Virginia Black Pastors target Romney with racist religious brochure for Obama

Just when you think that you may have seen it all, this time it is black racism which rears its ugly head to target Romney’s religion with hate literature. It has been reported that a group of African American pastors in Virginia have aligned themselves with the same politics of hate and revenge that Obama called for on Friday in a campaign stop in Ohio.

The pastors, who have formed a group called, “Greater Hampton Roads Christian Leadership Conference,” have decided to use deception and racism to scare their parishioners to vote for president Obama.  They developed a brochure to compare Obama’s alleged religious practices with their lies and misconception of what Mitt Romney’s Mormon beliefs are.

The lies and innuendos are obviously false on their face, but the true point is that these pastors and their leader Rev. Lin Hill had no intention on presenting the truth.  In fact, if they had done the same amount of research that a fifth grader would have been expected to do, the truth would have been easy to find.

Rev. Lin’s purpose was apparently darker, more sinister in design, because by waiting until the last minute to circulate 100,000 copies of  his amateurish literature, he hoped to push black voters to the polls through hate. So this religious leader of the 2,500 member Bethany Baptist Church in Chesapeake, Va., circulated a lie, which is against his own Christian faith.

The only reasonable conclusion that can be conferred on his conduct is that he studied his theology of hate and lies from the same gospel book of Obama’s own religious mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright who told his congregation in 2003,  “God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America!”

One has to ask, is this the shepherd of God that Rev. Lin is following and wants to emulate?  If so, it is indeed tragic that he and his fellow ministers would denigrate their hallowed office of the church.  How can their parishioners seriously consider these fallen men of the cloth true followers of the teachings of Christ, when they find solace in spreading rumors of hate and racism against another human being?  Is their commitment to hate and division so important to their politics of supporting  Obama, to throw their commitment to God under the bus?

America has come to expect this type of behavior from president Obama.  His campaign has been riddled with advertisements which bombarded the nation’s living rooms with character assassination attack ads against Mitt Romney.  Last Friday, America witnessed Obama calling out in frustration and desperation to rally his supporters to go to the polls with revenge and hate in their hearts.  Gold star from Satan for Obama.

But, why did Rev. Lin and the others sink to the Chicago-style gutter level of Obama’s brand of politics?  It appears that it was easy, it was convenient and Rev. Lin, like Obama, did not care to present the truth, when a lie would serve their purpose.

What are the parishioners of his church and the black 100,000 voters in the Chesapeake, Va., suppose to think?  Do they feel it is perfectly acceptable to accept the practices of vile deceit instead of religious truth from their leaders of faith?  One would think and hope not.  Truth is the only acceptable behavior that must be presented to their flocks of God.  Only followers of Satan would embrace a lie over the truth and deceit over honesty.

The outcome of the presidential race shall soon be a memory in the annuals of political campaigns, but the callous deceitful practices of this collection of misguided pastors should be resolved.  The Mormon Church and Mitt Romney deserve better from these alleged pastors of faith.

They should have taken a cue from the highly admired international evangelist Rev. Billy Graham.  He does not regard Romney’s faith a cult, because it is not.  In fact, the majority of the evangelical leaders and members of the Christian faith have followed Rev. Graham’s lead.

The deceptive practices of  the likes of Rev. Lin and his circle of pastor supporters should serve as a warning sign for America.  Nearly, fifty years ago, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. offered the nation a universal teaching based upon the religious foundation of brotherhood, love, fellowship and mutual honesty.

Fifty years ago, Mitt Romney’s father, then Governor of Michigan worked with religious leaders and civil rights leaders to stand up for freedom for all of God’s people.  He walked in civil rights marches with Rev. King.  Yes, he was a Mormon and he was a follower of Jesus Christ.  And yes, Rev. Lin you could have been more of a leader of the church in standing up for truth, but you chose a darker path.

Now it is up to the leaders of your congregation and of the community that your church resides in to determine if they would rather keep a follower of  Satan-type deception or choose a true leader of faith.

This election and its results will melt into history but If America is to be a great nation that is built on the solid rock of religious brotherhood, then its religious  leaders must have impeccable character. Unfortunately, Rev. Lin and his fallen fellow pastors have shown that there religious character is a deplorable disappointment.  They owe their flocks and God an apology, before they resign.
