A Refreshing Testimony from a Childhood TV Personality

My reaction to Bill O’Reilly’s comments on race problem on America Live

I can’t believe I am agreeing with President Obama and Bill O’Reilly on the same blog but in this situation they both said something I agree with.

For the record, while I don’t agree with many of President Obama’s policies, such as his support of rabid Planned Parenthood, I do agree that it is past time for the “racism conversation.” On the other hand, although I also don’t always agree with everything that Mr. O’Reilly says, I do agree that we need to strengthen the American family which also includes the African American family.

Of course the conversation regarding racism needs to include dialogue that we are all one race, one human race, created of one blood. (see Acts 17:26) My famous uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said “we must learn to live together as brothers (and sisters) or perish as fools.” If we are one race with varying ethnic distinctions, then we can stop fighting and exercise brotherly and sisterly, “humanly” love.

We also need to understand that racism stems from hatred, not love. Racism is evil personified. We must work hard to overcome evil with good. God is love and God is good, so we can overcome racism with agape love. We must pray now for transformation of human hearts and replace the hatred with the love of Christ. Again, God is Love.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8 (NIV)

So, we need to bring people closer to God if we are to minimize racism.

As for strengthening the African American family and indeed the human family, we as parents, yes parents, plural, need to teach our children and grandchildren how to live moral, righteous lives. Of course parents, men and women, mothers and fathers are created equal but are assigned different life roles. So as parents, each has a role to play in the raising of our children. Statistics have shown that children raised in single-parent households have a higher poverty rate, more criminal behavior, higher unemployment, higher school dropout rate. This is why the sanctity of life and the sanctity of natural marriage are both so very important and interrelated.

Each parent, the mother or father, has different things to teach their children. Things that are important for the well-being of the children.

Does that mean that there aren’t times when single-parent households will occur? No, sometimes they occur due to death, or spousal abuse, or lack of moral instruction or understanding, or a number of other reasons. Yet they should not occur so frequently that they become the norm.

“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” ESV 2001

Please allow me to share a story from Naturally Moi of a child star who has shared an inspiring testimony that can serve as a roadmap for our young women.

In the midst of all of the controversy regarding Trayvon Martin, the Texas sanctity of life battle, and so many other boiler point issues, it is so very refreshing to hear this testimony from one of my favorite television childhood personalities.

Tamera Mowry-Housley who once starred in the popular Sister Sister TV series with her twin sister Tia but recently surprised her co-stars and fans by revealing she has only had sex with one person in her life.
Mowry recently told her The Real panel members that she didn’t lose her virginity six years ago when she was 29-years-old.

“I don’t know how to explain this. I’m religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity,” she insisted.

She also explained that she regretted losing her virginity before marriage so much that she decided to wait until she married three years later to engage in sexual intercourse again.

“You may not understand this but I did it (had sex). Then I became celibate until I got married.”
In 2011, Tamera married Fox News Correspondent Adam Housley after they had dated for almost six years.

Before Housley, the Sister Sister star dated Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

Last November, Mowry and Adam had their first son, Aden.

While Tamera considers herself to be religious and conservative, she says that she’s “far from boring in the bedroom.”

Tamera’s perspective is one that far too many young people are missing these days, saving exciting sex for the marriage bed. Such a plan could lead to far less heartbreak, STDS and abortions.

“42″ Stirs the Heart and the Conscience

Friday, April 19th, 2013

three headed monster

While I’m often accused of finding Pro-Life messages behind every tree, it can’t be denied that “42″ brings an inherent message of courage, compassion and composure that prevailed in the lives of Jackie and Rae Robinson as well as Dodgers Manager Branch Rickey. These same principles are needed so much in the ongoing heated moral debates of our time.

While the skin color/racism devil is somewhat subdued today, it still rears its ugly head. Then we are also contending with moral questions surrounding the sanctity of natural life and marriage. This “three headed monster” of racism, anti-procreative liberty and sexual perversion has crept into our lives with the intent of leading us further astray.

This is why the movie 42 is so inspiring; and the themes of racial unity, nonviolence, marital fidelity and Christianity are so very refreshing. They apply to our present day struggles; while they stir our hearts and rouse our conscience.

Today, we are fraught with unjust laws such as legal abortion – the killing of human babies in the womb. Where is the justice for the babies?

Uncle M. L., Jackie and Rae Robinson and Branch Rickey challenged the immoral unwritten laws of their day. We cannot afford to do less in Century 21. Uncle M. L. once said “a just law squares with the law of God.”

God’s Word is God’s law. The Bible charges us to love each other, and that law transcends human efforts to redesign God’s plan for continuity.

Jackie Robinson left the Dodgers the year after Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat in Montgomery. Yet that wasn’t the end of the baseball great’s mission to advance civil rights. He became a statesman and defender of my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I know that Robinson was a super ball player and Rickey was a phenomenal businessman. But they were so much more than that. They dealt with the human issues if their day.

The movie 42 has heart. We could all learn a lot from their examples of courage, composure and compassion.

God’s Rejoining, Restoring, Rebuilding, Reviving Grace

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Benny Hinn Remarried“But ‘God made them male and female’ from the beginning of creation. ‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’ Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.” (Mark 10:6-9 NLT)

Friends, I am absolutely overjoyed by the Benny and Suzanne Hinn remarriage. Dry bones can live. Restoration of Holy Matrimony will blossom. Godly relationships among families too! Oh the Blood of Jesus. Power of Holy Ghost. Praise be to GOD. Thank you JESUS!

It’s not just about the marriage of the famous celebrities, Benny and Suzanne Hinn. We rejoice because God is healing marriage. Let us pray for all natural godly marriages between one man and one woman.

Natural marriage between one man and one woman is a sacred institution ordered by God as the means of fulfilling God’s command to be fruitful and multiply. Any other definition of marriage goes against God’s design.

Let’s pray that the remarriage of Benny and Suzanne Hinn will, as evangelist Reinhard Bonnke said, heal and restore millions of broken marriages.

Please take a moment to read about this blessing.

Evangelist Benny Hinn and his ex-wife Suzanne were remarried on Sunday after being divorced since 2011.

The Hinns’ divorce was widely reported and represented the latest of several high-profile Christian leaders who have recently divorced. Pastor Jack Hayford, Suzanne’s father Roy Harthern and evangelist Reinhard Bonnke repeatedly referred to the significance of the Hinns’ remarriage, calling it miraculous.

“This is too wonderful,” Bonnke told the crowd, noting that this miracle of remarriage was even greater than the miracle of any marriage. “I see a river of the balm of Gilead flowing to millions of broken marriages.” He said he believes those marriages will be restored as a result.

Challenge the NAACP and other leaders who are betraying the Black Community



Calling all churches and community activists to protest the leadership of the National NAACP and other community leaders including the CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS, THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS, and THE ADMINISTRATION for failure to represent the health and wellbeing of the Black community.

This year people of God in churches and community groups will be praying and fasting regarding sin based issues ranging from abortion, traditional marriage, destruction of the black family and the extraordinarily high incarceration rate of black men.

Too many are silent in the face of betrayal and loss. Some are IN BED WITH big money organizations and corporations whose aim is to NEGATIVELY impact the physical and spiritual health of Black America, including the PUSHING of alcohol, cigarettes, dangerous pharmaceuticals, abortion, etc. They have FAILED to address high unemployment in Black America, the high rate of incarceration of Black males, the high school dropouts, the extraordinarily high number and rate of abortions in the Black community, and the lack of marriage among mothers and fathers.

People in high seats of authority know the truth and are refusing to act on it.  They are supporting:


  • The racist agenda of Planned Parenthood
  • The reproductive genocide of over 20 million Black children
  • The violation of the civil rights of children in the womb
  • The dismantling of Holy Matrimony
  • The promotion of homosexual  marriage
  • They know that Black Women are dying from abortions and

Harmful DEPO (Depo- Provera) shots and are doing NOTHING ABOUT IT.

Heading Into The Holidays

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Dear Friends, this week we will celebrate an American Tradition, Thanksgiving Day. It is a time to set aside the daily rush and routines and give thanks to God for all that He does for us. We should enjoy time with friends, family, or maybe even just alone with God. Right after Thanksgiving comes Christmas, the time to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Of course, we should thank God every day and also celebrate Jesus every day. So as we approach these days, let’s just remain thankful, and remember to pray for human dignity and the right to be born and die a natural death. God bless you.

For all who serve you in public office,

That we may lead peaceful lives.

We intercede for those in the offices of

President of the United States,

In the Congressional Black Caucus,

And in federal, state, county and local offices.

The Spirit of truth and life,

The Spirit of repentance and conversion,

The Spirit of courage and grace;

Let peace and love abound,

For ourselves and for those holding political offices.

May we be instruments of Your Holy Spirit

And witnesses of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In which alone we find hope for our nation and the world.

We ask this in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
