You Won’t Believe What This Pastor Said In Prayer

Pastors regularly give commencement benediction to graduating college students but the one given by progressive Pastor Dan Freemyer is stunning to say the least. 

Freemyer is the pastor of missional engagement at Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth and was called to serve at Baylor University, a private Christian college in Waco, Texas.

However when he got there, the “Christian” pastor  decided to denounce “straight white men” in his prayer. 

“And God, give them the moral imagination to reject the old keys that we are trying to give them to a planet that we’re poisoning by running it on fossil fuels and misplaced priorities,” he prayed. “A planet with too many straight white men like me behind the steering wheel while others have been expected to sit quietly at the back of the bus,” Freemyer prayed as can be seen in the clip below. 

Those in attendance actually cheered.

  1. Its no wonder that religion is being rejected in everyday life. Pastors are supposed to be “life coaches” for everyday people and they are failing miserably. Maybe it is too much “theology” and not enough real life experience.

  3. Elitist fascist neo-nazis in charge major Media outlets, elitist fascist neo-nazis in charge of the House, elitist fascist neo-nazis in the FBI, I guess one weak-minded preacher could get brainwashed. SAD

  4. the ASS probably takes it in the ASS is yhereason that effiminate sounding dirt bag masquerading as a Christian

  5. The problem is, and has been for several hundred years, the fact that academic Christian theology has become more and more distant from the Scriptures. Every brand of mentally, morally and sexually perverted “scholars” with a PhD degrees are not only welcomed into Christian “ministry,” they are practically “begged” for their stupid, and leftist political “prayers” and speeches. Such that are actually nothing more than giving the great, big finger to all the basic fundamentals of the true, Biblical Christian Faith. Check out the Academic Christian blogs and see for yourselves the kind of leftist, Godless crap you’ll see submitted. They fit right in with the “prayer” of this great, academic, limp-wristed phony.

  6. This man is not a real and true Christian pastor, for he seeks celebrity and popularity over righteousness and piety, as he goes against GOD’s teachings, precepts and mandates in the Holy Bible, and makes up a god that accepts his point of view, because it is very popular with the secular people of this country, which he makes feel good because he, as a supposed Christian, espouses their non-beliefs and deviancy that they live for in this life, denouncing the next life they refuse to believe in. But GOD sees and knows all, to the detriment of this faux Christian pastor.

  7. The New Testament Book of James specifically addresses control of the tongue. This “faux” pastor probably was trained the same way Joel Osteen was: he wasn’t. I question his seminary degree validity if there was one. Wonder how much he got paid? The Lord will be his judge.

  8. “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture saith the Lord. Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord…: (Jeremiah 23:1-2) the rest of the passage is worth the read for those so inclined.
    Suffice it to say, I will not pass judgment upon this particular pastor, except to say to his congregation, “flee while you still have opportunity and forsake his teachings in favor of sound biblical ones. The Lord will deal with him in due time. Rather than curse and disparage him, we ought to pray that the Lord arranges things for him in such a way that he has the chance for his eyes to be opened and repent of such ungodly prayers.

  9. Assuming that this pastor worships the same God and reads the same Bible that I do, does he understand why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah? Is the USA becoming the Sodom and Gomorrah of the 21st-century ?

  10. Did you know that almost 63% of all electricity is made by burning fossil fuels with 30% of it coming from burning coal. Burning coal creats carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide effects the ozone. Less ozone means more ultraviolet light. More ultraviolet light means a warmer earth. There you have it. Its not just straight white men that are poisioning the earth. Every person on earth that uses electricity is quilty of effecting climate change. People who waste electricity are even more quilty. Are you ready to start turning out lights in unused rooms, being a little bit colder in winter, a little bit hotter in summer and taking down those stupid yard lights now?

  11. A prayer, as an invocation, is an opportunity to invite the power of the HOLY to inspire and move forward in life with faith values. This pastor appears to have know his audience and had the courage to imagine that God’s (presumed) LOVE will take these world citizens to a human growth edge of working for a refreshed path forward. I’m a Christian and my formation is in the Catholic Tradition. The pastor’s prayer, probably intuitive, shows evidence of the seven principles of Catholic Social Teaching. Easy for me to support. What would Jesus do? Reminds me of reading the Gospel of LUKE; Jesus included many the establishment were inclined to disqualify. Jesus was clear that all life is created by God so walk the earth simply in justice and Love. In Christian baptism there is anointing to be (and act) as a prophet. In our biblical tradition the message is for each of to be prophet and part of that challenge is standing up to Creaser (metaphor for Government). He made a valid and inspiring point.

  12. Our whole Society is falling apart because God is not worshipped as the Bible tells us to, no one wants to hear what God has to say, they are listening to Preachers like the one speaking at the Commencement of these Graduates. Our children have been left to learn from people like this man instead of their parents giving them Life’s Lessons before they think of going to College!

This pastor appears to have know his audience and had the courage to imagine that God’s (presumed) LOVE will take these world citizens to a human growth edge of working for a refreshed path forward, what every generation must do.

In our biblical tradition prophecy and its message is for each member of the faithful be a prophetic voice for what is good, loving and inclusive even if that is to stand up to Creaser (metaphor for Government). In a country that is proud to be Christian in our founding I wonder if we could be found guilty of living out the beatitudes. The pastor made a valid and inspiring point for future leaders to consider. The ad hominem responses seem rather harsh.

  14. This man does not represent God, he represents himself!! He s not preaching from the Bible, at least not the Bible that I read!! Maybe he made up his own interpretation of the TRUE BIBLE!! THE BIBLE DOES NOT DESCRIMINATE, God accepts all who repent and lead a better life!! This man is a liar, using God and His Bible to lead ppl astray into Satans clutches!! I hope that ppl will come to see that he is a fraud!! FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!! JOHN 3:16 THE HOLY WORD OF GOD
