‘Those who…read Comer’s Commentary might see what we are up against… The gay community knows that as long as we are weak, they are strong!’ – Rev. Mark Creech
Christian Action League
Matt Comer has a long resume of homosexual activism for a young man in his twenties. A native of Winston-Salem, Comer has been stumping for gay rights since age 14 and has worked with a number of local, regional and national gay rights organizations over the years.
Comer currently lives in Charlotte where he is employed as the editor of QNotes, a publication that describes itself as the LGBT publication of the Carolinas. QNotes boast of a bi-weekly print circulation of 10,000, which is distributed in major cities and small to medium sized cities in the Carolinas. It also has an online edition they say receives tens of thousands of hits each month.
Recently, Comer wrote a commentary on the Christian Action League referring to its efforts to recover from financial hardship as “The Christian Panhandling League.”
“The commentary by Matt Comer demonstrates its own hatred and bigotry toward Christians that won’t affirm the homosexual lifestyle. But worse still, it mocks our righteous cause and implies the lack of funds we suffer is proof that their cause is destined to succeed,” said executive director of the Christian Action League, Rev. Mark Creech. “I can only hope and pray that those who identify with our values and read Comer’s commentary might see what we’re up against. We are in a war for our culture’s identity, for the future of marriage and the family, and ultimately this issue will affect religious liberty. The gay community knows that as long as we are weak, they are strong!” added Creech.
Below is Comer’s commentary in full, which may also be accessed by clicking here:
“Keep your friends close and your enem…I mean, friends with whom you simply disagree…closer. How many anti-LGBT groups’ email lists are you subscribed to? I’m on several. I love keeping up with the folks who are out to cause our community harm. I’m in the loop, can counter whatever message they might be broadcasting today and can keep abreast of their fewer and fewer successes and mounting failures.
You can call it outright cruel, but I’ve been especially giddy after learning of the months-long financial crisis inside Raleigh’s Christian Action League, a teetotaling, anti-gay network of fundamentalist and evangelical churches, religious groups and pastors. It seems our “friends” in wolves’ clothing continue to suffer under the weight of a $21,000 debt.
Back in September, the League’s executive director, Rev. Mark Creech, sent out his first of several messages begging and pleading for donations. Unfortunately, his wife got sick just as he began his master plan to get the League back on track. Regardless, wifey is better now and Creech has again picked up his guitar and put out the hat for those who care to toss him some change. What kind of entertainment is he offering in order to garner all that supposed support out there? It’s just the same old worn out song and dance we’ve heard and seen time and time again.
To the tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle,” sing with me now: “Queers are raising lots of dough, they’ll take o’er before you know. Anal sex in our classrooms, pedophiles will come next soon. Queers are claiming victory, we’ve got to stop this sodomy!”
Meanwhile, and this is really what’s got poor Creech’s knickers in a twist, Equality North Carolina is drowning in a flood of cash. Along with a coalition of parent, youth and education groups, ENC successfully pushed for an LGBT-inclusive anti-bullying bill last year. This year, they’re embarking on an initiative to end anti-gay discrimination in state employment. And, North Carolina remains without an anti-gay marriage amendment. For six years in a row. Maybe Creech should get some singing and dancing lessons? : :”
Please give generously to help clear out the Christian Action League’s debt and prepare for Equality North Carolina’s push to give special rights to homosexuals in state employment. The Christian Action League also wants to renew its efforts for the approval of legislation that would allow North Carolinians to vote to define marriage in its Constitution as “one man and one woman.”
