BLACK LEADERS TO LAUNCH “NATURAL MARRIAGE” CAMPAIGN AIMED AT BLACK COMMUNITIES
GodSaid.org reveals plan to urge voters to examine their own beliefs in traditional marriage and vote “His values, not your party’s”
HOUSTON, TX – An increasingly large number of African-American pastors, leaders and civil rights activists are voicing their displeasure with the Democratic Party’s platform on same-sex marriage. Tired of remaining silent, these leaders have formed GodSaid.org, a Texas nonprofit whose sole mission is to echo voices of individuals and organizations in the black community who support Natural Marriage and are not represented by the NAACP, the secular courts, or the Democratic Party.
“During the 2008 elections, 70 percent of African Americans voted to ban same-sex marriage in California while they also voted for Barack Obama for president,” said Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and black outreach director of Priests for Life. “We fully intend to shift 25 percent of the black vote from the 2008 election by charging every voter to examine each candidate and vote for the one that supports their core belief in natural marriage.”
The newly formed organization will bring their message of supporting traditional marriage between one man and one woman onto the national stage through targeted advertising in OH, VA, NC, WI, and FL. GodSaid.org will also be working with up to and approaching 4,000 “pulpits” and pastors to spread their message over many denominations through the election.
“The black community is among the most religious in America and we are offended that President Obama has announced his support of same-sex marriage, that the NAACP has blindly supported the secular views of the Democratic Party, and that their national platform plainly supports same-sex marriage,” said Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani of RagingElephants.org, and a founder of GodSaid.org. “I am confident that this message will be well received and acted upon on Election Day.”
“All of my adult life has been focused upon bringing similar family messages to the black communities so that they will live and vote their values,” said Dr. Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union. “The NAACP, the Democratic Party, and others who supposedly stand up for the black community have failed. I firmly believe that this powerful and traditional message will lead our nation back to its moral compass.”
