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 ?

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?

Why is Black unemployment the highest its ever been? Is that a curse or a blessing?

Why is Black on Black murder the highest its ever been? Is that a curse or a blessing?

Why is Black drug abuse the highest its ever been? Is that a curse or a blessing?

Why is Black education efficiency the highest its ever been? Is that a curse or a blessing?

Why I believe Blacks are not a curse is because the majority of them are against gay marriage as they claim homosexuality is not a racial issue, but rather a moral issue.

Obama is a curse but not because he is black, he is a curse because he is a liberal.

Dishonoring Texas
Monday, June 13, 2005
THE DAY TEXAS Gov. Rick Perry (R) ceremonially signed a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as an exclusively heterosexual matter, he may not have been intending to spit in the faces of countless men and women fighting for their country in Iraq. But that is what he did. Mr. Perry was asked by a reporter what he had to say "to gays and lesbians who are serving in the military right now in Iraq who are going to come back to Texas and may not be entitled to the same rights as the rest of us?" Mr. Perry responded that "Texans have made a decision about marriage, and if there is some other state that has a more lenient view than Texas, then maybe that's a better place for them to live."
In some sense, the governor was merely stating a fact: Texas law forbids same-sex marriage, so a returning veteran who wants state recognition for a lifelong relationship does have to go elsewhere. But the governor was doing more than describing a law that treats one class of people differently from all others; he was wallowing in it.
Foes of same-sex marriage often emphasize that they have nothing against gays and lesbians but are merely trying to protect the sanctity of a traditional institution. Some are certainly sincere in this protestation. But in much of the "defense of marriage" world, the rhetoric of tolerance is paper-thin. Mr. Perry, a veteran himself, did not take the trouble to honor the service of gay people now in harm's way or mention that they were welcome in Texas. He didn't mention the need to respect different life choices or note that same-sex couples might have deeply committed relationships. His message was simple: If you don't like it, leave. It's a message unworthy of the governor of any state.

“It’s the ones that holler loudest about gays sinning and going to hell that are hiding their own sin,” Luke said.
