Black Senior Forced to Choose: Obama or Jesus.
American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/17/2014 5:14:20 AM

I had an extraordinary telephone conservation with my 86-year-old black dad, a lifelong Democrat and huge Obama fan. He called to ask me, “Is Obama anti-Christian?” Dad has been a Christian pastor for over 50 years. I said, “Dad, I have been telling you about Obama´s anti-Christian policies for the past five years.” Dad replied, “And I have not been listening.” Dad confessed that he simply could not bring himself to go against a black man in the White House. I felt that dad was expressing the sentiments of many blacks of his era. I asked him to explain why

So much for being judged by the color of his skin, while over-looking the content of his sorely lacking character.

In the future he can tell his grandchildren how he helped throw America away just so a half-black man could sit in the WH.

Perhaps if there is an upside to Obama, it would be that some blacks start to realize that tribal loyalty to the democrats is not bringing the "hope and change" they bought into.

Now, of American can just hang on for three more years and survive this extreme social experiment in governance.

If you´re "progressive" you´ve realised that Obama *is* Jesus, so you don´t have to choose between the two. He is the Alpha and the Omega, and He should not be forced to abdicate His throne just because of some stupid old constitution.

I can forgive an old black man for he may have truly experienced great injustice. Not so much for the nineteen year old knock out artist.

Lloyd Marcus is a gem.

#5, but if Lloyd Marcus´s father had been the color of Obama with the same parentage as Obama, he still would have been treated the way he was. It´s too easy to forget how things were for blacks. It doesn´t excuse the father´s attitude about Obama, but it doesn´t hurt to remember the actual, not imagined, indignities, threats, and actual physical harm suffered by blacks.

Lloyd Marcus is a treasure. It´s such a shame that his beloved father may be realizing too late that he is guilty of using the same thought process to choose a president of the U.S. that the racist people who abused him used. I.E., judging all black people by their color. Where the racists used the skin color to judge him and his cohorts as inferior, Mr. Marcus, the Senior, used the skin color to judge him worthy and qualified to lead this nation.

His error, and that of millions like him, has likely caused grave damage to our liberties. Mr. Marcus´ posterity will pay an enormous price for his mistake.

I didn´t grow up during the time that Lloyd Marcus´ dad did but when I was growing up, I was taught not to look at a person´s skin color.

I imagine there were white people outraged at how the blacks were being treated but could say nothing. I imagine there were white people being bullied. We are taught to forgive. Of course, we won´t forget because who can? We don´t have erase buttons. Every time a person voted for Obama to get back at whites, that person was voting out of revenge. We are called not to do that either. I would say when voting, character matters not color.

In today´s American society, simply put, Marcus Senior is a racist.

Those who live in the past will forfeit the present. I understand how this man feels about past injustices, and they were unjust, but I pray his son is able to convince his dad how very anti-Christian our president is.

From the very start when he insisted that "IHS" (symbol for Christ) be covered up for a speech at Georgetown, we knew who Obama was. After that, there were many more anti-Christian gestures. Here´s a partial list:

1. Refusing to host National Day of Prayer at White House.

2. Omitting "Creator" from quoting Declaration of Independence. SEVEN TIMES.

3.Urges passage of non-discrimination law, but without protections for religious groups. This eliminated conscience protection in hiring.

4. Obama refuses to allow the Cross in the Mojave desert to stand, despite SCOTUS ruling.

5. The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burial ceremonies at Houston National Cemetery.

6.Army issues guidelines, from on high, that no religious items including crosses and Bibles be read, used or given away during visits to Walter Reed Army Hospital.

7. Sees to it that the Air Force removes “God” from the patch of Rapid Capabilities Office (the word on the patch was in Latin: Dei).

8. Obama directs the Justice Department to stop defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

9. Obama hosts White House Iftar dinners in honor of Ramadan, but refuses to host National Day of Prayer there.

10. Breaking tradition, Obama´s White House avoids traditional biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays.

Half-black or not, Obama is an Alinski-indoctrinated con man who cynically leveraged race to get where he is and do what´s he´s doing to America without fear of impeachment and arrest.

No white man could have gotten away with any of that.

As a white Christian, I have been appalled by black Christians´ embrace of 0. For instance, when a pastor like T.D. Jakes, for whom I used to have much respect, has unbridled, unapologetic support for 0, it calls his spiritual discernment into question. Or it exposes a hateful vengeance mentality among blacks that supersedes any professed commitment to follow the teachings of Christ.

Fwiw, I was born in Dixie in 1962 and have lived in North Carolina, Virginia, and North Florida and I have never seen nor heard any white person directly address a black person in any crude or bigoted way. I am sorry that Mr. Marcus was treated deplorably by white people on several occasions in his life, but am quite certain that we have treated him with kindness and respect the other 99.9997% of his 86 years.

To Lloyd and your dad, The Gospel is not only about reconciliation with God for our sins through the death of Jesus, the Gospel is about realizing and accepting that we all - black, white, other - are sinners, are all condemned and unacceptable to God because of our sin, and are only made acceptable because of being redeemed by Jesus. Ephesians 2:11 talks about the ´hostility´ between the Jews and the gentiles, and the hostility being abolished only by becoming a ´new man´ in Christ. This true reconciliation is only possible through Christ. I am glad Lloyd´s dad chose Jesus!

We all have heard similar stories like the one of Marcus Sr.´s, and we can sympathize with him. But his underlying prejudice (that´s right) against white people for something that happened over a half-century ago, has overridden his Christian beliefs. This is the case with a lot of so-called Christian black pastors: they will gloss over the damage that the left has imposed on their own community in exchange for a shot at electing ANY black person vs. a white person. It´s an insidious form of payback that they´re not even aware of. Otherwise, how do you explain Jeremiah Wright and Sheila Jackson Lee? Who in their right mind would pay attn to either one of those contemptible wretches? When I was an immigrant child here, my family put up with a lot of similar treatment, but we got over it because we had fled a far worse place. If this man is truly a Christian, and there is little doubt about it, then it´s time for him to do what Paul said, and leave the things that are behind and move forward. And if he really believes what his Bible says, he should never support anything related to the president´s diabolic policies. It tells me he either doesn´t know his Bible very well, or if he does, he chooses to ignore principle in favor of racial retaliation.

It is fallen human nature #18, which Obama skillfully exploited. Obama is a student of Alinsky an evil genius at exploiting moral evil ( sin ) to enslave the sinner. The listing in the links to this article of Obama hostility to biblical values is revealing. He really has a mouth full of Blasphemy regarding himself as a rival to God!

I understand blacks wanting a black to succeed, but to stick with him in the face of his actions, and results, make the cheerleaders, and not just the blacks, look silly.

These democrat talkers on TV, who never criticize anything Obama does, like Juan Williams, have absolutely no credibility, to the point of acting like cultists.

So we have nothing of which to judge him on except his color.

I think for many black Christians, race trumps religion. It is sad. It is also just as racist to vote for someone because of the color of the their as it is to vote against someone for that reason. And just as much a sin.

What Lloyd Marcus has written is true and worthy. It´s a fact that blacks were treated just horribly in the century after the Emancipation Proclamation. True equality under the law was a long time coming. What Obama has done is try to tear the scabs off ancient wounds by encouraging Americans that divisive politics, particularly the anti-Christian, anti-American variety kind he practices, is moral. He couldn´t be more wrong.

As a child I had two black nannies who lived with my grandmothers, and these two Christian ladies played a major role in my upbringing. When I was six years old one of them took me to her Baptist church where I was the only white face in the congregation. I was treated wonderfully by everyone there.

One day I was with the other nanny while she was at the ironing board. She asked me what I wanted out of life. I replied, dollar signs shining in my five-year-old eyes, that I wanted a million dollars. Then I asked her what she wanted. She replied, "I want everyone in the world to love each other."

That pithy bit of eternal wisdom has always been with me. These two ladies and my grandmothers have long since passed away, but I know that there will be a joyous reunion in Valhalla. In whose kingdom? His. Jesus is first in my life.

Like Lloyd´s PASTOR dad apparently did, I´m going to rewrite Matthew 6:14-15 and instead of that old nonsense that says, "But if ye forgive men their trespasses," and replace it with the much better, "But if ye vote for Obama" and replace "but if ye forgive not," with "but if ye vote not for Obama"... Totally justifiable because it´s obvious Jesus was never as poorly treated as Lloyd´s dad. While I´m at it, I´ll take the magic marker and rewrite Mark 11:26, Luke 6:37, among many. And who was treated better than Paul when he wrote in a Roman prison, Ephesians 4:31-32? What an idiot (plus he was Jewish AND white). No that should read "Make sure you marinate in all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking your entire life..." "vote for a leader who forces others and you to do things against Biblical principles, yes even you black pastors all the much more, NEVER forgiving one another, even though God for Christ´s sake hath forgiven you."

Yeah, that ought to do it for starters.

Sure glad Pastor Marcus makes Scripture MUCH clearer and applies it so very well, like justifying lifelong bitterness and applying that bitterness to an entire race of people for his entire life. What a benchmark of faith and what a shining example of the same. Lloyd, don´t waste your time. If Scripture hasn´t gotten him to choose between Obama and Jesus and the freakin´ guy is a PASTOR, what makes you think proving Obama is anti-Christian will make a difference? And by the way, you might want to ask your dad what being anti-Christian means or have him simply hold up a mirror. Good grief.

The black community needs to be taught a course in TRUE history. To wit, after the civil war, the controlling republicans in DC ran over the remaining whites in the South and were giving the recently black pretty much what the wanted. My own great-great grandfather was murdered by is freed slaves. No one was tried for that. As such, the Dim politicians in the South were fairly powerless in Congress, so to fight back, they form the KKK in order to put the blacks "in there place". Was that wrong? Absolutely. And all of the Jim Crow laws that were passed and enforce in the South were enacted by, you guessed it, DEMOCRATS. And even up to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Dims attempted to filibuster that law. It took the majority of REPUBICANS to get it passed. But, there were and are a segment that saw an opening to use this as a way to create lifelong dim voters. Just promise and give them freebies. Paid for by taxing the rich whites of course. Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton and others come to mind.

That said, I always read Lloyd Marcus. He is a VERY staunch Tea Party supporter.

One of the worst injustices done to Blacks is to have robbed them of their ´true´ history, and the parts the Republicans and Democrats ACTUALLY played in their history. If they had been taught the truth, they would never have supported the left all these generations and Lord knows what better lives they would have had. Sad.

I wonder is Eric Holder reading this thread on his NSA feed? He wanted a discussion of race in America! The author of this article Lloyd Marcus sounds like a good character so he speaks well for his Pastor Dad. Some posters are going a little too hard on him. There is great evil befalling the nation because of Obama who gets elected promising to rise above the racism of the past yet he makes it worse. All those who suffered from it in the past and over reacted to this suffering must share the blame for Obama´s evil. The ideal is to return good for evil! Without that the evil just keeps on reverberating through the generations!

Sorry folks this is red herring with too black not black enough, I never suffered any of that so how do I know what he felt, and it´s all true. But few including blacks suffered more than the Jews of Hitlers era, they went on to found a nation, it has been open for participation by their hateful neighbors, many of whom live and work there. They suffered they were beaten robbed and tortured for being Jews. When it was over the citizens of the world rallied to their cause while others continued to hate them and still do today.

The Jews said so what, we will move forward under the slogan of Never Again, and they did and they still do. Do people so abused have foibles some anger, and perhaps even hatred, yes but so what, they are not moving like an ignorant mob following the Pied Piper right?

How many of the white people who inflicted Mr. Marcus´ scars do you suppose thought of themselves as Christian? He experienced what they were capable of doing to him. From that perspective, it isn´t as difficult, for me, to understand how Mr. Marcus could deceive himself, or be deceived into believing white people might try to prevent a black man, who claims to be Christian, from becoming POTUS.

Considering Mr. Marcus is a Democrat, and a black preacher who has preached to a black congregation for fifty years, he is certain to have been inundated with Democrat propaganda. Whom to believe, the white men who are telling you not to believe "the lies" and to vote for the first black President of the United States (something you probably never dreamed would be a reality in your lifetime), or those who are telling you all the bad things about him that you do not want to believe?

I would venture a guess that it was a difficult decision for some (not all) of the few black people who did not vote for Barack Obama, even though they knew the things said about him were true. They may have thought long and hard about the flaws of some of the white men who have held that office.

Conservatives have been told, and believed a lie or two by Republicans over the years, and some Republicans even have planned, and worked, to destroy any opportunity for "extreme" conservatives to ever become POTUS. Many of us trusted them for a long time, remained loyal and sent our money, even when the proof of their lack of respect for us was right in front of our faces.

I´m thankful Mr. Marcus is finally coming to realize the truth. (Thanks to his wonderful son.) Many eyes are beginning to be opened on both sides of the aisle. I pray God that many more eyes are opened and that once their eyes are opened they will do as Mr. Marcus says he will do and stand for righteous principles.

There are so many shades and tones of skin color so how can just one be counted superior?
The black population even discriminates against some shades too.
The Obama supporters have linked him to his skin color without understanding his is only skin deep and he hates them all.
No one is forced to choose an evil over Jesus.
They choose to do so because they do not want the displine it takes to live by love over self gratification.

An 86 year old man lived during the lifetime and death of Martin Luther King. King was a Republican - and obviously would not have voted for representation by George Wallace´s party. Then, King knew his history. Way too many with the same color skin, do not.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

McAllen, TX -Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, freed after years of captivity in Afghanistan and returned to active duty this week, has retained an attorney — a military law expert from Yale. Eugene Fidell, who teaches military justice at Yale Law School, told the Los Angeles Times that he has been representing Bergdahl for about a week and is working pro bono. Fidell said he has received a variety of reactions to his decision to work with Bergdahl. "There are people who harbor ill will toward my client," Fidell said, but at the same time he has received emails "wishing my client

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

(Video) FALFURRIAS, Texas—A natural gas pipeline being constructed in the western portions of Brooks County is rapidly becoming a super-highway for illegal immigrants struggling to sneak around the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint located in the county. Workers report regularly seeing illegals making their way along the pathway of the pipeline. Brooks County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Walden brought Breitbart Texas to the construction area during a ride-along. He said the pipleline has already become a massive flow point for the illegal immigrants who struggle to find their way north to an area where they can be picked up. Pipeline construction workers

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

To the dismay of Jon Stewart, Hillary Clinton did not make her big announcement on "The Daily Show" on Tuesday. The comedian and talk show host opened his interview with the former secretary of state and possible presidential candidate by praising her memoir, "Hard Choices," before pivoting to the question Clinton is asked everywhere she goes. "It´s an incredibly complex and well-reasoned and eyewitness view," Stewart said of the book. "I think I speak for everybody when I say no one cares. They just want to know if you´re running for president. Are you?" "I was going to make an

Constitutional lawyers backing a planned House Republican lawsuit against President Barack Obama told a congressional committee Wednesday that the action is justified because Obama has exceeded his powers in carrying out his health care law. Attorneys allied with Democrats in opposing the suit said it´s the GOP that´s going too far by trying to resolve a political dispute by giving the question to the courts to decide. The lawyers appeared Wednesday before the House Rules Committee, which is considering legislation authorizing the House to file the lawsuit.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Tuesday night that it would refuse to allow its director of political strategy to testify Wednesday before a Republican-led House committee investigating whether the administration had illegally conducted political activity in the West Wing. In a letter to Representative Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the president’s top lawyer said that as a member of the executive branch the political director, David Simas, had immunity from being compelled to testify before Congress. Mr. Issa’s committee subpoenaed Mr. Simas last week, contending that the White House should not

Rupert Murdoch´s 21st Century Fox (FOXA.O) said it made a bid to buy media conglomerate Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) but was rebuffed. The bid was worth roughly $80 billion, or $85 per share in cash and stock, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters. Time Warner´s stock jumped 22.5 percent to $87 premarket as the New York Times reported that Murdoch was determined to buy Time Warner and was unlikely to walk away despite the rejection.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
