Houston church – No Tithes No Funeral Policy – Refuses to bury 93 year old member

Houston church refuse to bury a member because of lapsed tithes

Houston church refuses to bury 93 year old member for tithing lapse due to illness Just like businesses try to get the last ounce of blood out of their employees, just like the Plutocracy extract most of the disposable income from the middle class, the church is following suit. This is a sad and bizarre story reported by PimpPreacher.com. Mrs. Olivia Blair was a member of Fourth Missionary Baptist Church for decades. In fact the church buried her husband six years ago. Mrs. Blair was sick for the last two years. She sadly past away recently. Her daughter, Barbara Day visited the church with the expectation of organizing Mrs. Blair's funeral.

Walter F. Houston held an obvious grudge against Mother Olivia Blair. A grudge rooted in what he felt were delinquent … [Read more...]

Celebrating Thanksgiving & Christmas? Here are questions you should think about.

Thanksgiving Christmas Hanukah

Thanksgiving is approaching fast. As we all prepare to gorge ourselves on food and shop as we are pre-programmed to do around this time of the year, we must pause. We must exhale. What does Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah, and other end of year celebrations really mean? For those that are anathema to religion, the shopping, partying, and other activities are simply an exercise in tradition. The holidays have been coopted just because. These end of year activities are like decompressors. One can be festive for a little more than a month after spending eleven months captive to work, school, or just the reality of life. One allows oneself to live in a beautiful fantasy, a fantasy that emulates the Santa Claus of past. For those that are religious one wonders what the end of the year holidays have become to them. The same festive motif of the secular is exercised by the religious. There are however many moral questions that they would likely be uncomfortable asking. Would Native Americans support what … [Read more...]

Watch George Stephanopoulos attempt to justify Darren Wilson’s killing of Michael Brown with softball leading interview (VIDEO)

Darren-Wilson George Stephanopoulos

Darren Wilson giving many softballs and lead ins by George Stephanopoulos Darren Wilson's first interview was a godsend for him. The interview was a sham. There were many holes in the story that George Stephanopoulos allowed to slide by with no push back. The interview starts with George  Stephanopoulos  attempting to justify Darren Wilson's  killing of Michael  Brown with a softball leading  interview . Wilson claimed he politely asked Michael Brown and his friend to move over from the center of the street. Does anyone believe Wilson was really polite when he approached Michael Brown?  Dorian Johnson, Michael Brown's friend said Wilson used an expletive as he shouted at them from his car. Darren Wilson claims that punches started flying. The pictures reveal no real injuries. If as Wilson said in his grand jury testimony he believed Michael Brown could have been armed it makes no sense that he would have left his car chasing Michael Brown. Michael Brown was a tall fat man. Darren Wilson a tall … [Read more...]

Many speak out on my KPFT Radio show on grand jury’s non-indictment of Darren Wilson (VIDEO)

KPFT Politics Done Right on Darren Wilson

Many Americans question Darren Wilson's non-indictment Last night I was going to be discussing my piece "The MayDay SuperPAC: A Lesson in Failure" that was also republished by Common Dreams last week on my KPFT radio show Politics Done Right. As my show started, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch was giving his news conference. I continued to listen as I did the show. It became obvious he was acting as Darren Wilson's defense attorney in front of the grand jury.  Many of my listeners had many points of view but share some very human commonalities. The discourse was frank bit civil. Listen to it and please comment. … [Read more...]

Darren Wilson’s ‘injury’ photos. What do they really show?

Darren Wilson injury

Here are the photos that were released of  Warren Wilson, the police officer that executed Michael Brown. This along with his testimony where he compared Michael Brown to a demon made it much less likely he would possibly be indicted. He simply needed to dehumanize Michael Brown to cauterize in the juror's minds many of their own preconceived notions. The Michael Brown autopsy illustrated that it surely wasn't Michael Brown who was a demon. Wilson benefited from not writing a police report as required that described the event. This allowed him to testify relative to publicly available testimonies. Is this really justice? The family of Michael Brown did not stand a chance of getting an indictment for the execution of their son. It is time for Americans to wake up to the reality that the law gives many the benefit of the doubt even as it dehumanizes many of its most aggrieved citizens. Officer Wilson is a killer. Below is the face of a killer. Continued demonization of Michael Brown will not change that. … [Read more...]

Watch Rudy Giuliani slammed by Michael Eric Dyson for racist comments (VIDEO)

Rudy Giuliani slammed by Michael Eric Dyson for racist comments

Rudy Giuliani inner racist sentiment exposed  Rudy Giuliani allowed his inner prejudice to reign on Meet The Press with Chuck Todd. Professor Michael Eric Dyson did not allow him to get away with it. He pointed out the false equivalency. Unfortunately Professor Michael Eric Dyson did not have the full complement of facts to debunk the false equivalence of Giuliani's comments. "We are talking about the significant exception," said Rudy Giuliani about the killing of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson. "Ninety-three percent of Blacks are killed by other Blacks. I would like to see the attention paid to that that you are paying to this." Rudy Giuliani needs an education in reality. Both he and Michael Eric Dyson needed to have read Matthew Yglesias' piece titled "White-on-white murder in America is out of control" the false equivalency busting reality and context. Yet the disturbing truth, according to the FBI's most recent homicide statistics, is that the United States is in the wake of an epidemic … [Read more...]

Watch Rachel Maddow expose ‘hidden’ Republican report debunking Benghazi conspiracy (VIDEO)

Rachel Maddow, Benghazi

Rachel Maddow exposes GOP Benghazi hyprocrisy Rachel Maddow exposed Republican hypocrisy on the supposedly Benghazi conspiracy. Who can forget their hyperventilation on the manufactured Benghazi scandal they have been trying to sell for over a year. Shortly after the Benghazi terrorist attack where Ambassador Christopher Stevens was murdered, Fox News and the Republican Party have been hyping and politicizing the event. Early on, author of “The Generals”,Thomas Rick said that much in a Fox News Interview where he called out the network. Fox News simply cut the interview short and continued with the uncorroborated hyping of the Benghazi massacre. Most networks put the Benghazi story in perspective for some time. Fox News’ persistence seemed to have paid off recently when ABC’s Jonathan Karl claimed to have an exclusive that made it seem the State Department was more instrumental than it was in altering the Benghazi talking points. Rachel Maddow did not allow the GOP to get away with it. She reported … [Read more...]

The MayDay SuperPAC: A Lesson in Failure

Lawrence Lessig Mayday

  Lawrence Lessig’s MAYDAY.US (MAYDAY) was an ambitious project. It exploded onto the scene with a mission to change the direction of the electoral process. Their website lists a four step process by which this would occur: Create a SuperPAC to support candidates who favor reform. Win a majority in Congress in 2016 based on lessons learned in the 2014 election. Get Congress to pass and the President to sign election reform in 2017. Push for a constitutional amendment to secure the reforms. Many organizations have been working on the corrosive nature of money in politics pre and post Citizens United. (Concern about money in politics predates Citizen United, is well documented, and already has defined solutions.) The newcomer MAYDAY received traditional mainstream media coverage these other organizations could only dream of. That media coverage assured that MAYDAY’s SuperPAC coffers would be filled. After all, a message to clean up politics sells, and a well-advertised message sells … [Read more...]
