The last church (non-denominational, “multicultural,” and evangelical) I attended displayed these exact characteristics. They were amplified it seems at the election of President Obama. It shook me to my core, and made me re-evaluate Christianity and how it was introduced to African Americans via our descendants. I really had to do some soul searching, and I eventually left church and organized religion altogether. It is too conflicting and too difficult to align man’s actions with ancient texts on our behavior. It’s more difficult to watch and rely on leaders who display behavior contrary to the “good words” the believe worthy of disseminating.
