Posted by a friend and I'm sharing with you anonymously with the mod's blessing due to my connection with the church and it will be obvious where the photo would have come from.
This morning at the Calvary Revival Church in Norfolk, Virginia, the church was a "Hoodie Service" in honor of Trayvon Martin.
Of course, lip service was given to 'prayer and healing' but the presumption made by the pastor and parroted by the congregation was it was a 'hate crime' by the racist Zimmerman. There was no condemnation for those calling for vigilante justice. There was no calls for patience in the system. Instead, the service was playing that Martin was an innocent victim of a racist attack.
This is actually a pretty diverse church both in race and political belief. The narrative seems to be sown in most people's minds at this point.
Obama been laudin' that martial law! Obama! Mmmm mmmm mmm!
Show the crisis! Make the crisis! Fan the crisis!
Show that you want to take advantage of the crisis.
Show your hoodies!
Bye, bye America. The blacks have full power as us evil white biggots are put in our proper place. Never minds the facts.
If you white and black kid wants you wallet, hand it over without incident or you will railroaded in the press as a racist.....If you or white and black kid wants to kick your ass, you better let him without retaliation or you will railroaded in the press as a racist........if a black kid wants to put a cap in yo ass, you better let him or you will railroaded in the press as a racist........if a black kid wants to rape your wife and daughter, you better let him or Eric Holder and Barack Obama will make sure you pay the price.
Call me a racisit, I don’t give a crap! I’m done with this stupid country and its stupid minorities and stupid guilty white majority. This is the day I officially have given up hope will can rebound. We are done. This nation was once worth loving and dying for. I still love the America of old, but those days are gone forever.
Why would they support a THUG/HOOD that goes around attacking people?
And according to the latest annual report on murder by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, most inter-racial murders involve black assailants and white victims, with blacks murdering whites at 18 times the rate that whites murder blacks
We’re living in a scifi film.
We conservatives have much to learn in touching peoples needs and emotions; a vital part of communicating.
All they need to do now is light the cross on fire, and the picture is complete.
The only difference between this and KKK is that this is in broad daylight, promoted by people who are supposed to be societal leaders.
Be fun to see how many whites are in that church in 2 months.
They are a swarmin' and a swoonin' right there among those who can't miss. And I won't miss them either (when they are gone, pun intended).
That is an excellent point.
It was certainly a factor vis-a-vis the New Left and the hippies.
I can see 'em now..

you know a lot of churches no longer worship God or Jesus Christ, don’t you?
“We conservatives have much to learn in touching peoples needs and emotions...”
We are always trying to reach their minds. But of course you are right, most people aren’t deep thinkers and don’t pay a lot of attention to politics. (Of course a lot of people are complete idiots, but never mind that for now.)
Sloganeering, etc. are important. People deride the “sound byte” but the fact is that’s about all the info people are willing to pay attention to, or retain.
Look at ads for products, does the laundry detergent ad go on and on about how it works and why it’s a good bargain? No - it just says “Gets your clothes clean” and that’s enough.
Funny, I don’t see anything in that Wiki article about crime and hoodies.
Why do I want to break out in a chorus of “Red Solo Cup”?
See posts 5 and 6.
It is not about hoodies so much as it is about dispelling the false notion perpetrated by liberals and race baiters that there is some sort of equivalency in interracial crime rates.Whites are overwhelmingly more likely to be victims of black aggressors than vice versa. Yet there are no marches or media driven services for such victims.
Looks like something that could have come from “The People’s Church”, all that’s missing is the Kool-Aid.
You can’t lose what you never had to begin with. See post #17.
The pastor there is Courtney McBath, right? I’m in Virginia, and the services there were aired on TV around the state (at night in syndication). My husband and I used to watch sometimes; we liked him, and his messages were often very good. Then in 2008, he started talking about how he was voting for Obama, and we never watched again.
I’m not familiar with he tune.
What’s in the red solo cup?
We all be hoodie now.
In da HOOD!
That is him and your assessment is precisely what I’ve seen as well. Take for example this past week’s message.
He has been putting politics in everything. He compares the supporters of ‘the current administration’ to Daniel and compares Daniel’s persecution to people opposing the current administration. He even goes so far, and frankly crosses the line when he says “we can thrive in this current administration because like the kings of Daniels day, the king will just turn certain matters over to us and kill anyone who messes with his man!.”
Yes, you read that right, the source is linked. He used to be a pastor along the lines of Jakes and Dollar, but as you can tell by that, he is politically manipulative.
“”The Hoodie” as a symbol is sheer leftist brilliance.”
I agree. Look for the hoodie to become a centerpiece of Obama’s campaign for re-election. Now he can dress all his followers the same, and create intimidating crowds. On his way toward creating his own cult. Jim Jones was an amateur by comparison.
Lord have mercy, I’m sorry I ever listened to a word he had to say. What a disgrace.
Agreed. Attempting long rational argument is not sufficient. Creativity is needed.
The impulse behind all this activity is energizing the base with the resulting reelection of "The Divine One." It has been predicted that since the left cannot run on the record of "The Divine One" they will attack conservatives as evil, hateful, homophobes, misogynists and racists. If riots occur so much the better for the left.
