Michelle Bachmann has a preacher problem
Where's Fox News
Two men who hate
The Reverend Right Bishop Eddie Long has settled the sexual cases against him. The case involved four young men who alleged that Long coerced them into sexual situations during their teens. At the time Long vowed to fight the allegations because they were untrue, but today, he settled. What a hypocrite. Lets get something straight, I believe that Bishop Long is a sexual predator. He also happens to like young boys.
The fact is the most African Americans who vote go to church. Another fact is that Bishop Long and his parishioners fought vehemently for a sanctity of marriage bill in Georgia. His supporters on his marches were Berniece King, that is right, Dr. Martin Luther King’s daughter. Coretta Scott King was eulogized in his church. Her stand on gay and lesbian rights was clear and led the head of the NAACP to protest the funeral.
Here is what the Right Reverend had to say about those very rights according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, “It is the most unattractive thing I have ever seen, when I see women wearing uniforms that men would wear, and women fighting to get in the military!" Long shouted to his congregation then. "The woman gets perverted to turn towards woman … and everybody knows it's dangerous to enter an exit…God says you deserve death.” He would know.
Now Bishop Long is exposed. He has settled a case that most African-Americans in the church wanted him to fight, but the worst part of this settlement is we will never hear these young men tell what happened to them. The case seems to be sealed and the lawyers are not talking. What is Reverend Long hiding.
No one knows who Bradlee Dean is but everyone knows his girl pal, Michele Bachmann. Bradlee Dean is the preacher who gave an invocation at the Minnesota Legislature. He offended the legislature and they had someone else come and do the prayer because he intimated that the President was not Christian. The Minnesota Legislature is known for having prayers that all-inclusive.
However, that is not the worst of Dean’s insults. He believes that being gay is illegal and that all gays are molesters. He thinks they should all be put in jail. He also rails against blacks and Jews, but I have not seen his face on Fox News. Remember the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. You will see Bachmann and Dean if you go to the Jamboree 2011. Dean is a drummer in a Christian metal band. It appears that they have been friends for quite some time.
These guys preach hate for your fellow man. The problem with Long is that black people will forgive him simply because he is black. The problem with Dean is that he fits right into that Tea Party bag. Long will be forgiven because he is black and Dean will be forgiven because he professes to be a Christian. Both of these men of the cloth have no place in civil conversations because of the hate they espouse.However, you let the President go to a church where the preacher talks about black people being mistreated—which they were—and he hates white people and is a racist. I would love to hear what Fox News has to say about these two. When will the right get rid of hate so that we can have a civil conversation on the rights of all people
