Today I Bishop Gregg L. Greer President of Freedom First International openly ask Evangelicals to directly oppose the President of the United States of America.

Trump’s racial views are made explicit by his rhetoric and actions toward people of color; no interpretation necessary but there are consistent themes to Trump’s use of “racism” over the past decade, and they show how white supremacy shapes his approach to American politics today.

Recently a commemoration at Jamestown Virginia did mark four hundred years since the first slaves set foot in North America it is impossible to ignore the emblem of hate and disdain that the President represents,” the lawmakers said, in a statement. Trump’s “repeated attacks on black legislators and comments about black communities” make the President an “ill-suited” choice to “commemorate a monumental period in American history

A Widespread report by Quinnipiac University  also contradicted Trump’s claims of support among African-Americans. Eighty per cent of African-American voters said Trump is racist. Fifty-five per cent of Hispanics agreed

We believe that this man's (Donald Trump) main achievement has been to activate latent bigotries rather than expand their influence, and what can be activated can presumably be suppressed.

Many say that he tears America apart by race and threatens our already challenged  democracy-I SAY TRUE

Many say that he (Trump) pits Americans against each other by color and religion to distract from his cruelty. I SAY TRUE

Many say that he enables and encourages white supremacists. I SAY TRUE

I must say that for many years I Bishop Gregg L Greer have remained, Apolitical and as a national civil rights advocate-I have not to closely aligned with partisan politics after his election and as even we speak, my only motivating factor has always been to assist those who are"oppressed" and suffer through obstacles that impede their human rights in the United States of America and Internationally.

Our goal not interested in going after people who are bigots and motivated by racism". " I'm interested in stopping people who are using criminal actions to threaten and intimidate entire communities.

Detractors will Say Where Are your facts:

*Restricting the rights of women to reproductive health care, including abortion;

*Instituting a Muslim registry and threatening to stop all immigration from Muslim-majority countries;

*Threatening the free press-a global institution that has keep us informed,red and free

*Implementing Stop and Frisk nationally;

*Re-starting the nuclear arms race.

Encouraging Police Brutality 

President Trump Tells Police Officers Not To Be 'Too Nice' With Suspects encouraging police brutality  Trump said Friday at a Suffolk County, New York event discussing the administration’s efforts “Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put your hand over it. Like, don’t hit their head, and they’ve just killed somebody. I said, you can take the hand away, O.K.?.”

It was disturbing remark, but even more disturbing is the fact that it’s part of a long history of Trump encouraging his supporters to engage in violence. Largely unchecked by his party’s leadership, Trump’s rhetoric has become normalized despite its real-world ramifications.

March 15, 2019  President Donald Trump this week issued a thinly veiled threat of violence against his opponents, saying that members of the police, military and biker gangs could “play it tough” if they “reach a certain point.”  

 

The president later deleted his tweet as news began to trickle in of a mass shooting in New Zealand that left at least 49 worshiping Muslims dead on that Friday.

The only is this standing reprehensible and not acceptable mainly because citizens must always insist that the people have the right to judge of its merits.

We (I) say now- A growing number of American Citizens now see this man's (Donald Trump) agenda as dangerous and also as his, “Imperial Presidency,” is one that wants to use domestic issues to expand power. In doing so, the President now wants to enjoy virtually unlimited power without checks and balances. This is a hideous denigration which has so no place in American public policy and is outside of the mainstream of public inter

We must unite and stand with immigrants, Muslims, women, LGBTQ people, poor and working people and Black Lives Matter. Only the people can defeat racism, bigotry and hate!” history will tell us that his main achievement has been to activate bigotries rather than expand their influence, and what can be activated can presumably be suppressed.


For me and a growing number of others- this is the important clarion call of the moment. We would ask all evangelicals  to consider taking important four steps of for resolution:

1) Continue Seeking advocacy on the ground, 2) negotiation, 3) advocate by media and social media, and direct action by protest.

After speaking with the officials of Birmingham, King concluded that he needed to take action by leading the public demonstration. He (King) didn't regret his decision, nor should we.

We must keep one important fact near to us-stated by eloquently by The Great Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.

One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

As so should We-as evangelicals and others-we oppose this President and all the the injustice that he has brought onto the land and the world.
