[Media Source*] (LA Times) Hat tip to Alpha Patriot for this story. It seems that conservative African Americans are getting organized, perhaps networking each other for a mutual cause. This is good to hear since the only voices that dominate the black community are leftist liberals who claim to represent their "people" and their causes (this black man laughs out loud). This gathering could spell trouble for the Democrats, who have been courting the black vote in order to boost their own standing.
The effort will be visible today at the Crenshaw Christian Center, one of Los Angeles' biggest black churches, headed by televangelist Frederick K.C. Price. More than 100 African American ministers are to gather in the first of several regional summits to build support for banning same-sex marriage a signature issue that drew socially conservative blacks to the Republican column last year.
Before the meeting, one prominent minister plans to unveil a "Black Contract With America on Moral Values," a call for Bible-based action by government and churches to promote conservative priorities. It is patterned loosely on the "Contract With America" that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich used 10 years ago to inaugurate an era of GOP dominance in Congress.
This sounds good to me. I wonder if there are any African American Bloggers out there?
Picture of the man leading the event:
The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson of Los Angeles says black preachers are moving toward the GOP.
It looks like some of the Democrats could be getting scared by this. LA Times reports:
"I am frightened by what is happening," said Rep. Major R. Owens, an 11-term Democratic congressman from New York who has been conferring with colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus. "Our party is in grave danger. This Republican movement is going to expand exponentially unless we do something."
I hope that the GOP start's rallying black conservatives across the nation. I wonder if there would be a way to help out in the Blogosphere? Selah!
