'Tis the Season to Celebrate Jesus, Not ObamaBy Lloyd Marcus
While minding my own business reading e-mails, I was included among numerous recipients receiving a holiday greeting e-mail from a dear black relative. The e-mail reminded us that the holidays are a great time to be "thankful for" the "blessing" of having Obama as president. The e-mail oozed with syrupy, over-the-top praise of Obama, including his (and I quote) "room-lighting" smile.
Remarkably ill-informed and distorted, the e-mail listed every item of Obama's hostile takeover of our country as a blessing to be "thankful for."
Fighting my gag reflex and not wanting to make waves, I was about to simply delete the absurd propaganda e-mail. However, an earlier phone conversation with my 83-year-old dad led me to decide to respond to the liberal bull-crap.
Dad, Dr./Rev. Lloyd Marcus Sr., has always been a great source of wisdom and inspiration for me. As we chatted over the phone, I thought, "Wow, at 83, Dad is as sharp and bright as ever."
"Jesus said we are the salt of the earth. But if the salt has lost its savor, it is useless," said Dad. Dad also quoted the scripture about letting your light shine rather than hiding it.
Liberals freely spout their rhetoric as if it were gospel, while conservatives tend to be careful, non-confrontational, and low-key about their beliefs. And still, conservatives are branded by liberals as pushy and intolerant.
I thought, "My relative chose to include me as a recipient of her 'Obama is just below Jesus' holiday greeting e-mail." I know the truth about Obama. Thus, it is my duty to share that truth. America is under attack by an evil enemy within. Patriots must be salt and light, boldly standing up for truth and righteousness.
There are several issues I could have shared to explain why Obama is bad for America. However, since my relative is a Christian, I thought it wise to inform her of Obama's policies which do not align with her Christian values.
I sent my response via "reply all" so everyone on her list would receive it. Prayerfully, at least one person on her list will see the light. Here is my reply.
I received a speedy reply to the above e-mail from my Obama-loving relative. Amazingly, she and her liberal friends who also replied totally ignored every point I made about Obama. My relative accused me of being offensive and of spouting Republican talking points. Her liberal friends were annoyed with me. Their consensus was along the lines of "how dare you disagree?"
Typically liberal: they feel free to send me unsolicited liberal crap. But if I reply with a conservative point of view, I am a jerk. Still, I believe, by faith, that my "salting" made a difference. Someone on my relative's list will be compelled to seek the truth.
My relative's response is typical of blacks emotionally seduced by Obama. Though as a Christian she would never admit it and may not even realize it, I believe my relative's blind loyalty to Obama is rooted in her suppressed "black racism."
Encouragingly, there are a growing number of black Christians awakening from their Obama trance; they are no longer able to justify sacrificing godly principles for loyalty to skin color. It is critical that white conservatives not be intimidated and black conservatives continue sharing the truth with black America.
