I thought rape, incest, and pedophilia were already decriminalized with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. At least, that's what the KKK was saying at the time.

As a group, I think blacks are the most homophobic, and hypocritical, demographic in the U.S.

Rape, incest and pedophilia .... all creations of the various religions.
Homosexuality however, is a natural phenomena.
So, for someone to relate them all together would suggest a variety of mental disorders. So why is there so much attention given to an obviously deranged individual?
Can't we just ignore this nonsense and move on?

Comparing loving committed relationships to harming an innocent victim remains a popular way of demonizing and dehumanizing anyone you wish to punish and control.

Ironically, those convicted of the crimes he uses to demonize gay people, are still allowed to get married, even while in prison, while the gay law enforcement officials who risk their lives protecting us from those criminals, don't enjoy the same rights of marriage enjoyed by violent convicts.

When you break down the figures, race is not the determining factor.

Conservative religious belief, and conservative political belief are the determining factors.

The NAACP and many other black civil rights leaders support full equality for gay people. Surely you know this by now.

Unfortunately, while totally irrational, this is a common device continues to be used to demonize and dehumanize, by many who are opposed to equal rights.

It fails to consider harming others against their will, has nothing to do with equal treatment under the law.

And they fail to remember even the criminals they try to compare us to, can still get married.

Total logic fail.
