Last night California pastor Xavier Thompson kicked out a bunch of gays and lesbians who attended a meeting at his church against SB 48, the FAIR Education Act which would include the disabled, people-of-color, and LGBTs into public school social studies lessons. But he says, “this is not about us hating anyone or being homophobic or guilty of bigotry.”
Right, just like it wouldn’t be bigotry if gays wanted all religious people removed from history books either.
When watching the above newscasts, Joe. My. God.‘s commenters made two very savvy observations:
1) SB 48 opponents keep talking about how the bill “sexualizes” history. Apparently the mere mention of homos conjures images in their minds of hot man-on-man action, the same way that mentioning heterosexuals makes us all think of Debbie Does Dallas.
2) The newscast of the ouster included shirtless men at a gay pride parade when they mentioned criticisms of SB 48 pushing “the homosexual agenda.” That’s a bit like showing clips of topless women at Mardi Gras to portray the straight population, showing a Mariachi Band at a Taco Bell to represent Hispanics, or showing a ganster rap video to represent African-Americans.
Prop 8 didn’t get back on the 2012 ballot, but that doesn’t mean California’s not gonna have a big gay showdown on Election Day.

Another homophobic, black pastor. Cue the “PC queens” to say, “being back has nothing to do with it.”

Sounds like the churces are dabbling in politics again! TAKE AWAY THEIR TAX EXEMPT STATUS!!!
@Ted and @Christopher: Let’s counter homophobia with racism. You’re just as bigoted as this pastor. You don’t get a pass on racism just because you’re a couple of gays.
being black HAS nothing to do with it. being a conservative religious nutjob has everything to do with it.
ever notice how Conservative Gays hate blacks and Conservative Blacks hate Gays?
the irony – they’re both Conservatives because they hate each other. fab.
Oh Lawd! Some time by black brothrin’ getza all up in my last raw nerve , actin all high and mighty . I knowd whatz duh realz problem iz ! He be afraid that attentions goings to be taken off hiz people. I know dats right!
Mr. Enemabag Jones
Kicking people out of church. How very christian of them.
ok ok ok.. we will leave your meetings if you will leave our public housing.
Age, Race, and Denomination each play a part in LGBT acceptance in faith-based communities. PublicReligion.org just published a study which brings this clearly to bear. Elderly, Black, Protestants are surpassed only by Elderly, White, Evangelicals in their acceptance of same-sex marriage. It does not seem unlikely their view would differ vastly on the subject of LGBT history in public education.
@christopher di spirito: Race is not the problem here, christianity is!
As a homosexual, apparently all I do is rape anything and everything with an XY chromosomal combination.
I am glad we have that cleared up.
Just because Ted and Christopher made an issue of the pastor’s race doesn’t mean they hate anyone or are being racist or guilty of bigotry.
Disgusted Gay American
another blackman who you can tell by his age…he NEVER EVER had to FIGHT for the RIGHTS he TAKES SO EASILY FOR GRANTED….he lives off the backs of those who fought for them…..guess he’s never heard of Corretta Scott King, Julian Bond, or Cong. Joe Lewis? People like this asshole make me sick
The gay community will never get anywhere until it deals with asshole racist like the ones above.Notice the gay man kicked out was black too.It pisses me off when white gay pretend to care about what goes on in the black community.
@Vince: Its you Vince who is the ignorant racist for thinking and saying that just because some people are addressing one black fuck who is spewing hatred against gay people and using gODD to do it that the same treatment they use is not permissable. Don’t go around professing that their anger is toward all black people. You are Busted!!! You are the one with all the racist thoughts and pc response. You stupid whitebred fuck.
christopher di spirito
@Vince: Vince, you’re an idiot. But thanks for showing up when I summoned you.
@Vince: My response was only toward you Vince not all white people like you would have everyone believe. You get it now honey? Hypocrite.
Today is September 1, 2011. Does anyone know whether or not the Bummer has evolved yet? Get it girls. Even Obama is slick enough to know that if you ask if he has evolved on gay issues like marriage equality (which is the terminology he used out of his own mouth)there will always be people like Vince who will call you a racist for using that word “evolve.” And the truth is that the only real racism is right out the mouth of ignorant Vince and his learned pc bullshit that one cannot bring up the status of anyone even if they are methodically destroying you through religion and corrupt propaganda. Now sing out loud and sing it out proud. “Oh holy thou. you are so lofty an angel. Oh bullshit Vince you are a creton fool.” LADADA LA DA DA DA DA DA DA. oh oh oh OH OH OH OH OH OH OH. lAaaaahh DAaaa DAaaaa LA DAAAAHH. LADADAda daaaahhh. LADEEDEE la DA. you know the rest.
Does Pastor Thompson also expel from his congregation children born out of wedlock, or any descendant of an illegitimate child within the last 200 years, as the Bible requires?
A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.” Deuteronomy 23:2
Lil Kiwi you tellem gurl friendz , I be getten so tide of all duh racist commmentaries and all day.
Lil Kiwi you tellem gurl friendz , I be getten so tide of all duh racist commmentaries and all dat !
Idi Amin Dada
*yawn* Another homophobic dinge preacher. Who wants to bet he’s involved in a gay scandal within the next year?
@doomsday1038: oh you know everybody is white huh Sallie Mae. Cause Bobbie Jean told you so?
@Little Kiwi: conservative gays? Go back to Canada. Da GAYZ!!! Those GAYZ man. All dose GAYZ. SCARY GAYZ.
C O O K I E M O N S T E R !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Remember the days when African Americans were segregated? No blacks in “our” schools was the mantra. And now we have this black evangelical pastor saying no gays in “his” schools. Tell me what the fucking difference is you frightened pc brats? You don’t even know what a movement is.
I swear as much as I think of white gays as my brothers, some of you racist fucks are just disgusting!!!! Every gay vs. straight, topic becomes a race topic. Even when black ppl aren’t involved. I am just as disgusted by that video as the rest of you, but I won’t devolve into such racial ignorance. If I called every white homophobe a racist slur I would be just as bad as you backwards fucks who think its ok to throw around slurs like “monkey” and attach black to your insults. You guys pretend to be so shocked that black people can be homophobes, when you don’t even realize how such a large number of white gays are racist!!! Take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of someone else’s.
When might the Pastor speak out against people who wear clothing made of two different fibres? Against adultery? Against the pork eaters and baconistas? Against the divorced?
Per his holy bible, slavery and rape are acceptable. Will he return to those verses?
Preacher man is picking and choosing which parts of his holy tome he wishes to read. What about the rest?
@Katt: stop taking the focus off this wretched vile black evangelical pastor.
Nigger this, nigger that…blah, blah, blah. I tell you one thing not one nigger ever killed himself for being called a nigger. Maybe you faggots could learn something from a nigger.
P.S. You white people should be happy…you enslaved a lot of niggers forced white Jesus and your religion on them to embrace your religion. Congrats white people! Rejoice atleast they are not savages anymore!
@Greenluv1322: they? them? mmh. interesting.

Hey guys, don’t forget to throw in those pictures someone published a couple of
years ago of a shirtless Barak Obama, taken while he was on vacation at a beach
and going into or out of the water!
The African-American murder rate in the U.S. has quadrupled since the 1960’s, and he thinks GAYS are open to his criticism?
@ewe: Your comments make you come across as a very hateful and ignorant man and as if no one in this world really matters to you except if they are white and gay. However, I have realized that you were really hurt by someone or something and you and your buddies grow really really big internet balls to say the things that you say about black people on here, because you are hiding behind the safety of your computer. I’m gay, black, and latino and if someone were to call you a faggot it would be just as hurtful and offensive to me as you calling the Reverend a Nigger; and you both said some very ignorant and stupid things. I don’t know what you look like or what has happened to you in your past that has made you say and/or feel the way you do about black people, but I would suggest that you look in your heart and try to fix that which is broken. I feel sorry for you and all the other people on here who say such horrible and stupid things-because you are only magnifying the pain and the brokeness in yourself. And, I’m prepared for all your backlash I would expect it because of the type of person you present yourself to be on here by the comments that you and others like you make, but I would like to tell you one more thing;calling black people “NIGGERS” is not going to persuade any black person and I mean any black person who is anti gay to see things your way and becoming more open and receptive to gay people. And it places black gays in a very akward position. That is a word that stings no matter what your sexual orientation is if you are a black person and it is used in the manner in which you use it.
On a similar note, I love how people have no problem with photoshopping hundreds of pics of President George W. Bush next to pictures of chimpanzees, but the one time someone did the same thing to Obama, suddenly it was racist. Liberals need to stop whining that we need to give special deference to blacks. We don’t. If their culture hates us, we call them out on it.
@Riker: Oh…Bush was ALWAYS being compared to a chimpanzee, that’s true.

The first comment is so embarrassing.
@Rico1907: i am hateful. i never said anything about being white here fool. that is your ignorance. You do not know me at all so know that it is simply your small ego inflating itself saying things like i was hurt. You have no information or facts to back up your bullshit. People have called me a faggot during my lifetime you stupid nigger. fuck you. I don’t have double standards like you and until your sorry ass addressed me i was only speaking about one other black evangelical fuck not all black people you twisted lying manipulative cunt. My heart is none of your damn business because frankly i don’t give a shit about people i don’t know and have internet balls enough to tell you exactly the same thing you feel. You make no sense hiding behind anonymity while accusing others of doing the same thing queen. You are a sham. I am not interested in your sorrow or pity. Go shit on someone else. You are being dysfunctional with that talk. The only thing you got right is that i am giving you the same backlash for being the stupid shit you are for defending some dumb black fuck who says i am less than him. Fuck you again if you can’t get that. I don’t care. What makes you think i am trying to get this filthy vile pastor to understand me? I am doing exactly what he does and you have made yourself my enemy by defending him. Stay on topic idiot. Black gays are the for the most part invisible thanks to your behavior. That is what is awkward. Lastly, keep the lectures to yourself. I am not interested.
@Rico1907: you want to know something remarkable Rico. You sit around condeming people who use certain words while actively desecrating peoples souls by speaking about past events in strangers lives that you purposely degrade in order to make your point about tolerance. You are a fucking asshole girlfriend.
@Rico1907: In other words you are delusional. My turn to feel sorry for you. Oh now don’t that make me feel so much superior. Get the damn mirror Rico.
This has more to do with loud, charisma-based religion being used to drown out discussions in tiny little communities. Raucous Bible thumpers trying to grab the attention of disaffected middle-aged people is pretty much standard procedure in America, no matter what ethnicity(es) your neighborhood happens to be.
Many people in the black community are homophobic but it has nothing to do having darker skin. It’s the culture and if a white, latino,or asian person were raised in that kind of culture they would be just as homophobic. This has to do with “traditional values”, conservative cultures and the influence of religion and not how light or dark a person’s skin is. There are a lot racists out there who like to over simplify homophobia in the black community and blame it on skin color and that’s a serious problem that we have in this country.

@ewe: You are fucking nuts.Like Rico 1907 said you have big balls sitting at a computer calling any black person even this on the n word.I bet you would not do it to a black persons face.All I and some of the other black gay people are saying is that when you attached his race it feel like you are attacking me too.
@Ryan: What stats do you have to back up your allegations?? How do you know blacks are more homophobic than other races?
@ewe: You’re a fucking idiot. All of you racist bastards on this site are idiots.
@Rico1907: Thank you. You’re golden… don’t even waste your time on these ignorant trolls.
@ewe: All I can say is that by reading your response to me makes me feel even more sorry for you. You are a very broken person and I hope that someday you find a more productive way to deal with your pain.
Speaking of racism (as defenders of homophobes-who-happen-to-be-black-yet-there-is-no-connection-whatsoever-and-if-you-even-suggest-anything-different-you’re-a-nazi are always doing): I’m starting to become prejudiced against the human race just by coming to this site.
@ewe: I think the speech in this video applies to this Elmer Gantry wannabe:
@Rico1907: Doctor heal thyself. You are such an endoctrinated kook that you can’t even hold the other end of a conversation.
@Gay Veteran: You are a boring predictable statistic. Typical response. and fuck you too.
@doomsday1038: Your kettle is still black hypocrite. Over your head i’m sure.
LOL gay people are a damn trip… and they wonder why they can’t make no progress..Shocking….

@Ted: HMMM. A hairy body and a small dick don’t sound like any black men I know..

@ewe: I couldn’t agree more… Faggot.
ewe, you are like a 3-legged jackass…someone ought to put you out of your misery. I love your anger though; it’s funny as hell seeing you so riled up while acting ballsy over the Internet. My guess us that in real life, you are a cowardly worm, who probably wouldn’t dare mouth off to anyone of any race or shade — no matter how put off you were by their comments — or how bluntly they disrespect you to your face — and that’s why you have to take out your silly, transparent, phony aggression online. In other words, you’re a real pussy; every bit as much the “Sissy” they called you in middle school.
Sad, but oh well.
@SBC19: I agree it is very sad. I think Queerty is all he has in his life and its the place that he releases his frustrations and he gets to feel like a powerful person. I don’t find anything funny about it, however, I do think that it is funny that if someone just wanted to pick a fight with him for shits and giggles-he would probably provide hours of amusement for them. Because, he has to respond to anything that is said about him, particularly if it is negative. Whereas most healthy people might go back and forth with two or three responses (replies)to someone else’s post-he would probably go all night because he has to have the last word instead of being like any other adult and just letting it go.
