Gawd, these people are tiresome. The Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP), headed by Rev. William Owens, sent out an e-blast to its membership, trying yet again to build some momentum against marriage equality by driving a wedge between blacks and gays.

Sorry religious right, but the gay community isn’t buying what you are selling

By: Wednesday November 14, 2012 7:53 am

As far as I am concerned, it’s always a good thing when religious right figures trot their hypocrisies out in the public square.
