Minister Farrakhan responds to President Obama and preachers endorsing same-sex marriage: "What the society says means more than what God says?"


On May 27, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke before thousands at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. It was his first time speaking in the city since 1995 and his subject was "Guidance in a Time of Trouble."

As always, his address covered a range of national and global affairs from education to America's pending war with Iran. Minister Farrakhan also addressed President Barack Obama and preachers who recently endorsed same-sex marriage.

He prefaced his thoughts by sharing Biblical scriptures regarding Sodom and Gomorrah and how God destroyed those twin cities. "Don't you dare say 'Farrakhan was preaching hate. He's homophobic.' I'm not afraid of my brothers or sisters or others who may be practicing what God condemned in the days of Lot. That's not our job to be hateful of our people. Our job is to call us to sanity. Our job is to call the people to righteous conduct."

He also reminded the audience that Jesus said "If you offend in one thing you've offended them all. So the fornicator can't look at the lesbian or the homosexual and say 'I'm better than you'...sin is sin according to the Standard of God."

While holding up a copy of the Newsweek magazine that called Pres. Obama the "First Gay President," Minister Farrakhan said, "You think they are not mocking him?...He's the first president that sanctioned what the scriptures forbid. Why is it that all you politicians take your oath of office on the Bible? If the book is no good what the hell are you using it for to take an oath of office to uphold---not the bible--but the constitution? But the constitution comes out of their recognition of the value of this book."

To the preachers who are endorsing same-sex marriage, he said "...what the society says means more than what God says? Reverend, synagogue leader, Catholic priests, is this the book you say you believe in? But now you backing down from an aspect of it because people will get offended?"

  1. Some people's version of the bible/Quran etc also preach hatred and enslavement of people of color, should we accept that too because "God" says so?

    It's hard to support someone like Minister Farrakhan when he preaches stuff like this. The struggle against inequality must be fought within our ranks as much as it is fought outside of our ranks.

    1. Farrakhan did not write the bible nor does he tell God what to hate,it appears that you have issues with Farrakhan lets not confuse the two God hates all sin that committed by Farrakhan and that committed by Gays and others.It is all sin to God and it is that sin that God will utterly destroy by taking the side of God on this issue has absolutely nothing to do with hatred but it does have to do with what God clearly hates and not becoming a victim of sin.

  2. I'm gay and I respect Farrakhan for maintaining his position and not being FAKE like most of these preachers are being right now. Not that I agree with everything Farrakhan says, but at least he's honest. Also I respect him for calling out ALL sinners and not just condemn a select group.

    @Jaime I think he was very fair in this statement.

  3. This is why I respect the Minister. He will tell it how it is regardless of who or what. I would have been crushed if the Minister would have compromise like the other Civil Right leaders, politicians, Black Civil Rights groups. I knew he wouldn't bow on truth though.

    Farrakhan shows that what Rev. Al, Rev. Jackson, Pres. Obama are wrong when they try to make those who oppose same sex marriage appear to be supporters of discrimination against those who incline to that lifestyle.

    This world has defiled and dirtied up so much of the population that very view have the guts to stand. I only know of the Minister and Pastor Tony Evans (on this issue) who stand strong on this issue.

    Farrakhan really has love for those who are LBQGT. He shows his love by telling the truth.

  4. . . . I'm neither gay nor bi, but of a hundred of my friends, about ten are, and it bothers me not at all. A very high percentage of "straight" and happily married people do not engage in sex and are not capable of having children. Most of whom I speak we call "elderly." Therefore, having sexual relationships and the ability to have children is not a definition or requirement of marriage. While I agree the cover-image labeling of the President mocks him, I contend that Minister Farrakhan AND the media (not to mention the so-called right-wing conservatives) all miss the point. Legitimizing marriage among homosexuals and transgendered people has nothing to do with religious condoning of sex (for whatever reason), it has to do with recognizing the rights of caring people being in sustaining reinforcing supportive relationships (a.k.a. marriage) with the accompanying legal rights of hospital visitation, inheritance, and any number of legal rights available to so-called married people, who "register" their relationship through civil or religious sanctions as a public declaration. In many states, even this formal act is not necessary; living together for an arbitrary length of time (e.g., six month's commitment) and holding out to others (representing to others or telling them) that you're married to each other is sufficient to gain recognition for legal purposes or ruling by courts in disputes. These rights are all that gay people seek by being recognized as married if they so desire; it does nothing to diminish in any way "straight" people from the continued rights they allready enjoy as "married." The only "sick" people are those that mock the sincerity of these caring committed gay people by saying such absurd things as "Next we'll have people marrying their dogs"!

    1. Sorry, but your statement doesn't make sense although it sounds extremely eloquent. I believe you have missed the point that Farrakhan is making in this video. Watch it one more time...

  5. Finally, someone unafraid to stand on what they say they believe in. Shame on these Black preachers for endorsing that which God is against...and I like how Farrakhan called out all sinners too. Nobody is better than the other...Great Blog! Thank you.

  6. I hear Farrakhan, but this is America aka "Anything Goes"....so what do you expect? I'm not down with the gay lifestyle but I don't judge people either. I don't think Farrakhan is judging more than he is just giving a gentle reminder of what is written in the Bible. I don't agree much with him, but this video is on point. Too bad people won't listen...oh well

  7. So Jessie Jackson & Al Sharpton are jumping on the "Gay Wagon" & asking (so-called Pastors) to join them. I have some Bible for all of them, plus the (so-called Pastors) that jump on this I promise you can NOT find where they worship in God's Word. Here are some scriptures, as you all further lead precious souls to HELL.

    Romans 1:22-27,32 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
    2.........3 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

  8. There is a way where people being in same sex relationships can have certain rights such as rights of hospital visitation, inheritance, and others, without them having to be legally married. This government can make that possible. See this is what upsets me about this debate. If you oppose same sex marriage they attempt to make you appear as if you would be against them having them kind of rights. That is not the case.

    For people to justify slavery they have to twist scripture like they did to justify the enslavement of Blacks. The scriptures are crystal clear as it relates to marriage. Let's just be honest.
