Black faith leaders announce campaign goal to strip 25 percent of black vote from Oba
Quote:Unhappy with President Barack Obama‘s support of same-sex marriage, a group of African-American faith leaders have announced a campaign aimed at stripping 25 percent of the black vote that went to Obama in 2008 (95 percent).

The newly formed nonprofit group, God Said, will begin targeting voters in Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Florida with television and radio advertising, as well as a grassroots campaign to encourage people to consider the gospel when they enter the voting booth.

“The black community is among the most religious in America and we are offended that President Obama has announced his support of same-sex marriage, that the NAACP has blindly supported the secular views of the Democratic Party, and that their national platform plainly supports same-sex marriage,” said Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani of, and a God Said founder, in a statement.

“I am confident that this message will be well received and acted upon on Election Day.”

The group currently has 22 advisory board members and plans to spend an estimated $1 million on the campaign, a spokesperson told TheDC, adding that its message has support among other faith leaders and congregants, including the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP), which has vociferously protested against Obama’s same-sex marriage stance. Some of the CAAP members are on the God Said board.

“During the 2008 elections, 70 percent of African Americans voted to ban same-sex marriage in California while they also voted for Barack Obama for president,” added Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and black outreach director of the pro-life Priests for Life.

“We fully intend to shift 25 percent of the black vote from the 2008 election by charging every voter to examine each candidate and vote for the one that supports their core belief in natural marriage.”

The group claims their goal is to give voice to black supporters of traditional marriage who feel like they are not represented by the Democratic Party or NAACP. To be sure, a vast majority of African Americans identify as Democratic.

Reading some of the comments about Stacey Dash make you really wonder about the future of humanity. So what if a black woman wants to support Romney? According to a lot of the forum and Twitter chatter, it seems that all blacks are supposed to vote for Obama. Does that mean all whites are supposed to vote for Romney?

If you like a candidate, so be it. If you can articulate why you like a candidate, all the better.
