Jesus did tell people to repent of their sins, and He did not abolish the Law of God. "Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law, or the prophets; I am not come to destory, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." (Matt 5:17-18). The woman caught in adultry to "Go and sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you" (Jn 8:11). Christ never directly confronted many sins, but He in no way endorsed/allowed them. That's a pretty pathetic argument you make there. He also said if you love Him, you'll keep His Commandments - John 14:21

President Obama's affirmation of gay marriage threatens to undermine the near-monolithic black support Obama enjoyed in 2008. Several members of the black clergy now say they intend to sit out the presidential election. One poll from last November found black opposition to gay marriage at 58 percent, higher than the rest of the country, which is about evenly split.

The real question is this: What took black church leaders so long to reconsider their near blind support for the Democratic Party?

The historical strength of black churches has been that of a moral and spiritual refuge in a once-hostile country...
