Why do gays hijack the black civil rights struggle ?

You hear it all the time: Gay activists claim that their push for gay marriage, added legal protections, gay affirmative action, and more gay rights are all the legacy of the African American struggle for Civil Rights.
Let me ask you: Is a gay pride parade the moral equivalent of the black civil rights marches in the South in the 1950s and 1960s ? When black leaders were being sprayed with firehoses, beaten with police clubs, and attacked by dogs, was their struggle the same as gays parading around half-naked on a float?
IS THIS …
THE SAME AS THIS …
Should someone have consulted with Rosa Parks to let her know that when she refused to move to the back of the bus, she was actually standing up for gay marriage, not just for ending segregation?
“When Rosa Parks defied the law, her fate and the outcome of her cause were uncertain. In San Francisco, the issue of gay rights has been settled in every area but marriage. As Jesse Jackson noted, gays always could vote and enjoyed other rights. The only question left is whether same-sex marriage can be called marriage -- and there are plenty of gay people who don't care about the outcome.”
To quote Barb Davis White:
“ROSA PARKS DID NOT MOVE TO THE FRONT OF THE BUS TO SUPPORT SODOMY.”
Forget for a minute the irony that statistically, most of the openly gay “districts” in the USA are predominately white and high-income. San Francisco’s Castro, New York’s West Greenwich Village and Chelsea… WHITE, WHITE, WHITE – and wealthy. Rich whites taking over the movement of poor blacks ? Hmmmm… no irony there?
It seems like the homosexual rights movement is hijacking the work of leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for their own agenda that has less to do with equality and more to do with destroying decency.
Here’s some more irony for you to chew on:
Most minority voters in California opposed gay marriage by voting Yes on Prop 8. This shocked the hell out of gay activists who chant the line that gay civil rights are a continuation of black civil rights. Well, seems that blacks don’t agree. Turns out Hispanics and Blacks, while they often vote Democrat, do have some essentially conservative values when it comes to family matters and protecting marriage.
Want another irony?
The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which is the group founded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (a Republican by the way), is still black and…anti-gay marriage. SCLC took a moral stand against gay marriage, and they were blasted by liberals and gay radicals for doing so, but they stuck to their beliefs like they always have.
Seems to me it is tantamount to racism for white gays to hijack the black struggle for civil rights for their own public relations purposes. It is convenient for gays to steal the thunder of a movement that endured firehoses and attack dogs to gain basic rights like voting and equal education.
Black civil rights and homosexual rights are two very different things. One has nothing to do with another.
The black struggle for desegregation, voting rights, and employment rights are on a much higher moral level than gay marriage.
