Want To See What Discrimination Really Looks Like?

It's not about those evil Republicans refusing to pay for contraception for some nubile princess at Georgetown who didn't want to pay for her own condoms - and didn't want to give up her jollies.

You remember that controversy.  The dust-up that the media - and the Democratic Party - decided to call a "war on women."  Somehow.

No.  Want to know what discrimination looks like?  Ask the members of the Coalition of African-American Pastors:
Black Pastors: Banning Chick-fil-A From Cities ‘Same Thing’ As Banning Blacks From Restaurants
By Eric Scheiner, CNS News

The President of the Coalition of African-American Pastors says supporters of traditional marriage are facing the same discrimination that blacks faced during the civil rights movement.

“Some people are saying because of the position that Chick-fil-A has taken - they don’t want them in their cities,” Rev. William Owens said at the National Press Club on Tuesday.

“It’s a disgrace. It’s the same thing that happened when I was marching for civil rights, when they didn’t want a black to come into their restaurant, they didn’t want us staying in their hotels. Now they’re saying, because we take a Christian position, they don’t want us in their cities.”

Owens continued, “Well, we won’t take it. We will stand up and they will learn, they will learn that they can’t do that to any people, by destroying religion, by destroying the family, we will stand up.”

CAAP held the conference to announce it’s “Mandate for Marriage” campaign, a nationwide effort to urge black voters to refrain from supporting President Barack Obama unless he retracts his support for gay marriage.

The restaurant chain Chick-fil-A became a focal point in the gay marriage debate after company president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that the company was "guilty as charged" for backing "the biblical definition of a family.” [link]
An interesting turn of events. The black community - the most religious in America - is faced with a situation in the next election where they have to choose between their faith and their skin color. With the Democrats' war on Christians, there can be no in-between.

I, of course, have my doubts as to which they'll choose ...

Still, here's to those black pastors who are brave enough to speak out about real injustice. As opposed to feminists and their need for cost-free orgasms.
