Skip to comments.Church: Stop being 'evangelly-fish' (Christian = the new Negro)

What is this world coming to? Another day brings another definition of love, marriage, religion, truth, civil rights and the church.
Can anyone remember when there was more confusion? Only in a culture bombarded by "tolerance" could these issues be debated with any seriousness.
It has been said loudly and proudly that gay marriage is a civil-rights issue. If that's the case, then gays would be the new African-Americans. I'm here to tell you now, and hopefully for the last time, that the gay community is not the new "African-American" community. In fact, I think Christians are the new Negro but that's an issue for a follow-up column.
In 2005, the Rev. Jesse Jackson stated that the fight of gays and lesbians wanting to marry should not be compared to the fight African-Americans faced for civil rights. The comparison of the plight of the gay community to slavery is a stretch; remember, gays were never called "three-fifths" human, according to the Constitution, and they did not require the Voting Rights Act to gain the same democratic rights as whites.
What is this world coming to when you see the likes of myself, a conservative African-American, and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a liberal African-American, both agreeing on the same subject?
Recently, over 100 black clergy met in Atlanta to publicly object to the comparison of gay marriage to the civil-rights movement.
I'm sure the gay community felt it was thrown a curve. It thought that the African-American community would stand with it in totality if it could convince us this was a civil-rights issue.
But many black clergy are offended that gay rights would be compared to civil rights. The circumstances are different. As an African-American, I can never expect to have the choice of, "Don't ask, don't tell."

97% of dark skinned americans that voted, voted for ZERO..
3% of them are smart..
huh? Please explain.
The difference between being black and being gay is .... one does not CHOOSE one’s race but homosexuality is a choice. Most black people have very definite opinions about marriage being between a man and woman, hence the “Prop 8” vote in California.
“The difference between being black and being gay is .... one does not CHOOSE ones race but homosexuality is a choice. “
Even if homosexuality is not a choice, it is a disorder, and being black is not a disorder. There is no comparison.
Such direct and clear messages are the reason why gays are trying to first destroy Christianity and the Church.
till waiting on that explanation STE- (Low I) Q
It's an analogy (if an imperfect one).
I've noticed that to "progressives" it's OK to be prejudiced against those "bible thumping" Christians.
They are considered "slow" and not too bright in certain left-wing circles, don't you know?
In other words "progressives" often think it's OK to single out Christians and will employ various pejoratives against them: in their attempt to denigrate same.
Perhaps you missed it but I thought the sarcasm was obvious.
Hope the above helps.
Have a nice day!
...too close to the edge STE=Q, ....too close
If you think that was the "edge" you're in BIG trouble!
Perhaps you have me confused with someone that owes you more than the explanation I gave you?
Au contraire... but that's a rather long story that I don't deign to share, at this point in time.
Have a nice day, sister.
