Black Pastors Tell Worshippers Not To Vote: Old Mormon Ban Disturbs Them – History of Radically Racists Democrats? Not So Much

Some Black Pastors are telling their congregants to stay home on election day. Obama supports same-sex marriage and Mormons at one time, had a ban on Black men being in the Mormon “priesthood.” Apparently Black Pastors can’t figure out what to do, and certainly cannot remember the voting records of their beloved Democrats. If an old ban on something the Mormon church once did based on racism, trumps 99% of most of these congregations supporting radically racist Democrats their entire lifetimes, they are idiots. If you want to comment on the following and actually have a fact disputing it, please do. If you have no facts, but want blame Republicans for racism, move on. The story of the “stay at home pastors is here – but please read the FACTS below.”

  • The Democrats are giving them free money, housing, etc… Letting Blacks cut in the head of the line. So Blacks will vote Democrat. Plus with a black President, I’m sure that 99% will vote for Obama.

    • findalis, and letting the New Black Panther Party stand in front of polls with night sticks.

      • Maggie, saw that the Black Panthers (is that a racist statement like the word Chicago is?)are planning to do the same this election since they got away with last time..

  • Not Likely

    When are wingnuts like you going to learn American history? Yes, the Democratic party used to be segregationist. That changed. Over half a century ago. Everyone knows that the bigots ran to the Republican party no matter how much you want to ignore facts.

    • Not Likely, what everyone knew back then didn’t change a thing. They voted Democrat then and now. They’ve always voted Democrat. Take a look at how the blue governed states are doing next to the red governed states.

    • Not Likely, Black Pastors forget the economy and their jobless misery, but don’t like gay marriage, so now it’s a big quandry: once upon a time Mormon’s didn’t allow Black in the “priesthood,” so just don’t vote. How smart is that? It’s probably quite smart for my side. How about yours?

    • Chris in N.Va.

      Yo, you got any “facts” that “everyone knows” to trot out to support that worn-out claim?

      You know, something like the list that Maggie presented in the article?

      We’ll be waiting….
