Little Children’s MLK Questions

And Jesus said, “let the children come.”

I spoke at a local school today for MLK Day. I couldn’t help thinking about the irony of being sanctioned for saying he was a preacher. The children asked “how did he become a preacher” so I gave the history of five generations of King-Williams legacy preachers, of which Uncle ML is most noted.

NAACP Forsakes Tonya Reaves and Natural Marriage, Favors Reproductive Genocide

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

SPACER
NAACP NOIn the wake of seemingly endless moral debacles such as Planned Parenthood’s slaughter of Tonya Reaves, a young Chicago mother, and Washington’s almost manic stronghold tactics to weaken natural marriage, thousands of African Americans are outraged by the NAACP’s support of abortion and homosexual marriage.

NAACP protests demanding that they support reproductive justice and natural law are mounting. Hundreds of NAACP members have already burned their membership cards in protest of NAACP’s stance on various issues like gay-marriage and their support of and alliance with Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America who is responsible for the charge towards the reproductive genocide of Blacks.

This year we shudder to recall the pain and suffering of the millions of mothers and our dead babies after 40 years of the landmine decision of Roe vs. Wade which made abortion legal in the United States in all nine months of pregnancy. My Great Grandfather, Dr. Adam Daniel Williams pastored Ebenezer Baptist Church for over 25 years and was a founding member of the Georgia NAACP. He and his successors; my Granddaddy M. L. King, Sr., Uncle M. L. King, Jr., and my father A. D. King, Sr. all taught and embraced biblical governance. This means that historically and currently the “King Family Legacy” embraces natural law.

Our bloodline embraces the teachings of Jesus Christ, outlined in the Holy Bible. The Bible is clear on the tenants of natural life, natural marriage and family. The NAACP’s departure from the wisdom and life affirming principles of the Bible is very alarming, and must be confronted to ensure the safety, security and future of our children.

In their book LIFE AT ALL COSTS, I and other Black leaders point out that the NAACP has done little in the recent past to protect and advance the reproductive continuity of Black people in America, and less to support women by offering healthy pregnancy options including pregnancy support groups and adoption.

“In fact, their alliances with Planned Parenthood and the anti-natural marriage lobby helps to ensure that the numbers of African American births continue to be curtailed,” the leaders say.

America is under attack by a three-headed monster, racism, reproductive genocide, and sexual perversion. This monster is destroying America from within. America needs to repent for not shunning the sins of our forefathers.

We need to forgive and receive forgiveness for the harmful, hurtful influences of slavery and subsequent ties to sexism and racism. We need the blood of Jesus to cleanse us and the full armor of God to protect us. I am a spokesperson for the SILENT NO MORE AWARENESS CAMPAIGN; and have received forgiveness and healing for my own abortions.

The NAACP needs to return back to their roots and start fighting for biblical values before they become obsolete. It’s been 150 years since Emancipation was penned. Babies are still not free. Wake up NAACP.

Racism, Slavery, Sexual Immorality and Abortion

Friday, January 4th, 2013

SPACER
Luke 4:18-19
The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Dr. Karen StevensonOur good friend Dr. Karen Stevenson, MD, a pro-life advocate, has written an insightful paper that confirms new views on the connection between racism, slavery, and abortion.

While studying the connection between abortion and slavery, one might wish to consider the research respectfully submitted by those who are determined to get to the bottom of the controversies and shed some light on the issue.

1. Excerpt from Utrum by Dr. Karen Stevenson

“As Kathleen Neal Cleaver states in her review of Dorothy Roberts’ book, Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the meaning of Liberty, “Roberts learned the significance of reproductive autonomy not from the contemporary abortion movement but from studying the histories of slave women who fought to gain control over their lives.”[1] Any treatise that discusses black women and their reproductive freedoms must take into account the impact of these freedoms on the black community as a whole. Thus, any issue germane to African-American women is also crucial to the welfare of the African-American family and by extension, the African-American community.

Abortion benefits African-American women because it allows them to exercise control over their reproductive destinies.

Slave women in America did not have the right to self-determination, and they had no autonomy over their bodies in any way. The profit driven slave economy benefitted tremendously from their toil and their procreative abilities. The slave woman’s children were not her own, and by the whim of her master, they could be sold away from her, never to be seen again. In post Civil War America, there was no further need for black women to procreate. In fact, her ability to procreate no longer served the greater good.”

2. Excerpt from 2013 Message by Dr. Alveda King

“One can’t help but consider if disregard for the value of women and children is still at the root of abortion today. Consider this, many if not all of the women abolitionists should have been the forerunners of the Pro-Life Movement. Instead, we have a counterfeit “Women’s Rights Movement” which supports abortion and harmful contraceptive drugs today. Why in the world, how in the world could this be?

Remember, both women and men were allowed to be involved with the Anti-Slavery act. But, women could only go so far because they couldn’t vote, and many could not own property. Non-African Women and all slaves were actually considered to be chattel or property back then. So, it was hard for white and black women to be involved as abolitionists because white women were treated in very similar manner to African Americans, and most Black women were slaves. Unfortunately, the same thing was happening to the Native American Population. They were all considered to be chattels.

So the frustrated slave women often aborted their babies (Pure Breed and Mulatto) voluntarily as an act against sustaining future oppression. The Angry Caucasian Wives often coerced or forced abortion on their husband’s “Black Beauties” as a means of retaliation against their own brand of experienced oppression.

If you think about it, the same issues are at the heart of the Middle East Conflict. Sarah’s and Hagar’s sons are brothers with Abraham’s seed, yet their bitter battle still rages. My, what a bitter root of judgment in all these situations!

While many women who were abolitionists ended up becoming women rights activists, bitterness caused them to adopt a contraceptives agenda and finally an abortion agenda to exercise what they considered to be rights over their wombs. So now we have a war on babies and the wombs often led by women and men controlled by a desire for revenge and avarice.”

3. Excerpt from Slavery _____ Jealousy of the Slave Mistresses

“It is a fact generally observed in slave societies that the mistress is more cruel in her treatment of slaves than the master. It is a fact confirmed by our chronicles, our folklore, our oral tradition, and travelers. There are on record not two or three, but scores of cases of the cruelty of the senhoras de engenho toward defenseless slaves.”

2013 New Year’s Message by Alveda King

Monday, December 31st, 2012

2013 blog image

In preparing to navigate what may surely be the sometimes invigorating, sometimes dark and murky waters of 2013, let us prepare for war and peace, joy and challenge, love and forgiveness.

The year 2013 will mark several significant landmark anniversaries including 150 years since the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, 100 years since the formation of the Federal Reserve System, 50 years since the MLK I HAVE A DREAM SPEECH, and 40 years of legal abortion in America with the passage of Roe versus Wade. This will surely be a year of transition and there is a need for a deep spiritual awakening.

As we were nearing the end of the complex yet remarkable year of 2012, two anticipated movies emerged. While on the surface these two films appear to be polar opposites they actually have a lot in common. Both films address the atrocities and pending demise of slavery in America. The star studded LINCOLN film by cinematic genius Steven Spielberg garnered high ratings and surely pierced the coldest hearts frozen by the aegis of racism.

The second film, DJANGO by master of gratuitous violence Quentin Tarantino was shockingly offensive in its array of profanity, nudity and blood shedding violence, with popular Black actors Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson and groupie favorite Leonardo DeCaprio is one I generally would never grace the box office with money for a ticket, but surprisingly I’m glad my son offered to take me to see it.

I found LINCOLN to be remarkably refreshing even in the midst of the stoicism and what could have been just another boring historical anal in the tombs of media wannabes. Yet, it wasn’t. There was humor and there was insight, and I learned to love Mrs. Mary Todd Lincoln who has often been misunderstood by historians. This movie came just at the right time in history when a bridge between the disenfranchised of America in the horrible flesh peddling that landed in America in the 17th Century and what inhumanity continues to exist in the 21st Century.

How can this be you might ask? Well, one of the earlier American records of selling humans in exchange for goods and services is noted to have occurred in 1619 when John Rolfe noted in a letter to the Virginia Company Treasurer Edwin Sandys that trade of 20 African slaves would be available for food and supplies. These types of exchange occurred and lasted until the passage of the Slave Trade Act of 1807.

This effort was led by William Wilberforce, William Penn and other European abolitionists. They won the battle to end the sanctioned slave trade over the waters. This Act was followed by the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833, abolishing most legal slavery in the British Empire.

However, these actions in Europe didn’t end slavery in America, because slave owners came up with the brilliant idea, possibly aided by Willie Lynch, to inbreed slaves on American shores since the off shore flesh peddling was curtailed. Thank goodness that the American Abolitionist Movement, inspired by brothers’ and sisters’ success in Europe, was alive and well in America.

Thank God for the American Anti-Slavery Society which started in 1833. The white abolitionists and Black Freedom Fighters were the forerunners of what is known as the Pro-Life Movement of today. People like Susan B. Anthony, William Lloyd Garrison, Arthur Tappen, Lewis Tappen,‏ Fredrick Douglass, John Brown, Wendell Phillips, Lydia Maria Child, Henry Ward Beecher, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Garrett Smith, Elizabeth Stanton, and they had a daughter named Elizabeth Smith, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Calvin Stow understood the sanctity of human existence and that all people were created equal.

Then too, President Lincoln had the courage to fight the battle and gave his life for the cause. The portrayal of Lincoln’s struggles and victories was duly portrayed in LINCOLN. I am grateful.

Now, DJANGO was more vulgar, in your face and disgustingly violent. But remember, so was slavery! For years I have been struggling with how to explain how much the slave masters lusted after the bodies of the Black and beautiful slave women; how the slave masters’ wives and female relatives hated the Black slave women for their beauty and sex appeal; how the Black slave women got beat and brutalized coming and going by the lustful slave masters and their women; and how the Black slave men were castigated and castrated for trying to be men rather than animals and for trying to have families with wives and children. Wow! DJANGO definitely portrayed the violent and inhumane treatment of Black slaves in America.

Now I know that women can hate their husbands’ mistresses, and hate their husbands for having mistresses. We even see that in the Bible with Sarah and Hagar and Abraham. And the same thing happens in every society where there are social class issues and people are taken advantage of by their masters for various inhumane purposes and that type of thing.

But the atrocities of slavery in America just go beyond the pale. All too often there is absolutely no value of human life where sex and money are involved, and that has been the case from the beginning of time, spreading into America’s history; manifesting in the slave trade market and more recently in the abortion market. The things that were done to these unfortunate human beings called slaves is terrible.

One can’t help but consider if disregard for the value of women and children is still at the root of abortion today. Consider this, many if not all of the women abolitionists should have been the forerunners of the Pro-Life Movement. Instead, we have a counterfeit “Women’s Rights Movement” which supports abortion and harmful contraceptive drugs today. Why in the world, how in the world could this be?

Remember, both women and men were allowed to be involved with the Anti-Slavery act. But, women could only go so far because they couldn’t vote, and many could not own property. Non-African Women and all slaves were actually considered to be chattel or property back then. So, it was hard for white and black women to be involved as abolitionists because white women were treated in very similar manner to African Americans, and most Black women were slaves. Unfortunately, the same thing was happening to the Native American Population. They were all considered to be chattels.

So the frustrated slave women often aborted their babies (Pure Breed and Mulatto) voluntarily as an act against sustaining future oppression. The Angry Caucasian Wives often coerced or forced abortion on their husband’s “Black Beauties” as a means of retaliation against their own brand of experienced oppression.

If you think about it, the same issues are at the heart of the Middle East Conflict. Sarah’s and Hagar’s sons are brothers with Abraham’s seed, yet their bitter battle still rages. My, what a bitter root of judgment in all these situations!

While many women who were abolitionists ended up becoming women rights activists, bitterness caused them to adopt a contraceptives agenda and finally an abortion agenda to exercise what they considered to be rights over their wombs. So now we have a war on babies and the wombs often led by women and men controlled by a desire for revenge and avarice.

The movie DJANGO clearly shows the atrocities that Black women had to suffer during slavery. The pain and indignities to the men is clear as well. The film opens two years before the beginning of the Civil War and goes on from there. I’m not recommending that anyone see the film, just telling you that I got an eye opening experience in my seat at the theater.

What connects these two films and makes me want to issue a challenge to Mr. Spielberg, Mr. Tarantino and any other brilliant producers and directors who want to deliver startling and or compelling messages? WHY DON’T YOU MAKE MOVIES THAT SHOW THAT BABAIES ARE TREATED LIKE SLAVES? WHY NOT SHOW WHY RIPPING LITTLE BABIES APART IN THE WOMBS OF THEIR MOTHERS IS BAD????????? HUH?

My friends, it is the beginning of 2013. We are closer to being “free at last,” but we are not yet in the Promised Land. Let 2013 mark a season of enlightenment where change can ignite in every heart. Let this be a time when the reality of the beauty of natural life, natural marriage and natural family will no longer be considered a hopeless dream, but a reality of a promise of Divine Love and Grace.

Even as we consider all of the current arguments regarding human sexuality, we have to consider that all of the cards are not even on the table. In Matthew 19:12, even Jesus explained that some people are born without the natural desire for sex with a woman; some people are castrated so they can’t fulfill sexual desires with a woman; and some choose not to have sex with a woman so that they can serve God better.

In other words, we read in Matthew 19:12 that: “some men are celibate because they were born that way. Others are celibate because they were castrated. Still others have decided to be celibate because of the kingdom of heaven. If anyone can do what you’ve suggested, then he should do it.” (GOD’s Word Translation) Of course being celibate because you don’t desire natural sexuality is different from fornicating. Fornicating, adultery and unnatural

The literal meaning of the word Eunuch in the original languages of the Bible mean: “a man who does not have natural sexual desires or use for a woman.” So, actually some people are born without natural sexual desires at all. And some maybe desire to have sex with someone of their own gender. This doesn’t mean that they have to have unnatural sexual activity though. People won’t die if they don’t have sex at all. That is where being open to Jesus comes in. We all need more enlightenment.

Also, the word Niger isn’t a dirty word. In Acts 13:1 Simeon the Niger was a respected man. The additional “g” to the word Niger made the word “Nigger” and Black slaves from Africa were taught to denigrate that word/name. People become too upset by the word Nigger.

I tell people they can call me Nigger, just remove one g and add Queen in front of Nigger and call me Queen Niger as the word appears in the Bible because a Niger is a royal person. Niger by the way also means “Black” and I add Beautiful to that. In ignorance slavers attempted to denigrate what God made good. Let’s set the record straight.

Friends, we’re dealing with a “three headed monster” – Racism, Reproductive Genocide and Sexual Immorality – all three sustained by a tainted beastly heart.

One of my favorite MLK sermons is REDISCOVERING LOST VALUES. If you study the message, enlightenment will surely come. We all just need to REPENT and learn how to live together as righteous brothers and sisters or perish as fools.

So, let’s pray that everyone can be enlightened in 2013. Let’s pray that we shine the truth in love. My mother once told me that “you can’t clean the house by sweeping the dirt under the rug.”

Well, people are all out of the closet now. Everything is out in the open. Many are wanting to do “his thing,” or “her thing.” Why don’t we just bring everything out in the open in 2013 and take it all to Jesus for a good never lose its power BLOOD WASHING? HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Pray Harder! Run Harder!

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Friends,

My friend Rev. C. L. Bryant just released a new film, Runaway Slave. It’s playing for a limited engagement in theatres around the country. Please go see the movie and tell your friends about it. If it’s not playing near you, please talk to your local theatre and ask them to bring it to their theatre. Just like other movies like October Baby, Fireproof and Courageous were helped become successful films, we can do the same for Runaway Slave.

Here is what my friend Anita Crane said about the film.

Would blacks vote for a white Obama?
Former NAACP leader defies racial politics in new movie, ‘Runaway Slave’

If Barack Obama weren’t black, would most black voters really have reason to support him?

Rev. C.L. Bryant, a former chapter president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, or NAACP, is boldly challenging whether the expanding government programs and progressive ideals espoused by Obama and his allies are actually helpful to black people or whether “the sons and daughters of former slaves traded one form of slavery for yet another.”

“Black people are very uninformed,” Bryant told WND, one of the key reasons he has made “Runaway Slave,” a powerful new movie blowing the lid off racial politics.

Bryant is a descendent of American slaves and Choctaw Indians. He’s also a Baptist minister who resigned from NAACP leadership when they required him to host an event directly violating the commandments of Christ. In Bryant’s film, leaving the NAACP was just one step on his journey away from the slavery of anger and one step towards the truth setting him free.

What, then, is the reaction of blacks who’ve seen “Runaway Slave”?

RUNAWAY SLAVE: A Must See Movie

Monday, July 16th, 2012

My good friend C. L. Bryant’s new movie, RUNAWAY SLAVE, is finally being released on July 27, 2012 in selected theatres.

Here is what they say on their website about the movie:

As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in the summer of 1963, he delivered one of the most powerful speeches in our nation’s history. Known for its famous line, “I have a dream,” Dr. King concluded his speech with these words:

“And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last, free at last! Thank God Almighty, we’re free at last!’”

Now, nearly a half-century later, has his dream become reality? Have we allowed freedom to truly ring? Or has that longed-for freedom somehow become even more elusive?

In RUNAWAY SLAVE, an intriguing new documentary that opens in theaters this summer, Rev. C.L. Bryant journeys across America to find answers. A one-time NAACP local chapter president, Rev. Bryant discovers that by buying into the entitlement mindset of “progressives,” the black community has traded one form of tyranny for another.

Using leading black conservatives as “conductors,” Rev. Bryant believes it is time for a new Underground Railroad to help liberate all Americans from the Government plantation that has left the black community dealing with a new form of slavery: entitlements.

“Why are we still thinking we are not free at last? What ideas are keeping us down?” Rev. Bryant asks. “For too long, we have been depending on other people for our success. We have to pursue our happiness; our happiness is not provided to us. If we are relying on someone else for our wellbeing, that in itself is a form of slavery.”

From our nation’s capital and freedom’s birthplace, to the dens of slavery and Jim Crow, to wherever a light for liberty is shining, this runaway slave looks to bring hope to the oppressed. Among the leaders he talks with along the way are Dr. King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King; former presidential candidate Herman Cain; Congressman Allen West; economist and author Dr. Thomas Sowell; talk-show host and author Glenn Beck; the late Andrew Breitbart. We also meet a new generation of young freedom fighters who are on the front lines of change!

Rev. Bryant’s conclusion? It’s time to run. “Run away from economic slavery. Run toward the blessings of liberty. Let us remain strong in this fight. Run away from socialism; run away from progressivism. And if you get tired, America … run harder!”

This summer, celebrate your freedom by running as fast and as hard as you can to see RUNAWAY SLAVE in theaters.

Here is a wonderful intervew of C. L. Bryant. Enjoy!

My Speech at the World Congress of Families

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

[The speech below is available online here.
Click here to view a video of me giving this speech in Madrid.]

The Culture of Life v. the Culture of Death:
The Greatest Civil Rights Issue of Today

Thank you very much for inviting me and for allowing me to take part in this very important conference. It’s an honor to be here.

Today, I stand before you as part of the greatest civil rights struggle facing the world in the 21st century – the battle to end discrimination against the unborn.

The 20th century battle over skin color and the battle today for the unborn both have profound religious and moral components. At their core, both battle for civil rights. I know this to be true from reason and from painful personal experience.

I was born into the civil rights movement, on January 22, 1951. My uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his brother, my Daddy, the Reverend A.D. King, Uncle M.L.’s right-hand man, were preachers and civil rights warriors. They were often called “the sons of thunder!”

As a girl, I lived under a system of segregation called Jim Crow laws. These laws said that African Americans had to sit on the back of the bus and were treated as “second class citizens.”

Under Jim Crow laws, we could not eat at the same restaurants as whites, stay in the same hotels, or even drink out of the same water fountains. And we did not have the right to vote.

The Jim Crow system of legal segregation was based on a lie – the lie that some people are less human than others.

People were lynched; beaten with clubs and metal pipes; were mauled by dogs.

Playmates of mine died in a Birmingham, Alabama church bombing. My family’s home was firebombed. My Uncle M.L. was gunned down. And my Daddy was found dead in the family swimming pool under suspicious circumstances.

We were considered to be less than human, so our masters could do whatever they wanted to us.

The attitudes toward the unborn put forth by the culture of death today are remarkably similar to the attitudes of racists toward African Americans in the 1950s.

Blacks in the 1950s and babies in the womb today were and are considered to be less than fully human. Both were and are the victims of oppression and violence, but society doesn’t want to recognize, much less confront the oppression and violence. It’s just too unpleasant.

Now, you may have heard that pro-lifers in the United States have been successful in passing state laws that give a pregnant woman the right to view an ultrasound image of her baby before an abortion. The culture of death is opposing these laws with all their might. They know the power of an image.

In 1961, a journalist captured The Freedom Riders, a group of blacks and whites who tested a Supreme Court decision by riding in an integrated bus together traveling through the South, on film. As the bus pulled into Birmingham, Alabama, a mob was waiting to attack the Freedom Riders with clubs, pipes, and whatever else they could find. This photojournalist reported that as soon as someone in the mob saw someone with a camera, the camera was taken from him and smashed.

The oppressors did not want people to see the violence of discrimination.

But America did see. The film in one of the smashed cameras miraculously survived and photos of innocent people being attacked, lying on the ground in their own blood, were printed across the United States. It was a turning point in the campaign for civil rights.

The victims of racism now had faces. They bled. They were human beings. The photos of their plight spoke in ways that words could not.

Then and now, the culture of death tries to make their victims invisible.

Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life in the United States always says, “America will not reject abortion until America sees abortion.”

It’s harder to kill a baby than a blob of tissue. And the culture of death knows this.

The death industry built on the bodies of unborn babies has done a remarkable job of selling itself to the public as a respectable, charitable enterprise. But Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses around the world really fit Jesus’ description of the Pharisees, who were “like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside, but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean.” (Matt 23:27)

That’s the abortion industry!

Not long ago Planned Parenthood offices all across the United States were caught on tape, willingly accepting donations from a man who said he wanted his donation to be used only for the abortion of black babies. He said he wanted to reduce the black population. Not one Planned Parenthood office refused his money. See the global connection?

Even now, reports reveal that abortion clinics in Great Britain are willing to break the law by performing sex selection abortions and giving women abortion request forms that already contain a doctor’s pre-approving signature.

The global culture of death and the culture of racism are working together for a mutual goal.

Consider Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist and a racist and the founder of Planned Parenthood. When she said she wanted more children from the fit and fewer children from the unfit, it didn’t take much imagination to figure out what she meant. I’ll just say that I don’t think she would have wanted me, an African American woman to have more children.

Remember – legal abortion has done to African Americans what the Ku Klux Klan and their fellow racists only dreamed of.

Since 1973, 14 million black babies have been aborted in the United States. That’s one-third of the current number of blacks in the U.S. It’s as if a plague swept through black neighborhoods and killed one of every four people. That plague was real, though, and it came in the form of abortion clinics.

Abortion destroys the physical bodies of God’s tiny children and also destroys the family, including the black family.

The decline in marriage and family isn’t limited to the black community in the United States. It’s happening among every ethnic group and every nation where abortion has broken the bond between mother and child, father and child, and mother and father.

Of the many factors involved in the dramatic decline in two-parent homes, the destruction of children is at the top of the list.

The damage is global.

After two abortions, nearly 40 years ago, I know the emotional devastation, the sense of loss, and the guilt abortion causes. I was the victim of discrimination and the loss of rights in my youth. Then I became the perpetrator of discrimination and the victimizer of my own children in my adulthood.

I allowed myself to believe the culture of death’s lie when Planned Parenthood told me that my baby was just a blob of tissue. I believed the people in the office that day when they told me that everything would be fine.

Everything wasn’t fine. They lied. And I became not just a victimizer, but also a victim of abortion. I stayed a victim for years. But God changed that.

I praise Him for ministries such as Rachel’s Vineyard, and Silent No More Awareness where women like me can finally find healing from the pain of abortion.

Yes, the culture of death sells abortion as the answer to personal problems and societal problems.

Want to go to school? Abort your baby.

Want to have a good job? Terminate your pregnancy.

Feel overwhelmed by your current situation? The abortion clinic will help you.

In the U.S. in the 1960s we were told that legal abortion would reduce child abuse.

Today we’re even being told that abortions are healthier for women than childbirth.

According to the culture of death, abortions help everyone. After all, even the unwanted child would have an unhappy life; it’s for his own good that he be destroyed.

The funny thing is, I’ve never met an unwanted child who would have rather been aborted.

And I’ve never seen a community or a nation thrive that kills its children.

The culture of death has done its sales job in North America, Europe, and Japan. It’s now trying to convince the developing world that the way to health, peace, and prosperity is for it to make abortions freely available.

All lies! Wait until the first generation that stops having children gets old; until the side effects of abortion and related pregnancy prevention methods kill your babies and make mothers sick. Abortion and pregnancy prevention drugs and surgeries take a toll on women’s health; then women have fewer children and become sicker over a period of time.

Remember, people who have been led by the culture of death to choose themselves over their children inevitably face the consequences of that choice.

Abortion doesn’t just kill babies, abortion hurts women and kills nations. Abortion kills the future.

The culture of death, through its spokespersons at Planned Parenthood and the United Nations, is now offering to Africa and South America this future to embrace:

- Legal abortion – so that you can have an education and a career, and so you don’t have to die in childbirth or in an unapproved abortion clinic.

- Singleness – because if you don’t have children, why bother getting married?

- Homosexuality – because no one should be discriminated against (even if compassion says to tell the truth about what the Bible says)

- Women’s Health issues will become worse, with possible connections to breast cancer, cervical cancer, depression and other health related issues.

And, of course, when everything starts to collapse, the culture of death brings in its final recommendation – euthanasia – the ultimate expression of hopelessness.

Yet, there is hope in Jesus!

Uncle M.L. once sat in a Birmingham, Alabama jail, arrested for planning a non-violent demonstration against that city’s segregation policies.

There Uncle M.L. wrote to pastors and other critics; “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

He knew and was experiencing the injustice of discrimination and its impact on blacks. Today, we know and experience discrimination’s deadly impact on invisible, unwanted babies in the womb. Making African Americans equal under the law must have seemed as far away to Uncle M.L. in that jail cell as making unborn babies equal under the law does to us in this room today.

But he had a dream…

The culture of death is self-focused.

The culture of life is Christ focused.

The culture of death has lots of money and media behind it.

We have the truth.

We must love and help our neighbors, our brothers and sisters in countries from around the world to live and not die.

Friends, the right to be born is the ultimate civil right. Without life, no other rights exist.

The culture of death is dying. Those close to extinction wail loudest.

Now is the time to stand for life and preach the truth in love.

Love never fails.

African American Leaders Decry NAACP Endorsement of Homosexual Agenda, Say Issue also Linked to Abortion

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“Neither my great-grandfather an NAACP founder, my grandfather Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. an NAACP leader, my father Rev. A. D. Williams King, nor my uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. embraced the homosexual agenda that the current NAACP is attempting to label as a civil rights agenda,” said Dr. Alveda C. King, founder of King for America and Pastoral Associate for Priests for Life.

In the 21st Century, the anti-traditional marriage community is in league with the anti-life community, and together with the NAACP and other sympathizers, they are seeking a world where homosexual marriage and abortion will supposedly set the captives free,” King added.

“Many Black people are realizing just how far off the mark the NAACP is with regard to the real issues and the most important problems facing the black community,” said Dr. Day Gardner, founder of the National Black Prolife Union. “The NAACP organization was founded by blacks who had an understanding and strong faith in God. They were people—pastors and congregations who knew that the Bible—which is God’s final word—was indeed very clear on the immorality and wages of homosexuality and abortion. It is appalling that this one time super hero ‘civil rights’ organization supports the breakdown of traditional marriage and the ruthless killing of our unborn children–as a civil right,” Gardner said. “In its decision to please the world, the NAACP has turned its back on the things of GOD, therefore, we must encourage those who know the truth to speak out–to stand firmly on the solid rock—to not look to the right or to the left. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said: Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter,” said Gardner.

Pastor Stephen Broden, Pastor of Fair Park Bible Fellowship in Dallas, TX said, The black community is suffering from soaring unemployment, an extraordinarily high rate of abortions, a high school drop out rate among black teenagers that is breathtaking, an exploding rate of single parent households and the decimation of black families–yet, the NAACP is making statements about same sex marriage. The NAACP has proven again to be an irrelevant organization as it relates to issues of survival for the black community.

King, Gardner and Broden are all authors in a new book LIFE AT ALL COSTS which addresses issues such as abortion and homosexuality. Other authors of the book write compelling articles on the subject:

“The homosexual community is demanding that their lifestyle be legitimized and viewed by society as a lifestyle that is right. We are subjected to the distasteful alignment of homosexuality with the “Civil Rights Movement and with the argument that gay rights should be guaranteed under the Constitution. These two issues are incompatible.” Rev. Clenard Childress, www.blackgenocide.org.

“My community seems to have more churches than any other community in America, described as “most religious,” but by their vote support the most anti-Christian agenda in the history of this nation, including the abortion and homosexual agenda.” Elder Levon Yuille, Pastor of The Bible Church, Ypsilanti, MI and founder of The National Black Prolife Congress.

Agreeing with Dr. Alveda King, the leaders further express concerns that the abortion agenda and the homosexual agenda are aligned.

“As a person who values human life, I feel very troubled that the youngest of our communities are not guaranteed the opportunity to have their day in the sun. As I speak to churches over half the states in America and abroad, I have seen people weep as they are confronted with the horrors of this holocaust. Still, the destruction continues.” Dr. Johnny Hunter, National Director of LEARN.

The issue of gay or homosexual marriage has divided the black community, with many religious leaders opposing it. In California, exit polls showed about 70 percent of blacks opposed same-sex marriage in 2008.
