Pastor Loses 2/3rds of His Congregation After Supporting Gay Marriage

African-Americans voted against gay marriage in California 70%-30%. This church voted about 66% against:
The reverend of a St. Paul church says he needs to raise $200,000 to pay off a church loan after most of his followers left because of his support for gay marriage.

The Rev. Oliver White runs Grace Community United Church of Christ in St. Paul. The 69-year-old said he needs to raise the money by June 30.

“We lost our income when we lost a number of people from our congregation.” White said.

White said two-thirds of his followers left after he said he supported same-sex marriage, and said he was against the marriage amendment that will be up for a vote in November.
This is why Eric Holder, the ACLU, the IRS, and others are counseling black pastors in how they can support Obama in church without violating the law. Obama is clearly afraid that the gay marriage issue has turned off significant numbers of his black supporters.

If the one in three who stayed are anything like your typical liberal, they're tight-fisted with their charitable donations.

Reverend White may have lost two-thirds of his congregation, but he'll be missing four-fifths of his cashflow.
