Black Vote For Trump is Mental Illness says Alabama Church

“A Black Vote For Trump Is Mental Illness” reads a sign at New Era Church in Birmingham, Alabama.  The reverse side says “A White Vote For Trump Is Pure Racism.”

“God motivates me to take a stand for what’s right,” [Pastor] Jordan told the local station, adding: “Read the Bible and look in the White House. If they call me a racist, look in the White House.” |TheHill.com

“Read the Bible”? Heh.  So much for love thy neighbor as thyself.  What the Bible says:

Matthew 22:37-40

[37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [38] This is the first and great commandment. [39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Matthew 5:43-48

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

John 13:35

By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

Sounds like the good Pastor skipped these sections.  Maybe he should try re-reading the Bible before preaching the Gospel to others.

His partitioners agree,

Daxton Kirk, a local Trump supporter, told the station that people “should not be able to come into a building and feel like you are hated or diversified just because you came here to worship the Lord.”

Daxton is right.

According to the Bible, God actually hates “those who sow discord among brothers.” (Proverbs 6:19.)

This sign has gone viral, with mixed reactions, because of course.  It’s 2019 and all the world knows is discord among brothers.  It would do us all well to love our neighbors a little more.
