  •  He endorsed Chick-Fil-A (7+ / 0-)

    in August.
    And it's more of the "gay people are sinners", the gay reprogramming thing etc. to which I object.

    Do I think the man should be treated like a pariah forever? No. Do I think he should be denied a plum spot at a national day of celebration for a president that ran on inclusion and gay civil rights as a cornerstone of his presidency? Yes.

    •  So did a bunch of Democrats and blacks. (0+ / 0-)

      Perhaps he supported Chick-Fil-A's right to speak its beliefs.  I mean, there was a pic of a mob of black folks in the south holding up chick-Fil-a bags.  I'm telling you, this pastor won't be the only 'homophobe' at or participating in inauguration.  How about this preachers present day work on eradicating modern day slavery.  Does his work today not cut him some slack to be able to pray on the national mall?  If this guy get up their talking some anti gay shit, I'll be the first out my seat to clock his ass before SS takes me down.  Relax, a little forgiveness of idiots can go a long way.  Lol.  I do feel you to an extent though.  I remember not feeling Hillary or Bill after all that racist shit they said in 08.  Then Obama had the nerve to pick her for SoS!!!  I was hot.  Now I loves me some Hills and look forward to quitting my job in two years to work on her campaign.  Same way even I ,as a black woman, can see beauty in Mt. Rushmore through the backdrop of an egregious history.

        it is offensive to me as a gay man to have him there as a speaker. I would never try to state would should be offensive to you as an African American or a woman. I simply cannot ever have a complete perspective. You just have to take my word for it that it is offensive to a large percentage of the gay community - who is politically active at least.

      •  Again, why? After all, he is the president of (0+ / 0-)

        the entire country including the kill the gays portion so why the fuck should it matter if he gets up there and calls for the forced "treatment" or even execution of all gays?

        You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
