D.C. comedian and activist Sampson McCormick is continuing to use his platform to confront homophobia and dispel myths regarding gay and lesbian people in the African-American community. You may remember the touching mother's day video McCormick recorded with his mother that was featured on loldarian.com earlier this month. In his latest video, McCormick interviews Reggie and Dorine Jackson, a married pastoral team who shares a very different opinion regarding homosexuality.


"It's beginning to spread and people are beginning to accept it," says Reggie Jackson when asked for his opinion about homosexuality in the black church.


The Jacksons (not to be confused with superstar family) don't stray from the conflicting conservative idea of "love the sinner but hate the sin", but they even take it a step further and expound on their belief that the cause of homosexuality is due to "gay demons." Now this is when I had to turn the video off and return later to finish. Kudos to McCormick for being able to continue the interview and to all involved for handling such a divisive topic from a mature and calm place.


Money quote from McCormick: "Some black people are so spiritual until they're just no earthly good."


Get into the interview below. Thoughts?

I understand what the gay man is trying to do but he is wasting his time, IMO. Neither he, nor anyone else, is going to change the way this couple thinks about "the gays".

If he wants to be an activist, as in LGBT activist, he would be better off telling black gay men to GET AWAY from damaged beyond repair (DBR) black people. DBR black people are homophobic straight black people AND self-hating black gay men.

My advice to black gay men is to get as far away from people like the "pastors" in the video as you can. They WILL destroy you, if you let them. In fact, that is their goal. Why discuss anything with people who HATE you.

A good LGBT activist will concentrate on developing the self-esteem of black gay men so that they can walk away from garbage, such as the couple in the video, and not look back.

WHATEVER REASON MAKES YOU COMFORTABLE AND BELIEVING THAT YOU ARE GAY IS NOT REASON ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT. THE FACT THAT YOU KEEP STROKING YOURSELF FOR YOUR CHOICE IS INSUFFICIENT. THERE ARE OTHERS LIKE YOURSELF WHO APPLAUD YOUR ACTS TO MAKE THEM COMFORTABLE....I SAY THIS, BE THE MAN THAT YOU ARE, DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, BUT DON EXPECT THAT IT IS OK WITH ALL OF US. WHY DEBATE, WHY ANNOUNCE? JUST KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DO. ANOTHER BLACK MOTHER.

That is EXACTLY what he is doing; himself. He can announce if he wants to. He is exercising his First Amendment right as are the pastors. If you aren't okay with it that is your right but we don't have to sit down and be quiet because you don't like it. No one asked you and NO ONE NEEDS YOUR PERMISSION TO BE WHO THEY ARE!!

Chile, the things those so called pastors allowed to fall out of their mouths...well if I didn't know better, on so many levels, and if I were not a much more spiritually and psychologically mature man. Well...I'd be taking my earrings off about now and be getting prepared to tangle with the both of them...
