Prayer Vigil Addresses Concerns For Gay Blacks

 

 LEESBURG, VA - Tuan N'Gai, noted civil rights activist, author, and founder of Silence Equals Consent (silenceequalsconsent.org), announces plans for a prayer vigil scheduled for Lithonia, GA. Minister N'Gai plans to pray for the end of pedophilia and homophobia in the Black Church. The event will also honor the memories of LGBT teenagers who recently took their own lives.

 

On November 13, 2010 at 1pm, Silence Equals Consent will hold the “Breaking the Silence” Vigil in Lithonia, Georgia near the campus of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, the current epicenter of an alleged predatory scandal involving members of the 25,000-member church.

 

"There have been five young people who have ended their lives for fear of being ostracized by the community, and that has to end,” N'Gai stated. “Also, there are young people who are being harmed by the twin offenses of silence and pedophilia in the Black Church, and that too must end.”

 

Elder Kevin E. Taylor, pastor of the Unity Fellowship Church, New Brunswick, NJ, says, "This is the insidious and ingenious plan of the pedophile to paint the homosexual as an unfit role model in an effort to keep him or herself from being exposed.”

 

Clergy from across the religious spectrum have been invited to speak, and lead prayers, including Bishop Carlton Pearson (Christ Universal Temple ,Chicago, IL), Bishop Yvette Flunder (Founder, The Fellowship, San Francisco, CA), Elder Kevin Taylor (Unity Fellowship Church - New Brunswick, NJ), Pastor Dennis Meredith (Tabernacle Baptist Church, Atlanta, GA), and Alex D. Byrd (Living Faith Covenant Church, Dallas, TX).
