"Contrary to the report, neither the AME Church nor its leadership is involved with or partnering with the Coalition of African-American Pastors."

-- Bishop Carolyn Tyler Guidry, chair of African Methodist Episcopal Church's Commission on Social Action, responding to a press release by Reverend William (Bill) Owens of the Coalition of African-American Pastors. Owens had claimed that both organizations would withhold support from President Obama "because of his ongoing disrespect for the views of many of us in the black church."
