It's long been no secret to conservatives that the nation's "First Gay President", Barack Obama, has long taken blacks for granted during his term, despite receiving an overwhelming 95% of their support in the 2008 Presidential election. Obama, who gone out of his way to execute "rights" for illegal immigrants and homosexuals in this country time and time again during the past 3 years, has done little for his biggest fans, so much so that black people's socio-economic position has declined more so than any other voting bloc since he took office. And now, what with Obama's recent support of the unGodly, white, liberal elite's "gay marriage" initiative, some black folks in this country are not only taking on Obama's ignorance of their specific needs, but letting the world know why Black folks should not vote for Obama again in 2012:
A group of conservative black pastors are responding to President Barack Obama’s support of same-sex marriage with what they say will be a national campaign aimed at rallying black Americans to rethink their overwhelming support of the President, though the group’s leader is offering few specifics about the effort.RELATED: Black Pastors Challenge NAACP’s Support for Same-sex Marriage
The Rev. Williams Owens, who is president and founder of the Coalition of African-Americans Pastors and the leader of the campaign, has highlighted opposition to same-sex marriage among African-Americans. He calls this campaign “an effort to save the family.”
“The time has come for a broad-based assault against the powers that be that want to change our culture to one of men marrying men and women marrying women,” said Owens, in an interview Tuesday after the launch event at the National Press Club. “I am ashamed that the first black president chose this road, a disgraceful road.”
At the press conference, Owens was joined by five other black regional pastors and said there were 3,742 African-American pastors on board for the anti-Obama campaign.
When asked at the press conference for specifics about the campaign – funding, planned events and goals – Owens said only that the group’s first fundraiser will be on August 16 in Memphis, Tennessee. But Owens insisted that “we are going to go nationwide with our agenda just like the president has gone to Hollywood.”
In May, Obama announced on ABC News that he thought “same sex couples should be able to get married." The president had previously said that he opposed gay marriage, but said in May that his views were personal and did not represent a policy change.
In a fiery Tuesday press conference at the press club, Owens said Obama was taking the black vote for granted and decried the idea of similarities between the gay rights movement and the civil rights movement, an assertion made by the NAACP following Obama’s same-sex marriage support.
