Black Churches Blast Obama
The Rev. Anthony Evans, who heads the National Black Church Initiative, says Obama "has violated the Christian faith" by failing to uphold Jesus' teaching that marriage is between a man and a woman.
The Justice Department announced Wednesday that, at Obama's direction, it would not defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act in a court case where it's being challenged.
As a result, Evans says black churches must "reassess their extraordinary support for him."
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says Obama is still "grappling" with his personal views on same sex marriage, but has long opposed the federal law as unnecessary and unfair.
