(From the National Black Church Initiative)

‘We have a 25% unemployment rate’

Washington, DC – The National Black Church Initiative, a faith-based coalition of 34,000
churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans, is sad to see that
the Obama administration is sending the gay marriage political trail balloon up again. We love
our gay brother and sisters, but the black church will never support gay marriage. It is and it
always will be against the ethics and teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The church believes that anyone who violates the teachings of Christ should be denied the right
to communion. President Obama is using the Vice-President Biden and Secretary of Education
Duncan as trail balloons.
NBCI begs President Obama in Christ not to declare his support for same-sex marriage. It would harm his soul and undermine his Christian witness.
Rev. Anthony Evans, President of NBCI says “the current move by the Obama administration onsame sex marriage will cost him support from the black church. The administration knows alltoo well that even though we love the President, the black church will never support same sexmarriage. They must stop taking black voters for granted. We view this as pandering to the gaycommunity after they have done more for them than for the black community. We do not needto talk about same sex marriage. The black community only wants to talk about jobs, jobs and jobs.”
The President and the Democratic Party should also be prepared to lose 15 to 25 percent of the
Black Christian vote. The Black Church will never support anyone or any issues that go against
our personal faith and belief in God, Christ Jesus and the Bible.
We are appealing to President Obama to use your energy to bring jobs to our community. Black
unemployment is 25%, including those who have given up looking for work. 70% of black youth
do not have jobs and there is 50% black male unemployment in every major American city. We
do not want your administration to be only concern with gay rights, how about our rights —
Trayvon Martin and our black families.
We too are Americans.
