Curve Ball

Something the Rockies don't seem to know how to throw right now (as I speak it's 13-1, hence the blogging). Anyways... the other curve ball of the day comes amidst the hullabaloo over the Donnie McCurklin/Obama story. Never mind that Obama's policy proposals and record on LGBT issues are identical to that of any other major Democratic candidates. Never mind that the same McClurklin stood on stage performing and raising money for Bill Clinton in '92.

In response over the controversy the Obama campaign has added Rev. Andy Sidden to the "Embrace the Change" South Carolina campaign tour. Who is Andy Sidden? Well he is one of South Carolina's only openly gay pastors. Talk about damage control.

This is obviously something the campaign is not smiling about in a week where the new Jesse Jackson Jr. radio spot came out and was making waves.

He's a bigot.


He is standing on stage with a BIGOT. Someone who says 'homosexuality is a curse and should be cured.' This isn't policy disagreement - this is bigotry, plain and simple. Obama shows a disgusting lack of leadership and integrity standing on stage with such a man (I honestly don't think he's bigoted, but he needs to take a stand).

He could bring every gay UU pastor in America on stage and it wouldn't change the fact that he's arm and arm with a BIGOT.

I'm confused. Is he a bigot? The post above me did not use the word bigot enough to clarify that.
