Black Pastors Oppose Same Sex Marriage, Vow Civil Disobedience
While the majority of America celebrates the Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage, the coalition of African American Pastors are fighting against the ruling, calling it an "Unjust Law" that they refuse to obey.
The Christian Post reports that CAAP, a group of Black conservative religious leaders, joined other Christian leaders at a press conference in Memphis, Tenn., to announce their battle plans: a mass civil disobedience by members of the clergy across the nation.
“If they rule for same-sex marriage, then we’re going to do the same thing we did for the civil rights movement,” said the Rev. Bill Owens, president and founder of CAAP. “We will not obey an unjust law.”
Owens told U.S. News & World Report the organization was proud to have a black president but that the “pride has turned to shame.” He added, “The man holding the most powerful position in the world is stooping to lead the country down an immoral path.”
Meanwhile President Obama is being praised on Social Media for his speech on Marriage Equality Today. Watch this.
