Our favorite religious homophobe Bishop Harry Jackson took to the airwaves on the Christian Broadcasting Network to voice his outrage over the controversial Newsweek cover story- The Religious Case for Gay Marriage by Lisa Miller.

If you haven't read Lisa's article then I highly recommend that you set aside about ten minutes out of your day to do so. She makes a sound argument for gay marriage using scripture that show support for gay unions much in the same way our opposition has used scripture to oppress us. While I'm not sure if any minds will be changed regarding individual interpretation of the bible it sure does reinforce the notion that their is a scripture that can be used to support any argument. Get into it here.

Jackson's usual propaganda is on full display in this interview paired with his new call for black ministers to be at the forefront of the anti-gay/anti same-sex marriage movement. This is not surprising coming from a man who was named one of the "20 Most Frightful Anti-Gay Activists" by Queerty.

After you've recovered from Jackson's interview go ahead and watch the other side of the argument from Newsweek writer Lisa Miller here.

You can send her a note of thanks for her brilliant article here.

...Sodom and Gommorah. Isn't that when Lot offered his daughters to be gang raped by a mob outside his door? Isn't that when Lot had drunken sex with his daughters? Is that the best example the bishop can offer?

There are much better defenses of the traditional viewpoint if you'd only Google them.

I am not so sure this battle will be won as long as people continue to read the Bible for themselves. Newsweek didn't sway one conservative Christian although they might have picked up some nominal ones.
Those types don't attend church anyways.

I do think that your political worldview predisposes you to the belief that theology changes from the top down. It does not. That is solely a Catholic phenomenon.
The lay people will leave en masse if you try that elsewhere.
