Take your meds, blacks (MLK included)have never supported that freaky behavior to this day. He preached in his sermons as a Black Baptist Preacher and from that point of view as most Black preachers do. Again keep replaying in your head the gays getting the boot out of MLK'S church on MLK day. Thats how we feel about gays and NO you gays are not welcome in Dr. Kings church with your perverted nature physically and mentally as you are showing now.

I agree with the civil rights agenda that Obama has proposed as reflected above. I too agree with him that marraige is between a man and a woman. GLBTQ's should have their human rights protected but allowing them to marry hasnothing to do with civil rights. Civil unions allow them the financial securities that they desire as partners.
Now when we get to heaven we won't even be talking about this because there won't be homosexuality in heaven. In fact there won't be sexuality in heaven at all so this argument is really only for us fleshly humans dwelling here on earth trying to make the best we can out of a fallen world.
Separate but equal is not equal. Civil Unions are not marriage and are not acceptable in order to placate us. Marriage is not a religious institution it is a civil one.

There won't be homosexuality in heaven? Wow! You are so knowledgable. Did the big J C tell you that personally? If there is no sexuality, then there will be no gender, then there will be no marriage, then there will be no families, then there will be no.... Well, damn. Seems pretty bleek to me. You go on now, and spend eternity praising a diety who created you as non-perfect, and then gets pissed at your mistakes. Praise eternally a god that sends rain and fire down on his creations. Your god is like a human owner shoving his dog's head under the tub water because the dog took a dump in the house.

My family has gay folks on both sides of the family, so I'm pretty sure it's genetic. In any case, my family loves gays and lesbians as they love all Americans. Fortunately, they aren't bigots like you. LOL!!

Let me show you delusion..........In my post which you made this reply too I provided historical evidence of what the Black civil rights movement was about and all you can come back with his hypotheticals, conjecture and flat out lies.
The delusional mental gay state is sad and desperate for something to validate the gay perverted existence. But sadly that reality can't be found. You say Dr. King supported you but your not even welcome in his church. Swallow that pill down.
Why would I ever step foot in a homophobic church. Be real. I still believe Coretta Scott King knew MLK better than you. LOL!!

The proof is in what Obama actually DID not what he wrote. Which is in my original post. Got reading comprehension..........didn't think so
Only a fool like you would believe Obama would pass all gay civil rights legislation his first month in office. Duh!! Be more patient. Change takes time. I'm sure you remember that from your own civil rights movement. LOL!!

I think that you are having yet another delusional dream of that one big A--(no pun intended) gay parabe. I don't think that Dr. King would have said that. People kill me with all of this nonsense,he was not a liberal,stop making him out to be this all purpose leader. He was a staunch baptist minister, baptist do not believe in Homosexuality the last time I checked! So where the hell did you get this nonsense from!

You are just talking out of that big ole hole in your a--!

My dad is a retired officer in the marine corps. I'm sure he makes you look like a wimp. I bet I make you look like a wimp too. I was fortunate enough to have intelligent parents that could care less about sexual orientation. Thank God I didn't have hillbilly redneck parents like you. LOL!!

Even your name is black thievery. You try and talk about blacks but your using a historic black woman's name you idiot. Ever heard of Queen of Sheeba. Again sad how you attempt to some how project blacks aren't worthy and at the same time claim MLK because of gay loser history. Too bad, you always have the sisters of perpetual gayness.
You're obsessed with race.

This does not mean that he would have marched for the gay cause. This is all just wishful thinking, if the black community is largely against supporting gay rights now, in they year of 2009 what in the hell makes you think that he,and his supporters would.

*African Americans get so pissed when you homos,attempt to link the struggle for "civil" rights with your filthy cause. They are not the same. While I would support your right to live in a safe society,where you are not under the constant danger of being harmed. I would never-ever in a thousand lifetimes support your right to live shack up or live with another man, or a woman with a woman,and make a mockery of marriage. Something that God almighty created and meant for man and woman. Man and woman alone, not man and chuck,nor Barb and Sue,nor Bob and his neighbors ten year old daughter,nor Suzy and her pet sheperd.
