Tonight at 11: Anti-Obama preacher hits the streets of Richmond

with 4 comments

UPDATE:  See Sarah Bloom’s full story on NBC12.com

Sarah Bloom has the story tonight on NBC12 at 11.

This preacher, Rev. Shirley Snead,  vows to stand at the corner of 18th and Broad in Shockoe Bottom everyday until the election, telling people to not vote for President Barack Obama. She said the president lost her support after he came out in support of gay marriage.

Is she an outlier or an extreme represenation of a potential problem for the president when it comes to gay marriage and the African-American church?

We examine every angle tonight at 11 on NBC12.

Feel free to tell us what you think on the NBC12 Facebook page.

  1. Why is this woman quoting from what the church calls the Olld Testament even though the church has taught for more than 2,000 years that all we have to do is believe that an innocent man died for the sins of the world? Can’t have it both ways.

  2. Why be so up in arms about gay marriage but condone pre marital sex, changing the sabbath to Sunday, celebrating Xmas, easter, halloween and not keeping the commandments as christ and every other biblical figure did. I’m willing to bet that this woman left from that Exxon and went straight to the barbeque trailer on Main st.

    Wait a minute, wasn’t it Paul that said that women couldn’t be preachers (1 Corinthians 14:34-35)? So where does this woman get the authority to speak at all on biblical matters? An abomination speaking on abominations. Let the gays marry, let the pork eaters eat pork and the sabbath breakers continue to break the sabbath. It will be easier for true christians to know who to steer clear of.

  3. ‘Let us not…judge one another anymore…’ Romans 14:13 KJV

    Paul writes: ‘Let us not therefore judge one another anymore: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.’ The Bible says, ‘He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause of stumbling in him.’ (1 John 2:10 NKJV) Do your attitudes and actions strengthen others or cause them to stumble?

    I agree with Yahel, we should not judge anybody because we all have sin and fall short of His glory. God bless this woman and please show her her wrongs.
