NAACP Leader Resigns Over Same-Sex Marriage Support


Rev. Keith Ratliff

The NAACP may support gay marriage, but that doesn’t mean all its leaders do.

In fact, the Rev. Keith Ratliff, president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s Iowa-Nebraska conference and pastor of Maple Street Missionary Baptist Church in Des Moines, Iowa, has resigned from the organization "due to the NAACP’s position and support of same-sex marriage."

The NAACP released a resolution on May 19 supporting marriage equality. At a meeting of the 103-year old civil rights group’s board of directors, the organization voted to support marriage equality as a continuation of its historic commitment to equal protection under the law. ...

Mike, notice official of the NAACP? His political beliefs were obvious and he apparently supported Obama during his first try at the Presidency.
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
The Church and social responsibility have to be seen in light of the Great Commission. This has become a question in the Evangelical church. As individual Christians we are to be characterized by generosity, kindness, compassion, love. As a Church, Christ has already told us what to do. When Christ tells us we are to spread the Gospel, this does not involve developing or supporting social programs.
excerpt from the summary for, The Church and Social Responsibility

So, it would appear obvious that my church would fall into the group, which does not consider, social responsibility, part of the official church mission, though I can tell you now, there are many members who --individually-- that help out with various social programs.

People of different political persuasions (or parties ) have to remember a person is a fellow brother in Christ if he believes in the following, "Only Scripture," "Only Christ," "Only Grace," "Only Faith," and "To God Alone Be Glory"[/URL

This just goes to show that not all the Blacks are in lock step with the anti-GOD regime that is in power currently.

I will chide SA article selectors ever so slightly for the source they picked since it seem to have supported homosexual "marriage," by the amount of space given to the person who commented on the correct beliefs of Rev. Ratliff on this matter of The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin.

This should show many a person can may very well be a Christian even if many of his political beliefs differs from ours.

Does "Charisma" magazine support the Charismatics? A Look at the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement--Is It Biblical?
