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?
