Pastor Uses Church Sign To Accuse Trump Voters Of Mental Illness And Racism

A Baptist pastor put up a church sign that said a black vote for Trump is mental illness and a white vote is racism

Birmingham, AL – A Baptist pastor is taking criticism after displaying a sign at his church that compared voting for Donald Trump to mental illness and racism.

The sign on one side read, “A black vote for Trump is mental illness.”

On the flip side of the sign it read, “A white vote for Trump is pure racism.”

“God motivates me to take a stand for what’s right,” said Michael Jordan, the pastor of the New Era Baptist Church, according to WTVM. “Read the Bible. And look in the White House. If they’re calling me a racist, look in the White House. … When you vote for Donald Trump, you are supporting institutionalized racism.”

Jordan, who is black, said he intended to send a message to white and black voters.

Daxton Kirk is a white Trump supporter and told WTVM he didn’t approve of the sign. Kirk told WTVM 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.”

Kirk also said he had complained to City Hall officials to see if they could take action over the sign.

In 2018, Jordan used the church’s signage to post a message that said, “Black folks need to stay out of white churches,” according to the Washington Post. Jordan posted that message after a suburban megachurch had planned to open another church in Birmingham as part of an effort to reduce crime.

Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin, a Democrat, criticized the 2018 sign, according to the Washington Post.

Under IRS rules enacted by congress in 1987, churches could lose their tax-exempt status for making political statements.

Not sure what this has to do with Blue Lives Matter seems it seems strictly political. It would probably be better if it were posted elsewhere.

God is NOT a racist like the sign in this article would have people believe nor is our President. If only the Blacks would see they have more in common with Republicans than with Democrats. Republicans voted to abolish slavery. Democrats opposed it Republicans gave blacks the right to vote. Democrats opposed it *The 1st 22 blacks elected to the U.S. House were ALL Republicans Republicans passed the 1964 civil rights act. The Democrats opposed it. The 1st black Republican was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1871. The 1st black Democrat wasn't elected to the U.S Senate until 1999 Wilmington, NC: In 1898 Race Riot by Southern Democrats who later passed laws designed to limit the voting rights of African Americans. Martin Luther King Sr was a Republican Martin Luther King Jr was an Indepedent The KKK operated as a paramilitary wing of the Democrat party post-Civil War south. Their enemy: Republican and black politicians. Senator Robert Byrd 1959-2010 was NOT a Republican but he was a former member of the KKK and Democrats loved him Joe Biden eulogized a KKK Kleagle at his funeral 9 years ago. Most Republicans are PRO-LIFE MOST DEMOCRATS ARE PRO-CHOICE.

There was once a Jewish carpenter from the wrong side of the tracks who was told He didn’t represent the correct narrative when he spoke in the temples, and engaged with those who weren’t considered a part of a respectable demographic. For this He was arrested, tortured and given the death penalty. To incorporate His image with the type of divisive, destructive, race-baiting degeneracy described in this story is breathtaking in its arrogance. I am the worlds worst Christian. If the blasphemy is apparent to me, it should - upon personal reflection - scare the hell out of those responsible. I often horse around in these comments, but not now. This makes me physically ill, but I am glad the site featured it. I’m happy I found this site and I like the people who visit. Great job! 👍😉

Pastor Jordan, yea want to see what real racisim and mental illness is, look real hard in a mirror! I'm sure after you stare at it awhile, a f##king light bulb will go off in your head. I know how hard that sh#t is on your mind, but it really is worth a good long stare! God Speed sir! You're going to need it!

Pastor Jordan is sliding toward losing his tax exemption.......churches are suppose to be non political! Keep to teaching the word of God and leave the slanderous rhetoric to the warped minds of politicians like Sanders, Butt-head, Warren, Deblasio, Booker, and Harris.....a few more!

Pastor Jordan, who talked a lot of hyperbole to get the votes from the Black Community and then forgotten you until the next election? Democrats. Who supported slavery and Jim Crowe? Democrats. Who has made significant progress to improve employment for the Black and Hispanic Community - while improving the economy? President Trump. Who has worked to change the Judicial System to help the Black Community? President Trump. Pastor Jordan, God is not confused but it might be time for you to lead your congregation through one tough and honest question, "Do the Democrats really care about the Black Community?" I will not tell you that every Republican is perfect - but I believe that most stand with open arms.

Ythese vhurches are political organizations. Their tax exempt status should have been removed years ago. They are nothing more than leaches.

Their only concern is the collections so they don't have to actually work for a living.

Look at the snowflakes go crazy!! I personally agree with the ‘no open carry’ policy; good for all. I carry concealed and nobody is aware; that’s the point of “concealed”. aka: Hidden. Since my firearm is concealed the snowflakes are mellow and I don’t present myself as a target to any bad guys. If I’m in Joann Fabrics and a bad guy with a gun comes in I will just leave and let all you snowflakes take care of yourself!😁

Well, if this "Church" could lose their IRS status, then GET ON THE BALL! They are not only guilty of breaking a federal IRS law, they are guilty as hell concerning racism. This "pastor" is a JERK.

Every black vote for Trump moves that person a step closer to leaving the the Democrat plantation. That must be why democrats are for open borders, got to replace those lost votes with a new dependency class. Think about it. 🤔

Racist Pig Pastor Jordan needs to read the Bible.

"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another."

Interesting to say the least. All you can do is laugh at this point. Some can say whatever that's on their agenda at any particular time without any repercussions while others, from the fear of being labeled, don't or can't express their thoughts. It's been a double standard for awhile now.

I have never seen anything racist from Trump. If he had ever said or done something racist at any point in his life we would have seen it in viral news videos a 100,000,000 times by now! So where do these people get it from? I have a theory. They are racist against white people.

I believe publicly supporting a candidate means they should lose their 503c status as a church. They should no longer be tax exempt. That sign could cost them a boat load of money

The Reverend would be surprised to know that God is on no one’s side. Those are his own opinions expressed on his signage through free will. What he is doing is stirring the pot of racism- the haves/have not’s into a fever pitch. And when the anger breaks loose, who’s in the middle? Law enforcement. And they can’t take sides either, except to take out the violent amongst the crowd and get home safe. So when you see race baiting like that, and think that it doesn’t pertain to you, just remember, you don’t know how many of your neighbors and co-workers are listening to it and buying into it. You maybe in the place when the anger breaks loose and you need LEO’s.

Preacher seems to be racist himself. Racism is discrimination and we all discriminate against something; lack of education, overweight people, ugly people, beautiful people, rich people, poor people. It depends on your position at the time.

This preacher is in fear of losing his flock (tithing) which is similar to politicians and other race hustlers.

This evil, lying, segregationist, so called "pastor" posted the following on his sign - "Black folks need to stay out of white churches". Search images of him and he looks angry and menacing and there are photos of his sign messages. His statements with his signs many times are directly opposite from bedrock Christian principals.

Going to this church and listening to this Pastor who buys into the Plantation mentality of the Democrats towards African-Americans, isn't an illness, it's plain insanity.

The Pastor of this Church is the REAL RACIST and mentally unstable. His church is control by the Devil. He doesn't believe anything about God except himself. Beware of false prophets.

Government needs to check out these churches on their tax exempt status. Also check out the pastor's, preachers and deacons as they be filled with racist. The Catholic Church are all pedophile so why couldn't other churches be racist? Ever since we put Obuma in office 14 yrs ago this country has gone in reverse and we all know that he is ISIS backer. Hell we should check his taxes to see where his money is going?
