      “”“I find it inconceivable that one of your players, Mr. Brendon Ayanbadejo, would publicly endorse same-sex marriage, specifically as a Raven Football player. Many of my constituents and your football supporters are appalled and aghast that a member of the Ravens football team would step into this controversial divide and try to sway public opinion one way or the other.”

      Yes, how dare he try to sway public opinion on a subject …… that this other guy is trying to sway public opinion on.

      It’s a sad time for bigots when they desperately have to try to prevent others from experiencing free speech because their position is invalid.

      Just wondering if Mr. Burns would have been upset because Lyndon Johnson stepped into the “Controversial” issue of the civil rights legislation?

      @Cam: Free speech only applies to bigots, don’t you dare call them on their idiocy. That violates the constitution*

      * A version of the constitution that isn’t a real document and only exists in the minds of right wing religious and political extremists.

      What is sad here is how he and ALL of the other black reverends sat back and watched as the city and state cut the education budgets (along with the budgets of several other social services)to build the stadium for an organization (the Ravens)whose market value was in excess of half a billion dollars.

      NOT ONE WORD OF OBJECTION CAME FROM THEIR MOUTHS WHEN IT WAS ALSO POINTED OUT THAT IF PEOPLE ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE TOOK LESS THAN LIVING WAGE PAYING JOBS AT THE STADIUM THEY WOULD LOSE THEIR BENEFITS.

      I have NEVER understood how could a race of people who were told by Mr. Whiteman that their religion (which was practiced for thousands of years before he showed up) was wrong and his was right could sit back and preach………hey, whats the use. What is obviously etched in stone speaks for itself, and also not in the benefit of the majority.

      @Bob LaBlah:

      I see NOM is still sending people around to try to attack minorities on gay blogs.

      I guess they missed the news that the NAAC, Corretta Scott King, Mrs. Loving, and the President have all come out in favor of gay marriage.

      Please take a moment and POINT OUT what I said in my comment that supports your conclusion. I have not one clue as to who the hell NOM is and really don’t give a flying fuck.

      And by the way, are you sure Coretta Scott King was still alive when gay marriage was being legalized or are you referring to the days when it was on the drawing board and out of respect for the gay community, (a community that DID support the Civil Rights Act) she gave her support despite what that ignoramus of a niece of her and Martin Luther, Rev. Bernice, goes around saying that contradicts nearly EVERYTHING her uncle stood for?

      And while we are on the subject of MLK what about the near deafening silence of his son Dexter…………I’ll leave well enough alone. For now at least.

      Think before you rant unless you are a clandestine supporter of ignorance in the black community and jump at ANYTHING said that goes against what the black charlatans of the community (the reverends) say in public to the flocks they (some, but not all for the most part) are still fleecing.

      Be sure to pray for me in church Sunday and you sit there in silence when your good reverend does what you are falsely accusing me of.

      Love you regardless of your opinion of me. Take care.

      Easy, you attacked “ALL” black reverands. Funny that plenty have not stood by and done nothing and plenty are in the NAACP which has come out in support of gay rights. AS to what Coretta Scott King said, here is a quite from her before her death.

      “The widow of Martin Luther King Jr. called gay marriage a civil rights issue, denouncing a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban it.
      Constitutional amendments should be used to expand freedom, not restrict it, Coretta Scott King said Tuesday.
      “Gay and lesbian people have families, and their families should have legal protection,”

      @Bob LaBlah: Same-sex marriage has been legal in the U.S. since 2004; Coretta Scott King died in 2006.

      I think Chris Kluwe’s letter in response to this authoritarian A-hole hits the nail on the head.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chris-kluwe/an-open-letter-to-emmett-burns_b_1866216.html

      Perhaps Mr. Burns, a faux-Christian only for political expediency, and obviously not practicing so much as The Golden Rule, might better spend his energies on the near-50% divorce rate among his chosen flock, and less on interfering with the lives of those who only want to stay committed to each other in a loving relationship. After fixing that, he might consider the insane number of unwed mothers (and fathers), particularly in certain groups, and the lack of any stable family structure. In brief: his priorities are screwed!

      You know it’s kinda weird I actually meet him a few years ago and he seemed like a real nice man and then last year I read about him in a LGBT mag at school talking about how LGBT rights basically don’t matter , and now this …it’s really goes to show you that wolves really do wear sheeps clothing I guess.

      Very well said.

      Brilliantly written.

      He needs to think about these things.
