New Poll: Black Californians oppose gay marriage 2-1


The black church, both here and in Africa, has proved particularly resistant to the idea of redefining marriage. Or, as Bishop Robert Battle told the Marriage Tour rally in St. Paul today: “The African American church is firm on the biblical truth that marriage is one man and one woman.”
A new poll from Public Policy Polling shows that in California, 60 percent of African-Americans oppose gay marriage, while just 28 percent support it.  Leaders of the black church, like Bishop McKinney of the Church of God in Christ  in San Diego and others, are a big part of the reason why.
