In the picture above, can you see the Playboy Magazine positioned on the wall behind Sister Falwell’s head? It is quite revelatory.  The religious right and evangelicals have jumped into the bed with corruption and “moral sins” The very thing that evangelicals have been railing and preaching against for years have become of no consequence and has been supplanted by their greater need for privilege, money and power.

“Your politicians are predators feeding on the people for corrupt profit. Your preachers go along with these politicians, speaking lies as if God has given them a vision, when he has not. The privilege oppress the poor and needy. You mistreat the immigrants and deny them justice I looked for some one to stand up for the people and no one would stand.” ~ Your Bible – Ezekiel 22:27

Why is it that so many evangelicals are quiet about the injustices of being unleashed in our Nation? Why are white evangelicals choosing to pick a couple comfortable scriptures to absolved them of their chosen responsibility to stand for the poor, the needy and immigrants.

“People of God,” you are not God’s people, if you choose not to speak up against wrong and corrupt politicians, in favor of privilege. You have no spiritual witness if you cannot speak up for the welfare of all the people. Choosing to preach Jesus and teach holy living rather than the values and teachings of Jesus true mission to the weak, vulnerable, poor and oppressed, you have “profane his holiness” and have rejected what Christianity really is: “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from a corrupt system. Your – Bible – James 1:27
