Pastor who prayed at Obama’s inauguration says all white people will go to hell
Washingtonexaminer ^ | October 31, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 10/31/2012 9:49:46 PM PDT by chessplayer

Pastor Joseph Lowery, a civil rights movement hero who delivered the benediction at President Obama’s inauguration, reportedly said that he is shocked that any black Americans would stay home with Obama on the ballot and suggested that all or most white people would go to hell.

The local outlet paraphrases Lowery’s comments. “Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell,” the Monroe County Reporter (Ga.) says in covering a rally in Forsyth, Georgia. “Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back to where he was.”

What a collection of disgusting vulgar losers. Obama — “BullS****er”. Biden — “Whole Load” and “Balls.” Grannies ad “c**k-punch right in his nut sack” and “burn this MF down.” Children — “hate American, blame Mom and Dad” song. Young woman - voting is like first-time sex. Fluke - wants us to pay $3,000/year for her romps. Obama — “gun to a knife fight.” Emmanuel — “dead, dead, dead.” Obama about Romney — murderer, tax cheat. Wiener — pics of his engorged member. Obama — murder born-alive babies.

Why would sane people want to affiliate with this garbage? Why are there no standards among these people?

Now if the Pope said all blacks are going to hell, or Billy Graham said all hispanics are going to hell, the media, Fed and state gov’t would surely see to it there was hell to pay for saying it. And no apology and/or restitution would put the scandal to rest.

It's time we are all able to speak freely, or hold all to the same facist standards.

I’m just amazed at the racial healing that has happened under The One. sarc/ So Lowery believes all the whites who risked their lives to help blacks during the civil rights movement will deservedly go to hell because they are white.

Well, there’s one black “pastor” that knows nothing about the bible, nothing about Christ, nothing about heaven and nothing about hell.

Now he can just go and vote for his blithering black idiot again and suffer the worst defeat in his entire life. I’ll sure be smiling thinking of his misery next Tuesday.

Lowery, a veteran communist sympathizer, went off the tracks years ago. Glad to see that he is back to his old form, finally revealing his true racist nature.

If you study the history of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, of which Lowery was King’s successor, you will see the policy influence of the Communist Party USA throughout it.

Most of SCLC’s top leaders were connected to the CPUSA as sympathizers or outright supporters (W.T. Wyatt; once Ralph D. Abernathy, who changed late in life; convicted incest perp James Bevell and his wife; Dr. King and his top aides, CPUSA official Hunter Pitts O’Dell and CPUSA moneyhandler for KGB cash for the Party, Stanley Levison; etc.

What could have been and should have been the top leading black civil rights organization in America (besides the Urban League of Whitney Young), got corrupted early in its life and never purged the communist influence in it.

A little of this is found in Garrow’s “The FBI and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr”, but Garrow missed the real meanings of some of what he had found. That would have made for a great, great book.

His punishment will be to slide down a 50 ft. razor blade and his white half falls into a vat of alcohol. Other half gets 72 virgins for all the good it will do.

Hell is a city run by Democrats.

I was born and raised in Flint, Michigan. It was a great little town up in until the late sixties after the Federal government passed the forced busing law and when the democrats took over the city government. Every democratic mayor of Flint has been a crook. The first one landed in jail for graft. The most recent democrat put a bunch of his friends on the payroll with do nothing jobs complete with great benefits, essentially sucking the city dry.

The original role of government, as intended by our Founders, was to be of service to the people, not gimme specialists.

I am sure that Obama will apologize for this offensive language. Maybe he might even return to the UN and encourage a world ban on inflammatory anti-religious language. And they call US racists.

“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and everyone that loveth him that begat loveth him that is also begotten of him.” (1 John 5:1)

This verse says that those who are born again will LOVE other saved people (”begotten of [Jesus]”). For someone to say that “no white man is saved” manifests a hateful heart toward [all] white people, including those who are born again. It is prima facie evidence that the speaker is NOT saved.

“I can’t believe this!” said no one.

I'll say it. I've met Joseph Lowery. I'm a white man. I disagree with his politics in the extreme, but when I met him he was extremely gracious, conversant, genteel and dignified. He seemed like a fine man, a respectful old-school Democrat. I have always had the same personal opinion of Andrew Young, whom I've also met.

It sounds like Rev. Lowery might have flipped his lid.

Lo IQ black racism. This idiot thinks his people can run anything? Every US city that blacks drove whites out of is a sinkhole. Detroit, Birmingham, Camden etc etc. They were handed houses, buildings, roads and infrastructure that whites built and they trashed it

Every African nation is a pit. South Africa and Zimbabwe are much worse than they were under white rule

The 91-year-old Lowery worked with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and played a key role in various important moments in the civil rights movement, such as the march from Selma, Ala., to Montgomery, Ala. “Lowery was awarded the Medal of Freedom in 2009 by Obama and was elected earlier this year to lead the state’s delegation to the Democratic national convention,” the Georgia Tipsheet recalled.

Shaking my head.

The article says he promoted tolerance during his speech at Obama's inauguration, but the writer is mistaken.

He said,

"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around -- (laughter) -- when yellow will be mellow -- (laughter) -- when the red man can get ahead, man -- (laughter) -- and when white will embrace what is right."

There's nothing tolerant about saying white people are not embracing what is right or are immoral. I guess that's why we're all headed to hell.

There’s a charter school amendment on Georgia’s ballot. Lowery is spreading lies about it. The comments are interesting. Lots of black parents want charter schools for their children.

What a ridiculous reply.

Today, Joseph Lowery said he was joking when he made those comments. It was a very bad joke, but I believe him. He doesn’t hate white people. Nobody who’s ever spent any time with him thinks he does.

I can’t abide his politics.
