Coalition of Black Pastors Furious with Obama Over His Stand On Gay Marriage and Wanting To Ban Chick-Fil-A

Coalition of Black Pastors Furious with Obama Over His Stand On Gay Marriage and Wanting To Ban Chick-Fil-A

The President of the Coalition of African-American Pastors says supporters of traditional marriage are facing the same discrimination that blacks faced during the civil rights movement.

“Some people are saying because of the position that Chick-fil-A has taken - they don’t want them in their cities,” Rev. William Owens said at the National Press Club on Tuesday.

“It’s a disgrace. It’s the same thing that happened when I was marching for civil rights, when they didn’t want a black to come into their restaurant, they didn’t want us staying in their hotels. Now they’re saying, because we take a Christian position, they don’t want us in their cities."
Owens continued, “Well, we won’t take it. We will stand up and they will learn, they will learn that they can’t do that to any people, by destroying religion, by destroying the family, we will stand up.”

CAAP held the conference to announce it’s “Mandate for Marriage” campaign, a nationwide effort to urge black voters to refrain from supporting President Barack Obama unless he retracts his support for gay marriage.

The restaurant chain Chick-fil-A became a focal point in the gay marriage debate after company president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that the company was "guilty as charged" for backing "the biblical definition of a family.”

AT he National Press Club in Washington DC, a group of Black clergy spoke out in opposition to Obama's stance on same sex marriage. They are launching a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about the issue and are calling on Black Americans to withdraw their support from BHO ( Barack Hussein Obama) . Their mission is to save the family.

BHO had previously announced his support of gay marriage and the issue will part of the Democratic Platform come convention time.

Rev. William Owens, President and Founder of the Coalition of African-American Pastors was very vocal and harsh words for BHO. The pastors had requested a meeting with Obama and Holder to discuss the issue of gay marriage. Obama has not responded in any fashion. Obama has ignored the Black community and is taking them for granted because he [Obama] feels they are in his pocket.

He goes on to talk about all the issues facing the Black community including education, high crime in the black community and high unemployment in the Black community. Instead Obama and the Left has chosen a path that involves the Liberal Hollywood elite, Gay and Lesbians and Big Money Donors while ignoring the Black Community that helped Obama ride to victory in 2008.

He goes on to rip the President, criticizing him for bowing to Big Money. He is concerned about the destruction of family and religion. He is sharply critical of Blacks giving the President a free pass because he [Obama] is black.

He wants BHO to admit he made a mistake with regards to his support of gay marriage.


Wild Thing's comment...............

They are truly upset, and for Obama to ignore them is making them even more upset. These people have been used by Obama and actually if they wake up completely they have been used by the entire democrat party.

Homosexuality and the marriage of Homosexuals has been been scorned by every nation and religion for thousands of years. It's only been about the past 25 years that Homosexuality has become an "approved" lifestyle. Now there are sitcoms on TV showing Homosexuality as normal. Anyone who speaks the truth of Homosexuality as being a perversion of God and nature is castigated as a Homophobe and bigot. A sexual perversion is now considered normal and those who oppose this perversion are considered abnormal.

These Black clergymen calling for Blacks to not support obama just because he is (half)Black is a faint light in the darkness. I hope this call has some effect. It is a plus even if a large number of Blacks just don't vote. Of course all of the "community activists" will be pushing, urging, demanding that Blacks vote and vote for obama. Will be interesting to see how this plays out in Nov. I still expect obama to get 90+% of the Black vote. Maybe the turnout will be much lower than 2008.
