'Exodus Now': Black Bishop
Launches Brutal Attack Against
Democratic Party

Big Government, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 9/29/2012 10:25:50 PM

You can't imagine how many videos I get sent to me. I make a point of watching some of all of them, but I couldn't stop watching this one:(Video)Note that Bishop Jackson is not endorsing Mitt Romney or the Republican Party and never once mentions Barack Obama. His testimony is merely an indictment of the Democrat Party, not from a racial or partisan perspective, but from a Christian one. Honestly, I would love to hear anyone attempt to argue against the points the Bishop makes about Planned Parenthood, same sex marriage, and most especially the Democratic Party's attacks against God

Problem is the bishop is asking the masses to choose between God and the freebies. The freebies will win.

Not antisemitism. Even many Orthodox Jews know better than to equate the modern State of Israel with Biblical Israel. Paul, too, distinguished between the Israel of God and the Israel that was not of God. As I said - some lousy Biblical exegesis. Read the Bible - you might learn something, as well as learn to distinguish Biblical teachings from popular religious shibboleths, which all too many Christians swallow and mimic and mouth because their teachers - who are often hirelings who serve for 10 shekels and a shirt - say so.

Several years ago, I met a lovely black lady who was a professional gardener. We got to talking and she brought up the WON. She didn't like him. As a Christian, she felt then that he as a muslim and tried to tell her fellow church members that. She also felt he was a socialist/communist. I hope she's busy telling her fellow church members "I told you so" loudly and clearly. I bet she is.

This is how the Christian Churches can only tell their congregations how to vote !

They can't legally tell them not to vote for Obama, due to IRS regulations.

BUT, they can tell them not to vote against those that have beliefs contrary to their religion, without naming names !!

I applaud Bishop Jackson's rousing exhortation, and wish there were a hundred more like him in the pulpits of black churches across the country.

He only quotes a few times from scripture, and he seems to look at the Bible verses through the lens of the contemporary issues to which he's applying them, which is backwards. (i.e. #1's point is correct, even if bluntly stated)

But most of us have seen or heard some evangelical preachers that cross that line far more egregiously than that; so we should cut Jackson some slack.

There's a lot of black preachers that are theoretically against abortion,gay marriage,drug abuse and other sins the left readily accepts.The question is how much does it affect their congregation's vote. I would say not very much.

One does not have to be Christian, black, a Bible expert, a white bitter clinger, or Jewish, to understand that Obama and the Democrats are a moral cesspool pulling the nation down the drain. All help in ridding the nation of their suicidal plague is welcome.

Poster one is correct. Christians have to learn a lot about context in the bible. We've become accustomed to applying everything to modern thinking. The pastor has a great moral argument for how we should govern ourselves in the society we live in, but the focus of the bible is the Gospel. It's about God not man. God will judge us based on his law not politics. The pastor's overall statement that blacks need to come out of the DP is absolutely correct. They cannot continue to walk lockstep with people with whom they differ significantly. They can no longer use the I don't agree with them on everything excuse.

Bishop Jackson's words ring true to me too, and I am grateful that men of good character are speaking up. #17, will God refrain from judging a group of like-minded people who are harming so many others just because their group is identified by a current political name rather than a geographical name? If this were true, then there would be no room for the Bible to hold lessons for us today since it was written in the past when the US was not a nation.

My family withdrew from a church (Protestant) because the leadership chose to go with the "abortion is between a woman and her doctor" instead of being between a woman and her God. It's not that one of the leaders might not believe what the consensus agreed upon and therefore, we could still attend the church because of the one prolifer pastor. For our consciences, the abortion issue placed an "umbrella" over everything the church did, so it could not be "blessed" by God. Being a sinful Christian does not mean to stay in sin, but to reject it and move on with grace and thankfulness for forgiveness. Pastor Jackson is a shining light in this momentous time in our country's darkening political arena.

Posted By: abuela10- 3/25/2014 9:13:32 AM     Post Reply
In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview.

Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, who oversees the IRS, made the rounds of four Sunday morning TV talk shows (all but CBS’s Face the Nation) to promote President Obama’s latest “pivot” to the economy, but ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CNN’s Candy Crowley failed to take advantage of the opportunity to press him on the IRS scandal. NBC’s David Gregory squeezed a question in at the very end of their session, but then didn’t follow up on Lew’s insistence “there’s no evidence of any political involvement.” Gregory: “Mr. Secretary, I’ll leave it there.

The 60 million yuan (£6.4 million) Jibaozhai Museum, located in Jizhou, a city in the northern province of Hebei, opened in 2010 with its 12 exhibition halls packed with apparently unique cultural gems. But the museum’s collection, while extensive, appears ultimately to have been flawed. On Monday, the museum’s ticket offices were shut amid claims that many of the exhibits were in fact knock-offs which had been bought for between 100 yuan (£10.70) and 2,000 yuan (£215). The museum’s public humiliation began earlier this month when Ma Boyong, a Chinese writer,

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.
