Does THIS mean Sarah Palin is automatically President?

Not really helping my growing feeling that religion is the poison of otherwise good men.

You'd think, so soon after the story about a church refusing to marry a black couple, they'd tone down the anti-gay rhetoric.

Think they agree with the whole slavery concept as defined in the bible too or just cherry picking their beliefs?

"The time has come for a broad-based assault against the powers that be that want to change our culture to one of men marrying men and women marrying women," said Owens, in an interview Tuesday after the launch event at the National Press Club. "I am ashamed that the first black president chose this road, a disgraceful road."

Oh, for fark's sake.

I never thought I would see the day when the Coloreds would be advocating the denial of civil rights to others. But here we are.

Everyone needs someone else to look down upon. It helps prevent them from looking up and recognizing the people holding them down.

The story of America, first you come here to escape oppression then you oppress, then those you oppressed become unoppressed and they get to oppress the next group with you. One day in the future I fully expect a group of gay, black, protestants come out against robosexuality.

FTFA:

Owens has long been an opponent of gay marriage and consults with the National Organization for Marriage as a liaison to the black churches.

Earlier this year, memos obtained by The Human Rights Campaign in a Maine civil actions suit revealed that NOM aims at making gay marriage a wedge issued "between gays and blacks," according to the released confidential plans.

"The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks - two key Democratic constituencies," one NOM memo states.

It's the whole "people right above minimum wage are the most against raising it, because then they would be minimum wage. As long as there is someone below me, I can feel better about myself"

Humans are a weird species... we are all just insane hairless apes

They're obviously just racist.

excuse I forgot to state also:

The Rev. Williams Owens, who is president and founder of the Coalition of African-Americans Pastors and the leader of the campaign, has highlighted opposition to same-sex marriage among African-Americans.

Is the stated leader of this campaign, a shill, and is being absolutely used by the Republicans.

I saw this guy on CNN (got tired of pingpong on MSNBC) and I couldn't help but yell at the TV "Dude, you marched for the civil rights act. Civil rights applies to everyone! That 'separate but equal' thing ring a bell?"

Yeah, I need to lower my caffiene intake, but damnation, a man claiming to represent the teachings of Christ saying that a certain type of people don't deserve the same rights as everyone else always pisses me off. He needs to realize that there's more ways than one to be a bigot.

Fundies of any color or creed need to EABOD and DIAF.

You 'tards are losing. The younger generations realize that gay people are, y'know, people, and not demonic rapemonsters. And soon, you homophobic farks will be swept into the dustbin of history, right alongside every other group that's stood in the way of civil rights.

After the 2008 election, Republicans decided they desperately needed to do something about minority voter turnout for 2012. Hence, voter ID laws and this.

That's what burns me the most about this whole thing.

NOM secretly plots to drive a wedge between gays and blacks.

That secret NOM plot gets made public to great shock, offense, and derision.

NOM contacts its black pastor liaison

THEY FARKING GO AHEAD WITH THE PLAN ANYWAYS.

Hahaha, embarrassing!

Make those dumb Negroes sit at the back of the bus until they figure it out.

Maybe we can get these guys together with some white gay folks in an area where there are two water fountains - a pristine one for white people and a cruddy one filled with bacteria and syphilis for the black people. Maybe, just maybe, the role reversal will help them get it.

/Ashamed for certain people of my race and my religion today. Like many other days, sadly.

Dear Reverand Owens,

If you are so concerned about "saving the family," your might want to rethink the emphasis of your campaign. The gun violence taking place in our cities every day is NOT being perpetrated by gay men and women.
 
2012-08-01 01:14:19 PM
There is a little fact I would like to communicate with all social conservatives.

CIVIL RIGHTS ARE NOT A ZERO SUM GAME!

When I was a kid I read a novel by Robert Heinlein called Farnham's Freehold. It was not a very good book, but it was about a white-bread family and their negro friend accidentally traveling to the far future to find a slavery-based society where the black folk are on the top. They don't consider eating the white slaves an act of cannibalism. The negro friend that travels forward with them ultimately buys into the situation.

I find that scenario only less slightly plausible than what we seem to be seeing now.

If Christians are really only upset by gay marriage because of what the bible says then why is there no push to make divorce illegal?

You know who else cherry picks the bible to justify their hate? No not hitler. The KKK
 
2012-08-01 01:36:02 PM
I don't care about your race, religion, sex, or otherwise: if you're against equality, you're wrong. No categories, no special designations, just wrong. Period. Shame on them all.
