NOM-Allied Pastor Calls Obama 'Judas' for 'Pandering' to Gay Community on Marriage: VIDEO

Owens

The Washington Post says that Black churches "are split" over gay marriage and Obama:

Overall, African-Americans remain one of the groups most opposed to gay marriage: 51 percent are opposed, while 40 percent support it, according to a recent poll by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. That support, however, has edged up from 26 percent just four years ago. Among black Protestants, opposition is slightly higher, at 54 percent.

Pew researchers said Obama’s support hasn’t noticeably shifted opinion in either direction, but some smaller groups are seeking to galvanize lingering black skepticism over gay marriage to make it a wedge issue for African-American voters this November.

“I would hope that the president would become wise, come to his senses and know that he has made a mistake,” said the Rev. William Owens, president of the fledgling Coalition of African-American Pastors, at a recent National Press Club news conference.

His group is circulating an online petition to ask Obama to “repudiate his assertion that gay marriage is a civil right.”

The Christian Broadcasting Network gave the National Press Club press conference by the anti-gay Coalition of African-American Pastors and Rev. William Owens a segment earlier this week, highlighting Owens' proclamation that Obama is a 'Judas' for pandering to the gay community.

"And for the President to bow to the money as Judas did for Jesus Christ, is a disgrace, and we are ashamed."

NOTE: You may remember the video the pastors released in July, repeating many of these accusations.

  1. Astounded, simply astounded am I because of a trend running throughout this string of comments. Evidently, just J Edgar Hoover infiltrated innumerable organizations he deemed unAmerican, it appears obvious that a whole lot of right wing Christian fundamentalists are zeroed in on this website to preach to the "pagan" homos. Many of the comments preceding mine are so transparently evidence that wacko Christians see free speech amongst LGBT folks as threatening to their self-perceived vital control of American opinion that they "lower" themselves in the service of their ignorantly understood "Jesus" to troll gay websites in order to inject irrational nonsense into civil discourse. Beware of being lured into engaging with these Whores of Babylon (to emulate an age-old Christianist shibboleth) so as to render them legitimate in any way to a "democratic" debate in good conscience. The far right wing Christian Dominionists are truly "shape-shifters" who will lie outright in order to provoke rationally based commenters into a futile parry and thrust headed nowhere but a futile dead end where so-called "faith" declares victory by means of its extremely absurd and baseless claims about a magic afterlife in the clouds where gays will be sent to Hell for ETERNITY to endlessly twist and turn while cast upon brimstone and fire. That's what they think you are worthy of if gay. Why would you ever even debate with these crazies when their fantastical view of a non-existant afterlife is you writhing in pain while they and their Jesus remain aloof amidst the clouds to your suffering? How hateful can one belief be!

  3. The very race that was subjected to cruel discrimination and abject inequality is now projecting such sentiments to another minority group. Is this irony?

  4. SINCE Chick-fil-A WON, MAYBE, THE LIBERAL MEDIA CAN NO LONGER DENY Barack Hussein Obama IS HOMOSEXUAL AND HAS BEEN HAVING SEX WITH MALES IN CHICAGO. THE KENYAN IS A FAKE AND A FREAK. TELL THE TRUTH, LIBERALS.

    IF "gay" MARRIAGE DOES NOT PASS, Y'ALL SHOULD "OUT" THE PRETENDER ON PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE OUT OF ANGER.
