black church obamaSome prominent Black pastors have become staunchly critical of President Barack Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage, with some who formerly backed and celebrated his ascent now turning their backs.

A Texas pastor who once led the Southern Baptist Convention in introducing a resolution that recognized Obama’s historic achievement has voiced his displeasure with the president’s support and approval of gays, reports the Associated Baptist Press.

Dwight McKissic, pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, wrote in a blog on May 9 that Obama’s statements is worthy of incurring wrath of biblical proportions.

From McKissic’s blog:

“President Obama has betrayed the Bible and the Black Church with his endorsement of same-sex marriage. The Bible is crystal clear on this subject, and the Black Church strongly opposes same-sex marriage. His endorsement is an inadvertent attack on the Christian Faith. America is now a candidate for the same judgment received by Sodom and Gomorrah. This was a sad, sad day and a very bad decision, by our beloved President. The moral impact of this day and decision is equal to the military impact of AL-Queda when they attacked the Twin Towers on 911. Today’s announcement is a moral earthquake equivalent to a tsunami or hurricane that will have far more devastating results than Katrina.”

McKissic’s stance mirrors that of many other Black church leaders who feel Obama’s support of gay marriage is a direct slight to one of the major tenets of the Christian faith. So far, Rev. Al Sharpton has been the only visible religious leader to defend the president’s decision to publicly address this hot-button issue.

With many pastors speaking out against Obama, will his brave decision to support gay marriage be his downfall in November? And will Black people still support Obama in droves, despite the Black church’s displeasure with his gay marriage stance?
