Yes. Well, at least one. Washington D.C. City Council member Marion Barry’s flip-flopping on supporting legislation to recognize out-of-state same-sex marriages was followed up by the former disgraced mayor with calls of a coming “civil war” led by the “black community” and “ministers” who think gay marriage “is a sin.” Could he be right?
Barry, once seen as a gay rights advocate, maintains his supports for civil unions but refuses to pass the “marriage” threshold. Now he’s a champion for keeping “separate but equal” alive and well. And since Congress has 30 days to move on any law our capital city passes, his only hope is to find a sympathetic ear. Looks like he found one.
WaPo: “Some things are worth fighting for, and this is one of them,” says Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee, which oversees D.C. “It’s not something I can let go softly into the night. . . . I recognize the Democrats are in the majority, but I represent the majority of Americans on this issue.”
Should you be worried? Well, both houses of Congress are controlled by Democrats …
Why is it alway something to do with Utah?
Wait, Marion Barry has friends outside his circle of dealers? I wonder which hooker’s ass he snorted off of this time.
I have a question. you keep saying that the people of DC won’t stand by and let this happen. Well if that is so, then why is the minister leading this crusade with you as well as other ministers…from churches outside DC?
If you really represent the people in DC in your ward you may want to actually listen to them, and not some pastors from Maryland just because they are funding whatever your latest “Medications” are.
@Cam: You got that right!
Seriously. DC, including many many of its black residents, is mega gay. Hella gay. Gay, gay, gay. And you know what? Most of the people who live here are fine and dandy with that fact. It’s the scary uber-religious who seem to ruin it all, and this group of distorted ministers is showing their fear in such a disgusting way. Throwing the black thing into the mix only aids in showing the blatant bigotry involved.
I used to like the fact that this city is sprinkled with churches on every block- big steeples, the sound of choirs rejoicing every Sunday- now I cringe when I walk by one. How horrible to treat people in such a way and call yourself “God-fearing”.
Why are they so damn SCARED?
Red Balls. Cocaine in a can baby!
