    That’s always been a fine line the Dems walk with many Black Democrat politicians. Many tend to be Pastors and Reverends and have many of the same ideologies as those of their religious right peers. However, the Democratic party absolutely can’t afford to lose the minority vote, so often these non-party line stances are allowed to pass without rebuke. Pastor Burns chastised President Obama back in May when Obama came out in support of gay marriage and offered to pray for him. Obama’s stance really stuck out knowing he would be challenged by many Blacks and Latinos in the party. I am a Maryland resident, and sadly we are all too familiar with our unfortunate Pastor Burns. The other sad truth in Maryland is that the state is so blue, you have many Democrats here who are more socially right than Republicans in other states, it’s just par for the course in our political landscape. I applaud the stance of Ayanbadejo who continually proves to our fans that he is a very thoughtful citizen and consistently pursues and supports agendas that personally feel right to him. It is sad that Pastor Burns feels free speech is something only allotted for agendas that meet his definition of what is right or wrong.
