Black Pastors Silent as Farrakhan Attacks Christianity
The Christian Diarist ^ | April 14, 2012 | JP

Not a word from Jesse Jackson. Not a peep from Al Sharpton. Not one black pastor stepped up this week to respond to the attack upon the Christian faith by Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam.

In separate appearances at predominantly black Alabama A&M University in Normal, Ala. and Miss ionary Baptist Church in Nashville, Tenn., Farrakhan declared that black Christians are self-hating; that they are following the white man’s religion.

“See,” said Farrakhan, “you’ve got a song you sing in the church, ‘Ride on Kind Jesus.’” What it really means, he told his black audience, is “Ride on King White Folk.”

“You may not think you’re saying that,” Farrakhan admonished, “but your actions prove that you worship white people and hate yourself at the same time.”

Then the black Muslim firebrand dropped another incendiary bomb on his audience. The Christian church, he claimed, has conspired to hide the fact that Jesus Christ was a black man.

“Even Billy Graham said it years ago,” Farrakhan told his audience. “So why,” he asked, did the Christian church “make Him white when you knew he was black?”

I wish that the nation’s black clergy had responded to Farrakhan’s attack upon their Christian faith.

I wish that just one black pastor had pointed out that Billy Graham actually said, “Jesus was not a white man; He was not a black man. He came from that part of the world that touches Africa and Asia andEurope.”

I wish Rev. Sharpton had said that black Christians are not worshiping white people, as Farrakhan, the racial demagogue, asserted, but are worshiping the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

I wish that Rev. Jackson had said that black Christians do not hate themselves, as the black Muslim leader accused, but are practicing the brotherly – colorblind – love their Lord and Saviour commanded.

Edmund Burke famously declared, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

Black pastors had an opportunity this week to publicly condemn the evil, divisive remarks of Louis Farrakhan. But they did nothing. They said nothing.

Black pastors had a lot to say about Trayvon Martin case. Nothing to say about Farrakhan's attack on Christian faith. Selective outrage.

Incredible that these anti-semitic black Nazis are sidemen to Obama, that he meets with them, breaks bread with them, but that is the kind of POTUS we have. Don’t be surprised in the least if this POS gets reelected we have a rehash of Edict 44/91.

Not a word from Jesse Jackson. Not a peep from Al Sharpton.

Oh, that's because they're not black pastors...but rather they are self-serving, race-baiting, whorin'-dog RATs.

Prediction: Jackson, Sharpton and the rest of the black race-baiters will convert to Muslimism. Within five years.

You heard it here first!

Some black pastors are Christians. But not all of them are Christians.

KIND Jesus? The song I know is titled, “Ride On, KING Jesus.” A whole lot of difference, there!

Sharpton and Jackson are hardly real Christians. They just use the name as a front for gathering money and power.

Their Jesus is not the biblical one.

You forgot David Manning.

He’s not afraid to tell it like it is.

I’m surprised Farrakhan and his thugs haven’t moved on him.

Does Farrakhan know that the Arabs who invented Islam were the first foreign slavers of the African black? Or that into the modern era there were still Arabs who owned black slaves?

With all the people on our side sitting this one out or just not voting top-line, he will be re-elected, and we’ll have 4yrs of absolute hell and destruction, from which this once-prosperous and proud Republic will NEVER RECOVER. And they think they’re “punishing the GOPers”. They’re actually helping 0bummer&Co to KILL AMERICA.

Jesus was white? Not likely, but I’ve never heard anyone who calls him/herself a christian refer to Christ’s race/skin color. Jesus was black? Not likely as he descended from the line of King David.

Look, Louie, Jesus was darker than me and lighter than you, and...uh, wait a second. Is Farrakhan black? I’ve seen white people with darker tans than his pigmentation. Heck, I had an Italian friend with darker pigmentation that Louie. You don’t suppose that Louie is...Nah...

Barak Obama’s ancestors were slave traders.

So, why do they continually lambast whitey about slavery but not him?

Why is Farrakhan speaking at a Baptist church in the first place?

Jesus was Jewish according to His mother’s blood. A black man carried His cross.

Farrakhan also claimed Jesus was a Black Muslim. I guess he doesn’t realize Islam wasn’t created until after 600AD.

Jesse’s and Al’s support for homosexuality should go over real well with the Mohammedan crowd.

Are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton black pastors— or ravening wolves dressed in sheeps’ clothing seeking whoever they can devour. Are they the trusted slave of the Democratic Party plantation doin the massas work keepin the others in line?

I don’t keep up with black pastors, or white pastors, for that matter, but if we are talking the Rev. Wright kind of black pastors, what else could we expect. Liberation theology isn’t Christianity. It is made to fool Christians who don’t know any better into thinking Marx was the second coming. Farrakhan is merely voicing the leftist take on social justice, using Christianity as the enemy, no different than most leftist do, and agitating blacks. Social justice and liberation theology, not to mention Islam, are all about creating militant radicals, and Christian pastors everywhere turn their heads. They want to be friends.
