* From an AP story about black church opposition to gay marriage…
Bishop Lance Davis, who leads the roughly 500-member New Zion Christian Fellowship Church of Dolton, said blacks have fought for equality for the right to live as human beings, something he’s not convinced has been fully actualized.
“You can’t compare the two,” he said, citing the well-organized gay marriage advocacy in Illinois.
“I feel that those gays and lesbians have more power than I do. Have more rights than I do. More freedoms than I do.”
Bishop Davis is the chairman of the African-American Clergy Coalition’s political action committee, which is funding the anti side of the fight.
