Why are black Christians still voting for Obama?

Yesterday, during a campaign stop in Milwaukee, the POS got a plug from baseball great Hank Aaron.

Aaron said “I am humbled and honored to share this stage with” Obama, and asked his fans help the POS “hit a grand slam” so “he can continue to move our country forward.”

If the POS moves our country any more forward than he has, America will go right over the cliff.

What is wrong with blacks like Aaron? Is he senile? Does he not know about the $16+ trillion national debt, the 46 million Americans on food stamps, Social Security Disability that will run out of cash in 4 years, the debacle Obama has made of our foreign policy and foreign relations, especially in the Muslim Middle East where our embassies are under siege?

Black Conservative Lloyd Marcus doesn’t get it either. I agree with him: It’s a spiritual problem.

I am on the road touring with Tea Party Express. In my hotel room, I caught an interview with first lady Michelle Obama on “Lift Every Voice”, a faith-based program on BET (Black Entertainment Television). I was amazed at how the black host and program producers portrayed Mrs. Obama and her husband as the couple they want to believe them to be – that is, strongly committed Christians.

In reality, Obama is the most anti-Christian president in U.S. History. Obama’s behavior is irrelevant to the TV program producers. I felt like I was watching an episode of the Twilight Zone in which everything was the opposite of reality.

What on earth is going on in the hearts and minds of most black Americans in regard to Obama? Why are a majority of blacks apparently incapable of honestly accessing President Obama’s job performance?

In past articles, I blamed The Black Code (never side with whites against a fellow black) and plain old basic black racism for black America’s blind loyalty to Obama. However, I must confess that I find myself wondering if something more sinister figures into the mix; a spiritual thing.

The Bible says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Is black America bewitched by Obama? Frankly, I do not know. All I know is something really strange is going on in the psyche of many of my fellow blacks regarding Obama, making it impossible for them to honestly critique his job performance or who he is as a person.

For example: A black Christian minister friend is a hard-core liberal Democrat. And yet, he voted for George W. Bush in protest of the Democrats embracing the homosexual agenda. I informed my friend that along with supporting same-sex marriage, Obama has pledged to be an advocate for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. Knowing that my Christian friend is pro-life, I informed him that not only does Obama support abortion, he supports infanticide. And finally, I shared how 40 Catholic organizations are suing the Obama administration for mandating in Obamacare that Christian institutions fund abortion services.

One would assume that since my friend voted against his party in favor of Christian principles in the past, he would most assuredly vote against them again, given their extreme anti-Christian agenda. Wrong. My black Christian friend is voting for Obama, again.

Here are excerpts from his reply: “I will point out that Bush was supposed to advocate and make laws to stop these things. I voted for him to do so; he didn’t. The issues now are more crucial than the issues identified by you; and while I have not deviated from my stance against these things you name I am force to choose between the lesser of evils. I will assure you that voting for Romney/Ryan will not change these situations any more than voting for Bush did (plus Ryan lied so much even Fox News had to dis him). What will happen however will be that Republican economic principles will hurl us into a worldwide depression so deep it will destroy the world economy as we know it and I add before its time.

He is a president controlled – as every president has been – by powers beyond his power to control from a figurehead position (money rules our political system). This nation will be judged for what its leaders have allowed and I recognized that there are no clean hands here even the ones screaming Christ Our Lord from every campaign perch and every so-called Christian pulpit.”

While dressing his racism up in a nice intellectual well-reasoned-sounding package, clearly, my friend has sold his soul to the devil of skin-color.

So, according to this black minister of God, sacrificing the lives of innocent babies and ignoring the Bible’s opposition to homosexual marriage are lesser evils than allowing Romney/Ryan to win the White House. Dear Lord!

Mitt Romney will defeat Barack Obama in November. America will begin to heal, and we will have another black president someday.

But, what about Obama’s legacy in regards to how his presidency impacted black America? Will Obama leave blacks striving for the highest ideals as did MLK? Unfortunately not. Obama will leave office with blacks behaving at their monolithic worse; voting skin-color over innocent life, national security, the economy and even their once sacred relationship with Christ.

Black America stooped this low once before with their monolithic celebration of OJ Simpson getting away with practically beheading his wife, the mother of his children. But then, she was white.

I am confident that black America will eventually recover from the stains on its character resulting from its shameful, monolithic racist behavior, rallying around the unworthy likes of OJ and Barack Obama.

America desperately longs for a “true leader” to bring us together as a nation. This person’s gender and race are irrelevant. What matters most is his or her character.

And if blacks vote for Obama solely because he’s black, despite differences in fundamental values, doesn’t that make blacks RACISTS?

Obama is NOT BLACK; he is a MULATTO. Something on the same lines of a MULE!


Well said Hardnox. There is far too much emphasis on the negative in our national discourse concerning the black community and race relations. Of course it is far from being a bed of roses, there are plenty of thorns, but what is badly needed, is hope, just not the Obama version. Sadly, all the race hustlers – the Al Sharptons, Jessie Jacksons, have brought on the divisiveness and derailed the train of MLK’s dreams, and with the collusion of many a white leftist. The politics of victimhood, which only further enslaves the black community to the plantation of the Democrat… Read more »


Like MLK said, not by the color of your skin, but by the content of you charactor.’ What’s the content of your character?


In today’s America, Christians voting for Obama makes about as much sense as Jews voting for Hitler!


Absolutely Joe! His pro-abortion agenda, the killing of millions of babies and his war on people of faith, especially his war against the Catholic Church, should instruct all Christians not to vote for this narcissistic self-made king. Frankly, knowing his pro-death agenda, I believe it is a grave sin for any Christian to vote for Obama.


5 trillion was added under Bush. The USA spent 40 years with a Fed Reserve that printed money. A line of Presidents (both R and D) that waged war and built weapons of destruction. The jobs were off-shored, along with the elite’s capital and profits until it was outside the reach of the IRS. The Congress spends money it doesn’t have on programs that support (sometimes bailout) the elite, and the Congress writes laws that protect the elite, and reduce the tax liability for corporations, and billionaire individuals. It has finally fallen apart, fell apart under Bush, he tried to… Read more »


I’m late with this but my take is:


I agree with much of your comments deeply. It’s sad to say that any of my fellow African Americans are ignorant to Obama’s real agenda. In fact many whites for that matter. Obama has people in high places backing him. His track record which always seems to be forgotten is horrible. Perhaps when Obama says he is Christian he is making a clear statement that he is like Christ, thus (in his opinion) he is speaking they the truth saying he is a Christian. But no one seems to understand this dangerous statement. More concerning is most Christian don’t understand… Read more »


I just found this yesterday and it is fascinating. I’m beginning to see that uninformed people vote as they themselves are. If they are racist and unprincipled, then they vote for candidates who bring out the racism and unprincipled behavior in themselves. If they are dishonest with themselves, then they vote for someone who is also dishonest.

In rare instances, a candidate comes along who brings out the idealistic and visionary qualities of people, like Reagan, and they respond to that, but mostly it appears they vote for the person who brings out their negative qualities.
