Black Obama Supporters
I enjoy listening to black Dems try to explain why they support Obama and attempt to make it seem like it is based on the issues and not his race. It is usually quite obvious that they don't have a clue about current events or the responsibilities of the POTUS.
For black people, being a Dem voter is never about the issues. If it were, pro-abortion candidates wouldn't be permitted to pimp for votes from the pulpit. I was a Dem voter for a number of years. The plan has always been to vote based on race in the primary, and based on party during the general. Not much has changed over the years.
I am so thankful that I no longer allow racial and social division to influence my political decisions. When ones political decisions are based on firm beliefs (as I've listed above). Being politically active is such more rewarding because you are doing it with Dr. Kings dream in mind.
Why Barack Obama is nothing like Dr. Martin Luther King.
When Dr. King protested in the past, it was no secret who and what he was protesting against.
"I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification..." (August 28, 1963)
"George Corley Wallace Jr. (August 25, 1919 – September 13, 1998), was a United States politician who was elected Governor of Alabama as a Democrat four times (1962, 1970, 1974 and 1982) and ran for U.S. President four times, running as a Democrat in 1964, 1972, and 1976, and as the American Independent Party candidate in 1968."
The race hustlers of today fail to mention...
"In 1962 the Confederate battle flag was placed on top of the South Carolina statehouse by vote of the all-white legislature."
"Ernest Frederick "Fritz" Hollings (born January 1, 1922) served as a Democratic United States Senator from South Carolina from 1966 to 2005."
"Hollings was elected Governor of South Carolina in 1958. He was governor from 1959 until 1963. While taking office he was 37 year old."
"During his governorship he signed legislation ordering the Confederate Flag to be raised over the state capital to commemorate the 100th anniversary of South Carolina's secession from the union, and to protest the growing civil rights movement."
The race hustlers, and those who claim to promote Dr. King's dream fail to identify the source of the flag they protest. Why? Because the continued fear of racial hatred is what allows them to continue to exist long after they are no longer seen as relevant by many.
For "thirty pieces of silver" and a seat a the Dem political table, civil rights leaders and black preachers from coast to coast will herd their flocks, load the church vans, and vote for the candidate with the (D) regardless of the issues. Abortion, the homosexual agenda, disregard for the right to life, and campaigning from the pulpit aren't a concern to these religious leaders as long as the "love offering" is paid in cash.
On this day, we celebrate MLK day to honor a man who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom and equality thanks to a President that felt that it was important that we recognize his greatness.
"At the White House Rose Garden on November 2, 1983, U.S. President Ronald Reagan signed a bill creating a federal holiday to honor King. It was observed for the first time on January 20, 1986, and is called Martin Luther King Day."
As Hillary said, "It took a president to get it done." However, after many years of pretending to support the civil rights movement, the President who got it done wasn't a Democrat.
Happy Martin Luther King Day. Remember, it is OK to have a dream, but at some point you need to "Wake Up Black America" to make your dreams become a reality.

"Trinity United Church of Christ"
Their statement says, "We are made up of the highly educated and the uneducated. Our congregation is a combination of the haves and the have-nots; the economically disadvantaged, the under-class, the unemployed and the employable."
Then they say, "The fortunate who are among us combine forces with the less fortunate to become agents of change for God who is not pleased with America’s economic mal-distribution!"
If this church was so concerned about "America’s economic mal-distribution" in America, when why are they not concerned with "mal-distribution" among members of their own church? Concern about "mal-distribution" in America is just more of the Socialist/Communist ideas of governmental equal redistribution of wealth. The concepts of the mal-distribution of studying, and working hard to increase ones economic outlook is never mentioned, because creating lazy government dependents is the objective.
Furthermore, where is the scriptural basis for their statement?
I have read, "Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."(2 Corinthians 9:7)
The churches statement should be that like giving you life, talents, or any other gift; giving to the poor is based on faith and a belief that God is the source of all of all our blessings. Giving is not based on a mandate by government or the church in an attempt to create equality. It is based on a free will that is a gift from God. Only those who want government to be seen as the ultimate force of good would believe that God is concerned about America making the distribution equal. God wants the worship, praise and faith in Him from individual believers for our blessings. Our praise and faith should not be for countries and governments that want to be seen as the source of blessings.
I would never attend this church, and IMO anyone who believes, has faith, and is able to read and understand God's word wouldn't either.
PAA: "Ask yourself this, does it really matter if one perceived racist does the same thing (change his views) as another perceived racist?"
Your example only hold true if the perceived racist was the leader of the church attended by someone seeking the office of POTUS. I think the topic of discussion is Obamas Church, its leadership, and their sudden need to change their mission statement solely due to the negative effect it had on Obama's run for president. People can change for the better (even racist). However, the church is suppose to answer to an authority much higher than a presidential candidate and it should not make decisions based on political pressure or approval. Therefore, when so-called religious organizations and leaders change for political reasons, it shouldn't go unnoticed. (And it doesn't go unnoticed by those of us who are concerned with things beyond the physical level.) One thing is for certain. Whatever is influencing their decision to change, it is not of God.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." (Hebrews 13:8)
