‘Heart-Broken’ Black Pastors Want to Meet Obama Over Gay Marriage

From The Christian Post

Influential African-American pastors have requested Attorney General Eric Holder to grant them a meeting with President Barack Obama, saying he broke their hearts by endorsing gay marriage – “something that is simply wrong” – as a civil right.

“We pray for the President … President Obama is the fulfillment of our dreams for our sons — and he has broken our hearts by using his power and position to endorse as a civil right something that is simply wrong,” the Rev.

The coalition, which comprises of leaders of the black church and civil rights leaders who marched with the Rev.
