African American Pastors Form Group to Defend Marriage

African American Pastors Form Group to Defend Marriage September 2, 2012

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.
