In what legal observers called an unusual development, the full nine-judge D.C. Court of Appeals heard oral arguments Monday for a lawsuit seeking to force the city to put its same-sex marriage law before voters in a ballot initiative.
Harry Jackson and Anthony Evans should be ashamed of themselves. Any black person who condones denying equal rights to any minority group should hang their head in shame. There is no other minority in this country that knows the evils and dangers of inequality then the black community. Lets take Jackson and Evans for quick walk down memory lane for a second. In the not so distant past black people could not drink out of the same water fountains, use the same restrooms, sit in the front of the bus, could not vote or could not marry some one of a different race and that is just naming a few of the injustices. Now of course these two will tell you that they are Christians and the bible says that marriage is between a man and a women and they will give you their whole speech and what not, but the truth is, they are doing exactly what was done to them not so long ago and justifying it in the name of religion as they always do.
In California when prop8 passed, which took away the right for gay people to marry, the largest number of people who voted in favor of over turning the law was the black community. Disgusting. Really. Here is my question, in the 6months that the law was in affect, 18,000. couples were married. Did any straight couples marriage suffer and end in divorce? Did any child learn about it and turn gay? Did god swing his mighty wand and blow up the coast? Did chaos ensue? No. Actually nothing happened. Well that’s not actually true, it helped the economy, but otherwise the truth is 18,000 couples who love each other, got married and it did not affect anyone…
here are two quotes from Coretta Scott King:
“Gays and lesbians stood up for civil rights in Montgomery (and) Selma (Alabama), in Albany, Georgia, and St. Augustine, Florida, and many other campaigns of the civil rights movement,” King said.
She said she saluted the contributions “of these courageous men and women” who fought “for my freedom at a time when they could find few voices for their own.”
So here are these two men of god as they call themselves, however to me a true man of god unites people and believes in equality for everyone so i call them men of god loosely, but here they are two black men trying to deny equal rights to a minority group when they themselves belong to a group that was denied the same equality not so long ago…wow, how quickly pain fades…..
