Well Carol since Christianity is in it's very essence liberal then why would black churches be voting against their conviction? It's the right wing so called Christians that have no convictions whatsoever.
Ralph Reed is a prime example. He was up to his neck in Jack Abramoff's casino scandal. On June 22, 2006 the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs released its final report on the scandal.[10] The report states that under the guidance of the Mississippi Choctaw tribe's planner, Nell Rogers, the tribe agreed to launder money because "Ralph Reed did not want to be paid directly by a tribe with gaming interests." It also states that Reed used non-profits, including Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform, as pass-throughs to disguise the origin of the funds, and that "the structure was recommended by Jack Abramoff to accommodate Mr. Reed’s political concerns." The Choctaw tribe of Mississippi needed to defeat a bill in the Alabama State Legislature which would allow casino-style games on dog racing tracks. This would have resulted in competition for their casino business. Reed had recently contacted Abramoff via email, looking for some help in establishing new business.
"Hey, now that I'm done with electoral politics, I need to start humping in corporate accounts! I'm counting on you to help me with some contacts."
—Ralph Reed to Jack Abramoff, via email, November 12, 1998
Reed proposed to Abramoff some work which he and his firm, Century Strategies, could perform. Reed could access "3,000 pastors and 90,000 religious conservative households" in Alabama, as well as "the Alabama Christian Coalition, the Alabama Family Alliance, the Alabama Eagle Forum,[and] the Christian Family Association." Reed would require a $20,000 per month retainer for his services.
Paul Crouch and is perverse "prosperity gospel" is another good example. The Trinity foundation which investigates religious fraud stated;
“Paul Crouch at TBN is the greatest proponent of the oldest heresy in the church — that gain is godliness,”
Pat Robertson is another good one. Speaking of his service in the Marine Corp during the Korean War he stated;
"The Division was in combat in the hot and dusty, then bitterly cold portion of North Korea just above the 38th Parallel later identified as the 'Punchbowl' and 'Heartbreak Ridge.' For that service in the Korean War, the Marine Corps awarded me three battle stars for 'action against the enemy.'"[
However, former Republican Congressman Paul "Pete" McCloskey, Jr., who served with Robertson in Korea, wrote a public letter which said that Robertson was actually spared combat duty when his powerful father, a U.S. Senator, intervened on his behalf, and that Robertson spent most of his time in an office in Japan. According to McCloskey, his time in the service was not in combat but as the "liquor officer" responsible for keeping the officers' clubs supplied with liquor. Robertson filed a $35 million libel suit against McCloskey in 1986. He dropped the case in 1988, before it came to trial and paid McCloskey's court costs. According to a newspaper report from 1986, Robertson confirmed elements of McCloskey's allegations and said that he never saw front-line duty.
Guy's like these are in it for the money and fools like you are only too glad to shovel it out to them.
Mind citing the source? Would be able to give a better response.

Phil should have just brushed over the subject lightly and moved on__he allowed the interviewer, Drew Magary, to shove it up "his" azz.

It's not a huge deal__no one really expected any better from a self proclaimed born again redneck__but Robertson put his network in a tough spot and there's the rub. It's different than Baldwin going ballistic on a paparazzi__Robertson was just sitting there calmly and honestly espousing his beliefs to a journalist___a fkn gossip journalist.

seems the queers get it done in a hurry.

give me a break. A&E knew there would be blowback. name one time in the past few years where the kind of statements he made didn't have repercussions.

A&E is in damage control mode. nothing to do with anything but societal pressure. it's not like they're going to lose the mainly republican audience for that show, so money is not the issue. the now accepted norm is the whole reason he was put on hiatus, and here is the proof....

64% approve of gay relationships. 31% don't. deal with it. you're outnumbered.

Nonsense!!!

Baldwin repeatedly made homophobe comments.

The worse was telling a known gay

"I would shove my foot up your azzz, but you would probably enjoy it."

Meanwhile, Progressive hypocrites said NOTHING!

The person who was told this protested loudly but GLADD ignored.

Few people heard of A&E prior to Duck Dynasty.

The Duck show with 11 million viewers is A&E 's money cow.

The Robertsons were multi-millionaires prior to the show and Duck Commander -which made them rich will be there without A&E
