(KANSASCITY.COM) – A Chicago pastor who asked a man dressed in drag to leave a worship service because he was dressed like a woman stands by his actions after coming under fire.
A Facebook video of the Sunday night encounter shows Antonio Rocquemore of Power House International Ministries asking the unidentified man to step out into the aisle.

"I hold a standard in here. Whatever you do on the outside is your business, but I will not let drag queens come in here. If you're gonna come in here you're gonna dress like a man."
People in the crowd cheered and said "Amen" and "thank you Jesus" as Rocquemore addressed the young man.
