Professional “former homosexual” and white male Randy Thomas had this to say over at his blog today:
At today’s press conference one of my heroes, Rev. Bill Owen, spoke very passionately about what civil rights means to the African American community and how the fight over marriage is nothing comparable to that. Rev. Owen was friends with Dr. King and I think he would know.
So who knew Dr. King best? Oh, I don’t know… There has been all this talk from the religious right about the sacred God-ordained institution of marriage so maybe we autta think about that. I mean it’s only the most important institution in almost 5000 (laugh) years of human history.
However, in this case observing the most intimate bond two people can share is an inconvenience to Thomas’ worldview.
