Pastor Says Black Christians Should ‘Withhold Support’ From Obama Over Same-Sex Marriage

by on July 7, 2012

Amen! People who flock together because of their behavior should not be equated with people born with unique skin color, eye shape, or other physical characteristics.

The Coalition of African American Pastors last month requested a meeting with Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss how Obama had “broken [their] hearts” when he endorsed same-sex marriage as a civil right. Having received no White House response, the 1,300-member organization is calling on blacks to boycott the president, the Washington Examiner reported.

“By embracing gay marriage, President Obama is leading the country down an immoral path,” coalition president Rev. William Owens said in a statement. “The Black Church has always been the conscience of America, and today we are calling on black pastors and black Christians to withhold support from President Obama until he corrects course.”

“President Obama is the fulfillment of our dream for our sons — and he has broken our hearts by using his power and position to endorse as a civil right something that is simply wrong,” the statement said. “Some things are bigger than the next election.”

During a press conference this week, Owens said his organization is growing increasingly frustrated with Obama, according to the Christian Post.

“We can’t compete with the Hollywood folks who are raising the big bucks for the president,” he said. “But it was black folks who rallied around him in 2008 and for him to ignore our request with a group of clergy who represents tens of thousands of black Christians of many denominations is an insult.”

    Ron Paul is a loon when it comes to foreign policy. He suggested we let Iran have a nucler bomb so they’ll stop being jealous of countries that do have one. Considering Iran’s constant threats toward Israel, I would consider it highly immoral to allow Iran to get a bomb. So there you have it, three immoral candidates. Obama has to go and Paul doesn’t have the influence to coalesce enough delegates. Romney’s the guy…

    God would never vote for a President who allows 4,000 unborn babies each day. Why are Christians so confused as to majoring in the majors. Abortion is the first issue. Marriage is the second. Ron Paul is the only moral candidate but for some reason people dispise him. Voters deserve Obama or Romney after rejecting the only moral candidate. God will give you up to your wicked ways and leaders. Christians shoulder alot of the blame for no longer being salt and light.
