As reported earlier on OneNewsNow, The Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) is not happy with President Barack Obama's decision to endorse homosexual marriage.
Rev. William Owens, Sr., founder and president of CAAP, says Attorney General Eric Holder recently announced that he plans to speak with 350 black pastors to inform them of their rights to speak for President Obama without running afoul of the IRS. So, Owens reasons that members of his grassroots coalition also deserve to voice their concerns.
"When they wanted the blacks to vote for him, which they did 97 percent, they cooperated with him. And these are some of the leading pastors in the country," Owens reports. "I hope he gives us the same respect, although we are at odds on this particular issue. We just hope that he will give us the same respect that he has given the other people and meet with us and hear our voice."
The CAAP founder says his group is continuing its online petition drive, calling on black Christians to let the president know that they support traditional marriage. They hope to be able to present those signatures when they meet with him. The request has been submitted to the attorney general.
