African Americans were taken in by a “con” game by Republicans last November former presidential candidate Al Sharpton said. Speaking to parishioners at Atlanta’s Butler Street Christian Methodist Episcopal on Sunday, Sharpton said Bush manipulated the gay marriage debate to draw attention away from the Iraq war and his domestic problems.
“I think George Bush manipulated a lot of religious feelings about marriage when the president has little or nothing to do with marriage,” Sharpton said. “The president cannot order what marriage is for men or women,” Sharpton said.
“It was the place for a debate on Iraq, he’s in charge of the military; health care, he’s in charge of that; on Social Security, he’s in charge of that,” he told church goers. “But we should not relinquish the morality of the church to the office of president. He has nothing to do with that.”
Black “leaders” like Wooden are the problem, and those that follow them will drift to the GOP. It’s part of the Rovian plan to divide and continue to conquer. Listen to Wooden’s filth: “We have to block the use of euphemisms when we talk about homosexuals,” Wooden said. “They are not gay. We’ve got to use terms like ‘deviant’ and ‘abomination.'” The News and Observer article. With messages like that, it’s no wonder you’ve got black men running on the down low.
