    My people don't play.  And you don't want to mess with Black Christians. If you make them angry, they gonna hurt you. They gonna send you to God in some instances.  The fact that they may hurt or destroy themselves in the process does not matter.  The Black Church put George Bush in the White House because of some kind of Gay issue had come up before that election.  They shot themselve in the foot while hitting gay people over the head with their bibles.

    Are we going to see a re-run of what happened in that election.  This time; will my fellow Blacks give this election to Rommey to teach President Obama a lesson for agreeing Gays have a right to Marry?  Will they kill themselve and the rest of us by derailing the Obama re-election campaign?  I'm hoping they will remember the hell those eight years put working fathers and mothers through. I hoping they didn't forget how he lied to us. I hope my religious Brothers and Sisters remember how many soldiers are dead for nothing. 

    President Obama is still against Gay Marriage.  He is still a good Christian.  But, he is the President of the entire Country.  Gay people are in this Country and they deserve some kind of rights and protection. My sweet people!  I beg you to have a sane discussion with the rest of us this time, and don't show your anger by throwing the President, and the rest of your People, and your entire Country under the bus again.

      I don't think you have anything to worry about. The majority of Blacks will vote for Obama for the same reason they did last time, because he is black!

            Blacks just like most intelligent beings vote in their best interest.  Bush/Cheney lies and actions almost destroyed this Country.  They got away with murder and billions of dollars of the tax payers money.
            Today; our choice again is between a man that has proved he has the Countrys' interest at heart, Or, we can choose to put another corporate raider type of administration back in the white house.

            note:People who repeatedly do harmful things to themselves are mentally ill.
            What person in their right mind would vote to put a Republican in office again:Rich people that want to continue to rape and rob this Country and crazy, stupid poor people that think their bad choice is going to have a good outcome this time.

                "They have taken into obscurity the ideal that Representatives & Congress is an elected body who serve the interest of THE PEOPLE, they only represent billionaires. Those who are no majority, but unfortunately have enough money to purchase souls wholesale"....

                Some Republican people are wicked, and rich, and greedy, and selfish people.
                They can buy stupid, crazy, poor, greedy, selfish people.

                The Republican agenda is to destroy middle class working people and the poor by destroying our Nations infrastructure and institutions(especially Public Education and Unions)
                They also want to keep us occupied enough  with wars and attacks on each other so we wont notice they are raping and destroying our Country

        Eh...show some common sense and moral sense, hopefully!  LOL



        By the way, enough of the carp statements you made like "my people" and "you don't want to mess with Black Christians", etc..   The "my people" concept wasn't right when Eric Holder said it, and it isn't right when you or anyone else says it.  Your "people" should be Americans if you're an American.  I'm pretty tired of people dividing America along racial lines.  If we're gonna go there, we might as well re-enact the Civil War, except it would be a totally twisted mess instigated by the liberal agenda.   And that's the carp Obama's camp keeps pushing people toward.
        Seriously.  I don't care whether you're black or white or what, but you can keep your racial insinuations and judgements and aggressive remarks to yourself instead of posting them for public view.  Heck, just watching the videos of him condoning baby-killing and the legalization of sodomy would be enough.  But hey, why stop there?  He's made himself out to be the poster child for all kinds of unChristian unAmerican things.

        And no, Obama isn't against gay marriage.  And no, he's not a good Christian, still or otherwise.   If you'd like to get to know (your) President better, go do some research into the subject of Larry Sinclair, plus the choir director at "Rev" Wright's church plus Senator Obama, plus the other gay people in Chicago in that area who were killed before Obama's election.

          Black People are Strong Christians, as if our lives depended on it...because for a very long hard time our lives did depend on it.  We love GOD for our very lives because of our history.  There's no argument there.

          Obama does not want to marry a Gay Man! He's now tolerant of the fact that Gays should be allowed to marry each other.

          President Obama was a Chicago Politian...So What!  That automatically means he kidnapped the Lindburgh Baby?

          He is now the leader of our Nation and he works to make this Country better.  I don't want to give this Country to another Republican Corporate Raider so he can rape and rob this Country again.  We need alot more time to recover from the last Republican President.

      Read the statistics for yourself.  Besides, the last time Black Christians put their faith in and voted for a Republican President, that didn't work out for you or the rest of us that was left with a broke, and broken, and broken up Country.

        I do not care about statistics honestly, I am not a fan of those. Statistics are numbers that changed constantly and most of them are skewed. i understand that you have some anger or some sort of feeling behind what is going on but the problem here is we are already divided by labels such as "black christians"..that does not speak for all Christians including myself and as everyone else is saying here we highly don't that Romney is going to be the choice. This election is much different from the ones in the past because a lot of politicians are slick talks even Obama and they hide stuff but Romney has definitely let out a lot of stuff about how he feels.

    In the church I attend a majority are Democrat and Black, they are not voting for Romney. The fans they use in the Church which are nestled in their purses all say 'Obama.'

    All people are entitled to happiness, love and commitment! I believe Obama did the right thing and I am heterosexual. I am in a couple of groups on FB backing Gay Rights and announced the decision. I thank 'Obama' for being honest.

    He is a good Christian unlike Brenda states and judging others is a sin. It is not our place to point fingers and God did not make junk. All of us are created in his image! So if you are Gay stand proud! If you are straight stand proud and all of us should come together and love one another. Just my thoughts. smile

      John 7:24

      It's not a sin to discern when someone has actions that are un-Christlike.

      To accuse falsely is a sin. Not to discern.

      Obama lies consistently, and I'm not sinning because he does it on recorded video. The truth is the truth and it's not a sin to tell the truth. Is it a sin to say Satan is evil or to allow people to kill because it's "a sin to judge others"?

      People take that idea way too far, which is why there is so much corruption in the Church right now. All they need to do is say, "you can't judge me, who are you? God?"

      So now what? We just let people into the church, and allow them to stay if they i don't know.. say? Lie to the children about what the Bible says?

      And I love gays. I just don't think they need to claim Christianity and try to embrace what is un-Biblical at the same time.

      It's like being addicted to sex, [which is a struggle for me to fight off] and then saying I was born this way because I can't help but want women this bad, and that one doesn't appeal to me alone.

      It doesn't change the standard, it makes you rebellious which is what blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is.. the only sin that is not forgiven.

      I can't expect God to change His terms because I'm sexually-inclined any more than they can for sexual-difference.

      It's a disservice to them to tell them it's ok, because it's a lie [if they follow Christianity]. The Bible is clear.

      It's like telling someone the military doesn't mind if you steal when they do, and then when they get off the bus [assume they are gullible] they steal something and get dishonorably discharged.

      God doesn't say it's ok. Just like the military doesn't allow stealing.

      Why would we tell someone "go ahead, God doesn't mind if you sin" when 2 Timothy 2:19 says turn from every sin, not embrace it?

      Sin is betrayal of God. That is deliberately choosing sin [God's worst enemy] over God. Choosing to rub the sin in Christ's face after He suffered for us.

      That is not loving in my opinion. Not to the person sinning, to tell them they aren't.. or to God when we choose something that hurts Him [sin] over Him. You might as well tell God you don't love Him most which is breaking the first of the two commandments under grace through Christ. Matthew 22:37 - Love God with all your heart, mind, soul.. God first. -- Not sin first, God second.


      Pride is also a big part of the problem. Christ was humble, and taught humility. He said to abase yourself, and let God exalt you. Not vice versa.

      Pride is Satan's worst sin.

        Emile let me clarify "the fans" not all of the fans have political inclinations on them I was just pointing out which direction people were going.


        Here is my question about Obama Vs. Romney why was the question "Will the Black Church Vote For Romney?" How about " Will the White, Asian, Hispanic, etc Church  vote Obama or Romney?" Seems to me that when Obama won plenty of White people put him in the White House too. Because he didn't FIX everything in 4 years, now everyone is screaming about it. All of us knew he couldn't fix everything in four years so why is everyone upset? If they were so concerned about " What he could do, than why didn't they vote McCain/Palin?

        Nobody ever wins in politics and it appears that all of us who are Americans complain about whoever is in Office. If Mitt gets office lets see what he can do and lets see all of the complaints 4 years from now.

    I guess we would have to assume the "Black Church" you are referring to is predominately comprised of "Christians" -

    Considering the vast majority of Christians I know, Black, White, or Hispanic  view the Romney's "Mormonism" as a small, bizarre, possibly even blasphemous cultish style organization with its originating roots emanating directly from polygamist and nonsensical beliefs and behavior, I believe the black church will once again overwhelmingly continue to support a fine, respectful, relatively honest over achiever candidate like President Obama for his progressive ideas, courage, and economic savvy as acceptance and affirmation of support for his past & future accomplishments while in the White House -

    And yes of course, they will vote for a fellow Christian who obviously cares deeply about his mainstream faith -

      People want their children to be perfect(and Straight)
      Christians don't want to see two men walking down the center aisle of their church.

      Let's straighten out these misunderstandings that are really hurting innocent people.
      If you are trying to cure your children of homosexuality; you're a child abuser and no child should be left in your custody.

      Black Christians and all Christians should understand that gay people do not want to invade your churches and force you to witness gay marriages.  Gay couples want Social Security, Federal Spousal Rights straight couples get. Equal Treatment Under The Law! Not in your church.  The few gay people that want to force themselves on churches wont have the legal right to do so. So there's really no fight here.  Please let people be.

        You should take that up with the good Lord who designed two sexes, not an exclusive single inter-breedable sex.

        I think some things have been blown very far out of proportion by using the word "hate" innappropriately and falsely.

        Homosexuality is not maritally established as God established marriage, and man is not the authority above God to change His Laws, nor the operation of the human body's parts in defiance by doing so.

        Secular positions on sexuality that differ from Biblical teaching and it's obvious position on the subject should be seperate from the Church entirely and NOT supported if one believes in the Bible and that the Holy Bible is the truth.

        The Bible says plainly homosexuality is sin to God and sin is not to be embraced. If you teach children that such sin is ok you are speaking against God, not for Him. God does not allow rebellion by embracing sin, or teaching others to. Embracing sin is the only unforgivable sin.

        If you state the Bible is true and then proceed to do opposite of it's doctrine and say sin is ok because they don't believe, you are promoting sin and you are against Christ.

        Matthew 12:30

        30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

          There are some straight and gay people I HATE! I hate people that I think are bad people the hurt me or other people. It's so cowardly to use GOD as a weapon against innocent people that never hurt anyone. The most cowardly and dispicable actions people that call themselves Christians commit is they speak about sin, they prey about sin, they preach about how Gay people may hurt their children. 
          NOT ONE CHRISTIAN HAS THROWN DOWN THEIR BIBLE AND PICK UP A GUN AND KILLED A DRUG DEALER OR A CHILD MOLESTER THAT ARE ACCUTALLY KILLING THEIR CHILDREN!

          That's cowardly punk action and God is nowhere in you!

            Goodness. You're a hostile one...

            Thank you for the imagery, but your accusations are not a judgement from my heart, which only God and I can see. And they are false even from outward appearances sake to boot. Scripture is what says those things, not me.

            Please stop telling people where God is, it's very silly to say you know such.

            God bless Mr. Friendlyword.

    I had to read it again I agree with you, we can not cut ourselves off at the knees. I would say to those that dont understand your liberating view point to think of this.The black church better get real before they make the plunge to Romney? Just because you disagree with someone's personal views does not mean you abandon ship. I consider myself a Christian however, I do not subscribe to the scriptures that say, "Slave obey your master!" "Women should be silent!" "Men should not cheat on their wives and commit adultery, when they can buy a prostitute for the price of bread!" "Stone disobedient children!"  Now if I looked at the bible from the isolated view point you are suggesting no self-respecting women, black person, parent, or husband and wife would embrace it, because it would be debiliating and totally dehumanizing who they were. You cant in fact cut your leg off to spite your hand what good would that do you. I think in retrospect it is not our job nor is it our duty to judge anyone that is God's job and I think God is up for the challenge being creator and all. God did not write the Constitution nor did God write the Declaration of Independence, which did not include all of humanity any how. Teaching equality is not teaching sin it is teaching everyone should be treated equal regardless of who they are, what they do, or how they look. God gave this life who are we are mere mortals to try to tell any one person how to live the life God gave them.  No one said sin is ok, there is no sin greater than the next and only one unforgiveable sin and it isnt homosexuality. To be frank in Christ's time he bumped heads with many of the religious leaders of his time resulting in his cruxification. Those religious leaders are equavalent to many of the evangelical (not all) that are presenting themselves as fundamental christians and know "the way to God".  All I say is becareful and judge not less you be judged!

    Referring to the original posting, Obama will be fine. He will get the support he needs to win reelection.

    Those with no vision use division...and there are too many intelligent people out there to fall into the GOP's mindless games.

      Too many intelligents?

      A brief overview of history says that in no case with the exception of after-the-fact severe oppression do the masses make decent choices. Ever. And even then it's a very short lived experience.

      And to top it off, the choice of president, in my opinion, is about as big a help to furthering our country right now as it is to throwing a bucket of water on a blazing house engulfed in flames.

      The country is already in a downward vortex and there is nothing to plug the massive hole it's draining into.

    "You should take that up with the good Lord who designed two sexes, not an exclusive single inter-breedable sex."

    That's a lie!  According to the Bible: ADAMS were on this earth possibly for Billions of years before EVES were created (which makes you ask why Women were created after men. That's another forum)to be with Adams. So, according to the bible, GOD had Adam and Steve runnin around the earth doing whatever perfect healthy men do when they run around in the woods by themselvs with no women; until they got bored with each other or childbirth was just to hard givin the equipment they had to work with.
    Of course that's just my crazy scenario of what happen; because I wasn't there(where you?)
    Anyway humans and animals have always been straight and gay on this earth from the beginning of time. How could it be a sin if God made it that way and let it go on for so long?

      I have to agree with vector7. I didn't even bother to read their actual statement, but the claim that the Bible said that ANYTHING, in its entire content, is billions of years old. even one single thing, is just mind bogglingly ignorant. Granted, the reason that is ignorant stems from the Bible's stated age of the universe, but it doesn't make your assertion any less ignorant.

      I'm not saying this to generate offense, but I really do find that statement ignorant, and am appalled one can make the statement in a rational argument without themselves realizing it.

        I think it's a real show of ignorance to admit you didn't read something you're responding to.  The entire back and forth conversation vector7 and I had was wild crazy  speculation about how and when mankind and womenkind came to be.  I wouldn't be deranged enough to call it anything but a comic conversation.

        This is truly the most insidious affliction suffered by Right Wingnuts. Choose a word or two of a comment, and go on a tangent with your completely made up, false, and intentionally misleading comments about the subject discussed. If you can't honestly attack or criticize something you disagree with; move on to something else.  You disrespect the author with your foney ignorance of the subject matter.

    Believe it or not, people often vote for someone when they don't agree with every single thing he or she does.

    Not all Christians are rabidly anti- gay.

      Actully 53% of Black Christian are voting for Obama.  My only concern is the 43% that won't vote for the president.  Romney didn't come clean on the attack and that says something about his character. listen to his friend:
      Phillip Maxwell and the four others recounted a story of Romney as a teenager cutting the hair of a student presumed to be gay while he was pinned to the ground.
      Phillip Maxwell called it a “haunting memory” in an interview with ABC News and said it was a “hack job” with “clumps” of the boy’s “hair taken off.” Phillip Maxwell even called the boys, himself included, a “pack of dogs.”

    Personally, I don't think that Obama's presidency or fitness for office is going to be defined by this one issue.  Needless to say, this topic sharply divides a great number of people, but I'm still looking at the whole-person concept so to speak:  what can I expect from 4 more years of Obama vs. 4 years of Romney?  Who will better serve the interests I care about?  Which is most aligned with my views on the economy, the wars we're fighting, healthcare, etc.? 

    Basically, I'm tallying up the total of each candidate and will vote for the one that tips the scales furthest in my direction on the issues I care about.
