Churchill2004: The reason he was leaving his church in Tyler was because his sister-in-law had literally stoned her young infants to death on her front yard one evening, after being told to do so by God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
saxchick: Okay, a few things come to mind:1. Good luck finding many choir directors to chose from who don't like men. God forbid you give the job to a capable female if there's that much pearl clutching over a gay man.2. Choir = drama. Choir + Church = drama of epic proportions.3. There is often not much of a payoff in terms of musical satisfaction for a director to put up with poor treatment in the average church choir (with a few notable exceptions, of course).These choirs need directors who are not deterred by drama and are, more importantly, TOLERANT of it.Gay choir directors are worth their weight in gold for putting up with a plethora of judgmental, tonally-challenged, gossipy old biddies. Pay them handsomely and be grateful that they put up with this crap./This is exactly why I became an instrumentalist. I refuse any and all musical theatre pit orchestra gigs, despite playing all woodwinds. No. Drama.
Jim_Callahan: GardenWeasel:Really? RTFA:Yeah, he was fired after he came back under a new minister. That doesn't counter my interpretation, it supportsit. The congregation talks the new guy into hiring drama queen employee back, he presumably pulls the same shiat that pissed off the previous guy, and instead of waiting for the motherfarker to go off in a huff again the new boss, who has other more important shiat to do, treats him like a new hire (which, at this point, he IS. When you quit in a huff and then come back half a year later, you're ENTRY LEVEL now) and fires him for being an entitled dick that's dragging everyone else down with him."No longer supporting the minister" is management speak here for violating the chain of command and making trouble by acting like he owns the place. Which... is a very legitimate problem to have with an employee, and if they won't back down it's a very fireable one, because it wastes a huge amount of the boss's time that could be spent on actual useful tasks.

GBB: The Protestants protested?At least they know their origins.
Ima4nic8or: What did they expect? You pretty much have to assume that any guy who would take on the title of choral director is a flamer.
just_intonation: The last time I checked, the Church got to tell you what to do, not the other way around.
