Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. Died In Vain, Says Black Pastors In Response To Federal Judges Ruling

Michigan, March 21 2014- Judge Bernard Friedman of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, after having presided over DeBoer vs. Snyder, a lawsuit that addresses both the 2004 voter approved amendment to the Michigan Constitution that defines marriage between one man and one woman and the state adoption law, has ruled the amendment preserving marriage to be unconstitutional.

A coalition of over 100 Black Detroit Pastors, led by Rev. Dr. Roland A. Caldwell and Pastor Lennell Caldwell, have hosted both a press Conference and a rally in support of Michigans Marriage Protection Amendment since Judge Friedman has been residing over the case.

The pastors have issued a swift response.

Judge Friedman has negated the vote of 2.7 million voters in the State of Michigan. Moreover, he has said to the almost 70 percent of Black citizens who voted in favor of marriage protection that our voting rights are no longer protected. Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and our forefathers apparently died in vain, remarked Rev. Dr. Roland A. Caldwell, Pastor of Burnette Inspirational Ministry, Detroit, Michigan.

Minister Stacy Swimp, Gospel Activist and Founder of Revive Alive, Flint, Michigan, stated, It is a sad day for Michigan that Judge Friedman has ruled that preserving the only civil institution that unites children with their mothers and fathers is unconstitutional. Rest assured, however, that we shall continue to fight for the rights of children, and for our faith, for our families, and for our religious freedom.

We call on all the sitting County Clerks across the State of Michigan to refrain from issuing redefined marriage licenses, as stated by the Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, until the matter is fully determined on appeal, concludes Rev. Lennell Caldwell, First Baptist World Changers International Church, Detroit, Michigan.

Carrying the Weight of Regret, By Brooke Bowen, A Post Abortive Mother

Often times as I begin to grow older and reflect back on my life, I realize that the sins I have committed myself have cause much more damage to my soul than the sins others have committed against me. I sit daily and reflect on how a split-second decision changed my life forever. I cry and weep and wish with every fiber of my being that I could go back in time and change some of the things that Ive done in my life. I try my damnedest to go back and right all of the wrongs Ive ever committed in my life, but theres one wrong that I can never make right and that kills me inside.

Abortion truly is a fifteen minute procedure that last a life time…. and if I could give anything to take back that 15 minute procedure, I would. 

When I entered the abortion clinic on that first fateful day… I entered that of a broken young girl just out of high school. I had dealt with so much that year….rape, abuse, stalking, and now I was pregnant with a man who had done the most evil things imaginable to me.

All my life I had identified as pro-life, but its crazy how quick flawed human beings will throw all of their ideals out the door as soon as they are in a difficult situation. I promised myself that my situation was different, I had extenuating circumstances…what I was doing was okay, even though in my heart I knew it was wrong.

I remember sitting in the small white waiting room with nurses and the woman who was to perform my abortion…. tears streaming down my face, this was never somewhere that I ever imagined myself being. I remember the nurses holding my hand, consoling me… they were so kind. Honey, you dont need to cry. Anyone in your position would be doing the same thing as you, no matter what they say, the nurse assured me. I was told to come back the next day due to the twenty-four hour waiting period law that was instilled in Kansas. They were going to do a two-day procedure on me due to some high-risk problems and size issues.

I came back the next day and sat in the waiting room for about an hour next to several other women. I looked around at the other women, each face sad, broken, scared… no one wanted to be there. It felt almost as if some of these women were in the clinic because they felt they had no other options. Some women were even there with their other children. I was finally called back to do the beginning of my procedure. I was to have laminaria inserted into my cervix to dilate it and prepare me for the actual surgical abortion the next day.

The actual laminaria insertion took no longer than two to three minutes. I was given some instructions on how to take pain killer and how to prepare myself for the procedure the next day. Its crazy how the human mind works, because as soon as I got home…I instantly felt this massive surge of regret. I didnt want this to happen….no, no,no. I couldnt go through with this. I had to stop it. This baby was half me. I would be killing a part of myself to get back at someone else. I would be getting rid of something innocent because I couldnt handle the things someone else had done to me.

I began frantically searching on the internet to find ways to reverse abortion. I found a website of a Catholic Hospital in Chicago that had been successful in removing luminaire sticks and allowing pregnancies to go to term. I read that I was at a much higher risk for pre-term birth and miscarriage, but some chance at life was better than none. I kept telling myself, Dont be scared of the angels of death until theyre knocking at your door. There is always hope.

I called the hospital and was told that I needed to get the luminaire sticks removed within 24 hours if I wished for the reversal to be successful. I was told not to go to an Emergency Room, as Emergency personnel would not be comfortable doing something like this. I needed to either come to the hospital in Chicago or go back to the abortion clinic and just have them remove the luminaire. 

 

I waited until 8:00 AM the next morning to go to the clinic, this would have been about the same time the drive to Chicago would have taken me. I was stressed, crying, frantic, every scared and nervous emotion you could think of…but I still had hope. I was taken back to the surgical room, and I asked the nurse, “What would happen if I just had the luminaire sticks removed? Can I just not go through with the procedure?

She looked at me, eyes wide and nervous looking, Oh, honey….Dr.Nauser already snipped the umbilical cord yesterday. Its gone.

With those words my entire hopes has been crushed. It hit me so hard. Even if I had driven to Chicago, my efforts would have been in vain. I had just made the worst decision of my life…and it was all over right then. Dr. Nauser entered the room, and gave me twilight anesthesia and then performed the abortion. I woke up about an hour later.

I felt no physical pain, none at all. I was numb, but the emotional pain was the worst type of pain I had ever felt in my life. The kind nurse was still in the room with me watching me. She squeezed my hand when I woke up and told me, You made the right decision. You would have looked in that babys face every day and remembered all of the pain you went through. It would have hurt you so much. She held my hair back when I stood up to throw up from all of the medicine in my system, or maybe the nerves….I could tell she sincerely thought she was helping me, I dont doubt her intentions at all…but, in reality, I believe that she hurt me more than anyone has ever hurt me in my life.

I think that a lot of womens rights advocates argue that abortion is this sort of powerful weapon that will save a woman from abuse of feeling the pain of her rape daily. Im here to tell those advocates my story. The story of how I laid in bed that night and cried and cried and cried…more than I have ever cried after my rape or after a man hit me or after I had a screw driver held to my face. I laid in bed shaking….just thinking that maybe, just maybe…that baby had been sent to me as a gift by God. God sent me that gift as an apology to all of the wrongs that had ever happened to me in my life. 

What better gift than motherhood? What better gift than a tiny person who will unconditionally love you, no matter what your faults areand I have a lot of faults.

This was to be my beautiful thing out of a bad situation, but I was too foolish to see. I know that when I wouldve held my baby for the first time in that delivery room, I finally would have felt closure for my situation…and to this day I still have not found that. I struggled a lot with determining whether or not my unborn baby had a soul yet before I got my abortion… I now know that that baby had a soul, because if they didnt…my soul wouldnt feel so empty.

I know that my baby had a purpose of being there, because if they didnt…God would not have sent them. I know that they would have been a beautiful soul and a world-changer, because great things come out of adversity. I know I wouldnt have regretted motherhood or giving life. I have never met one woman who regretted giving life, but I have met so many who regret abortion…and I am one of those women. 

I know that my little baby was a girl.

Every time I see a cute little biracial girl running, dancing, smiling, doing anything…I imagine my baby. What would she have been like? A Carmel-skinned, big-haired cutie? Would she have had brown eyes or blue eyes? Would she have looked like me? Would she love horses? Would she sing? Would she grow up to be a republican or democrat? I dont know…but I do know one thing. I would have loved her no matter who she wouldve been or what she wouldve done.

I still love her, even though she never was, as she was half me and her mere existence taught me so much.

I feel she was a martyr. She brought me to God in all of brokenness and guilt. I now know that God will forgive me, even though I do not forgive it… but what hurts me the most is not knowing whether my baby will forgive me. I took so much from her. I took the beauties of life away. I took the amazing things that I take for granted every day of my life that I am completely undeserved of…. The stars, the moons, the clouds, galloping on a beautiful horse across an open field, her first kiss, her first steps, her first word, her first everything….

I know where her body is torn apart in little pieces in a medical waste dump, thrown away like trash….but I dont know where what matters, her soul, is. If shes in Heaven sitting on Jesuss lapsmiling and laughing with the other aborted and miscarried babies or if shes stuck as some sort of little ghost in Purgatory… trapped in the walls of the evil place that is the abortion clinic. I dont know if she can even fathom the complexity of my situation, how much I regret, how someone who took her life still loves her.

I dont know if shes sad I didnt want her. I dont know if shed be happy to have a sibling on Earth, or if shed be jealous and upset that I had another baby. What makes that baby wanted and her not? The mere means of conception or the relationship with the father? Would she ever even want to meet me if I ever undeservedly made it to Heaven?

I will never know these things in this life on Earth, and I carry that with me every day. It is an immense weight I hold on my shoulders.

 A weight that will never leave.

I will never be able to be one of those happy older women who sits and reflects on their life and says, No I wouldnt change a thing! I will always have this one major regret… I will have it until Im 95 on my death bed….and it sincerely kills me inside. 

DO SCOUTS HAVE AN OATH TO GOD AND COUNTRY?

The Boy Scouts of America voted this week to end their policy  banning youth who are openly practicing homosexual behavior.

Over 60 percent of The National Council of 1,400 delegates from Scouts across the country voted to lift the ban.

In his original book on boy scouting, Baden-Powell introduced The Scout Promise:

Before he becomes a scout, a boy must take the scouts oath, thus:
On my honour I promise that

I will do my duty to God and the King (his country)
I will do my best to help others, whatever it costs me.
I know the scout law, and will obey it.

In the Word of God, Jesus said: If you love me, keep my commandments. (John 14:15)

It is clear, therefore, that in order to do ones duty to God, one must keep His commandments and uphold his moral guidelines in the orientation of our lifestyle.

For the Boy Scouts to allow openly homosexual (which obviously means practicing homosexuality as a lifestyle) boys into the Scouts, they have violated their own Oath and have signaled to the Nation that they no longer embrace duty to God.

Thus, they have also signaled that they no longer embrace Duty to America, as this nation was founded upon Judeo-Christian values.

Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.– Proverbs 22:6

I dont know what direction the Boy Scouts shall go now, after abandoning both God and Country, but I do know that Christian parents must not follow the lead of the secular society and that of the Boy Scouts of America, who have voluntarily sacrificed their moral credibility.

In the book of Romans, Chapter One, the Bible makes some very strong assertions regarding  those who practice homosexuality:

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.- Romans 1:28-32

Christian parents must sustain their covenant with  both God and country by refusing to submit to ideas and agendas which reject God and morally corrupt our children.

It is my sincere hope, therefore,  that every Christian parent in America shall immediately pull their sons out of the Boy Scouts of America, as a demonstration of love towards God and country.

ARE HOMOSEXUALS UNTOUCHABLES?

Michigan Republican National Committeeman, Dave Agema, has been under relentless and vicious attack from advocates of same sex marriage, solely on the basis of having reposted an article which proposes a number of health risks and social consequences the writer claims are associated with same sex relationships.

The article: Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuals, by Frank Joseph, M.D, suggests that their are a number of negative consequences to the lifestyle of homosexuality.

The author of the article also addresses what he calls The Homosexual Agenda, among other things.

Whether one agrees or disagrees with the opinions of the article, it is clear that the author poses some compelling points that are worthy of civil debates.

Dave Agema simply offered the article for such a debate to occur.

Nevertheless, in an attempt to suppress Agemas constitutionally protected right to freedom of speech, even some so called Republicans have publicly come out against him, calling for his resignation, accusing him of being a bigot, hateful, etc.

Allegedly. the Libertarian Party of Michigan has also called for Agemas resignation, accusing him of actions that are unacceptable, sickening and reprehensible.

All this, simply for posting a study on a facebook page?

Since when it is somehow a hate agenda to have a discussion about the potential risks of human choices or lifestyles?

If I were to post a study on the risks of alcoholism, would that mean I am intolerant and hateful? What about if I posted an opinion about the risks of having children out of wedlock ? Would that constitute being reprehensible?

Have we finally arrived to a place in society where some special interest groups can take aim at anyone they choose to in society, while they remain a protected class, with no one being able to so much as question anything they say or do?

In what way does intolerance relate to any American offering his or perspectives on a specific topic?

Most important, how is Dave Agema guilty of hatred and intolerance, simply for reposting the conclusions of a medical professional that are seemingly supported by Empirical evidence?

The fact is that no one has been able to specifically highlighted comments directly from Dave Agema that personally attack or demean those who self identify as homosexual or lesbian.

It seems to me that the lesbians and homosexuals see themselves as untouchables (meaning  exempt from criticism), who no one can call into moral question, lest they are subject to name calling, public and professional harassment, and relentless ridicule.

They appear to believe that anyone who refuses to endorse or support their views are somehow perverted, confused, etc.

Furthermore, they appear to try to bully and intimidate opponents of their lifestyle choices into conformity.

At the end of the day, if Dave Agemas critics are in disagreement with the information from a medical professional that was reposted on Agemas facebook page, they should respond with reasoned debate, seeking to  discredit the information shared, rather than trying to personally and professionally discredit Agema.

Eleanor Roosevelt was quoted as having said: Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

It seems to me that those who are outraged at Dave Agema for merely posting the opinions of a medical professional on the issue of homosexuality are perhaps guilty of small mindedness.  Rather than discussing the ideas offered in the article Agema posted and asking Agema his views on the ideas, they focus on attacking Agema personally.

Mrs. Roosevelt would likely be very disappointed by the reaction of what appears to be 21st Century untouchables.

KWANZAA, LIBERALISM AND HYPOCRISY

Starting on Dec. 26th through January 1st, millions of Black Americans will be celebrating Kwanzaa, which is widely known as a week-long African-American Cultural Festive.

Kwanzaa was founded by Maulana Karenga, chair of Cal State Long Beachs Department of Africana Studies, in 1966, in what he termed an audacious act of self-determination.

Karenga, a noted atheist and Marxist, teaches that Kwanzaa is based on seven principles, which he calls the “Nguzo Saba” (the seven principles of African Heritage), which he alleges is a communitarian African philosophy: the best of African thought and practice in constant exchange with the world.

The seven principles of Kwanzaa are allegedly Swahili terms.  Each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the principles:

  • Dec. 26th, Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
  • Dec. 27th, Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
  • Dec. 28th, Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers and sisters problems our problems, and to solve them together.
  • Dec. 29th, Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.
  • Dec. 30th, Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
  • Dec. 31st, Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
  • Jan. 2st, Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in God, our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

I have seen many attack Black Americans for celebrating Kwanzaa, because its founder is atheist and a confirmed Marxist. Others condemn it for different reasons.

I take a different approach.

I dont have a problem with Black Americans who do choose to celebrate the principles of Kwanzaa. The main reason is because the principles are all quite conservative in nature, albeit I don’t know any Black Conservative who recognize Kwanzaa or celebrate it.

It does appear, therefore, to be a liberal outlet, so to speak.

That leads me to believe that Black liberals who are professing to embrace these so called principles are actually deceiving themselves, because liberalism is a direct affront to each of the principles taught in the Kwanzaa celebration. I would, quite honestly, be very excited, if liberals where to actually put into practice these principles which they so superficially celebrate.

For example, if liberals are sincere in wanting to “maintain unity in the family and nation”, why, then, do they not fiercely opposed the “Great Society” policies of the Democrat Party which have done more to break up and break down Black families than chattel slavery ever could?

I have never met a Black liberal who truly embraces the kind of self-determination Kwanzaa proposes, which calls for one to define themselves and speak for themselves. Black liberals have been indoctrinated by an ideology which makes it instinctive to malign, slander, and assassinate any idea, definition, or expression that does not espouse liberal Democrat policies.

Liberal Black Americans do not self-define. They are defined by the Democrat Party and they fight to promote those definitions.

Liberal Black Americans do not believe in “collective work and responsibility”. If they did, they would not spend the dollar bill outside of their communities after circulating it only one time (dollar velocity). Moreover, they would absolutely support free market solutions in business, education, and health care, which would result in a stronger local economy.

They don’t want to “solve problems together’, but want the government to solve their problems.

When I was growing up, most of the local businesses were owned by local residents. That quickly changed as I reached my teens. Now, most of the businesses owned in predominantly Black neighborhoods are owned and maintained by people who do not live in the community. In many instances, who are not even American? Here again, a glaring hypocrisy.

Restoring our people to our “traditional greatness”? I wonder if that includes the legacies of both African and African-Americans who espoused individual responsibility. Frederick Douglass once said: “A man may not get all that he deserves, but he must work for all that he gets”. That is a direct indictment of Obama’s HHS mandate, which strips Americans of the responsibility to work. Nothing great about that. Certainly nothing “authentically” Black or African about that. Most of all, nothing American about that.

Predominantly Black urban communities can reasonably be described as “war zones”. More citizens are murdered therein than both Iraq and Afghanistan combined. Although trillions of dollars in poverty funds have been allocated there over the past 47 years, these communities are not more “beautiful” than before the so called “war on poverty”, but are, in fact, worse than they were before the declared war on poverty.

Finally, there is the so called principle of “Faith”. I cannot accept that Black liberals believe in God with all their hearts, in their children, etc. Not when they are cooperating with the genocide of millions of unborn Black Children, fighting against school choice, and championing liberal democrat policies that are destined to deny our children of the opportunity to experience the kind of American exceptionalism that our Conservative forefathers fought to guarantee us.

Black conservatives, on the other hand, live every single one of the so-called principles of Kwanzaa. The difference is that we base our principles on the Word of God and the principles of the Constitution of the United States of American, which transcend culture or “color”.

We didn’t need to look for guidance from the roots of Marxism, no matter how appealing they may be on the surface. We know that it’s not real. The proof is in the hypocrisy of those who claim to practice Kwanzaa.

So, in the final analysis, my intent is not to condemn the one who claims to practice Kwanzaa for doing so. Instead, it is to call into question the hypocrisy of those who clearly do not practice what they preach.

UNION PROTESTERS GREET PROJECT 21s STACY SWIMP WITH RACIST TAUNTS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT THIS WEEK!!

Steven Crowder wasnt the only member of the National Center family having interactions, so to speak, outside the state capitol in Lansing today.

Stacy Swimp returned after an eventful Friday there.

Stacy reports:

I was surrounded, at one point, with union terrorists, at every side, as they yelled affectionate comments to me such as:
You are a token!

How much they paying you, Boy!

Martin L. King would spit in your face!

You are a shame to your race!

How does it feel to be rich?!

Keep in mind that these are, if not some of the identical people who have called Tea Party activists racists, they are representing people who do it often.

Black Pastors To Hold Press Conference. Denounce NAACP and Gay Marriage Which They Say “Threatens to Destroy Western Civilization”

Detroit, Michigan– September 19, 2014- A National Coalition of Black Pastors and Christian Leaders has announced that they are holding a special Press Conference in Detroit, Michigan on September 23, 2014.

The Coalition will reveal a national strategy to combat court decisions overturning state laws protecting traditional marriage in partnership with the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The Press Conference shall be held at 10am, in Dearborn Room 1, at the Marriott- Detroit Metro Airport, Romulus, Michigan 48174.

The Council, which has denounced gay marriage as “a threat to end western civilization as we know it,” has also condemned the NAACP as a “morally bankrupt institution” that has “sold Black civil rights for gay rights,” according to its spokesperson, Minister Stacy Swimp

In 2012, the NAACP took an official position to endorse “gay marriage,” by putting out a press release saying “we support marriage equality consistent with equal protection under the law provided under the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution.”

The NAACP has not recanted their position, in spite of the fact the overwhelming majority of Black Americans oppose gay marriage.

How is it that the NAACP concludes that the 14th Amendment, which was created to guarantee the citizenship rights of Black Americans,  is now meant to give license to a behavior which would devastate an already fractured institution in the Black community, which is the family? says Pastor Danny Holliday, Founder and Pastor of Victory Baptist Church in Alton, Illinois.Every God fearing American has a moral obligation to renounce membership to this once proud organization that has clearly lost its moral compass.

The NAACP and other advocates of redefining marriage say that lesbians and homosexuals are “born gay” and should not be discriminated against because of how they were born.

The Coalition of Black Pastors and Christian leaders disagree.

No one is created homosexual and forever condemned to being so. That argument, in defense of gay marriage cannot be substantiated. I am living proof.” says Evangelist Janet Boynes, a former lesbian who is one of the leaders of the Coalition. Therefore, to redefine marriage and, essentially, render the concept of family without true meaning, would be an action against the will of God and the best interest of nation, family, and person who has been deceived into thinking he or she is without hope of walking away from homosexuality.

The Coalition, represented by the Thomas More Law Center, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, has filed several briefs on behalf of the Coalition in the Circuit Court of Appeals and in the US Supreme Court.

“We pray that Federal judges shall uphold the rule of law and dismiss the wrongful assertion which says that so called gay marriage has association with the 14th Amendment, which was passed to guarantee the citizenship rights of Black Americans,”  says Pastor Emery Moss, Strictly Biblical, Detroit, Michigan.

“Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution does it indicate that equal justice under the law is related to gay marriage,” says Bishop Samuel Smith, of the Apostolic World Christian Fellowship. “Marriage, furthermore, was defined by God. Not by government. Government has no right to redefine marriage and destroy the meaning of family.”

Bishop Smith concludes, “The Constitution provides us our civil, political, and religious freedom, in accordance with our God given rights. The courts of the United States have a duty to the American people to uphold these God given rights and the Constitution.”

Please Pray for Israel and Dont Let Anti Semetic American Mass Media Mislead you!

I have noticed that Pro Palestinian, American mass media have been spreading false propaganda about Israel and that nature of the conflict that Israel is in.

I have also noticed how many Americans have been easily miseducated in an attitude of animosity and distrust towards Israel.

Recently, NBA Player, Dwight Howard, tweeted Free Palestine He clearly has a right to freedom of expression, but he is also clearly lacking knowledge.

I have, furthermore, been verbally attacked by some so called Christians for my stance in support of Israel.

We must not allow our friends in Israel to fall or to be falsely maligned. I will not be swayed against Israel by any power on this earth.

In any event, American media also says that the Hamas are the real threat to Israel. I believe that is a false distraction manufactured by the Obama Administration.

The TRUTH is that the Hamas is NOT the greatest threat to Israel. The greatest threat to Israel is Iran.

The Hamas are mere pawns.

The truth is that the mullahs of Tehran provide the weapons, equipment, training, and funding for the Hamas to attack Israel.

Iran has provided thousands upon thousands of rockets and missiles to the enemies of Israel.

It is also worthy of noting that both Al Qaeda and ISIS, an al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria are also engaged in the fight against Israel.

What we are witnessing is Islamic caliphate. Muslims are uniting to try to destroy Israel and make Israel a Muslim State- in their pursuit of world domination.

THAT is the bigger picture that mass media here in the United States appears to avoid being completely honest about, particularly with the Obama Administration clearly empathetic with Syria, Iran, the Palestinians and the global Islamic agenda.

Genocide Alert: Homosexuality Systematically Killing Black Americans!

MICHIGAN, March 8, 2014- There is a growing trend among homosexual and lesbian advocates of redefining marriage as other than between one man and one woman: They are alleging that marriage redefinition is a civil right and that Americans of the same sex who seek to redefine marriage are suffering comparable persecution as Africans did during the transatlantic slave trade.

Homosexuals and lesbians also say they are suffering the same discrimination as Black Americans during the civil rights era, prior to the passing of the landmark Voting Rights and Civil Rights Bills of 1964 and 1965, respectively.

California Defense Attorney and Advocate of Redefining Marriage, Michael Eisenberg, during a televised debate on the Rick Amato Show, February 27, 2014, stated that he was shocked that I would oppose redefining marriage, since I am a Black American. I have been similarly attacked on other social media venues.

I, on the other hand, am astonished by the notion that anyone would have the audacity to compare the lifestyle  choices of homosexuals and lesbians, which is not immutable, to the plight of being Black in America, which is immutable. More important, it is a lifestyle that is systematically and disproportionately killing Black Americans.

The fact is that the homosexual agenda is one that can rightly be identified as genocidal against Black Americans.

Per the Nov. 2013 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Report: HIV In the United States: At a Glance:

  • Homosexual, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) of all races and ethnicities remain the population most profoundly affected by HIV
  • Although Homosexual MSM represent less than 5 percent of the male population in the U.S., they account for 78 percent of all new HIV infections among males and 63 percent of all new infections overall

This has had an alarming impact on the Black community in particular. The same CDC report identified that:

  • Homosexual, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM),  particularly young Black/African -American MSM, are most seriously affected by HIV
  • The estimated rate of new HIV infections for Black women was 20 times as high as the rate for white women, and almost five times as high as that of Latinas.
  • Almost 85,000 HIV-infected people in the Black community in 2010 were unaware of their HIV status
  • It is estimated that 1 in 16 Black men and 1 in 32 Black women will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime.

The tragic reality is that Black Americans are disproportionately and devastatingly impacted by the homosexual agenda.

“We, over 100 Pastors and Christian leaders from not only Detroit, but across the State of Michigan want to send a message that there are yet still pastors in city and State – in truth, the overwhelming majority of pastors who stand by both our Michigan Constitution and our Judeo Christian values,” said Pastor Lennell Caldwell, First Baptist World Changers. “We believe that marriage between one man and one woman creates the best possible environment for the health and wellness of children.  While we agree that every American has a right to choose to live as he or she wants, no one is entitled to redefine marriage.”
On February 25, 2014, Judge Bernard Friedman of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan will begin to preside over DeBoer vs. Snyder, a lawsuit that will address both the 2004 voter approved amendment to the Michigan Constitution that defines marriage between one man and one woman as well as the state adoption law. News media have indicated the trial is expected to last at least eight days.
“We believe that the family structure is absolutely and eternally connected to human flourishing,” said Apostle Ellis Smith, Jubilee Church, Detroit.Moreover, children do far better when raised by a man and woman who are married, receiving the unconditional love and support of both their mother and father.”
There are several vital points the pastors wish to highlight about God and marriage between one man and one woman:
·         God created marriage as a covenant between one man and one woman
·         God created marriage between one man and one woman to be the foundation for building a family
·         God created sexuality as an expression of unity between a man and a woman in the marriage covenant
·         God created the covenant of marriage between one man and one woman as a replication of the covenant between God and man.
“The issue of marriage protection is not a matter of conservatism, liberalism, libertarianism, Democrat or Republican platforms, but is a matter of righteousness. It is a matter of Biblical principles,” concluded Rev. Dr. Roland A. Caldwell, Pastor of Burnette Inspirational Ministry.
The Detroit Pastors in support of this message are from The Baptist Pastors Fellowship, Westside Ministers Alliance, Concerned  Pastors Fellowship Minister Alliance and others who are coming forward in support of support of Michigans Marriage Protection Amendment
