The skinny jeans. The nonfunctional glasses. The spray tans. The tight muscle shirts. The obscene shopping bill at Nordstrom. And the social justice sermons more fitting for the faculty lounge at Wellesley than for a Bible-believing church. Behold, the Woke Pastor, and he’s gunning for your White Privilege and ready to tackle America’s systemic racism, one vegan protein shake at a time. There are myriad examples of the Woke Pastor today, with ministers falling over themselves publicly to prove their progressive bona fides in the wake of George Floyd’s awful death. Let’s focus on two in particular. Both lead megachurches

Don't forget the tricked out "jar head" hair cut. Sadder still are the "Amens" from people who should know better.

Doesn't this call to mind the teaching of Jesus about the Pharisees seeking places of honor in the Synagogues, loving the greetings in the marketplace, and making sure everyone sees when they tithe? Beware the false teachers for sure.

I would never attend a church like that. I prefer a simple, very old fashioned church service, getting hard to find any more.

I am more worried about the far more subtle ways your more average church is catering to the BLM stuff. These two examples so easy as they are so obviously masquerading as churches. The silence of the pulpits generally is far more dangerous and widespread.

Terrific article. A perfect example of what conservatives do really well. It is well-written, using hard facts, logic and biting wit to drive home its points. The phenomenon of the Woke Clergy has made its way into the Catholic priesthood, as well, minus the hipster clothes. Give the devil his due. He knows The Scripture better than most.

Never heard of either one, but it is an excellent article. Completely in line with the End Times departure from the truth, where people "...heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears."

Sadly, too many "pastors" indulge their own egos with virtue signalling their superior morality by preaching how evil people like me do not bow before the god of political correctness. I stopped attending services when my priest dismissed me as a fool when I objected to being told how evil I was to not love the homeless guy doing a dump on my sidewalk when there is REAL evil in the world. At my office I was present when a coworker got the call from the police that their brother had been found murdered in the trunk of his car. And I am evil?

False preachers abound in today's fake Christian church. Serving Lucifer offering up those who will not study the Old Testament which Jesus taught from and tells the truth of what I AM THAT I AM God our Father creator really wants from His believers. And it is not go along to get along allowing evil to take control of His believers or allow any non believers to tell you what He wants.

It is a cash cow. From Oral Roberts through Jerry Falwell through Jim and Tammy Bakker through several names I don't remember all the way to Joel Osteen It's a cash cow. And come to think of it the Catholic church is not doing too badly either.

Those are not pastors of Christianity. They are Churchians. Fakers who mislead and bow to the world instead of to God the true King. Boy are they going to be shocked when God not only tells them that 'I do not know you', but then proceeds to deliver a spiritual spanking that might make an impression on them. One thing I would say is find the websites of churches in your local areas. We have several in our area and Hubby and I enjoy the sermons either on the local station, or online from their website. By their fruits shall you know them. Still holds true today.

Too many pastors and churches and even denominations (UMC) are twisting themselves in knots to be currently, culturally relevant. The Bible and it's teachings are old and don't fit today's trends, culture and needs...b.s.. The Bible and it's teachings are needed now more than ever. Sodom and Gomorrah are today's Chicago and Baltimore. These faux pastors are not fit to be in a pulpit. They preach what their sheep want to hear not what they need to hear. Joel and Creflo and thousands more pastors have found the magic formula to keep the money flowing in enormous sums to fund their extravagant lifestyles. They will face the judgment seat and have to account for their sinful ways.

I've never heard of this bunch, but as soon as I saw the names TD Jakes and Hillsong, I knew; fake Christianity and money grubbing speakers pretending to be preachers. They are among the lowest scum on the planet, in my opinion, but they manage to capture the seeker sensitive who think they can craft their own path to Heaven. People like these folks, Jakes, Copeland, Olsteen, Dollar (that's a name we can trust), and the rest pimp the Gospel for their own benefit. They're worse than the Pharisees of Jesus' day, and He called them whited sepulchers. I can't stand their hip clothes, church services where the speaker is on a platform with fancy lighting and the audience is in the dark. They spew nothing but lies. Even Southern Baptists are falling headlong into diversity signaling.

Last time I went to church (Methodist) back in the 90's they had a guest preacher who gave a sermon on why we should get rid of nuclear bombs. Haven't been back since.

We’re just one election away from full-blown socialism,” a man recently said to me during a short conversation. This sentiment has become increasingly common lately, even, notably, among the previously apolitical. (snip) only the spark, the George Floyd situation, and the fire were sudden, and something else could have triggered the blaze as well. The kindling, however, and the many-layered sea of morally dead and intellectually dry wood had long been burgeoning. And the spark only catalyzed the firestorm because we’d reached a point of critical mass.

“The coronavirus surge is real, and it’s everywhere” says Axios and most of the DNC media. Time to panic. They pile on, “The coronavirus pandemic is getting dramatically worse in almost every corner of the U.S.” (snip) Most hospitals require a COVID test before elective surgery. This means that patients coming to the hospital for a non-COVID reason are tested for COVID, and if positive are being counted as a “COVID hospitalization.” If a patient goes to the hospital for a new hip or cataract surgery, and happens to test positive for COVID, they are counted as a COVID hospitalization.

Prominent Fox News channel daily anchor Ed Henry was summarily fired yesterday as the #MeToo movement has apparently claimed its latest mark. The announcement came in an internal email to Fox News staff early Wednesday morning, followed by an email to journalists including this author that featured a screen shot of the internal email announcing Henry’s “termination.” The cause for Henry’s dismissal was alleged confirmation after a brief “independent investigation” of “a complaint about Ed Henry from a former employee’s attorney involving willful sexual misconduct in the workplace years ago.”

Since its founding in the 1820’s, the Democrat party has been the most pernicious and most schizophrenic entity in American politics. Today, the two dominant factions within the party are the ultra-wealthy beneficiaries of capitalism plus college educated sanctimonious elites (collectively the vast bulk of the ruling class) on the one hand, and Marxist indoctrinated self-described democratic socialists on the other. (snip) the establishment within the party and their financial and media benefactors believe they will be able to maintain control of the party by buying off their incongruent bedfellows with symbolism and minor compromises.

Joe Biden is hiding in his basement, but maybe that's because the rabid-left looters, rioters, and protesters are carrying out his presidential campaign just fine for him. What else can be concluded but that, given that President Obama has cynically admitted that the civil unrest covering the U.S. is "tailor-made" for electing Joe Biden? Here's a report from National Review: Former President Barack Obama told aides this month that the nationwide protests following the death of George Floyd are "a tailor-made moment" to help his former vice president Joe Biden defeat Donald Trump in November.

On Black Lives Matter's website, the organization's radical founders trace the creation of their movement "to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's murderer, George Zimmerman." Had those founders paid any attention to the trial, they would have known that Zimmerman should never have been charged with murder, let alone tried. The fact that he was arrested can be attributed to a stunningly blatant fraud orchestrated by the attorney who has been prominently milking the racial divide he helped create, Benjamin Crump. As it happens, the one person capable of exposing this fraud is George Zimmerman.

Cultural tyranny reigns in America, the last step before full-fledged political tyranny. (snip) When people can’t put a bumper sticker for their preferred candidate on their car, they have suffered a loss of liberty. No Republicans who have paid even a little bit of attention expect the prevailing powers in Democrat areas to safeguard their property, or even their lives and liberty. The very reason for establishing a government has been upended. In this area, liberty-minded people almost operate like a secret society sending quiet signals to one another. Democrats in this country do not feel they need to hide their political allegiance or culturally approved viewpoints.

What’s a CNN host to do when confronted with a guest who doesn’t accept The Narrative? In the case of Don Lemon interviewing former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, the answer is: tell him to “keep it down,” refuse to listen to what he is saying, and then abruptly cut him off. It’s not as if they are interested in anything that doesn’t support The Narrative. Much less explodes it with data on cops being killed. Unintentional comedy lasting 2 awkward, hilarious minutes.

Hundreds of former officials who served under President George W. Bush are gearing up to endorse presumptive Democratic Nominee Joe Biden. The group of officials—which include members of Mr. Bush’s cabinet and other senior officers—has reportedly formed a political action committee dubbed 43 Alumni for Biden. Mr. Bush was the 43rd president. “We know what is normal and what is abnormal, and what we are seeing is highly abnormal. The president is a danger,” Jennifer Millikin, one of the 43 Alumni organizers, who worked on Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign and later in the General Services Administration, told Reuters.

A group of protesters marched to the home of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Sunday afternoon, upset that she pledged to dismantle the police-free "Capitol Hill Organized Protest" zone, known as CHOP. Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant joined a group of dozens of demonstrators gathered at Durkan's home who were holding signs, chanting, and demanding she leave the area alone or meet protesters' demands. Durkan said last week that police would soon return to Seattle's East Precinct, which has been overrun by protesters who set up the CHOP zone, but gave no timetable.

With five months until the election, things couldn’t look any worse for the president of the United States. His approval rating is down to 40%. People are getting tired of his antics and the insults he hurls at his opponents. The media is increasingly confident that, come November, the voters will elect a new chief executive. This might sound like June 2020, but I’m actually referring to June 1948 — when President Harry Truman, a Democrat, was running to keep his job against Republican Thomas Dewey. The similarities between the 1948 and 2020 elections are striking.
