Audio: Another Amendment 1 preacher, another personal attack on LGBT people's human worth

by Jeremy Hooper

It's no surprise to hear First Baptist Church of Charlotte's Mark Harris preaching in favor of the state's discriminatory marriage amendment, considering he's been a big part of the Vote For Marriage NC coalition all along and that his church has been running banner ads for the campaign for months now. It is, however, quite insightful to note just how far beyond the issue of marriage Dr. Harris' words, just like this entire campaign, actually reach:


SOURCE: Marriage Sunday–4/29/12 [FBC Charlotte]

Dear scared LGBT kids in Dr. Harris' pews: You are fine. You are dandy. You will find your peace. Hang in there. I know what you're hearing and I know how scary it can be. I've been there—in the south, in the pews, in an even unfriendlier climate. No one else gets to define you, your worth, or your destiny, no matter how much he or she might confuse decibel level for merit.
