fred-price.jpgOne of the highest ranking African American religious leaders in California and in the country has endorsed YES on Prop 8. Apostle Frederick K.C. Price of the influential Crenshaw Christian Center in Los Angeles hosted and led off a press conference with dozens of local African American religious leaders yesterday saying that “we shouldn’t do anything to jeopardize the future of our family and our children.”

The press conference opened with 50 African American and Latino pastors from greater Los Angeles, all standing up individually to express their support for YES on Proposition 8.

Joining Dr. Price in supporting YES on Prop 8 was Dr. Beverly “Vam” Crawford, Senior Pastor of Bible Enrichment Fellowship Int’l Church, and Bishop Frank Stewart of the Zoe Christian Fellowship in Los Angeles. Dr. Crawford reminded the two hundred supporters gathered for the event that “we must do what is right and stand for our children. We cannot afford to let this affect our babies in our schools.”

Each of the ministers spoke to the key issues concerning California parents on Proposition Eight. Bishop Frank Stewart from Zoe Christian Fellowship of Los Angeles spoke candidly about claims of civil rights violations from gay advocates and reminded reporters that, “children also have civil rights that deserve to be respected and not violated, and so do I as a parent and a grandparent.”

In total, well over a thousand individual congregations in Greater Los Angeles were represented in the respected group which stood in solidarity for YES on Prop 8. The ministers gathered, represented both African American and Latino congregations throughout Southern California, and the support of 3 million faithful followers.
