A message from Satan ... the Trump madness at Easter ... let this be a warning to all Americans! Murky, murkier, murkiest. Not grabbing pussy in the White House? Time to leave this role, it's not befitting the House for this Nation's Greatest Leaders ... the Playacting President of right-wing white supremacists losing it. His burial with be in November 2020. Lifting the curtain for this charade of the Republican party, may their loss in U.S. Congress be of the same proportion as how the predicted pandemic decimated the elderly and less fortunate this year. Defeat this capitalism of doom and take the wealth preaching pastors along with it to hell. After 9/11 under Bush first term, Katrina disaster in 2005, the bank- and financial crisis of 2008-09, austerity lashing out, inequality on the increase and the techno giants of Silicon Valley with greed over people and democracy.
The world may not return to the old "normal". Take the destiny into your hands and defeat Trump this election against all odds of manipulation, propaganda and disinformation. Enough of the LIES and incompetence.
This simple remark triggered my interest to look into this christian [What's In A Name?] pastor. "Prayer for a thriving economy" in an Easter message of hope for a devastated nation, suffering an immense health pandemic. There will never be a return to normal as lives have been cut short. "Herd immunity" ... delay in preparation for the coming pandemic predicted over a decade ago. Profit before people's welfare. The roaring years of a stock market boom ... on whom will Trump and his minions in Congress blame their misfortune and how to confuse cause and effect to sell it during the coming presidential campaign.
Inviting the black bigot pastor to deliver this message is a blasphemy of Jesus Christ and his first principle: "Love Thy Neighbour As Thyself."
Harry Jackson and Donald Trump are about selfishness, greed and welfare for the wealthy because they are targets of god's grace. Pure heresy of Christian Faith of People of Good Will as laid down in the foundation of Bethlehem. Israel and the Palestinian religious sites are all SHUT DOWN.
More below the fold ...
Remarks by President Trump at Easter Blessing with Bishop Harry Jackson
THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much. On this Good Friday, Christians from all around the world remember the suffering and death upon the cross of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. At Easter Sunday, we will celebrate his glorious resurrection.
At this holy time, our nation is engaged in a battle like never before -- the invisible enemy. Our brave doctors, nurses, and responders -- first responders, responders of all -- are fighting to save lives. Our workers are racing to deliver critical medical supplies. Our best scientists are working around the clock to develop lifesaving therapeutics, and I think they're doing really well in doing so. Our people are making tremendous sacrifices to end this pandemic.
Though we will not be able to gather together with one another as we normally would on Easter, we can use this sacred time to focus on prayer, reflection, and growing in our personal relationship with God. So important.
With God On His Side
From the archives: Before he was John McCain's spiritual adviser, Rod Parsley rose to power via his controversial "Word of Faith" doctrine and his support for Ohio's gay marriage ban.
When Zell Miller took the stage at one of Ohio's largest "megachurches" last August, there was no talk of spitballs or duels, but there was plenty of rhetoric about soldiers and war. As the featured speaker at both a regular Sunday-evening church service and a political rally for about 1,300 pastors the following morning, the former Georgia senator wasn't talking about gun-toting soldiers bringing democracy to the Middle East. Instead, to the delight of thousands of congregants at the World Harvest Church in Columbus, Miller spoke of Bible-toting Christian soldiers bringing theocracy to America.
The apostate Democrat came to Ohio as the special guest of televangelist Rod Parsley, a rising star of the Christian right who was lifted from political obscurity onto the national stage for his role in mobilizing voters in favor of his state's gay-marriage ban last year. Parsley, a Bible-college dropout who claims to have begun his evangelical career in his parents' backyard by preaching to a tiny congregation nearly 20 years ago, now boasts a 12,000-member church with affiliated schools offering education from preschool through college; a daily television program, Breakthrough, seen on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and other fundamentalist-Christian television outlets; a 2,000-member fellowship of affiliated churches; and a political organization, the Orwellian-sounding Center for Moral Clarity. But Parsley, who is hailed by the theocratic Christian right as a model of virtue and a representative of "values voters," has been questioned by congregants and even his own family about his church governance and secretive fund-raising practices.
"Probably President Bush would not be in office today had it not been for him," said Bishop Harry Jackson, a black pastor from the Washington, D.C., suburbs and a fellow rising star in the religious right. A registered Democrat who said that he and Parsley share the same theological and political viewpoint, Jackson runs the High Impact Leadership Coalition, which promotes its "Black Contract With America on Moral Values." That effort has led Jackson into alliance with the Arlington Group, a coalition of the Christian-right political elite with which Parsley is also a∞liated. According to Jackson, Parsley's style of preaching is "very, very user-friendly to African Americans," which may explain why the white pastor has a congregation that is 40-percent black. Jackson also maintained that Parsley's work with Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell, as a "black and white team" campaigning for the gay-marriage ban in churches across Ohio, created the "ricochet effect" of bringing out voters for George W. Bush in 2004.
Male and misconception
Preachers confront 'last taboo': Condemning greed amid Great Recession | CNN Belief Blog - 2011 |
Bishop Harry Jackson is a former college middle linebacker who can still hit hard.
He once described same-sex marriage as a satanic plot to destroy the family, called on Republicans to get "political Viagra" and said African-Americans needed to abandon what he called the Gospel of Victimization.
Jackson is not shy about stirring up controversy, but he stops short when it comes to preaching about greed. The Maryland bishop said he encourages his congregation to get through the Great Recession by saving and sharing. But he doesn't want to alienate well-off members by talking about what's behind the nation's economic woes.
"I've got to watch it," said Jackson, pastor at Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Maryland. "I could get into some big teaching on greed, but the reality is that a lot of that teaching may wind up creating anti-economic-growth and anti-capitalism concepts (in people's minds). ... I always talk about personal responsibility so we don't get into the blame game."
The Great Recession is more than an economic crisis. It has become a spiritual dilemma for some of the nation's pastors and their parishioners, religious leaders say.
Three years after an implosion of the nation's financial system helped push the country into its worst economic nosedive since the Great Depression, pastors are still trying to figure out how to address people's fears from the pulpit.
But first they have to deal with their own fears, some pastors and scholars say.
Though millions of Americans are angry over the economy, little moral outrage seems to be coming from the nation's pulpit, they say. Too many pastors opt for offering pulpit platitudes because they are afraid parishioners will stop giving money if they hear teachings against greed, said the Rev. Robin R. Meyers, senior minister of Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ in Oklahoma City.
New Report Examines Political Activities of Bishop Harry Jackson, Face of the Religious Right's Outreach to African Americans | Common Dreams - April 2009 |
A new report released today by People For the American Way Foundation examines the political activities of Bishop Harry Jackson, who has emerged as the leading African American voice of the Religious Right political movement.
The Maryland-based Jackson, who helped organize religious leaders to back anti-gay ballot initiatives in 2008, is now waging a campaign in the District of Columbia against the Council's move toward marriage equality. He is hosting an anti-marriage rally in D.C. on Tuesday, April 28. He also continues to fight federal hate crimes legislation.
Harry Jackson: Point Man for the Wedge Strategy
The report, which draws on first-person visits to Jackson appearances
as well as published reports, includes extensive links to Jackson video
appearances available online. Among the items of interest:
told Christians in 2004 that God had told him to campaign for George W.
Bush's reelection, Religious Right leaders invited him into their inner
circles and helped him launch the High Impact Leadership Coalition, a vehicle
for his public appearances.
►In 2008, Jackson
appeared on television and in an ad produced by a right-wing organization
trying to convince Black Christians not to vote for Barack Obama.
In 2006 he campaigned for Republican candidates Ken Blackwell and Michael
Steele. He gets political mileage out of describing himself as a
"registered Democrat" but has said that's largely to deflect
criticism in his home state of Maryland.
► Jackson is
harshly critical of traditional civil rights leaders and organizations like the
NAACP and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, accusing them of selling
out African American families by supporting LGBT equality.
Also a reason why black South Carolina easily defeated Bernie Sanders and pushed Joe Biden into his seat for the presidential candidacy for conservative Democrats of America.
