After reading the article "Searching souls for gay marriage" (Feb. 19) with the picture of the huddled preachers, all of whom were black, is anyone else questioning why the black community is so against the gay community achieving marriage equality in the state? Here is one minority group that as few as 40 years ago was legally denied the right to marry an individual of their choosing. Now that they have obtained their civil right to freely marry, they are the most loud and vocal group rising up in opposition to another minority group having the same civil right.
Disguising their vitriol in the cloak of religious freedom and piously posing for the camera while praying in public (something which the New Testament scriptures vehemently reject), have black churches in our state taken it upon themselves to suppress another minority?
