Hater warns against gay marriage

More Carrie news? Nope. From JammieWearingFool:

D.C. Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8), the only council member to vote against the bill today to legalize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere, predicted today there could be a "civil war" in the District if the Council decides to take up a broader gay marriage bill later this year.

"All hell is going to break lose," Barry said while speaking to reporters. "We may have a civil war. The black community is just adamant against this."

"What you've got to understand is 98 percent of my constituents are black and we don't have but a handful of openly gay residents," Barry said. "Secondly, at least 70 percent of those who express themselves to me about this are opposed to anything dealing with this issue. The ministers think it is a sin, and I have to be sensitive to that."

So, what bad names will Perez Hilton call Marion Barry? Or, we could use adjust Bob's smear, and call Barry a "Soldier of God and Gay Hating City Council Member."

I mean, let's put this in perspective. Carrie merely voiced her opinion on national tv. Marion Barry VOTED against it.
