Democrat base opposes gay marriage

CBS News of WJZ-Baltimore reports:

When Obama announced that his position on same-sex marriage had  evolved, it outraged some African-American pastors like Pastor and Del.  Emmett Burns.

“He has said to his base, African-Americans, ‘I am going against your beliefs and your thoughts,’” Burns said.

He’s so opposed to same-sex marriage, he told church members he will  no longer support the president and now predicts Obama will lose the  election because of it.

California's Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage, passed, in part, because of very strong support (58% to 70%, depending on who estimates it) among Black voters who turned out in large numbers for that Nov. 4, 2008. vote.
