Why Are So Many Christians Racist? Pastor Claims Slavery Saved Black People From "Bone In Nose, Fighting Lions" In Africa.
Racist Pastor Keith Gomez argues slavery was a good thing because it helped Africans escape Africa and come to America. Gomez, who leads the Northwest Bible Baptist Church in Elgin, Illinois, wants everyone to know that slavery was not really a bad thing, and that it actually helped African-Americans escape Africa. In a recent sermon Gomez argued slavery was a good thing, because: “If it wasn’t for slavery, those folks would still be in Africa with a bone in their nose…”
The following is an excerpt from Pastor Gomez’s racist remarks on slavery: …
" We're talking about 13 books in the Bible, Romans through Philemon. You ought to write that down. I could really shake you up now, but I don’t know if I oughta wake you up that bad… when you get in the Pauline — are Y'all listening to me? — when you get into the Pauline epistles, you’re getting in the doctrine. So why would you get in Philemon when he’s trying to teach you how to treat your slave?… If they should be slaves. [Makes a fake snoring sound] So you wanna go to sleep? See, what you wanna do is turn into TBN [Trinity Broadcasting Network] and listen to them odd birds who don’t know doctrine whatsoever. And then you hate slavery because we were taught to hate that. Because we’re so nasty. And some of you little whites can’t get it either. If it wasn’t for slavery, those folks would still be in Africa with a bone in their nose fighting lions, and if you don’t like that, you can lump it any way you want. That ain’t a prejudice. That is factual and historical."WOW!
