Is the fight for gay rights really akin to the civil rights movement? On The Takeaway, a black pastor says yes and a gay scholar says no. What do you think?
In 2005, Reverend Oliver White announced his support of gay marriage, and two-thirds of his congregation soon abandoned the church. The congregants left with their money, and in 2007, Reverend White was forced to take out a loan to keep the church afloat. Grace Community United now owes the bank $200,000, and the church is at great risk of closing its doors for good.
