President Obama Is Ending Black America's 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Policy (Obama is the Messiah!)
The Atlantic ^ | May 17, 2012 | Aisha C. Moodie-Mills

Posted on 05/18/2012 7:20:14 AM PDT by C19fan

Since President Obama declared his support for marriage equality last week, many politicos (including myself) have speculated about whether black voters, who are divided on the issue, will abandon him. The consensus among gay rights supporters and foes alike is a resounding "no." Sure, some black clergy are outraged, but even they admit this issue is no deal breaker. And the ongoing debate over an unlikely black backlash eclipses what promises to be the most profound impact of the president's "evolution."

President Obama has single-handedly dismantled the "don't ask, don't tell" policy within the black church -- that silent disdain on issues of sexuality that renders black gay and transgender people all but invisible, shames people living with HIV, and masquerades as love-the-sinner-hate-the-sin compassion.

According to this author Obama to the black church is more important than the Bible and Jesus. This will be put to the test when gay marriage is on the Maryland ballot this November.

Another manifestation of racism: There is nothing Obama could do that would lose the great majority of the black vote.

It’s simple. By and large, there is nothing that Zero could do to lose the black vote. NOTHING.

Obama Campaign Slogan:

Barack Obama - Making the world more comfortable for sodomites and pederasts since 2009.

It’s appearing with each passing day that this issue isn’t anything that matters enough to turn voters away from Obama.

Does this mean that Negros "do as they are told" by Mulattoes?

Do I detect a hierarchy?

The leftists keep telling themselves, and the rest of us, that all Americans think the newer gayer Obama is FABulous!, but the polls don't back them up.

Gay marriage got shot down in California mainly due to the high turnout of blacks voting against it. You didn't hear as much about it because it was much safer for gays to protest against little old ladys at Mormon churches than little old ladies in Compton whose grandsons might be gang members.

He’ll get nearly the same percentage of the black vote,
but not nearly as many total black votes.

They’ll stay home.

Unfortunately, this is true. Black “culture” is a mindless cult that demands unconditional support for “leaders”.

Gays have a lower birth rate, higher education rate, higher incomes, and a lower incarceration rate. If Barack encourages more gays in black families, it will be the most he has ever done for the black community.

I think most black voters will still vote against gay marriage; probably it will gain just a few percentage points of support because of the Obama endorsement. However, the One will also get 100% of the black vote. His “First Gay President” act will have no effect on that at all.

Very true. They do crave being "led."

The article author says that Obama has forced blacks to take a position, where before they could make believe Obama believed in traditional marriage which we could see through from day one from his real policies.

MSNBC has held a few short mini-debates between blacks on the issue of same sex marriage, each debate with a black (liberal) Christian vs black progressive. It is interesting to watch to learn the views of the former.

The views of both are very similar on redistribution and race victim-hood and the federal government, and both always say they are good friends. But the (liberal) black Christian says that the Bible is clear about the definition of marriage. That is the only difference I see so far between the two.

By liberal Christian I don't mean phonies like Pelosi either.

A black Democrat friend told me that this issue, same sex marriage and the Bible, is the one that will cause black Christians the most grief with Obama.

MSNBC treats blacks who oppose same sex marriage on their shows civilly as principled individuals, but they treat whites who argue the same on MSNBC as KKK racists.

As Neal Boortz says, they’re voting for him because he looks like them.

It is straight up racism in every true sense of the word. If I did the same (vote for a candidate because he is of my race) no one would dispute I was a racist. True equality demands we see it the same way.

So I ask the black community the following: Do you want true equality, or do you simply want the whip hand?

Black church-goers that traditionally sing praises to God on Sunday with great fervor should open their bibles and read John 12:43..."for they loved praise from men more than praise from God".

If that verse means anything to them, one hopes they'll take heed and stop substituting a mulatto man and his destructive socialist policies for Jesus and his righteous teachings.

By the time the election comes around, this will all be forgotten and forgiven.

And bet on this, Romney won’t touch this.

The church is supposed to be the bride of Christ, not the mistress of this world.

Society offered the black community money, social programs, and “recognition”; but in exchange demanded support for abortion, gay rights, etc.

And the black church consented; we get what we want, and we’ll support you, no matter what else is on your agenda.

So much for the faithful bride...

It wouldn't even be a deal breaker if he sold them back into slavery. Their mindset is stupefying, and is just another indication on how hard it must be on black conservatives.

Of course - because it's all about the color of his skin, don't you know.

Martin Luther King must be rolling in his grave. This is definitely not the dream he spoke of.

If a ballot had both gay marriage and Obama on it, they will vote against the gays and for Obama, despite anything Obama may do or say. They know he’s fudging for votes, and they’re OK with it.
