Texas Black Pastors urge people to vote in November

In an effort to combat a recent rise from African American pastors (The Coalition of African-American Pastors) who are urging their congregation not to vote because of President Obama’s position on gay marriage, San Antonio pastors have gone on record to speak out on the issues of gay marriage, women’s rights, healthcare and your civic duty to vote.

Bishop David M. Copeland of New Creation Christian Fellowship, says “The President is not your pastor in chief but the President of all Americans.”

Pastor Kenneth Kemp of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, says “We must respect women’s rights for equal pay for equal work and access to care.”

Bishop Alfred Blue of Family Life International Ministries, comments, “We have a civic duty according to the word of God and we have a right to be heard.”

Voters are encouraged to review this video collection of some of the most outspoken pastors in San Antonio at www.blackvideonews.com and the Black Video News YouTube channel.
