Unhappy with President Barack Obama‘s support of same-sex marriage, a group of African-American faith leaders have announced a campaign aimed at stripping 25 percent of the black vote that went to Obama in 2008 (95 percent).
The newly formed nonprofit group, God Said, will begin targeting voters in Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Florida with television and radio advertising, as well as a grassroots campaign to encourage people to consider the gospel when they enter the voting booth.
“The black community is among the most religious in America and we are offended that President Obama has announced his support of same-sex marriage, that the NAACP has blindly supported the secular views of the Democratic Party, and that their national platform plainly supports same-sex marriage,” said Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani of RagingElephants.org, and a God Said founder, in a statement. “I am confident that this message will be well received and acted upon on Election Day.”
The leadership of this group is full of famous names: Dr. Alveda King, Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani and the advisory board includes Stephen Broden whom we have written about on this blog. He was a Dallas pastor for 20 years and a wonderful conservative leader.
Here is a great video showing the anger of the pastors across the country who do not support Obama due to his support of same-sex marriage. This is a GREAT video, a must-see:
