    I hope the black community will wise up to the likes of the NAACP,Al Sharptons and Jessie Jacksons of this world. Along with the Democrats Party. These folks are nothing but pimps that really look out for self and live off the blood of those in need. The elite in both parties are sucking us dry but these folks live off of hate and division. If the white and black community would come together we could make strides against those within that are killing our nation! God Bless all these ministers you can bet if they stand their ground the afore mentioned will go after them.

    Few things are more ironic than a black bigot. Anyone who suffered from bigotry and then turns around and perpetrates it themselves learned nothing from their experience, and are sad, pathetic idiots.

    It's remarkable how much the black community has embraced the religion of their former oppressors. I mean, here is a book (the Bible) which embraces slavery. Helloooo?

    Read your Bible it speaks very clearly about slavery, beating your wife properly, and putting your wife out of the house two weeks out of the month. The Bible was written by sexist racist men. Anyone who believes every word written in this book is a fool!

    You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men" (1 Cor 7: 21-24).

    Do not become slaves of men? That hardly sounds like an unqualified endorsement of slavery.

    That Paul did not approve of slavery as an institution can be seen in his first letter to Timothy (1:10), where he includes "slave traders" (literally "men-stealers," andrapodistais) among the "lawless and disobedient," "godless and sinful," "unholy and profane.

    Guess I am one of those "fools". Perhaps you watch toooo much TV.

    I find the black churches stance on gay marriage a joke. I personally voted in NC to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. However, I wonder why the black church uses this topic to show descent from its community. We have an 80% single parent household. We have a 45% graduation rate. We have a 30 incarceration rate amongst our black men. We have unemployment rates as high as 40% in some areas of the country.

    When will the black church finally do what it is supposed to do? Stop pacifying us and making excuses for our behaviors. Stop blaming others for our circumstances. Stop using the Bible as a weapon to damn others and start using it as a tool to support, enrich, and comfort.

    It is the same Bible that speaks against crime, bastardizing ones children, unemployment, and theft, that also speaks against homosexuality. I am not defending any of the behaviors stated above, I am just curious as to why the church chooses to pick this topic against those people. My God and Bible tells me to love all people.

    I voted for Amendment 1 in NC! I am not suggesting that the black church should support gay marriage, but I am saying we have much larger issues according to the word of God. We could touch so many more lives if we would just stop pushing the real issues under the rug.

    The Bible also supports slavery. But I guess as long as you love your slaves and don't beat them to death it's OK. Also, homosexuality is not a behavior, just like heterosexuality is not a behavior.

    Let's not pick which scripture to make illegal, let's make them all. slavery, interracial marriage, judgement.. Boy, that would really offend some.

    The CAAP theists should keep their religion inside their closets and in their churches (where it belongs), and not impose their woo-woo on all tax-paying citizens. If they don't want to perform certain ceremonies in their own private churches, so be it. But, to try to deny equal protection and equal rights to certain segments of society in the public sphere is un-American.

    There is a difference between civil marriage and religious marriage. No one I know supports forcing pastors to perform marriages they don't believe in, but many people I know also support denying pastors who do wish to perform same-sex marriages from doing so. And any couple should have the right to walk into THEIR county courthouse and get married before a magistrate.

    Skin color or ethnicity involves no moral choices ... but how you conduct yourself sexually does.
    They are trying to hijack the moral capital of the black civil rights movement and use it to force society to affirm their behavior, regardless of other people's moral beliefs about it

    Way to stand your ground against a group seeking equality in civil rights...while still wanting restitution ($$) for your ancestors several generations back who suffered the same challenge! Who really wants to get married anyway though?

    Why do black people want to uphold a religion/ideology that fucked them over in the first place?!

    On another note, people don't choose to be gay. Nuff said. They are born that way. They deserve the same rights as everybody else. Just as being born black or asian or hispanic should afford you all of the same rights as everybody else!

    True, and I'm all up for standing up for what you believe in. But to be bigots towards a people group, and then complain about black rights or the inclusion of church within state...well, then it becomes just a little bit hypocritical.

    It is their right to voice their opinion. They have the choice not to support gay marriage just like people who do support it. I do not support it and that is my right as an american. People need to stop forcing their views on other people because they disagree. We will all have our day of judgement and that is up to God.
