Black leaders reject marriage amendment
By Jordan Green
Wednesday, April 4,2012

Some black Democrats have kept quiet about an amendment on the primary ballot that would change North Carolina’s constitution to say only marriages between a man and a woman are recognized, stuck in an awkward spot between constituents’ conservative social values and a political initiative advanced by Republican rivals.

Others are speaking out against the proposed amendment, charging that it is a ploy to divide the Democratic base and hurt President Obama’s chances for reelection.

“Folks, it is a wedge issue that was put in place to divide our community, to divide our churches, to create another Ohio 2004 situation that has resulted in a divided African- American community that resulted in George W. Bush getting four more years in office,” Ed Hanes Jr., a candidate for NC House District 72, told Democratic voters at Shiloh Baptist Church in Winston-Salem on March 31. “It’s an amendment put in place to ensure that we stay not focused on what our ultimate goal needs to be, and that is ensuring that our president, Barack Hussein Obama, is reelected this year.”

Don't these idiots realize that the ballot initiative is next month, in May? How in the world is it going to affect the election of their fuhrer in November? It was placed during the May primary exactly because of outcries from DemoLeftists for this very reason. They got their way.

Stupidity keeps reaching new, unprecedented heights.

Forget "here," read his record:
- Pro-abortion
- Pro-same-sex "marriage"
- Pro-homosexual imposition (ENDA)
- Pro-big government
- Pro-Obamacare (the author, specifically)
- Pro-sodomized military

Yeah, but you think that's all just peachy, apparently.

Oh, silly me. They are one and the same.

Romney will rehire Van Jones, Eric Holder, Cass Sunstein and their ilk, will encourage class and race wars, will back stab Israel and other allies, will have rappers and other garbage in the WH, will take months of vacays and golf days each year, hates America and Christians (especially white ones), has a disgusting grifter for a wife who will vacay and partay on your dime (including Lobster and Kobe Beef as a daily course--also on your dime), is Chicago corrupt, lies like a dog on a rug, is a narcissist etc. ad nauseum. I'm done with the GOP and that silly voting thing. My children will understand.

You’re still asleep. You’ll wake up when Romney finishes the job that Obamao started; you won’t be able to doze anymore.

Well then I guess he supports gay marriage.

Thanks Libloather.
Folks, it is a wedge issue that was put in place to divide our community, to divide our churches, to create another Ohio 2004 situation that has resulted in a divided African- American community that resulted in George W. Bush getting four more years in office... It's an amendment put in place to ensure that we stay not focused on what our ultimate goal needs to be, and that is ensuring that our president, Barack Hussein Obama, is reelected this year.
By "our president", the racist reverend-in-name-only who spewed that anti-Christian racist nonsense meant, Bush was white, and as black racists, they needed to be unified in their opposition to a Republican -- because the racist leadership of the so-called black community preys on black racism to make sure the so-called black community is nothing but a rubber-stamp for the Demwits. Always.

That doesn't mean they're on the Demwit plantation -- what it means is, they are volunteering to be the Demwits' prison bitches.

To support abject wickedness, or Obama? Jesus or Obama? Just who are they worshiping? If they support Obama over Jesus they had better start calling themselves Obamaians and forget about even pretending to be Christians. Better change their churches into temples for Obama worship. They better not even try to worship the real and living God at the same time because He doesn't share His glory with another, and most certainly not another who stands for immoral depravity. They have a choice to make and if they value their souls it had won't be Obama.

The Black churches, even in the rural South, are apparently a lost cause. These so-called "pastors" care more for electoral alliances with perverts than their own alleged "religious beliefs."

I suppose almost all Black ministers have now joined their hero Martin Luther King Jr. in his theological liberalism.
