Obama’s Spiritual Advisor: “Christians Cowering to A Wave of Hate”

Former Obama campaign aide and spiritual advisor to BHO took to The Daily Beast yesterday to sound off on Christians; condemning them for not sounding off enough after the Charlottesville protests.

“A wave of hatred is threatening to crash on this country. It is a seismic crash of historic proportions. And some of the most prominent Christian voices in the nation are standing by, watching their own people drown in the growing flood.”

DuBois cited White Nationalists’ desires to “take America back” as their reasons for voting for Trump:

“If anyone was unsure before, after Charlottesville we should all now know exactly what “take our country back” means. It means back to a place where whites have continued superiority in every part of American life. Back to a place where Blacks, Jews, Latinos, Asians, and immigrants, Muslims, women, gays and more live in relative subjugation. The haters have spoken and they are clear. What is not clear is the position of many Christian leaders, especially in the white (and even some in the Latino) Evangelical church.”

Despite this statement from the President:

DuBois claims evangelical Christians have been “silent”. He claims that Christians have been blissfully ignorant of the atrocities in Charlottesville. He claims pastors, activists and authors are fearful about taking a stand against White Supremacy; that well-known Christian pastors and authors are afraid to touch this topic and are playing things safe by not saying anything at all. He says we as Christians, must “choose” what we stand for. The way we combat this? Here are a few suggestions:

“In the case of what we just saw in Charlottesville, it means sermon series on the dangers of white supremacy, the reality of privilege, and the importance of empathy for those who do not look like you. It means using podcasts and books and voices to lift up morality and condemn immorality, whether that immortality is found in the streets of Charlottesville or the Oval Office of the White House.”<It means consistently leveraging public platforms and private leadership to define what is right and wrong. It even means admitting with humility that they don't know what to do, but know they should do something, and then showing an openness to take action. "

As far as white evangelical Christians being silent go, I beg to differ:

Those are just some declarations from some of my favorite Christian authors who came out publicly against bigotry and hatred. I am certain there are more. What the alt-right/”white power” supporters do not understand is that their statement as “Christians” is hypocritical at best. DuBois, on the other hand, is fueling the “spiritual” fire with a spirit of division which drives a bigger wedge of hate between both parties.

As a Christian, I know the push-back I receive when I say that I am a Conservative Christian. I am automatically clumped into a box because of my political affiliation and my religious beliefs. We, as Christians, are blessed with the liberty to “choose” what we stand for in this country but what most normal, God-loving Christians “stand for” gets us all clumped into the convenient little box of the left’s. I have personally been shunned by college friends because of my faith. Our collective love of God is openly mocked more than any other religious faith in this country. Our love of life and passion for protecting the innocent gets passed off as being “fascist” and our reverence and patriotism gets categorized as “supremacy” and “bigotry” thanks to a few crazies who have severely misinterpreted doctrine along the way. When Trump and his staff are seen praying one day or a few cabinet members meet for a Bible study, they are called out as “what is wrong with this country” and “leading America back to supremacy”. We can’t win for losing.

As a Christian, I will not cower. I will not be hateful. But I will be the first to say that I think Neo-Nazis are the biggest idiots on this Earth as they are dumbing down the Christian faith as they have lost key concepts of their professed “faith” along the way. The same can be said for the various jackalopes of “The Resistance”. The “fighters” of the Resistance are so Godless that they take matters into their own hands and rely on people in this world to give them every thing and make them happy. No wonder they are so hateful and unhappy! The truth is, we, as Christians, would be condemned no matter what we said in the hours during and following Charlottesville. Regardless of the stance we take, our liberal friends have already made up their minds about us Believers in Christ. What they don’t see is Christians who are not “cowering” in a “wave of hate” but going bravely before God, holding hands of our brothers and sisters of all races and cultural backgrounds and praying for resolution, understanding and peace. But to them, praying to our “invisible” God isn’t enough and it is ineffective and translated as “silence”…unless we use their given political bullet points in writings and sermons, of course.

Jesus Christ did not say, “Go into all the world and tell the world that it is quite right”-C.S. Lewis

We can point fingers all we want…but we all are far from quite right.

    Too late. Already happened. That’s why we voted for Trump.

    Oh, bollocks.

    It means using podcasts and books and voices to lift up morality and condemn immorality

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! That is RICH coming from a leftist! ESPECIALLY one associated with the 0bama administration! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! … *breathe* … HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!

    The truth is, we, as Christians, would be condemned no matter what we said in the hours during and following Charlottesville.

    Exactly right. No matter what we do, or who we denounce, we will be persecuted by those who desire to see God in the dumpster of history. (Don’t they realize he won’t fit?)
    Why should I have to denounce those people? They aren’t Christians. I will let them know – when I encounter them – they should not continue to trade on the name of my savior, as they deny Him and His word. But, honestly, if you think those folks (the racial supremacists) are actually Christians, then nothing I say will convince you of the truth, anyway.

    This supposed Christian pastor would do well to separate his politics from his faith. That is, he should found his faith on scripture and the truth about God, then let that inform his politics, and not the other way around. He might manage to learn something important about God in the process.
