Good discussion here. I'll have comments when I get home.

@Ravensback Now you know I am not that shallow, as I have posted on this que...Bishop Jackson many times. Blame it on Rod, he threw that bait out there! lolo This one is really on the DC black gay community to stand up to these anti-gay pastors, though. But if the actual City Council voted was 12-1 for allowing same-sex marriages from other states, how much of this is smoke and mirrors? I would rather not take that chance, of course. What needs to be done needs to be done as far as canvassing and outreach and what not.

OMFG, Miss Bishop Jackson is giving you every bit of Liz Taylor throwing that ring up before the camera like that!

Chitown Kev here Pathetic and pitiful. And I guess the bishop ain't talking about the ones in the church that aint changed from being gay one bit. SMH

Chitown Kev here Yes, Danny, we need to keep the pressure up. Only Congressional passage and Presidential signature will suffice. And Obama or Holder (preferably Obama, at this point) need to apologize for that filthy brief and withdraw it. Oh, and Barney Frank, please. At least Polis addressed some specifics and voiced his outrage in his statement.

(Chitown Kev here, by the way just so there is no confusion, I signed in in order to post!) I meant that all the rights work up to marriage equality, not the Reaganomics of rights dripping down from marriage equality.

Man, these are some great comments. I do agree with Jim that marriage equality, in fact, did begin from the grassroots but has been taken over by the professional gays. Kevjack is right in shooting down what I call the "trickle down" theory of marriage equality; the idea that all our rights will flow down from there. In all of the states that have marriage equality, protections such as state ENDA, hate crimes, etc. are already codified in the state laws. Marriage equality trickles up, not down.

Scratch that Rod, now it's working. Fantastic discussion here!
