In an earlier post I discussed how Ken Blackwell and a bunch of ‘reformed homosexuals’ were protesting H.R. 1592, the ?Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007?, because it extends the definition of a hate crime to include those motivated by the ?sexual orientation? ? or ?gender identity? of the victim.
Well now it looks like a bunch of conservative black ministers are joining the gay-hating chorus.
The ministers, along with Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and the Family Research Council (big suprise!), are urging “members of the Congressional Black Caucus to vote against the proposed act” because, they say, it will “muzzle the black church” by pinning a “hate-crime label on their sermons against homosexuality.”
The NAACP supports the bill.
