KING: Blacks Should Vote God’s Way — Against Obama Conscience, Not Skin Color, Must Prevail C By Alveda King October 17, 2012

Earlier this year, President Obama became the first president in American history to openly advocate for homosexual “marriage,” explicitly reversing his position from four years ago, when, at a forum in Saddleback Church in California, he stated his support for traditional marriage, saying that it was the biblical view he held.

I, along with many others in the black community, was very disturbed. I wish I could say I was shocked, but I never believed his word at Saddleback Church. I had followed his history and record. I knew he was always pro-abortion and for homosexual “marriage,” even though the Bible is clear about the dangers of such practices. Sometimes politicians say what is convenient at a certain time, and I think that’s why he originally stated his support for traditional marriage — it may be the reason he reversed his position as well.

In 2008, the black community as a whole voted almost as a single block for Mr. Obama. Blacks also overwhelmingly approved Proposition 8 in California, which banned homosexual “marriage” in favor of natural marriage during the same election. Conservative morals and values run deep in the black community. In the current election, we need to remember those roots when we go to the polls.

This could lower the percentage of blacks voting for Obama, possibly to about 94%.

She needs to be in ads run 24/7 on all shows that blacks are likely to watch. They must understand that a vote for Obama is a vote against Jesus.

“They must understand that a vote for Obama is a vote against Jesus.”

The tares amongst the wheat.

We shall see what is left standing after the winnowing is done.

This trial is not just for ‘black Christians’, it is for all Christians.

True Salamander, but I am in a position to talk to quite a few black folks who are genuinely in the dark as to who Obama is. They just haven’t heard the facts. Many might well vote against him given the right information.

We live in a blessed age where information is there, free for the taking, should any seek it.

Even if they have no computer, there are very few who have no TV or radio.

[and we’ve had God’s own word for over 2000 years]

I have a hard time excusing ignorance.

However, I hope you will supply them with the information they have not sought for themselves.

Good luck and God bless.

That article’s over 2 years old.

Apparently it didn’t go through.
