WATCH: Prominent Pastor Says Trump May Turn Out to Be the Best President in Our Lifetime for the Black Community

Published

on

There is a glitch in the progressive Matrix.

The mainstream media does everything they can to bury this terribly inconvenient fact, but the President they’ve been working hard to paint as a racist, sexist, bigoted homophobe just so happens to have a vibrant and vocal community of minority, female, and gay supporters.

One of the greatest speeches of his political career, in this author’s humble opinion, was the speech he gave in Milwaukee in August of 2016.

After several years of increased racial tension, often violent identity politics, Trump spoke to a city that was at that moment in the midst of violent race riots fueled by media outrage over a justified police killing of a young black man who pointed a loaded weapon at a police officer, also black.

Trump managed to tap into something that conservative African Americans had been saying for years: the Democrats had failed them.

That night, Trump had a simple request of the black community: “I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen struggling in our country today who wants a different future.”

“The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community. Democratic crime policies, education policies, and economic policies have produced only more crime, more broken homes, and more poverty,” he explained, breaking down the failing schools, the skyrocketing crime rates, the fear that African Americans parents and children lived in as law and order crumbled around them.

“To every parent who dreams for their children, and to every child who dreams for their future,” he concluded, ” say these words to you tonight: I’m with you, I will fight for you, and I will win for you.”

Now, according to Pastor Darrell Scott, a prominent black pastor who joined a group of faith leaders from our nation’s struggling inner cities, it appears Trump has indeed followed through on that promise and may turn out to the most beneficial president for the black community in recent memory, an ironic fact considering he’s following up the first black president in history.

Here’s what Scott said:

I’ve had the honor and privilege to work with then-candidate, now President Trump, and to observe him behind the scenes and have a number of personal conversations with him. And people ask me why do I defend him so vociferously? And I say it’s easy for me to do because I know him, and he’s shown me his heart, and I know he has a heart for all Americans.

And I will say this – this administration has taken a lot of people by surprise, and it’s going to surprise you guys even more because this is probably the most proactive administration regarding urban America and the faith-based community in my lifetime. And I’ll be 60 years old in December.

But when I think back on – well, I use good hair dye, and I’ve got a great makeup artist. But, to be honest, this is probably going to be the – and I’m going to say this at this table – the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime because – and I try to, you know, analyze the people that I encounter – this president actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community and our ethnic community.

The last president didn’t feel like he had to. He felt like he didn’t have to prove it. He got a pass. This president is – this administration is probably going to be more proactive regarding urban revitalization and prison reform than any president in your lifetime.

If we work together, give him a chance, don’t pay any attention to these guys back here, and I’ll promise you, we will do something that…this administration will continue to make history. It’s going to be a lot of positive changes. Great things are on the horizon, I promise.

Pelosi is Barred from Communion by Archbishop of San Fran

WHOA!

Published

on

Of all of the personal, bitter, hot topics that our nation is facing, perhaps none is quite as raw as abortion.

With the Supreme Court seemingly poised to overturn Roe v. Wade sometimes in the not-so-distant future, the issue is once again at the forefront of the American political theater, and the fervor is increasing by the minute.

Now, in a wild escalation of the national narrative, church is giving state a little bit of blowback.

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone announced Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is barred from receiving Holy Communion due to her pro-abortion stance — marking an escalation in a decades-long tension between the Roman Catholic Church and liberal Democratic politicians on abortion.

Cordileone has written to the California Democrat, informing her that she should not present herself for Holy Communion at Mass, and that priests will not distribute communion to her if she does present herself.

He did not hold back.

“A Catholic legislator who supports procured abortion, after knowing the teaching of the Church, commits a manifestly grave sin which is a cause of most serious scandal to others. Therefore, universal Church law provides that such persons ‘are not to be admitted to Holy Communion,'” he says in the letter.

And also:

Cordileone says in his letter that he wrote to her on April 7, informing her that “should you not publicly repudiate your advocacy for abortion ‘rights’ or else refrain from referring to your Catholic faith in public and receiving Holy Communion, I would have no choice but to make a declaration, in keeping with canon 915, that you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.” He says that since that time, she has not done so.

“Therefore, in light of my responsibility as the Archbishop of San Francisco to be ‘concerned for all the Christian faithful entrusted to [my] care” (Code of Canon Law, can. 383, §1), by means of this communication I am hereby notifying you that you are not to present yourself for Holy Communion and, should you do so, you are not to be admitted to Holy Communion, until such time as you publically repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin in the sacrament of Penance.” he said.

And with Catholics making up a rather large voting bloc in America, (and California, too), Nancy Pelosi may have to get to praying.

SCOTUS Rules Against Boston After City Refused to Fly Christian Flag

The decision was seen as a win for Christians everywhere.

Published

on

In the United States, we are guaranteed the freedom to practice whichever religion we should choose, and have been since the inception of this great nation.

What we are not guaranteed, however, is freedom from religion.  We are allowed to believe what we wish, but we must also understand that this means we may bear witness to the beliefs of others who are exercising their rights.  Maybe we’ll see a yarmulke at the grocery store, or get stuck in traffic as a baptist megachurch lets out on Sunday.

It also means that all religions must be treated equally – something that the City of Boston is learning the hard way this week.

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that a program of the city of Boston that allows outside groups to fly flags at city hall must permit the flying of flag with a cross that a camp referred to as a “Christian flag.”

The question before the court was whether flying the flag as part of a government program was considered government speech if the flag belonged to a private organization, in this case, Camp Constitution. The Supreme Court ruled that it is not.

The ruling left no room for interpretation.

“We conclude that, on balance, Boston did not make the raising and flying of private groups’ flags a form of government speech,” Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in the court’s opinion, stating that as a result the city improperly violated Camp Constitution’s free speech rights.

And that’s not all:

The court’s opinion pointed to how Boston said their goal is “to accommodate all applicants” looking to hold events in the city’s “public forums,” including City Hall Plaza, and the flag flying application only asked for contact information and a short description of the event being requested.

Breyer noted that the city employee who fields flag applications testified that before Camp Constitution’s application, he had never even asked to see a flag before granting approval or even before they were raised.

“The city’s practice was to approve flag raisings, without exception,,” Breyer wrote.

The news comes as the mainstream media continues to equate the religious right with the lesser opinions they hold of conservatives in general, thereby creating a soft vilification of Christianity in the process.
