A New Black Robe Brigade?


The pastoral silence must end!

Exclusive: Ken Hutcherson urges clergy to ‘speak the truth and defend our congregations’

My friends, the time has come to stand up and speak. Today in the United States of America, there are over 450,000 churches, which includes evangelical, Protestant and Catholic. That means there are over one-half million pastors, ministers and priests overseeing these congregations. Further, the records will show, each week over 60 million people attend these churches’ services. On the other hand, there are less than 2 million Islamic people in the United States. Statistics show less than 3 percent of people profess to be of homosexual preference, yet you would never know that by watching television news or the shows they put on the air for every man, woman and child to watch. These two groups are considered “most favored” by the liberal agenda. So, I will ask you the question, pastor: Are you supposed to be protecting the tiny little minority attacking our Christian belief or the millions of sheep you have committed to the Lord you will protect? And by the way, whom do you fear more – the counterfeit or the Creator?

My friends, can you please step up to the plate like Jackie Robinson did so many years ago for every black person in America, and stand up for justice and equality as only Christ can grant? The freedom to own a gun to protect our families is being threatened hourly by those seeking our demise. Religious persecution of our children in the public schools is as deadly as any cancer we have ever seen. I can assure you the Islamic clerics in America wouldn’t sit back and say nothing! We, as a body of believers, are playing a dangerous game of “silent roulette,” with pastors afraid to speak out and yet holding a weapon no gun can be compared with. The words are “pastoral silence.” This silence has lead to alarming levels of intimidation and persecution of our children in the public schools. Our political system has sunk to an all-time low, encouraging “special-interest politicians” supporting anti-Christian values, such as gay marriage, no respect for human life (both unborn and born) and the removal of the middle class in America, with no consequence for their arrogant actions.

Where are you, my fellow pastors, who have remained silent in the genocide of millions of unborn children, the takeover of our once Judeo-Christian heritage in government, the courts and the recent abandonment of our peer in Iran, who is beaten daily for his Christian faith? Can you not even speak up against our State Department allowing this persecution to happen to this American Christian citizen?

The late Johnny Cash called himself “the man in black,” and now I’m the one who is black, forming a brigade of pastors nobody can stop if we so choose to obey our Lord and be about His business in America. Where are you my peers? Rosa Parks sat in the back seat of a bus for many years, until one day she had enough of that nonsense and moved to the front. If this sounds a bit “racist,” it’s not. The issues have never been more black and white as they are today. It’s time we all stand up against those elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, who have sold the Christian community down the river. Republicans at the RNC can take much of this blame. How can they move away from the party of Reagan and Lincoln, and become the party of preparing the way for our destruction, by compromising our safety, by selling-out our national soul and now being no different than the Democratic Party?

The Republican and Democratic parties no longer represent the biblical foundations we value as sacred. Do you think that one day you will stand in judgment with no consequence as to how we took care of our nation? At one time in our history, it was the Democrats who were the segregationists and racists ordering their dogs to attack peaceful protesters. Today, we have more to fear than attack dogs and fire hoses.

We pastors must not be afraid to speak the truth and defend our congregations. If we all stand together, we can do the great things God has called us to do. Remember, God is not a Republican or a Democrat. God is not an American, but He better be America’s God.

I am organizing a Black Robe Brigade, which is for pastors, ministry leaders and anyone else interested in turning America back to God. Please join here. Numbers produce power, and power produces change.
