“How Illinois gay marriage fight pitted Obama against black pastors in Chicago”

    Peter Wallsten at Washington Post: Leading the charge was the Rev. James T. Meeks, the politically savvy pastor of the sprawling Salem Baptist Church in Chicago, who taped robocalls expressing his opposition to gay marriage and connecting thousands of black constituents to their local legislators . . . Irritation was growing in the African American caucus. Some circulated lists showing how campaign contributions from gay donors had historically flowed only to white Democrats, yet now they were supposed to go against powerful constituents in their home districts. Some expressed frustration that they were being asked to take a stand on gay marriage while little was being done to curb gun violence and poverty in their embattled neighborhoods.
