Skip to comments.An Open Letter to my Black Evangelical Friends
Posted on 11/13/2012 6:05:41 AM PST by ReformationFan
I am not writing this letter to accuse but rather to advance understanding. And even though I am white, I am not writing as an outsider but as a fellow evangelical, part of the same spiritual family. May I pose some candid questions?
Are you guilty, on any level, of blind allegiance to the Democratic party? And, on Election Day, did any of you compromise your convictions out of racial solidarity?
I have been very open in my criticism of white evangelicals, pointing out how we often put our trust in the Republican party and how we look to the latest candidate as some kind of political savior, only to be disappointed time and time again, complaining that the Republicans wanted our votes but did not stand up for our values. We wont get fooled again, we say, only to repeat the same cycle four years later.
On Election Day morning, I posted an article entitled A Warning to Moral Conservatives, raising concerns that if Mitt Romney was elected, we would be making a grave mistake in looking to him to advance our moral and social agenda. I even wrote an article in June entitled Mitt Romney Is Not the Answer, and I often told my evangelical radio listeners that I would not argue with them if they could not vote for Romney because he was a Mormon. So, I do understand black Christian reticence towards Romney (for these reasons, among others).
I simply do not understand how my black evangelical friends who so staunchly oppose same-sex marriage and who stand against abortion could cast their vote for the most radically pro-abortion, pro-gay-activist president in our history.
Was there no moral compromise involved in voting for him? Are there no issues that could disqualify him in your eyes?

I think you know the answer...
Having deeply considered every issue, they then noted that Obama was still black and they were still racist-socialists. This outweighed all other considerations and they gleefully cast their ballots (yes ballots) for him and every other socialist running for office.
It really is that simple.
The stats are in....
....sad but true...
How any Bible-believing Christian can vote for ANY democrat is indefensible.
I pull no punches, they want their freebies and hate Whitey. Except for a very few, they are a lost cause. My heart has hardened in the last four years, especially the last week.
WE HAVE A WINNAH!!!!
Christians need to go a lot further than abortion and same-sex marriage. The Obama/Dem agenda is institutionalized envy, jealousy, covetousness, bitterness and theft. Obama’s new commandment is that we must covet the wealth of anybody that makes more than $250,000/year. And the Church doesn’t speak out against this.
Christians look at the lefts agenda of envy/jealousy/covetousness and fall for the lie that it is all love and light. They weigh abortion against the “great charitable heart” of Democrats and come out for Dems. The Dems compound sin with sin, evil with evil. There is no trade off.
The Catholic bishops are the biggest supporters of the destructive, larcenous welfare state from hell. And then come election time they tell their flock not to vote for abortion. Too late.
Envy is a sin. Jealousy is a sin. Looking to the government to meet your needs and solve your problems isidolatry, the worst of all.
You're wasting your time. The Black church is an ethnic church. Their "brethren" are people with the same skin color. Religious affiliation means next to nothing to them.
