Gay Marriage and a Moral Minority
We now know that blacks probably didn’t tip the balance for Proposition 8. Myth busted. However, the fact remains that a strikingly high percentage of blacks said they voted to ban same-sex marriage in California. Why?

Thanks for posting this. It's something that's been troubling me and it's nice to see some light shed on the problem.

Hmm... I'm not American, but the article seems intelligently written to me.

Why on earth the preachers of Christianity in America are so SPECIALLY obsessed with homosexuality is beyond me. Don't they have other things to preach, like love thy neighbour and be charitable to the poor children? I've already memorized the "repertoire" of a certain kind of over-zealous Christians - I'd better not quote it here and now.

This article jives comepletely with my experience working with Black women in the South. When SC voted to ammend the Constitution for a gay marriage ban I had a coworker very cheerfully and very calmly explain that even though she liked me and my partner well enough, her Minister was the one getting her into heaven and he said to vote for the ban.
