Leon Gray and the Anti-Gay Black Religious Right

"Progressive Talk" 680's Leon Gray was at it again today, questionning teaching about sexual orientation in public schools, and it was a frustrating drive home from work listening to caller after caller voicing anti-gay bigotry and attacking the "gay agenda." What is it about Memphis and anti-gay religious fanaticism? It crosses party lines and seems just as ingrained in black churches as the White Republican Christian Right.. their anti-gay rhetoric is identical.

Too Bad Leon Gray gets tongu- tied every time he tries to discuss gay issues and always agrees with the religious fanatics who dish the Separation of Church and State and preach the anti-gay theocratic gospel. Why can't 680 am offer a real "progressive" voice on Memphis radio? Wouldn't it be refreshing to hear someone on Memphis Radio stand up to the religious fundamentalists and theocrats and DEFEND the separation of church and state, and gay rights without reservations?

And 680 AM needs to quit that crap about how Leon Gray speaks "Truth"... give me a break!
He doesn't even understand science or the Constitution of the United States!

I'm sorry, anyone who does not support teaching Evolution and sex education in public schools, the Separation of Church and State, women's reproductive rights, and FULL civil rights for gays and lesbians is NOT "Progressive"!
