Video: Black Pastor Says Obama Turned His Back on the Values of Their Community By Coming Out For Gay Marriage

Via The Right Scoop, N.C. pastor Dr. Patrick Wooden recorded a radio ad for the National Organization for Marriage encouraging the black community in North Carolina to vote against Obama because of his recent flip-flop on gay marriage:

Many black pastors are offended  because tone deaf homosexual activists like to compare their push for gay marriage with the civil rights movement of the 60’s – a comparison that rankles the  feathers of blacks who still remember those days.

Back in May, Maggie Gallagher predicted the following:

Obama’s gay marriage endorsement changed the political dynamic in ways that will hurt him in at least three ways:

1. Obama consolidated Mitt Romney’s base.

In a poll taken by PRRI/RNS Religion News Survey from May 2 to May 6, white evangelicals backed Romney by only 68 percent to 19 percent — well under the 79 percent support they gave George W. Bush’s winning campaign in 2004.

Now? Well, the numbers aren’t crunched yet but take this as a leading indicator: Robert Jeffress, the Dallas Baptist minister who called Mormonism a cult at last year’s Values Voter Summit, just endorsed Romney: “Given the choice between a Christian like Barack Obama who embraces very unbiblical principles like abortion and a Mormon like Mitt Romney who supports biblical values like the sanctity of life and marriage, I think there’s a good biblical case for voting for Mitt Romney,” Jeffress said.

2. Obama turned off independents.

A whopping 40 percent of voters told Gallup that Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage would affect their vote, and among independents — by a 2 to 1 margin — it made voters less likely to vote for him.

3. Obama may have put his own black and Latino base into play.

Pastor Emmett Burns (a delegate to the Maryland Assembly) was very upset: “He has said to his base, African-Americans, ‘I am going against your beliefs and your thoughts,'” Burns told the media. He now says he will no longer support the president and predicts Obama will lose in November.

How many Pastor Burnses are out there? We do not yet know.

Here’s the biggest change: Obama, by endorsing gay marriage, has broken through the media silence imposed on those who oppose gay marriage, generating new, unexpected and highly visible expressions of opposition.

All of a sudden, pastors across America are preaching against gay marriage. Conservative talk radio shows are addressing it. People are hearing that their friends and neighbors disapprove.

This is a conversation – as with medicare – Americans are happy to have.

And Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage may turn out to be his Achilles’ Heel in this election.

    I don’t think Obama is worried about his black base. He figures, and I agree, that the black population will vote for him regardless of his record.

    He guesses right – there are too many blacks who are motivated by hatred – educated or not. Almost all of them are trying to “get Whitey” as much as they are seeking their own self interest. I experienced them firsthand at my Uber-Liberal job and know precisely what makes them tick. In their minds, if they can find a way to “get whitey” then they have automatically gained something – even if it hurts themselves in the process. It is a truly sick pathology that has been nurtured and cultivated by Liberals for many decades.
