Video: Maryland Marriage Alliance head vs. Obama's pastor, 'lifestyle choices', and church/state separation in general

by Jeremy Hooper

What follows is over one hour of the man leading the charge to stop *CIVIL* marriage equality in Maryland, Derek McCoy, preaching in a local church. Keep an ear open for:

  • McCoy using the word "lifestyle choice" (@16:48) and then saying (around 37:55) that people in certain "lifestyles" need "God to deliver [them]"

  • McCoy claiming (around 40:20) that President Obama is lacking a "moral voice" on this issue because he listened to his pastor, Jeremiah Wright

  • McCoy (around 52:00–55:00) equates "persecution" of marriage inequality voices like his to the persecution of Prophets

  • McCoy (around 1:00:30) likens marriage law barring gays to laws that bar stealing

  • McCoy (around @1:01:00) claiming Dan Cathy didn't say anything against gays, even though Cathy claimed, empirically, that gays' marriages are inviting judgement on this nation

  • McCoy (@1:07:04) claiming there's "no big bang theory"

  • McCoy (1:10:13–1:11:20) preaching that doctors don't heal people—Christ does

  • McCoy (in the last four minutes or so) repeatedly claiming that pastors who support the President's stance are "selling out the gospel" and doing so simply because they're trying to give the President a pass

  • The overall, aggressively arrogant notion that his personally-chosen faith views should limit other people's civil freedoms
