Pearson was quite famous in the media, and that was because of his new thoughts. The media first covered his life’s story on the topic of heresy.
Nevertheless, one of his most noteworthy statement had caused a dispute amongst many. In 2010 September, Pearson on a show of CNN anchored by Kyra Phillips was discussing a very sensitive issue regarding gay rumors. During that show, he stated controversial stuff.
In addition to having stopped believing the concept of hell, he has a rather weird approach toward homosexuality and homosexuals. In the interview with CNN, to protect the image of another fellow bishop, Eddie Long, he made a statement that had caused a rather uproaring amongst the people.
Though Long had been accused of acts of sexual misconduct, Pearson’s support towards him is rather striking and disturbing.
