    Times 247 | Black pastors threaten Obama over gay marriage

    The Coalition of African American Pastors demanded on Monday that President Obama meet with the group to address his stance on same-sex marriage.So far, the White House has refused to acknowledge the group's request but leaders say they plan to "turn up the heat" by asking black Christians to sit on the sidelines for the time being."We have requested a meeting with President Obama and until he meets with us, we are going to ask black Christians to withhold their support until he personally hears our concerns," the group's spokesperson, the Rev. Bill Owens, told The Christian Post on Tuesday after Monday's press conference in Nashville."More than anything, this is an issue of biblical principles and President Obama is carrying our nation down a dangerous road. Many African Americans were once proud of our president but now many are ashamed of his actions."

    Shame on them and their "equal rights are only for us" stance. You can find slavery in the Bible, including an admonishment by Paul for slaves to obey their masters.

    Colossians 3:22(KJV)

    Slaves, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.

    Who do you mean by "you guys" and make up their minds on what exactly? Gay marriage? The way Obama has handled it? The way pastors are responding toward him negatively over it?

    What do you mean?


    I just saw a pastor on the news encouraging his church to not go vote for obama this year over the gay marriage thing...he didn't say to vote for Romney he just said "Dont go vote for obama" This pastor, upon first glance, would appear to be a black american.
