Why aren’t these “heart-broken” pastors heart-broken over the Presidents radical PRO-ABORTION stance? Isn’t stopping the mass-murder of innocent babies far more important than a gay marriage issue?
Who cares if they call him ” THE FIRST GAY PRESIDENT” GOD will handle that. Every knee will bend – every toungue will confess.
Care more about SAVING the unborn!
Where were all these “heart-broken” black pastors when they saw how Obama was publicly & gleefully celebrating ROE VS WADE? The ‘ROE VS WADE’ ruling has caused the slaughter/ brutal murder of at least 54 MILLION of the most innocent beings on the planet.
How come all these “heart-broken” pastors aren’t horrified about this?
Why didn’t these concerned “men-of-God” denounce him over his radical pro-abortion position/agenda? How could ANY Christian have ever supported such a radical PRO-ABORTION person???
How could they ever have supported him – knowing his demonic stance on abortion?
Obama is not shy about his stance on abortion. They actually call him the “ABORTION-PRESIDENT.” His stance his entire political career on abortion is beyond demonic. His voting record and public support of abortion/murder is an abomination.
Why didn’t any of these “influential” heart-broken black pastors stand against him then??? What’s more important than stopping the murder of children? The color of your skin?
I added an article at the bottom of this post to familiarize yourself with the presidents demonic stance. As a matter of fact he is the MOST RADICAL PRO-ABORTION President this nation has ever had.
Standing against the murder of the unborn and voting PRO-LIFE is far more important than any gay marriage issue.
Please… pray that next time everyone VOTES PRO-LIFE !!! Nothing is more important.
‘Heart-Broken’ Black Pastors Want to Meet Obama
Over Gay Marriage
Influential African-American pastors have requested Attorney
General Eric Holder to grant them a meeting with President Barack
Obama, saying he broke their hearts by endorsing gay marriage –
“something that is simply wrong” – as a civil right.

“We pray for the President … President Obama is the fulfillment of our dreams for our sons — and he has broken our hearts by using his power and position to endorse as a civil right something that is simply wrong,” the Rev. William Owens, founder and president of the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP), wrote in a letter to Holder late Thursday.
The coalition, which comprises of leaders of the black church and civil rights leaders who marched with the Rev. Martin Luther King, decided to seek a meeting with Obama after Holder announced he would speak with 350 black pastors to inform them of their rights in speaking for the president without violating their 501(c)3 status.
Organizations with 501(c)3 status are not allowed to be involved in fundraising, political campaigning or lobbying.
“I would pray you have enough residual respect for this group of clergy, to agree to meet with us and other national leaders to discuss our concerns over your and President Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage as a civil right,” Owens said in the letter, signed by numerous black pastors. “Some things are bigger than the next election.”
A day after voters in North Carolina approved a constitutional ban on gay marriage and civil unions by a large margin, Obama announced May 9 that he supports legalizing same-sex marriage. In response to Obama’s stance, the CAAP started gathering signatures on a marriage pledge – signed by over 1,000 African-American clergy and Christians thus far.
“If President Obama changed his mind, let him consider changing it again,” Owens said.
Referring to a May 17 press conference against Obama’s support for gay marriage in Memphis, Tenn., the CAAP president quoted civil rights activist Elder Morris as saying, “We marched so we wouldn’t have to sit in the back of the bus, so our children could go to the same schools, so we could go to the zoo every day.” Owens then wrote, “That’s what it looks and feels like when genuine civil rights are violated. I can promise you personally, as an organizer of the civil rights movement in Nashville, I did not march one inch, one foot, one yard for same-sex marriage.”
The coalition’s letter also refers to the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who laid down the markers for how one can distinguish a genuinely unjust law, a law that violates civil rights: “How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a manmade code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.”
Owens, the coalition’s elder statesman and organizer, earlier said it was time to turn the tide against the “‘hijacking’ of the civil rights movement.”
Obama Celebrates Roe vs. Wade Decision, 54 Million Abortions
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 1/22/12 3:43 PM
President Barack Obama, today, release a statement celebrating the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that allowed for 54 million abortions. The decision, handed down on January 22, 1973, overturned pro-life laws offering protection for unborn children in most states across the country, and made abortions legal and virtually unlimited.
As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right. While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue- no matter what our views, we must stay united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant woman and mothers, reduce the need for abortion, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption. And as we remember this historic anniversary, we must also continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.
For most Americans, the day the Supreme Court handed down its decision was a day to mourn — a day to mourn the loss of tens of millions of unborn children — sons and daughters, brothers and sisters lost to a world that values choice over compassion. It was a day to mourn the damage abortion does to women — the medical problems, the mental health issues, the damaging of relationships with friends and family, and the destruction of relationships with God.
It was a day to mourn the culture of death abortion has brought to our nation and our world. A culture that believes death is a solution for those who are considered too old or too ill. A culture that believes human life is a commodity to be created and manipulated.
Last May, Gallup released the results of a new poll confirming, for the third time in the last year, that more Americans call themselves pro-life than “pro-choice” on abortion. The consistency of the new polling data showing more Americans pro-life than supporting abortion is enough to make Gallup call this the “new normal” in the United States. In 1996, 56 percent of Americans said they were “pro-choice” while 33 percent of Americans said they were “pro-life.” That’s a 23 percent pro-abortion majority. Now, with 47 percent of Americans saying they are pro-life and 45 percent saying they support abortion — we have a 2 percent pro-life plurality. We’ve swung public opinion 25 percent towards the pro-life side in the last 14 years.
Obama has done everything in his power to advance abortion and continue that pro-abortion legacy of the Supreme Court, including naming two more pro-abortion jurists in Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. He has also expanded that 54 million abortions by authorizing abortion funding in various instances and decreasing funds for abstinence education.
All in all, the Republican candidates are campaigning to replace Obama as pro-life advocates and would be monumentally better than pro-abortion President Barack Obama. No matter which GOP hopeful you support, they all would very likely implement a host of pro-life policies, appoint pro-life people to key administrative and court positions, and give unborn children the hope they don’t enjoy currently when it comes to any chance of gaining legal protection from abortion.
