Every Detroit church I know of supported Obama. Despite his stance on abortion and gay rights, which the black church has historically opposed. I listened to the Rush Limbaugh show one day and he was talking about Obama and a black woman called in. During their conversatiion, he asked her if Obama could do anything wrong in her eyes, which she replied that no he couldnt.
I know there are blacks that will criticize Obama, if its something to criticize, but the majority of blacks I meet, and listen to on the radio, like Steve Harvey or Michael Baisden, would never criticize anything Obama did. And alot of black people that praise Obama, felt like George Bush was the anti-christ and that everything he did was wrong, no matter how right it was, simply because he’s George Bush.[/quote]
Give am 1500 a listen. I don’t know their schedule though. Don’t get me wrong. I said several and there are hundreds of mostly black churches in Detroit so the % is small. I was citing that source to make a point about the difference between identifying with a group based on something like race and identifying with a worldview based on principles.
There was one black Detroit area preacher on during the campaign, can’t remember his name now, Earl something I think, I posted about it at the time, but anyway, WOOOOWEEEEE!!! This guy was blasting Obama with a biblical and historical carpet bombing campaign that rivaled anything Limbaugh or Levin could ever muster. The point is that Obama zombie-ism is not universal among black people.
Bill makes a good point about blacks and democrats too. However that sentiment is not universal either as he points out. If you want to see some blacks and other “minorities” who really break the mold see here:
I posted this in another thread as well actually.
