Blacks, hispanics and most nonwhite people in the world are extremely intolerant of homosexuals as well as many of the other care free lifestyles that WHITE liberals in America and Europe like to enforce on everyone else. If you wonder why minorities are so attracted to the Democrat Party, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Democrat Party's stance on moral issues and everything to do with getting free handouts.
The funny thing is that in the last election concerning prop 8 in California that banned gay marriage, African americans were the only racial group that voted overwhelmingly to ban gay marriage. White, Asian, and Latino voters split down the middle on the issue. I have to admit it made me mad. They fought so hard during the civil rights movements to get equal rights and now that they have them, they want to deny them to another group (at least in California).

Sir - You are clearly having problems with reading comprehension. I was responding to a comment about the geographic distribution of evangelicals. I have no idea what you are babbling about. Please try again.

Anywhere that is a majority black is not evangelical? I'm not so sure about that, it seems more often than not, black people are evangelical Christian (Baptist, Pentecostal, etc.).

I'm not understanding you. A place is not "evangelical" or "not evangelical". It simply has a high number of them, or not.

The point is that statistically, the places with the highest numbers of evangelicals in the south, are also the same areas of the south with the fewest % of blacks. Oklahoma, northwest Texas, the hills of Arkansas, east Tennessee, North Alabama and Mississippi, upstate of SC, western NC, western VA, etc.

Where I am from, where blacks are the majority, they are mostly AME, which is a type of Methodist church, and is not evangelical. Or they are mainline Baptist, which is not evangelical. And contrary to what Captain Freakout thought I said in an earlier post, I am NOT making a comment as to whether or not blacks in general (evangelical or not) are accepting of homosexuals.
