BY NATASHA BARSOTTI – No sooner had Southern Baptists elected their first African-American president, in an apparent move away from a legacy of racism, than they passed a resolution opposing gay marriage, co-authored by none other than their new leader.
According to an Associated Press (AP) report, Reverend Dwight McKissic said it was an “unfair comparison” for gays to equate same-sex marriage with civil rights because there’s no irrefutable scientific evidence that homosexuality is an innate characteristic like skin colour. “They’re equating their sin with my skin,” he said.
McKissic said it was “important to sound the alarm again, because the culture is changing,” the AP report states.
Seems McKissic and a few others went AWOL when another Baptist pastor was laying down his Declaration of Independence 101 schooling not too long ago.
