Frederick Douglas Told the Truth

Frederick Douglas told the truth.  This is the soil that the Southern Baptist Church was planted in, and the root from which it still springs today.  We are headed for destruction as  a nation, and not because of drugs or gay rights or abortion.  These are the gnats.

The sins of this nation are GREED, PRIDE, ARROGANCE, and LACK OF CONCERN FOR THE POOR.  The sins of this nation are the same today as they were in the 1850s, 1920s, 1950s, and the biggest source of all this sin IS the WHITE CHRISTIAN CULTURE.  Why, I know women and children who were personally absolutely betrayed by this culture, and will agree that patriarchy is off the chain, who still hate gay people and think that God is upset over abortion in spite of the fact that the Bible never rails about either particular issue.  However, WAR and EXILE came down on the Jewish people because of GREED, PRIDE, ARROGANCE, and OPPRESSION OF THE POOR AND NEEDY.

Yet no one is preaching against these things. In fact, they court people who live by these values, as they are the ones with all the money that can give the preachers also the live of ease they want.  I agree with Frederick Douglas:

"[B]etween the [slave-holding religion of] Christianity of this land, and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference — so wide, that to receive the one as good, pure, and holy, is of necessity to reject the other as bad, corrupt, and wicked. To be the friend of the one, is of necessity to be the enemy of the other."


  1. So are you consider yourself a Christian?

  2. As an atheist I agree with your sentiments. I agree that Christianity is the cause of much evil in the world, slavery being but one. But your post is confusing. Your "about me" talks well of this superstition, yet your post curses it.

  3. Oh yes, I am a believer in God, whom I grew up knowing as Jesus. While Christians would not claim me as one of their own, I know and experience the love of God.

    Frederick Douglas, also a Christian.
