NAACP Backs Same-Sex Marriage While BLACK Unemployment Remains Extremely HIGH; They Don't Speak For ME!

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

I Don't know about YOU but the NAACP Does NOT Speak for the Entire American BLACK Community.

Perhaps back in the 1950's & 1960's But NOT in the 21st Century!

They Most Certainly Do NOT Speak for ME!

I Personally Do NOT Accept Gay Rights Or Gay Marriage as a Civil Rights Issue.

This Does NOT Mean That I HATE Gay People Because I Don't Hate Them.

I Can Love Gay People With The LOVE Of GOD While Choosing To Disapprove Of Their Gay Lifestyle, Of Which I Believe Is Nothing More Than A Personal Lifestyle Choice Versus Natural Genetics As Skin Color & Ethnicity Are.

Yes I Do Believe What God's Holy Word Says about Homosexuality.

He Condemned It! FOREVER!

Please Don't Argue Or Debate With ME Regarding GOD's Views On Homosexuality.

Instead Go Directly To GOD And Debate With Him!

If Anyone Thinks They Are More Intelligent Than GOD & Can Win A Debate Against GOD, Please Be My Guest And Step Up To Him.

I Can Assure You That The Lord GOD Almighty Will Always WIN!

GOD Will Always Have The LAST WORD! NOT Mankind Whom HE Created!

If Other People Within The 21st Century BLACK American Community Choose To Accept Gay Rights Or Gay Marriage As A Civil Right, That Is Their Choice.

I Respect Their Choice Even If I Do NOT Agree With Them.

If My Refusal To Accept Gay Rights Or Gay Marriage As A Civil Right Causes National 21st Century BLACK Leaders To Ostracize Me, Then I Will Just Pray For Those Leaders & Continue To Trust In GOD.

Jesus Christ Is My Lord & Savior.
He Is Also The Author & Finisher Of My Faith!
It Is In Him That I Live, Move & Have My Being.

I Personally Do NOT Accept Gay Rights Or Gay Marriage as a Civil Rights Issue.

Thank You For Respecting My Decision.

The NAACP Has Announced Its Support For Legalizing Gay Marriage In America.

Excuse Me But What About JOBS, Black-Owned Small Businesses, Quality Education, Protecting Voting Rights, Racial Profiling, Student Loan Debt, Reducing BLACK Recidivism & Affordable Housing?

I Don't Mean To Sound Redundant But I Would Like Someone To Please Logically Explain To Me How Legalizing Gay Marriage Is Going To Heal What Ails The Collective American BLACK Community?

Will Gay Marriage Lower the BLACK Community's Unemployment Rate??
For 3 Years it has hovered between 16 to 55% depending upon Demographics.
The BLACK U.S. Unemployment Rate fell to 13% in April. However the WHITE U.S. Unemployment Rate is 8.1%. Its Still Much Higher for BLACK Men. Up to 55% depending on Regional Demographics.

Will Gay Marriage Repeal GOP-Sponsored, 21st Century Jim Crow Voter ID Laws?
New Voter ID Laws threaten to Deny the Voting Rights of Millions of U.S. Citizens.

Will Gay Marriage Improve the Quality Of Public School Education for Millions of BLACK Children?
Many BLACK Students in the U.S. are Performing 30 Years Behind White Students!

Will Gay Marriage Reduce Recidivism In the American BLACK Community?
In case the NAACP has forgotten, there are currently more than 846,000 BLACK Men housed in U.S. Prisons like Slaves.
Included in those disturbing statistics are a growing number of BLACK Fathers & Their Sons Both being Sentenced for Crimes & Incarcerated at the SAME time!

Will Gay Marriage Increase the number of BLACK-Owned Businesses or Help BLACK-Owned Businesses to Expand so they can become Job Creators?
Many BLACK-Owned Businesses Lack the Capital to Expand. Less than 1% of Funding for BLACK-Owned Businesses was included in the Stimulus Bill.

Will Gay Marriage ease the Affordable Housing Crisis plaguing many BLACK Communities?
Or Help Prevent Foreclosures for Millions of BLACK Homeowners Hurt by the Wall Street Crash & Underwater Housing Crunch?
Many States are using Federal Funding allocated for Affordable Housing & Mortgage Assistance to plug Budget Deficits.
For Troubled BLACK Homeowners Hurt by the Wall Street Crash, its about to get Worse because of the BLACK Unemployment Crisis.

Will Gay Marriage help Hundreds of Thousands BLACK College Students/ Grads Burdened by Student Loan Debt?
Due to the High BLACK Unemployment Rate, many BLACK College Grads are experiencing great Financial Difficulty Repaying their High Interest Loans.

Will Gay Marriage End Racial Profiling In America For BLACK & Latino Men?
Especially in Large Metropolitan Regions like New York City.
Trayvon Martin's MURDER was a Direct Result of George Zimmerman's Racial Profiling.

YES The American BLACK Community is in Peril!
Even Young BLACK Children Learn At An Early Age That The American BLACK Community Is In TROUBLE.

So What's the NAACP's Solution?

Just Legalize Gay Marriage!

I guess JOBS, Black-Owned Small Businesses, Quality Education, Protecting Voting Rights, Racial Profiling, Student Loan Debt, Reducing BLACK Recidivism & Affordable Housing are NO longer on the NAACP's list of 21st Century Priorities.

Dear GOD Help Us!

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NIV):
"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters, nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

Leviticus 18:22 (KJV):
"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind it is abomination."

Leviticus 20:13:
"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

Romans 1:24-32:
"24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."

NAACP announces support of same-sex marriage, shoring up Obama's base

The NAACP announced Saturday the 103-year-old black civil rights group is supporting same-sex marriage.

The group's board of directors made the decision at a meeting this weekend, saying it was a "continuation of its historic commitment to equal protection under the law."

The decision follows President Obama's recent support of gay marriage, a move that threatened to divide key parts of the Democratic voting base -- the gay and black communities.

"The mission of the (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) has always been to ensure political, social and economic equality of all people," said Roslyn M. Brock, chairman of the board. "We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law."

Black religious leaders -- who traditionally have opposed same-sex marriage -- originally opposed the president's recent decision but appear to have softened their position in recent days.

Pastor Emmett Burns said on the Sunday following the president's May 9 announcement that he opposed the decision but this week reportedly said he would vote for Obama.

Burns, a delegate in the Maryland state legislature, was among the lawmakers who strongly opposed a same-sex marriage bill that passed in the Assembly this year.

He helped defeat the bill last year.

Conservatives think the issue could still split the president's base.

"He's on the wrong side of this issue," Deneen Barille, a black conservative told Fox News earlier this week.

"He's going against the values of black Americans voters. … He's splitting his base. He's going for the gay community versus the black community where he has thrown them under the bus."

However, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force hailed the NAACP's decision Saturday.

"This is truly a historic moment," the group said in a statement. "The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force could not be more thrilled."

This gay marriage issue marks the second time in the last year that a decision by the Obama administration has threatened to split the president's base.

The administration has withheld federal approval on the Keystone XL oil pipeline over environmental concerns.

The decision has pleased environmentalists but has upset some union members who say construction of the pipeline, from Canada to the Texas Gulf Coast, would create thousands of jobs.

Should the administration grant the permits, Obama could arguably lose the environmental vote.

Democratic strategist Ben Tulchin said earlier this week the question of whether either issue will hurt the president's re-election efforts must be viewed in the context of the 2012 election cycle.

"Two years ago, with the president not having a named candidate, this might have been an issue," said Tulchin, president of the San Francisco-based Tulchin Research. "But is the president's base going to flock to Mitt Romney, absolutely not."

He said the Keystone issue further illustrates the point, considering that states run by Republicans are pushing anti-union legislation.

Democratic voters are saying "we have guys who are trying to protect union rights versus guys who are trying to screw workers."

Gay Marriage could be big voting issue in Colorado

Minutes after President Barack Obama endorsed gay marriage on May 9, Colorado's Democratic governor choked back tears as he ordered state lawmakers to reconsider a civil-unions measure defeated the day before by Republicans.

In the week that followed, the debate over equal rights for same-sex couples consumed the Capitol. Republicans succeeded in killing the measure, but lawmakers from both parties say the issue could play an important role in White House race in Colorado.

"Go back to your communities, go back to your neighborhoods, go back to your churches and let them know that the fight continues," Republican House Speaker Frank McNulty told gay-marriage opponents gathered outside the Capitol last Tuesday.

Colorado Democrats predict that their loyalists, as well as independents, will rally behind Obama, given his support of same-sex marriage.

"That will have a positive impact on the chances of the president being re-elected and winning Colorado in November," said Democratic Rep. Mark Ferrandino, a gay lawmaker who co-sponsored the civil unions legislation and said that its supporters would be "very active" in the fall on the issue.

Obama plans to give the commencement address Wednesday at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, before attending fundraisers in Denver.

Since 2008, equal rights for same-sex couples -- either through civil unions or gay marriage -- has flared in a few of the most contested presidential states.

Two of those, Iowa and New Hampshire, now recognize gay marriage.

North Carolina recently took the opposite stance, voting to strengthen its ban against gay marriage.

But the fight in Colorado has proved especially bitter, and feelings on both sides are raw.

So Republicans and Democrats are bracing for social issues such as gay marriage and civil unions to factor into voters' calculations about whether to back the Democratic incumbent or likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney, who opposes allowing gay people to get married.

The economy is certain to dominate the race in the state. Colorado's unemployment rate is 7.9 percent, lower than in some swing states and marginally lower than the national average of 8.1 percent. But with joblessness falling, social issue could well become more of an issue in voters' minds.

Colorado has nine electoral votes, and the state is evenly divided among registered Republicans, Democrats and independents.

Look no further than the state's evolution on same-sex partnerships as evidence of its swing nature.

Just six years ago, Coloradans overwhelmingly voted to change the state constitution to ban gay marriage after a campaign largely funded by Focus on the Family, a conservative group based in Colorado that's influential across the nation.

By this spring, though, there was enough bipartisan support in the state Legislature to approve civil unions. Yet GOP leaders twice used legislative maneuvers to stop same-sex recognition, most recently last Monday.

Republicans accused Gov. John Hickenlooper of taking marching orders from the White House by pushing the civil union measure in hopes of diverting attention from the sluggish economic recovery.

"Make no mistake about it," McNulty said. "It's absolutely clear to me that Gov. Hickenlooper is reading straight from President Obama's campaign playbook."
Democrats said Colorado Republicans filibustered equality.

Some conservatives insist that Obama's position on marriage will hurt him in Colorado.

"Six years is not a long time," said Carrie Gordon Earll of CitizenLink, the public policy arm of Focus on the Family. She was referring to the state passage of its gay marriage ban. "I would think a majority of voters would say, `That does not align with my views."'

Others counter that Colorado's views may be changing as quickly as the nation's.

Consider that a handful of Republicans in the House said they'd support civil unions, meaning the measure would have passed if GOP leaders hadn't maneuvered to prevent a vote.

Senate Democrats have passed civil unions two years in a row, both times joined by Republican women in the Senate.

Some Republicans fear that the GOP's civil unions stand in Colorado could harm the party with independent voters.

"The truth is we may have not only sacrificed our razor-thin House majority, but we also may have permanently impaired Republican prospects in Colorado at all levels, including for the presidential race," said Alexander Hornaday, president of Colorado Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights organization.

Then there are those who doubt the issue's potency come the fall. Among them is Kirk Fordham, the executive director of the Denver-based Gill Action Fund.

The political organization is funded by Tim Gill, a nationally prominent gay rights activist credited with helping fund a Democratic takeover of Colorado's legislature in 2005.

"By the time we get to November," Fordham predicted, "the attention will largely have shifted back to economic issues."
