Black America: Reaping harvest of racial idolatry?
Exclusive: Alan Keyes asks if minorities' 'Christian conscience' will sleep forever

“In every important respect Obama’s victory in the 2008 presidential election was a victory for racism. First there was the racist claim that his skin color made his election somehow significant for black Americans with whom he otherwise shares no common moral or historical heritage. Second, his stubborn advocacy of the parent’s right to murder her child made it a victory in principle for the racist notion that ‘inferior’ physical development leaves people with no rights that must be respected by their supposed betters. Third, the U.S. Constitution has been openly set aside on account of fears that racist violence would result from investigating the facts regarding his citizenship at birth (lest they support the conclusion that he is constitutionally ineligible to serve as president of the United States.) Truth, right and the Constitution – all sacrificed for the sake of racist fears and premises.”

For all the Democrats’ talk of unity, the years during which Obama has occupied the White House seem to me to have left our country more deeply and critically divided than at any time in its history (excepting perhaps the years just before the Civil War.) In the column quoted above, I foresaw this result when I went on to write:
“Unity is always on their lips, but their hearts are far from it. Instead of a national government that represents our common heart for justice and liberty, the Obama faction means to create a fractured reflection of all our differences, until we forget how to see, think and act as Americans, regardless of those differences. With this dissolution of the American identity they prepare the way for the dissolution of the United States itself, so that a strong sense of our national identity no longer poses an obstacle to their plans for a new, global regime that sets aside our ‘provincial’ concerns with right and ordered liberty.”

Many people have awakened now to the fact that the Obama wing of the elitist faction has been unleashed to turn this country into a demoralized wreck – dissolute, shattered and economically ruined. Included in this awakening are many people who voted for Obama mainly because they felt that their vote would contribute to freeing America from the shadows of racism so often exploited to promote bad policies. Obama’s displays of shame and contempt for America have instead lengthened and deepened those shadows. He and his cohorts have used the charge or insinuation of racism as their instrument of choice in efforts to cow the spirit and will of the American people.

Of course, Obama’s 2008 victory also depended on virtually unanimous support from many black Americans. Among them were professing Christians, who put aside every consideration of faith and conscience to support someone dedicated to socialism, rooted in the God-erasing ideology of scientific materialism. This dedication led him to take stands on moral issues (like abortion and the law-enforced acceptance of homosexuality) that outrage and directly assault the tenets of the biblical faith these black Christians otherwise profess. But for Obama’s sake, they put the idol of false racial pride above their respect for God and His word.

At the Democrats’ convention this week, these black Christians saw the fruits of their idolatry. They saw the party that lifted up their idol expunge the name of God from its platform. And when some sought, for cynical political reasons, to mitigate the assault with just one mention of God’s name, they saw and heard the wave of sacrilegious scorn and contempt that rose to drown out the feebler voices that were raised to support the gesture. (The proposal passed, but only because the chairman’s gavel told a lie.)
