Black Christians: Shame! Shame! Shame!

By: Lloyd Marcus

Increasingly, I am hearing the following mantra/narrative from Black Christians. “I’m voting for Obama because he is the lesser of the two evils.” This is an extremely weak veiled attempt to justify their racism and loyalty to The Black Code (never side with a white against a fellow black).

From a Christian point of view, how can any Bible believer conclude that Mitt Romney is more evil than Barack Obama?

Here are a few of the numerous things on Obama’s anti-Christian agenda. Obama supports same-sex marriage and has vowed to be an advocate for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. Obama supports abortion including infanticide (making it illegal to provide medical aid to a baby that has survived a failed abortion). Despite their strong will to survive, these babies must be left to die.

Massive governmental controls hidden in Obamacare include forcing Christian institutions to fund abortion services against the teachings of their faith. Think about that; the federal government demanding that Christians betray their biblical beliefs. Forty Catholic groups are fighting back by suing the Obama Administration. In typical liberal incremental fashion, our military has gone from a “Don’t ask/ Don’t tell” policy, to being mandated to celebrate Gay Pride Month under Obama.

Indisputable facts are available everywhere exposing Obama to be the most anti-Christian president in U.S. History. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/barton-calls-obama-americas-most-biblically-hostile-u-s-president/ I know some of you Black Christians will continue to stick your heads in the sand, refusing to accept the truth. Woe be unto you. Racism is evil, whether it comes from whites or blacks blindly worshiping Obama because of his skin-color.

So Black Christians, tell me Romney’s stated ant-Christian agenda. Grasping at straws, some will say Romney is a Mormon and Mormonism does not jive with Christianity. Well, you may have a point. However, Romney has not attacked Christianity or pledged to force Christians to betray their faith. Obama is boldly and dictatorially implementing his anti-Christian agenda. Regrettably, many of you black so-called followers of Christ realize who Obama really is and what he is doing. And yet, you will vote for him anyway because of your sick addiction to racial politics.

I have also heard Christians say, “Okay, I admit that Obama is destroying America, but I cannot vote for a Mormon.” Such thinking is illogical. Imagine, your home is on fire and your family is trapped inside. The Hells Angels motorcycle gang arrives at the scene offering to go inside to rescue your loved ones. How absurd would it be to reject their “God-sent” help because you disapprove of the Hells Angels’ lifestyle?

Remember this old joke? A guy was trapped on his roof during a flood. He prayed for help. Various volunteers came to his aid in boats. The man rejected them all, waiting for God to save him. The foolish man drowned. In Heaven, the man asked God why he did not answer his prayer. God replied, “I did answer your prayer. You rejected everyone I sent.”

America is on fire folks. Romney/Ryan are the most available firefighters. Thus, I believe they are “God-sent.”

I asked a black minister friend to further explain this “lesser evil” thing. He said the “lesser evil” in his mind is the economy. While not disputing Obama’s anti-Christian agenda, Obama still wins his vote because he believes Romney/Ryan’s plan will further the decline of America’s economy. In essence, this black minister of the Gospel is saying he values the economy over God’s condemnation of homosexuality, over the lives of babies and over freedom of worship.

And by the way, this minister thinking that Obama’s economic plan of spending our way to prosperity is superior to Romney/Ryan’s plan is idiotic, nonsensical and absurd. I can not believe my friend is that stupid. I believe citing the economy as his reason for voting for Obama is a weak excuse to mask his racism; pure and simple.

To all you, Obama-is-the-lesser-of-two-evils black Christian voters, you should be ashamed of yourselves. You “ain’t” foolin’ nobody. You are racists! May God have mercy on your souls.

Book Review: The Naked Constitution

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

You can find The Naked Constitution at Harper Collins
and/or purchase at Amazon.com.

Well, with that title in mind, you just know I’m going to love this book! 🙂

This book shows incredible research and loads of historical insight. If you love Glenn Beck, you will love this book. I have a section in my library for books on the Constitution and this book just earned a place on those shelves. (Yes, I have more than one shelf – what do you expect? I’m a political wonk.)

Like me, I’m sure you are sick to death of the Left trying to trash or amend the Constitution. Adam Freedman is a legal scholar who covers the true, ‘naked’ meaning of the Constitution and what the Founding Fathers really believed in. Unmasked freedom as opposed to the blatant Marxism we face today. In an incredibly intelligent and witty fashion, Freedman covers what was actually penned and why it is so important today. Literally life and death for our nation and for the legacy we leave generations to follow. Being the Constitutional expert Freedman is, he looks at current topics such as Obamacare and how they are unconstitutional in scope. This book is a magnificent examination of the building blocks of our nation.

Harper Collins:

In the spirit of Glenn Beck’s Original Argument comes a lively manifesto on the need to recover the original meaning of the Constitution.

From law school classrooms to the halls of Congress, America’s elites have come to regard the Constitution as a mere decorative parchment to be kept under glass at the National Archives. In The Naked Constitution, conservative legal scholar Adam Freedman defends the controversial doctrine of originalism as the only way to restore the Founding Fathers’ vision of American liberty. Freedman argues that the fashionable “Living Constitution” theory has been used by judges and politicians since the Progressive Era of the early 1900s to centralize power in Washington and to threaten individual freedom.

The Naked Constitution explains the fundamental themes animating America’s founding charter: limited government, federalism, separation of powers, and individual liberty. Freedman explores the nature of each of the three branches of government as well as the key individual rights enshrined in the Constitution to show how original meaning can help answer the most pressing questions facing America today: Can the president invade another country without the approval of Congress? Can he assassinate or spy on American citizens in the name of fighting terror? Do corporations have the same “free speech” rights as individuals? Can the federal government coerce states to adopt particular policies, or force individuals to buy insurance? Ultimately, Freedman calls for a new constitutional convention that will free the nation from capricious courts and idiosyncratic judges, and limit the growth of government for decades to come.

This book speaks to the very reason I blog and to the issues that face America today. It has won a special place in my heart and I can’t thank Adam Freedman enough for writing an incredible manifesto on the original intent of the Founders.

Not Your Typical 14 Year-Old, Malala Yousafzai

By: Imran O Kazmi

Malala Yousafzai

This is a short and sweet article, if you may call it such, in the avalanche of news reports and opinions on this brave kid… more of a critical look at what happened, why and what’s to come.

Much is being spoken today of the young girl from Swat, Pakistan – Malala Yousafzai, a 14 year-old who faced bullets just to fight for the right of the girl-child for education. While many genuinely condemn the attackers, the TTP (Tehrik e Taliban of Pakistan), many stand to gain profit politically or otherwise by aligning with Malala, after all she’s the hottest news topic! And anybody who’s somebody is talking about her. Why such a sudden sense of attachment with a girl who’s one of tens of millions in a similar fate, day in and day out? One is compelled to ask sans any reasonable answer.

Few are aware that TTP or not, the fate of girls like Malala in Pakistan is doomed from birth, a gender biased society that rewards “sons” and frowns at newborn girls to the extent that a woman may have to give birth half a dozen or more times to appease her husband and in-laws with a prized “boy” and if not, she’s either tortured and/or a new wife is brought in her place. In such a backdrop, we have sweet Malala, born in the summer of 1997 to Ziauddin Yousafzai… a poet, school owner and educational activist and lucky she was for in her environment, girls are often denied education and are made to work like slave labor at their parents’ home first and then the same is repeated at their husband’s home. Boys don’t fare significantly better either, poverty is almost raison d’etre of the masses. Few are aware that boys go through sodomization at the “Madressah” or Islamic Religious School oft times (much like the Church scandals, only worse) and are made to work as mechanics under tons of trailers, trucks or cars from a tender age, whereas in the US or Europe or MidEast they play with toys at home or playschool. Ironically, Islam has from its inception, advocated education or “Ilm” as the foundation for all Muslims, regardless of any discrimination and it is in the name of the SAME Islam that these girls and boys are persecuted by the TTP!

Malala grew up with the loving encouragement of her family, into an educational activist and blogger from the tender age of 11. Since 2009, she started writing for the BBC courtesy of her dad’s journalist friend who wanted a school girl’s view of the prevailing academic atmosphere. Later on, Adam B. Ellick of the New York Times made a documentary, with appearances at press conferences, on the status quo which resulted in the wrath of the TTP as death threats were made to her dad, Ziauddin. Seeing all this mayhem and madness, Malala decided to pursue politics so she could save her country.

Through the wicked circle of poverty, illiteracy and narrow minded perception of so-called custodians of Islam, the TTP, Malala met a bullet on October 9, 2012. While riding home in a bus from school, they were intercepted by masked gunmen who asked for her by name and threatened that if they hid her, they would shoot all of them. They shot her twice in the neck and head, and left her to die.

Today she’s still on a ventilator at the Army Hospital amidst “talks” of airlifting her to Dubai or Germany, something that should have been done much earlier. However, Malala is still not out of danger as I write these words and my fingers tremble to write what if she were to be no more? And then I remember the Swat school girlfriend of Malala, who, after her assassination attempt said, “Every girl in Swat is Malala. We will educate ourselves. We will win. They can’t defeat us,” – and I could feel hope somewhere in the dark corners of my mind.

Back in 2009, when Malala was learning to speak her mind from the beautiful yet chained frontiers of NWFP/Swat, I wrote a blog: http://learningpays.wordpress.com/, aimed specifically at using education to eradicate terror and poverty from the masses. It is “the” future were someone to action it.

Few takers, but an assassination attempt seems to have momentarily woken up all around, for how long I ask? And to what end?
