"You cannot tell me what is or is not racist."


Black Woman’s Fiery Denunciation Of Critical Race Theory Before School Board

At a public meeting, a black woman in Loudoun County, Virginia, erupted in a fiery denunciation of the school board’s seeming intent to implement the teaching of Critical Race Theory, blasting, “CRT is racist; it is abusive; it discriminates against one’s color. … Think twice before you indoctrinate such racist theories. You cannot tell me what is or is not racist. Look at me. I had to come down here today to tell you to your face that we are coming together and we are strong.”

The woman began by quoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “In the words of Martin Luther King Jr., ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,’” she said. “Now I have a dream that we will implement love, not hate, or supporting another Jim Crow’s agenda. CRT is not a ‘nice dialogue,’ it was a tactic that was used by Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan on slaveries many years ago to dumb down my ancestors so we could not think for ourselves. CRT is racist; it is abusive; it discriminates against one’s color.”

Shaking her finger, she snapped, “Let me educate you: An honest dialogue does not oppress. An honest dialogue does not implement hatred and injustice; it’s to communicate without deceiving people. Today we don’t need your agreement. We want action and a backbone for what we ask for today: to ban CRT.”

Who is omitting God now?

Secularism’s century-old gambit to de-Christianize and secularize America added last week another abject abomination to its sacrilegious rap sheet as President Joe Biden became the first president in modern history to omit God, in word and deed, from the National Day of
Prayer Proclamation.

America, officially and practically, now no longer wants or needs God.

President Biden’s deliberate omission presents a striking example of the advancing deterioration of the American culture. The extent of this decline shows clearly in the stark contrast between the current president’s paltry prosaic profession and Democrat President Harry Truman’s radiant revelation back in 1952:

“Whereas from the earliest days of our history our people have been accustomed to turn to Almighty God for help and guidance; and

“Whereas in times of national crisis when we are striving to strengthen the foundations of peace and security we stand in special need of divine support; an

“Whereas the Congress, by a joint resolution approved on April 17, 1952 [66 Stat. 64], has provided that the President ‘shall set aside and proclaim a suitable day each year, other than a Sunday, as a National Day of Prayer, on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation’; and ...”

Dems Race Awareness of Hypocrisy with Scott Smear

Thanks to Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), we finally found all of those racists Joe Biden keeps talking about. They're on the Left, right under the president's nose. After Scott's inspirational response to the president's speech Wednesday night, we didn't have long to wait before the real party of intolerance came crawling out of its hole and attacked. In one of the most vile displays of hypocrisy, Democrats have apparently decided that it's okay to be prejudiced -- as long as the black man is a conservative.

For hours on social media, thanks to the indifferent Twitter police, so many people called Scott "Uncle Tim" that it started to trend. When the mob wasn't using racial slurs online, they turned to other media -- declaring the junior senator from South Carolina everything from an "apologist for white supremacy" to a "sycophantic black." One CNN contributor, Van Jones, called Scott's personal life experience "nonsense" -- while his congressional colleague, Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.) said he felt sorry for him, because he has to live in "denial" to get reelected. "I'm hopeful that he'll come to his senses on this subject."

Speaking of double standards, now that his own party looks like the kettle and the pot, the president has suddenly decided that America isn't a racist country after all. Twenty-four hours after he lectured the country on its prejudices, he told NBC's Today Show, "America is not a racist country." Vice President Kamala Harris also chimed in, repeating the same line almost word for word on ABC. So which is it? We may never know, since most Democrats would rather exploit the situation than have an honest conversation. They'd rather turn every policy debate into a question of personal character, because it's the only way to advance their agenda.

Systemic Racism ‘Horse Manure,’ Blasts ‘Very Harmful’ Critical Race Theory As ‘Race-Based’ Marxism

Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Thursday blasted accusations that the United States is systemically racist as “horse manure” and further said critical race theory is a race-based form of Marxism.

Asked to respond to the claim that America is “a systemically racist country,” DeSantis told Fox News host Laura Ingraham during a town hall that such a proposition is “a bunch of horse manure.”

“I mean, give me a break. This country has had more opportunity for more people than any country in the history of the world, and it doesn’t matter where you trace your ancestry from,” DeSantis said to applause from the audience. “We’ve had people that have been able to succeed.”

R.T. Kendall: Fixing Our Eyes on God


For years, I've appreciated the teaching and writing ministry of R. T. Kendall. The following comes from his article in the May 2021 edition of Decision Magazine  . . .

"A difference between Israel and America is that God chose Israel; America chose God. This was clear in the Christian faith of the pilgrims who came to America on the Mayflower in 1620. The Great Awakening in New England (1730-1750) influenced our forefathers in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Our national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner,” was written by Francis Scott Key, a God-fearing man. The Supreme Court historically demonstrated reverence for the Ten Commandments. The U.S. Congress and Senate historically opened their sessions with Christian prayer. Prayer and Bible reading in schools was common all over America. That is the America in which I grew up.

Despite her failures, God blessed America from her beginnings and has continued to do so for two centuries. But at some point we began to take God for granted and little by little began to reject Him—made evident by our legalizing abortions for any reason, showing contempt for historic Christian marriage, feeling no shame for our racism and tolerating theological liberalism in American pulpits. The fear of God in America has virtually vanished.

It is scary. Paul speaks of God’s wrath being on those who 'suppress the truth' (Romans 1:18) and, as a consequence, we have this reference three times: 'God gave them up' (Romans 1:24, 26, 28). He merely looked the other way. It has often been said that if the Holy Spirit were completely withdrawn from the church today, 90% of the work of the church would go on as if nothing happened."

UK Judge Rules in Favor of Franklin Graham’s Blackpool Festival

In one of the most comprehensive rebukes of cancel culture in recent memory, a court in the United Kingdom affirmed April 1 that Christians and people of other faiths who hold traditional religious views about marriage and human sexuality are entitled to protection under the law.

Judge Claire Evans found that the defendants—the Blackpool Borough Council and its public transportation company—violated the U.K.’s Equality Act 2010 and discriminated against the Lancashire Festival of Hope with Franklin Graham when they removed bus advertisements for the event in response to complaints from the LGBTQ community about Franklin’s Biblical view of marriage. Evans said that the defendants’ actions were “the antithesis of the manner in which a public authority should behave in a democratic society.” 

The judge noted that sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage, which are characteristic of Christianity and other religions, do not make the individuals or organizations that hold them “extremist.”

Is It Too Late for America?

Over the last century, as American Christendom deserted the public square, Christians essentially turned civil government and “the making, enforcement, and adjudication of laws over to Satan and to those who serve him.”

From a Biblical perspective, present-day America is an unmitigated disaster, brought about by secularism’s toxic ideology infiltrating the culture through newsrooms, public education, professional sports, arts and entertainment, diversity-centered government, and Fortune 500’s latest flight of fancy that “profit is secondary to diversity.”

This is guaranteed not to end well, in particular because American Christendom, over the last 100 years, has hidden her light under the bushel and behind the four walls of the church building.

The Church’s recent model of butts, budgets, and buildings is opposite to Jesus’ Kingdom assignment to His disciples in Matthew 16:18, where it says that His ekklesia was to be positioned in the rough and tumble of the public square. Consequently, freedom is now in peril as secularists have altered the values, views, politics, and laws of the people of the United States.

Where do we go from here?

Since politics is downstream from culture, Christians must move Jesus’ ekklesia into the culture. The time for measuring the temperature of American Christendom by market research firms polling, studying and reporting on religious beliefs and behavior of American Christians in all likeliness has passed.

If we are to make it through, Christians must now start influencing the temperature by entering the public square in order to regulate the spiritual climate all over America.

First of all, pastor-led prayer must be reestablished in America’s churches, and secondly, pastors, ministry leaders, and congregants need to campaign and get elected to state, regional, county, municipal, district, and judicial offices across America. All this in keeping with the Kingdom assignment to “occupy until I come,” as Jesus instructs in Luke 19:13.

The spiritual battle to retake the cultural mountains of influence shall be like having a tiger by the tail. By entering the public square, Rahabs and Gideons can demonstrate their love of Christ and their resistance to the destructive plague devastating America. In the words of A.W. Tozer, they would bear witness of their love for “Christ and the souls of men to the point of willingness to die for the glory of the One and the salvation of the other. But they will fear nothing that breathes with mortal breath.”

America Last: President Joe Biden’s First 100 Days

All these policies do harm to America and don’t put Americans first.

The Biden administration has already proven to be insufferably, deliberately, and totally dishonest. The past 100 days have been a tale of two stories. One is propped up by the elite media and based on big lies and the arrogance that crazy radical policies are empathetic. The other is rooted in the reality of the concerns and interests of real Americans.

With the exception of the breakout of the Civil War at the onset of Lincoln’s presidency, the Biden administration’s first 100 days have been the most radical in American history."

Kathy Ireland recalls the moment she wanted ‘to follow Jesus Christ’

During one night in 1981, the former cover girl was going through her suitcase when she discovered that her mom had secretly packed a Bible for her.

"I didn’t even know how to read one," said Ireland. "I’d never read one before in my life. I opened up the Book of Matthew. And as I’m reading in the middle of the night, I knew I was holding the truth in my hands. There wasn’t anybody in the room saying, ‘Be this denomination or that denomination.’ It was like, ‘I want to follow Jesus Christ.’ And he was nothing like I thought."

"In my industry, at that time, it was filled with a lot of really sketchy guys," she continued. "I was drawn to how powerful Jesus was. How loving and honoring he was of women. It gave me such comfort. And so, he became my lord and savior. The experience forever changed my life."

Sen. Tim Scott’s Powerful Response to Biden’s Address to Congress

"The American family deserves better and we know what better looks like. Just before COVID, we had the most inclusive economy in my lifetime, the lowest unemployment rates ever
recorded for African Americans, Hispanics, and Asians, and a 70-year-low, nearly, for women. Hear me, wages were growing faster at the bottom than at the top. The bottom 25% saw their wages go up faster than the top 25%. That happened because Republicans focus on expanding opportunity for all Americans.

In addition to that, we’ve passed opportunity zones, criminal justice reform, and permanent funding for historically black colleges and universities for the first time ever. We fought the drug epidemic, rebuilt our military, and cut taxes for working families and single moms, like the one that raised me.

Our best future will not come from Washington schemes or socialist dreams. It will come from you, the American people: black, Hispanic, white, and Asian; Republican and Democrat; brave police officers in black neighborhoods."

Tim Scott Reacts to ‘Uncle Tim’ Slur: ‘Literally Attacking the Color of My Skin’


Senator Tim Scott (R., S.C.) on Thursday morning slammed critics of his response to President
Biden’s address to a Joint Session of Congress, saying the Twitter trend “Uncle Tim” shows that the American left is committed to a racialized politics that leaves no room for good faith disagreement.

“It has been an amazing morning with so many good people calling, but the left has doubled down,” Scott said Thursday during an appearance on Fox News. “. . . You cannot step down out of your lane according to the liberal elite left.”

Scott called the trend on Twitter, which took off Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, “upsetting” and “so disappointing.”
