I was recently asked to support the upcoming “Faith and Blue” efforts. I sat through the launch presentation, but after careful review cannot endorse it. While I heard many good things from the organizer, his familiarity with Black Lives Matter (the BLM) concerns me.
From the BLM website, “What We Believe” tab, they are based on 2 stories. Those stories (Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown) were both tried in the American justice system. In both cases the evidence was overwhelming that the criminal acts of the deceased led to their own deaths. To declare different is intentionally misleading.
Just as the KKK didn’t accept American Justice in 1865 (or since), neither does the BLM. The KKK wants their ideologies established; democracy be damned. The BLM wants their ideologies established; democracy be damned.
Here are some of the BLM quoted ideologies from their website;
… all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression…
We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.
We … dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women …
We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another…
We foster a queer‐affirming network … with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual…
Think About it
Does anyone read their stuff? The stated ideologies of the BLM are a direct affront to the principles of morality. Immorality gets us into trouble, not out of it.
The BLM tears down statues, paints memorials and disrespects the accomplishments of anyone who doesn’t ascribe to their ideologies. They have no tolerance for pluralism, the very thing they claim to be fighting for.
Many anarchistic organizations attempt to align themselves with God; the Nazis, the KKK, Al Qaeda and now the BLM. But their ideologies always reflect something far more sinister.
Just as my decrial of the KKK doesn’t mean I hate white people, neither does my decrial of the BLM mean I hate black people. I hate evil and decry its every form.
Our country must continue to change for the better. Churches and law-enforcement must work together towards that as we stand together for morality.
