Making baseless assertions is definitely a choice, Mr. Owens

by Jeremy Hooper

Those who want to stigmatize us keep saying this as if it is even slightly grounded in fact:

"We are really tired of the homosexual community hijacking the civil rights movement," [William Owens, Sr. founder and president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors] tells OneNewsNow. "I did not choose to be black and you did not choose to be white -- and homosexuals make a choice to be homosexual. So why compare what we went through with your situation? It's not the same thing; there's no comparison." [SOURCE: ONN]

If it's a choice, I made it in a pre-cognizant state. If it's a choice, my zygote chose balls.

And if it's a choice, then your want and desire to smooch a dude is just a coin flip away. Right, Mr. Owens?
