Coalition Aims To Transform Fort Lauderdale

Naugle Gets Blackup

Jim Naugle just got a few new friends. A coalition of primarily black ministers have lent the Fort Lauderdale mayor their support to his homophobic cause. Peter Bailey of Miami Herald reports:

The predominantly black coalition of about 10 says its ultimate vision is to” transform Fort Lauderdale and Broward County into the Bible Belt of South Florida.”

In hopes of reclaiming the ”city’s Biblical heritage,” the group’s leaders say they plan to undertake measures “to ensure immoral behavior is not tolerated in the city or throughout the county.”

”We as a body of Christ support the mayor because he is addressing a moral crisis,” said Mathis Guice, director of the men’s ministry at Koinonia Worship Center. “People have to understand we’re in a spiritual war with Satan.”

That would be us.
