The Rev. Charles Flowers is a bigoted arse.

Why do I say that? Well

More than 350 black and Latino ministers and members of their flocks rallied against proposed updates to the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance Tuesday at City Hall, rejecting comparisons between the nation’s historic struggle for racial equality and current efforts to safeguard rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

“While we love the people involved, we cannot allow their agenda to stain the fabric, the tapestry, of the civil rights movement,” said the Rev. Charles Flowers, an African-American pastor and early opponent of the measure.

Translation: “We don’t care if people discriminate against gay people the way we were discriminated against. In fact, we don’t care SO MUCH that we’ll show our bigotry off in a public forum. It’s not as if anyone will call us out on it.”

Seriously, when do we get to call these people out for this sort of thing without being called racist?

    This is pretty ignorant. You can’t just take something out of context and label it bigotry because the deeper message behind it is true. Let’s put it this way.
    Any black person who spoke out against racism before the civil rights movement got the crap kicked out of them, if not worse. Back then there were very, very few black people who truly spoke out against racism and got away with it. Let’s just say MLK got lucky.
    Pretty much all of today’s homosexuals openly express their issues with other people’s opinions opposing gay marriage when the typical opportunity to arises, and no one dares say anything about it, God forbid they be labelled ignorant, discriminatory, or a bigot. . .and why??

      So just because the gays aren’t having dogs and firehoses turned on them for speaking out, it’s okay to discriminate against them? And I am the ignorant one? Hokay then.

      And MLK didn’t get lucky. He was left alone because he had men with guns backing him up.
