Black Pastors Challenge Obama:"The time has come for a broad-based assault against the powers that be"

Christian Post is reporting "A black pastor who is part of a conservative group that announced the launching of a nationwide effort against President Barack Obama's support for same-sex marriage has stated that the issue is "only going to increase" in importance."

The Rev. William Owens, Jr., head of the "Mandate for Marriage" initiative and son of the Rev. William Owens, Sr., the founder and president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP), told The Christian Post about the growing importance of the issue at an event on Tuesday.

"It's only going to increase because the very core of America is founded upon Judeo-Christian beliefs. That's debatable to some people but you can't do away with history," said Owens, Jr.

During the question-and-answer segment, one woman in the audience asked the Rev. Owens Sr. about what God believes about polygamy and slavery, to which Owens Sr. responded that those were not topics of the press conference. Another in the audience, a young man, questioned Owens, Sr. about his statement that President Barack Obama supported pedophilia, asking him to provide evidence of this. Owens, Sr. replied that he did not believe Obama supported pedophilia, but that rather by supporting same-sex marriage Obama was making it easier for pedophilia to become more socially acceptable.
