No doubt Barack Obama wants the world to forget about his anti-gay gospel gaffe. Superstar Reverend Irene Monroe, however, keeps the scandal piping hot with a scathing criticism of the presidential candidate:
Although the Obama campaign says it “decided to go with someone local,” the real deal is that Obama hid his fear of addressing the black LGBTQ community by selecting a white minister to speak to a predominately black anti-gay audience. That’s because it is easier to maintain the myth many of these black evangelical voters hold – that queerness is a “white” thing – than to address the reality that his “big tent” message cannot presently accommodate anti-gay black ministers, gospels singers, and the black LGBTQ community.
Wait, there are black gay people? Who knew?!
