Gay Rights Groups to Morgan

We DEMAND Apology

6/10/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The largest gay rights groups in the country are condemning Tracy Morgan's homophobic stand-up act in Nashville ... insisting, "anti-gay violence is not something to joke about."


TMZ spoke with Jarrett Barrios -- the President of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation -- who tells us the organization is investigating the situation, and if the reports are true, "We call on him to remove these violently anti-gay remarks from his show and send a strong message that anti-gay violence is not something to joke about."

The Human Rights Campaign is equally upset -- telling us, "Hateful remarks that mock youth suicides and the very real emotional and sometimes physical bullying LGBT kids face on a daily basis have no place in a comedy routine.”

The group adds, "If these allegations are true, Tracy Morgan must immediately accept responsibility and apologize.”

How is God creating someone gay breaking God's statues? God created all of us, hetero, gay, lesbian, bi, and transgender people just the way we are. The prohibitions against same-sex sex (not to be confused with same-sex attraction, nor same-sex love) found in the Bible was written by mortal man who thought it was displeasing and unclean. The word "abomination" means extreme dislike it does not mean sin.

What will happen here is that he will apologize and the Gay Groups will still not be satisfied. If you ask for an apology and receive it you should drop it.
