Obama spiritual adviser 'disappointed' by gay marriage endorsement
Fox ^ | 5/12/12

A Florida pastor considered to be President Obama's spiritual adviser says he was disappointed by the president's decision to publicly announce his support for same-sex marriage.

The Rev. Joel Hunter told MyFoxOrlando that the president called him before his announcement aired. Hunter, the evangelical pastor of the 15,000 member Northland church in Longwood, said the decision makes it harder to support the president though he will continue to do so.

My guess is Obama's skin color has more influence on this pastor than does Scripture.

"...the decision makes it harder to support the president though he will continue to do so..."

The only explanation here is liberalism and race trump God if you are a liberal.

The black church has been the church of compromise (with this world) for a long time.

Obama's spiritual adviser?

Wouldn't that job description be akin to being Bernie Madoff's ethics adviser?

Pastor Hunter has not read the passage that you can not serve TWO masters?
I could no longer attend a church where the Pastor supports a political figure rather than the Word of God

.. the decision makes it harder to support the president

Should be simple for the pastor...God’s way or man’s way.

I suppose this decision ranks right up there with “...fourth trimester abortions...” and “...give Granny a pill...”

The man needs to spend some time studying the word...actually, Jeremiah 1:5 would be a great starting place.

Some in the church believe that government programs = Biblical compassion or charity. This is why Catholics were (are?) so involved in ‘social justice’.

I’ve never understood how one could reconcile socialism with “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” or “If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”

I’ve had this discussion with Catholic leaders and they reference the Good Samaritan story. But the Samaritan gave from compassion - not compulsion, so I still don’t get it.

No where in my Bible does it tell me I can expropriate my neighbor’s funds to ‘do good’.

That being said, I think God is still more interested in our spiritual condition than our financial state, and I know Christ expects you to follow Him even in an oppressive regime.

My question is why does O need a spiritual advisor?

Isn't he "The One"?

Good grief... what a piece of work.

It’s hard for this pastor (of what) to support satan, but he will continue to do so. What a load of crap.

True. But Rev. Joel Hunter does not represent the "black church.

He's a white Evangelical pastor.

My question is what good is an advisor if you ignore his advice?
