Maryland Pastor Slams NAACP for Its Support of "Same-Sex Marriage"

CNS NEWS REPORTS: Pastor Derek McCoy, executive director of the Maryland Marriage Alliance, criticized the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) for its recent endorsement of same-sex marriage, calling it "unfortunate" and a clear signal that the association is "out of step" with its constituency.

The NAACP announced on May 19 that it supports "marriage" between homosexuals, 10 days after President Barack Obama announced that he supports "gay marriage."

Concerning the NAACP announcemnt, Pastor McCoy told, "Clearly, they're out of step with their constituency and their base."

"They issued a release -- which is absolutely opposed to one another -- saying they support same-sex marriage," said McCoy. "At the same time, they support religious freedoms and things of that nature, which clearly you're asking a large portion of their constituency and base to put aside their own deeply held religious beliefs."

"It's unfortunate that the NAACP has taken this position," said McCoy.
