The Southern Poverty Law Center designates the Nation of Islam as a hate group for its racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-gay rhetoric, and this weekend its leader Louis Farrakhan proved just how anti-gay it can be. Speaking at a conference in San Diego, Farrakhan attacked President Obama for his support of same-sex marriage and suggested that Newsweek was mocking him for calling him the “first gay President.” He claimed to not be preaching hate, but he relayed the story of Sodom and Gomorrah and proclaimed that “sin is sin according to the standard of God.” Watch it:
