Sadly ... yes. Patti Labelle and Eddie Long have apparently joined forces. This Easter Sunday Morning 'Miss' Patti will perform three songs from her new CD, Classic Moments, at the Easter Services of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta Georgia.
Miss Pattie knows that her fan base are mostly gay men, and has embraced us in the past. So WTF??!! Are album sales so bad she would consort with this devil?
In Dec. '04, notoriously homophobic Bishop Eddie Long led a march in downtown Atlanta that attracted more than 10,000
participants ignorant black so-called Christians to oppose same-sex marriage sanction a constitutional amendment to oppress gays and lesbians.
Descendants of slaves can be quite forgetful. Patti, on the other hand, should learn the price of forgetting who put her on that pedestal. Every self-respecting homosexual should boycott Miss Labelle, her new album, her new movie, magazines she's on the cover of, and anything else we can think of to send a message that we do not appreciate her brand of 'sometimey' support.
It's a sad day for me ... for I truly love Pattie. A part of me believes she'll quickly realize the error of her decision, and apologize. But until then, we must turn our collective back on her.
No one gets a free ride off our community dollars. Not even Miss Pattie.
