Posted on 09/01/2018 3:45:02 AM PDT by Cecily
A fiery, old-school eulogist at the funeral of Aretha Franklin fell flat for many in the crowd and prompted a social media uproar when he declared "black America has lost its soul," black women are incapable of raising sons alone and the Black Lives Matter movement is unfounded in the face of black-on-black crime.
And that was just 26 minutes into the nearly 50 minutes of words provided by the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. of Salem Baptist Church in Atlanta as Franklin's marathon funeral wound down Friday.
Williams, who also eulogized Franklin's father, minister and civil rights activist C.L. Franklin, 34 years ago, was excoriated on Twitter and elsewhere for misogyny, bigotry and the perpetuation of false science on race. He also blamed integration and the civil rights movement for ripping the heart out of black micro-economies that once relied on black-owned small businesses such as grocery stores, hotels and banks.
As he wended his way through the need for more African Americans to return to church and more men to return to their families, the heat turned up online, with younger people declaring rhetoric such as that of Williams is why they left their churches to begin with.

And none so deaf as those won't hear.
Oh yeah - but preaching racism and bashing Trump was a-ok
This is the truth that I wanted my former church to be open to. I would go havesies with them, but they needed to stop blaming white supremacy for everything.
Which upset the 77% of blacks who don't know who their fathers are.
The truth shall set you free. But, you have to be willing to hear and accept it.
Yeah. A funeral is no place for the truth or to face reality. Were Diamond and Silk invited? Clarence Thomas? -sarc
The left can’t respond with conversation, disagreement, discussion, or debate.
If they disagree with something the response is wrath, outrage, anger, or violence.
I don’t blame the lefty sheep. It’s the elite and media who have convinced the sheep that the right is “literally Hitler and nazis”. I would agree that you should not have a conversation with Hitler about disagreements.
“halvesis” like half
True statements, all. But they give snowflakes butthurt.
When people deliberately ignore evil personal behavior in their leaders, everyone tends to get the idea that it just doesn't matter. "It's all between consenting adults," etc., if you consider 12 adult. Finally, everyone's enraged by those who point out the elephant in the room.
We need more pastors like this to create a conservative fire wall against our pagan pantheist society.
Rev. Jasper Williams Jr -— Amen!
The lefty sheep came to be seen.
They are all to young to claim they were with Martin but can now claim “I was there for Aretha”.
The fire and brimstone was telling to a crowd that worship themselves and the message handed down by the plantation massas.
Truth stings but 38% blacks are listening now and leaving the democrat plantation.
Now how long will it take for the snowflakes to begin mustering their string of floozies to begin making bogus claims of sin. Like with Herman Cain.
I pray for his protection.
Self fulfilling prophecy, making the eulogy spot on.
It appears he disregarded the memo to be completely PC-correct. Refreshing.
*Or rage girl. Or rage hermaphrodite. Or rage fictional gender construct. Rage, rage, rage... it's all the rage and all about the rage.
Christ showed us the “right place & time” is when the sinners are present. He overturned their tables and whipped them that traded in the temple square. We are being shown again how’s it is proper done. Praise the Lord God for giving this world Rev. Williams!
