AME church rips vote on Eric Holder
Politico ^ | July 4, 2012 | MJ Lee

Posted on 07/04/2012 3:35:47 PM PDT by upchuck

The African Methodist Episcopal Church, one of the most prominent black denominations in the country, is blasting the House vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress last week, comparing the move to the “evil strategies employed following the Reconstruction era.”

...

“Those who have held Attorney General Holder, America’s first African-American attorney general, in contempt have been consistently and systematically disrespectful of the attorney general and of President Barack Obama,” the resolution read. “The attack against Attorney General Holder comes after his stated intent to determine whether recent laws passed to combat non-existent voter fraud are actually efforts at voter suppression that violate the Voting Rights Act.”


TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS:
"AME church rips vote on Eric Holder" Of course they did.

And, IIRC, the contempt vote had absolutely nothing to do with voter rights.

The African Methodist Episcopal Church is obviously racsist.

Doesn't matter if you're a bigot.

Let’s see now, what’s that about non-political involvement and tax exemptions?

We respect their president and attorney general as much as they respected ours.

Obviously thy fail to recognize that respect is earned and aiding and abetting murdering thieving drug dealers is not the ideal way to earn it. No wonder the black community is in such turmoil.

No surprise that the HEIRARCHY of the AME Church did this. But I’d love to know what percentage of the folks in the pews agree with it.....albeit, if the “folks” only get their news from the mainslimes, they know little or nothing about Holder, et al. Anyone who only watches the mainslime channels is unknowingly getting “The Mushroom Treatment”.....which for you folks in Rio Linda means they are “being fed hor$e$h!t and KEPT IN THE DARK!

So when is the IRS going to yank the AME non-taxable status for being so blatantly political from the pulpit?

No one is surprised about this. I knew when Obama was elected that this crap would come along eventually/

Anyone familiar with Washington DC an Marion Barry could have predicted this.

It’s from the same playbook. The same page.

Cover for the black dude no matter what he does.
Racists accusing others of racism

Facts do not mean a thing, the Honkies is picking on the black man. Taught to their progeny from the moment they are born.

Good evening. I hope you are doing well.

With this "pronouncement," the AME is stating that they don't care about the rule of law, or they themselves are racists.

What they seem to be saying is that black people are inferior and should not be held to the same standards that anyone else would be held to.

The contempt vote was for Holder refusing to release evidence about his shipping hundreds of guns to Mexican drug gangs.

Sounds like the AME Church supports murder as long as it is of another race.

Actually, that is Bajan-American, and his father came here of his own volition.

If I were a black American descended from slaves, I'd be pretty pissed Johnny-come-latelys like Holder and Obama exploit the legitimate historical grievance of slavery/segregation for their own personal benefit and have pretty much guaranteed that racial comity will never be achieved.

This AME shit is the tip of the iceberg...

If you aren't loading up with protection (arms & ammo) and whatever rations you'll need for an extended 'standoff', then you're not getting the message that OBozo and his like are steadily stiring up.

This shows a lot about this particular church, the congregation and the pastors/bishops or whatever. You know this church believe in same sex marriage, abortion and any other belief which comes against the bible including murder of innocent government agents who are protecting their black butts.

Obviously, the leadership of the AME Church considers 200+ dead Mexican citizens at the hands of Eric Holder to be no big deal.

Time to revoke their tax exempt status. They are obviously a political not religious entity.

Forces churches to pay taxes may be in the healthcare bill already since nobody’s read it. But, if it is, you can bet this church has a waiver.

This is nothing but Black Ku Klux Klan Racism...

Holder and Obama are actively helping the Mexican Drug Cartels....there is no other reason they would refuse to release the info requested by Congress

As for AME KKK Church...maybe if they started adressing the real issues in the black community: Black violence, out of wedlock births, lack of education, gang violence....

So tired of Blacks using “Racism” on every damn thing...it is nothing more than Black Ku Klux Klan Racist nonsense

The AME church cares not at all about murdered Mexican citizens. The AME church cares only about themselves and their overdrawn race card.
