    I, along with many others in the black community, was very disturbed. I wish I could say I was shocked, but I never believed his word at Saddleback Church. I had followed his history and record. I knew he was always pro-abortion and for homosexual “marriage,” even though the Bible is clear about the dangers of such practices. Sometimes politicians say what is convenient at a certain time, and I think that’s why he originally stated his support for traditional marriage — it may be the reason he reversed his position as well.

    In 2008, the black community as a whole voted almost as a single block for Mr. Obama. Blacks also overwhelmingly approved Proposition 8 in California, which banned homosexual “marriage” in favor of natural marriage during the same election. Conservative morals and values run deep in the black community. In the current election, we need to remember those roots when we go to the polls.

    In 2008, many blacks voted for skin color. They, along with millions of others in the country, were so enticed by making history and were so caught up in the “hope and change” Mr. Obama promised to bring that they pulled the lever for Mr. Obama out of euphoria instead of voting according to their values and morals.

    This time, in 2012, I beg my brothers and sisters in the black community to look past color and vote for God’s values, not those of a particular political party.

    He's wasting his time because as much as he thinks Blacks and their morals are against homosexual marriage, they are equally against Mormonism.

    The Black community has not forgotten that Mormons did not want them in the Mormon Church.

    And they certainly haven't forgotten what the Book of Mormon says about Black skin. In the words of the pastor of one predominately Black congregation

    Miss King states the reason here why Obama was elected in 2008. A lot of people wanted to give themselves a pat on the back, a warm glow, by voting for the first black president.

    You are the one "wasting your time". I would think that she has a lot more influence on black people than you do.

    I'm extremely hard-of-hearing even with my hearing aid, so I cannot hear the letter "s". :smilewinkgrin:

    They make hearing aids for the finger tips. I got mine at the VA.
