At the 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. 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.
Question to ponder..... are liberals going to scream racism at Reverend Owens now?
