    Black church leaders: Gay marriage ‘not a civil rights issue’

    5/31/12 Videography by Sarah Hofmann


    The Daily Caller attended a meeting Wednesday morning held by the Congressional Black Caucus and the Conference of National Black Churches.

    At the event, TheDC asked attendees if they thought it was fair to compare the fight to legalize same sex marriage with the civil rights struggles of the 1960s.

    Does this have anything to do with why the Obama administration plans to talk to all the leaders of black churches? I know they want them to write campaign ads for Obama into their weekly sermons, but maybe they'll address this as well.

    What Would Che Think of Same-Sex Marriage?

    By Jack Cashill

    Indeed, in 1969, the New York Daily News headlined its coverage of the watershed Stonewall rebellion, "Homo Nest Raided, Queen Bees Are Stinging Mad." Even the usually insurrection-friendly Village Voice dismissed Stonewall as the "Great Faggot Rebellion."V

    These responses represented something of a progressive norm. As testament to the same, Cuban leaders were then attempting to purge their country of homosexuality, which they believed to be as much a by-product of capitalism as homelessness or hedge funds. Poster boy Che Guevara was particularly keen on "reeducating" gay and effeminate men and dispatched thousands, without charge or trial, to concentration camps.


    Cuba's proud persecution of gays notwithstanding, many of the same people who are today hectoring imaginary homophobes were then sneaking off to Cuba -- Poster girl Bernardine Dohrn comes to mind -- and singing the praises of this brutally gay-bashing revolution.

    As already correctly noted: as Americans they’re entitled to their opinion; it is legally and Constitutionally irrelevant, however.

    They weren't too keen on women's lib either.

    This is history repeating itself....many are too wrapped up in themselves and their struggle to see the struggle of others having any significance.

    Or its the fact that thier religion sees homosexuality as immoral, as opposed to racism, which is not condoned in the bible.

    While politically liberal a strong majority of blacks trend socially conservative, due to thier southern roots. While I dont think this will cause them, as a voting block, to trend to Romeny, it may reduce the overall numbers of those voting. For Democrats, this is not a good thing.

    Figures. Anything related to the rights of blacks is automatically a civil right, but when it comes to the rights of others, they don't give a shit.
