In the national firestorm over the firing of Phil Robertson over his stated belief in the Bible and opposition to sin, a clarion call can be heard for Christians of every stripe, and the Black Church specifically, to stand up for Faith in America.
It’s odd but not surprising that silence is the answer from Blacks in Christian America. Why? Because President Obama has effectively neutered the Black Church through his support of abortion and homosexual “marriage”.
In supporting this president by margins of over 90%, blacks in America have given away their credibility on opposing the very social sins their president so vehemently supports. Lets think about this for a moment.
As a Bible believing Christian, do you think for one moment that God will condone your capitulation to homosexuals because a black president told you to?
What will you say? That to stand up to Barack Obamas support of homosexuality would damage his presidency, historic legacy and place you on the wrong side of history?
You already know that won’t fly. True Christians understand that any unrepented capitulation on social issues is sin and will end in condemnation.
The emboldening of the Homosexual Lobby, there’s nothing “gay” or happy about it, is a direct result of President Obamas “evolution” on gay marriage. Further, the presidents language in this area has spawned an open contempt for Christian belief and tradition that leaves people of faith open to attack.
President Obama opposes faith based exemptions to abortion and contraception mandates, asylum for foreign homeschoolers, and vehemently opposes the right of Christians to practice their faith in public in any way. He supports teaching elementary aged school children about homosexual sex.
This is not the behavior of a Christian man. Our president even refuses to attend National Day of Prayer activities! Please take your eyes off of his melanin content and see the ugly truth.
No man of faith, would ever address Planned Parenthood, let alone ask God to bless them. They kill unborn babies in the womb for money. They lie about how much of that killing is taxpayer funded, forcing those that disagree with the barbaric practice to subsidize it anyway.
While I address this missive to the Black Church, I also beg my Catholic brethren to open their eyes as well. The Catholic vote in America went for Obama in both of his presidential elections. As reward for your support he has launched an unrelenting war on Catholic hospitals, adoption agencies and charitable organizations seeking to sever your Biblical basis in faith from your practice of the same.
Now that that which has been so painfully clear to many of us is laid bare before you, what will you do? Will you continue to cower as we are forced into silence by our own employees? Hard left Democrats want people of faith out of public life and view for good. Will you sit idly by giving your tacit permission?
Todd Starnes has a suggestion for those of us that want to make a difference:
I suggest that those of us who agree fundamentally with Robertson make clear that: 1) We are unashamed of our belief in Jesus and in biblical morality. 2) We stand against the mistreatment of all people, including gays and lesbians. 3) We will not support the radical redefinition of marriage, regardless of the cost involved, nor do we see cultural capitulation to gay activism as inevitable.
Now would be a perfect time to take a stand, but with grace, precision, and wisdom.
I will not go away quietly. Pray about your role in this fight. May God give you the courage and resilience to stand with me against the complete and utter degradation of our social mores while we still may stand.
