African American Pastors Form Group to Defend Marriage

On the eve of President Obama’s really big show in Charlotte, a group of African American pastors announced that they are forming a group to defend traditional marriage. The African American vote is crucial to the President’s re-election chances. I believe that the President will sweep the African American vote. The question is whether or not they will turn out with the same enthusiasm — and numbers — as they did four years ago.

President Obama’s announcement earlier this year that he now favors same-sex marriage and the Democratic Party’s inclusion of a plank supporting same-sex marriage in the Party platform may play a role in this situation.

What effect, if any, all of this will have on the outcome of the election remains to be seen.
