In Troubled Times, Does 'The Black Church' Still Matter?
From Michel Martin Going There
African-American clergy, academics and activists will hold a march on Washington this week, protesting the grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Mo. and New York City and call on the federal government to intervene in the prosecutions of police officers accused of unjustified use of force.
I talked with Reverend Raphael Warnock and Eddie Glaude, Jr., two prominent African-American religious thinkers, about the role of black churches in the wake of major protests and demonstrations inspired by events in Ferguson and New York City. Warnock is the senior pastor at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga. — a pulpit once held by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. — and was in Washington to attend a conference hosted by the Black Church Center for Justice and Equality. Glaude is a professor of religion and chair of the Center for African American Studies at Princeton University. In 2010, he wrote an attention-grabbing essay called "The Black Church is Dead."
A black parishioner shares his frustration with the absence of outrage from the pulpit at his majority-white place of worship.

These are trying times in our country. Folks are hurting, bewildered, and confused. It is times like these that reveal true leadership; Those willing to stand up and speak out to confront controversial topics and provide direction and proactive solutions. Your ability to marry Christianity with social activism is reminiscent of the great leaders of the Civil Rights era. Keep up the great work!

Please join us Sunday 10AM CST/11AM EST as we discuss negative, racist black stereotypes and the people who perpetuate them.
We will discuss the brilliant article written by Raina in depth.
Why is it acceptable in the secular community when negative stereotypes and caricatures of the black community (religious and otherwise) are presented to them?
Is it acceptable if black atheists perpetuate the stereotypes while attempting to pathologize the community that they claim that they want to help?
Is speaking at all white conferences considered activism nowadays?
Are black atheists silence on issues of racism, social justice, sexism, etc. being purchased with the promises of speaking engagements, etc.?
This and more on Sunday.

A MESSAGE TO BLACK PREACHERS AND CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS ON HOW TO EFFECTUATE THE ERRADIFICATION OF RACISM. AFTER 2000 YEARS OF SOCIAL PATHOLOGY...THE REMEDY IS AVAILED.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FALSE APOSTLES WHO CALL THEMSELVES PROSPERITY PREACHERS ARE EXPOSED AS MERE MONEY CHANGERS. WE WILL LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DISCIPLES COMMISSIONED BY JESUS TO PREACH HIS GOSPEL FROM FALSE APOSTLES WHO PRACTICE A BABYLONIAN PAGAN RELIGION CALLED CHRISTIANITY.
IN MATTHEW 10:5-9 JESUS "COMMISSIONED" HIS DISCIPLES TO PREACH AND COMMANDED THEM TO PREACH ACCORDING TO HIS EXAMPLE. JESUS DEFINED PREACHING BY EXERCISING THE POWERE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. HEAL THE SICK, RAISE THE DEAD, CAST OUT DEMONS AND DO NOT CHARGE MONEY FOR THESE SPIRITUAL PRACTICES. TODAY NO ONE IS PREACHING ACCORDING TO THE WAY JESUS COMMANDED THOSE THAT HE COMMISSIONED.
We have all heard the bad news about Black economics. From high unemployment rates to low income rates it seems like there is no end to problems, but there are very little solutions. That is what we are going to talk about tonight. How do we put this ship back on course? How do we turn around our communities to make them places where we want to live?

CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso said the wife of the man accused of shooting Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr. filed a rape complaint against Harris on Wednesday, two days before he was gunned down at the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles.
"Mr. Karey stated that he had received some inappropriate text messages from his wife to the pastor," Mancuso said.
Mancuso said their investigation has revealed allegations of a sexual relationship between Harris and Woodrow Karey Jr.'s wife, but he couldn't say whether the relationship was consensual.
Karey, 53, of Lake Charles, is facing a second-degree murder charge in the case. He is being held in the Calcasieu Correctional Center on $1 million bond.
"I'm sure we're going to get responses from both sides, saying that they're both great people and it's my understanding that Pastor Harris and Mr. Karey were great friends at some point ...," said Mancuso. "So, this makes it very difficult for us to get to the bottom of this if in fact people don't come forth and tell us the truth. We're in that process, it's going to take a long time but that's where we are in this investigation."A

On the heels of the Ferguson verdict this is the hot debate in the Black Community. Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year and can make or break many retailers. In protest many Black consumers have decided to boycott Black Friday to show the power of the Black Dollar. I have expressed my opinion here Why I do NOT think Blacks should boycott Black Friday, but I want to hear from you. Let's talk about it.
