Quote# 88828

The leader of a group of black pastors opposed to gay marriage lashed out at President Barack Obama during a Tuesday appearance at the National Press Club. In his remarks, Rev. William Owens accused Obama of being “unprofessional” for ignoring him and insinuated that Obama had condoned child molestation by endorsing gay marriage.

“For the homosexual community and for the president to bow to the money as Judas did for Jesus Christ is a disgrace and we’re ashamed,” said Owens, the president and founder of the Coalition for African American Pastors.

“If you watch the men who have been caught having sex with little boys,” said Owens, “you will note that all of them will say that I was molested as a child. A man molested me in my home, wherever they will say they were molested. And for the president to condone this type thing knowing the full facts is just irresponsible.”

Owens added that the “president is in the White House because of the Civil Rights movement, and I was a leader in that. And I didn’t march one inch, one foot, one yard for a man to marry a man and a woman to marry a woman. So the president has forgotten the price that was paid … where they gave their blood to have equal rights in the United States.”

Owens said that Obama endorsed gay marriage “because of money” and bellowed: “there are more people that want marriage to be right than there are homosexuals, I assure you, in this country, and I think he’s going to learn that lesson.”

Whatever. Another ignorant loon more or less makes shit difference to the President or anybody else.

"Owens said that Obama endorsed gay marriage “because of money”"

You might remember that Kennedy was said to have endorsed civil rights for niggers for money.

“For the homosexual community and for the president to bow to the money as Judas did for Jesus Christ is a disgrace and we’re ashamed,”

Wait, someone's paying gay people to get married?

“If you watch the men who have been caught having sex with little boys,” said Owens, “you will note that all of them will say that I was molested as a child. A man molested me in my home, wherever they will say they were molested.

OK, but what does all this have to do with gay marriage?

More random mentions of child molestation when it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand. It's enough to make one suspect that these people are closet paedophiles projecting their desires onto everyone else.

Oh, holy shit. For the last time, fuckwits, gay does not equal pedophile anymore than straight equals pedophile.

Somehow these people always manage to forget all the underage girls sexually abused by men.

And this is the face of Obama's opposition. Hateful, bigoted, and insanely ignorant. Granted, Obama's not perfect by any means but He's had the most undeserved hatred since Hoover.

"And I didn’t march one inch, one foot, one yard for a man to marry a man and a woman to marry a woman." Oh yes you did. Equal rights are equal for all or they are not rights nor are they equal.

Does Obama really endorse gay marriage?
If he does, he does it because of equal rights, also known as Civil rights, that "they" gave their blood for.
Yes, there are more people who want marriage to be equal, than there are homosexuals, you are absolutetly right.
So what? Haven't you ever heard about empathy and respect?

There is no money in gay marriage, surely. Well, appart from the companies that sell flowers, cakes and clothes, and rent out venues, linnen, glasses and cutlery.

"insinuated that Obama had condoned child molestation by endorsing gay marriage."

While christians only condone child molestation by making their children go to bible studies.

Two can play this game.

Hey Rev. Nobody gives a fuck what you think.

@Swede: I haven't been keeping up, but yes, I think Obama does indeed endorse gay marriage of some sort. He started off against it, I believe, but has fairly recently stated that he's in favor of it for equal rights purposes and so forth though I don't know if he's stated how he feels about it on a personal level.

It's always sad when minorities who have more or less won their battles for equality (though I know in some areas there's still a long way to go) turn around and want to deny the same rights to other minorities.

Then again fundy Christianity is involved, so all bets are off.

And this.... makes me sad to be black sometimes. I get more crap from other black people for being LGBT, than I do from non-black LGBT people for being black. (OK, I get no crap from non-black gays, but that's my point. Even members of my FAMILY give me crap)

"It's always sad when minorities who have more or less won their battles for equality (though I know in some areas there's still a long way to go) turn around and want to deny the same rights to other minorities."

Especially since if you just substitute black men for gays and white women for the children they're supposedly raping it would pretty much be a piece of segregationist hate speech about how black people are all criminals.

I have some questions for Rev. Owens:

1. Where is the money in promoting gay marriage equality?
2. How does gay marriage relate to child molestation? Pedophiles are usually straight men.
3. Homosexuals may be a minority, but straights who support gay rights are becoming a majority in the U.S. What will you do as the numbers of your fellow bigots dwindle?
4. How can you look at yourself in the mirror, as you fight to deny other minorities equal rights, without throwing up?

“president is in the White House because of the Civil Rights movement, and I was a leader in that. And I didn’t march one inch, one foot, one yard for a man to marry a man and a woman to marry a woman."

Then you missed the entire fucking point of the CR movement. You say you were a leader in that? I find that fucking laughable.

Equality is not limited to race, asshat.

You say that Obama is doing it for the money? Fine. Show us. Show us how Obama is getting money for endorsing gay marriage.

Then show us how you make YOUR money.

Show us the money, Billy.

homosexuality =/= child molestation.

"Owens said that Obama endorsed gay marriage “because of money” and bellowed: “there are more people that want marriage to be right than there are homosexuals, I assure you, in this country, and I think he’s going to learn that lesson.”

...meanwhile, on Planet Reality; the Dutch sector (an area in which Protestant Christianity is still the dominant religion. Which has amongst the lowest rates of teenage pregnancy in Europe):



'there are more people that want marriage to be right than there are homosexuals' eh, Willie? The above proves that not only is your argument invalid, it never had the fucking right to exist in the first place.

I love the smell of arguments blasted out of the space-time continuum in the morning. Smells like... Superiority. [/hyper-smug & ultra-superior]

Fighting for rights, freedoms, and liberty mean nothing if you fight only for yours and not everyones. When you fight to exclude others, it makes you as bad as your oppressors.

“If you watch the men who have been caught having sex with little boys,” said Owens, “you will note that all of them will say that I was molested as a child.

Actually, I think most of them say "It's OK, I'm a priest, the Church will cover it up"

Most pedophiles are heterosexuals, or have no adult sexuality at all.
What about all the little girls who were molested by men? Should we prohibit the marriage between men and women?

Are you really sure that ALL pedophiles have been molested as kids?

Do these knuckle draggers ever listen to themselves talk?
Sometimes I lament that there is no hell for these types of people to go to.

“there are more people that want marriage to be right than there are homosexuals, I assure you, in this country, and I think he’s going to learn that lesson.”

That's why Romney is leading in the polls right?

...Oh wait, he's not.
