The Wake-up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Black Pastors Stand Against Obama on Gay "Marriage" Issue
The following is excerpted from “Black Pastors Oppose Gay ‘Marriage,’ Warn Obama,” CNSNews.com, July 31, 2012:
“The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) announced at the National Press Club on Tuesday that the grassroots group--comprised of the more than 3,000 members--is a launching of a national campaign to support marriage between one man and one woman and to oppose the Obama administration’s efforts to advance same Sex marriage. ‘The time has come for a broad-based assault against the power that be that wants to change our culture to one of men marrying men and women marrying women,’ CAAP President William Owens said at the press conference, held to announce the Marriage Mandate campaign, which includes a petition seeking 100,000 signatures pledging support for traditional marriage. ‘Mr. President, I’m not going to stand with you, and there are thousands of others across this country that are not going to stand with you with this foolishness,’ Owens said. ...
Owens said CAAP sent a letter to Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder in May asking for a meeting to discuss the gay marriage issue. ‘We wrote the president and Mr. Holder May the second, requesting an audience with him to discuss this very issue,’ Owens said. ‘He has not given us the courtesy of any reply. The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) consists of 3,742 African American pastors, and he has totally ignored us,’ Owens said.”
