During the recent presidential primaries and this period leading to the national election, there have been a plethora of black politicians, talk radio hosts and pundits who have espoused the view of our race as not a monolithic one, but the amalgamation of many religious and social mores. Yet, when it comes to our voting patterns, it is clearly shown that we are nearly of one accord; which is graphically noted in the polls that indicate over 95 percent support for Barack Obama among the African-American community.
How can this be? How can our leaders not see the Democratic Party's relationship with the black community closely resembles the pimp/whore syndrome? They take our tax dollars, and in return, we get poor schools, spotty health care, neighborhoods in decay, dope and crime-ravaged streets. Or maybe it's the battered woman syndrome?
Many of our voices are speaking out against the genocide in Sudan while not speaking out about the 16 million abortions since 1973 carried out in our community; yet our voices are silent when we hear our tax dollars are sent to Planned Parenthood to murder our babies, God's precious children.
Abortion plus the homosexual lifestyle are not a government-driven plan, but instead a self-inflicted wound that is destroying the family lifestyle. The wages of sin is death and we as a community are experiencing it now.
God loves the sinner but hates the sin. It is now time for black ministers to step up to the plate and take a swing at Satan, batting him out of our churches.
The upcoming election is not about Obama vs. John McCain. This upcoming election is about good overcoming evil and choosing life over death.
I am a registered Independent who has no other God-directed choice but to vote for McCain who promised to nominate conservative justices in order to up the odds of defeating the murderous Roe v. Wade decision.
The old folks used to have a saying, "Don't cut off your nose to spite your face." Black community, I am asking you to pray to God for the knowledge and wisdom in order to cast a vote for Him and His laws. Don't let your blanket dislike of the Republican Party influence your vote. Cast it for the man who more closely backs God's laws.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.
