    ...that, by and large, neither white pastors preaching equality nor mostly-white churches practicing equality are likely to make the evening news or morning newspaper.

    For instance, some years ago, our local Catholic bishop (not a rank-and-file priest, but the bishop of the diocese) decided that he would christen the adopted children of a gay couple.  Some would call that an extraordinary decision on his part, but it didn't even register as a blip in the local media...until Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church announced their intention to come to town and stage a protest.

    If it isn't controversial, you probably don't hear about it.  That isn't the fault of those churches or their pastors.  If they're actually following what Christ taught, they aren't bragging or running PR campaigns about their actions; they're just doing them.

    The word "parent" is supposed to be a VERB, people...
