This past weekend So called Conservative Pundit Glen Beck invoked images of Dr. Martin Luther King and the March on Washington for Jobs and Social Justice as he spoke at a rally of so called conservatives. I will only focus on one aspect of his speech. "We have forgotten God, we have to get back to God!"
As a child growing up in the Seventh Day Adventist Christian Church we were taught that the preachers of the day would use this language and that it would signal the coming of the Anti Christ or for those familiar with this blog the "Counterfeit Christ". It would be a precursor to State Sponsered Enforcement of Religion or more acturately a State Sponsered Religion and a persecution of those who would not follow the States religion. (SUNDAY WORSHIP)
"We have forgotten God, we have to get back to God!"
I'm not gonna spell out Seventh Day Adventist Theology or give a Bible Study on the Truth about Sunday (1st Day) Worship or the Creation Sabbath (7th Day). Nah! That's another post. But I would say this about Glen Beck. You are NOT Dr. King, and while some would compare your march to his, they would be mistaken! Yes! You both had a march. Yes! You both spoke in Washington. That's where the similarities end!
Mr. Beck, when Past President Bush started the Iraq War based on faulty info why weren't you calling for God then? When the so called Middle Class was shrinking and the divide between the RICH and POOR was growing larger and larger every day. You weren't hollering bout GOD!
When Katrina happened and American Citizens were Homeless, Jobless and scattered across the wind due to faulty levies and neglect by the United States Army Corp of Engineers, You were Not fighting for those citizens! You were Not calling for the heads of those Engineers, State heads and etc responsible! When Bush and Co neglected them for over five days You didn't criticize them!
When 20 years of Phill Gramm inspired economic thinking and de regulation finally helped to collapse the US Economic System! You didn't cry out for oversight or regulation or even Jail for those responsible. In fact you still supported them! YOU are still supporting them NOW!
So why God now? In my Bible God says that what you do unto the least of these you do unto ME! He was speaking of the poor. Are you an avocate of the poor now Glen? I hope I can call you Glen.
So what Book are you reading and what God are you saying we need to get back to? You mean more of those good ole fashion family values that the Republicans promote but don't follow themselves?
Newsflash for you Glen! Black Folks have always Been Back to God! You don't speak for us and Guess what? You don't speak to us either! You don't speak for the AMERICAN People! Wanna Get right with the God (IAM) start doing for the poor. Stop your hateful rhethoric towards President Obama and try to work with him. Encourage your Republican friends to do the same for once! Hey if you desire to live a real righteous life, steeped in the principles of God (IAM) then Go ahead on Glen! But right now you just another one of a long line of Republican jackels who have invoked the name of God and point a certain segment towards a false idol of God (IAM) whenever it was politically necessary.
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
