A black pastor in Alabama is standing by his decision to place a sign outside his church that calls black people who voted for President Trump “mentally ill.”
Pastor Michael Jordon says God “motivates” him to take a stand, and that’s why he created the sign that reads, “A black vote for Trump is mental illness” on one side and “A white vote for Trump is pure racism” on the other side.
While those negative messages may seem shocking, Pastor Jordon and the New Era Baptist Church are no strangers to controversy.
In the past, the controversial and radical pastor has posted signs that read, “Black folks need to stay out of white churches,” and “Trump deceived poor white folks” among other divisive and hateful messages.
A black pastor is defending a sign outside his Alabama church that asserts voting for President Trump is a mental illness or “pure racism.”
Michael Jordan, pastor of New Era Baptist Church outside of Birmingham, placed a sign outside his sanctuary that on one side says “A black vote for Trump is mental illness” and “A white vote for Trump is pure racism” on the other side.
“God motivates me to take a stand for what’s right,” Jordan said. “Read the Bible. And look in the White House. If they’re calling me a racist, look in the White House.”
Some locals are pushing back against Jordan’s sign, saying that a church is not a place to engage in political attacks.
“You should not come into a building and feel like you are hated … just because you came here to worship the Lord,” Daxton Kirk said. [Washington Examiner]
