the·oc·ra·cy - : government of a state by immediate divine guidance or by officials who are regarded as divinely guided



"Stubborn resistance within the House Black Caucus, a 20-member bloc of African-American lawmakers who have faced a withering lobbying blitz against the plan from black ministers, has helped keep Harris’ legislation in check, with several House members still undecided." My question is this. The ministers are saying that god does not want gay marriage...are they getting this from the same bible, that was used by many to state slavery was ok in early America?

However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them. (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it. "But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given." (Luke 12:47-48 NLT)

Oh well.

You reap what you sow. White folks infected us black folks with this religious nonsense, and they can't understand why we've ended up even MORE brainwashed than White Christians are. SMH...

Bigotry and intolerance are taught, and guess where these pastors learned it from?

I'm just happy that I didn't get permanently infected.

It is no wonder that you don't recognize the difference between a choice, the behavior (an ACT of doing something) of an immoral marriage... and forcing that immorality upon society, and actually BEING BORN (with ZERO say in the matter) black because one or both of your parents are black.

There is no gay gene. If there was then it might be possible to have it passed from your parents, but that isn't the case like it is with being born black, or any other race.


There is much evidence that being lesbian or homosexual is more related to your societal upbringing, and that it is a CHOICE, while at the same time there is ZERO evidence that any person is, was or will be born lesbian or homosexual.


Society has always and will always place pressure on people's behavior, insisting they behave legally and morally because this is something each and everyone of us can control about ourselves. None of us can control what race we are born into.

Bingo....this post has me cracking up and what you said is the truth. Many non-whites took concepts of white supremacy and believe in it more than the people who taught it to them!

Use some darn logic. Geez.

Who would choose to be gay given the sh*t that gay people face.

It's so damn obvious that people are born gay that I'm amazed that we're still having this silly ass argument in 2013. What's next? An argument about the world being flat or round?

These pastors are simply brainwashed by Christian fairytales. There's no other reason why they're taking this silly ass stance. It's not like they have anything to lose by Gays getting married or having additional rights.

Well...maybe they do. Enlightened people might stop attending church, leading to a shortage of money for their mansions, Bentleys, and Jamaican vacations.

The scene in the movie "Malcolm X" was really telling: the description of white as "pure", "good" and black as "dirty", "evil",in the dictionary. the depiction of Christ as white, blond haired, blue eyed. Some of the black preachers have taken the bible too literally and are picking and choosing which of the fables they wish to adhere to.

All lies, there is no proof that we chose to be gay, you are making it up to forward your agenda. If you are not gay, how in heck would you know? Why would any person choose to be attracted to someone of the same sex? Did you choose to be straight? Were you interested in both sexes before you made the choice, if not, then shut up and stop spreading lies.

Absolutely. You hit it on the head.

Of all the cruelties that whites heaped upon blacks whether it be slavery, the taking of the names, language and culture,forced rape of black woman, breaking up of families, Jim Crow...all of those combined don't add up IMHO to the damage that teaching (or rather indoctrinating) us their religion has done. What a disaster...and the fact that we're still rolling with it is a testament to how thorough the brainwashing has been. I damn near go to pieces just thinking about it.

And now, they actually have the nerve to wonder why we have the mindset that we do...as if they can't figure out where we got it from.

You can go into 3/4th's of Black churches today and you'll still find that blonde haired, blue eyed Jesus. You know..the guy that's supposed to be your savior, but somehow didn't lift a finger to save your ancestors. SMH..

Black preachers are the worst, I swear. How they can keep up this charade for so many decades just goes over my head.

My people..damn.

This was done to the native American aborigines too, they were prevented from practicing their beliefs and the damn missionaries went around spreading their message and bible. In California the natives were rounded up and put in missions as workers, if they ran away, they were caught and had a foot removed to prevent them from repeating it. I think it is sick that the church used missionaries to spread their hate in nearly every country, they did it in Africa, South America, Asia and they wonder why so many find them to be evil and hateful. Why must they try to convert everyone to their religion?
