Why the Name?

So why did I choose the name Black By Color Only? On October 16, 1995 (my 27th birthday), a historical event took place known as "The Million Man March", led by the so-called minister Louis Farrakhan. The black community, for the most part, was moved with pride at the event. I, however, was unimpressed at the event, being that I like being an individual who doesn't like to cater to the collective thought of a race of individuals. Anyway, some time afterwards, I read an editorial in the local paper praising the recent event, so I decided to respond and give my point of view of the MMM. A few days later, my article appeared in the editorial and, a few more days later, a couple of people responded. One of them lamented that I said I was black--apparently by color only. It was then that I was struck by inspiration. What if I had some kind of program or forum, or whatever, titled Black By Color Only? That would be--how should I say it--cool! It has taken a while, but the inspiration has now materialized into this blog. Hopefully, in the future, it could materialize into something bigger.

Just to let you know a little about me:

I am a firm believer in the Bible and the deity of Jesus Christ.

Although I don't consider myself Republican or Democrat, I tend to favor a conservative point of view.

I believe this country should be run according to our Constitution.

I favor the Fair Tax in which the current tax code (and the IRS) will be eliminated and replaced by a consumer based tax.

I don't vote in favor of my wallet but in favor of morals and principles.

Just because I'm black doesn't mean I hold to the point of view of mainstream black America.

I believe racism is as big a problem in the black community as it is in the white community, and maybe more so.

The above statements get me in trouble with my fellow black "bruthas" who believe I should think like them. They proceed to call me a white lover, an Uncle Tom, and a sellout. Hey, when you throw a brick into a pack of dogs, the one you hit is the one that yelps the loudest.

I hope that you will get something meaningful from this blog. If you want to get even more about what I believe in, tune in to blogtalkradio.com/blackbycoloronly to hear my online radio program. I hope you have a good time visiting and I hope to see you on the rebound.

Separation of Church and State


"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."


The statement above belongs to the beginning clause of the First Amendment to the US Constitution and is probably the most misinterpreted, misread, and mishandled statement in the entire document. Certain interpreters of the Constitution have twisted this statement to fit their ideals of what they want it to say instead of understanding it in its context.


We have all heard the statement declaring "Separation of Church and State" and most of us believe this is written in the Constitution. However, when carefully perused, one will find that this statement is missing in action. However, that hasn't stopped organizations like the ACLU and NEA from trying to beat it into our heads.


Open prayer and Bible study is prohibited in the US public school system because of misinterpretation of the First Amendment. You cannot bring a Bible, talk about Jesus, or even say your grace openly in the system or the aforementioned organizations will swoop down and try to strangle you with their nasty talons. "Religion doesn't belong in school!" they shout. "We don't want the Bible in the schools because the children are too impressionable." No kidding; that's our point. However, the hypocrisy of the liberal agenda starts to show through like a grape juice stain on a piece of white cloth.


The liberals believe they are the tolerant bunch. They say that they are permissive of all lifestyles, no matter what. However, when it comes to Christians, that tolerance flies out the window.


In a landmark case in 1962, one woman (Madalyn Murray O'Hare) challenged the First Amendment saying it showed that prayer in schools was unconstitutional. The Supreme Court agreed and prayer was deemed illegal in school. However, this opened the doors to a state-sponsored religion known as secular humanism in which man is the center and is not accountable to any higher power (God). Evolution and New Ageism flooded in and our school systems were overpowered. Today, children are encouraged to read Harry Potter, Daddy's Roommate, and Heather Has Two Mommies instead of the Bible. Children are encouraged to color pictures of witches and monsters instead of Moses and Jesus. They're encouraged to watch Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street instead of Jesus of Nazareth or the Ten Commandments. All along, the wicked ACLU and NEA are leading the way.


Now here's the hypocrisy: Evolution, witchcraft, and New Ageism are all religions. Of course the God-haters won't admit it because they will have to explain why they are so intolerant of Christians but are so lenient on humanists and witches. When one points this out, these people dispense with the character assassinations, calling Christians the "intolerant religious right." Whether they want to admit it or not, belief in evolution is religion. Witchcraft is sometimes referred to as "the old religion". Where are the cries of "We need to keep religion out of the school system" then?


Another accusation the liberal-mongers like to fire at Christians is that Christianity doesn't support "real" science. They say that Christians believe a fairy tale about the earth being created in six days, like that's worse than believing that after a period of millions of years an ape became a human being. Moreover, if Christianity is a fairy tale, we need to get Harry Potter out of school as well. Evolution isn't supported by "real" science, either. Of course, I'm just a Christian bigot who hates science and am intolerant of people who don't think like I do. Wait a minute...I'm starting to sound like a liberal!


Why don't the liberals, atheists, and other God-bashers just admit that they don't want to hear about Jesus, or God, or the Bible instead of offering this "separation of church and state" garbage? Why don't they just admit that they don't like the sight of a football team kneeling down in prayer before a game? Why go about this hypocritical double-speak when it would be easier to just come on out and admit it?


Maybe they're not just hypocrites but cowards as well. Hmmm...interesting.

SEPARATION OF RAUNCH AND STATE !

(It's still legal - and always God-honoring - to air messages like the following. See Ezekiel 3:18-19. In light of government backing of raunchy behavior (such offenders were even executed in early America!), maybe the separation we really need is the "separation of raunch and state"!)

In Luke 17 in the New Testament, Jesus said that one of the big "signs" that will happen shortly before His return to earth as Judge will be a repeat of the "days of Lot" (see Genesis 19 for details). So gays are actually helping to fulfill this same worldwide "sign" (and making the Bible even more believable!) and thus hurrying up the return of the Judge! They are accomplishing what many preachers haven't accomplished! Gays couldn't have accomplished this by just coming out of closets into bedrooms. Instead, they invented new architecture - you know, closets opening on to Main Streets where little kids would be able to watch naked men having sex with each other at festivals in places like San Francisco (where their underground saint - San Andreas - may soon get a big jolt out of what's going on over his head!). Thanks, gays, for figuring out how to bring back our resurrected Saviour even quicker!
