The board of the NAACP, the “nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization,” endorsed marriage equality at a meeting this afternoon. The move comes 10 days after President Obamaannounced his support of same-sex marriage.
The NAACP’s move comes as attitudes about gays and lesbians in the African American community are changing rapidly. A recent poll found that 54% of African Americans supported President Obama’s recent decision.
The NAACP Board of Directors has just endorsed marriage equality unequivocally. Only two opposed! An historic moment.
Who wants to bet that the Conservative [Christian] Media will deride the NAACP as a “bunch of pervert-coddlers and immoral filth peddlers for the ‘(radical) homosexual agenda?’” I bet it will happen, as soon as later this afternoon or in your pulpits tomorrow.
