Trayvon Martin killing boosts Easter voter-registration drive
Orlando Sentinel ^ | 4/7/12 | Jeff Kunerth

On Palm Sunday, LaVon Bracy stood before the congregation of New Covenant Baptist Church in Orlando and announced plans to participate in an effort by 50,000 black congregations nationwide to register 1 million voters on Easter Sunday.

"All I'm asking for is any person willing to find one person to register to vote," said LaVon, wife of Pastor Randolph Bracy Jr. "We are trying to register as many people as possible. I expect great success next Sunday."

The mass voter-registration drive — calculated to take advantage of Easter's larger-than-normal Sunday attendance — is spearheaded by the Rev. Jamal Bryant, a Baltimore preacher. Bryant estimates there are as many as 5 million unregistered voters in the pews of America's black churches.

And while they’re at it, register a few dead people too.

I implore the Black community to vote for the Country, not hyper-partisanship. We are one Country.

The word is despicable. And stupid - voting for those who champion the slaughter of their unborn and the butcher of their young men (ages 14-25).

You mean people have to register before they can vote?

No better way to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ than to devote the Easter church service to politics.

And they’re all called Trayvon Martin.

That sword can cut both ways. Imagine traditionally conservative evangelical, Baptist, Missouri synod, RC, Eastern rite, etc. churches doing this across the nation.

They should “use” all the aborted dead kids to get people to vote Dem, too.

[wait...they already do that...never mind]

These clowns don’t need to register for the Dems. The Dems already registered them without their knowing.

It’s time to split this country as we cannot co-exist with these brain-dead libtards.

so... politics in church...

wasn’t there recently a set of churches being threatened by 0failure and crew for daring to speak of political subjects in their churches?

i’m sure we’ll see 0failure send holder to clamp down on his people and their tax free status as political churches... right?

as a side note... i say those on the right should do the same. 2 million +

I call it Michael Jackson syndrome. Michael could have thrown his kid from the balcony and “they” would still love him.

They would get their tax exempt status revoked if they tried it but Black churches will get away with it.

Nothing to worry about really. They will vote 99.9% for Il Douche anyway, as they always have and always will. I don't want to hear another liberal talk about how we should all just be colorblind. That's for whites, and whites alone, a tool made just for (against) us. Every other race votes at least partly, if not wholly, on basis of race.

On that note, it's interesting that only white areas, white countries, are required to have "diversity" as a government policy.

Some very bright FR poster put this up in another thread:

There is a case here in SoCal about a 19 year old who was shot and killed by police after someone called the cops saying he had been robbed at gunpoint(turns out the gunpoint part was not true) the suspect was running from the police and he was shot. Now you would think that Jackson and Sharpton would be here yelling their crazy little hearts out, but not a peep from them..you would think they would be here, but then it hit me, California isn’t a swing state, Florida is, that is why the left is making such a big deal out of this particular case, because they need to win Florida badly, whatever they can do to disrupt elections and cause a race riot they think will work in their favor

And they had to go back almost a month to drag out this trumped-up case,
Meanwhile, the many many black on white crimes continue apace.

“You mean people have to register before they can vote?”

Only if you’re not voting for a democrat.

Unless they actually pay them or give away booze or cigarettes... or hold a free BBQ after the vote... these people my register but they will not get out of bed early enough to vote on election day. The problem is... racist dims will probably do all three things and more.

JESUS knows... HE will not be pleased... and that is something that is far more dangerous than the evil in this word... eternal damnation with no hope.

This is more evidence that the NBC lies trace back to Obama.
