    I Never Knew You

    Matthew 7:21-23 “21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

    Repbluicans are the worst type of Christian. You have sold your sold to Satan, because he give you US Supreme Court Justices, but you do not support true justice. You teach about taking care of the widows and orphans, but you said, "let the old people die, I want a haircut!" Just because you refused to stay indoors for a few weeks, to decrease the spread of a deadly pandemic.

    “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”


    Your tiny god (trump) is a vulgar hideous slob whose presence even repulse his mail-order whore bride.

    It is easy to see how gullible people lie you end up in religious cults. You refuse to think for yourselves and look to the loudest mouth in your echo chamber to determine your thoughts and opinions. 


    Just admit that you are all dumb racists bigots who are too cowardly to say what you really mean and mean what you are really saying. You preach against adultery but will look the other way at a man with multiple divorces due to cheating on all his ex-wives. You support a man with years of open lawsuits for alleged rape and sexual assaults, including minors.


    Just admit that you hate black people, instead of drowning out our cries, when you deflect with “All Lives Matter!” If someone were going around slaughtering dogs, and there were television commercials to raise awareness and support, you would not be as non-empathetic and shout “All animals matter!”

    MATTHEW 25:31-40 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, "I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’. “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’. “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (NIV).

  • In America, where a draft-dodging morbidly obese white man with a long history of open lawsuits including fraud, rape and racial discrimination still be elected to the highest office in the land. Trump's primary appeal to white Americans is he's openly racist.

    While racism in other cultures exists based on different ideas of which racial group is superior to another, the United States is a global power, and through movies, mass media, corporate culture, advertising, US-owned manufacturing, military presence, historical colonial relations, missionary work, and other means, white supremacy is circulated globally.

  • In his October 2016 cover story for The Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates explores how mass incarceration has affected African American families. "There's a long history in this country of dealing with problems in the African American community through the criminal justice system," he says in this animated interview. "The enduring view of African Americans in this country is as a race of people who are prone to criminality."

  • Fannie Lou Hamer (1917-1977) was a civil rights activist whose passionate depiction of her own suffering in a racist society helped focus attention on the plight of African-Americans throughout the South. In 1964, working with the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Hamer helped organize the 1964 Freedom Summer African-American voter registration drive in her native Mississippi. At the Democratic National Convention later that year, she was part of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, an integrated group of activists who openly challenged the legality of Mississippi’s all-white, segregated delegation.


    We look back and the life and legacy of civil rights icon Fannie Lou Hamer.

     

    Born Fannie Lou Townsend on October 6, 1917, in Montgomery County, Mississippi. The daughter of sharecroppers, Hamer began working the fields at an early age. Her family struggled financially, and often went hungry.

    Married to Perry “Pap” Hamer in 1944, Fannie Lou continued to work hard just to get by. In the summer of 1962, however, she made a life-changing decision to attend a protest meeting. She met civil rights activists there who were there to encourage African Americans to register to vote. Hamer became active in helping with the voter registration efforts.

    Hamer dedicated her life to the fight for civil rights, working for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). This organization was comprised mostly of African American students who engaged in acts of civil disobedience to fight racial segregation and injustice in the South. These acts often were met with violent responses by angry whites. During the course of her activist career, Hamer was threatened, arrested, beaten, and shot at. But none of these things ever deterred her from her work.In 1964, Hamer helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, which was established in opposition to her state’s all-white delegation to that year’s Democratic convention.

    She brought the civil rights struggle in Mississippi to the attention of the entire nation during a televised session at the convention. The next year, Hamer ran for Congress in Mississippi, but she was unsuccessful in her bid.Along with her political activism, Hamer worked to help the poor and families in need in her Mississippi community.

    She also set up organizations to increase business opportunities for minorities and to provide childcare and other family services. Hamer died of cancer on March 14, 1977, in Mound Bayou, Mississippi.
