Some facts about religion and the erroneous mindset against the LGBT community: I will say this again, to all the so called fake ass Black preachers, ministers, pastors and religious leaders of the Black community, if you are using the bible to further your LGBT prejudices, stop lying to your “flock”. The Bible mentions homosexuality 4 times. Jesus never mentioned Homosexuality. God never mentions Homosexuality. But the Poor are mentioned over 300 times. Homosexuality is not a sin against God or Christ. Stop The Lying. Tell The Truth.
Our so called Black religious leaders who are all across the pulpits of Black churches all across America, who are standing in those pulpits, paid for by donations, tithing, offerings and building drives, from members of the LGBT community….you are lying ass fake prophets when you preach that the bible teaches that homosexuality and same sex marriage is a sin.
You are a lie.
The bible does NOT address gender specific sexual activity. Stop Lying to your “flock”.
MAN is the only species that discriminates against it’s own kind based on sexual orientation. God did not. Christ did not.
I was raised an old school Baptist Missionary Christian. My grandfather was a founder and pastor of his own Baptist Missionary church for 53 years. I have read the bible backwards & forwards several times in my life. NOT once have I read scriptures saying same sex marriage or sexual activity between same gender humans was/is a sin.
Let me break it down even further for you lame brain Black religious leaders. And YES, I am singling you out Black religious leaders because you should know better. Not so many years ago you fools were marching and protesting for equality. You were fighting to have the equal right to eat next to caucasians at diner counters. You were sitting in to protest the separation of the caucasian and Black races. You were marching for the right to marry a caucasian if your heart so guided you.
Now you attempt to use non existent bible versus to support your own prejudices? Each and every one of you fake ass prechers disgust me with your short memories.
The Ten Commandments say:

Not one place in the Ten Commandments does it mention same gender marriage or sexual activity.
Lets listen to a real down Black religious leader who remembers what civil and human rights really are all about.
The following comments were provided by a very intelligent woman known as Ms. Brenda Kay, lets read her thoughts:

Amen Mr. JB!
So according to these phony, jackleg, pontificating “Pimps in the Pulpit” – same-sex marriage is the “real” threat to the Black community.
But, not the sky rocketing numbers of single parent households invariably headed up by Black mothers with little to no support by the Black fathers of these children, the ever increasing numbers of young Black men dying due to gang and gun violence, the disproportionate numbers of young Black men and women going to prison for minor crimes and offenses, the economic disparity of working Black-Americans to other ethnic groups, the HIV, diabetes, hypertension and obesity health crisis that continues to have a death hold within the Black community, the lack of Black business ownership, the shockingly poor education systems that still exist within urban areas, and the numerous voter suppressions efforts being implemented by numerous GOP/tea party governors and state officials – just to name a few things.
Watching video clips of these Black preachers working themselves into a lather over same-sex marriage, while collectively turning a blind eye and a silent tongue to the myriad of “REAL” issues that are literally crippling the Black community – is proof positive that the Black church is not only irrelevant, but it has lost it’s way completely.
Let the church say Amen. Ms. Brenda Kay speaks my mind!!!
