The Righteous Reverends

I keep hearing African American pastors say they may not be able to support Obama, now that he's said what he thinks about gay people and marriage.
You have the tax cuts for billionaires, tax breaks for Exxon, repeal of Obamacare, and the Ryan budget on one side, with deep cuts in aid to the poor and unemployed, cuts in aid for the hungry and homeless, and denial of care to the uninsured sick.
On the other side, you have a man saying he thinks gay people should be able to marry.
That's a hard choice for these Christians? 
Since when isn't such bigotry a sin too, I wonder?

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
