooks  who say they are carrying out her wishes refuse to do this?  They fought against it after she died, they refuse to change the signs, they refuse to support the name change.  They claim that they are keeping with her vision.  How?  You be the judge as to who is actually carrying out Apostle’s vision. Apostle Betty and Elder Joel
