Government policies add to the killings

April 30, 2013 

The killing season has begun with the proliferation of black people murdering black people.

What actions are black churches taking to stop the murderous violence, which claims the lives of so many black people? Those who believe the teachings and the example set by Jesus Christ know there are responsibilities beyond attendance at Sunday church services.

Christians must demand that legislators modify laws that encourage decadent conduct to obtain publicly subsidized benefits. The immoral behavior said laws encourage is especially damaging to black children.

Black children often grow up feeling victimized and angry because of the deplorable conditions and treatment they had been forced to endure. Diabolical laws were enacted for the financial and political benefit of those who prey on the poor and needy by facilitating their dependence on government welfare.
