In an open letter to black evangelicals, Michael Brown candidly asks whether they compromised their beliefs by voting for the re-election of President Barack Obama.

“Are you guilty, on any level, of blind allegiance to the Democratic party? And, on Election Day, did any of you compromise your convictions out of racial solidarity?” the radio show host and author of A Queer Thing Happened to America wrote Tuesday on Townhall.com.

“I simply do not understand how my black evangelical friends who so staunchly oppose same-sex marriage and who stand against abortion could cast their vote for the most radically pro-abortion, pro-gay-activist president in our history,” he said as a fellow evangelical.

According to exit polls from last Tuesday’s presidential election, 93 percent of African-American voters backed Obama, a slight drop from 95 percent in 2008. Still, an analysis by The New Republic concludes that black turnout or support for Obama “might have exceeded ’08 levels.” Only 6 percent voted for Mitt Romney last week. …

[Brown] has been disturbed to hear that some black Christians have been cut off from family, friends, churches and even pastors for opposing Obama. …

” I am not accusing. I am only asking.”
