Pastor: Black Christians should ‘withhold support’ for Obama over gay marriage

July 6, 2012 at 12:26 pm

After failing to receive a response to their request to meet with President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss the administration’s support for same-sex marriage, the Coalition of African-American Pastors is now calling on other black Christians to withhold support for Obama’s re-election.

“By embracing gay marriage, President Obama is leading the country down an immoral path,” said Rev. William Owens, the president of CAAP, in a statement. “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.”

CAPP’s letter to Obama and Holder expressed their disappointment.

“President Obama is the fulfillment of our dreams for our sons,” they wrote. “And he has broken our hearts by using his power and position to endorse as a civil right something that is simply wrong… Some things are bigger than the next election.”
