White only Christian conference protested

Hey, I don't go for any of that racist bullshit myself but why is it when there's a Black or hispanic only event dignitaries get invited but advertise it as White only and outrage ensues?
Of course the Klan and other white supremist bullshit didn't help, but what the fuck, nobody comes down on the New Black Panthers over their ridiculous racist hate speech, not even the Justice Department.


A controversial pastor's conference welcoming only "white Christians" is underway in Lamar County, Ala., upsetting residents of the nearby town of Winfield in the western part of the state.
Christian Identity Ministries is holding a three-day conference for so-called "white Christians" who contend they have been treated unfairly, the Rev. Mel Lewis told local TV station WSFA. Lewis, the organizer and keynote speaker, says they have the right, like any other Americans, to worship how they wish.
Ku Klux Klan flags and white supremacy slogans surround the conference, which will conclude with a cross being set on fire Friday night. Organizers say it's not a cross-burning, but rather sacred Christian cross lighting.
"We are not breaking any laws. We're not violating any ordinances. We're bringing the Word of God to people who want it, obviously, or they wouldn't be here," Lewis told the TV station.
Lewis said of the conference-goers: "They are part of the chosen race."
The mayor of nearby Winfield said residents are upset, and the event does not represent their town in any way.
"Business people are upset. The city is upset. The city of Winfield does not condone this," Winfield Mayor Wayne Silas told another local TV station, WECT.
"It's surprising to see something like that in our town," said Tyler Cantrell. "I know it's been here in the past."
Organizers say their ministry is not a hate group and that although there is a strong KKK presence, the Klan did not sponsor the event.

Lol)..well, it's disappointing but yup, not a peep when it comes to Jeremiah Wright, Holder, or the Black Panther's?

Not disappointing at all. While I may or may not agree with them, they have a right to say what they want. And it's better they do their thing out in the open so everybody can judge (now if only that was being done fairly!).

stay safe.

Waking up. It's not easy being the new minority. Right back in their fucking faces I say.

tell the city of windfield to eat shit and die motherfuckers. I'll lay down a hundred dollar bill that the mayor, some residents, and some "business people" are black and about as racist as they come.

I wish they would keep the beloved battle flag of the Army of Northern Virgina out of these sort of things. It makes the Confederate flag look racist... which is what many believe. And its certainly not the case for many of us who are proud of our Confederate heritage.

Confederacy and secession = freedom.
Current US Constitution + its ammendments = slavery.
