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

Posted on 04/14/2012 1:48:19 PM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Simon the Cyrenian would have been from the Libyan region. He might have been colored like any Libyan as well.

Jesus, as folks are stating, was a Jew. And would have looked like a Middle Eastern Jew.

Louis Farrakhan Muhammad, Sr. (born Louis Eugene Wolcott; May 11, 1933).

He knows NOTHING of Islam. If he did he wouldn't be saying the things he does. "Jesus" is respected in the Muslim world. There are even stores named after Him--Issa.
It's not an uncommon last name among Arab Christians.

Louis Wolcott is almost 80 years old. He won't last much longer. The poison of his hatred must be eating him up. One could only hope.

Farrakan, Furqan in Arabic, seems to mean criterion. Just googled it.

In Islam, it’s OK to be a ‘top’, but unless the ‘bottom’ is pre-adult or a slave (or an animal), the ‘bottom’ risks a death penalty. Like the Nazis, butch gay is OK but fem gay merits death.

I don't think so either. In Saudi Arabia, there were "mutawahs." Some young, sour Saudis were purported to go around with small sticks and beat on people who weren't obeying the rules, but I never saw them. I think they were an urban legend. I think the Iranians call their holy men imams.

I watched and listen to an hour-long special on Farrakhan once, a long time ago. It was interesting. He is a concert violinist, very smart but so FULL of anger and hatred.
He played Felix Mendelssohn's FAMOUS violin concerto JUST to prove that he didn't hate Jews.
However, Farrakhan didn't do his homework about Mendelssohn. Mendelssohn was born to Jewish parents but was brought up WITHOUT any religion. As an adult he was baptized as Lutheran. Germany didn't become a country until 1871 so he wasn't a German as there was no Germany but he was German-speaking. "Jew" isn't a race or culture, necessarily, so Mendelssohn isn't necessarily a Jew. Doesn't matter to me, but Farrakhan was/is so caught up with hating Jews, would-be Jews, ancestors of Jews, that he can't see straight.

Farrakhan held his choler for a while but all through the hour I could see it start to emerge. By the end of the program he was his usual angry self, SO caustic, full of malice. It was like watching a human Satan, spewing venom. Ugly.

Calypso Louie has been peddling this nonsense for years. Jesus may not have been lily white, as depicted in most art from the Early Middle ages through the Renaissance, but he was certainly not black.

Jesus wasn't born in sub-Saharan Africa, or even Egypt. He looked like what natives of the area now known as Israel would have looked like 2000 years ago. He'd have looked much like any man who is now considered a 'Palestinian'.

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

Black ministers have stood by while their liberal friends have attacked chr*stianity, the bible, and common decency for fifty years. The Klan didn't consider them chr*stians, and obviously they don't really consider themselves chr*tians either. Like the Klan, their race is their religion.

I no longer believe most Blacks are chr*stian at all, or that their "churches" are churches. They do not consider white or non-Black chr*stians to be their brethren; the only brethren they recognize is fellow Blacks.

We'd actually all be better off if Blacks stopped claiming to be chr*stian and just left. They obviously have no interest in any political alliance with other chr*stians on moral or social issues. The only issues that exist for them are racial ones. They're a lost cause. They have joined the side of evil.

Most American Blacks would be more honest if they joined NOI which, ironically, is no more moslem than "Black liberation theology" is chr*stian. For example, the NOI rejects the objective G-d Who exists outside oneself as a white invention; for them the "real 'gxd'" is "within." Also the "resurrection of the dead" in their creed refers to resurrection of the "mind." They're basically eighteenth century European rationalists hypocritically running around claiming to hate the people from whom they have taken all their leftist ideas.

PS: Although Farrakhan pays lip service to opposing abortion and homosexuality he obviously doesn't mean a word of it. He explicitly endorses "the Black Left" in all his political screeds.

This is a historical tragedy. A people so wronged in the past has become a people who deserve punishment from Heaven. And the "moslems" and "chr*stians" among them are actually neither; they are merely self-worshipers running from an inferiority complex who can see nothing but the color of their own skins.

I am not a chr*stian myself, but it seems to be chr*stians would be happy to be rid of them. They are co-religionists in name only and enemies in fact. And I am most sorry that this is so.

Burke obviously never met either Sharpton nor Jackson, and his definition of "good men" would certainly NOT include them.

This proves what we all know is true...Jackson, Sharpton, et al, are NOT Christians first and foremost. I dare say that if Islam was the standard religion of America, they would be Muslims. It is all a cover for their true reason for existence - power and money, money and power. God WILL judge them, of that I know.

Because, if it weren't for whites buying those slaves, there wouldn't have been a market.

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.”

Exactly -- Jesus was brown :-P

But more to the point, in black societies He is depicted as black, in Nordic as a blonde blue-eyed man, in the ancient Church of the East in Mongolia etc. as a man with Oriental features. He was every man so all of these depictions are valid

” A black man carried His cross.” — Simon the Cyrene was from Cyrene, modern day Libya. This was a Greek city and had a large Jewish population. Most likely also a large Berber population and possibly also Italic and Punic. Maybe at a shot Ethiopian. But no sub-saharan African.

Race comes before everything in politics. Jackson and Sharpton are race hustlers who exploit racial situations for profit and publicity.They couldn’t care less about values or racial harmony.

I couldn't agree more! Normal people are distressed whenever innocent people suffer. These guys rub their hands together with glee that they have another "cause" with which to blame the white man and stir up strife as well as keep their names in the news. A true man of God seeks to bring peace, forgiveness and reconciliation. Further proof that neither of these men really ARE men of God. Their god is themselves. They are so far removed from what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. tried to do that they have no business whatsoever invoking his name. If he was still around, he would condemn them along with Farrakhan.

Yeah, it is, though few admit it. One of the ‘markets’ is, or was up until very recently, those peaceloving Tauregs that just declared independence in northern Mali...but that is relatively minor. As most other things evil, Islam is up to its neck in it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_modern_Africa
Chad
IRIN (Integrated Regional Information Networks) of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reports children being sold to Arab herdsmen in Chad. As part of a new identity imposed on them the herdsmen “...change their name, forbid them to speak in their native dialect, ban them from conversing with people from their own ethnic group and make them adopt Islam as their religion.”[23]

Mali
The Malian government denies that slavery exists, but some say slavery still continues as a reflection of the poverty in Mali.[24]

Mauritania
A system exists now by which Arab Muslims — the bidanes—own black slaves, the haratines.
...
In Mauritania, despite slave ownership having been banned by law in 1981, hereditary slavery continues.[30] Moreover, according to Amnesty International:
“Not only has the government denied the existence of slavery and failed to respond to cases brought to its attention, it has hampered the activities of organisations which are working on the issue, including by refusing to grant them official recognition”.[31]
Imam El Hassan Ould Benyamin of Tayarat in 1997 expressed his views about earlier proclamations ending slavery in his country as follows:
“[it] is contrary to the teachings of the fundamental text of Islamic law, the Quran ... [and] amounts to the expropriation from Muslims of their goods; goods that were acquired legally. The state, if it is Islamic, does not have the right to seize my house, my wife or my slave.”[32]

Sudan
Main article: Slavery in Sudan
Sudan has seen a resurgence of slavery since 1983, associated with the Second Sudanese Civil War.[33]
In the Sudan, Christian and animist captives in the civil war are often enslaved, and female prisoners are often used sexually, with their Muslim captors claiming that Islamic law grants them permission.[34] According to CBS news, slaves have been sold for $50 apiece.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_and_slavery
The Arab slave trade was most active in West Asia, North Africa and East Africa. By the end of the 19th century, such activity had reached a low ebb. In the early 20th century (post World War I) slavery was gradually outlawed and suppressed in Muslim lands, largely due to pressure exerted by Western nations such as Britain and France.[4] However, slavery claiming the sanction of Islam is documented presently in the African republics of Chad, Mauritania, Niger, Mali and Sudan.[12][13][14]

There are many well documented current cases in Saudi & the other Gulf states.

Current status While slavery is illegal in Saudi Arabia despite Shaykh al-Fawzan's fatwa, the proclamation carries weight among many Salafi Muslims. According to reformist jurist and author Khaled Abou El Fadl, it "is particularly disturbing and dangerous because it effectively legitimates the trafficking in and sexual exploitation of so-called domestic workers in the Gulf region and especially Saudi Arabia."[134] Organized criminal gangs smuggle children into Saudi Arabia where they are enslaved, sometimes mutilated, and forced to work as beggars. When caught, the children are deported as illegal aliens.

NOT mentioned are the many cases of (mainly) domestics enslaved by Muslim households, even HERE, in the U.S.; in Britain, and everywhere else that Satan spawn invades.

Somehow, the usual suspects will STILL blame it on Whitey.
