- The Black Gay Community is pointing to Bishop Long's "hypocrisy" over his anti-gay statements and his anti-gay marriage stand. They wish to 'take a critic out' so that everyone sees the consequences of hypocrisy. How these events justify "Gay Marriage" I still don't see.
- The Black Secular Progressives are using this scandal to point out how Black Christians are being duped to support 'conservative' policies that are against their interests. The B.S.P. want to have them worship at the alter of government instead
- The Black Anti-Prosperity Preaching Christians use this occasion to showcase the pitfalls of the message that they believe compromises the true spirit of Christianity and how such a large church can lead to idologry
- The Blacks who see Religion and Culture as a valuable agent of social order.
We need to put certain people on blast by going beyond any sort of praise for them as "champions of liberty and justice" and instead evaluating them upon the RESULTS THAT ARE RENDERED in a society.
We as a people have been fully engulfed into the "Malcolm X Political Football Game" with so little to show for it but strong loyalties to our "team".
Some of the same people who are attacking New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and their $50 million building complex are the very same people protesting to the GOVERNMENT, demanding that it us income redistribution to build them a community center in their home district.
I have observed that the 3 main oracles of influence within our society are:
- Government / Politics
Some people see #3 as the biggest threat and use #1 and #2 as a means of attacking it.
