Churches hold 'Hoodie Sunday'
GOP USA ^ | 7/15/2013 | Orlando Sentinal Staff

Posted on 07/16/2013 3:34:28 PM PDT by IbJensen

"I am hurt. I am sad. I am shocked, but I shouldn't be," preached the Rev. Valarie Houston of Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church in Sanford's historic Goldsboro area.

Several times during her impassioned Sunday-morning sermon about George Zimmerman's acquittal, Houston's words brought church members to their feet.

"We are African-Americans. We are people. We are allowed to go the store and buy Arizona Ice Tea and a package of Skittles and go home," she said, recalling Trayvon Martin's trip to a convenience store that ended in his death.

"Now is the time to lift our national policy from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of human dignity," Houston said.

Those issues of inequity and injustice were echoed in churches across the region, from their pulpits and pews to their parking lots.

Although the Rev. Lowman Oliver of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church in Sanford chose to continue with a previously scheduled youth-day service, he briefly expressed his frustration with the not-guilty verdict.

"This is not taking us forward but moving us backward," Oliver said. "I am angry, but I dare not sin. That anger is driving me to do what I can to ensure every mother, brother, sister will not tolerate stalking.

"On the positive side," Oliver said, "the case has brought to everyone's attention racial issues and disparities in our penal system, and has become a catalyst for change."

Crystal Haynes, the 31-year-old youth coordinator at St. Paul Missionary Baptist, expressed her views through her sweat shirt -- a gray hoodie featuring Trayvon's image on its front along with the words "Hoodie does not mean I'm a criminal."

Trayvon was wearing a hoodie the night he died. Some believe the garment raised Zimmerman's suspicions.

"I'm heartbroken, honestly," said Haynes, whose son is 4. "A lot say this is not a black-or-white issue, but a wrong-or-right issue. I disagree. He [Zimmerman] didn't get anything. That shows no respect for the deceased."

The Rev. Errol Thompson also wore a hoodie Sunday when he delivered his sermon to more than 100 churchgoers at New Life Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Orlando. "I wore it to honor the fallen young man and his family," he said.

At First Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Sanford, the Rev. Harry D. Rucker was late for his 11 a.m. sermon. He had spent a late night at the Seminole County Sheriff's Office discussing the verdict in the Zimmerman trial with other members of Sanford Pastors Connecting, a nondenominational coalition of black and white religious leaders that formed as a result of the Trayvon incident.

Once he arrived at First Shiloh, Rucker began by asking the congregation to keep both the Martin and Zimmerman families in their prayers. Although he believed in the American justice system, he disagreed with the jury's verdict, he said.

"I was trying to eat when they read the verdict and I dropped my fork," Rucker preached. "For the first time in my life I was speechless."

However, the Rev. Harlan Walker of Word of Faith Ministries in Sanford wasn't so surprised.

"I don't believe that any of those who followed the case and listened to the evidence will be surprised it turned out the way it did," said Walker, adding, "I don't expect any dissension, maybe a flare-up here or there."

Regardless, said First Shiloh churchgoer Alpha Henderson, 59, "Even if the verdict came back guilty, it still wouldn't bring Trayvon Martin back."

Henderson, a father of six from Orlando, said he believed the city of Sanford is healing and credited his pastor with getting the town back on track.

Rucker said changes regarding race relations will come to Sanford.

"We cannot allow it to stay as we were before," said Rucker, who has been First Shiloh's pastor for 30 years. "We were existing in a separatist kind of way."

The Rev. John Murphy, part of Sanford's coalition of black and white pastors, dedicated much of his Sunday sermon at True Church, a nondenominational church in Winter Garden, to discussing the lessons of the shooting and trial.

"As pastors, we hated the fact that this incident happened. You never want to see a young man lose his life," said Murphy, a pastor for Harvest Time International, a global mission center.

"We've come together as pastors and government and community leaders as never before," he said. "We have met together and experienced the grief of Trayvon being killed, and the discrimination coming alive, and used that as a platform for more civil rights and more nondiscrimination.

"We have felt a whole new realm of purpose and direction," Murphy said. "This has given us an opportunity to get more involved in our communities, to know people and have a protest and have a grieving so we can talk and learn where the problems are."

For Allen Chapel member Tray Williams, 27, the verdict in the Zimmerman trial was a reflection of Florida's history.

"Florida is more than Disney World," said Williams of Sanford. "It's still the South."

The Rev. Jeff Krall of Family Worship Center in Sanford saw the trial in Biblical terms -- as an example of mankind's imperfections.

"We live in an imperfect world, with imperfect people, working within imperfect systems," said Krall, a member of Sanford Pastors Connecting.

"We need to rely on a perfect God," Krall said, "who can give us His grace to act in a perfect way during difficult and perplexing times."

Tell your congregations to not wear hoodies in sub-tropical Florida at night or in the daytime. If you feel you must then move up North where they'll keep you warm. Also, don't slink around gated communities like you're casing the place and stop acting like you're looking for a fight or an argument. This is Florida where many are licensed to carry firearms.

Rev. Valarie should in addition to a “Hoodie Sunday” have her congregation wear baggy pants with their asses hanging out, and wear over sized baseball hats sideways, and perhaps they can all employ gang-land finger symbol language to express their prayers.

Keep harping on this issue until you're blue in the face with the understanding that relations between the African race and the others represented in this melting pot are going to get even worse. That mystery guy in the White Hut has done a great job of uniting Americans of various races. This is what he and his handlers meant by 'hope and change'.

Or how about seminars on how the black community can evade all dem white homo rapists preying on black boys. Maybe “Jaentel” could be the instructor.

I realize that the “journolist” gets to filter his quotes and choose his facts. But among all of the clergy quoted, was not one of them concerned about a generation of kids getting sucked into thug culture? Families that do not know God? Kids who are lost and have no compass?

Let’s have pants on the ground Sunday.

No, there is no discussion of the gang culture, apparently that is a taboo subject. Of course we know it is racist for whites to bring up the gang culture. .But apparently blacks can’t mention it either. I guess they want to be liberal and non-judgemental about the youth gangs.

The inconvenient truth is that Trayvon was a gang banger in training. This was a very bad case for liberals and race baiters to use to lecture us about profiling and racism and all that.

Indeed. What you are not allowed to do by law is attack a man and try to beat him to death because you think you are a thug lifer. And if you do that and the man you attack is armed you may well end up dead..

I want to say that I BOUGHT A NAVY BLUE HOODIE IN HONOR OF ZIMMERMAN!

Actually, I bought it to wear out in my garden when it gets cooler. However, it was all this hoodie hoopla that made me think that would be a good, cheapish, warmish, sweaterish kind of thing to wear when I have to do a bit of work in the garden.

I've never had a hoodie and this one has a zipper in front so it's easy on and off. It's actually a good brand of hoodie. (I sleep in a fairly cold room at night and this morning, I put on my hoodie until the house warmed a bit.)

HAVE YOU GOT A HOODIE? Do you have a hoodie story?

That’s right; these “churches” haven’t expressed a Christian thought since inception. Their silliness was exposed when two “ministers” (JAckson & Sharpton) ran for president and the “separation of church & state” never reared its head. They are simply paid off to lead their tribe into oblivion, and they are happy to oblige.

Embrace your inner “gansta”. Wear a hoodie. Smoke dope. Get wasted on “drank”. Steal women’s jewelry. Get kicked out of school. Trespass. Look into the windows of houses you don’t own. Post pictures of guns, your gold “grills”, and you smoking dope on the internet. Flip people off. Physically attack those that volunteer to help others in your community. Die an early death or go to prison (but please, please make sure to make a donation first...Daddy needs a new Caddy!). Do it for Trayvon!!!

I’m sick and tired of the hyphenated phony Americans. We call brown or tan people ‘black’ and call negroes ‘African-Americans.

The rest of us aren’t Jewish-Americans, or Italian-Americans, etc. We’re supposed to be Americans, but we’re not and we’ll never be; especially with a moronic communist muslim in the White Hut.

If they want to be hyphenated, then refer to them as Africans or African-Africans!

I have an entire litany of terms to apply to this jackass in the White Hut.

Jesse Jackson has for sure, because I used to hear his sermons decades ago when in Skokie,IL., when he preached the Gospel. He probably never had God’s Spirit in him because of how far into evil he has plunged. Men like obamao’s past ‘minister’ serve the demon yet have so many duped. It is no doubt but a sign that we are at the End Times.

So tell me something? Is the inflaming of passions over this Not Guilty verdict a good religious purpose?
There was an occasion when I challenged my pastor over a statement he had made from the pulpit which struck me as astonishingly self-righteous. He jokingly replied, “That’s scriptural” - and quoted Luke 18:11
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

I took it that my pastor had heard in his own voice what I had heard in it . . .

Or, as they are wont to be, ganging up and torturing young couples then raping the girl while her fiancé is forced to watch, then brutally killing them both.

This has happened recently and more than once.

Whatever gains they’ve made in the past is being rapidly wiped out by the performance of this mystery man in the White Hut and by the actions of the thugs who wear their pants down past their asses and their hats on sideways or backwards.

Best be polite and careful and not draw too much attention to yourselves as the next few years are going to be precarious.

These people want to relive their heyday of the 60s when racial discrimination was at its worst. What’s wrong with these people? Is this what happens when blacks have power in the USA now, they turn on white people with everything they have. Revenge seems a huge priority for them.

1. When was the last time you bought Skittles ??? as an adult I dont buy them

2. nobody stopped Trayvon Martin from “goi9ng home” ifd he wanted to. he didnt want to. he wanted to punch a stranger who didnt do anythiong to him in the face and beat him up.

3. TM was “allowed to go home” why didnt he do just that ???

4. you are not allowed to punch and beat someone else...

5. was TM a member of your church ??? I doubt he ever darkened the door of any church
