Joe Lowery Uses HUSSEIN Obama Inaugural Prayer To Bash All White People

Posted by Job on January 21, 2009

Pastor Rick Warren’s invocation uses Jewish, Christian mix

Obama smiled as Lowery asked God to “help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right.”

Sooo … white people are the source of all the problems? Not just some problems but all problems? And all white people, not just some white people? Some white people aren’t the source of some problems, some black people aren’t the source of some problems, some brown people aren’t the source of some problems, some yellow people aren’t the source of some problems, some red people aren’t the source of some problems, but all white people are the source of all problems, and all nonwhite people are blameless?

Again, Joe Lowery is AN ORDAINED MINISTER. He said this IN A PRAYER. In the CONCLUDING PRAYER to the PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION. AND OBAMA SMILED.

Simply amazing.  So what, like white people are responsible for the mess that is Africa that is killing so many black people? White people created the problems in Mexico that causes so many brown people to illegally enter this country? White people created the problems for yellow people in China and North Korea? White people are the cause of sky high alcoholism rates on Native American reservations? And the white Christians who are giving up wealth and comfort and risking their lives to work as missionaries in Africa, Latin America, Asia, and among the Native Americans aren’t embracing what is right?

This is proof that just because you have some title like “pastor” or “reverend” doesn’t make you a Christian. Look, according to the Bible that Joseph Lowery totally ignores, there are two “races.” Those in Jesus Christ that are going to heaven, and those who reject Jesus Christ that are going to spend an eternity in the lake of fire unless they repent. Which “race” you are depends on the race that you are running. If you have chosen the easy path that leads to the wide gate, then you are in and of the eternally doomed race.  If you have chosen the hard path that leads to the strait gate, the one that rejects bitterness, hatred, resentment, finger pointing, and excuse making, then you are in and of the redeemed race that is headed for an eternity with the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who will wipe every tear from your eyes. If you are running the wrong race, now is the time to change lanes. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior today.

Trying To Guilt – Or Frighten – Whites Into Voting For Barack HUSSEIN Obama!

Posted by Job on September 17, 2008

Please see this article: The Big ‘What If’. In it, Randall Kennedy not so subtly states his case for why Obama should be president.

1. Blacks in America have been through SOOOO much.

2. Blacks in America that have been through SOOOO much will be … well let me just quote him: 

“If Obama loses, I personally will feel disappointed, frustrated, hurt. I’ll conclude that a fabulous opportunity has been lost. I’ll believe that American voters have made a huge mistake. And I’ll think that an important ingredient of their error is racial prejudice — not the hateful, snarling, open bigotry that terrorized my parents in their youth, but rather a vague, sophisticated, low-key prejudice that is chameleonlike in its ability to adapt to new surroundings and to hide even from those firmly in its grip. If Obama is defeated, I will, for a brief time, be stunned by feelings of dejection, anger and resentment.”

Consider the unmentioned context. If this is how I, a Princeton educated  civilized black man, will react, then imagine how THOSE PEOPLE OVER THERE will react? What will THOSE PEOPLE OVER THERE do? Imagine it, white folks. If you don’t keep us pacified by voting for Obama, roving hordes of black males will invade your neighborhoods and steal your jewels and money, burn your homes and businesses to the ground, put your sons to the edge of the sword, and ravish your pure virgin daughters!

Reminds me of the accounts of the shakedown hustles during the civil rights movement that I read about. A civil rights leader would hold a march, inflame the passions of blacks and whites with purposefully incendiary overcharged rhetoric, and then then GET OUT OF DODGE FAST WHEN THE INEVITABLE RIOT HAPPENS. Why do I say “inevitable”? Because that was the purpose of the march and especially the speech. Make no mistake: the civil rights leaders were MARXISTS. Inciting street riots and other violent subversive behavior was standard operating procedure for the radical left, and in some nations the goal was to get so many people rioting on an almost continuous basis that the country would basically shut down (which leads to even more riots due to people unable go to work or buy food) that it mushrooms into a full blown coup. So the myth that the civil rights movement was “nonviolent” was one of the biggest lies in our recent national history, with the media and our government financed and controlled education system fully complicit, and the people who spoke the truth about what was going on branded as racist and therefore dismissed. 

So, the strategy was to start a riot in city A, then go to city B and tell them “agree to our concessions or you are next.” That is what Shelby Steele was only hinting at when he called Martin Luther King, Jr. a “bargainer” and suggested that Obama was following in his footsteps. The truth is that King used the threat and fear of black violence, black criminality, to manipulate white people. Had the civil rights movement been a true civil rights movement, its goal would have been to convince whites that blacks were the moral, social, cultural, and intellectual equal of whites and to afford blacks the opportunity to demonstrate it. (While the hero of sorts of modern neoconservatives, freemason Booker T. Washington, offered an alternative program that was not without flaws, it nonetheless was his basic strategy.) Instead, the fake civil rights movement encouraged whites to view blacks as rapists, thieves, arsonists, and murderers so they would do whatever it took to pacify us animal beasts (yes, I say US for I am black), including legal, political, and financial payoffs.

To this day, this mentality persists. Civil rights leaders to this day blame illegitimacy, crime, abortions, AIDS, unemployment, low educational attainments, and riots (which fortunately have not occured as often this decade as they did in the 80s and 90s) on the persistent refusal of the white majority of this country to submit to Marxism. That blacks should conduct ourselves and be productive moral people no matter the political or economic system just as whites, Jews, Asians, Hispanics who enter this country legally, and EVEN BLACKS WHO EMIGRATE HERE FROM AFRICA, LATIN AMERICA, AND THE CARIBBEAN do is never discussed, for the advancement of the civil rights agenda does not depend on whites viewing us as equals and therefore respecting us by demanding that we fulfill our responsibilites. Instead, blacks MUST be viewed as children to be taken care of (and will become very unruly if we are not!) or vicious animal beasts that must be pacified lest we attack them with our fangs and talons at worst.  And Randall Kennedy is only doing a more subtle form of the threat that Donna Brazile gave Hillary Clinton supporters wanting to allow the superdelegates to decide the nominee at the convention: that there would be rioting in the streets!

The worst part of it all was that after the W.E.B. Du Bois intellectual phase of the civil rights movement gave way to the street criminality tactics, the movement was basically led by THOSE WHO CLAIMED TO BE CHRISTIAN PREACHERS! Leave alone the fact that these Christian preachers were using subversive tactics that no interpretation of either the sermon on the mount or Romans 13 could support. Instead, consider the fact that instead of using the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to uplift people into becoming new creations, conformed into the image of Jesus Christ, they used their bully pulpits to incite acts of rioting and criminality that debased and demeaned their followers, and then they further demeaned and debased their followers by confirming the worst of the racist thoughts and fears of white people against blacks in their minds! Instead of showing white people – and black people – how the gospel transforms blacks into the image of Jesus Christ, they decided to make merchandise out of their fear of sin and utter depravity. 

Who is this Randall Kennedy to suggest that blacks cannot countenance losing a presidential election just like everybody else? By overtly claiming that Obama’s loss will be only due to racism, Kennedy is calling on blacks NOT to accept it! Well what about it, Kennedy? Do whites have the same privilege? Do whites have the right to attribute a John McCain loss to race since 95% of blacks and (if current tracking polls are correct) 70% of Hispanics are going to vote for Obama? And should whites accept it? Is that not racial equality? But no. Kennedy does not want equality. He wants blacks to have the right to be angry like children, and to act out their anger as children are wont to do, while demanding that whites be mature adults. Because if blacks act like mature adults, he won’t be able to use us to shake anyone down, and if whites act like adults, there will not be anyone to pay the shakedown money, let alone actually run the businesses, schools, and government agencies that Barack HUSSEIN Obama would need in order to actually govern. 

But this is precisely the mentality inculcated by the civil rights preachers, and they did it by preaching a false gospel. The true gospel heals and elevates, not frustrates and denigrates. The true gospel sets captives free, not keeps them in bonds. And yes, the true gospel equips people to conduct themselves in a Christian manner no matter their financial, social, or political circumstances. Do any of these civil rights preachers speak of the poverty, oppression, and disenfranchisement experienced by the early church? The Roman Empire was a monarchy governed in a fascist manner. Virtually all Christians weren’t even citizens, which meant that they had no rights. Making things worse, Christianity was actually regarded as illegal. The rhetoric and ideology of the civil rights movement would have been completely irrelevant to the early church, and their tactics would have only resulted in Rome’s declaring all out war on Christians, which they did not do until 303 AD, by which time the faith was very firmly established. In short, had a Martin Luther King, Jr. been around in the early church, the result would have been no more church, and in short order. 

As a clear contrast to the tactics of the civil rights movement in whose steps this Kennedy person is following, the early church responded to their poverty and persecution with the fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control. Their example was Jesus Christ’s praying for the forgiveness of His murderers while dying on the cross, and many Christian martyrs went to their deaths singing hymns and entreating onlookers to accept their faith. Seeing that the morality of a Christian population that was so put upon far exceeded their own licentious natures was a primary method of winning converts: people saw what the early Christians were going through and wanted to be like them! They were willing to give up their much more comfortable and accepted status in society to join the Christians in tribulation! This is in contrast with the civil rights preachers causing whites to so loathe, hate, and fear their black Christian followers that they would do anything to get away from them. The false Jesus Christ of the civil rights preacher, rather than saying “forgive them Father for they know not what they do” regarding His murderers, would have flashed gang signs, done vulgar sexual poses, and aimed profane tirades at people who had nothing to do with his execution as he was expiring. Instead of saying to the penitent thief “today you will be with me in paradise” as did the true Jesus Christ, the civil rights preacher’s false messiah would have joined the other thief in lamenting their inability to escape, join forces, and commit even more crimes! We should not be surprised because the Jesus Christ of Martin Luther King, Jr. was not born of a virgin, did not die for our sins, did not rise from the dead, is not the Son of God, and is not God incarnate.

This is precisely why we must reject the false gospel of the religious left. We must also reject the false gospel of the religious right. We must reject all false gospels that tells us that it is expedient and appropriate to conform ourselves to our temporal conditions and the ways of this world, and accept only the true gospel of Jesus Christ, which tells us to keep our Christian walk in this life focused on the eternal life to come. Civil rights leaders would have called such talk the message of the sellout who submits himself to injustice and white supremacy out of a fearful refusal to challenge it. It is precisely the same line of thought that led James Cone to declare that any god that did not support black liberation must be killed! My response: follow the God of the Bible or change your religion. Also, quit being so culturally chauvinistic! If you are a Christian in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Barack Obama’s Indonesia, etc. right now, the civil rights movement tactics will only result in your speedy death just as it would have in the early church. The true gospel equips its adherents for whatever circumstances that they will face. That the civil rights gospel was only applicable or effective to our own nation and culture is proof that it always was false to the entire world.

So Christians, black and white, Hispanic or Asian, do not conform to the ways of this world  in this matter or in any other. Instead, resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Tim LaHaye And James Dobson Associates Bob DeMoss and Mark Whitlock: Race Baiting For McCain (And For Money) With Obama Waffles!

Posted by Job on September 17, 2008

Now PJ Miller was outraged by this. Personally, I find it funny!Barack Obama, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Values Voters, conservative, waffles, Aunt Jemima, campaign 2008, politics, presidential election

Check out THE VERY FIRST COMMENT on an LA Times weblog:

What is truly horrifying to me is that the Waffle creators, Bob DeMoss and Mark Whitlock, once worked at Focus on the Family; DeMoss:has co-authored a book with Tim LaHaye. See Whitlock’s own website:

http://whitlockportfolio.blogspot.com/2007/09/letter-of-reference-from-bob-demoss.html

People, if you wanted more evidence that the religious right is not led by Christians, here it is. In our current social location, there is no excuse for race baiting, especially when you consider that in our own very country, blacks and Hispanics are overrepresented in the very same evangelical, fundamentalist, and traditionalist churches that these “values voters” people are supposed to represent. If they were Christians, they would know that casting stumblingblocks that their black and Hispanic brothers and sisters (as well as the not a few Christians that converted to our religion from Islam, often at great personal cost!) is more important than some ridiculous election. That’s right, getting JOHN MCCAIN, the guy that all of these same people wanted to win LEAST less than a year ago (many actually preferred the cross dressing pro – gay pro – abortion Rudy Giuliani over McCain) into office is so important that they will do this? 

If you wanted more evidence that people like this lack the love of God in them, then here you go. This is not New England in the 1600s, when Christians like Cotton Mather were debating over the proper manner to treat their black slaves. These people know better. They just don’t care about Christians that aren’t white Republicans, which means that they themselves are just as anti – Christian as Jeremiah Wright.

The Bible Prohibits Affirmative Action!

Posted by Job on September 10, 2008

Click Here To Follow The Three Step Salvation Plan!

I have been writing way too much about politics lately … I promise to work to make the site more balanced in the future. The Bible verse that explicitly prohibits affirmative action in my estimation is Proverb 11:1. “The LORD abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are his delight.” That is the NIV. The ESV gives it as follows: “A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, but a just weight is his delight.”

Making it as simple as possible, many colleges evaluate candidates for admission and workplaces for hiring and promotion based on a points system. For instance, a numerical representation is made of a person’s qualifications. So a candidate for college admissions would acquire some points based on a combination of his grade point average and standardized test scores, for hiring based on his education and work experience, to make use of a crude example. Then that person’s numbers are compared against all of the other candidates, and people are accepted or rejected largely based on it. Those who practice affirmative action and other preference systems add points based on a person’s race or sex.

This point system is, in every respect, a scale. It is used to weigh or measure a person in the same way that, in the literal context of this verse, a person in a marketplace would measure the weight of produce or other merchandise in order to determine its financial worth. Of course, reflecting the fallen nature of mankind, dishonest vendors would rig the scales to force customers to pay more for his merchandise than they were worth. You might protest that this is an unfair comparison, for the measure of a person’s worth cannot be correctly gauged using numbers. That is true. It is also true that the supermarket scale that determines how much you will pay for your tomatoes according to their weight will not tell you how fresh the tomatoes are, what kind of tomatoes they are, or how good they will taste.

The point is that if a system of measurement is going to be used, then it must be used evenly and fairly. If such is done, then it is a just weight that the Lord loves. If it is not done, then it is a cheating scale that the Lord hates. If the Lord hates something, what is it? A sin. God loves mercy, fairness, and equity and demands that we treat each other in that fashion. 

So, the religious left demands that we accept and practice affirmative action. In doing so, they promote sin, promote people to accept and embrace sin. By calling opponents of affirmative action racist and sexist, they violate Isaiah 5:20, which pronounces death upon those who call good evil and evil good, and they also coerce and intimidate people into sinning – or to be silent in the face of sin – that otherwise would not.

However, the religious right is not totally off the hook. Why not? They criticize race based affirmative action while actually praising and defending legacy preferences! In doing this, they A) commit the same sin as the religious right with affirmative action, B) add to that the sin of hypocrisy, and C) add to that still the sin of favoring the rich and powerful – as legacies tend to be – over the poor and powerless, which James 2:1-13 calls the sin of partiality. Although when you ponder it a bit, partiality can be considered just another type of cheating scale, especially when you consider that universities openly admit that they practice legacy admissions because it helps fundraising from wealthy donors, and that it creates “a sense of community” (elitism). 

Now I am certain that there are some that would seek to introduce more variables, such as how colleges in particular factor in such values as favoring students from certain high schools (a form of elitism since these high schools are generally high income) and from certain areas of the country. I will concede this point, but only to a degree. We should agree that rigging scales by race and sex and favoring the rich in our current context are especially problematic, and as such should not be advocated or defended by any Christian.

Lynn Westmoreland, Who Used Racism To Defeat A Black REPUBLICAN, Called The Obamas UPPITY, A RACIAL SLUR!

Posted by Job on September 4, 2008

Seriously white evangelical Christians, are these the people that you want representing you? Turn aside from the politics of hatred and wickedness that exalts itself against Jesus Christ and follow Jesus Christ only! And incidentally, as for black Obama fans that are Christian, you folks found out this election season what white Democrats really think of you, so you do the same. If you are not a Christian, this is still more proof that Jesus Christ is your only hope. The world hates you and its leaders too. But Jesus Christ loves you and wants you to make you His! So why not reject this madness, this wickedness, and choose the love and beauty of Jesus Christ! See the hate that people who reject Jesus Christ from their lives and hearts below. Incidentally, Dylan Glenn was the black Republican that Lynn Westmoreland ran the race baiting campaign against, proving that white Republicans only pretend to love black Republicans until election time. Jesus Christ is neither a Democrat or a Republican, because His kingdom is not of this world. If you want to be in the world making a positive difference for love and righteousness but not of it, please follow The Three Step Salvation Plan!

Black Leaders Reject Incontrovertible Evidence Of The Racist Origins Of Gun Control Laws!

Posted by Job on August 23, 2008

Of course, there is a reason why of all the hate crimes committed against blacks, the Camilla Massacre is the one that black leaders would rather not speak of! Why? Because blacks were murdered over the right to possess firearms! Understand this: the right to possess firearms which one would use to defend himself and other innocent people is basic to a society that values and promotes law, order, and justice. Black leaders are part and parcel of the anti – Christ cabal that desires lawlessness, disorder, and injustice, a climate where the innocent will be victimized. Such people promote the notion that the government will protect us while knowing full well that a government which rejects the very concept of truth and right and wrong will be the single biggest force of oppression, injustice, and victimization. Indeed, the very same people who claim that we do not need guns because the government will protect us are also the ones who agitate against police officers and district attorneys so that they will allow violent criminals, even those that victimize and violate women and children in the most heinous and grotesque manner imaginable, go unpunished! It is the ultimate deception: on one hand these people demand that we give up our guns and rely on the government to protect us from criminals, and on the other hand these very same individuals not only petition but coerce the government into refusing to enforce the law and allowing these criminals to roam our streets with no fear of deterrent or reprisal! Evil such as this is brought to you by the same ACLU mindset that advocates for child molesters!

So people out there, read this below and realize that Barack Hussein Obama is on their side. Of course, John Sidney McCain is too, for never forget that McCain supports rewarding the lawless invasion of illegal immigrant criminals with amnesty, as well as the illegal undeclared war in Iraq. As a matter of fact, McCain is brazenly using his volunteering for the similarly illegal undeclared war in Viet Nam, an action which he himself admitted that he was not seeking to honor or follow the will of God in taking up, as his primary qualification for president! That and his position on the illegal undeclared war in Iraq! And yes, both candidates are bought and paid for lock stock barrel and crumb by the same cabal of lawless bankers, financiers, profiteers, speculators, and corporate raiders that have been looting Wall Street, the federal treasury, pension plans, and your own pockets without any threat or possibility of punishment. Look at the list of the big contributors to McCain and Obama, Democrats and Republicans, and you will see so many of the same names! So when we have candidates that are not only openly brazenly committed to lawlessness, BUT ARE USING THEIR COMMITMENT TO LAWLESSNESS AS THEIR PRIMARY QUALIFICATIONS FOR THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND, how could you even THINK of voting for either one?

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Friday, August 22, 2008

Guns-rights advocates want to change a state firearms law that they say has a racist past.

But black lawmakers say those advocates are using the story of a Reconstruction-era massacre of African-Americans to justify letting Georgians tote weapons in churches and other public places.

Next month is the 140th anniversary of the Camilla Massacre, when a group largely made up of blacks heading to a Southwest Georgia Republican political rally were shot up by white locals after being warned not to bring guns to town.

Gun-rights advocates say the September 1868 massacre, in which at least nine freedmen were killed and up to 25-30 were wounded, led the General Assembly to ban citizens from carrying firearms at political rallies and other “public gatherings.” The aim, they say, was to keep guns away from blacks.

“It was entirely about race,” said Ed Stone, president of GeorgiaCarry.org.

But many African-American lawmakers don’t see the “public gatherings” law as a civil rights issue. In fact, at the Capitol, black lawmakers have been some of the leading backers of gun-control legislation over the years.

One, Sen. Vincent Fort (D-Atlanta), called GeorgiaCarry’s use of the Camilla massacre “deeply offensive.”

“It’s very cynical, even more-so when you understand that in many African-American demographics, gun homicides are the number one cause of death,” Fort said. “To have these people use the history of discrimination against African-Americans going back 140 years to say this is why we need to have guns in churches, restaurants and schools …. where is this going to end?

GeorgiaCarry.org led the charge during the 2008 session to pass legislation allowing Georgians with carry licenses to take guns on MARTA, into restaurants and state parks. They are battling city of Atlanta officials in court over a ban on guns in non-secure areas of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The next target may be churches and college campuses.

Earlier this month the group made a presentation to a Senate committee that will consider legislation for the 2009 session that would likely loosen the “public gatherings” section of state law, allowing Georgians with licenses to carry firearms in more places. During the meeting, Stone told lawmakers about the Camilla Massacre.

The incident has been called one of most violent episodes of Reconstruction.

It happened after the white-dominated General Assembly expelled 32 black legislators. One of them, Philip Joiner, helped lead a march Sept. 19, 1868, of several hundred blacks and a few whites to Camilla to attend a Republican political rally. Some were armed with walking sticks, shotguns and other various firearms, according to historical accounts of the event.

When the procession was a few miles outside of town, the local sheriff warned them not to come to town with firearms. The marchers told the sheriff they meant no harm and continued on. posse of armed white townsmen gathered to await the group.

When the marchers arrived, they were met by a posse of armed white townsmen, who opened fire. The white Republicans and freedmen fled, but the sheriff’s men pursued them, shooting the freedmen as they tried to escape, according to the state histories. State officials blamed the marchers for defying the sheriff’s order not to bring guns to town.

Two years later, the General Assembly passed legislation prohibiting citizens from carrying guns into places of public worship, court, voting precincts or other “public gatherings.”

E.R. Lanier, a Georgia State University law professor who teaches Georgia legal history, said historical documents connecting the massacre with the gun law from that time are limited. But, he said, ” There is a connection, there is no doubt about it.”

While that may be true, Rep. Tyrone Brooks (D-Atlanta), a longtime civil rights activist, said it’s dishonest for groups like GeorgiaCarry to use “horrible stories to justify why the Legislature and the courts should allow for easier access to guns.

“It’s very disingenuous and it is not appropriate to link these horrible massacres to what they are doing in 2008,” Brooks said. “We need less guns on the street rather than more guns. If you took the guns off the street, particularly in African-American, Hispanic and poor white communities, the homicides would drop dramatically.”

Sen. Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock), a member of the Senate gun-laws study committee, supports giving more freedom to Georgians with carry licenses. He said the arguments about gun violence don’t hold water because Georgians who go through background checks to get the licenses generally aren’t the ones committing crimes.

“The gun violence that is occurring there is not happening with the people who are going through background checks, it’s happening with people who already have a criminal history,” Rogers said. “If they have a criminal history, particularly a violent criminal history, then we don’t want them carrying a weapon.”

Rogers called the Camilla massacre a sad piece of Georgia history that resulted in the “public gathering” law.

“Law enforcement back then thought you ought to disarm African-Americans,” Rogers said. “Now we are seeing people arguing about the same thing. If they are law-abiding citizens, regardless of what color they are, they ought to be able to protect themselves.”

Planned Parenthood Supports Affirmative Action Abortion Policies

Posted by Job on August 21, 2008

WHAT WAS SAID (Idaho Statesman article)

Autumn Kersey of Planned Parenthood in Boise: Good afternoon, this is Autumn.

Donor: Hello, Autumn, I’m interested in making a donation today.

Kersey: Fantastic!

Donor: What about abortions for the underprivileged minority groups?

Kersey: Oh, absolutely. We have, um, in fact, uh wonderful, fantastic news. We just received a very generous donation to our women in need fund.

Donor: Wonderful. I want to specify that abortion to help a minority group – would that be possible?

Kersey: Absolutely.

Donor: Like the black community for example?

Kersey: Certainly.

Donor: OK, so the abortionI can give money specifically for a black baby, that would be the purpose.

Kersey: Absolutely. If you wanted to designate that you wanted your gift to be used to help (an) African-American woman in need, then we would certainly make sure that that gift was earmarked specifically for that purpose.

Donor: Great. Because I really face trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids being disadvantaged, you know, against black kids. I just had a baby; I want to put it in his name, you know.

Kersey: Mmhmm, absolutely.

Donor: So that’s definitely possible.

Kersey: Oh, always, always.

Donor: So I just wanna – can I put this in the name of my son?

Kersey: Absolutely.

Donor: Yeah, he’s trying to get into colleges, and he’s going to be applying, you know, he’s justwe’re just really bighe’s really faced troubles with affirmative action.

Kersey: Mmhmm.

Donor: And we don’t, you know, we just think, you know, the less black kids out there the better.

Kersey: (Laughs) Understandable, understandable. … Um David, let me, if I may, just get some sort of specific general information so we can set this up the right way. You said you wanted to put it in your son’s name, and you would like this designated specifically to assist (an) African-American woman who’s looking to terminate a pregnancy.

Donor: Exactly, and yeah, I wanna protect my son, so he can get into college.

Kersey: All right. Excuse my hesitation, um, um, this is the first time I’ve had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I’m excited, and I wanna make sure I don’t leave anything out.

Joe Chavalia Kills Unarmed Indigent Single Mother In Her Own Bedroom! Why Was It Not Murder? BECAUSE HE WORKS FOR THE STATE!

Posted by Job on August 5, 2008

Please see link below on how the state’s power is ever increasing. And no, people, this is not about race. This is about the unchecked growth of state power and the total lack of accountability. Today, the state goes after the poor. Tomorrow, the state – and big business – will come after everybody else. Christians, what are you going to do when the anti – Christ state declares you its enemy and comes after you? Or are you so conformed to this world and its ways and so lukewarm in your witness and testimony through the life that you lead that the state will not consider you an enemy but rather a friend and hence will have no reason to come after you? 

By the way: make no mistake the state is able to get away with this only because this “drug raid” policy targets poor people. If these same tactics targeted the rich or even the upper class, such persons would not put up with it for a second. They would leave and take their ability to create wealth, businesses, and jobs (not to mention pay the taxes!) and go to some place where the possibility of a crime being committed in their home does not result in someone dead. Now be honest: if SWAT teams were busting into upscale rave parties with guns blazing or shooting embezzlers, tax cheats, and going after the MANY affluent drug users that we have in our society, you could imagine the outrage and calls for reform. How do I know this? Do any of you remember Randy Weaver? He was a fellow that decided that our government was illegitimate because it afforded equal rights to black people. There were other reasons, mind you, but make no mistake, Weaver was primarily motivated by his white separatism. Weaver also decided to acquire himself a huge stash of weapons, and to ILLEGALLY sell those weapons to his white separatist brethren. Well, it just so happened that Weaver sold a sawed off shotgun to a federal agent that he believed was a fellow traveler. What did this person want the weapon for? To kill a police officer, or maybe any black person that had the gall to be found in the area? Weaver didn’t know or care. In any event, the fellow quite predictably refused to respond to summons to court to stand trial for his crime. So, when the authorities came to arrest Weaver, a standoff and shootout ensued that resulted in the death of Weaver’s wife. 

Now this should come as no shock to anyone. Armed criminals tend to resist capture, and the result of this resistance often results in injury or death. Except that “conservatives”, the very same types of people that are now cheering the acquittal in this instance, rushed to Randy Weaver’s defense. The government action was “a setup.” The law that Weaver broke was “illegitimate because it infringes on our Second Amendment rights.” Weaver was “targeted because of his politically incorrect beliefs.” Rather than bringing it on herself for living with a criminal, Weaver’s wife – also shot while holding her child – was “murdered by the state.” Now the blogosphere did not exist back then, but talk radio and the conservative magazines ate it up and made Weaver a hero. He was feted on Capitol Hill, speaking before a congressional committee on the need of the ATF to change its tactics and be reformed as the personal star guest of the Republican Congress. He received a huge settlement from the government. And he never saw a day in jail for his original crime of trafficking in illegal weapons OR firing on the government officials that rightfully came to arrest him. 

So Weaver is a hero and victim of government aggression, while Wilson “deserved it” because of her immoral and illegal life choices. What is the difference in the eyes of a conservative? We all know: class, race, and culture. Well, it is precisely the sort of classism, racism, and cultural chauvinism that allows the power of the unjust anti – Christ state to grow by leaps and bounds. , as the very “big government watchdogs” that swung into action to defend a man who was trying to kill law enforcement officials (remember G. Gordon Liddy selling “ATF agent” crosshair targets?) fully support this action. Both Ms. Weaver and Tarika Wilson died after being shot by government agents while holding their children in their arms. The difference is that the former happened because her husband was shooting back! In the Wilson case, the only shots fired were by the state. It is also ever more ironic that so many of the very conservatives that wanted to monitor and curb state power in the Weaver instance now support the Patriot Act, FISA, and virtually everything the state claims that it needs or wants to fight the war on terror.

Black Homosexual Tries To Stop Publication Of Bible On Grounds That It Is Homophobic!

Posted by Job on July 11, 2008

I read about this first on a “we hate black people” site (which I peruse from time to time because I happen to be black and wish to see what they are saying about us colored folk) where they are just loving it:

http://cofcc.org/?p=1701

Normally I would not give people like that publicity – let alone traffic – but it seems oddly to fit somehow. Perhaps it is the truth that both the sin of racism and the sin of homosexuality oppose Jesus Christ and the Bible. Any racist that casts stones at homosexuals ought to realize that unless he repents of his sins, on judgment day the racist and the homosexual will both burn for eternity in the lake of fire. Now for the story from a more reputable source:

TESTING THE FAITH
‘Gay’ man sues Bible publishers
$70 million for emotional distress because homosexuality cast as sin


Posted: July 09, 2008 10:52 am Eastern© 2008 WorldNetDaily   


Bradley Fowler (RightPundits.com)

A homosexual man who has a blog on Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign website is suing two major Christian publishers for violating his constitutional rights and causing emotional pain, because the Bible versions they publish refer to homosexuality as a sin. 

Bradley LaShawn Fowler, 39, of Canton, Mich., is seeking $60 million from Zondervan and another $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing in lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the Grand Rapids Press reported.

Fowler filed his claim against Grand Rapids-based Zondervan Monday, alleging its Bibles’ references to homosexuality as a sin have made him an outcast from his family and contributed to physical discomfort and periods of “demoralization, chaos and bewilderment,” the paper said.

He filed suit against Tennessee publisher Thomas Nelson in June.

Zondervan says that even if Fowler’s claim is credible, he’s suing the wrong party. A company spokesman told WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids that Zondervan doesn’t translate the Bible or own the copyright for any of the translations but relies, instead, on the “scholarly judgment of credible translation committees.”

U.S. District Judge Julian Abele Cook Jr. refused Monday to appoint an attorney to represent Fowler in the Thomas Nelson case, saying the court “has some very genuine concerns about the nature and efficacy of these claims.”

Fowler, who is representing himself in both lawsuits, says in his complaint against Zondervan that the publisher intended to design a religious, sacred document to reflect an individual opinion or a group’s conclusion to cause “me or anyone who is a homosexual to endure verbal abuse, discrimination, episodes of hate, and physical violence … including murder.”

Fowler alleges both Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, with its King James Bible, manipulated Scripture without informing the public by using the term “homosexuals” in a New Testament passage, 1 Corinthians 6:9.

He told the Grand Rapids TV station in an interview he wants to “compensate for the past 20 years of emotional duress and mental instability.”

Zondervan, he contended, is misinterpreting the Bible.

“These are opinions based on the publishers,” Fowler said. “And they are being embedded in the religious structure as a way of life.”

‘Astounding research’

Fowler’s blog on Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign website features a post titled “Unleashing America from Injustice,” in which he says he “was completely distraught after discovering the term-homosexual-was added to the bible, in 1976, and then removed, in 2001 and 2006, without any consideration to the many victims who committed suicide or were murdered because of their sexual preference of homosexuality.”

The Obama campaign notes the opinions expressed in its community blog section “in no way should be interpreted as endorsed or approved by the campaign.”

On a separate personal blogsite, Fowler features his related book, written under the name “Bradley-Almighty,” which, he boasts, contains “astounding research from within the pages of the bible, that will change the face of religion across the globe.”

Titled “365 Reason’s to Study the Bible,” he says his “debut book” takes the reader “on a journey through time, as he shifts swiftly, yet gracefully, through the pages of religious history, slowly exposing hidden secrets bible publishers have fought- feverishly to keep hidden from the general public for centuries. An avalanche of secrets that are keeping millions around the world enslaved today.”

Fowler cites his interview with a newspaper called Michigan Front Page in which he said, “Lack of sincerity from bible readers has helped this conspiracy go on this long.”

‘Engrossed’ with Scripture

On his personal blog’s “About Me” page, Fowler says that while serving a sentence in the Michigan Department of Corrections, he “gained a sincere interest” in the Bible’s teachings and, over a 10 year period, “became so engrossed within” the Scriptures, he couldn’t do much more than eat and sleep.

In the rambling piece, he says “everything inside of me suddenly became consumed and overwhelmed by something greater than me … that’s when I found God.”

Then, in an apparent reference to the complaint in his lawsuit, he says, “Discovering how much the bible has been changed through man’s desicions and incorrect interpretations was hard to accept.”

His discovery, he says, “proves we all have been strung along, foolishly, lost in the essence of our minds.”

Fowler concludes with a description of himself as a “small business owner, part-time college student, member of the Christian Writer’s Guild, freelance writer for the Michigan Front Page, and author of two new books.”

Fowler, notes a post by JoAnne Thomas on RightPundits.com, explained his complaint on his blog. He writes:

In 1970, I Corinthians 6:9 read as followed-Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulteres, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effiminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.

In 1982 ,the same scripture read like this-

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodimites.

In 2001 the same scripture reads like this-

Surely you know that the people who do wrong will not inherit God’s kingdom. Do not be fooled, those who sin sexually, worship idols, take part in adultery, those who are male prostitutes, or men who have sexual relations with other men, those who steal, are greedy, get drunk, lie about others, or rob thses people will not inherit God’s kingdom.

Yet another person who is trying to read modern sensibilities into the Bible, completely ignoring that the book was written not by white 1960s liberals but rather by Middle Eastern Jews who were so conservative that they would make Bob Jones University look like Cal – Berkeley during the free speech days. First, Jesus Christ was a Jew who honored the law of Moses which CLEARLY bans homosexuality. Second, Paul, who wrote the epistles in question, was a Jew who honored the law of Moses which CLEARLY bans homosexuality. Third, while the New Testament does not use the term homosexuality, NEITHER DOES THE OLD TESTAMENT. BOTH TESTAMENTS CLEARLY DESCRIBE THE SINFUL SEXUAL BEHAVIOR, NOT USE A TERM THAT MAY NOT HAVE EVEN EXISTED AT THE TIME. Fourth, INDEPENDENT EXTRABIBLICAL WRITINGS ALL CONFIRM THAT IN THE ANCIENT WORLD CHRISTIANS (and Jews) WERE NOTED FOR THEIR OPPOSITION TO HOMOSEXUALITY (and abortion). Claiming that the Bible does not reject Christianity not only rejects the text of the Bible itself, but IT REJECTS HISTORY. That is why up until very recently, the typical gay rights trick has been to claim either A) the Roman Catholic Church made up or altered the New Testament writings that forbad homosexuality, B) Paul’s teachings on the matter conflicted the words and message of Jesus Christ and should be rejected, or C) the Bible is not inerrant and should not be literally interpreted or the final authority. Claims that the Bible text does not condemn homosexuality and Christians going back to the early church did not practice it – again clearly disproven by history – would be IMPOSSIBLE were it not for political correctness. 

By the way: please note how Zondervan is not standing behind the Bible, but rather is shifting the blame – and financial responsibility – to the translation committee. “Zondervan says that even if Fowler’s claim is credible, he’s suing the wrong party. A company spokesman told WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids that Zondervan doesn’t translate the Bible or own the copyright for any of the translations but relies, instead, on the “scholarly judgment of credible translation committees.” Remember: Zondervan is owned by the world’s biggest pornographer Rupert Murdoch. Thomas Nelson, by the way, is also now owned by a secular media company. 

Murdoch’s Fox News during “The Passion of The Christ” controversy ran a special which basically took the liberation theology line on the crucifixion (later adopted by dual covenant heretic John Hagee) that Jesus Christ was killed by the Romans for being a political subversive (which by the way would have made Jesus Christ A SINNER if true!), and that the Jewish leaders had nothing to do with it. It is only because so many evangelicals are wedded to the conservative and/or Republican Party lines whose Fox News toes that they were able to get away with such blasphemy without a peep from evangelicals! I have a strong feeling that the instant that publishing the actual Bible is no longer profitable for Murdoch, he will come out with a fake one. And yes, these new translations and this new Bible scholarship that makes any and every excuse to push the Bible translations into more liberal and less spiritual directions will make it so. 

As I have stated many a time before, I do not wish to give things like this more significance than they deserve. I am not Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church who believes that homosexuals are destroying our nation, culture, world, etc. or “Brother R.G. Stair” with his little compound in South Carolina who makes homosexuality the defining aspect of the anti – Christ and the endtimes. Rather, things like this are merely symptoms of problems in our culture – and in contemporary Christianity – that are much larger and run far deeper. For instance, the main problem isn’t that you have fellows like this willing to make this claim, a court willing to take him seriously, or even a major secular immoral corporation like NewsCorp throwing its own translators under the bus, and thereby betraying their intention to hire translators that will make no references to the sin of homosexuality in their future Bible translations (yes, NewsCorp makes a ton of money off the gay community, and furthermore gay rights activists have made huge inroads into the business community and into the Republican Party and conservatism just like everywhere else). No, the problem is that when confronted with this information, so many Christians either lack the Bible knowledge to oppose it, or they have and discard it in order to follow after their own hearts. The latter is obviously true from how so many Christians are following heretic and apostate preachers whose doctrines and lives are open contradictions to the Bible.

Judeo – Christianity Does Not Include Jesus Christ Or Messianic Jews!

Posted by Job on April 25, 2008

Banning Jesus: What a “Judeo-Christian” Prayer Service Looks Like from Slice of Laodicea:

I had emailed you awhile back about an event similar to this one, co-sponsored by my previous church. It was to pray for Israel, and Jewish folks were invited as well. The problem began when I found out just a day before the event, from the church we were partnered with to do this, that in order not to be offensive they had to remove their crosses that were out in the open, banners with the name of Jesus on them, the speakers were only to read from the Old Testament, and no songs of Jesus were to be sung. They said that we had to agree to this ahead of time or the Jewish participants would not come. Also, Messianic Jews were not allowed to participate as speakers, and if they attended, they had to sit in a special place in the back as to not offend the Jewish folks who think they are traitors to Judaism…

I have stated in the past that these incidents are not by accident. It is part of an ongoing effort on a religion based on rejecting Jesus Christ – rabbinic Judaism – to cause Christians to do the same. Jews claim that it is done to remove the “threat” of proselytization. Nonsense. The biggest threat to Judaism is not proselytization, but of Jews becoming for all practical purpose atheists or marrying non – Jews (also almost always atheists in practice) and not raising their children in Judaism. The threat of persecution is also given as another reason, and I agree that there is a history of such behavior by Christians. Yet Muslims also have persecuted Jews, and Jews do not respond by trying to get nonviolent Muslims to alter and deny their faith. (Quite the contrary, Jews promote the notion that Jews and Muslims were living together in peace before the Christians came and taught the Muslims to hate.)

No, this is all about their being offended at the claims of Jesus Christ being their God and Messiah through whose Name alone can salvation can be granted. So, Jews have been successful in getting liberal “Christians” to deny Jesus Christ because liberal Christianity was basically already there to begin with, so anti – Semitism and the memory of the Holocaust gave them yet another excuse to not only deny fundamentalism within themselves, but to attack Christians that insisted on adhering to it as bigoted and dangerous. It is not that such liberal Christians sincerely care about Jews suffering bigotry and harm as they are offended by fundamentalist Christians continuing to hold onto their doctrines and as such exposing them as the apostate frauds that they are.

But evangelical Christians were a tougher case, because in order to retain influence among those that have rejected theological liberalism and universalism, there remained the need to assert fidelity to scripture. So to them, the way was right wing politics, with dispensational pre – tribulation rapture doctrines added to it. The older Christians probably know within their heart that it is primarily a secular activity for cultural and political reasons, but younger Christians raised on this HONESTLY DO NOT KNOW BETTER.

You have two groups of concern here. First, there are the younger Christians, folks 30, 35, even 40 and younger who were raised in an evangelical church, and for whom the views and activities of Falwell, Robertson, Dobson, etc. have always been part of their religious mindset. The amazing thing that a lot of these people have grown up reading newspaper columns and listening to radio shows produced by people that they presume to be evangelical Christians (and by this I do not mean the likes of Dobson but actually secular figures like Rush Limbaugh) and have their religious views influenced by them, not to mention by politicians like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. And then there is the second group, which is people that have been converted into political evangelicalism during this time. Counting their children, it may actually be larger. Both groups would be absolutely shocked to find out that before the rise of the religious right, not only was the practice of joining hands with people that explicitly reject Jesus Christ as do rabbinic Jews in spiritual gatherings not done, but similar gatherings between even Roman Catholics and Christians were rare!

And of course, I am going to play the hypocrisy card. Let us say that it were MUSLIMS rather than Jews! THESE SAME PEOPLE WOULD INSIST ON PRAYING IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST IN THEIR PRESENCE AND DENOUNCE AS AN APOSTATE HERETIC ANYONE WHO REFUSED! Why? Well, Muslims are on the other side politically and represent a different political alignment and worldview, for one thing. That is one of the reasons why so many conservatives are so willing to accept the notion that Barack HUSSEIN Obama may secretly be Muslim. Never mind the fact that radical Islam is not only much more socially conservative than not only the left wing of the Democratic Party but also most evangelical Christian Republicans, since neither Obama or Usama are on their side politically and culturally one is as good as the other.

And that brings us to the really troubling part: the theological one. These folks went delusional with rage when Keith Ellison took the oath of office on a Koran, WHICH WAS HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT. Let me repeat: WE HAVE SEPARATION BETWEEN CHURCH AND STATE AND FREEDOM OF RELIGION, SO IT WAS THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT OF KEITH ELLISON TO TAKE HIS OATH OF OFFICE ON A KORAN. Yet these same people are willing to allow Jews that reject the New Testament to come sit in their church, and to join them in making meaningless prayers. Now keep in mind: it is very possible for a Muslim to swear himself to a religious right agenda based on the Koran.

But the reason why it has to be Judeo – Christian values (and increasingly Judeo – Christian – Mormon values) is THEOLOGY. Religious right Christians have absolutely no problem proclaiming that Muslims are going to burn in the lake of fire unless they accept Jesus Christ. But Jews? Well, that is when we get into the equivocating. It really does appear that the political and cultural interests of the religious right has affected the theology, especially for those that were not Christians (or alive) before the formation of the religious right. While some – many – most are unwilling to explicitly commit to dual covenant theology, they nonetheless see Jews as having some special place with God – some special spiritual status – that every other person that rejects Jesus Christ does not have. Were that not the case, THERE IS NO WAY THAT THEY WOULD CONSENT TO A RELIGIOUS SERVICE THAT SPECIFICALLY OMITS JESUS CHRIST AND FORCES THEIR FELLOW BELIEVERS – MESSIANIC JEWS – TO GO TO BE SEGREGATED INTO THEIR OWN SECTIONS JUST AS BLACKS WERE DURING JIM CROW! That is right folks, segregation and discrimination against Jews in a matter that would never be tolerated in the politically correct evangelical church against blacks, Hispanics, or even increasingly homosexuals is being perpetrated against Jews that believe in Jesus Christ. AND IF THAT IS NOT ANTI – SEMITISM AND ANTI – JUDAISM, WHAT IS?

I have to tell you, the only way that Christians would allow not only our Messianic Jewish brethren but the Name of Jesus Christ to suffer such ill treatment would be doctrinal confusion that causes them to believe that conservative Jews are “kinda sorta born again, or will be accepted by God in some way even if they aren’t.” Otherwise, what is the reason? What is the justification? The irony is that some of these same people were criticizing Rick Warren for allowing Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Hillary Clinton to speak at his TOTALLY SECULAR conference on AIDS are participating in this day of prayer. So what more proof do we need that the anti – Christ spirit is acting through and using the religious right in America? And why aren’t more of us rending our clothes over it?

My Main Concern With Barack HUSSEIN Obama: His Victory Would Make Liberation Theology Seem Rick Warren Purpose Driven!

Posted by Job on April 9, 2008

I have heard about the nightmare scenarios about a Barack Obama presidency: the anti – Christ thing, the Muslim thing, the inexperience thing, the far – left thing, etc. and to tell the truth none of them concern me terribly much. Allowing them to do so would require my dismissing from consideration the things that some of our past presidents – and our current one! – have done, or pretending that I find John McCain or Hillary Clinton in any way more to my liking. On the last point in particular, let me tell you that in their own way, each of them is immensely dangerous to the interests of Christianity!

But speaking of Christianity, do not mistake this as a statement that Barack HUSSEIN Obama is the one most worthy of opposition, for I legitimately feel that such is the case. Still, in Christian terms, there is one aspect of an Obama presidency that I find extremely worrisome: the potential that his presidency would lead to a mainstream acceptance of liberation theology. Perhaps not the radical and separatist version espoused by Jeremiah Wright and James Cone, but definitely a more commercialized, homogenized, domesticated, works – centered (PURPOSE DRIVEN?) version of it.

Now as you may know, liberation theology was given to the world by the Roman Catholic Church after the Second Vatican Council. For a time there was a chance of it becoming very influential to mainstream Catholic and Protestant Christianity, but the doctrine suffered a major setback when the very Roman Catholic Church that birthed it began opposing it in a major way in the 1980s. But were Barack Obama to win the White House, there is the potential that this system could again assert itself.

You see, many may underestimate what electing a black President would mean to America’s black citizens. It is not that blacks feel that Barack Obama would enact a raft of laws and policies favoring blacks. Rather, it would be a major symbolic victory, a sign that America is turning its back on its racist past and ready to accept a fairer future. It would signal that at long last, blacks are fully recognized and accepted as equals – as Americans – by a nation that in every way imaginable denied conceding such. You think this to be foolish? Well consider this: we are less than 25 years removed from blacks being regularly featured on television commercials. That occurrence coincided right about the time of the celebrity of Michael Jordan and the success of “The Cosby Show.” Many companies feared that featuring blacks in their commercials would result in white consumers shunning their products! And yes, it has been less than 15 years since blacks began to regularly play quarterback in the NFL. When asked about the controversy in the early 1990s, NFL head coach Jimmy Johnson stated on Fox Sports that a lot of coaches regarded blacks as not being smart enough to read NFL defenses. This trivia may seem to be just that, but it is evidence of how racism so deeply permeated and tainted everything in American life, even the trivial, and it explains why people that are black like me are capable of getting so worked up over things that appear to be so small! But to so many blacks, the election of Obama would signal that the long nightmare of being second – class citizens is about to end.

This is not to say, of course, that all or even most of these people are obsessed with racial victimization. Quite the contrary, conservative views on race such as those espoused by Bill Cosby are much more popular in the black community than is let on. Many blacks are very much concerned about the cultural problems in the black community: crime, illegitimacy, educational failure, etc. It is just that we are unwilling to discuss them in response to the baiting of conservative racists (who can be of any race) that wield these issues not intending to contribute towards solving them, but rather to use them to justify racism (including but certainly not limited to their own). But in Barack and Michelle Obama, such blacks see hope in that respect as well: Harvard Law School graduates, married, and parents of two daughters. Even Barack Obama’s drug use makes him only a more practical role model in the eyes of those who found the aforementioned Cosby Show “too perfect” and “evading the real problems of the black community”, sort of the ideal anti – hero for our cynical postmodern times. So yes, blacks would look to the Obamas as role models for themselves and the black community, and Barack Obama in particular to serve this role for the very troubled black male.

So were Obama to fulfill these dreams for black America, everything that took Obama to the mountaintop, that got him to that brass ring, that he used to bring to fruition the wildest fantasies of the descendants of slaves, would become absorbed into the shared collective black experience. And a great part of Obama’s everything is, of course, none other than Jeremiah Wright. Jeremiah Wright’s theology, doctrines, sermons, mentoring, etc. (the media is not shy about calling Wright Obama’s “father figure”) will all become a major part of the narrative of how a confused biracial young man went on to become the first black President. And of course, scores of black people will want to apply what worked so well for Barack Obama into their own communities, their own churches, and their own lives.

Let me say two things about this. First, it is the American way! All Americans of all races have been assimilating the traits of successful people, of leaders, into their own being since this country was founded. And yes, the cult of personality has always been very much a factor in American religious life. Second, with respect to the black community in general, there is already precedent. Who is unaware of the huge impact on black religious life that one Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had? Well, as important as Dr. King is to black America, King never became president (a fact that Hillary Clinton, for reasons that made no sense unless she was TRYING to lose the race, taunted supporters of Obama and King with back in January during the very week of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday … let me point out by the way that if Hillary Clinton and the Republicans in nominating McCain – a fellow that most Republicans don’t even LIKE – are giving Obama every possible shot at victory). So then, the effect of Obama on the black religious landscape might even exceed that of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s!

But that is just American blacks, right? Wrong. There has been a provincial, chauvinistic even, tendency among blacks to overstate this, but American blacks are quite often trendsetters. American blacks set trends for blacks in other regions: Africa, Latin America, etc. Now liberation theology is already more of a factor in those regions than in America, so Obama’s election would give the advocates of that belief system in those areas precisely what they need (and that speaks nothing of the Hispanic, Asian, and white adherents of it). And yes, blacks do set trends for whites in America. American whites, in turn, set trends for white people elsewhere in the world. So world, liberation theology brought to you by Barack Hussein Obama. What, Obama is a Muslim? Well, what better belief system for the secular moderate Muslims to buy into? And the secular moderate Hindus? Buddhists? People that are just, well, secular and moderate? And so on …

Again, a key component to remember is that it will NOT be the same liberation theology as advocated by David Cone and Jeremiah Wright. As a matter of fact, not even the black nationalism or Afrocentrism portion of the messages of Cone and Wright will be overly offensive in time. After all, the current image of Martin Luther King, Jr. is nothing like the man with exceptionally radical views and confrontational methods that actually lived. Does anyone remember that Muhammad Ali was once a member of the Nation of Islam? Nope. And even Malcolm X had his black history month commemorative soda cups sold by McDonald’s! The same will be done with liberation theology. It will be packaged and sold like a commercial product just like everything else in America, and when that happens, it may just find a nation – a globe! – of willing consumers in our churches just waiting to devour it. And why not? In their determined zeal to run away from the true Jesus Christ of the Bible, the cross, and the empty tomb, has not Christianity shown itself more than willing to devour everything else? This, people, is no different, and when you consider a great many of the other falsities ingested into popular Christianity over the ages, liberation theology, black or otherwise, is not so radical after all. Is it?
