According to TheRightScoop.com via the Washington Examiner, African American Pastor Patrick Wooden recorded a radio ad for the National Organization for Marriage that discouraged the North Carolina black community from voting to re-elect President Barack Obama because of the revelation of his stance on gay marriage.

"The goal of our advertising campaign is to issue a wake-up call to the African American community in North Carolina that President Obama does not represent the values that they have fought hard to protect," said National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown. He also added, "We urge all North Carolinians to join Dr. Wooden in rejecting the anti-family policies of President Obama this November." This advertisement comes on the heels of a statement of non-support by the Coalition of African American Pastors under the leadership of Reverend William Owens.
The courageous stand taken by Dr. Wooden, the National Organization for Marriage, Reverend Owens, and the Coalition of African-American Pastors is in direct opposition to the religious intolerance exhibited by the mayors of Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C. These men of God have elected to stand for God's righteousness rather than blindly voting on the basis of race. According to Peter Kirsanow at The National Review Online "on the national level, Democrats typically get around 90 percent of the black vote, even when a black man isn’t running for president as a Democrat. Al Gore got 92 percent of the black vote in 2000; John Kerry got 88 percent in 2004", which like it or not, suggests an almost blind allegiance of the African-American community to the Democratic party even though according to Russ Paelli at russp.us, that "the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress. In the House, 80 percent of the Republicans and 63 percent of the Democrats voted in favor. In the Senate, 82 percent of the Republicans and 69 percent of the Democrats voted for it."
