Black Pastors Oppose Gay 'Marriage,' Warn Obama: We ‘Will Not Stand With You’
CNSNews ^ | 7/31/2012 | Penny Starr

Posted on 08/01/2012 11:30:33 AM PDT by South40

(CNSNews.com) – The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) announced at the National Press Club on Tuesday that the grassroots group - comprised of the more than 3,000 members - is a launching a national campaign to support marriage between one man and one woman and to oppose the Obama administration’s efforts to advance same-sex marriage.

“The time has come for a broad-based assault against the power that be that wants to change our culture to one of men marrying men and women marrying women,” CAAP President William Owens said at the press conference, held to announce the Marriage Mandate campaign, which includes a petition seeking 100,000 signatures pledging support for traditional marriage.

“Mr. President, I’m not going to stand with you, and there are thousands of others across this country that are not going to stand with you with this foolishness,” Owens said.

In a press release announcing the campaign, Owens encouraged black pastors and the black community to “withdraw their support for [Obama].”

This is why Obama had to suddenly be found to have the 1st American slave as his ancestor - even if it was thru the Dunhams - and even if there was no actual proof. They are hearing feedback from the “community” that Barry O’s “authenticity” may be a little tarnished.

They're a little late to the party. Should have been opposing ObaMugabe from day one.

Black Pastors Oppose Gay 'Marriage,' Warn Obama: We ‘Will Not Stand With You’

They won't stand with him on that solitary issue, or they won't stand with him on election day? I find very hard to believe, especially after some chastising by the national race pimps, they won't ultimately support Obama at the polls.

Right.

This coming from the demographic with at least a 70 percent illegitimacy rate...

We don’t do it ourselves but we damn sure will stand in the way of gays if they want to do it.

Hypocrisy is just as bad as the notion of gay marriage.

Is it just coincidental that this statement comes out on the great support marriage between a man an a woman by eating chicken day. Just saying?

The pastors may not vote for him, and maybe some of their church may not vote for him, but the majority of black losers have no connections with any church. They just want the freebees.

Hey, I’ll take any help we can get. I hope these guys prevail.

I believe it. I have a friend who attends a non-denominational black church, and says that many of the congregation will NOT vote for Obama for this reason...along with abortion. It may not be a member of the organization mentioned in the article, but some in the black churches are awakening.

Because I've seen it all before.

They threaten non-solidarity over this or over that, but come time to write it down in ink, and what happens?

Same old, same old.

Never more so than 2008.

If I thought that some black pastor needed courage and would take it from me, then I'd happily say "YES !!!". Because that's what I feel.

But, absent that, I'm waiting and seeing.

A statement of intent to not vote for 0bama is not the same as a statement of intent to vote for Romney. That would be a +2 in the ballot box. However, to the extent that this position keeps voters from voting for 0bama who otherwise would do so, then I’ll take the +1.

He’ll get 97% of their votes instead of 98%.

After watching the press interview where the White House Spokesman would not name Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel is reason enough not to vote for anyone in the Democratic Party.

I realize I'm saying this for the zillionth time, but . . .

Where have these Black pastors been the past fifty years as liberalism drifted from racial justice to leftism and immorality?

Where were they when their hero, Martin Luther King Jr. was writing papers a BU denying the basic teachings of chrstianity, the alleged religion of himself and most Black Americans?

Where were they when liberalism embraced abortion on demand?

Where were they when Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Joseph Lowery, the NAACP, et al, came to support abortion and homosexual "rights" as if John Brown had died for those issues?

Where were they when their liberal friends (who often attended their churches at election time) loudly ridiculed their white alleged co-religionists for worshiping almost exactly like Black churches worship?

Where were they when their liberal pals were drawing cartoons poking fun of Sarah Palin for allegedly speaking in tongues when so many Black chrstians do exactly that?

Where have they been for sixty years as school prayer and any and every public acknowledgement of G-d has been gradually removed from American life?

Where have they been while white rationalists and materialists have been pushing such European notions as materialism, humanism, rationalism, and evolution, even as they themselves claimed to be opposed to "western civilization?"

Where have they been since the beginning of Barack Hussein Obama's political career, consisting of (atheist) Communism, support for the PLO, and even voting to deny help to the survivors of botched abortions?

Why is there no prayer in schools in the many cities run by Black politicians? Why are Black-run municipalities G-d free zones that might as well be under the rule of Voltaire or August Comte?

Where were they when actual civil rights pioneers like Rev. Ralph David Abernathy (and even nutjobs like "Rev." James Bevel) were called "race traitors" and accused of "changing" their beliefs simply because they didn't "evolve" along with the rest of the Black community on moral issues???

Where the **** have they been? The answer is: nowhere to be found, other than screaming about issues that haven't been issues since 1965.

The "Black church" is a disgrace. I have come to wonder if it isn't every bit as much a racial-nationalist heresy as the so-called "Nation of islam."

And yes, I'm the guy who just other door raked racist Southern Baptists in Mississippi over the coals.

A lot of blacks may complain about Obama, but in the end they have people who depend on government benefits, who work for government, or who depend upon rigorous enforcement of affirmative action in order to keep cash in their wallets. The wallet is more important.

Single mother families are better than gay marriage. Do you object to Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin’s daughter, for keeping her baby? Illegitimacy is not the only way in which single mother families are created. Husbands die and their wives become widows. Some wives divorce because of cheating husbands. Other women leave their husbands because of domestic abuse.

Single parent families have existed in human history. But gay marriage is something completely new, and abnormal.

California’s Proposition 8, which defined marriage as being between a man and a woman passed with 80% of the black vote. Mostly, they do not support gays trying to redefine the word ‘marriage’. Their pastors may just be pandering to the flock.

Did you know that blacks provided the majority support for California’s Proposition 8? All it will take is for a small minority of them to switch, and we win; so why do people like you want to give moral blacks your bird fingers without even talking to them first?

While Blacks overwhelmingly supported Prop 8, they still went ahead and voted for Obama, whose position is diametrically opposed to their own. And the same goes for their support of every liberal Democrat politician for the past fifty years.

It wasn't his position at the time. Zer0 only recently came out in favor of redefining the word marriage. He had not yet stated that opinion when blacks voted for him in 2008.

Obama was a liberal Democrat. 'Nuff said.

The Black church has been in bed with moral nihilists for fifty years. Their political activity gives the lie to their "religious beliefs."

True enough. But blacks voted for Obama because he is considered black and because the democrat party has gotten them addicted to the entitlements. They didn't vote for him because he supported the bastardization of the word marriage. He does now, or at least he says he does. I don't believe that will be enough for them to break from the plantation and vote for the lily white rich guy, though. As Je$$e said...
