Segment tonight most of the polls show that African Americans will probably support President Obama next Tuesday by more than 90%.
But one African American bishop in Virginia's is voting Democrat.
He's a terrible mistake if you're a black American.
My name is -- EW Jackson chairman of ministers taking us today.
With a message to Christians in the black community.
It is time to end the slavish devotion to the Democrat party the Democrat party has created an unholy alliance.
Between certain so called civil rights leader this.
And Planned Parenthood.
We just killed unborn black babies -- tens of millions.
Planned Parenthood has been far more lethal to black lives than the kkk ever wants.
And the Democrat party NB a black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide.
They -- opposition to same sex marriage is the same as opposition to interracial marriage.
That is an insult to human intelligence.
It is a lot.
No Christians should support this yet the Democrat party has now declared same sex marriage an official part of its platform.
And black Christians remain in that party.
The civil rights establishment has embraced the lies and betrayed the black community and got all night.
For thirty pieces of silver from the Democrat party.
We as Christians ought to know better.
Shame on us while allowing ourselves to be sold to the highest bidder we belong to god.
Was that a react reverend Michael -- -- senior pastor at the first Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem New York.
And -- a job growth of Fox News entered the reverend -- begin with you your reaction I'm remember -- -- -- -- -- did you know he mentions thirty pieces of -- yet.
I wonder though who paid for that I want to hold his organization -- stand up for America really is because -- general public and he needs to just say that.
And if you say you condemn one party -- what is your constructive response to that.
But let's deal with the the issues specific criticisms IDC he's against abortion.
And he and he and look.
-- -- you're pro life or pro choice you have to know the Democratic Party has embraced Planned Parenthood.
And they are all in as they say.
On the abortion rights platform so does a bishop have a legitimate point there revenue well.
I think -- -- -- good at Bristol I think African Americans are intelligent enough.
To make the decision and as 95%.
Of our community has made a decision and -- -- -- the parts of public policy.
That the Democratic Party had no one agrees that all of the points in either party.
And so both people who didn't look like myself.
Who feel differently about abortion don't rejected democratic party for one plank and it's -- it's a big play it is a -- River while the bishop also objects to same sex marriage -- even more so he objects to equating that.
Into racial -- Yeah and he says that there'd just aren't any similarities because Warren is a skin color and the other is a -- stop and you set.
Camelot I say it is very difficult when you find yourself trying to compare who's -- -- -- who's oppressing his words and I think.
Buying and down those who seek to make the comparison between African American struggle and those in the -- from gay activists is that -- -- is that a legitimate.
I Paris I don't think it isn't -- -- those who believe that they believe this legitimate but I think that we get to a place where you begin.
To come pale -- it is always destructive because now you have persons.
Who have been systemically harmed and and in an injured in this country.
It's trying to get in the position we we see who's been hurt worse so I do you -- kind of agree with the bishop on this one.
No I do not agree this -- that one act because his his his stance which is quite venomous is that those who made the comparison right.
Are completely out of line I wouldn't go as far as habits of saying I'm saying is that when you find itself begin to compare all press and there's a problem but.
I think that there's another argument that they had not just with regard to interracial marriage a -- I think the issue was dealing with what is -- the -- the construct which is a notion.
The same sex marriage is compatible.
Two African American struggle you don't believe it is.
I would I would compare to any struggling everyone the president Democratic Party.
You can't say that the party platform has embraced that but certainly they've embraced gay marriage yet so it's -- -- -- bishop Jackson.
Believes that the Democratic Party is going against Christian -- yes yes -- you guys are both.
Christian pastor and and -- think the Democratic Party it is.
I any local.
I don't think he hit the thing I don't think when we begin to talk about politics and how we choose elected official would be president on the other federally elected official.
I don't know if historically in this country there's ever been a time we we just simply use as a litmus test one's religious.
Launching pad so to speak to determine whether or not that person is -- some -- and some don't some don't some right but let but the other.
I don't know the other part of this is this is not a choice between Democratic Party and perfection.
This is a choice between -- Democratic Party and the Republican Party who no one is arguing is offering reasonable choices for African American.
Which is why -- rejected so solidly I might obviously that recognized an African American community.
Well in 95% of our business -- a lesser of two evils here is a democratic boys.
These are the African I'm saying the Democratic Party has done enough.
To substitute just a -- It's pretty audiences were into the -- my argument would be and it would be for the sake of argument and that a vibrant economy.
That an economy based on capitalism and free flow -- Into the consumer's pocket to make the economy move.
Would benefit African Americans probably more than anyone else if that's what my argument would be if it -- if it occurred equally.
I mean to me that's deck Jack -- opportunity that opportunity to create but it.
I'll never happen it just has never had a that's why opera unemployment rate is always higher education rate is higher income gap is -- because these great victories did great American do is we share those values.
But they don't have.
And in real life.
-- so you say that the -- ship overdid it.
I think the bishop clearly is is biased because of the -- it was offering an alternative.
They're not to say there's some legitimacy in the way he goes about his admitted he could go up and I can get what you had went out identity without -- all went out but he basically saying in this speech.
Don't blindly follow this party if you're Christian.
Because it is taking some fun Christian stance on the basically saying that he supports the Republican yes and that's what he's in the question we'll be moral reasons -- -- -- -- he -- hardy.
Standings and upholds the the banner of Jesus Christ more -- -- Is that the Republicans want a Democrat I don't think any party upholds that and -- economic Catholic you know it would be hard for me to see.
Jesus Christ walking into a Planned Parenthood -- okay.
Other than to try to convert them.
And to -- and I think it also be difficult you know and that's what -- and maybe if you get back that would also be difficult for Jesus to walk through communities have been ravaged by poverty with policies that have been inflicted in the past upon.
Portman is cut right and that's why -- are -- -- to help those people.
It's very very very good discussion guys I appreciate very much receive.
