It seems Lil Bow Wow's admission of his own personal homophobia has ruffled more than a few feathers across the blogosphere. Celebrity blogger and friend B. Scott has just released what I believe is one of his greatest videos. B. obviously needed to get a few things off his chest and boy did he ever! Some language may not be suitable for work.

Bishop Harry Jackson identified himself to the crowd as part of the Missionary Baptist Ministers' Conference of Washington D.C. and Vicinity, organizer of Tuesday's rally. Jackson is also one the country's foremost African-American clergy opposing marriage equality, senior pastor of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Md., and founder of the College Park High Impact Leadership Coalition.
''Today we are being radical,'' Jackson said in his rally speech. ''Radical means we are returning to the roots, and the word of God.... This is not about hating anybody.... This is about loving Jesus.
''This is not about gay rights. There's a difference between civil rights and sacred rights. I want you to understand that marriage has been defined by God, and everybody in America does not have an equal civil right to get married. Two close relatives do not have a right to get married because it's not good for the culture; a man cannot marry a 3-year-old because it's not good for the culture. "You with me?''
''Yes!'' the crowd replied.
Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry was for gay marriage before he was against it.

'There are a lot of issues that we agree on, there are some that we don't agree on, but...we have to say no to same-sex marriage in D.C.,'' former D.C. mayor and current Councilmember Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) told an energized crowd of about 150 assembled on Freedom Plaza, in front of the John A. Wilson Building during a rally against marriage equality held Tuesday morning, April 28. Barry then offered the crowd an invitation to "pack the City Council chambers'' on Tuesday, May 5 for the Council's monthly legislative meeting. ''You can't just talk about it, brother,'' he said. ''You have to work for it. You've got to go across the street and walk the halls of the City Council, confront all 12 of [the Council members], eye to eye, morality against immorality.''
