Ah president Obama! My president. You love him passionately or hate him with equal fervor! It’s hard to BE indifferent when it’s comes to our 44th President. Obama who? Ah, I don’t care. Huh-huh!
So he’s brought his feelings out of the closet…and he supports gay marriage. Well that puts Mitt Romney on the spot! The Republican Presidential challenger can’t even breathe if the Tea Party does NOT allow it. Romney, poor guy, he tried…he hired a gay consultant. But PRESSURE from the right forced him to cave in. NOPE, he can’t have a gay anything or even appear to favor anything gay – which is why he looks so morose. If he’s funny and gay – oops I used gay. Nope, Romney can’t
Makes you wonder how he would govern — with Rick Santorum and the Tea Party ALREADY breathing down his neck…during the primaries!
So Joe Biden announces he supports gay marriage and of course somebody just HAD to ask the President too – and he naturally just HAD to tell you. That’s a scoop, but I don’t know whose scoop!
Did the reporter get Obama or did Obama get the reporter?
I feel about President Obama the way I feel about my son: frustrated! I love my child but by God sometimes I want to thump him – and I’m planning all kinds of punishments in my mind – and then I try to reason with him – and he charms me – and I forget what the hell I was upset about – and I end up giving him money to go buy some game I absolutely detest!
By gosh if I was married to President Obama I’d already have pulled out ALL my hair! Can you imagine trying to argue with this guy – especially if like me you THRIVE on argument? You’re deliberately smashing the plates Rham Emanuel gave you as a house warming present – he’s just sitting there – watching you… ARRGH!
Here is a brilliant guy who swept into office on a tsunamic surge of approval and within 2 years he’d squandered his political Capital on Health Care Reform that’s no reform? Four years later, we’re still fighting over “Obamacare.” Why? Because it was badly done! Why? Because President Obama wants to please everybody – and whenever you do that, you end up pleasing NOBODY and EVERYBODY ends up NOT liking you!
He tried sooo hard (well he appeared to try) to please Republicans. He dined them and breakfasted them and played golf with them and begged them…and they said: NO. We intend to make you a ONE-TERM president.
Me, I’d have told Republicans to…er, get lost…long ago, but not Obama. He’s the Little Engine That Thinks He Can…The Energizer Bunny of Politics. He keeps going and going. He’s losing Democrats in his zeal to win Republicans. They ain’t never gonna like you, no matter if you give them a kidney! Both kidneys! Forget them!!!
If President Obama had spent all that time he wasted trying to woo Republicans on pleasing Democrats and Independents, he’d be riding high today.
Finally, this black opposition to Gays NEEDS to change.
Let’s hope black pastors in the U.S. follow Obama’s lead and understand the DIFFERENCE between Legal Rights and Religious Beliefs. Without the courts Blacks and Whites would NOT be able to marry today, either. In fact without court rulings, blacks in America would be treated like gays – or worse!.
The black church’s views on homosexuality do not MAKE black gays go away. It makes them go UNDERGROUND – on the “Down-Low” and that deception is destroying black lives.
Here are the Facts from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):
- African Americans are the racial/ethnic group most affected by HIV.
- In 2009, African Americans comprised 14% of the US population but accounted for 44% of all new HIV infections.
- Young African American gay and bisexual men are especially at risk of HIV infection.

BLACK pastors! Help BREAK the stigma. Stop gay black men from having sex with females to COVER their gay inclinations. This leads to negative/deadly results for these women. Few black males DARE to be openly gay. They’re too ashamed to come out due to the rigid and intolerant anti-gay attitudes of black people…fostered by PASTORS who are often unschooled in theology and teach the opposite of love and tolerance. Thanks…! You’re really helping.
Wake up, pastors. Don’t wait until your black congregation is dead…or dying!
