GwenBaylor 5pts I would be completely wrong to group all degreed, writers and columnists as idiots and "educated fools" as you are wrong having grouped the entire black church together as outdated, ignorant and making no notable contribution to the African American community or society as a whole. You would do yourself and your readers a great benefit by researching the history of the church as well as the history of African Americans in the church before writing with such (seemingly) personal bias. The photo posted above this article is one of the most racial charged and demeaning photos viewed in a very long time. It is racial profiling at it's worst. It's the bible, Yvette. Not the good book. Read it. The church is neither black nor white, Yvette. It's the church and Christ is the head.
