Same-Sex Marriage Costs Obama Same Race Voters
I confess. I am stunned and excited. Black family and friends who voted for Obama are saying they will not vote for Obama this time around.
Why? It's the "gay marriage-thing." Obama recently came out in support of gay marriage. Black folks simply cannot roll with it.
Someone who attends an all-black church told me their pastor said, "God destroyed cities because of homosexuality."
Though under-reported, Obama supporting gay-marriage has created a firestorm in the black Christian community. Black pastors are attempting to pressure the president to walk back his support of what they consider an abomination.
Black pastors are also offended by what they call the "hijacking" of the civil rights movement by the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community.
A relative said despite the great job Obama is doing with the economy, he cannot sell out his Christian values for economic prosperity. Thus, he cannot vote for a president who supports gay marriage.
I wanted to say, "Are you nuts? Obama is doing a horrific job regarding the economy." As a matter of fact, blacks are hardest hit. Black unemployment is at an unprecedented high under the Obama regime.
But I held my tongue for now. I hope to educate him later. He is a black man voting principle over racial loyalty, and that is priority one in my book.
Could gay marriage be Obama's Achilles heel? Or perhaps gay marriage is Obama's fatal weakness, his Kryptonite! I know what you are saying: OK, Lloyd, enough with the corny metaphors. Please forgive me. I am just so excited that finally an issue has broken Obama's vise-grip on the brains of my fellow black Americans.
Readers of my articles know I have come at my fellow blacks from all angles -- bombarding them with facts and truth, explaining why they should not vote for Obama. Responses have ranged from yawns to "shut up, you Uncle Tom."
But this gay marriage-thing -- apparently, this is the one issue that is breaking black America's night-of-the-living-brain-dead zombie loyalty to Obama. Cool, I'll take it! Praise the Lord!
