Why Gay Is Not the New Black

Liberals and the homosexual lobby have found two ways to explain away the fact that some people decided they didn't like being "gay" anymore. 1) Add more letters and labels. It used to be just the "gay" community. Then it was LG. Then LGB. Then LGBT. I don't remember what we are up to now... LGBTQ? 2) Use "No True Scotsman." Someone claims they used to be homosexual, but then changed? Well, just claim that they were never REALLY "gay" in the first place.

Repeating what has been a rallying cry of gay activism for years, the cover of the December 16, 2008 issue of The Advocate announced, “Gay is the New Black: The Last Great Civil Rights Struggle.” Last week, on May 19th, headlines across the nation announced, “NAACP endorses gay marriage as ‘civil right.’” So, is gay the new black?

There are prominent black leaders who say yes, including Congressman John Lewis, who was active in the early Civil Rights movement. There are other prominent black leaders who say no, like Timothy F. Johnson, founder and president of the Frederick Douglass Foundation.
