So do you recognize the sociological disparity of black Christian and black Muslim communities? That's a nice first step, honey.
Edward Wilmot Blyden, a black polymath, was astonished when he visited Africa - he was AA - and realized the same social pattern of greater stability from afro-Muslim groups. Then he explained to us:
Imitation is not discipleship. The Mohammadan Negro is a much better Mohammadan then the Christian Negro is a Christian, because the Muslim Negro, as a learner, is a disciple, not an imitator. A disciple, when freed from leading strings, may become a producer; an imitator never rises above a mere copyist. With the disciple progress is from within; the imitator grows by accretion from without. The learning acquired by a disciple gives him capacity that gained by an imitator terminates in itself. The one becomes a capable man; the other is a mere sciolist. This explains the difference between the Mohammedan and the Christian Negro.
- Dr. Edward W. Blyden 1877

This also explains the difference between educated and mis-educated.

No. what I am saying is very, very simple: Islam gave Rights to Women. No other religion has ever done so. Thus, women are still fighting for their rights in America. But rather than give Women their Rights, the American culture is giving "gay" people the rights that belongs to women exclusively.

I agree that black muslims r more passionate about their faith than most black christians, and black muslims generally follow good family values..not many abortions,no single motherhood,stable marriages,and good birth rate among them
Wrong again. Islam is not about passion. It is about logical objective analysis of religion and spirituality under the Guidance of GOD Almighty who taught mankind that which we did not know. Imagine when you were a new born baby. You knew next to nothing and had to learn everything. That is the way the world was before the Revelation from GOD (Islam). In Islamic discourse, everything before Islam is called the Age of Ignorance or the Dark Ages. The Islamic Era is the Age of Light or Enlightenment. If you have any education at all, you have heard of these things in the history of the world. But you did not understand what they meant.

This is called Jihad:

Voices against "gay" marriage: Abdurrahman Nelson As to strategy and tactics, it is the liberal mass media that is ultimately behind this "gay" non-sense. So when this type of news comes out, the media shows it true colors by suppressing the news. It this particular example, it is not even possible to share this news here on Facebook or on twitter without making heroic efforts. Knowing this is crucial to our efforts to fight back. We are winning. But the media is creating the false impression that Obama and gang are winning. Therefore, in order to break the momentum of the opposition, we have to consciously do exactly what CAPPhttp://www.usatoday.com/st ory/news/nation/2013/03/21/gay -marriage-these-activists-say- no/20063 did in this instance. We have to copy and paste the news from one media to others in order to spread the word as widely as possible. The media will not help us. We have to consciously do the cutting and pasting on our own. I salute CAAP.

Here is the article:

Gay marriage? These voices say 'No' and explain why

Richard Wolf, USA TODAY8:46p.m. EDT March 21, 2013

Disparaged as bigots, these diverse voices say they're simply defending American society.

(Photo: Jim Mone, AP)

Story Highlights
Gay marriage opponents often portrayed as bigots, compared to hate groups
They say they're defending traditional marriage -- and American society
Opponents have gay friends and family: "We care deeply about their well-being"

WASHINGTON — They are moms and dads, authors and activists, a former police officer and a former single mom. They're black and white and Hispanic. One's a Roman Catholic archbishop, another an evangelical minister. Many have large families — including gay members.

They are among the leading opponents of gay marriage, or as they prefer to be called, defenders of traditional marriage. And they're trying to stop an increasingly popular movement as it approaches two dates with history next week at the Supreme Court.

MORE:'Regular' couples at core of historic gay marriage case

At times, it can seem a lonely battle. Outspent and lately out-hustled by highly organized gay rights organizations, opponents have struggled to get their story out. They're portrayed as bigots, likened to the racists and sexists of yesteryear. Some have been compared with hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan.

POLL: Young people, flip-floppers fuel surge for gay marriage

For men of the cloth such as Roman Catholic Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, nothing could be further from the truth.

"Those who believe what every human society since the beginning of the human race has believed about marriage, and is clearly the case from nature itself, will be regarded, and treated, as the next class of bigots," he says. "That's untrue, and it's not kind, and it doesn't seem to lead to a 'live and let live' pluralism."

From his new post in San Francisco, a bastion of gay and lesbian activism, Cordileone chairs the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' committee on the defense of marriage. He's one of the nation's leading opponents of gay marriage and is buttressed by a diverse crowd:

At the tip of the spear is the National Organization for Marriage, led by Brian Brown, a father of seven who travels the nation speaking at rallies opposing gay marriage. He succeeded Maggie Gallagher, a renowned conservative writer and speaker who warns about "losing American civilization."

The Family Research Council, headed by Tony Perkins, has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for "defaming gays and lesbians." Perkins, a father of five and radio personality, authored the nation's first "covenant marriage" bill as a Louisiana state legislator in an effort to combat no-fault divorces.

Leading a group of conservative black pastors is the Rev. William Owens of Memphis, whose eight children range from age 50 to 4 months. For him, opposing same-sex marriage is part of the battle to rebuild African-American families after decades of absentee fathers. "We already have enough problems," he says.
New York state Sen. Rubén Díaz, one of the nation's most prominent Hispanic opponents of gay marriage, is used to tilting at windmills. An evangelical minister who has compared abortion with the Holocaust, he was the lone Senate Democrat to oppose the gay marriage law signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2011.
What ties this diverse group together is a belief that legalizing more same-sex marriages will harm the family, particularly children, while encouraging homosexuality and infringing on educational and religious liberty.
Their battle will culminate Tuesday with a "March for Marriage" in the nation's capital, the same day the Supreme Court kicks off two days of oral arguments that could change the face of marriage in America. California's Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage will be addressed first in a case that could affect other states as well, followed by the federal Defense of Marriage Act's denial of government benefits to same-sex spouses.
As polls show larger and larger majorities of Americans favoring gay marriage, the opponents recognize they might be losing the battle of public opinion.
"Are we bucking the tide when it comes to cultural elites?" Brown says, before answering his own question. "Of course. We know that."

THE FAITH LEADER
No group opposing gay marriage carries as much influence as the Catholic Bishops, and Cordileone is their point man. He's a Baby Boomer from Southern California who takes the assignment seriously.
To Cordileone, 56, the effort combines a respect for ancient civilizations as well as an understanding of modern families. He's aware many of his flock disagree with the church's teachings on the issue, particularly in San Francisco, but he sees no conflict.
"My job as an archbishop is to teach the truths of our faith and the truths of the natural moral law, and whatever challenges that entails, I embrace with enthusiasm," he says.

The modern-day version of that history lesson, Cordileone says, could be seen from his cathedral residence overlooking Lake Merritt when he served as bishop of Oakland.
"It's very beautiful," he recalls. "But across the lake, as the streets go from 1st Avenue to the city limits at 100th Avenue, those 100 blocks consist entirely of inner-city neighborhoods plagued by fatherlessness and all the suffering it produces: youth violence, poverty, drugs, crime, gangs, school dropout and incredibly high murder rates.
"Walk those blocks and you can see with your own eyes: a society that is careless about getting fathers and mothers together to raise their children in one loving family is causing enormous heartache."
Ask this San Diego native if he has gay friends and the answer is, "Of course!" His views on gay marriage don't cause heartache in those relationships, he says, because his friends know him.

One of the nation's leading female opponents is Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America, founded in 1979 by Beverly LaHaye. Fighting gay marriage is the hardest issue for the group because it's so "complicated and deeply personal," she says, but adds, "We believe that we must stand for truth no matter who it offends."
Q&A: Cordileone states case against gay marriage
"It's a lot harder to be hateful or prejudiced against a person, or group of people, that one knows personally," he says. "When there is personal knowledge and human interaction, the barriers of prejudice and preconceived ideas come down."
Regardless of what rulings the Supreme Court hands down, most likely in late June, Cordileone warns that the debate is not over.
"Just as Roe v. Wade did not end the conversation about abortion, so a ruling that tries to import same-sex marriage into our Constitution is not going to end the marriage debate, but intensify it," he says. "We will have a bitterly polarized country divided on the marriage issue for years if not generations to come."
BLACK AND HISPANIC CLERGY

In some respects, Owens and Díaz defy the common perception that African Americans and Hispanics are overwhelmingly liberal. It's a perception these men dispute.

The 74-year-old Owens, president of the Coalition of African American Pastors, a co-sponsor of next week's march, contends blacks always have been "conservative Christians."

"I go from a Biblical standpoint and a social standpoint, knowing the damage that has already been done to the black family," he says. The threat of same-sex marriage, he adds, represents "another nail in the coffin for black families."

Once divorced himself, Owens acknowledges that legalizing gay marriage won't directly affect him. Still, he says, "We just don't know where it's going."

Díaz, an ordained minister in the Church of God who chairs the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization, is bringing 25 to 30 buses with gay marriage opponents to Washington for next week's rally. Four years ago, he assembled a crowd of 20,000 to protest New York's burgeoning gay marriage movement.

"The Hispanic community is more conservative than what people think," he says. "Call it whatever you want — it's a conservative religious movement."

Díaz says he has received death threats because of his stance against same-sex marriage, but he proudly refers to his efforts as "a calling." Despite those efforts, the conservative Democrat says he gets along just fine with his gay brother, nephew and granddaughter.

"We have a very loving family," he says. "I love them. They love me. We help each other. They know that this is the Bible — this is what I preach."

THE LOBBYIST

The group responsible for coordinating these and other opponents is the 6-year-old National Organization for Marriage, led originally by Gallagher and now by Brown.

Compared with the gay rights movement, the group is dwarfed. It spent just $150,000 lobbying in the past two years, according to the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics, compared with $3 million by the Human Rights Campaign and $650,000 by the group Freedom to Marry.

Even so, Brown notes, opponents helped to pass laws and voter initiatives against gay marriage in 38 states. Only nine states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex marriage — including three states where voters approved it last fall.

"The people are definitely on our side," Brown says. "The fight is not over. We have not lost the Supreme Court."

Since the Family Research Council shooting, Brown's organization has hired an armed guard in its Washington office, and hecklers are a common problem. Brown, however, says he's not intimidated.

Brian Brown, executive director of the National Organization for Marriage, says of the debate over gay marriage: "The people are definitely on our side."(Photo: Charlie Neibergall, AP)

He says he's been influenced by preachers of equality such as Martin Luther King Jr. and believes in "the profound worth of every human being." But he's had trouble maintaining past friendships with gays who don't agree with his position on the issue.

"It's definitely put a strain on the relationships," he says. "Those friendships are not the same as they were before."

Gallagher came to the issue from an unusual starting point — as a single mother of a child born out of wedlock.

"I didn't really see why you had to be married," she says of her college years and early adulthood. What she found was that "it's extremely difficult to be an unwed mother, which is not news now."

Like Brown, she remains optimistic about banning gay marriage in the states and the courts. But even in defeat, she says, the opposition will grow stronger, much like the abortion opposition after the Supreme Court's 1973 ruling that legalized abortion.

"I don't believe in inevitability," Gallagher says. "We make the future happen, and we're in the process of making a decision."
