Black Pastors Lay Down Gauntlet to Obama Over Same-Sex Marriage

Coalition Calls on Black Christians to Withhold Support Until President Grants Meeting

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." Owens said the group hasn't received a response from the White House and they are growing frustrated with each passing day. "We can't compete with the Hollywood folks who are raising the big bucks for the president," Owens said.

Why would a meeting make any difference? Why would the pastors expect this guy to tell them the truth if he said he would withdraw his enthusiastic support for sodomy?

This would be hilarious if it weren’t more likely an epitaph for our nation.

Moses met with Pharaoh several times, too.

What, the knockin’ off of babies wasn’t a huge first clue for any of them?

Moses met Pharaoh, knowing G-d was on his side. Those pastors met with Obama ,knowing that they will still vote for him, no matter what he does.

Why does it always have to be "black Christians", or whatever? Why not ask "Christians" to withhold their support? These people are so wrapped up in their skin shade that it comes before anything else. I feel sorry for them.

I am holding out hope that those who call themselves pastors will privately ask Obama to repent from the moral course he is setting for the nation. If Obama does not repent then I hope that if they are true Christ followers they would publicly break with Obama.

It’s either or. You cannot seve two masters. you will love the one and hate the other.

I think he would be more receptive to a group of black Imams.

Okay, so these black ministers who helped elect an effeminate, homosexual president because he is black are upset with him because he is promoting same sex marriage. When they get to the White House, they better steer clear of the 250 plus homosexuals Obama has hired.

This is all so much horse crap.
Any fool knows 90 + percent of blacks will vote for obammy.
Abortion, same sex marriage, homosexuality, it don’t matter one iota to blacks, they will vote for obammy even though his policies have helped to destroy the black community.
What is black yut unemployment under this marxist punk???

They are begging Obama for something to tell their people but he is ignoring them for Gay money.
