I have been accused of racism several times at Blogcritics because I chose to oppose policies of President Barack Hussein “kill list” Obama. Typically, when commenters could offer no logical argument, they reverted to calling the opposer a racist. Well, today even that charge has been taken from them. To what will commenters now resort?
A group of African American pastors, the Coalition of African-Americans Pastors, led by its founder, Rev. Williams Owens, announced that it will initiate a campaign to convince African Americans to reconsider their support of Obama, especially after he has attacked American families. This is a campaign by a group of conservative black pastors responding to Obama’s evolution on the subject, to his support of same-sex marriage.
Said Owens: “The time has come for a broad-based assault against the powers that be that want to change our culture to one of men marrying men and women marrying women. I am ashamed that the first black president chose this road, a disgraceful road.”
I guess Owens forgot that Toni Morrison and the MSM anointed Bill Clinton as this country’s first black president. But Toni Morrison now says that she was referring to Clinton’s adulterous behavior. Does that mean Morrison is defending adultery? Is she equating adultery with blacks?
Owens said that was upset that the NAACP claimed the gay rights moment was similar to the civil rights movement.
What I find quite funny is the verbiage posted by Jeff Dunetz: “… his [Owens'] attacks on this President are obviously racially motivated ….” “True the Reverend is also a person of color, but I am sure Cookie Roberts would say that George W. Bush did a Vulcan mind meld on the poor pastor and made him act racist.”
As is typical, Dunetz spouts his opinions, yet offers not one word of substantiation for what he says. He offers absolutely nothing to support his statement that the Owens’ attack (as he calls it) is racially motivated. But you can tell that his opinion must be taken seriously since he refers to a “Vulcan mind meld.”
Ironically, it has been fellow Mississippian Glenn Contrarian who has accused me the most of being a racist. Glenn, do you agree with Jeff Dunetz? Is Rev. Owens a racist as well?
And in his Blogcritics profile, as written by him, Glenn says that he is a “Strong Christian.” Glenn, does a Strong Christian believe that the Bible, the entire Bible, is the sacred word of God? Or is it just a book that you can cherry-pick through to support your current beliefs?
On both topics, racism as well as same-sex marriage, I anxiously await your comments, as well as comments by others.
BTW, just for reference, 1 Timothy, chapter 1, verses 9 through 11 says:
9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers – and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.
Also, for all you who are calling for stricter gun laws in the wake of the Aurora, CO, shootings, notice how verse 9 begins: “… the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers ….” That statement is true whether you believe in the Bible or not. Just remember, “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have them.”
But I have faith. Liberal commenters, never ones to be shy with their opinions, will come up with something.
But that’s just my opinion – worth exactly what yours is worth.
