African-American Church Leaders Condemn Obama For Gay Marriage Support
BALTIMORE (WJZ) Just days after President Barack Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage, pastors and priests around Maryland took to their own pulpits with their reaction and in some cases condemnation of the president.
Derek Valcourt explains the presidents comments have folks on both sides of the issue fired up.
Both sides hope the presidents position helps sway votes in their favor when the issue hits Marylands ballot this November.
I think same-sex couples should be able to get married, Obama said.
When Obama announced that his position on same-sex marriage had evolved, it outraged some African-American pastors like Pastor and Del. Emmett Burns.
He has said to his base, African-Americans, I am going against your beliefs and your thoughts, Burns said.
Hes so opposed to same-sex marriage, he told church members he will no longer support the president and now predicts Obama will lose the election because of it.
He and many other leaders are pouring their energies into gathering the signatures needed to put Marylands same-sex marriage law on the November ballot.
I think it might be a call to action for people to really express what they believe, Father Erik Arnold of Our Lady of Perpetual Help said.
In Maryland, some of the strongest opposition to the law has come from the black community about 30 percent of the population. Some African-American religious leaders are preaching about it
God said in every home, there needs to be a representation of his glory through manhood and femininity, Pastor Harry Jackson, Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, said.

The big bucket with extra butter!
Howdy Doody stepped in it this time.
In all this is ANYONE reporting that “same sex couples” can ALREADY get married....in a church, in a hall, anywhere....a State allows...they just want the FEDS approval, because THEN they can mandate ALL sorts of new rules...kinda like Affirmative Action....
We condemn him. we will still vote for him though.
Huh???? I thought the law was DOMA, even though our treasonous President and AG refuse to do their sworn duty under the law to support it.
Or wait, maybe to the msm the One's whim is law?
“......and now predicts Obama will lose the election because of it.”
And now for an “Oh Plueeez” moment. A majority of black Americans have their mouths super glued to the Federal government teat. The Bamster could have somebody operating a gay male prostitution business out of the Whitehouse basement and they would still vote Bamster. They would call it a Black Pride vote. It is a sad reminder of how low the bar is in much of black America.....
shout it out LOUD. There is no section of the population that is utterly lost to the democrats.
I watched the blonde haired spitter bully and berate some black pastors on MSNBC tonight. They were far more polite than they needed to be.
Have Christians been upset at Newsweek for using a Christian symbol to anoint Obama’s decision as Jesus like, or Saint like?
“Often, Christs halo is quartered by the lines of a cross or inscribed with three bands, interpreted to signify His position in the Trinity. Round halos are typically used to signify saints, meaning those people considered as spiritually gifted. A cross within a halo is most often used to represent Jesus. Triangular halos are used for representations of the Trinity. Square halos are used to depict unusually saintly living personages.”
That’s one putrid man.
Newsweek did us a favor this time. A shame Barney Frank wasn't in the background.
We all know the Left’s method is to inflitrate and subvert whitey Christians in their own churches and institutions. Homos have conquered many White chruches. Now with Obammy, they are progressing to Black churches.
LOl lol lol lol lol.
What comes around goes around and goes around and goes around. Black churches will fold like a house of cards. Their love of skin outweighs their love of Jesus’ truth.
So you believe black churches will join “whitey Christians” in apostasy and that seems hilarious to you?
It’s highly likely he’ll still get their pulpits pushing his party and 90% of the Black vote come November.
yep. Sorry. :)
Awesome, is this the reincarnation of Franklin Marshall Davis? Tadpoles evolve, Obummer remains in the SWAMP!
