Democrats Do Not Worship God by Akindele Akinyemi
Oftentimes, I receive phone calls from my Democratic colleagues that I am dead wrong on the fact that you cannot be a conservative and be Democrat at the same time.
I never said you could not be both. However, I always wonder if you call yourself a Christian or have conservative values but believe in a free market society, against abortion, for educational options, against same sex marriages and promote wealth creation then why are you a Democrat to begin with?
For instance, I have met so many people who are conservative in their viewpoints but support Gov. Granholm for Governor. When I ask them to give me reasons why they are supporting Jennifer Granholm against Dick DeVos they cannot tell me or give me a straight answer. They just say they don't trust DeVos but yet they are supporting a woman who is contradicting their personal values.
And if your personal values and biblical lifestyle are so important and it affects the way you vote then why are you voting for a party that contradicts your value system?
I mean a person going to Word of Faith, Family Victory Fellowship or World Changers and who believes in the full word of God is considered a conservative. However, the rest of the week they are liberal in their mindset. They do the exact opposite Monday-Saturday but Sunday they want to be conservative. Everyone wants to be a Republican 11:00 AM on Sunday morning. But at 2:00PM on Sunday it's back to being a Democrat.
This sounds like confusion. Why not practice a conservative lifestyle everyday. You will live longer compared to living a liberal lifestyle.
I mean if we are going to be conservative everyday shouldn't Black people be part of a political establishment that supports their views and support their value system?
If Black people are going to support the value system of the Democrats by supporting same sex marriage, abortion, poverty, having sex with everyone, broken marriages, broken relationships, failing public schools, socialism and welfare then that's the party you should be in. After all, racism and victimhood is very present in the Democratic Party more so than the Republican Party. I'm not saying that some people in the Republican Party is not racist because that would be absurd. But it is a known fact that the Democrats use the race card as a means of control over Black people. Liberal churches in our community welcomes gays and lesbians into their church families when this is unbiblical.
And I think those people who run for office in Detroit like State Representative, State Senator and City Council should not be afraid to run as a Republican if your biblical values means the world to you. If you continue to place the Democratic Party over God to get elected then that is no good for you because when it's time to vote on issues that contradict your personal values then you have to ask yourself: which God am I serving?
The truth of the matter is most of us are on the wrong side to begin with. If you are conservative and trying to live according to biblical principles then you should consider being Republican.
Most Democrats do not believe in following the One True Living God. If they did they would not love living in poverty, embrace victimhood, racism, sexism, being uneducated and worship many idols next to the One True Living God.
This is unbiblical, unethical and just plain wrong. Period.
