    Default Black pastors bash NAACP for endorsing gay marriage

    http://news.yahoo.com/black-pastors-...201708256.html

    This is what I was talking about in a post a few weeks ago about how we fail to address racism and hate when it comes from minorities. It's not just a problem with the extreme right white folks.

    I find it slightly ironic that a group of people who's rights are quashed throughout the centuries are looking to quash the rights of another group of people.

    Sadly, the animal instinct to dominate and repress those 'weaker' than ourselves has not 'evolved' out of us, despite our supposed superior intelligence.

    What do these people not get?

    Gay people don't want to say: Will you civil union me?

    My Sarcas-o-Meter went haywire when I scanned your use of "slightly" in that sentence.

    Anyone who opposes gay marriage is a terrible person, right? Whatever. What a disordered load of perverse crap.

    Flame away.

    Whenever I debate this issue (I'm pro gay marriage, by the way), I try to keep the topic on the legal side. As in, there are arguments - and good ones - on either side about the legality of creating legislation to oppose same-sex marriage, or to allow it.

    I'm interested in talking about that, if you are.

    I will get into the religious arguments if you're itchin' to go there, but ultimately that never seems to be productive.

    As for the thread itself, I'm joining others in finding it double-ironic that a religious group is chastising a non-religious group for behaving, well, non religious. Furthering the irony is the civil rights issue.

    I save the word "terrible" for people like that NC pastor who wants them contained until they die out.

    For someone who simply opposes the idea of two Americans having the same rights as the others, I simply think they're selfish. They no not want to share with the "different" kid.

    This.

    The sight of black churchgoers celebrating the passage of Amendment One here in North Carolina a few weeks ago was one of the saddest parts of a truly depressing situation.

    This is not a morality issue Wruff, it is a legality issue.

    Why should a gay person not have the same legal rights as a straight person? It makes no sense, I don't even understand how this is still a debate in this country.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Don't support it, never will and don't really care what people think of me for saying it.

    Civil unions are fine, not marriage.
