Jeremiah Wright is not the only racist "pastor" Barack Obama has run with. Joseph Lowery, the man who delivered the benediction in 2009 at his inauguration said "I don't know what kind of a n----- wouldn't vote with a black man running," and that all white people are going to Hell.
"We've turned our backs on the faith," said Lowery. "America is going to hell in a hand basket. We need to straighten up so God can use us."
Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back to where he was.
"I'm frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out in this election," said Lowery.
Ya think? It doesn't appear he is frightened enough? Instead he is spewing more hatred.
"I don't know what kind of a n----- wouldn't vote with a black man running," said Lowery.
Forsyth Mayor John Howard, a member of St. James who opened Saturday's program, said he was "pretty shocked" by Lowery's comments. He said if a speaker had made the same comments about black people, he would have gotten up and left.
He said the Bible gives set instructions on how to go to heaven and it doesn't say anything about skin color. Hearing the comments he said he looked at the face of his pastor, the Rev. Antonio Proctor, and could tell he was real shocked too. Howard said he and Proctor talked about putting a video of the event on Forsyth Cable TV but decided after his comments that it wasn't a good idea.
The previous pastor of St. James, Adolph Parsons, who died three years ago, always taught the importance of loving everyone. Mr. Howard said, "The Bible doesn't say anything about white or black to go to heaven. I have great number of black and white friends. I've been in the military. I make friends with everybody. I'm too old for enemies."
One would hope that men like Lowery, Wright and Obama would learn from those that truly claim Christianity, rather than harbor their hatred for people with a different shade of skin. Sadly, it doesn't seem they have learned anything.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
