Black churchgoers break with leading Democrats on marriage amendment
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Bishop Phillip Davis had not planned to talk about marriage and politics, but five minutes into his sermon at Nations Ford Community Church in Charlotte he changed his mind.
Not only should the 6,000 members of the overwhelmingly African-American congregation pray with one voice, he said, come May 8 they should vote with one, too.
It will be interesting to see how far the measure goes without opposition or when the conversation will stop on the vote.
