Joshua Fest Owner Says Staff Who Threatened Walkout Over “Gay Christian Rocker” Need More Jesus

“Christian” rocker Trey Pearson is part of what is labeled the “accepting myself” movement within the visible church that would have us believe that being gay must be celebrated in spite of the fact that the Bible clearly teaches that homosexuality is a sin against a holy God. (Rom 1:18-32, 1 Cor 6:9-11)  According to Christian News Network:

“They’ve been really good to us over the years, and I’m not going to call them haters. They’re good guys that need more Jesus,” Aaron Diello of California’s Joshua Fest told Billboard this week.

As previously reported, this past May, lead singer Trey Pearson, known for the hit songs “Find Me Tonight,” “Wake Up! Wake Up!” and “Best Night of Our Lives,” wrote in a public letter to his fans that he has come to believe that he has been wrong for subduing his feelings toward the same sex.

“I have been suppressing these attractions and feelings since adolescence,” he said. “Trying not to be gay has only led to a desire for intimacy in friendships which pushed friends away, and it has resulted in a marriage where I couldn’t love or satisfy my wife in a way that she needed.”
