A large coalition of African-American pastors, snubbed by President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder in their demand for a meeting to discuss same-sex marriage, are calling on blacks to boycott the president and sign a petition demanding that the administration withdraw support for gay marriage.
“By embracing gay marriage, President Obama is leading the country down an immoral path,” said Rev. William Owens, president of the 1,300-member Coalition of African-American Pastors. “Some things are bigger than the next election.”
The pastors are angered with Obama’s recent endorsement of gay marriage. Obama did not, however, suggest that he would push for a federal mandate allowing same-sex marriages to take place.
Owens is the voice of a large segment of black pastors who support traditional marriage between a man and a women. “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,” he said.
