PASTOR TOM BROWN VARIETY SHOW

Pastor Tom Brown (or Bishop as he prefers to be called) has been a controversial and damaging public figure in El Paso for several reasons.  His Word of Life Ministries church has actually been deemed a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for their homophobic and anti-LGBTQ positions.  

I first took aim at Brown after reading an El Paso Times guest column of his where he spouted sickening Christian dogma directed at the LGBTQ community, (of which one of my daughters is a part of).  I wrote a guest column myself taking him to task for his erroneous positions (link below).  Ever since that first column, I challenge him every time he is in the public eye ranting on about one thing or another.

Here are some newslinks regarding his unfortunate exploits to give you an idea of where he’s coming from and why I feel the need to respond:

Following are several different public approaches I’ve devised to bring attention to his approach to things.   Jud Burgess

EL PASO TIMES EDITORIAL GRAPHIC

 

Local pastor and his church bullies ex-mayor, members of city council and the LGBTQ community and gets his financial comeuppance.

“Bishop” Tom Brown had his legal clock cleaned and now stands to lose his land after having lost a lawsuit levied against him by ex-Mayor John Cook, whom he has tied up in legal proceedings for several years.

Watch the fascinating video with a Jimmy Swaggart like scene at the end — Pastor Tom Brown – Save me – Send $$$ - NOW!

EL PASO TIMES EDITORIAL GRAPHIC

Pastor’s are called to lead their flocks like a good shepherd would, but Tom Brown has put his ego and prejudices ahead of the common welfare of his congregation as well as El Pasoans who have been subjected to his “scorched earth” legal campaign against ex-mayor John Cook.

Well, guess who got burned? 

Brown is trying to spin his catastrophic decisions to punish the LGBTQ community and subsequent loss of his legal assaults as an “El Paso vs. Word of Life Church”. An assault of the “free speech” of churches even if it was his church that broke the law by ignoring the Separation of Church and State rules.

It is my hope that people who attend his church will stumble across this simple satirical pie chart (but truer than not) and ask themselves the hard questions. 

Whose fault is it that our church is in this financial state? 

Is it really about people trying to deny us our free speech or something else? 

Where does my 10% tithe go?

A video that reveals who Tom Brown is today and who he can be if he’d take a look in the mirror.  Listen closely to the words of the song “The Benefit of Confrontation” by Santiparro, they are important to the message.
