I stand with President Obama on this issue. Members of the G.L.B.T. should have the right to will property to one another, cover each other on their insurance plans and see each other in the hospital through the avenues of "civil unions". However, the majority of African-American citizens in the U.S.A. oppose gay marriage for various reasons, as evident by the number of gay marriage bans passed by individual states, including my home state of Ohio. Further, many African-American citizens like myself are offended when the gay community compares the Civil Rights Movement to the so-called "Gay Rights Movement." I want to make sure I'm clear: the Civil Rights Movement and the "Gay Rights Movement" are not even close to being on the same level. African-Americans cannot control what color they are. People in the G.L.B.T. community can, however, control who they sleep with. I'm not saying that people in the G.L.B.T. community can not sleep with who they want to sleep with; what I'm saying is that the G.L.B.T. community should not push homosexual activity as being socially acceptable on the African-American community. I, for one, am tired of the G.L.B.T. community attempting to exploit the blood, sweat & tears shed by leaders of the Civil Rights Movement for the purpose of promoting gay marriage. How about you?Let me say this very clearly for the people in the back rows to hear: just because the majority of a population supports something does not make it right. That's all I have to say on the subject, really, for now.
I'm curious to know what you think.
And, yes, there was another posting here. It's gone now. 'Nuff said.
