In an effort to combat a recent rise from African American pastors (The Coalition of African-American Pastors) who are urging their congregation not to vote because of President Obama’s position on gay marriage, San Antonio pastors have gone on record to speak out on the issues of gay marriage, women’s rights, healthcare and what they feel is a civic duty to vote.
Bishop David M. Copeland of New Creation Christian Fellowship, says “The President is not your pastor in chief but the President of all Americans.”
Pastor Kenneth Kemp of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, says “We must respect women’s rights for equal pay for equal work and access to care.”
Bishop Alfred Blue of Family Life International Ministries, comments, “We have a civic duty according to the word of God and we have a right to be heard.”
It will be interesting to see what others views are. If President Obama is not supported we will have a much bigger problem than worrying about who loves who.
