Michael Steele Admits GOP Has Been Strategically Racist For 40+ Years, Hooray!

Remember when Ronald Reagan ended racism forever, the first time, by… just making fun of black people all the time? Sure you do.

Why doesn’t Michael Steele?

Here's a short quiz: Who said the following about his vote supporting a ban on employment discrimination based on sexual orientation?

The conservative GOP is often in slow motion when it comes to equality and fairness issues but they eventually do come around !

Homosexual perversion will always be unacceptable, and gay perverts will always live uncomfortable full of resentment as they try to justify their sickening behavior.

Sounds like a lot of homosexuals believe in the Republican path. Also 42% of homosexuals don't believe in pushing hard for gay marriage as they believe it hurts their cause... Hmmm those must be the homosexuals that believe in the Republican path. As it is!

Why are there so many marriage equality homosexuals behind straight Republican/conservative politicians ?

How does a GAY Jew get so many gay hating Bible Belt conservatives to vote for his GOP clients/candidates ?

Conservative gays seem to bother you and you hate them. I wonder if this means you're a closeted conservative? You demand acceptance and tolerance for your repulsive sick behavior yet hate gays who believe in the conservative path. I don't think these gays are fully given over to a reprobate mind like you are, and have hopes of going straight like so many gays do who claim homosexuality is a horrific addiction. Many are the testimonies of those who have left the tentacles of homosexual perversion, which is documented and spawned from some form of abuse. Homosexuality is a mental sickness and a confusion.

Black Pastors Group: Pride in Obama Has Turned to Shame

Friday, 06 Jul 2012 11:25 PM

By Todd Beamon

A coalition of African-American pastors is calling on blacks to boycott President Barack Obama and sign a petition demanding that the administration withdraw support for gay marriage.

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.

“By embracing gay marriage, President Obama is leading the country down an immoral path,” Rev. William Owens, president of the Memphis-based coalition, said on Friday, The Washington Examiner reports.“Some things are bigger than the next election.”

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.&#8232;&#8232;

His group also started a petition, 100000signatures4marriage.com .&#8232;&#8232;“We were once proud of President Obama, but our pride has turned to shame,” Owens said.

I'm so proud of our black brothers and sisters who hold the same disdain for homosexuality that our brothers and sisters in Uganda have, who have made sure that legislation is passed so that sodomy and homosexuality never sees the light of legality in the pride of their national history.

I love topix, they laugh at the truth.

Some people can't deal with the new media. They live in a bubble. Anyone who advocates not voting for someone because of their religion is an anti-religious bigot.

Several sources covered this story, but I think Truth Out, Raw Story, and the Huffington Post would rather talk about how Obama's stimulus package has forever changed the course of this country, these few morons see utopia achieved while the reality is, all this spending is heading us toward bankruptcy and an economic collapse. But on the way down the toilet they want us all to embrace the perversion of gay marriage, thinking why not we're going over the cliff anyway?

That violates the 14th Amendment. You are against equality, that's unAmerican.

I refuse to vote for someone who believes my skin color is a curse from god. If that makes me an anti-religious bigot, so be it.
