Black Pastors Group: Pride in Obama Has Turned to Shame
The group, the 1,300-member Coalition of African-American Pastors, says it was snubbed by Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder when it demanded a meeting to discuss same-sex unions. The group had requested the meeting last month.
The pastors are angered with Obama’s recent endorsement of gay marriage. But the president has not suggested that he would back federal legislation permitting same-sex marriage.
The coalition supports African-American pastors who believe marriage should be between a man and a woman.
“The black church has always been the conscience of America, and today we are calling on black pastors and black Christians to withhold support from President Obama until he corrects course,” Owens said.
His group also started a petition, 100000signatures4marriage.com. “We were once proud of President Obama, but our pride has turned to shame,” Owens said.
