    This morning on Fox News they featured a black reverend (I didn't catch his name because I hadn't had my coffee yet) who said he was deeply disturbed about Obama coming out for same-sex marriage. He said that many of his parish were thinking of not voting this year in protest. He said that many of them were highly upset about the way that Obama first floated a trial balloon on the subject by sending out the VP, then making a big production of supporting same-sex marriage.

    The good reverend went to great lengths so state the danger he felt this posed to the community. He said they would be in our schools teaching our children this new stance of the president. It would be a pervasive part of our society. However when asked if he felt it was right for black voters to sit this one out, he said that he would personally encourage his church members to vote. When asked if he would support Mitt Romney he said he didn't trust him. At the end of the interview, regardless of all of his reservations, he felt Obama was the better choice.

    It seemed to me that it didn't matter what Obama said or did, he was gonna support him. I find this extremely hypocritical. Christians should have principles and should base their choices on morality, not on race. If he feels Obama's political views are really so dangerous to the black community why does he still support him??

    I remember hearing the same kind of thing from some blacks before Obama was elected POTUS. I was talking to somebody and after listening to him for almost an hour brow-beat Obama, pointing out his flaws, I asked him if he would support John McCain. He said nope. He was voting for Obama. I asked why. He said because McCain is a warmonger.

    Okay.

    I think we all know what the real reason is blacks want to vote for Obama. It's an easy choice for them. If it comes down to an election between a black man and a white man they'll pick the black man no matter what because all they need is a reason supplied to them by the black man that the white man is untrustworthy, and Obama had done that. Bain Capital is that reason. It doesn't matter that Obama is in over his head and hasn't done his job since he lost the House last year. All he's done is campaign against Congress and "The Rich". Even Bill Clinton admitted yesterday that taxing them 100% wouldn't balance the budget.

    Rumors have been coming out of Democrat meetings that they're going to attempt to attach racial tones to everything the GOP or Mitt Romney does from here on out. They'll claim it's all a secret racist code that the right uses all of the time. They're going to rationalize just about anything they say or do and turn it into racism. Democrats are prepared to use the racecard repeatedly to make sure that blacks don't stay home.

    These pastors know that the government- sanctioned destruction of the family unit is the single most devastating blight on black America.

    They are standing up against Obama's call to encourage people to live like dogs.

    .

    Obama's not going to lose any black vote over this. Cafeteria Christians are Cafeteria Christians, skin color is irrelevant.

    I know some Christians that won't vote for Romney because he's a Mormon.

    Personally I think it's bigotry more than anything else.

    Most evangelicals don't support Obama because of his abortion policies.

    I think evangelicals are being left behind as far as politics is concerned. But black churches are much more political than white churches. Church and state are one in the same to many of them.

    What? People wont vote for Romney over ONE issue. For shame, how dare the blacks do that!

    Oh yeah, please stop with the "what black people think" bullshit, just ask a black person. But understanding isnt your "thing", demonization is right Saul?

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Amazing and incredibly laughable reading what people who don't know shit about black people have to say about us.

    Guess they're looking for God to win an election for them. :lol:

    Oh Lawd .. please make the dark people stay at home during the election. :lol:

    African-Americans have lots of reasons to be mad at Obama .. but homophobia ain't (eb) one of them. :0)

    Obama will not lose the black vote. Wouldn't matter if he was Satan himself, he knew this when he "came out". Nothing Obama does is by chance, it's all calculated by his team. He might loose a couple of Pastors that have strong beliefs on the matter but the congregations will hold their nose and slip in to the abyss of the private voting booth. ;)

    It's just a fact of life.

    Black's are going to vote for the black candidate.

    Obama could get arrested in a motel room with prostitutes and lines of cocaine on the table.

    And they would still vote for him!!

    Oops....... bad example.....something like that already happened to another black politician.

    Anyway, blacks vote based on skin color........ everything else is secondary. :doubt:
