Will Gay Marriage Threaten Black Support for Obama?


Pages: 1 2

The Heritage Foundation compared families on welfare versus families eligible for welfare but that, for one reason or another, refused to take it. The results were startling. Heritage reported: “Young women raised in families dependent on welfare are two to three times more likely to drop out and fail to graduate from high school than are young women of similar race and socioeconomic background not raised on welfare.

Similarly, single mothers raised as children in families receiving welfare remain on AFDC longer as adult parents than do single mothers not raised in welfare families, even when all other social and economic variables are held constant.”

The Democratic Party is the party of Roe v. Wade, even though blacks are more pro-life than whites. Former President Jimmy Carter, a religious man who called himself “twice born,” thought the Democratic Party made a tactical and moral error by embracing abortion-on-demand as a federal right guaranteed by the Constitution: “I never have believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions, and that was one of the problems I had when I was president, having to uphold Roe v. Wade. … But except for the times when a mother’s life is in danger or when a pregnancy is caused by rape or incest, I would certainly not and never have approved any abortions. … My position on abortion … is to minimize the need or requirement for abortion and limit it only to women whose (lives) are in danger or who are pregnant as a result of rape or incest. I think if the Democratic Party would adopt that policy, that would be acceptable to a lot of people who are now estranged from our party because of the abortion issue.”

The Democratic Party is the party of tax-the-rich. Never mind that Democratic Party icon President John Kennedy sounded downright trickle-downish when he said: “It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low — and the soundest way to raise revenues in the long run is to cut rates now. The experience of a number of European countries has borne this out. This country’s own experience with tax reductions in 1954 has borne this out, and the reason is that only full employment can balance the budget — and tax reduction can pave the way to full employment. The purpose of cutting taxes now is not to incur a budgetary deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous expanding economy which will bring a budgetary surplus.”

The Democratic Party is the party of minimum wage. Nobel Laureate economist Milton Friedman said, “We regard the minimum wage as one of the most, if not the most, anti-black laws on the statute books.”

For all these reasons, having nothing to do with gay marriage, black churches should have broken with the Democratic Party long ago.

Better late than never.

    VOTE Obama! – It's Easier Than Working.

  • harrylies

    Obama thinks it's time for America, like South Africa and Canada, to move on and embrace equal rights for all its' citizens. Malcolm X is a prefect illustration that not all bigots are white. Ironically, he was killed by Black Muslems when he left their nuthouse.

    If black churches want to sound like the worst of the white churches and swim in hate, well, we know why so many young people reject churches. Win or lose, Obama is not on his knees to bigots.

      Surely, We Must Love All Mankind. But We Cannot Love Everything They Do. There Is A Difference Between Right-And-Wrong. Your Father Loved Cain. But Obviously, He Could Not Love What Cain Did. You Are Your Brother's Keeper. Therefore, You Must Be Prepared To Tell Your Brother (or sister) When They Are Doing Wrong. Homosexuality, Is Anti God & Humanity.

  • Ron

    The fact that black churches support the party of abortion,Hollywood,immorality, and anti-Christian bigotry is amazing. If I were a pro-traditional values black,I would not go to a black church.

  • guest

    He "forgot" many black people attend a church. He is running with a dangerous pack, and has a tin ear.
    The blacks call him a long legged Mac Daddy. Oh well, he has the communist, left and muslim vote.

    He is busy writing muslims into American history, himself into history as a great leader, and remember he received a Nobel peace prize for being the first black president. Should have been an America in pieces booby prize. The Saudis are still laughing about getting him elected. We are such a joke to these 7th century barbarians.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    America oh how great your fall, once a bastion of moral integrity and uprght people, now swimming
    in the malaise of degeneracy which predicated the decline and in some instances the obliteration
    of former societies in the history of man. Todays people laugh at the idea of spiritual evil and the
    embodiment of such beings as Lucifer and the fallen angels of Scripture, yet we see a malaise
    and disgusting devolution of life all about and the evaporation of Amerca as once known. All
    that is missing in our duplicitous ontology is Obama with horns, tail and red suit……….William

    • trueconservative

      Yes America was SUCH a bastion of moral integrity–enslavement of human beings, spousal and child abuse with impunity, exploitation of labor,rampant unchecked prostitution(even children) and mass drug addiction to opiates and cocaine,forced labor of poor people,disenfranchisement of un-propertied citizens,mass political corruption and ethnic cleansing of native population—–but I guess all that was OK since people knew their Bible and went to church………

      • WilliamJamesWard

        These things do happen but not in Church where people are called to not be as those who do
        evil. Don't you know that many are called but few are chosen and that means everyone has a
        chance to step up above the evil life contains. You skewer the truth of evil in America by
        presenting it as socially prevalent during all of its history, our laws prohibit what you depict
        and no one ever said man in America was perfect but personally I have lived in communities
        withouit crime, safely and where evil poked up it's head it was dealt with, not as today
        where it is in the ascendancy. In my career in law enforcement, my brothers, fathers,
        grandfathers on back to the Revolution we demanded better of people and Biblicle
        standards have been upheld as in the Ten Commandments as our founding guide.
        It is from Churches and Synogogues, the Judeo-Christian ethic that Amrica has been
        made great, tollerance of a little wrong here and there has brought about great defect
        in America as exemplified by you attitude…………………………..William

          Water off a ducks back my friend. These evil leftie hacks refuse to see and judge anything in context or fairness.
          What's so clear and true to us is invisible to their brainwashed minds devoid of historical truth.
          This in itself is more evidence of the sad moral and soon to be physical destruction of a once great culture.
          Brings tears to my soul.

      • cjk

        Yes it was in spite of it's faults, some of which you've listed without context. If you truly knew history of the entire world and of all fallen mankind, then even a leftie hack such as yourself would realize the truth, but you won't.

  • davarino

    There is plenty of ammo to use on O. I just hope the reason Mitt and the repubs arent pulling the trigger is because they are waiting to see the whites of their eyes, and not because they dont want to sink to their level. Screw that fairness crap and being nice, this is our country we are fighting for and we cannot give it to the marauding hordes.

  • Adheeb

    The influence of the church within the black community is way over-rated. Yes, the church serves as a focal point for black people but the influence it has with regard ethics and morality are minimal. That's why although the black population is about 15% of our soceity, far more than 50% of prison inmates are black.

    In the 2008 election more than 90% of black voters, voted for Mr. Obama. That isn't going to change in the next election. Obama knows he has the black vote locked in, so his focus is to win other specialty groups. The fact is blacks are the most racist group we have in America and as such are the most easily manipulated. Give 'em a bone and they'll come home.

  • lugnut

    Adheeb—I think your right!

  • marios

    Black leaders like Al Sharpton, Jessi Jackson … want their community remain violent, sitiing on welfare, depended on Goverment, be racists, etc. They make a living keep and maintain them in such state.
    Democraps use them playing racial card but don't predict that it could be one time go against them as just to be white. Dangerous game. Black churches are different. Unfortunately majority play the same racial game.
    Blach leaders don't want qual rights but only advantages and first of all for themselves. That game denegrate our country. This kind of game was played by communists in socialistic countries. Socialism failed everywhere. We should not make such a fatal mistake and allow to transform this country to socialistic one.
    BHO is one tern Pres. It is only solution.

  • Kendrick1

    “Even if Obama were in a crowd of people and he took a knife to a pregnant woman and cut the baby right out of her womb, most black Christians would blame the mother!”

  • cjk

    The Black Church at large has already sold it's soul to Satan over race. Obama backed letting abortion surviving infants being left to die alone while an Illinois state senator, yet just about all the Black Churches supported and support him fanatically.
    Now they're going to stand up against him over his embrace of sexual perversions?
    If they do that now then my heart tells me that there's something even more despicable at play.

    Black churches are not uniform. Positions on gay marriage seem to be shifting. http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2012/04/16/i

  • wctaqiyya

    You answered your own question sir. Just like yesterday, it is the continuing expectation for free goodies that will ensure the near unanimity of black support for Obama. Obama keeps saying he wants to achieve equality of outcomes. Unfortunately, many people believe he can deliver it. It bothers the black community not a bit that equality of result means taking from the whites. The issue of gay marriage does nothing to disturb the far more powerful and appealing drumbeat against crackers the black community hears overtly from the pulpit, from OWS and scarcely between the lines from the Democrat party and dear leader Obama. It is a well entrenched certainty. Just ask the 'reverend' Sharpton how well the white devil theme feathers his nest. Surely, whether Obama is re-elected or loses, we will see fires in the cities come winter time.

  • jasper mcmillan

    It all comes down to the Word of God. Nothing else matters. Unfortunately, the Bible and its great truths have been twisted out of context in order to please Homosexuals. Politicians, Judges and even many so-called Preachers have been bullied and intimidated into supporting the Gay agenda including same sex marriage and it will be their downfall. Even though many will deny it, history has demonstrated that at some point, God simply says "enough" and turns his back on a society that is determined and hell-bent on doing whatever it wants to do regardless of his desires. America stands at the edge of the Abyss and there's a terrible price that will be paid if she doesn't turn back.

    • wctaqiyya

      Now that you mention it, there is something familiar about the LGBT political agenda. Just as the perverts today demand equal consideration under the law, in school, church and workplace; the denizens of Sodom felt it was their right to demand carnal hindquarter knowledge of Lot's guests. They have rights, they say. They want everybody to accept their lifestyle and they want the government to enforce compliance. Well, not unexpectedly, I think I recently caught the aroma of brimstone on the breeze.

  • lightshine

    all the white folks who have so much to say about the Black church and Black people can get bent.
    you racist, soulless people do not even know what morality is.
    why are you all so damned obsessed with what Black people do?
    Homosexuality is am abomination and men having sex with men is a Public Health NIGHTMARE.
    It is being pushed by white homosexuals –greco- roman perversion, targeted at the Black community. Abortion is being pushed by white "feminists" for(black) population control and to further degrade Black families.
    Obama is a zionist invention.
    I am a Black woman of faith and a Dem voter (40) yrs.. I wil lnot vote for him or any other candidate who supports the homosexual agenda.

    no exception,.
