Oh come on. Feeling sorry for yourself today? Be proud of your gayness and fly your freak flag high. It's never been more popular to be gay than now. Why always picking on the "Christians"? You seem to give all the Muslims a pass. Just wait until Sharia law is enacted then you will really be persecuted. It will make the holocaust look like a picnic.

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.
