Jackie Cannon: Great show guys! As a Black woman and a lesbian, Nov 4th was indeed bittersweet. Tears of joy and then anger, my heart bursting and then breaking that I'm still being rejected. I think a lot of my anger was just plain hurt. I blogged all angry saying I am tired of fighting the God people , I just want my rights. I wrote about the dehumanization of gay people that enables people to so easily dismiss us and our rights. Yes, it pissed me off to hear that 70% of black folks voted for the ban. I do lay homophobia among Black people squarely on the church. Certainly not all churches but too many have a tradition of homophobia. Monica and I belong to a church in Hyde Park. The same denomination as Obama's former church, United Church of Christ. (UCC) The terrible weird thing about Barack having to oust Rev. Wright from the scene, is he was so very pro-gay. That particular church (Trinity) has put out into the world the most progressive ministers and congregation in this country. Wright actually was extremely disliked by black ministers because of his open and LOUD, unapologetic, pro-GLBT stance. So nope it's not all churches. Obama's public and private position different? Actually I heard Obama in a debate for Senator say, "one step at a time". He said he was mostly interested now in securing equal rights and leaving marriage up to each persons own church. So what's the next step? Marriage? Hey, I believe Laura Bush is for gay marriage too and I think Jenna Bush voted for Obama. How 'bout that. When you say you are undecided....you guys know what that means. Like when asking a celeb if they are gay and they say, it's personal. C'mon now. (Ricky Martin)

Jeff: Hi Amy! Quite a show...Mitchell is really opinionated...I love the podcast altogether...Jeff
