With that said I doubt it was that easy growing up gay in a conservative white community either, but i think it is probably even worse in the black community.
My hope is that it can improve in all communities.
I'm sure that most of those ministers are more concerned with lining their own pockets. Gotta make sure the congregation tithes 10% so you can buy yourself a new Cadillac.
That is for a different reason though.
Dont worry too much about black-on-black crime.... If CASA and other pro-illegal immigrant groups get their way... it will be diluted w/ black-on-brown (or vice versa) crime.
Bishop Harry Jackson interview with Christian Post
How can he say with a straight face that he is not trying to impose his views on others?CP: I want to start out by asking in light of Maryland's recent debate and upcoming legalization of same-sex marriage, tell me why you are willing to take such a pronounced and visible stand to defend marriage?
Jackson: First, we as people of faith are not trying to impose our views on others. We are simply using God's Word, given to us by the scriptures, to stand up for what is right. Instead, those who are advocating for what they call "marriage" that does not involve a man and a woman, are trying to impose their agenda on us.
Dieser Weg wird kein leichter sein; dieser Weg wird steinig und schwer.
Nicht mit vielen wirst du dir einig sein, doch dieses Leben bietet so viel mehr. --Xavier Naidoo
We'll find out in November whether Marylanders want a theocracy or not.
I'm kinda partial to a secular government myself.
You have to look at the drug war. Ron Paul said it best
Congressman Paul, an analysis by the Prison Policy finds that Blacks who are jailed at 4x the rates as whites in South Carolina, are most often convicted on drug offenses.Do you see racial disparities in arrests and convictions as a problem?” Williams asked, to which Rep. Paul replied that there was a disparity–
“Yes there is a disparity, it’s not my opinion – it’s very clear. Blacks and minorities arrested with drugs are arrested disproportionately. They are tried and in prison disproportionately. They suffer the consequences of the death penalty disproportionately. Rich white people don’t get the death penalty very often. And most of these are victim-less crimes, sometimes people can use drugs and be arrested three times and have never committed a violent act and they can go to prison for life and yet we see times as recently where murderers get out of prison with shorter periods of times – So I think it’s way disproportionate and I don’t think we can do a whole lot about it. I think that there is discrimination in this system – but you have to address the drug war.
You know the drug war is very violent on our borders, I’m all for having tight immigration policy but we cannot ignore the border without looking at the drug war. In the last 5 years, 47,500 people died in the drug war down there. This is a major thing going on and it unfairly hits the minority. This is one thing that I am quite sure that Martin Luther King will be in agreement with me on this – In fact Martin Luther King would be in agreement with me on the wars as well – He was a strong opponent to the Vietnam war – So I would highly say YES this judicial system is probably by far one of the worst places where prejudice and discrimination still exists in this country” – Presidential Candidate Ron Paul
