Dream for Sale?
Greetings from Atlanta where we are preparing for Coretta Scott King's memorial service. My friend TJ from Chicago has come down to attend with Jesse Jackson's team. Early today we found out 'W' the president will speak at the service on Tuesday.
Essentially what we are concerned about is that those who will speak up for LGBT human rights are being pushed aside and won't be heard from at Tuesday's mammoth service at Greater Macedonia New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. Between Bishop Eddie Long's rhetoric & 'W's dopey doublespeak, we are not sure this service will even reflect the dream of Coretta or MLK.
To put it as one African American liberal pastor from NYC put it, "Berneice King is stroking the...very same people who killed her daddy."
Maybe it sounds tough and bitter, but, we're asking, is the dream is for sale? Because it's clear 'W' and the Bishop are more than ready to pay the bills.
god over me, god before me, god behind me; on thy path, o god, thou in my steps...
