Did Big Al actually say the words, "cruising for trade"? Who's writing his speeches these days? I've long had complicated emotions about Reverend Sharpton over the years, but points due to the man who's speaking realness right about now...

"cruising for trade..." damn, i have heard it all now...

I love Al Sharpton. Brothers and sisters, if you can, make sure you support Sharpton's National Action Network; that brother always show respect towards us.

Since Tabernacle Bapitst Church was mentioned, it should also be mentioned that in addition to it being one of the most gay-friendly churches in ATL....their pastor Rev. Dennis Meredith came out to his congregation as being BI-SEXUAL in a sermon he preached the first Sunday of the new year. He's been divorced from his wife for nearly a year. one of their sons is gay and he serves as the minister of music at the church.

PREACH PREACHER!

SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER AND AUDACITY TO LUNACY!

ENOUGH!
ENOUGH!
ENOUGH!

THIS IS MASTERFUL AND I AM GOING TO LINK THIS STORY EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!

Luther

Go on, just love me some Rev Al, and, he called them out for what they are, and, he knows like everybody other than those in the pews week in and week out, that half those so called deacons, preachers, bishops and arch-bishops are cruising for trade when they have tired of those guys in the choir.

Keep it real now, most are just money grubbing hypocrites!

Otis

PREACH REV. PREACH!!!

(waving myself with church fan)

Nathan James

Now that's a "bully pulpit!" Tell 'em, Rev. Al, and too bad if they don't like it!

FREELEO

ok, i'm loving rev al more and more these days.

TheRevKev

FREELEO! AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH! IT'S ABOUT HIM MORE AND MORE WITH EVERY TV APPEARANCE!

Thank you Rev. Al. Now I think I know how you are going to fit indirectly into the Obama administration.

I stand 100% behind you on your "where were you when" questions. I am sure you are going to have to repeat that many a time after Obama takes office and the bible thumpers in the south start their shouting.

Sic'em Al.

j. brotherlove

Did Al just say "cruising for trade"? *dead*

Duwayne

Thank the Lord for the good ole Rev. Al!

thegaytekeeper

I've never really paid any attention to what Al says, but this time I am GLAD I did...preach on AL preach on...

Chuma a.k.a. Christopher Hicks-Marshall

See this is why I love Al Sharpton. He gets a bad wrap for the wrong reasons, FOR REAL.

tokunbo

oh sweet jesus no he did not say "cruising for trade"

*ded*

Both Sharpton and Jackson Sr have been vocal supporters of gay people's rights longer than most religious leaders or politicians. I love them both. I also love the Reverend giving the benediction at the inauration, Reverend Joseph Lowery.

The only reason for these progressive black preachers to come out in support of gay people's civil rights is their sense of justice--there is no other gain in it for them.

Anthony in Nashville

Al Sharpton has his critics, but I have always liked him. I think he's one of the few people who will tell it like it is even if it upsets people.

To read about him mentioning trade was the highlight of my day.

Ana

Woo-hoo! You GO, Reverend!

S. Flemming

I can't believe he uttered the word TRADE ... that is hilarious! Preach!

banjiboi

He betta stop with all that! I would've loved it even more if he'd said,

"...lurking in the parks and tea rooms at midnight, cruising for trade"

Oooo. That reminds me.....
