Pastor Who Banned Fried Chicken at Church Gets Major Obamacare Navigator Grant
Breitbart ^ | 10/27/2013 | Breitbart News

Posted on 10/28/2013 10:54:52 AM PDT by Rusty0604

Minor explained how he won a major grant – some $317,742 -- from the federal government, despite the fact that his church is small. “I applied for it.” His church has approximately 100 members. The church kitchen carries a sign reading, “No Fry Zone.” Minor said, “It’s a symbol, especially with people of color. You’ve got to rally around symbols.”

Minor says he has built a network of 75 to 100 navigators and counselors to work the Obamacare system. “We feel like once you get people in churches and families, they will become de facto navigators,” Minor explained.

I thought the term "de facto navigators" is interesting.

I thought the phrase “to work the Obamacare system” was also interesting.

I didn’t catch that. So he worked the Obamacare system for over $300,000 for de facto navigators.

Separation of Church and State maybe?

"I didn’t catch that. So he worked the Obamacare system for over $300,000 for de facto navigators."

Kinda... this was part of their overall plan for redistribution of wealth and signing up additional Democrat voters. To that extent, they are working exactly within the "system" that has been created. Funny, I don't recall hearing about open bids for Navigator contracts in any open media.

"Separation of church and state?"

I'm sorry: the Left only screams about that was George Bush is talking about Faith-based initiatives.

The first thing I would do as dictator is ban government grants to private organizations.

1. How did he learn to apply for Navigator position?

2. To which media/associations/groups was application information given?

3. How will he and his Navigators be monitored, evaluated and disciplined?

4. Am I actually expecting answers to these questions?

He asked for it. And he got it. Being black didn’t have anything to do with it. /S

What? Ban fried chicken from a Baptist pot luck and all you’ve got left are casseroles. There would be riot at my church! You can have my drumstick when you pry it from my cold dead hands.

No wonder he only has 100 members

Banning fried chicken?

No one in the south will tolerate such a heretic

That’s what community organizers and “navigators” do - they work the system to get as much out of it with as little effort as possible.

Indeed some convenience stores actually do a decent job with their fry rack

Chicken...catfish and the ubiquitous potato log

My staple from the quick sack at Ole Miss late 70s

The genesis of Abners fried chicken chain oddly enough

There is no Popeye’s here in Franklin TN

Wifey thinks we should open one

I have no inclination to manage fried food....and smell like it....and a bunch of kids...all day

But I will eat it

The “Midway” in New Caney, Texas also has fried Boudin balls.
About the size of a good lemon and get a paper towel, they’s greasy.

Buck a pop. Mmm hmmmm!

Sad day in America when you can’t cook good food because it might offend people.

I’ll eat the fried chicken! THEY can eat the hog guts.

I used to go to Tent Meetings to get the fried chicken.

Years ago, when I was down South,. I am not a Baptist.

Minor is NOT a Pastor. He is a useless conman sellout who had a price. What about "the separation of church & State" The Demonrats were always harping about.

If they have a problem with fried chicken, get the recipe for El Pollo Loco. That’s my wife’s favorite kind.

It’s a weird thing to ban, unless the whole congregation A) is on Atkins, or B) has been diagnosed with heart trouble. In the latter case, just getting rid of fried chicken won’t help.
