I am writing today because I am going through a situation that I have never encountered before as a worship leader. A few months back, one of the women on my worship team went on a political rant on Facebook. These rants are exclusive to Facebook but she puts on a very different hat for Sunday morning worship. In this midst of this political rant she admitted to being bisexual. This was obviously a huge red flag for me, so I immediately took her off the rotation and met with her and one other high level pastor. Our goal was to find out if she was still practicing sin openly. In that meeting she told us that she hadn't practiced that lifestyle in at least 10 years and realizes it is a sin, but she stills considers herself to be a bisexual because she believes she was created with those instincts and that's impossible to be anything other than the way you were created. After talking with fellow pastors we believed that we didn't have anything to stand on to tell her she can no longer profess to be a bisexual especially if she believes she was created that way. The reason I am bringing this to discussion to the forum is because she is continuing the same political rants now and continuing to claim identity with the LGBTq movement. Her fiance is coming to the church regularly and threatened to never come back after he found out that we met with her privately. My fear now is that she will cause people on the team and in the congregation to believe that we embrace this lifestyle and are ok with people on our team openly practicing this sin. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
