NAACP backs gay marriage
By DONOVAN SLACK | 5/19/12 5:35 PM EDT
CAMP DAVID The board of the NAACP, one of the nations oldest and largest African American advocacy organizations, has passed a resolution supporting gay marriage in the wake of President Obamas public endorsement of same-sex unions.
The mission of the NAACP has always been to ensure the political, social and economic equality of all people, board chair Roslyn M. Brock said in a statement following passage of the resolution on Saturday. We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law.
The chairman emeritus, Julian Bond, had already pledged his support earlier this week as part of a coalition of black leaders trying to tamp down speculation that Obamas support of gay marriage would divide the black community.
The resolution and statement Saturday specifically noted that the group supports civil marriage for same sex couples, while respecting religious freedom -- something the president also mentioned when announcing his stance.
Civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous said in the statement. The NAACPs support for marriage equality is deeply rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and equal protection of all people.
The group has taken public stances against discrimination based on sexual orientation in the past. The NAACP opposed Proposition 8 in California, the federal Defense of Marriage Act, and more recently, Amendment 1 in North Carolina.
Here is the full resolution released Saturday:

A lot of blacks will drop out of the NAACP, like the senior citizens are dumping the AARP...
I have the same post 4 times in a row. Sorry about that. What causes that?
Think of the new names they can come up with:
As Bob Hope would say: “Grrrrr....”
So issue a statement that you should allowed to multiple people regardless of sex.
Yes, it sheds no light, but draws into darkness.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Understand this, the waters, the Beast of Revelations rises from, are the nations, people. Humanism is the doctrine of darkness. The Beast is Socialism that panders to the waters and amplifies the flesh, bringing into bondage the souls that it deceives.
Light into darkness, darkness into Light.
God's Laws into pagan laws...i.e., sharia.
A divorce, if you will, from the Judeo/Christian foundational laws at the origins of this country to....”The whole of the law is do what thou wilt.”
The Great Whore???? You'll have to ask.
Right is wrong and wrong is right, light is darkness and darkness light, law is evil and evil is law.
“Okay, let me see if I have all this straight. Bill Clinton, a white Southerner, was the first black president. Obama, an apparently straight guy, is the first gay president. George Zimmerman, a Hispanic, is a white guy. Elizabeth Warren, the whitest white woman anybody ever saw, is an Injun.
Andrew Sullivan, a liberal, considers himself the last true conservative. The Democrat Socialists, left-wingers to a fault, consider themselves centrist or moderate, and Mitt Romney, who is a liberal, is a right-wing extremist. Of course, Mittens calls himself a severe conservative, although nobody really believes it. Not even the Democrat Socialists.”
National Association for the Advancement of Copulating People
It’s not the copulation it’s the kind of it that matters.
And Democrats and the broadcast chattering class get away with this kind of self contradictory B.S. day and night and they expect America simply to swallow it — moralizers who have lost all connection with logic and reason or even consistency, let alone time honored tradition. America hasn’t gone immoral so much as it has embraced a warped morality.
Post it, would you?
You mean outside of Biblical marriage, i.e. fornication?
I got it the first time.
Is there an alternative to the NAACP like there is for AARP?
Well that, and the sodomic sort. But I think the latter is what the nat’l ass’n for the advancement of cr*p-pushers was getting at here.
I will do that tomorrow.
