Blasphemous Minister Who Supports Polyamory Claims ‘Holy Trinity Is a Polyamorous Relationship’

DALLAS, Texas — A blasphemous Baptist minister in Texas known for his book “The Queering of an American Evangelical” says that he supports polyamorous—or plural—relationships and believes that God Himself is polyamorous.

“The Holy Trinity is a polyamorous relationship,” Jeff Hood, who holds a doctorate with a focus in “queer theology” from Brite Divinity School and who was ordained at a church within the Southern Baptist Convention, asserted during a recent Patheos interview with Chuck McKnight.

“You can’t talk about the level of intimacy and ecstasy that these three beings are constantly experiencing without defining their relationship in such a way,” he claimed. “Their love has always been and will always be a shared phenomenon. In the Holy Trinity, love is never denied. We should spend our lives making sure that the love of polyamorous individuals is never denied and always protected. The Holy Trinity demands it.”

Hood has stated before on his website that he believes that “the disciples and Jesus were involved in some sort of polyamorous relationship.”

In August, he told Jennifer Martin of Splinter that he thinks polyamorous relationships reflect the Trinity.

“Not only is polyamory a positive thing, I think it’s a holy thing,” Hood opined. “I think it mimics the personhood of God. Different relationships can show us different things, and I think polyamory can show us what the Trinity looks like.”

Hood has also outlined that he believes that because “love is love,” polyamorous relationships should be supported just like same-sex relationships.

“While there could be many explanations of the polyamorous God, the one that matters the most is this: God dwells within the oppressed and marginalized (Matthew 25). Polyamorous folks are constantly oppressed and marginalized,” he told McKnight. “God is polyamorous, and if we want to get saved than we have to figure out a way to become connected to polyamory.”

Hood acknowledged during the interview that his views are rejected by many Christians, who he called “church [expletives] that have no knowledge of God.”

“Do these people sound like they know anything about love? [Expletive] no. I ain’t listening to a [expletive] word they say,” he said. “I know who I’m listening to. I hear the voice of God, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can can love Me and condemn polyamory, for I am polyamorous.'”

Hood’s views on the subject have been met with mixed reaction.

“God explicitly condones polygamy and the whole Bride of Christ is polygamous,” one commenter wrote.

“Plural unity within the Trinity is not polyamory,” another stated. “What people want to do is their business; however, if you feel the need to justify it scripturally, at least be less sloppy when you try. Otherwise you’re just preaching to the choir, so to speak.”

“Jeff Hood is clearly biblically ignorant. His so-called knowledge of God comes from Satan,” a third wrote.

    “Nothing can hide its evil as well as the human mind. It can be very sick, and no one really understands it. But I am the Lord, and I can look into a person’s heart. I can test a person’s mind and decide what each one should have. I can give each person the right payment for what they do.” (Jeremiah 17:10)
    God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, evil men who push away the truth from them. For the truth about God is known to them instinctively; God has put this knowledge in their hearts. Since earliest times men have seen the earth and sky and all God made, and have known of his existence and great eternal power. So they will have no excuse when they stand before God at Judgment Day. Yes, they knew about him all right, but they wouldn’t admit it or worship him or even thank him for all his daily care. And after a while they began to think up silly ideas of what God was like and what he wanted them to do. The result was that their foolish minds became dark and confused. Claiming themselves to be wise without God, they became utter fools instead. And then, instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they took wood and stone and made idols for themselves, carving them to look like mere birds and animals and snakes and puny men.
    (Romans 1:20-22)

    I know love, tough love. Telling someone that they will sit in hell for eternity unless they change and turn from sin is tough love. How many parents show tough love to their kids?
    Lust and love are not the same, confusing them is quite easy to do.

    • Eldrida Urika

      I believe that some of what he said is right; God IS love and therefore Jesus IS Love too.
      The problem these people seem to have is separating the Love of a friend and the love that is Holy and life committed. There are people we love and hold closer than we do other people, and there are people who we love who are not so close but have a reason for the love we feel, like young memories with a cousin; As Christians we are to love everyone and I guess that can confuse people who’s main focus is the sex of a relationship. A polyamory relationship appears to need sex to maintain it, and I fail to understand that. I stopped being attracted to other men after I married my husband. I still enjoyed their company and have many friends that are men, but I could not imagine going from one to another lover, or anything with same sex in one bed. It isn’t me, and I don’t understand it at all, because of that.
      There is no need to have sex as the base for relationships. I had 2 best friends as a teenager, we loved each other and still do. We might have lived together if we had all moved out of our homes instead of getting married. But sex would not have been the issue, just the fact that we were so close would help the situation to a good level. If one ends up unhappy, it’s not a break up type situation and the pain will be more likely to be about the person being unhappy and having to leave, not like the heart wrenching pain of a break up from someone in a situation like that.

      But Love is a main message that Jesus had, he just didn’t have the mind of a sex focused human like this guy seems to.
      Showing the love and compassion to others that Jesus showed us does not have anything to do with sex. Nothing. This man must smoke something before he reads the bible to “hear the voice of God” and understand the bible the way he does. As another poster said, ‘the voice is of Satan, not God’ and he doesn’t realize it, or accept it. His reality is a warped one. Too bad he won’t listen to other Christians. Another sign of the enemy of course.
      There are so many apparent ways to believe in our Jesus and we have to get out there to make sure people hear the Truth of His Word, and not these others. Keep spreading the gospel and praying. We will have the victory!!
      God bless!

  • Jimmie Mack

    Wow, just wow. Another Satanic mind from hell in a mask of the church. He is a wolf and awful one at that. Beware of such evil Church.

  • Lydia Church

    Blasphemy of the highest rank! No, Jesus was not ‘queer,’ He died a virgin, is Holy, and God the Son. This man is a sick pervert who has been toking too many demonic spirited joints or grave-sucking or something. (Sadly, I jest not, this is yet another trend in today’s state of apostasy, and “emergent-C”!)

    • Robin Egg

      Grave sucking. I had never heard of it and looked it up. I’m still in a state of shock as I write this. Outright occult practice and being sold as Christian? Blasphemous. I had previously seen a video of a worship service at “Bethel” church and was astounded that it was almost exactly the same as a voodoo ceremony I had witnessed while in Haiti on mission. These people are beyond deceived. They have been given over to a reprobate mind!! Utter blasphemy!!

  • Nohman Peabody

    The really interesting thing about all this is “the Holy Trinity” is actually a creation of the Catholic Church having no Biblical basis.

    • God is a triune God.

      1 John 5:7-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

      7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness on earth:[a] the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.

      • Nohman Peabody

        His name is Jesus. They are simply different titles He bears. No such thing as trinity. Created by Catholic (universal), church at the council of nicaea 325 A.D. read the Catholic encyclopedia.

        • I am not a Catholic but not everything they teach is wrong. The Trinity is 100% real and 100% Biblical.

  • Can there be any doubt whatsoever that he is not a Christian or in any way affiliated with God?

  • Jack-b-Quicker

    Lots of this going on today. So many trying to stretch and confuse the word in order to justify sin.

  • TimothyJ

    I suspect creatures such as this filthy sodomite do not love Christ but rather are enemies of the Lord working to destroy lost souls for their own false lord.

  • Will Reef

    The only problem he seem to have is that he still believes in the God. He’s so close to having truth, he just believes in adult santa.
