You'd be upset too if people were calling for you to be put in concentraiton camps. Anyone who isn't outraged by Pastor Worley's remarks is unamerican and morally ocmpromised. Reasonable people already call homosexuality what it is - a trait, that is morally neutral. People who haven't come to that understanding yet and try to prevent legal equality are deserving of social censure.

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.
