The controversial sign put on display outside the New Era Baptist Church reads on one side, “A black vote for Trump is mental illness.” The other side of the sign displays another message: “A white vote for Trump is pure racism.”
Michael Jordan, the pastor of the local church, told WZDX that he put the sign up hoping it would encourage people to choose a name other than Trump on their ballots next year.
Daxton Kirk, a local Trump supporter, told the station that people “should not be able to come into a building and feel like you are hated or diversified just because you came here to worship the Lord.”
Kirk told the local station that he has reached out to the town’s City Hall to see if local officials can take action on the sign.
The pastor even defends his hateful and racist message saying, “God motivates me to take a stand for what’s right. Read the Bible and look in the White House. If they call me a racist, look in the White House. When you vote for Donald Trump, you are supporting institutionalized racism.”
This pastor needs to take some time to read the Bible for himself and see what Jesus said about judging. I’m not arguing that the Bible says not to judge anyone because it does numerous times. But God tells us not to judge hypocritically and to not judge by appearance but make right judgment.
When this pastor automatically calls every Trump supporter a racist, he’s violating the Lord’s prescription for judging. I’ve NEVER been able to get a solid reply from anyone who says that Trump is a racist.
The most recent thing they try to claim is telling the “Squad” to go back to their countries and fix them. Which, in the full context wasn’t racist at all.
