Black Liberal Apostate AME Pastor: Mormons Face More Discrimination Than Blacks!

Posted by Job on February 2, 2008

Cecil Murray is the name, and liberal Christian apostasy is his game. This really is all you need to know about the guy: Chip Murray is a Senior Fellow in the Center for Religion and Civic Culture at the University of Southern California, where he holds the Tanzy Chair in Christian Ethics.

Now just like all Southern Baptist churches are not Rick Warren Mike Huckabee Brian McLaren Purpose Driven emergent apostasy centers, not all African Methodist Episcopal churches are liberal, or for that matter have people like Jamal Harrison – Bryant (and his father, an AME bishop) running them. Still, there is a huge liberal contingent in the AME church, and Cecil Murray and his Los Angeles First African Methodist Episcopal Church is part of it.

Now we have to ask the question: why is Cecil Murray giving an assist to Mormon Mitt Romney? First off, the guy obviously knows about the long history of Mormon racism in their policies, writings, and doctrines. Second, Murray is not an ideological or political fellow traveler with Romney. If Murray wasn’t liberal, would he hold a chair at USC? Nay, his holding a chair at USC is due to how he let his church be used as a political organizing hub for Tom Bradley and Jesse Jackson back in the day.

But this is the clearest indication. Please note, in the interview for Article6Blog.com, a pro – Romney site, that Murray all but says that Mormons are Christians too! And Murray also uses the “I have fought the good fight of faith” words of Paul as he was facing martyrdom TO DESCRIBE MORMON MITT ROMNEY’S PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN!

The most chilling part was Murray’s statement that Americans are not free to vote for whom they choose. He says that a person cannot choose to vote against a Mormon because of religious differences and claim that it is a private decision because voting is a public matter. So, Murray would be just fine with private citizens that vote against people because of race, gender, marital status, religion, or sexual orientation being federally prosecuted under the auspices of the Civil Rights Act! The initial stage would be, say, voting against someone because they are gay would be illegal. But the next stage would be to make voting against a candidate because they support gay marriage illegal! To borrow language from the Star Wars series: “Ah, the force (meaning spirit of anti – Christ!) is strong with this one Cecil Murray!”

You might be wondering why I have not yet explained why a longtime black liberal Democrat civil rights activist is giving an assist to a conservative Republican from a racist cult in the Presidential race. It has nothing to do with his taking a principled opposition to all bigotry. Black Democrats like this guy ignore racist attacks on black Republicans and the race tactics of white Democrats like Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings, and oh yeah Bill Clinton (whose racebaiting is only being opposed by SOME black Democrats because he happens to be running against one) all the time. You also don’t hear people like this saying or doing anything about the anti – Semitism on the hard left either. It is slightly more plausible that this fellow might sincerely remember the support that Mitt Romney and his father gave for the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Fine, except that George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush also supported the civil rights movement. As a matter of fact, George W. Bush worked for the Urban League while on AWOL from the National Guard duty that he was using to dodge the Viet Nam War draft.

So no matter what honorable secular motives you might want to ascribe to Reverend Murray, the truth is that it is all about Jesus Christ. Please recall the scene of Moses in the desert when he came down from Mount Sinai and saw the children of Israel defiling themselves with the worship of the golden calf (likely Baal worship, see this article from a site on ex – Mormon Christians on freemasonry and Baal worship) and said “Who is on the LORD’s side? let him come unto me!” in Exodus 32:26. Those who were on the Lord’s side stood up and proceeded to fight the Lord’s battle against the enemy. If you are on the Lord’s side, you will fight for the Lord. If you are not, you will fight for Satan. This fellow is a member of the apostate Christian left, so it is only natural that he will cast aside his political and racial considerations and lend support to his fellow apostate. Who knows, this guy has probably heard a ton of people like me tell him that his Christianity is false over the decades, so he feels moved to stand up for another group that people like me denounces as false. Of course, all he is doing is demonstrating that orthodox Christians who have been denouncing his liberal Christianity all these decades were right then and are still right now. A lot of evangelicals claim that we are driving people like this away from the faith and into apostasy and cases like this are why we need to stop. I say people like Chip Murray and Frank Schaefer (liberal/emergent son of the famous fundamentalist preacher Francis Schaefer) are why we need to keep going!

You do realize, of course, is the “you are for God or against Him!” talk is what the enemy hates. Satan wants you to think that you can be moderate, bland, inoffensive, tolerant, and open. A lot of evangelical Christians honestly define themselves largely by a rejection of fundamentalism that they have convinced themselves is Phariseeism and legalism. First off evangelicals, legalism is rejecting sola fide. If you care so much about that, why are so many of you seeking ecumenical relations with the neo – Pelagian Roman Catholic Church? Also, evangelicals, the Pharisees’ problem was rejection of Jesus Christ. Paul was a Pharisee, remember? So was Nicodemus. So were the many Jerusalem priests that Acts records as converting in response to Peter’s preaching. PLENTY of Pharisee zealots came to Jesus Christ. But do you know who didn’t? The Sadducees. The Bible does not mention a single Sadducee coming to Jesus Christ, and lest we forget it was the Sadducees that were the ones that were so cultured, modernistic, open, and tolerant in embracing Hellenism and the Roman government as opposed to the backwards old – fashioned Pharisee religious fanatics and the uneducated common riff – raff fishermen, carpenters, laborers, poor, etc. that made up the vast majority of the Jewish people.

So you might call the “Who is on the LORD’s side? let him come unto me!” cry as being close – minded, self – righteous, hateful, condemning fundamentalism. I say that it is the logical extension of what Jesus Christ said to the Laodicean church: that it is better to be hot or cold than to be lukewarm. Lukewarm people know the truth and won’t declare it or stand for it for fear of the people, because of their desire not to be rejected by the same world that hates and rejects Jesus Christ. They are the ones that ultimately assent to the constant demands that we compromise our faith in one area or another despite knowing full well that it is wrong. That is why lukewarmness is the quickest, surest path to apostasy and is also the hardest path to get off. And yes, lukewarm folk are very much self – righteous and prideful, because they are warm and tickled pink all over that they are not like that rigid backwards fundamentalist over there hating and condemning everybody. Well, folks, to see the logical conclusion of that type of thinking, read that Cecil Murray interview linked above or watch the video below and remember: you are either all the way for God or all the way against Him. There is no middle ground.

By the way, I just want you to know: this has nothing to do with politics. I truthfully could care less who you vote for. I was with Pastor Bill Keller on this “a vote for Romney is a vote for Satan thing initially, but what am I going to do, go tell you to run out and vote for John McCain? Mike Huckabee? Hillary Clinton? Barack HUSSEIN Obama? Ron Paul? Like any one of them is supposed to be “God’s anointed” like David or something? Or tell you not to vote at all? Far be it from me to do such a thing. Your vote is between you and God, so whoever you vote for make sure you pray and honor God in doing so, make it His decision and His vote and not yours. But as important as politics is, this is far bigger. This world, politics and all, is but for a time and will pass away. This is about where you will spend eternity, and that will be determined by where your heart is: with this world or 100% with Jesus Christ. Even if it is just a little bit with this world, Jesus Christ said that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. God is merciful and forgives sinful actions, but His grace does not cover wicked hearts. Remember: Jesus Christ said that you even have to reject your own mother and father to come and follow Him! Will you give up all to follow Him? Or will you turn aside and sorrowfully go away like the rich young ruler? Again, see the video below, it is obvious which path Cecil Murray chose. I pray for you today that you will choose a different one. Follow the Three Step Salvation Plan right now!
