Black Pastors: Banning Chick-Fil-A From Cities "Same Thing" as Banning Blacks From Restaurants

Eric Scheiner reports at CNSNews.com:

The President of the Coalition of African-American Pastors says supporters of traditional marriage are facing the same discrimination that blacks faced during the civil rights movement.

“Some people are saying because of the position that Chick-fil-A has taken -- they don’t want them in their cities,” Rev. William Owens said at the National Press Club on Tuesday.

“It’s a disgrace. It’s the same thing that happened when I was marching for civil rights, when they didn’t want a black to come into their restaurant, they didn’t want us staying in their hotels. Now they’re saying, because we take a Christian position, they don’t want us in their cities.”

Owens continued, “Well, we won’t take it. We will stand up and they will learn, they will learn that they can’t do that to any people, by destroying religion, by destroying the family, we will stand up.”
