An Open Letter To The Black Church Community

Bishop E. W. Jackson Sr.
October – November 2010
Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ:

Please consider prayerfully what you are about to read. I write to you not as a Bishop representing my churches or in behalf of any political party, but as a fellow Christian. I take sole responsibility for what is written here.

As Christians we seek to obey Jesus Christ and His Word. Therefore we strongly oppose abortion as an abominable sin against God and humanity. No true Christian can support poisoning a child in the womb, stabbing him or her in the back of the head or tearing an unborn child limb from limb and tossing the body parts into the trash. That is abortion in all its evil and ugliness, and we as Christians must oppose it.

For the black church community however, the sin is all the more monstrous. Abortion was pioneered by racist Margaret Sanger – founder of Planned Parenthood – and the eugenics movement to limit the population of black Americans and others they deemed undesirable. Even now, forty percent (40%) of the children aborted in America belong to black mothers. Therefore Planned Parenthood is nothing less than an instrument of genocide against black people in this country and around the world.

As Christians we are also against homosexuality and same sex marriage. God does not hate homosexuals and neither do we, but we stand with God in condemning the sin. Sadly, there is major effort through media, entertainment, universities and even public schools to indoctrinate our children to believe that Christians are bigots and haters simply because we accept the truth of God’s Word. There is also a major effort to allow the open practice of homosexuality in the military, which would drive Christians out, unless they are willing to renounce God’s word and accept homosexuality as normal and appropriate.

Again, this issue has even more profound implications for the black community. Homosexual activists have likened themselves to black people in our struggle for civil rights. Comparing the history of Americans of African descent with the attempts to gain acceptance for homosexual behavior is an insult to every black person in this country. Our ancestors spent 246 years in slavery, and then experienced another 100 years of Jim Crow segregation in the South where they were legally denied equality and human dignity. Skin color alone defined their status in life for nearly 350 years. They were enslaved, beaten, lynched and treated as property. To equate our painful history with the demands of homosexuals to marry and have their lifestyle approved shows immense arrogance and disrespect for what our ancestors endured before freedom. Nothing in the experience of homosexuals can be compared to it, and their attempt to do so is a perverse and racist exploitation of black Americans.

As difficult as it may be, we must now face a reality which we have sought to avoid. Our eyes have been closed to it because it forces us out of our comfort zone. The Democrat Party, which black Christians unquestioningly support, is the champion for abortion. It is the Party of Margaret Sanger’s racist plan to kill black children before they are born. The Democrat Party takes abortion blood money from Planned Parenthood, and provides tax dollars to help kill unborn babies. It is an ugly reality, but the time has come for us to face it! The Party to which our churches have given unbridled loyalty for forty years supports the systematic genocide of our children at a rate of about 500,000 per year. The body parts of black babies are flung across the country with murderous abandon and we – the black church community – have voted for the people who implement the laws and policies which end in the annihilation of our unborn children.

The Democrat Party is also the champion of the abomination of homosexuality and same sex marriage. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for rampant homosexuality, but thousands of years later, Democrats carry on that spirit of rebellion against God. They want to teach our children that homosexuality is virtuous, and use the public schools and the power of government to force its acceptance. Every poll makes clear that the black church community is overwhelmingly opposed. In California, black Christians voted 70% in support of Proposition 8, a Constitutional Amendment defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Yet those same Christians voted for Democrats who supported Prop 8. How long will we halt between two opinions?

Black Christians vote monolithically for the party that promotes the very opposite of what the Bible teaches. The Word says choose life, and we have chosen death. We have an unholy alliance with the Party that has embraced child genocide. By doing so we despise God just as Eli did when he refused to stand against his sons’ defilement of the temple. Fifty million babies have been killed over the last 37 years. Approximately twenty million of them have been black. If the blood of Abel cried out to God from the ground, how much more the blood of innocent unborn children?

Democrats are pushing homosexuality, including a plan to “re-educate” Christians in the military to renounce their commitment to the Biblical view of same sex relationships. If we continue to vote for those who support policies which defy God, we will answer for it. Perhaps we are answering for it now with poverty, gangs, youth murders, unwed pregnancy, drug addiction, family breakdown and black men in prison at astronomical rates. Perhaps instead of blaming the system, we should be asking what we are sowing. When we sow the wind, we reap the world-wind. The Democrat Party has become the golden calf to which black Christians bow, and is nothing less than the seed of the black community’s destruction.

I was raised a Democrat. My father was a Democrat. What most black Americans do not know is that Democrats were against the Civil Rights legislation of the 1960’s. Without Republican support, the civil rights acts could not have passed when they did. Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican because for 100 years the Republican Party fought for the rights of black Americans. Republicans in Congress sponsored civil rights legislation in 1866, 1871, 1875, and 1957. The Dyer Anti-Lynching Bill in 1918 was sponsored by Republicans and opposed by Democrats. Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans were the party of civil rights and economic opportunity. Democrats were the party of the KKK.

The point here is not to get you to register Republican, but to realize that no political party should receive unquestioning support based on the past. Parties change with time and history. The primary question which we as God’s people must ask is, “Does this candidate or this political party represent my Christian values?” Or to put it another way, “Will God be pleased with my support of this candidate or party?” When one considers that to support the Democrat Party is to support a pro-death and pro-homosexual platform, the answer must be, “NO!”

Christian principle is what matters, not political party. The time has come to stop giving Democrats the black vote as if they were sent by God when in fact they usually represent an anti-Christian viewpoint and ungodly policies. Keep this in mind as you vote on November 2, 2010 and for every election hereafter. Voting is a sacred trust. Offer it to God as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to Him as your reasonable service. Vote your Christian values, not race or party. For example, in the 4th Congressional District race in Virginia the Republican – Randy Forbes – is a man who loves the Lord, loves people and fights for all his constituents, regardless of race. His Democrat opponent is an atheist. Black Pastors will not allow the Democrat to speak in their churches, but many black Christians will vote for a God-hating atheist Democrat over a God-fearing Republican. My brothers and sisters, this is an abomination in the sight of God.

We will not experience the best God has for our community or our country until we as Christians give our first allegiance to the Lord who shed His precious blood to save us. We must reflect His truth in every dimension of life – including the voting booth. I have written as a fellow Christian who wants to see the church be the church, not a tool of the godless. Jesus said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” I have told you the truth. Only in accepting it can we be free. The choice is yours. The key to prosperity is not the Democrat Party, but the favor of God. He opens doors and no one can close them. May our lives, including our choices in the voting booth, be pleasing in His sight. Then we will be blessed beyond measure. I trust that God has spoken to your heart, and that you will not be a mere hearer of the Word, but a doer also.

Yours in Christ,
Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr.
