Black Christians can think for themselves #BlackFaithVoters
Washington, DC – The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans, says that they do not want the Democratic Party to include them as part of their coalition anymore. We are not a part of their coalition, neither are we a part of the Republican coalition. The last election proved that Black Faith Voters decided to not support the historic Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
There has been ample evidence of the unethical practice of the Democratic Party prior to Donna Brazile’s book. Now that we know how the Democratic Party operates, Church leaders from around the country are demanding that the Democratic Party does not include the Black Church as a part of their coalition, because we are not anymore.
Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative, says, “During the last election, we put out for all to see that Black Faith Voters will vote their moral conscious and will not under any circumstances going forward, vote for the Democratic ticket just because they are Democrats. We believe that Democrats and Republicans are morally reprehensible in every sense of the word. Harvey Weinstein, who was one of the Democratic primary funders, abused countless women under the banner of the Democratic party. Hillary and former President Obama said nothing about it. We will have none of that, neither will we be associated with the homosexual who ran Hillary’s campaign, Robby Mook.”
We are not a part of any party’s Democratic or Republican coalition, we vote on our own after we have evaluated each political party’s position on issues that are deemed critical to us. Those issues are: education, housing, the economy, regulatory reform, tax reform, civil rights and other affinity issues that we would identify.
Robby Mook does not in any way, and never will in any way, speak on behalf of the Black Church.
We do not want anything to do with the Democratic or gay community. We do not share their politics, we do not share their thoughts, we have nothing in common, and neither are we Republicans, but we love them all in Christ. No gay person is ever going to speak for the Black Church. The Black Church will speak for the Black Church.
According to Donna Brazile, a party insider and Chair of the DNC during the Clinton second run for the presidency. Hillary Clinton controlled every facet of the DNC. We thought that was unethical because the system was rigged and stacked against any other candidate. We will not be party to that type of unethical practice. Hillary Clinton did not control the Black Church and neither does Robby Mook, speaking on behalf of her, have anything to do with the Black Church. That is why many voted against her. This is the last time we are telling the DNC not to use the Black Church as a part of your historic coalition. Next time we will take public actions concerning this matter.
