Bishop Harry Jackson, of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Maryland, held a small rally for his followers (at Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC) to protest the unanimous vote by the City Council to recognize same-sex marriages that have been legally performed in other states.

Current City Councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry states here that he is united with the churches against gay marriages, chanting, "No Same-Sex Marriage in DC." He calls himself a moral politician and says that he is for civil unions. His opposition to this bill is surprising to many because he is reported to have co-sponsored the very bill that he is now stating that he is opposed to.

Several other preachers join them and repeatedly call gay marriages a perversion and closely associate gay sex and gay relationships with evil, immoral behavior such as incest and pedophilia. Numerous times Jackson and others say that same-sex marriage has nothing to do with civil rights, and that equating interracial marriage and the civil rights struggle of blacks is wrong and offensive.

Tony Perkins and others appear in Part 2 of this video along with a stunning prayer service directed at the building that houses the City Council.
