Black Church Leaders: Democratic Party 'Asks for Everything, Gives Nothing'

“Democrats take the black vote for granted [and have] sold out the black community and our Christian heritage.”

Leaders of the black church in America are reminding black voters that the Democratic Party has "sold out the black community and our Christian heritage,” and they are urging blacks across the country to abandon the Democratic Party this election day.

In new videos, Rev. William Owens and his wife Dr. Deborah Owens of the Coalition of African American Pastors express frustration at the “one-sided” relationship between the black community and Democrats in America, according to Breitbart.

“As someone who wants to see our community grow stronger and more prosperous, and who wants to see family and faith respected and preserved, I find that the Democratic Party no longer has room for me,” says Rev. Owens. “I realized that my relationship with the Democrats was completely one-sided. They asked for everything – support, votes, loyalty. And gave nothing in return.”

Owens instead is endorsing Donald Trump for president, and urges black Americans to “reclaim our power as voters.” It’s necessary, he says, to “demonstrate that we won’t allow ourselves to be used.”

In a separate video, Deborah Owens says “President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage and all things LGBT was the end of the road for me.”

The Democrats’ platform is “anti-life, anti-traditional marriage, anti-Christ, and anti-religion,” and “all but mocks God and those who believe in God. Democrats take the black vote for granted,” and have “sold out the black community and our Christian heritage.”

Exactly right. Time for some hope and change for black Americans.
