When the Republican Party realized this short coming for President Bush, they decided to play a game with the church and the Bible. They decided to encourage many churches to become political in their favor and in return will not be audited for taxes and they will get more of their faith based program sponsored. The church was expected to work on the fears of their followers against Islamic invasion of terrorists and most importantly, homosexuality. The former was meant to make President Bush look like a strong protector waging a just war in Iraq, and the latter was to make the Democratic Party look anti-Biblical in its open-mindedness towards accepting all Americans as they are. I do mind if majority of Americans feel it is okay to go wage an unjust war for its oil, or should I say against terrorism. I also do not mind if they are also scared that homosexuality might affect their children’s view on life, but this should not be the main concern of the Africans or African Christians in America.
Every African Christian worthy its godly creation must vow to take a stand against all forms of oppression and colonization on any people for the sake of oil, gold, timber, cheap labor, or water. We can not love God and talk about a spiritual heaven when we can not vote to prevent mass murder, loss of cultural identity, poverty, and spread of diseases here on earth. The most shameful thing I have seen from the African Christians in America was that they allowed money and human power to deviate their godly responsibility from the economic and political adequacy of their families to the political ambition of one man. It was amazing how African churches and African peoples of Jesus were going around as errand boys while telling others that the Bible said in the last days there will be wars, and it never said that we Christians will not be a part of it (justifying the Iraq war). Some Christian in some European headed churches were told not to vote for money and economic reason, but to vote for God and morality (against homosexuality and the Democrats). They were told that homosexuality is so wrong that Christians going to heaven must stay away from it. Should we not also stay away from unjust wars, lies, unemployment, and forced cheap labor?
Many of the African Christian actually voted for the war and unemployment which is taking money away from their families, and instead voted against sexual preference that has nothing to do with their godly responsibility to their society. I do not support homosexuality, but we must show God’s love to all, including owners of oil companies, pastor that commit adultery, and priests that sodomize little children. African Christians must also realize that if they fail to lead their families to economic and political relevance in our generation, our children will ultimately become the prostitutes and homosexuals they so fear that they forgot to follow the Biblical standard. A lot of lazy immigrants that do not have the papers to secure good paying jobs and want to live flamboyant lifestyles are known to be the dolls (girls) in many Atlanta homosexual clubs and bars. I have actually run across an African man that left his wife and daughter in New Jersey to pursue the lucrative lifestyle of a homosexual doll due to lack of income. God always blessed his people with wealth and power. If the Africans fail to elect leaders that can speak for their interests or pass the laws to make God’s blessing a reality for their families, we can as well burn down the Bible and our churches, and become the political and economic stepping stone for others like we have always being proud of doing.
