BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Just days after President Barack Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage, pastors and priests around Maryland took to their own pulpits with their reaction– and in some cases– condemnation of the president.********
When President Obama announced that his position on same-sex marriage had evolved, it outraged some African-American pastors like Pastor and Del. Emmett Burns. “He has said to his base, African-Americans, ‘I am going against your beliefs and your thoughts’,” Burns said.
He’s so opposed to same-sex marriage, he told church members he will no longer support the president and now predicts Obama will lose the election because of it.
Black churches conflicted on Obama's gay marriage decision - USA Today
The pulpits of the nation's black churches took measure Sunday of President Obama's decision to support gay marriage, and the result was conflicted.Andrew Sullivan on Barack Obama: The First Gay President
Some churches were silent on the issue. At others, pastors spoke against the president's decision Wednesday — but kindly of the man himself. A few blasted the president and his decision. A minority spoke in favor of the decision and expressed understanding of the president's change of heart. Bishop Timothy Clark, head of the First Church of God, a large African-American church with a television ministry in Columbus, Ohio, was perhaps most typical. He felt compelled to address the president's comments at a Wednesday evening service and again Sunday morning.
He was responding to an outpouring of calls, e-mails and text messages from members of his congregation after the president's remarks. What did he hear from churchgoers? "No church or group is monolithic. Some were powerfully agitated and disappointed. Others were curious — why now? to what end? Others were hurt. And others, to be honest, told me it's not an issue and they don't have a problem with it."
What did the bishop tell his congregation? He opposes gay marriage. It is not just a social issue, he said, but a religious one for those who follow the Bible. "The spiritual issue is ground in the word of God."
The president’s bold support shifted the mainstream. Andrew Sullivan on why it shouldn't be surprising—Obama’s life as a biracial man has deep ties to the gay experience. .

Part One: The Fiction and Non-Fiction of Obama - The Blaze
It could be argued that if then-presidential candidate John McCain had truly assailed his rival Barack Obama over his exhaustive collection of dubious dealings and less-than-scrupulous friends (think: Davis, Khalidi, Pflager, Wright, Ayers, Rezko, Said, etc.), he just might have taken the election. Instead, McCain chose to “keep above the fray” — although few are clear as to why bringing up substantive and valid concerns over the first-term senator’s past constituted otherwise to the Maverick-camp. Now, President Obama is three years into his first term as president, and his campaign for reelection has officially kicked off with a record-setting $15 million celebrity-fundraiser hosted by devotee George Clooney.*****
If the president’s true history continues to be replaced by the alternate narrative he has constructed for himself; if his fact, rather than fiction-based life is swept under the carpet again, he will likely retake the Oval Office.
POLITICO: Obama’s Wall Street Problem. “The giant $2 billion trading loss at JPMorgan Chase highlights a central problem in President Barack Obama’s case for a second term: Four years after the financial crisis nearly brought the nation to its knees, very little appears to have changed. . . . And now one of the largest banks in the United States, headed by a Democrat and operating with government guarantees, has turned in the kind of headline-grabbing, casino-style style loss that drives voters crazy and that Obama’s financial reform bill was supposed to stop.” Unexpectedly.Plus this: “The guy in the street in 2008 and 2009 was worried about his or her deposits, and now it’s clear they should still be worried.”
Obama’s Father Was Blacklisted as an “Anti-American, Anti-White” Terrorist in 1959, U.S State Department and British Secret Service Documents Reveal
The shocking dossier on Obama Sr. came to light after a lengthy case in the British High Court brought by a team of professors at Oxford University. The records hark back to a time when Kenya was still a British colony and Obama Sr. was a Kenyan national who traveled to Hawaii for a college education, despite his political radicalism and poor academic record. The suspicious move prompted a closer look by security agents who worried about the young man’s sudden fixation on entering the United States. Barack Jr. hatched a very similar scheme to network his way from academia to the Halls of Congress, despite his equally mediocre educational record.
On September 1, 1959, one British ambassador penned a highly classified communiqué that stated, “I have discussed with the State Department. They are as disturbed about these developments as we are. They point out that Kenya students have a bad reputation over here for falling into the wrong hands and for becoming both anti-American and anti-white.”
Despite the warnings, Obama Sr. was allowed to stay in Hawaii were he met and married Stanley Ann Dunham. Sometime afterward, the couple traveled to Indonesia where the President was born and raised with a traditional Muslim upbring, complete with Imans and Madrasas. While this is not the story told by the mainstream media, far too many questions have been raised about the incredibly fraudulent birth certificate the Washington insiders tried to pass off on the public a few years back.
Despite this long string of earth-shattering revelations, the U.S. State Department does not appear likely to release any FBI or CIA files they have on the President’s father. It is imagined that under Director J. Edgar Hoover, such a dangerous man would have been watched closely and the evidence against him would be exhaustive.
