Next month, Grace Community United Church of Christ of Saint Paul will face foreclosure unless it can raise $200,000. The Rev. Oliver White, the senior minister of this predominantly African-American congregation, voted for marriage equality at the United Church of Christ’s 2006 General Synod, and has since lost 3/4 of his congregation, largely due to his prophetic stand on LGBT justice.
He has received death threats, hate mail and in March, his church was shot at during a wedding ceremony — the assailants hurling homophobic epithets while shooting.
