In an Apr. 10 interview with the homosexual magazine The Advocate, Sen. Barack Obama said that most black pastors are "homophobic". His reasoning was that such messages are coming from the pulpits of black churches because "most African-American churches are still fairly traditional in their interpretations of Scripture."
In other words, Senator Obama (who praised his own Pastor, Jeremiah Wright in interview for his views on homosexuality) believes that the Bible's clear teaching on this issue should be ignored or treated like Silly Putty to be twisted however one likes on issues. This may explain his comment that Christ's Sermon on the Mount was a basis for his support of same-sex marriage and his desire to overturn the Federal DOMA statute signed by President Clinton.
In response, Former NFL player and Senior Pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington, Ken Hutcherson has told CNS news, "The new definition of 'homophobic' means anyone who stands against homosexuality as a sin is homophobic. That gives two choices to African-American pastors. They can either be Scriptural and demand righteousness from their flock, or they can drop Scripture and righteousness and support homosexuality."
