CNN's Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer reports on the "un-christ like" behavior of the DC Catholic church and their threat to cut off crucial social service programs that help thousands of residents with adoption, homelessness, and health care if the DC City Council approves pending legislation granting marriage equality to same-sex couples in the district as expected on December 1.
And spotlight hungry Bishop Harry Jackson, one of the chief organizers among black clergy opposing the marriage equality bill continues his anti-gay crusade with the help of a glowing article in today's Washington Post.
The money quote: "Some of the smartest people I knew in college were gay," he says. "Some black students I knew who were gay were off-the-charts smart. I don't know of anybody black who says, 'I hate gay people.' We're more accepting generally. But you overlap that -- homosexuality and gay marriage -- with broken families, and we don't know how to put it back together."
So now according to Bishop Jackson gay folks & same-sex marriage are the reasons black babies are born out of wedlock, divorce is rampant, and the black family is in a "free-fall". I had no earthly idea we had that much power, but thanks for letting me know Harry.
If you missed Bishop Jackson's testimony against marriage equality during the DC City Council hearings and the smack down from David Catania, do yourself a favor and watch it here.
