Gay Marriage = Terrorism?

African American ministers rallied in Tampa Bay, Florida, denouncing what they called the "moralistic terrorism of today's society." (Link via How Appealing).

The minister, Mr. Wiggins, went on to argue, "God is not against my being black, because this is how he made me."

I would think that Mr. Wiggins would be sensitive to the fact that religious arguments were brought to bear against African Americans in the Civil Rights movement (Sons of Ham, and all that). Without biblical support, his argument about the differences between the civil rights struggles for blacks versus the civil rights struggles for gays falls apart. Of course, had the people who fought for civil rights for African Americans accepted the curse of Ham, we would still be drinking from different water fountains.

God made gay people too, Mr. Wiggins.
