The conservative niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. argues that President Obama has done little for Black America. She opines that conscience, not skin color, should prevail: "The damage to natural marriage and family that he is attempting to inflict [with his support for gay marriage] is going to be devastating to black Americans. We are all concerned about the economy right now. When natural marriage is destroyed, the doors are flung wide open to divorce, a costly venture that I know about firsthand. The suffering children experience is amplified as they lose their fathers. Society suffers financially from these behaviors that go against God’s law. If we want our lives to be blessed and our pocketbooks to be blessed, we must vote God’s values."
