Perkins: Marriage May Decide Election

"Despite what many pundits say, social issues continue to be bridge issues--not wedge issues. Polls continue to show deep opposition to same-sex 'marriage' among African Americans--with just 40% in support. More than 3,700 black pastors have called on President Obama to retract his statement that "gay marriage is a civil right." Millions of voters clearly feel abandoned by President Obama, who once told Pastor Rick Warren that 'I believe marriage is the union between a man and a woman.'

"In the 2004 election, results clearly show President Bush carried the pivotal state of Ohio because of his support for the marriage amendment on the ballot. With marriage referendums on the ballot in four states and continued backlash to President Obama's same-sex 'marriage' endorsement, marriage may once again emerge as the decisive rather than the divisive issue of this election." - Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via press release.

NOTE: Does this mean we can blame Dubya's second term on Ken Mehlman?
