A supposedly African-American-led group, God Said, working to siphon black support from Obama just released its first ad
It's nothing particularly shocking, but one thing did catch my eye. See if you can stop the video at 17 seconds so you can see who is involved. I recognize four faces.
"What of Christians who believe that homosexuality is sin? Are they to be silenced? Subjected to discipline or discharge? Will they live in close quarters with men or women attracted to the same sex? When homosexuality is given protected status, Christians are muzzled or persecuted for their beliefs, and their First Amendment Rights are trampled. This has happened in corporations all over America. The message is 'be silent or lose your job.' In the military, you cannot merely find another job. If keeping qualified people is the priority, what about the Christians who may be forced to leave the military because the environment is hostile to their faith? The message from Gates and Mullen is, 'Get out.' The repeal of the 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' law is a disaster of historic proportions and it must be reinstated. My organization and others will to fight to make sure that happens.
So what it all comes down to is that this group is a phony concoction comprised of the same African-American sellouts who clutch their Bibles with one hand while having their other hand held out for that religious right and conservative money.
