Friends, this is absolutely unbelievable, but most likely very true… Sad to say… Some people really believe that because I was very supportive of my friend Mr. Herman Cain when he was running for president, and now I’m off the political scene, that I was helping Mr. Cain because he is Black.

If I was going to support a candidate because of skin color, I would have been on President Obama’s campaign team. I think everyone knows I was not a part of the Obama candidacy. Nothing personal, Mr. President, I just don’t agree with your policies that support the Planned Parenthood agenda.

Listen friends, I am no longer political. Period. During the 2008 elections, some may recall that I endorsed Governor Sam Brownback, and I helped Governor Mike Huckabee during his run. Then, while praying, I received a“word” that I was to stop endorsing and to start praying. So, I left the political train and started praying.

During Mr. Cain’s campaign, I was more visible because Mr. Cain is a friend. I never endorsed him as a candidate, I just supported him as a friend. Since by his own testimony, Mr. Cain is not a politician, I found no conflict in helping a friend who wasn’t a politician try to bring some solutions to America’s problems. I have great respect for Mr. and Mrs. Cain, and it was an honor to stand with them as a friend at such a pivotal moment in their lives. Now, once again, I’m off the political scene, and only entered that arena briefly this season to help out a friend. As to voting, we must all vote pro-life. Period.

As to racism and skin color, skin color is like window dressing, with the house being the spirit and soul of the person. The body is temporal, the spirit and soul are not. So, we are one human race, and skin color is part of our earthly ethnic ID. We fight too much over skin color.

Acts 17:26 says “And (God) has made of one blood all nations of people to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed.” So why are we as one human race fighting about skin color so much? It is a trick of the devil, people. So let’s move ahead to brotherly and sisterly love why don’t we?

My uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: “Love is the most durable power in the world. This creative force, so beautifully exemplified in the life of our Christ, is the most potent instrument available in (hu)mankind’s quest for peace and security.”

Jesus says it best in Matthew 22:36-40 : “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

So let’s put the race and racism card to rest, and be one human race in love with each other God’s way, why don’t we?

Choose your candidate but make sure he’s Pro-Life, pinky swear?
