Never too far from controversy, gospel artist Tonex recently announced on Word Network’s “The Lexi Show” that he is attracted to men.For awhile now White liberals and their brethren in the Gay Mafia have done a tremendous job convincing naive, Black liberals that the "struggles" of being gay are akin to race. No doubt then that Tonex's choice of sexual perversion will be accepted by the liberal, Black community at large, much less the Black church despite the fact that homosexuality is an immoral lifestyle choice that clearly goes against God's word. True Christians would stand up to this nonsense because Tonex is not a Christian, he's a con artist who has milked the gospel music community and made quite a comfortable living for himself in the process. But sadly, the Black church, once one of strongest pillars and defenders of the Bible, tradition and faith, has allowed itself to be victimized by liberal terrorism.
After many years of speculation over his sexuality, the 34-year-old pastor of Truth Apostolic Community Church in San Diego said he has found comfort in putting the rumors to rest.
In a video interview on the show, Tonex, whose real name is Anthony Williams, described himself as a “free spirit,” and said he is not struggling with homosexuality.
“I think that when someone understands who they are sexually and they understand who they are as a person, it’s really difficult to label that,” Tonex said. “Other times I’m like, hm, I do want kids and I do very much love women…but at the same time we have to be honest with ourselves as to what it is that we have an affinity for.”
Tonex has released 24 gospel albums in the past 15 years and produced hit records for gospel and secular artists, winning six Stellar Awards and a Grammy nomination in 2004. But he has also had his share of pain—he had a four year marriage that ended in divorce, mourned the death of his father in 2006, and announced a short-lived retirement later that year before returning to the industry in 2007.
In the candid interview, Tonex shared his opinion on the public’s view of his personal life.
“It’s important for people to not be so caught up in who I like to sleep with, as much as I’m practicing safe sex or I’m in a monogamist relationship, no matter what that will be,” he said.
