    Was just watching the commentry on this case on CNN just now and reading the comments on mediatakeout and based on his lavish lifestyle as a pastor and trying to pray on young guys in his church by bribing them with expensive gifts and treats. He seem to be a fraud to me and there will be a money trail especially with all the techonology around. What makes me angry the most is that the congregation spend so much time idolizing him and would believe anything that comes out his mouth without questioning it. I also get angry when it is these same people that are aggressive in suppressing gay people of their rights.

    Sadly, I get this reference. Curse you, silly sparkly vampire book/movie franchise.... Eeeegh!


    More on topic:

    I think if anything, it will harden the traditional Black Christians even further against homosexuality in general.

    BUT... it might also cause some of these same Black Christians to question their pastors, particular these largely self-appointed "prosperity gospel bishops".

    I'm reading that most of the church members still support him, and prefer to believe that the charges against him are false. It's merely a gay plot to discredit him. Is that what our Christian fundamentalists here believe, too?

    Being white and atheist I have had very few dealings with black churches until recently. But, from what I have seen, they aren't much different from other churches.

    However, where most are fairly consistent on marriage equality, many are also keenly aware of the social justice aspect. There is a lot of support for ENDA, which I think if HRC had any sense at all would be their top legislative priority. There is a lot of support for housing and health care equity. From what I can see, job, housing, and health disparities are still everyday experiences for the black community and so they abhor it in all its forms. Yes, there is some "gays burn in hell" nonsense going about, but I would not assume that to be the majority opinion from the black pastors I have dealt with over the last year on working on anti-discrimination policies.

    The hypocrisy from the religious right wingers just never seems to end. This bodybuilder/baptist pastor is just another self loathing closet case. Go figure.

    aunty jack, Nobody is dragging Australia into America's domestic disputes like gay marriage. Its a large majority of people in Australia that are allowing themselves to be strongly influenced by American ideology and culture not the other way around. You sound like some of the Canadians who complain about the exact same thing.
