Posted on 09/04/2012 3:41:07 PM PDT by HokieMom
A group of black pastors in Virginia held a meeting to discuss how to encourage their congregations to vote for President Barack Obama.
Around two dozen clergy from various churches in the area met for two hours on Saturday in Chesapeake, discussing possible ideas for motivating support for Obama among their congregations. "We are concerned that many of our congregants are developing an aversion to supporting the president at the polls," read the invite email, which was sent out last month.
The major concern among the clergy was that Obama's support for same-sex marriage would prompt many African Americans to refuse to vote for Obama come November. Since President Obama announced that he had changed his position on same-sex marriage from opposition to support, many black pastors have stated their opposition to voting for Obama in the 2012 presidential election.

Support the down-low?
I hope they have flame retardant suits.
Sorry, I have no faith,,,the African American vote will go to O,,Christian or not. It’s just a given.
Oh silly me, I thought this type of thing was illegal.
Cant have tax-exempt religious institutions being used for politics, can we....unless you are black and left-wing.
Obama could wipe his arse with the Bible and wizz on the cross, yet way too many Black Christians will STILL vote for him.
They are black first and Christian second.
So brothas and sistas in tribal trumps bros and sis’s in Christ.
Well what do you expect when you have congregations that go out and part and get drunk Friday and Saturday nights then go to church to repent on Sunday? Very common in black churches. This doesn’t apply to all of them though. There are many that follow the Word. It’s just that the artiers ill probably vote for Obama.
Which part of "Vote fo' obama or else" you don' unnerstand, honkey?
Dilute the real meaning of the words____(fill in the blank)____.
Use "purifying" synonyms to dissolve the bitterness, the anguish, the agony, the disgust of these words, leaving an "antiseptic" version of the truth.
Use words like "Choice, Gay, Public Assistance, Fairness...." instead.
My mom just told me she won’t vote for Obama this time because of his support for gays. My jaw dropped and I thought to myself, “That’s the only reason?!” She will vote for Romney instead. I think she even liked what she heard during the RNC convention.
Awesome! Praise the Lord :^)
What the heck happened to this bunch ignoring the “I have a Dream” Speach that they preach every year on ML King Day? You know, . . .”judge a man by his character, and not by the color of his skin”. Looks to me like they are totally ignoring their boy ML King’s advice.
Those Pastors, and the rest of black America, should remember that it was the Democrats that defended and supported slavery and its expansion to the new States prior to the Civil War....it was the new Republican party that fought against slavery.
Yep, color trumps all, eventually.
There is going to be a hot place in Hell for these wicked so called shepherds. What a disgraceful!
I can hear them now: “Just ‘cause he encourages folks who confuse the anus with the vagina ain’t no reason to get all wee-weed up.”
Because race and skin tone trumps Biblical pricipals right? Cowards! They will reap their reward!
Like the option to kill the congregation's unborn members, even if they survive the first attempt. Or paying people to do nothing, which keeps them caught in a cycle of disenfranchisement and dependency on a benevolent benefactor. Or what about how Obama tries to make people dislike one another because some have more money? (As I recall, the bible gives two enthusiastic thumbs up to envy.) And there's the ever popular support of gay marriage, which the rich white liberals demanded and got. The bible gives that one a hearty endorsement, too, so no problems there.
Black pastors should have no problem encouraging their congregations to vote for Obama! He's the recipe for a
crime-ridden, aborted, disheartened, frustrated, unemployed utopian black community!
Yeah, one person at a time. I’m pretty sure my dad will follow suit.
Come on, pastors - get past the “black” and look what this a-hole is doing to the country - and to you!
Dathans, looking to keep their people in Egypt.
cuzz you know, if them Republicans win, black chuirches will burn...
I find this bewildering.
If the pastors cannot come up with reasons to get their congregations to vote for Obama, why do they feel the need to try to convince them in the first place?
It just makes no sense (not to mention that it’s illegal).
its impossible for a born-again child of God to either be a democrat or to vote for someone who promotes evil like obama does.
Too bad they didn’t have Reverend Manning down to tell them “..how the cow ate the cabbage...” He had been straight up Dear Leader from the beginning...
You are SOOOO correct. Not to mention, we KNOW obama is a muslim islam and no black pastor SHOULD vote for such filth.
0bama is there. He is there twice....See the chairs?
And yes, that was physically threatening.
Then again, 0bama, Ayres and Farrakhan walked in to vote in 2008 at the same time. You can’t find those pix/vids anymore.
If you want on/off the VA Ping List, please freepmail me. Thanks!
I guess they like a Muslim president

Sounds like a “bar” joke. obozo, ayers and ferrekhan walk into a bar. They look at each other and say “who plays the race card for free drinks today?”
Or something like that...

IMHO my tag says it all
What is there to discuss? If the Democrats leave God out of their platform, what good then is a Pastor when you deny the Word of God? Does that mean that they will put obama first, over God?
Thou shall have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3
Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more. Judges 10:13
Quite apart from Obama's support for same-sex "marriage," they should be offended by his war on freedom of religion. Just because it is directed at the Catholic Church now doesn't mean it won't impact Protestants later.
yeah, it must be tough for them to decide skin color versus soul. After all, their skin color links them to this horrible president. But their endorsements of his pro-abortion stance, his death panels under Obamacare, his hidden muslim allegiance, and his support of communism (which is anti-God), eternally damns their souls. Tough choice (sarcasm).
Maybe they should start thinking about their ETERNAL futures instead of their immediate circumstances? And the same goes for the souls in their congregations. God has little patience with those who steer His sheep in wrong directions!
Yep...so several hundred ministers meet and tell their members not to vote for Obama. And...Mitt gains several hundred votes while their members vote for Obama anyways. Its a nice gesture but will have little impact on the general.
