On the day of rememberance of this great liberal clergy who bought equality for the black folks in the US, I enjoyed the song “we shall overcome”. But it is one thing to have equal rights but another to move on when we have lost much. After 50 years, things have changed with even a black President but the stats on welfare, adultery, abortion, substance abuse, wedlocks, and incarcerations are not good.
It is very hard to move on when we have suffered much. The mainline churches keep bringing up racism still as an issue, but the real issue now after 50 years of equal rights is within, to forgive and to recognise our own darkness, pain, frustrations and woundings. This the Cross of Calvary why Jesus had to die. The black community and clergy in particular are notoriously anti gay because gays are the other, lower than them, and a scapegoat for their own sins.
John 1:5 and the light shines in the darkness, and darkness did not comprehend it.
There is deep darkness in the Persian revolution led by the mullahs and people of faith. Thousands of gays has been slaughered with minimal human rights yet little condemnation from the mainline churches in the US lest it contradicts their theology that all religion is about love and leads somehow to God. They denied the truth. The mainline churches are so eager to ban Israel yet not ban Iran, Iraq, and Saudi for persecuting Christians because they do not see the suffering body of Christ.
As the funeral possession happened in Iran for their beloved General, the people of faith were shouting “death to the US” and “death to Israel” (not reported in liberal Christian media) . The US liberal mainline news organizations claimed that it was an assassination not revealing that the General was a designated a Terrorist (designated by the Obama administration) and he was in a meeting with the militias who had just attacked the US Embassy.
There is so much darkness and yet this darkness was not perceived by mainline Christians determined to take a higher ground by calling Trump a war monger. The darkness of the war already happening in Iraq since 2004 they do not see much like the deaths of the unborn they actively condoned, a reminder of the Jews sacrificing their new born to Molech in the bible. The gatekeepers in Singapore fear that gays will bring the wrath of God to Singapore, but biblical darkness can be seen in every corner in pagan worship. Gays are just a scapegoat because the gatekeepers also fear darkness.

The killing of the Iranian mastermind General has provoked strong response from Mainline Christians and clergy claiming that it was an election ploy to start a war with the likes of Iran or North Korea and the US did not do the same to Saudi Arabia for 911. These alleged Christians should be ashamed of themselves for indirectly supporting Iran, a nation known for persecuting Christians, calling for destruction of Israel, and killing GLBTs.
The General was such a pain with all the paper cuts against the US that killing him doesn’t matter any more. Iran thought the US would never react and escalate into war lest they get blamed by liberals being a war monger. US took the single strongest retaliatory action because it was a calculated risk that the aftermath would be no different than the increasing attacks by Iranian proxies against the US. The Iranian Supreme leader, a clergy of faith, taunted Trump that he could not do anything after the attack on the US embassy.
