I heartily commend a group called The Coalition of African-American Pastors, for the public stand it is taking against President Obamas support for homosexual marriage, and for marriage as defined biblically.
The Rev. William Owens, Jr., head of the Mandate for Marriage initiative and son of the Rev. William Owens, Sr., the founder and president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP), told The Christian Post about the growing importance of the issue at an event on Tuesday.
Its only going to increase because the very core of America is founded upon Judeo-Christian beliefs. Thats debatable to some people but you cant do away with history, said Owens, Jr.
American Pastors: Gay Marriage Will Increase In Importance African
Reverend Owens also took an official solidarity stand with the embattled restaurant chain,Chick-fil-A . Pastor Owen compared the demonization of the fast food chain by proponents of same-sex marriage, with the treatment blacks encountered in the early days of the Civil Rights movement.
Some people are saying because of the position that Chick-fil-A has taken they dont want them in their cities, Rev. William Owens said at the National Press Club on Tuesday.
Its a disgrace. Its the same thing that happened when I was marching for civil rights, when they didnt want a black to come into their restaurant, they didnt want us staying in their hotels. Now theyre saying, because we take a Christian position, they dont want us in their cities.
Owens continued, Well, we wont take it. We will stand up and they will learn, they will learn that they cant do that to any people, by destroying religion, by destroying the family, we will stand up.
Pastor:Banning Chick-fil-A Same as Banning Blacks
Reverend Owens went further, and publically stated the obvious, but too often unmentioned due to political correctness,connecting homosexuality with the sexual abuse of children,
The leader of a group of black pastors opposed to gay marriage lashed out at President Barack Obama during a Tuesday appearance at the National Press Club. In his remarks, Rev. William Owens accused Obama of being unprofessional for ignoring him and insinuated that Obama had condoned child molestation by endorsing gay marriage.
For the homosexual community and for the president to bow to the money as Judas did for Jesus Christ is a disgrace and were ashamed, said Owens, the president and founder of the Coalition for African American Pastors.

This kind of stand is commendable and will no doubt expose the pastors to considerable reproach, as others have found when condemning any aspect of the Sodomite lifestyle. These men need our prayers and encouragement. Any move in the right direction is positive.
Perhaps the position this courageous group is taking for Biblical marriage, and the opposition they will now face, will lead them to an even more consistent stance. Or is the issue of homosexual marriage where the CAAP draws the line?
Obama may well seek to placate the Pastors, for he desperately needs the 96% support of the African-American electorate in an election year. Should Obama cave in to them, and flip-flop on Gay marriage, would that then make him acceptable again to these Christian pastors ?
How is it that the radically pro-abortion Obama was ever acceptable to any Christian, pastor or otherwise? Was he tolerable up until his infamously fake evolution to the pro same-sex position?
The African-American community in particular, that these pastors labor in, has been utterly ravaged by the pathologies of the Sexual revolution, such as fatherlessness, Divorce, co-habitation, and abortion, over the past four decades.
Abortion is genocide, killing African-Americans in the millions. Planned Parenthood,(What an anomaly!) was started by a known eugenicist,Margaret Sanger, who openly stated her desire to remove the weedsof humanity by sterilizing the less favored races.
At a March 1925 international birth control gathering in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the black and yellow peril. The man was not a Nazi or Klansman; he was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sangers American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood.
Sangers other colleagues included avowed and sophisticated racists. One, Lothrop Stoddard, was a Harvard graduate and the author of The Rising Tide of Color against White Supremacy. Stoddard was something of a Nazi enthusiast who described the eugenic practices of the Third Reich as scientific and humanitarian. And Dr. Harry Laughlin, another Sanger associate and board member for her group, spoke of purifying Americas human breeding stock and purging Americas bad strains. These strains included the shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of antisocial whites of the South.
Not to be outdone by her followers, Margaret Sanger spoke of sterilizing those she designated as unfit, a plan she said would be the salvation of American civilization.: And she also spike of those who were irresponsible and reckless, among whom she included those whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers. She further contended that there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped. That many Americans of African origin constituted a segment of Sanger considered unfit cannot be easily refuted.
The Truth About Margaret Sanger
Obama , as an Illinois State Senator, U.S. Senator and President has been the most adamant , aggressive promoter of Abortion Rights of any public officeholder. Should he accommodate the Black Pastors, (Why does there have to be Black Pastors, how about just Christian pastors?), and throw his Sodomite Lobby friends under the bus, would that make him acceptable again?
One good stand opens up the possibility of other further good stands. Standing for truth is a continuum. May God bless and help these pastors and congregations to see what the real issues are, and to go all the way in their defense of the gospel.
I’m getting a queasy feeling this is gonna get ugly before November.
Years ago there was a letter written by a female general from Texas last name Rice IIRC. She gave great details about the Republican party and African Americans. (One of the first female Generals)
Her letter was both informative and passionate, giving the reasons she voted Republican. Have often felt that if the churches would make the letter available to their congregations if would break the hold the Democrats have on the group.
Sorry I no longer have it on my computer. You might be able to find it.
We’ll just have to wait and hope that these black pastors put their money where their mouth is and vote for character instead of color.
