Washington, DC – The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a coalition of 34,000 African American churches spanning 15 denominations and representing 15.7 million African Americans denounces the decision made by Gallaudet University officials to suspend Dr. Angela McCaskill for signing the petition to put the marriage referendum on the ballot. Dr. McCaskill was expressing her constitutional right on Question 6. Even though Dr. McCaskill has not made her opinions known on the issue of same-sex marriage, the actions taken against her amount to an unconstitutional witch hunt against those of us who dare to stand up for their faith. This bullying is a form of religious McCarthyism. NBCI believes that if Question 6 is passed such intimidation will only get worse.

The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) will hold a rally to protest the suspension of Dr. Angela McCaskill. Dr. McCaskill was suspended when she exercised her rights by signing the petition to put the marriage referendum on the ballot. NBCI stands with Angela McCaskill and demand that she be reinstated immediately.

The rally will be held October 25, 2012, 12 p.m., In front of Gallaudet University

Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative
