Pastor Kim Burrell has gone on a massive anti-gay rant, warning all homosexuals will die in 2017.

Claiming homosexuality is an evil spirit, Burrell blames gay men for the spread of AIDS and says homosexuality embarrasses the kingdom of God.

The gospel singer, featured on a song with Pharrell Williams entitled I See a Victory, tells the congregation: ‘Anybody in this room who is filled with the homosexual spirit, pray God to free you.’

‘[If] you’re playing with it in 2017, you’ll die from it,’ she warns.

She continues: ‘That perverted, homosexual spirit is a spirit of delusion and confusion.

‘If you, as a man, will open your mouth and take a man’s penis in your face, you are perverted.’

‘If you are a woman and you shake your breasts in another woman’s face, you are perverted.’

The congregation reacts with praise, yelling out ‘preach’ and ‘it’s real’ from the crowd.

But the reaction against Kim Burrell online has been swift and damning, so much so that she posted an apology video explaining her actions.

She talks about her enemies wanting to take her down, by only posting a small part of her sermon.

Yet, in the video, she continues to preach that the act of homosexuality is a sin and she does not blame the person: ‘I never said LGBT last night, I said S.I.N – and whatever falls under sin is what was preached.’

‘I have to do what God tells me to do… and when people take it personal, especially if we’ve never met, you know that the enemy is setting that up,’ she tries to explain.

‘To every person that [sic] is dealing with the homosexual spirit that has it, I love you because God loves you, but God hates the sin.’

Pastor Burrell is due to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on January 5.
