The Washington DC City Council voted to approval the legalization of "Gay Marriage".
Today, it can be said that the District of Columbia's City Council went rogue and voted against the will of their voters. What the hell right? Congress is doing the same thing right now on a national level. I have a very strong feeling that today's votes by the DC City Council wasn't with the blessing of the majority of the residents of the city. Blacks whether they want to admit it or not are conservative on several important issues. Once of those issues is that they believe that marriage is defined as being between one man and one woman. The black churches in Washington DC may parade the Democrat politician around every election cycle, but the black pastors don't promote homosexuality or the alteration of marriage from the their pews. Today by an 11-2 vote, the City Council of Washington DC approved to legalization of Gay Marriage. In all of the news stories I've read today about the City Council vote and the bill's passing. I haven't read one story yet from black citizens who make up the majority of the population of Washington D.C. Of course the media will stick their microphones and cameras into the faces of the people who support gay marriage in DC "mainly white liberals", but they won't stick those same microphones and cameras into the faces of the black residents of DC. Here's the reason why that is. The media has presented the face of what they deem "homophobes" as being that is "conservative white males". If the media was to film blacks showing opposition to the passing of a gay marriage bill in DC, it would destroy the media's presentation on what typical "homophobes" looks like and are. Some of the black clergy are already speaking out and are vowing to fight the City Council's vote as far as they can and for as long as it takes. Rev. Harry Jackson is the pastor of a huge mega church on the outskirts of D.C who lead the fight to stop the passing of the gay marriage bill. Reverend Harry Jackson said something that re enforced what I've known all along.
"In D.C., some very vulnerable black councilmen went along with the city council, and some of these guys will not be sitting in those chairs in 2010 elections".
I would love to see polls conducted by Gallup, Rasmussen, Zogby and other pollsters to show how the residents of D.C truly feel about the actions taken by the City Council. Some members in congress have already vowed to try and stop the City Council bill from becoming law. I see a potential unification among black and white religious conservatives in trying to stop this bill from becoming law. The passing of this bill should serve as a wake up call to blacks who unknowingly support Democrat liberal politicians and don't know where they stand on the issues. Things like this happen, and the voters are left asking themselves what in the hell just happened?
