Raleigh, N.C. — The National Organization for Marriage is using a prominent African American pastor in a radio ad urging President Barack Obama's defeat this fall. From a blog post on the official NOM site:
"Today, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) launched a radio advertisement in the Raleigh, North Carolina media market featuring Dr. Patrick Wooden, a prominent African American pastor, urging African Americans to say "no more" to President Barack Obama in light of his recent endorsement of homosexual marriage. NOM plans to spend $34,000 on the advertisement in the Raleigh media market, which is home to 40 percent of the state's African American population. If proven successful, NOM plans to roll out the advertisement in markets across North Carolina, a key presidential swing state."
In the ad, Wooden says that Obama has "turned his back on the values of our community" by supporting same sex marriage. Obama took that stand the day after North Carolina voters added an amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman to the state constitution.
