Listen, Christ, You Did Alright In Your Day, I Reckon— But That Day’s Gone Now.

The Rev.Kenneth Fowlkes of Kingdom Builders Ministries says "Humanists are encouraging African Americans to go to hell."And some one else even suggested that black women are better off adopting atheism... Some people are pointing the finger at the Black Church as the reason for African American leaving Jesus....All I can say is at one time The Black Church was one of the few places were we could go to escape the injustices of the world...The act of going to church alone has helped us maintain any sense of hope as well as dignity...I have always believed that in most black churches our people were/are free to think on their own....But at the same time were given that feeling of security....I "m talking about the felling of being free from danger while in the arms of Jesus...What I’m trying to say is that I don't get this new movement....I don't no any one who denies the existence of God especially black women....But according to a newPew Forum study on Religion that seems to be what's going on....Yet the movement is seen by some black leaders like Rev. Fowlker as more of a threat than an opportunity...What's your thoughts?
