Random Political Thoughts –


constitution

Wonder if people will take notice ….. pray… get involved in regards to what is going on in the world today- The political processes have just run a “muck” and SOME of the American People, have been so hypnotized by President Obama either having a great deal of “swag” ( which I cannot stand that term in reference to a world leader ) or they are STILL happy because a black man is in the White House –

With so many people out of work……homelessness, drugs, murder, inflation, military scandals etc… it is even a wonder that America still has a leg to stand on and REMAIN RESPECTED from other world leaders within NATO – (seriously) Italy, United Kingdom to name a few are to say the least……”loosley” have our country’s back as the votes have shown this week. I wonder WHY President Obama has been the ONLY U.S. President who have NOT shown any loyalty to Israel? He has proven to be Muslim when “it is convenient” and has proven to be Christian when “it is convenient” for the last few years.

Trust me, with a black man being in the White House in 2008 until present is INDEED huge news. Nonetheless, it is as huge as what he does during his two terms in office…. Just like a quarterback is only as good as his “line protects” him – nose tackle etc.

When things do not go the way the president wants, he blames CONGRESS and when things do not go the way congress wants, they blame THE PRESIDENT. I mean, when is America going to realize that every department is needed to effectively run a country even if the president is CHECKERBOARD!  ( F.Y.I. but being black is not enough to run a country! )

Praying that when AMERICA “eventually goes to war with Syria”…….our homeland soil can remain to be protected — After September 11th and with it also fast approaching – I am a bit worried – but Thank goodness = PRAYER still works.

Church vs. State


Church conversations and little talks were a tad bit on my nerves – people do not understand the difference between CHURCH and STATE and I have been really seeing that over the last 5 years. However, it is merely the CHURCH that has a HIGH LACK OF KNOWLEDGE about politics….

Yes…… I MAY BE A HISTORY AND POLITICAL JUNKIE – but overall most black churches are not involved intellectually like “they should”….

The problem of church and state has to do with institutions and the spheres of action that are appropriate for each. Here the concept of separation is valid. The government does not appoint bishops and pastors for the churches. Churches, meaning here all religious organizations, do not appoint presidents, governors, and judges. No religion can be favored over others or supported by taxes.

So can we STOP with the OBAMA foolishness! WE THE PEOPLE voted a regular man into office to run a WHOLE country and not a PASTOR to run the country…. There is a difference – seriously.

The state has no role or authority in defining beliefs relating to God and worship. The free exercise of religion is to be guaranteed. The state is neutral between particular religions and permits citizens to believe or not believe in God and to engage or not engage in religious practices or belong to religious organizations according to the dictates of their conscience.

There is no religious test for holding office……………….. If it was a criteria… AMERICA would surely be in big trouble!! Yikes.

Is religion one of many activities that deserves protection so that other interests are equally important in the eyes of the law? Or does it deserve
special consideration so that its claims outweigh all others? If the former, our ultimate loyalties and our relationship to God may be demeaned and set aside for lesser values. Yet religion may be the sponsor of what is bigoted, heinous, reprehensible, or even trivial.

How can we protect religious liberty as a precious right and at the same time avoid  its misguided, destructive, immoral, and hateful manifestations? To put it differently, society has a set of laws and practices regarding justice, medical practice, morality, decency and many other things.

When religious beliefs and practices are in conflict with what society has deemed necessary or important for the health and welfare of its citizens or
to guard their civil rights, what trumps what? How serious a breach of religious freedom can be tolerated for the sake of making secular law applicable to everyone? How reprehensible must an act be to eliminate its practice in the name of freedom of religion? Should individuals be allowed to discriminate in the name of religion against blacks or homosexuals or unmarried persons of the opposite sex where their own property or private prerogatives are concerned while a public institution should not? How do we distinguish between private and public in these cases?

How are we to weigh civil rights against freedom of religion? To shift the focus, is religious conviction merely an example of human subjective preference which we can change by another choice, or is it a transcendent objective demand that claims our allegiance in a compelling way so that we  have no choice but to be obedient to it?

The Constitution specifically names freedom of religion as a protected right. How much weight does it therefore have in relation to conflicting claims? I am just so over everytime I put on the news someone is trying to take GOD off of something….. No one is stating to take His name off of money!

Let me touch briefly on a subject that is still with us.  It involves a proposal by President George W. Bush. The issue of government support for  faith-based human services is  full of complications, dangers, ambiguities, and subtleties. The beauty of religiously-oriented social ministries is the potential for dealing with people as whole selves, i. e., giving them food for the soul as well as for the body. But this very unity poses the problem of how it is
Constitutionally permissible for the government to enable the providing of secular bread without funding sectarian religion.

If, on the other hand, the delivery of goods and services to the needy is totally divorced  from the religious dimension, in what meaningful sense is it any longer faith-based, apart from merely being sponsored by a religious group? Why shouldn’t the government fund a church soup kitchen if all that is dispensed is soup? Because, we say, what the church would spend on soup can now be spent on  the church bus. But maybe they would just serve more soup. Maybe the soup itself is a  witness to the faith behind it, but if it is, is that not a sponsorship of religion?

Would the government discriminate against some religious groups? But that is a matter of administrative practice not of Constitutional principle. What is a religious group? What  does faith-based mean? Can we think our way through this thicket without falling into confusion?

IM DONE……………… ugghhhh

Obama and The Black Community


image

Okay…..

I dont get why the black community is JUST NOW noticing that the current president does not step up AND follow through on sensitive issues. This has been this current Presidents style sadly….. He acts soo timid about certain topics it is reallllllly embarrassing.. Welp….no one makes a big deal unless things like Trayvon Martin happens……

I mean you have people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson loving their opportunity to be at the forefront of another media opportunity…GEESH….

I mean..via Trayvon Martin……..trust me I am saddened to hear about another black kid being killed but why get mad at President Obama now!!!!!?????

There are TONS of other issues that Obama has failed to speak out on since he has been in that Oval Office…. The president has always seemed a tad SLOW speaking up for legislation that wont get him votes.

His quiet political correctness has had his popularity ratings so low that it makes you think that Ronald Reagan and George W Bush is back in office!

Oh goodness…..I hope that the black community would study…learn…understand…..support….participate in the political process REGARDLESS if the Commander in Chief is black….rwd…white or yellow!

Stop expecting President Obama to be the great saviour or the great black knight to save all black peoples issues…

He is not God…. He scared to speak…He gets stressed and shows how unsure he is over certain things by what he does and dont do as well..

Obama wont get re elected….I would be sooooooooo shocked if this great speaking……jelly back….cool…black…man did.

Speaking well is great but it takes more than being a great speaker to successfully rin a country….Especially a mega power country….

Sad thing is that if Pres Obama does not win the next presidential election that a lottttttt of blacks will go BACK to not caring about politics…

So sad….but it is soooo true! Also what is wrong with producer Spike Lee needing attention like a child?

Spike Lee tweeting an address is yet another mess….. Geesh….

He is a celebrity and would be crying if I tweeted his address and posted pics of where his kids go to school right! What Spike Lee did was wrong regardless if it was Zimmermans address or not.

Well Spike may just be trying to find new ways to stay revelant because Tyler Perry has the whole spotlight via black producers.

Spike does not understand that in success you take turns!

Oh my black people makes me scratch my head for the concern via the lack of soo many silly things that my people do.

Lord help…..Goodness..
