If you're like me then you're probably still enjoying the stand-up comedy routine from D.C. resident Earnestine Copeland from earlier this week that was supposed to serve as her testimony in opposition to D.C.'s pending marriage equality bill . Well it seems that the hearings is a gift that keeps on giving.

Anti-gay bigot Bishop Harry Jackson and chief organizer in the movement to keep the D.C. LGBT community second class citizens receives the smackdown from gay council member David Catania.

Jackson's insane plea to have the majority vote on the rights of a minority while invoking a little "black history lesson" comes back to bite him in the ass in a major way.

Catania also uncovers Jackson who has a home in Maryland and an apartment in D.C. (gotta have some place to bring the trade) has never voted in D.C. elections in the past ten years.

This is worth 6:52 seconds of your day. Get into it.

It was good to hear this powerful history lesson about putting the right of blacks up for a vote. It was wrong in 1865 when the majority voted against black suffrage and it's wrong today for a majority to vote on my right to marry. (http://www.tahsays.blogspot.com)

Though the history was correct that he gave you have to weigh both sides of the argument. My biggest problem with this was that he never voted in DC but came to voice an opinion. What is a recent transplant? How long ago did you live here? This is way the gay marriage movement is being compared to the civil rights movement, When we the citizens can decided on the rights of other citizens it starts to get scary.

When we start to run our government/country based on religious views we are no better than these Islamic nations that want to kill people who have different views
