COMMENTARY: Rev. William Owens Slanders Obama

  • It’s hard to figure out exactly what motivated Rev. William Owens to compare President Barack Obama to “Judas” on national television.

    Owens, the leader of the Coalition of African American Pastors, is angry at Obama for supporting same-sex marriage, but the timing of Williams’ noisy diatribe raises questions about his end game and his politics.

    To call Obama’s actions “evil” seems overly dramatic, wrong-headed and misguided. Moreover, Owens’ suggestion that Obama is in jeopardy of losing the November election because black voters are outraged, is ridiculous.

    “He has not done a smart thing and it might cost him the election,” Owens told reporters this week. "Mr. President, I'm not going to stand with you, and we have thousands of others across this country that are not going to stand with you in this foolishness."

    “So the President has forgotten the price that was paid. People died or they suffered or they gave their blood to have equal rights in the United States,” Owens said at The National Press Club in Washington. “And for the homosexual community and for the President to bow to the money, as Judas did with Jesus Christ, is a disgrace and we are ashamed. We will not take it back. We will not back down. We are going to take action across this country to change the course that this President has us in.”

    But Owens completely crossed the line when he suggested that Obama condoned child molestation.

    “If you watch the men who have been caught having sex with little boys,” said Owens, “you will note that all of them will say that I was molested as a child. A man molested me in my home, wherever they will say they were molested. And for the president to condone this type thing knowing the full facts is just irresponsible.”

    Slanderous.

    Owens has issues. As a man of God, Owens should choose his words more carefully and think through his peculiar accusations against the president before going public. His assertions seem reckless for a man who claims to be a Christian leader.

    So let’s review: Ninety-five days before Election Day, as Obama faces a tough re-election battle against Republican rival Mitt Romney, and while every civil rights organization in the country is mobilizing black voters for Obama, Owens wants to rally black voters against the president.

    Is Owens supporting Romney? Does Owens think black Americans will be better off with a Republican in the White House?

    Owens wants black Americans to “re-think” their support for Obama simply because of the president’s stand on gay marriage. What’s to re-think? In a race between Obama and Romney – a billionaire who hides his money in offshore bank accounts, who wants to reward the rich and says he doesn’t care about the poor – Obama is the candidate of choice.

    Poll after poll suggests that most African-Americans are concerned about jobs, paying their bills, keeping their homes out of foreclosure, putting their kids through college, and getting access to affordable health care. I haven’t seen any surveys indicating that black Americans would abandon Obama because of his position on same-sex marriage.

    Now, that’s not to say that some African-Americans are not upset at Obama, there are many to be sure, but at what cost? I don’t believe we’ll see thousands of black voters following Owens into the streets to march against Obama, or voting for Romney. Obama won 95 percent of the black vote in 2008 and support for America’s first black president remains high among African-Americans.

    It’s unclear just how many African-American pastors Owens' coalition represents or how many black ministers will actually "re-think" their support of Obama.

    As a minister, there were plenty of spiritually-guided ways Owens could have addressed his concerns. He didn’t have to call a high-profile news conference in DC. before dozens of national journalists; he didn’t have to appear on CNN to criticize Obama or set up interviews with newspaper reporters.

    Owens clearly wanted the media spotlight and he knows how to draw a crowd: By attempting to undermine Obama, the nation's first black president, 95 days before the election.

    So the real question for Owens is this: Why?

    1. You hope Obama loses?!! So I take it you’d be voting for Willard rommey? You gotta be a white guy frontin!!! or you’re a complete idiot! take your sorry ass to stormfront! they love dumb ass morons like you!

    2. “REV” Owens and his band of uncle Tom’s are pathetic! first off what true pastor would bare false witness like the so called religious leader??? calling Obama or anyone he personally doesn’t know a child molester is NO man of GOD! he’s a fraud he’s a tool of the republican party being used to help Willard rommey get elected! Where was the “REV” Owens when Obama faced all the racist republicans and tea party nazi’s??? Where was “REV” Owens during the limbaugh campaign to call Obama everything short of nigger on air?? Where was “REV” Owens during the illegal war during the Bush era? Where was “REV” Owens when republican after republican politicians got caught in adultery? Where was “REV” Owens when republicans politicians got caught in HOMOSEXUAL SEX scandals! often with YOUNG BOYS??? Where were you “REV” Owens ? driving your mercedes to Chick Fil drive thru?? Any black person ignorant enough misguided enough STUPID enough to fall for this obvious republican BS!! then you’re are crazy!! Trust me “REV” Owens will be on fux news and limbaugh doing the racist white man’s dirty work! I can see “REV” Owens and Uncle Tom Larry elder going around the country doing MASSIR’S shoe shine routine!! it’s SICKENING!!!!

    3. If he truely want to chestise someone for rape, start with the chruch and stop doing the devils work,which he leads and call out the Pope, do it live on prime time T.V. and as a blackman, i will stand with him, until then sit down and shut up.

    4. First of all this Rev. Owens sounds like a lunatic, he and all of his followers. You would rather not vote for Obama, then who the hell is left? Romney? He has already said, he does not like poor people, just who do you think he’s talking about? Rev. Owens and company, because you don’t qualify as rich!!!! I will always vote for President Obama. I will never vote for a republican dog, let alone a republican human!!!!!!!!!

    5. I now find it appalling that black ministers have taken the side of the kkk & neo-nazi’s. For anyone, especially black folks, to deny an American their civil rights, is paramount to nazism. In fact, people likeWilliam Owens Slanders are the epitome of Hitlerism.

    6. This whole thing is nonsense to me. President obama can’t have an opinion. He is the President of the United States not the pastor. If religious leaders are hatin on the man for his opinion on gay marriage, then just vote for Mitt, he certainly could care less about the black community. All the issues facing the black community, all the killing, 50% of our kids drop out of school, 72% of our kids born to single moms, fathers have disappeared from homes, the income disparity continues to widen, & this is all they can come up with to hate on Obama about. Really? Glad I am no believer as religion seems more of a hindrance than anythng else. Some black folk kill me with this., “what is he doing for me or us?” What are you doing for yourself cause Obama & no other president is going to save you. Obama has atleast put programs in place to help minorities while Mitt & his Republican friends wanted to cut the same programs. The president can’t do much with an obstructionist congress.

    7. THIS WILL PUT AN END TO THE NONSENSE ONCE AND FOR ALL:

      42 million The number of Black people identified in America in a 2010 Census. That makes up 13.6 percent of the total U.S. population. $ 4.00 out of my check a week x 4 weeks = $ 16.00 x 12= $ 192.00 now $ 192.00 x half all African Americans 20 million =’s $ 3,840,000,000.00 is that right and that’s only half the Blacks for one year. We can fix our own schools
      without having to ask the tea party House of Representatives. (What are we scared)?
      I gotta a good old job I sure hope these dump nig’s don’t start nothing like this on good white folk.
      Sincerly, Chicken George

    8. I saw the Rev. Owens on C-Span and he was SICK! He spoke with so much anger it was horrible. He really need to take speech classes before he go back on TV. I was embarrassed. I still can’t believe he’s a preacher. I bet Tavis Smiley love him.

    9. I pray for folks like you & owens, how can you rail against the President and say nothing of the admitted voter suppression that takes place in this country. You & owens are “SAMBO’S FOR HIRE” you are pathetic because you repeat the basic untruths that your “masters” tell you. In case you didn’t realize it, “most” of us can discern the truth and point out what you do for what it is….a lamentable attempt to distract those incapable of reason. Look in the mirror, you are distracting you while the rest of us look on in disgust.

    10. I think Mr. Owen is absolutely right, that is exactly what this so called first President of the United states is doing. He does’nt care about Blacks in America, because when other groups complain about something he takes time out ,go down and listen what exactly the issue may be at some town hall gathering, but when we complains he respond by saying quit bickering. I hope the mother fucker looses.

    11. As a Christain I’m familiar with the Old Testament admonition against gays.To be a Christain, we are under New Testament rules. Christ says the greatest commandment is to love the Lord with all we have and second to love our neighbor as ourselves. He further stopped the crowd from throwing rocks at an adultress, which is a sin and a commandment, saying he who is without sin throw the first stone. Christ also preached to judge not lest ye be judged. It is for GOD to deal with all us sinners. All gays are not pedophiles and rapists, in fact the great majority are not. It is our right to agree or disagree with anyone. To go as far as the Rev is malicious. He could have expressed his views without going from one media outlet tto the next,that’s active malice.

    13. Dukody, whoever you are, you may not like the POTUS but to say slanderous things about him and to condone the behavior of the so-called preacher are unacceptable. Furthermore, to add to your foolishness in an attempt to appear educated you have shown that you are not, your grammar is terrible. Before you start to call someone else a fool, make sure that you are not making yourself into one!
      And this so-called (probably self- proclaimed and unordained) preacher is a contradiction in himself. How do speak of equal rights and the struggle to obtain them and then in the same statement disenfranchise an entire group of people because you disagree with their sexual preference. Further, how do in your incoherent thought process blame him for your molestation, or say that he supports that? BULL…. He and Dukody need to seek therapy/ treatment and medication, expeditiously!
      And if you think Obama is bad for blacks, then you better start looking very closely at the alternative- who refers to blacks as “those People” or “you People”, the alternative that doesn’t give a damn that you cant get insurance because you have sickle cell because its considered pre-existing (you do know that it only affects blacks-dont you), the alternative that has so many horses that he has lost count, the alternative that stood before the NAACP to talk about repealling our rights! Really, is the alternative better? I voted for Obama in 2008 and I will again in 3 months because he has a good heart and he wants better for ALL people not just for black. We have to get out of this mentality that is for “US” he is for all, but you better bet your bottom dollar his alternative is only for the Green- money that is! Obama creates better opportunties for all people- we have to grab onto those opportunities and make them work for us. You cant expect him to come to you door and get you out of bed to drive you to the opportunity- be sensible! The old saying- you can lead a horse to water, but you can make him drink. If you think you dont have a chance now, then you better look closer to your “alternative” surely you will have less then!

    14. I also believe Mr. Obama is talking to his base group….which would be women….black male vote is probably the least he has to support.

    15. These Black Rev’s are a Joke, trying to rally the Black population against the first black president, because of a “Same Sex Issue”. Where was their War cry when all these other Presidents were raping the country. Bush starting wars for Oil profits. Clinton getting his freak on the Oval Office, but a man say he’s ok with same sex marriage and you want him impeached lol What a Joke!!
      Here’s a thought somewhere in every family line we all have someone who’s gay that we support and love whenever we see them, but turn the camera’s on and these Rev’s want to throw stones. This brother will be supporting Obama in 2012!!!!

    16. So the real question for Owens is this: Why?
      That’s the question that many have about the president’s decision also. I suppose he may lose some (not much) support but it will not be the defining issue; there are far more pressing issues like JOBS & the economy. None the less it is a issue. I for one don’t believe in same-sex marriage (civil union’s maybe). It’s a issue that has moral, religious, sexual & physiological connotations that simply can not be ignored. That’s why some are a bit put off by his and the NAACP decision to endorse it. A lot of individuals feel that the LGBT community has hijacked the civil rights movement in a sense that the voices you hear seems to come mostly from the far left so any time you speak against it, you can expect to be labeled a bigot or silenced even if your black. That’s where the black church is at a cross road with the issue, it’s as if you can’t disagree. I even have read some very condescending tone toward the churches that have not sided with the president on various blogs. Things like being stuck in the past, or not sophisticated enough or progressive??? To me this is a linear issue that has been around since the birth of the church. Don’t get me wrong a lot of changes have taken place since then but the issues remain the same. Some choose to ignore this, some don’t…where is the choice for both?

    17. I wish we had more Black Smart Preachers in the church than these so -called Dr. Revs.need to tell the truth of how important it is to vote for their pocketbooks and not his! Romney will close the church doors with his plan! Another preacher wanting to be noticed!The best way to come down on another black man is the way to do it.

    18. @Working Person … And what do you think people of color will mean to Romney. Republicans do not even like Romney but want to force him on the rest of us. Massachusetts was way down on the list, if not last, in creating jobs during his tenure. He is a pioneer in oursourcing American jobs. The man flip flops on every issue. He refuses to disclose his tax returns. He went to Europe to avoid the Vietnam War. He belongs to a religion that believes in polygamy. The man has no core but wants to be president. Scary! What is scarier corporate media and other parties with big money wants him to win the presidency. Ask yourselves why they want him to win. Is it because he has no core and will be very easy to manipulate just like Bush the second and we all know how that turned out.

    19. obama never liked or had anything to do with people of color until he needed their votes, thats all you people of color mean to obama

    20. Well said. This is the typical “divide and conquer” strategy doing used. Rev William Owens is a sellout. The sad part here is the number of uninformed followers of Rev. Williams that don’t have a mind to think for their self. They’ll just react to wherever he says.

    21. The comments made by Submitted by DUKODY1 are ridiculous and shows how uninformed he is. His comments sound like someone that listens to fox news.

      It’s really crazy how a person can get hung up on one issue that won’t affect their lives one way or the other. But, will forget about the many other issues that will. Do you believe in polygamy? I’m sure you don’t. Well, where’s the kickback for Mitt Romney and his Mormon faith that does believe in polygamy. I mean, come on we have to be real here.

      Here are a few things that will affect your lives way more than same sex marriage if Romney gets in office. Let’s start with the Ryan budget proposal which Mitt Romney wholeheartedly supports. This budget will cut taxes on people making over $250,000 a year and raise taxes on everyone else. Most people taxes will go up an average of $3,000 per year to offset the tax cut for the rich. The plan cuts Medicaid and privatizes Medicare, without causing Doctors to adhere to any price guidelines at all. This will commit seniors to bureaucratically rationed health care system.

      The plan also makes huge cuts to food stamps, Pell grants. All of which will unquestionably damage the social safety net. Romney wants to cut infrastructure spending and eliminate the EPA.

      The Romney tax plan has been described by numerous tax experts as mathematically impossible.

      Romney wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), which would eliminate medical insurance coverage for over 30 Americans.

      These are just a few things that will adversely affect the majority of Americans.
      Mitt Romney’s Policy Proposals Reflect Lack of Concern for the Poor and Middle Class.

      BTW, DUKODY1 demonization of Rev. Al Sharpton shows me he’s knows absolutely nothing about the man; what he and the National Action Network has done to help people of all colors that have become victims of unjust treatment.

      DUKODY1 disjointed and long rant was full of nothing but right wing code words and talking points. People like him will call into progressive radio show with paper in hand repeating the same old tired lines of lies.

      Michael Cottman’s commentary was point on and DUKODY1 couldn’t stand hearing it the way it really is. My comment to Michael Cottman is to continue the excellent job of telling the truth you’ve been doing for many years.

      DUKODY1’s comments smell of racism to me. And oh yes, I’m sure I’ll be called a racist for calling out racism when I see it. That’s what the right wing does. It is hope that most people with his slanted and twisted views will someday see the truth. The United States as a whole is a lot better than the comment made by DUKODY1.

    23. Shoot yourself for these outrageous antics you are posting!! You and William Owens are talking out the side of your necks. GET OUTTA HERE!!

    24. Granted, there are some issues that I don’t agree with the President. That being said, I would rather vote for a person who is willing to work to get the middle class back, make schools and colleges affordable, keep a strong defense without overspending billions to do it, and making sure women are being treated fairly in the workplace. Those are some of the reasons I will vote to keep President Obama in the White House for four more years!

    25. OMG for the DUKODY1 how dare you!!!! What womb did you come from? What Black person crossed you over. The President has no more power than 1 and everything he might want to do for his people or the disadvantaged will not pass legislature. Look at who is at the convention, do you think our country represents the masses, hell no! The FIRST time any initiative that HELPS Blacks will surely be the day Obama will be assassinated. What country do you live in? We were SLAVES and never got our 40 acres and a mule. We just got the right to vote in the last 50 years but how many inventions do we have to our contributions for the blood shed? If for one minute you think that a company will hire you over their own, you are sadly mistaken, it is only because of the “quotas” that the government forced companies to employ blacks why so few are there. Just look at the major corporations, Bush turned all that around even an equal education, I am appaulled but not surprised that they found Owens to speak publically against Obama. Now is the time for all “good men” to come to the aid of our President. VOTE OBAMA 2012

    26. If we could vote today I would walk to the polls and vote to reelect The president.
      Why? Because he has proven to the planet that he can govern and be a great
      Commander in Chief.Remember folks Romney promises to do serious damage to
      Iran to keep them from getting that big dog bomb.So,will he order our military to drop one of those bunker busting bombs and start another global conflict like all
      Arm chair cowpokes do?.We don’t know.However we do know this Commander in Chief sent our number one enemy to swim with the sharks and he did it subtly
      Without a lot of fanfare and saved our country billions by not doing what the armchair cowpokes would have done.Folks we have to look at the bigger picture.

    27. Reverend William Owens, when he goes after Obama for supporting same-sex marriage, is engaging in dog whistle politics. How come he is not mad at Vice President Joe Biden? Like Eve gave the forbidden fruit to Adam to eat. Biden brought the cup containing the beverage of same-sex marriage to the President who slurpped from it. Yeah, Rev. Owens is in the same camp as those birthers like Donald Trump who keep insisting Obama was not born in the United States. Those of the other complexion might buy into the issues Owens has. To the poor and disenfranchised Blacks, this particular minister does not have the clout that he and others of his ilk once had. So we dismiss him. Herman Caine, Clarence Thomas, J.C. Watts, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Larry Elder are hiding money too. This also holds for those two Black talking heads that Sean Hannity has on his television program from time to time.

    28. tRev. Williams points
      1. How many pieces of silver did you take from the Republicans.
      2. What type of freedom did you march for in the freedom struggle?
      3. Do you think we will be better of under the republican administration again?
      4. With all the tax breaks the rich was getting all along, has it help our communities, most of the jobs that are created are given to them although, we are educated.
      5. I hope you have in your church people that can think, we do not need you to divide us anymore.
      6. The house negro is still alive, or are you working for the KKK, tea party and the republican?
      7. You are a disgrace to the church and the memory of all who died for freedom.

    29. Everybody black is not going to like obama are have all good things to say about him, what president you know of did not have critics in there same race, blacks act like its a sin if you dont like obama if your black, i voted for him in 2008 and will vote for him in nov, and there is alot that i did not like that he did , he gave in on the main thing’s he ran on he’s always trying to reach across the table to people who are reaching back.

    30. @ DUKODY1
      Dam you seem so mad you might bust a blood vessel. Well you better breath out
      slow because your gonna have another 4 years to salute a black man as your President. You mutated gene.

    31. No Mr. One-sided Racist journalist Cottman, someone blind by skin color like you will never understand a Real man of color like Rev. William Owens. Although there are many Negroes that will still follow this weak, just want to be seen with White folks Obama. This journalist, like the rest of Black so-called leaders don’t have the poor and disinfranchised Black folks interest. These leaders like weak Obama has FAILED Black Americans, and now they want to hide the facts and talk about Romney. So what if Romney is hiding his money, what do we know about you and the rest of these Black COWARDS. Romney don’t pay his fair share of taxes, who does. Obama selected the biggest tax cheat Tim Geithner to run the department and you on here talking about Romney. No Mr. Racist One-Sided story teller Cottman, it’s time for Blacks to come out and speak their TRUTH. No more hiding and worrying about the RICH so-called Black leaders like Al Sharpton, Morial, Jealous and the rest of these cowards, calling Blacks against Obama Uncle Toms. Don’t be afraid Black folks, these Cowards can’t talk about Romney, they are hiding money also. Look at Al Sharpton new TV show since he started working for Obama. Obama can’t relate to middle class and the poor Black folks, so he send his Negro language talking Sharpton out to talk to Blacks while he smiles and hugs the white folks. Mr Cottman stop hating on Real Black brothers that aren’t afraid to challenge the weakest POTUS Obama. Start asking the FAKE so-called leaders Why have they FAILED BLACK Americans, With Blacks still being the laughing stock here in America with a so-called Black man being the leader of the free world. Blacks are last in everything, Hispanics are more welcomed and sought after for support from Obama. Obama don’t respect Blacks and you report about Romney. Mr. Cottman, if Romney was the POTUS with the hardships Blacks are dealing with, you, Sharpton, and all the rest of the Coward Black so-called leaders would be at the White House daily marching and singing We Shall Overcome. This is SHAMEFUL . WHO REPRESENTS THE POOR AND DISINFRANCHISED BLACKS. You see on here all the RICH and FAMOUS Black celebrities that this site says support Obama. Some spending several thousands of dollars on a meal to hear Obama talk and say what. But not one, not one of them ask Obama or challenge Obama on his promises or his Failures. It’s SHAMEFUL because it could have easily been one these Black RICH stars that have fallen in the poverty line because job lost. You know most of them grew up in poverty, but look at them now. Whether it’s lack of jobs, gay marriage, No hope and Change, many more Black leaders will come out to challenge this LYING WEAK POTUS. Many Blacks will finally speak up for the one’s that can’t. Obama will not diss Blacks with his lies, and this time Mr. Cottman, same skin color will bring out that old saying that was spoken by a one time respectful Black leader. You have to ask yourself Black folks, “Just because he look like you, doesn’t mean he is for you”. You drop the ball Rev. Al and sold out. This time it’s time for Real Change and Hope. Just without all the Hype and Kumbaya. Do the right thing Black folks, think of yourself in the voting booth, don’t let these Rich Black leaders who has forgotten about you and FAILED You, mislead you. The White man ain’t the Boogey Man, Obama is. VOTE FOR REAL CHANGE … Don’t be FOOLED this time… VOTE!!!

    32. You see this is why the White man don’t and will never respect Blacks. These stuck back in time Slave Mentality Negroes. Still talking about what the White man owe you, 40 acres and a damn mule. If you had it, what would you do with it. Black Obama supporters want to depress the Black voices that challenge or speak out against Obama. What do you mean the President has no more power than 1, whoever you are, you are talking about the leader of the free world, the leader of the most powerful country in the world and you say he has no power. What womb did you come from? But again, I understand, this is the Black mentality that has kept blacks in the same place since slavery, LAST. Well folks this is America, where ANY American of any race or color has the FREEDOM OF SPEECH. You may not agree, and that is okay also, but why is it a Cardinal sin for Blacks to disagree with Obama and speak out against him whether it is in Church or on TV, Blacks have the same rights as Whites. Folks, Obama had a chance to start this economy moving forward when he had full control with the house and the senate in his first two years as POTUS. He dropped the ball and Nacy Pelosi and Harry Reid did it their way, Obama was Green and they did what they wanted to do. Folks, Obama had one of the best Senior economic teams ever, but they ALL QUIT because THEY said he was incompetent on the economy. This wasn’t Repubs, this was economist that were hand picked by Obama himself. Black folks, this is politics, most of you never voted before 2008, most of you don’t even know your congressman or congresswoman or senators from the state you live in. All most Black folks see is a man with the same skin color that everyone is picking on and blaming for the economy. What you call it, Haters. Well the way Obama diss Blacks and talk about them on TV as Lazy and get off the couch and do something with yourself, it makes the White man look like a joke. Obama disrespects Blacks and with the Slave Mentality in most Blacks, they go in the corner and hide. Why is this race of people so ASHAMED? How will Blacks ever get anyone to respect heir Voice if they can’t even speak out on teh man who diss them in front of the whole world. SHAMEFUL… Keep speaking out Rev. Owens. Hopefully more will follow soon.

    33. I’d like to ask Rev. William Owens a question. Why are there so many churches in African-American neighborhoods? I mean it’s so bad that the first time I went to church with my girlfriend I said oh” I’m finally going to get a chance to see you and your mother in church at the same time. And she said no she goes to another church around the corner. What’s going on with the church? Straighten up your own back yard before you come out for five minutes of fame. Even if we as black people disagree with something that another black person does take care of it in private at least act like we have some kind of dam unity. I’m sick of black people like this. Furthermore if Obama had to agree with this to obtain more votes to ensure he stays in a position to do bigger things well so be it, and guess what it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out. I wonder if he got a donation to come out with this nonsense at this time. We have kids and babies coming up in this nation that need us especially black men to be on point and steadfast. (Oh god I’m sick of black people like this). We are up against Satan.

    34. Rev Owens has ignored the bigger picture.Remember the president of 310 million citizens has been convinced by some of those citizens that their civil rights
      To marry or have sex with who they choose is being violated.As president he may not agree with the lifestyle but he has to listen to those citizens.Granted the christian Bible warns against it but the church and state are seperate.The Bible warns not to kill.The state says if you kill somebody deliberately we can kill you.So,folks let’s settle this mess once and for all.If we’re still here on12/22/12 the day after it’s predicted something big will happen we will know that God has
      Settled it once and for all.Then we can move full speed ahead
