Are Black Churches Keeping Women Single And Lonely?

Deborrah Cooper, who is Black, argues that rigid beliefs constructed by the Black church are what’s keeping Black women from finding love.

Author and columnist for the San Francisco Examiner Cooper caused quite a stir with her ideals and her book for claiming that predominantly Black protestant churches, such as African Methodists, Pentecostal, and certain denominations of Evangelical and Baptist churches are the main reason Black women are single.

Black women are the most religious group of people in the United States.  If you listen to what you see and hear on television, you can easily reach the conclusion that African American women have a lot to pray about.

When it comes to love and relationships, black women are the most likely to be single and the most likely to catch an STD.  They also struggle the most economically.

Some are trying to say that part of the reason STD and out-of-wedlock birthrates are on the rise is because many black women are led astray by the men in their lives.  Taught by their pastors that they should only consider dating a man who goes to church, many of these women end up with the same man who is preying on the entire front row of the church, and leading more than his fair share of women astray.
