Obama, I’ll ‘cling to my religion and guns’

President Obama is urging black voters to encourage their church congregation to support his reelection (not surprising). Why would a Christian church implore its members to support a politician whose views are antithetical to the church? Lets call the roll.
 
Same-sex marriage
Abortion
Forcing churches to comply with contraceptives
Removal of “In God We Trust” from our currency
Not giving Christianity the same protections as Islam in government policy and free speech

 
Is the black church so self-destructive that it is willing to sacrifice its theology to elect a politician who disparages and makes a mockery of the church?

Frankly, I would rather cling to my religion and guns than “hope for “change that would emasculate my religious and spiritual beliefs.
