NOM Political Director: 'Not a chance in God’s green earth that African-Americans support same-sex marriage'

by Jeremy Hooper

This quote, from the former Prop 8 campaign head and current political Director for the National Organization For Marriage, is almost too unbelievable for words:

A Washington Post-ABC News poll released Wednesday put support for gay marriage at 53 per cent, its highest level yet. Opposition fell to a new low of 39 per cent. The increase in support was driven by an 18-per-cent jump (to 59 per cent) among African-Americans, but the small sample size of black voters may have skewed the results.

“There is not a chance in God’s green earth that African-Americans support same-sex marriage,” Frank Schubert of the National Organization for Marriage said in response to the poll. (Blacks have traditionally opposed gay marriage more than whites.)

This offensively monolithic claim from a spokesman for an organization that has admitted it wants to "drive a wedge between gays and blacks." And an organization, it must be noted, that does not have one single African-American staff member (at least not in a leadership/outreach role).

Guess President Obama is president of the U.S. that exists on God's purple Earth.
