As quiet as it’s kept, Grammy-award winner Lecrae Moore has found out via his own Facebook page just how mean and ugly some in the Kingdom of GOD can be. White conservative racism and Christianity what a mix. Lecrae posted the following comment to his Facebook page and check out the response:
“Sometimes I wonder how we get so up in arms and culturally empathize with people in other countries. But can’t do that in our own backyard. We rushed to Haiti. We Adopt in Asia. We empathize with Africa. But struggle to humanize our struggles here in the states. Some people are responding out of hurt and are met with smug responses. If I tell you my brother got killed in a gang war, would you tell me “That’s what he gets! Shouldn’t be gang banging!” Of course not. As a Christian I see a Jesus empathize with the MOST undeserving people ever.
He offers a thief on the cross a home in Paradise. He dies for a rioting mob of angry killers. He looks upon a sinful world with compassion. And here we stand saying we believe that and all the while unfazed at the pain of a community. Offering statements that don’t comfort but only add salt to a wound we refuse to see. It’s hurtful. I don’t want anything to do with that kind of “Churchianity”. When, “I lost respect for you!” is said toward my expression of pain, all I hear is “Get over it!” If only it were that easy. If you are disappointed in me. Well you clearly can’t understand my pain. This Ferguson case was a mascot for something much bigger. Something people want to hope for. A dream. A dream that has been etched in our hearts for hundreds of years. A dream yet unrealized. If this is incoherent it’s cause it’s written by an imperfect hurting human being.”
