Say What? MSNBC’s Obama Crazed Talking Head, Chris Matthews lectured a black pastor on gay marriage,
“I hope you evolve.” – Via NewsBusters: Matthews interviewed Bishop Harry Jackson, who has spoken out against Barack Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage. Speaking of Jesus Christ, Matthews ridiculously linked accusations that Mitt Romney once bullied a teen, nearly 50 years ago: “Do you think [Christ] would have been chasing after the kid with long hair and cutting his hair or he would have been the one protecting the kid with long hair in high school?”
“But you’re with the guy who was going after the kid with long hair.” (Pastor Jackson informed the host that he was not, yet, supporting Romney.)
Fellow black minister, Reverend Delman Coates also appeared on the show. After Coates indicated he supported gay marriage, Jackson retorted, “Why not let the Muslims have polygamy and bigamy?”
This prompted Matthews to insultingly suggest: “I hope you evolve…I’m just teasing.”
Could you imagine what would happen if a white conservative news anchor told a black pastor “I hope you evolve?” You would have Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton calling for a boycott and an immediate termination of the anchor. Don’t you love the double standard?
