Black News Rejects Commentary of Dr. Martin L. Kings Letter From Birmingham Jail
MONTCLAIR, NJ, June 16, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- The suppression and blatant censorship of the Judeo-Christian perspective should alarm the Black Community especially due to liberal extremist encroaching tentacles attempting to control Black media. Rev. Clenard H. Childress Jr.'s article, The Church in America has Forgotten,
is a commentary and reflection of civil rights champion Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King while incarcerated in Birmingham during the civil rights protest in May of 1963. Rev Childress points to abortion and the gay agenda as contrary to the Judeo-Christian ethic that Dr. Martin Luther King espoused. Rev Dr. Martin Luther King equated the suppression of Christian values the same practice that communist nations exercised in their occupied nations. "…If I lived in a communist country today where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I believe I would openly advocate disobeying these anti-religious laws..." Black PR News
found this to be unacceptable and refused to print the commentary. In response, Black PR News
"This column is a sermon with your personal doctrinal beliefs, and we have received many complaints in the past about distributing such material."
"This obviously exposes a deliberate agenda to silence opposing minority voices who have opposing views to abortion and homosexuality," stated Rev. Clenard H. Childress Jr., President of Metro Clergy for Better Choices and creator of the website BlackGenocide.org
. "Their reasons are absurd. I make it my business to be respectful and empirical. This article holds true to those principles. Commentary always reflects the 'belief system' of the commenter."
"The facts are not pretty but nevertheless they need to be known so we all can make informed and conscientious choices," stated John Tomicki, President of the League of American Families. "There is no reason for this other than pressure from radical liberal supporters of the abortion and homosexual activism who need Afro-American media to portray their movement as 'a civil right.' Donnie McClurkin was barred from singing at a dedication for Dr. King in Washington DC because of his ex-gay claims, how sad."
"I have said it repeatedly, to supporters of abortion," stated Rev. Childress Jr., "it's intellectually dishonest to claim a right for yourself and in so doing take away the right of somebody else. To the idea that homosexuality and lesbianism is a civil right, you do not give civil rights to sexual orientation due to the fact their orientation could be flawed. It is clear that liberal media along with abortion and gay lobbyists go to great lengths to keep key information away from the Afro-American community."
