A beautiful video message from Believe Out Loud with pastors outside the Supreme Court, talking about marriage equality and what they would like to say to the LGBT community!
“…it’s no coincidence that black Christians in the public eye are often overlooked by the religious right and the media until they express religious opinions that ﬁt into the politicized framing of the culture wars (see: Bishop Harry Jackson, Ben Carson and, of course, Chris Broussard).
