Reply to "Woman sues church over gay marriage"

Reference:
Being gay is not the same as being Black. Being gay is not an issue that is comparable to or can be equated with - especially at the social/civil level - with the issue of race. The Loving case served its purpose for the particular racial discrimination cause that it sought to correct. But, trying to use it as justification for a non-race-related issue doesn't really work ... because you are trying to compare apples to a T-bone steak!! The truth is ... gay people already enjoy many of the "civil" rights to do the things they are demanding special consideration for. They say they cannot get married ... but that's simply not true. It's not a matter or whether or not they can go into a justice of the peace's office and get married .. just like anybody else. It's that they want special consideration of being able to marry someone of the same sex. And those are two different things. Now ... when Black people couldn't enroll in public school ... or go into certain public stores or restaurants or establishments, or were denied jobs - because they were BLACK .. that was a violation of the civil right of citizenship .. the denial of being considered an equal member of society. It's apples and a T-bone steak. And gay rights activists really need to find another argument - one specific and unique to their cause - to justify their claims. Because the "it's the same thing as what happened to Black people
 Again....I totally agree.  You're on a roll my sista.  And I also "get" what you mean in terms of when black people couldn't do certain things as EQUALS.  And yes it is like apples and a T-bone steak....great methaphor/analogy!  But!  I'm just sayin
