Jason Crosby is the pastor of Crescent Hill Baptist Church in Louisville, KY and is also a member of the Kentucky chapter of the far-left American Civil Liberty Union (ACLU) and serves on the Board of Directors. Crosby’s church, still exists in the church database on the official Southern Baptist website, despite the church being kicked out of the Kentucky Baptist Convention several years ago over support for gay marriage.
According to his bio on the ACLU website, Crosby is a far-left radical who supports LGBTQ inclusion, rights, and activism to a degree unprecedented in Southern Baptist circles.

And he even provides his preferred pronouns on the ACLU’s website,
Crosby is the “Minister of Preaching and Pastoral Care” are Crescent Hill Baptist Church.

Because same-sex attraction is not a choice, conversion therapy is dangerous, destructive and deadly…
It is commonplace for leftist pastors to embrace the position of LGBTQ inclusion nowadays, but it should be imperative that this church’s information be removed from the SBC church database.
