Black ministers, gay unions

November 06, 2011

I note that in your editorial drumming up black support for homosexual unions, you disparage the black ministers who leaned on lawmakers to oppose the marriage equality bill ("Marriage and race," Nov. 2).

The two women legislators who caused the vote to be postponed did not vote against the bill but instead behaved rather cowardly by refusing to show up at the judiciary committee meeting when the vote was held.

The only thing those black ministers did wrong was not speak out even more boldly, often and loudly to express their opposition to the homosexual lifestyle.
