NAACP backs gay marriage

By DONOVAN SLACK | 5/19/12 5:35 PM EDT

CAMP DAVID – The board of the NAACP, one of the nation’s oldest and largest African American advocacy organizations, has passed a resolution supporting gay marriage in the wake of President Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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 NAACP’s 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 striking number of FReepers don't know that it's "martial law" -- not "marshal(l)".

Gee I'm sure a number of FReepers are beholden to you for pointing that out.

What the (BLEEP) is wrong with these slobering Democrat loving idiots?

Since when is hetrosexual marriage anything but a righteous tool FOR THE CHILDREN???

Here I thought EVERYTHING in America was 'for the children!!!" Homosexual marriage is not in the long-term interest of the children and short-term is certainly not!!!

The color white is the presence of all colors of the spectrum. Black does not reflect any color wave length. The victims are running the asylum and those that built the asylum are rapidly becoming disenfranchised in so many ways!!!

At least that's my opinion and my view of the situation. Why do you think they call it a "black hole?" No light spectrum of any color can escape!!!

I do not take this view lightly as their "in my face" is getting "way over the top!!!" Oriental nations such as China, Japan, Korea and even some in Indonesia are obsessed with saving face and not "losing face" but we are not even supposed to utter a word about what's being shoved in out face!!!

I do it out of high regard for FReepers.

It's all in whether you want to spell it right or reveal your ignorance.

If you want to spell it "marshall", eroding your credibility, you're welcome to do so.

Well, if your allegory is in reference to humanism using socialism as the “black hole” mechanism that absorbs all causes against God under its banner......then yes, I agree with you.

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.”

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.

Sir,

I am a conservative and an Independent.

I'm all for the Tea Party being a separate third party that would then vet out alliances from both established parties with those that are disenfranchised with the socialism found in either political direction.

Forging the alliance by voting in unity against that which is immoral and unconstitutional. I see no hope in reeling in the Republican party from socialism from within the party. I see external, i.e. Tea Party/third, pressure as a means to a truly conservative end. IMHO. Puckster

The GOP has sub-parties in it, as would still the Democrats if they weren’t so naziesquely regimented. The practical politics seems to be for Tea Parties to try to establish presence and followings in the GOP rather than being spoilers.

It's part of the conspiracy to undermine the strength of America. The family, as the nucleus of the nation, is being deconstructed by political saboteurs.

“naziesquely”

Duly noted....I’m looking that up as I post.

“Plutocratic fascist naziesquely orwellian roveianlly infanticidal murderous lying thieving socialists”

It’s a copy and paste....beyond my own capabilities...but, it seems to sum up socialism, right or left.

It is a fact that Homosexual behavior is widely accepted in the Black community. Why?

25% of Black males have been incarcerated. Most inmates in US jails are Black. Homosexual relations are widespread in prison.

Wearing pants pulled down below the waist is popular in the Black community. Why? Because in prison, that is a sign that you are looking for Gay sex.

Finally, most Black Rap and Hip-Hop "Stars" are Homosexual.

Given the percentage of blacks in the prison population and the sodomite lifestyle that goes on in prison, this makes perfect sense.

So why did they have to wait until after obama said he supported it before they made a resolution?

English is great in how you can tag on suffixes. Nazi, Naziesque, Naziesquely. Noun, adjective, adverb. But it has to happen in a logical order: Nazily doesn’t make sense.

The irony is that the pro-abortion member of NOW tend to be lesbos, who never have to worry about an unwanted pregnancy.

Unless they decide to get artificially inseminated so they experience abortions without having sexual relations with a man. That wouldn’t surprise me in the least.
