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.”

Gay does not equal paedophile.

for the president to bow to the money

There is a hell of a lot more money in being anti-gay.

you will note that all of them will say that I was molested as a child

And we all know that convicted criminals are scrupulously honest.

there are more people that want marriage to be right than there are homosexuals

Thankfully, right and wrong is not dependent on the popular whim. Oh, and the numbers are actually on our side now.

And Republican politicians oppose Obama on every issue "because of money" they get paid a salary for. Otherwise they'd be run out of office by their constituents and lose their income. What kind of idiot thinks conservative politicians do anything out of the piety? I'd have to figure out how many types of idiots there are to ever know the answer but from my observations they tend to be religious. Not that there aren't atheist idiots, but most idiots seek answers in religion's mentally deficient terms because science is incomprehensible to them.

Oh My Dog!

What part of consenting adults don't you understand?

Seriously? Are you that stupid?

Oh cool, a black bigot from the Civil Rights Movement.

Dear Rev. Owens, Civil Rights /= Black Rights.

Civil Rights are civil rights, i.e. rights for all. Gays are part of that all. The Civil Rights Movement wasn't just about Christian blacks. Get over it.

And why should anybody, much less Obama, listen to what you have to say? You are not Desmond Tutu or Albert Einstein, you seem neither wise nor respectable.

Owens added that the “president is in the White House because of the Civil Rights movement, and I was a leader in that.

So was Malcolm X. Your point? What makes you so special that others must change their views on gay marriage for you?

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.

Well good for you! But not everybody who partook or supports the Civil Right Movement has to think the way you do.

So the president has forgotten the price that was paid … where they gave their blood to have equal rights in the United States.”

Oh go cry me a river. What makes the senseless violence perpetrated against blacks more important than the murder and bullying of homosexuals? It's all discrimination, and you're supporting it with your ill-informed hatefull slander.

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

How much are legislators being paid to pass gay marriage laws? If you were to follow the money you get... not even enough to cover the paperwork.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." A wise man once said that. You'd be wise to remember it, Mr. Civil Rights Leader.

Not sure what gay marriage has to do with child molestation exactly.
Is there a correlation between straight men who get married and straight men who molest little girls?
How can you speak about equal rights, and in the same breath deny some people equal rights? I also don't understand the "bow to the money" idea. What money?
The last sentence; Picture someone 50 years ago saying: "There are more people that want negroes and whites to be separate than there are otherwise, in this country.." Strange that he can't see, or chooses not to see, the obvious parallels.

If you're black and you're Christian then you have a really shitty memory.

"If you're black and you're Christian then you have a really shitty memory."
Please, tell that to my family, as I've been trying to tell them for YEARS.

Is what a self hating closet homosexual / paedophile would say.
