National Black Church Initiative Ups The Anti-Gay Hyperbole, Hires Security To Protect President From “Gay Harm”

The National Black Church Initiative which “claims” it includes  34,000 African-American churches and represents  15.7 million black Americans (According to the 2012 U.S. census there are 38,929,319 African-Americans in the United States *cough* LIARS *cough* ) has announced the organization of security  for its president, the Rev. Anthony Evans, in light of the shooting at the  Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. last month, and to protect its  leader from possibly being “harmed by the forces of evil that support same-sex  marriage.

NBCI said in a recent statement: “The shooting underscores the violence that has  plagued the same-sex marriage debate. The security measures are necessary to  protect Rev. Evans and the NBCI stance for Christ and against same-sex  marriage.”

The “Reverend” Evans is infamous in Washington DC for his anti-gay antics.  At a 2010 D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics (BOEE) hearing , which concerned the proposed referendum on the recently passed marriage-equality bill. Evans demanded of the board members, ”Are you homosexual? Are any of your family members or friends homosexuals? Do you have any hatred in your heart towards the church? Do you have any hatred in your heart towards clergy? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then you should excuse yourself from these proceedings….”

A few days later, Evans sent an open letter to the NAACP  criticizing NAACP Chairman Julian Bond for supporting marriage equality. ”For the NAACP to take up this cause is an abomination and an affront for all African-Americans who died for human and civil rights.  You have ignored our voice and have the audacity to suggest that two men having sex with one another is a legitimate civil rights issue.”’

Richard J. Rosendall, vice president for political affairs for the Gay and Lesbian Activists Alliance (GLAA), has called Evans ”desperate,” ”an opportunist” and ”a clown.”

Sounds to me that Evans and his followers have a few “personal issues”.  Like insanity
