Why did Senator John Kerry feel it necessary yesterday in soliciting black votes to play up his opposition to gay marriage? In a conference call with 2000 black ministers, Kerry "made a point of mentioning his opposition to gay marriage, amid concerns by many Democrats that the party was losing support among conservative black Christians over this and other cultural issues." NYT

 

Fair weather friend, eh? And how about those blacks, who should know bigotry better than any other minority group?

I am not happy to hear he did that. But he was apealing to their Orthodox Christian beliefs, not their race. He would have likely used the same strategy with any traditionally Democratic clergy.

I think they are smart enough to know what he was doing. Blacks aren't as blind as you think they are. Frankly, I doubt seriously that many if nay Black Clergy were actually considering supporting Bush.

The intereting thing is that John Kerry is no more pro Gay marriage than George Bush. This is a man who has made a life "hobby" of pandering to the poor and using his "affluence" to help the less enlightened. He is a liar, opportunist and for him the glass is always half empty! Don't worry, the suffering will soon be over when GWB wins and Kerry can crawl back under his senatorial rock with Tess Heinz and Ted Kennedy!}(
