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! 👍😉
