Hah! Far Left Lapdogs NAACP Backs Gay Marriage

Hah! This far left group will stop at nothing to support Obama…

The former rights group, the NAACP, backed gay marriage today.
The Politico reported:

The board of the NAACP, one of the nation’s oldest and largest African American advocacy organizations, has passed a resolution supporting gay marriage in the wake of President Obama’s public endorsement of same-sex unions.

“The mission of the NAACP has always been to ensure the political, social and economic equality of all people,” board chair Roslyn M. Brock said in a statement following passage of the resolution on Saturday. “We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law.”

The chairman emeritus, Julian Bond, had already pledged his support earlier this week as part of a coalition of black leaders trying to tamp down speculation that Obama’s support of gay marriage would divide the black community.

The resolution and statement Saturday specifically noted that the group supports “civil marriage” for same sex couples, while respecting religious freedom — something the president also mentioned when announcing his stance.

“Civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law,” NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous said in the statement. “The NAACP’s support for marriage equality is deeply rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and equal protection of all people.”

This ought to go over well with their members.

    Not surprised. The NC chapter of NAACP was against the State Ammendment.

  • Mad Hatter

    I wonder if the Einsteins at the NAACP can point out where “gay marriage” is located at in the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    Just wondering.

  • Teamansam

    Good for them!

    And I thought you teabaggers believed in small government. Who is the government to tell gay folks they can’t get married.

    Oh wait I forgot…..JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Reverend billy-bob said Jesus hates “the gays” so we must oppose them or suffer hell.

    Lol you teabaggers

    One side needs a new tactic.

    Separation of church and state.
    The state has no right in marriage as that is holy union in the Bible and the state is promoting religion when it talks about marriage or even approving of it. Same sex or any sex.

    That cry does not seam to be anywhere when marriage in involved, They must be to busy looking for 100 year old crosses on pubic memorial to have removed.

    National Association of Always Complaining People. Racist organization, should be abolished.

    And Teamansam, get off of mommy’s computer. Just because she left it to service “Uncle Joe” to keep you in weed and Cheetos doesn’t mean you can play with her stuff. There’s a nice little moron, now scat!

  • old glazier

    AARP, NAACP, both used to stand for something American. Now just more liberal background noise.

    #7 – allow sexually active gay men to donate blood? You’re a fool. They are not discriminated against or singled out. There is actually a very long list of folks who are not allowed to donate blood:

    anyone who has sex with gay males or multiple partners, male or female
    anyone who has spent more than a certain amount of time outside the US or visited certain countries
    anyone with a tatoo or piercings other than ears
    anyone who has ever had a long list of diseases other than AIDS
    anyone with a blood hematocrit below a certain level
    IV drug users

    And there are others – those are just the ones I remember off the top of my head

    The rules are there for the protection of everyone. It isn’t just a matter of AIDS. There are many other blood borne diseases – hepatitis, malaria, a bunch of other stuff.

    We were for it before we were against it! Or against it before we were for it. Or something. Whatever he says.

    Not to worry, the voters who will decide the election are wising up to Obama’s record. And Obama’s already out there blaming the voters. Now I wonder how that might turn out … http://bit.ly/qVdDUt

    Are they now known as N double gay CP?

    Well they are a civil RIGHTS group, but they have thrown out what God says. I guarantee you this is not what the founders had in mind in the early 1900’s.

    Rev. Wright Urged to Stay Silent Until After 2012 (More from Ed Klein tapes)

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose “God damn America” sermon set off a firestorm during the 2008 campaign, agreed not to publish an account of the episode until after President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, according to an interview Wright conducted with the author of a new book on Obama. Wright said he made the decision at the urging of a friend and mentor, the prominent University of Chicago emeritus professor Martin Marty.

    In the interview, Wright told Ed Klein, author of The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, that he keeps a cardboard box of documents and notes detailing his experiences beginning in March 2008, when the controversy over his sermons began. “It’s a painful box to look at,” Wright said.

    “Marty had me over to his home for dinner in January [2010],” Wright told Klein. “He said to me, ‘Are you keeping notes on what’s happened to you in this Obama campaign?’ I said, ‘Yes, sir, I am.’ He said, ‘Don’t publish it until after the next election. They’ll think it’s sour grapes. Wait until after 2012.'”

    It was at that point, Wright told Klein, that he decided to leave the box untouched, at least for now. “I don’t look at the box,” Wright said. “I haven’t looked at it since I’ve been to Marty’s house.”

    “[Marty] said, ‘Don’t write that until after 2012,” Wright said. “I said, ‘I’m not.’ [He said] ‘Don’t publish it.’ [I said] ‘I’m not.’ I haven’t even looked at it. I’ve just put all of it in one box and said I would get to it later.”

    Wright’s description of his discussion with Marty is not included in the Klein book. But Klein, through his public relations representative, made the audio of his entire two-hour-and-forty-five minute interview with Wright available to The Washington Examiner.

    What is gay marriage anyhow? Two people of the same sex living together? Since when did two sodomites a marriage make? The same goes for lesbians. You can’t take the definition of marriage – the union between a man and a woman – and somehow apply it to something totally different and still call it marriage.
