Not bloody likely in our lifetimes… but it’s fun to pretend!
We often hear homo-bigot pastors from the black churches who get riled at the notion that civil rights for gays and lesbians is anything like civil rights for blacks. “Nothing alike!” they’ll preach, because you can’t hide blackness in a closet, or because blackness is inborn whereas gayness is a choice, or some other nonsense.
I wonder how the black homo-bigots will react when they find themselves allied with a traditional enemy:
(Austin, Texas) The city of Austin on Monday gave the Ku Klux Klan permission to hold a rally against same-sex marriage on a public square in front of city hall.
The decision was made as early voting began on a proposed amendment to the Texas constitution to ban gay marriage.
The KKK rally will be held November 5 on the south plaza of Austin City Hall.
In seeking permission for the protest, called a “pro-family” rally, the American White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan said: “Our speech will not be inflammatory, but we all know the reputation of the name of the KKK, so we expect anti-Klan demonstrators to be there who may become violent. We certainly don’t want any of our people hurt nor any city officials. We just want to come and encourage people to vote for Christian Family Values and against legalized homosexual marriage in the state of Texas.”
Voters will go to the polls November 8, three days after the Klan rally, to cast ballots on the gay marriage ban, that would also bar civil unions.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend, ain’t it, black homo-bigot preachers? There may be difference between the black civil rights movement of the ’60s and the gay civil rights movement of today, but both movements seem to attract the same opposition — ignorant hate-filled groups decrying tolerance, encouraging segregation, stifling equality under the law, and promoting discrimination against a reviled minority, all under the banner of protecting the family and society under mandate from God.
