“God will never be for homosexual marriages. God is against anybody who is for homosexual marriages.”
Perhaps the most-damning event in the history of the National Organization For Marriage was when a court unsealed previously-sealed NOM documents that exposed the anti-gay organization’s corporate playbook directing the group to “drive a wedge between gays and blacks.”
In a just-released “exclusive” video from NOM, they prove their devotion to this despicable and highly-criticized strategy of race-baiting.
As The New Civil Rights Movement reported Friday, a group called the Coalition of African-American Pastors held a press conference and protest outside the NAACP‘s Houston convention last week. Reverend William Owens, the founder and head of the CAAP, says he is “a religious liaison for the National Organization For Marriage.”
Listen as Owens, and other African-American pastors and religious leaders denounce the LGBT community, homosexuality, and even claim ownership to the civil rights movement, as if only African-Americans deserve civil rights.
All according to NOM’s playbook.
In late March, NOM documents revealed these — and many other — disturbing corporate strategies and directives:
“The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks—two key Democratic constituencies. Find, equip, energize and connect African American spokespeople for marriage, develop a media campaign around their objections to gay marriage as a civil right; provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing these spokesmen and women as bigots…”
“Expose Obama as a social radical. Develop side issues to weaken pro-gay marriage political leaders and parties and develop an activist hase of socially conservative voters. Raise such issues as pornography, protection of children, and the need to oppose all efforts to weaken religious liberty at the federal level.”
“To use homosexual marriage and civil rights in the same sentence is an oxymoron,” Pastor John McCrutcheon announces in NOM’s video, claiming that “the homosexual advocates have an agenda, that is basically to hijack the civil rights. Homosexuality is not a civil right.”
McCrutcheon couldn’t be more wrong. As Jeremy Hooper at Good As You notes, “That’s where we now are with NOM: they pit God against a growing majority of their fellow Americans.”
Consider the Civil Rights Laws of America, it was good for all people especially for African Americans, legislated by a majority Republican Congress, endorsed by most Democrats in Congress and signed into Law by a Democratic President. It was good legislation and good for all people. However, since the signing of the Civil Rights Bill into Law, it has been high-jacked by lawless people and groups who use the good Law to carry out lawlessness and evil deeds and agendas. The Law is good if man use it lawfully. In America we now have homosexuals who used the Civil Rights Laws as a right to sodomize each other and practice other deviant behaviors in society and to call themselves married. When lead by unscrupulous so called legal experts, Extremist lay claim to America’s Civil Rights Laws even when they high-jack airplanes and use them as weapons of terror and other sinister agendas that are acted out on innocent people.
Infamous Bishop Harry Jackson also was on hand, quoting an NAACP board member who resigned, saying “he’s never seen any gay people asked to sit in the back of the bus.” Another ludicrous comment, as if no African-Americans were ever gay, as if sitting in the back of the bus was the only result of the lack of civil rights for African-Americans. That comment alone demeans gays and blacks — something NOM is actively engineering. Jackson should know better.
In May, just after President Obama announced his support of same-sex marriage, Bishop Jackson asked if President Obama “is going to … absolutely erase the image of biblical marriage from the face of the earth.”
Pastor Owens claims “peer pressure” is leading Blacks to support same-sex marriage, after President Obama announced his support.
“God is for heterosexual marriages,” Pastor John McCrutcheon claimed. “God has never been for homosexual marriages, God will never be for homosexual marriages. God is against anybody who is for homosexual marriages.”
These pastors ignore many facts, including that Julian Bond, a former head of the NAACP and its chairman emeritus, supports same-sex marriage, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s wife, Coretta Scott King, fully supported LGBT civil rights, and Dr. King himself gave Bayard Rutin, a Black, gay man who because his right hand, tremendous power in his organization.
Shame on NOM for continuing to lead the way in race-baiting. Shame on the men and women of God to fall for it.
