Wanda Sykes says she's "Proud to be Gay"

Shocking?! But good for her (singing Rihanna's "Live Your Life"). The recent Proposition 8 ban has led many people to become vocal about gay rights and I applaud her for speaking out. However, I hope this revelation doesn't come with tremendous backlash from the black community. For some reason, I'm assuming religious reasons?, black people are about 20 years behind the gay rights movement. I just think this is strange because in most black communities pregnant kids, drug dealers, and ex-convicts get more respect than homosexuals (wtf?).

Regardless of YOUR moral beliefs, please realize that you are not God and that each and every person will one day be judged based on their own merit. So take time and worry about yourself. I'm not gay, but I've never heard of that being my golden ticket for getting into heaven (if you can find this verse I may budge on this stance, because I'd like that golden ticket), so I don't know why straight people feel the need to stand on some pedestal and preach the "word" here....I'm just sayin' lets move forward.
