Pastor Boots Cross-Dressing Man From the Sanctuary

A pastor in Chicago is taking heat after he called out a man dressed in "drag" from the pulpit before asking him to leave the sanctuary.

In a video of the altercation, Antonio Rocquemore, pastor of Powerhouse International Ministries, is shown openly rebuking an unidentified congregant for dressing "like a woman." The clip was first shared on Facebook by Christian James Lhuillier, who defended the attendee.
