"The demons done showed up!"
Bishop Harry Jackson's anti-gay zealots saved the best for last with this bizarre testimony by self-professed "Christian" Earnestine Copeland, the final witness testimony before the Washington D.C. Council on the proposed marriage equality bill. Copeland ranted on Sodom and Gomorrah, "devils" and "demons" and compared same-sex relations and marriage to bestiality. Then she veered into conspiracy theories and reasons for being fired from her last job. lolz.
DC-based gay activist and marriage equality strategist Michael Crawford live-Tweeted the hearings. Crawford—seen in the background in the red tie—estimates there were 81 testifying for equality, 15 against, and 8 no-shows.
Hearings resume November 2.
