Why two black D.C. pastors support marriage equality

The Washington Post
December 20, 2009
The Rev. Dennis W. Wiley and the Rev. Christine Y. Wiley, pastors of Covenant Baptist Church in Washington D.C.:
Last week, two black D.C. Council members voted against the freedom to marry bill. But five black council members voted for it. Our black mayor signed it on Friday, and our black congressional representative has promised to defend it on Capitol Hill. Although the bill faces the possibility of intervention by Congress, something revolutionary is happening in this city to debunk the notion that homophobia is entrenched in the black community.
