    Dear Mr. King:

    I keep watching news reports about how African Americans who disagree with the President on his stance on gay marriage are going to stick by him. This is absolutely not true! I am a Christian before I am Black or female and therefore, God's Word will always come first in my life! I cannot vote for someone who supports ungodliness!

    Also, as a Democrat, there is no way on earth that I am switching to the Republican Party because they're ungodly too! They have disrespected the president when the Scriptures state that our leaders/rulers are to be respected. They've undressed him and put him in witchdoctor clothes with a bone through his nose (racism); they've slandered him by calling him a Muslim (he says he's a Christian) and a Kenyan although he was born in America, and they are selfish in that they don't care about the lack of services that will continue to affect the have-nots under their policies; and Romney is a psychopath – how many people do you know lie as easy as others breathe – even though his previous statements/positions are all on film??!!!

    It is a sin to back either party in their wrongdoing:

    Romans 1:18-32 talks about God's wrath against sinful man (mostly deals with sexual perversion) and the punishment that's coming to those who commit such sins and those who approve of those who practice them.

    Ephesians 5:6-7 – Wrath of God is coming against those who are disobedient – Don't be partners with them

    1 Timothy 5:22 – Don't share in the sins of others

    With this being the case, three generations of women in my family will not be going to the polls in November!!!

    I sure wish sir, that you would could come and interview people like us instead of believing what the pundits are saying because the President's decision is going to affect him in more ways than he's actually prepared for.

    While I appreciate the analysis of the political consequences of Obama's decision to come out in favor of same sex marriage, it would be nice if there was a discussion of the merits of his position. Would like to see information related to laws agains interracial marriage and other laws regulating marriage, and how this form of discrimination fits in the context of other forms of discrimination, and the merits of a ban on same sex marriage in the context of conservative arguments of less government and more liberty and freedom. Ultimately this isn't a political issue ... it's an issue of equality.
