A Ram In The Bush

America let’s clearly understand God always has a Ram in the bush. It was so with the father of the Faith, Abraham. In 1964 and 1965 it was so with President Lyndon B. Johnson, and the passage of the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. Thus, no other man in this land had the power, moral will, skills, and the political know how to pass these two historic bills that changed the history and governing structure of American society. The Civil Rights Act and The Voting Rights Act changed the culture of American society creating a multi-cultural democratic society. Least we forget God used many Blacks and Whites to fight for human rights dignity for all, especially Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. Today, America, as we have known her to be is under devilish assault by former President Donald J. Trump and his MAGA Cult Followers, (77 million) strong and counting. At that time, the mountain has been hard to climb, but in the Twenty First Century, it is getting harder to climb, because all day and in every way, we must resist Trumpism in everything, we do and say, not some of the time, but all the time. Hence, we must let Trump and his MAGA Cult Followers know that together we stand for multi-cultural democracy, and we shall not be moved, because: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, and bringeth forth his fruit in his season, his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore, the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” (Psalm 1: 1-6). 

America, God answers the fervent prayers of the faithful, especially when their prayers are accompanied by Godly works. Thus, Godfearing Americans must make haste to the polls on November 5th, 2024, and vote for multi-cultural democracy, health rights for all, voting rights for all, employment rights for all, and most of all, sensible gun rights legislation, because our children deserve a future that is free of gun violence, mayhem, and death. America is still that spiritual light set on a hill that embraces the  light of God that shines brightly for the people, of the people, and by the people, because the cardinal moral truths of democracy are these: “that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.” Thus, in the spiritually profound words of Justice Sotomayor rejecting the majority opinion, “A President should not be a king” Therefore: “I dissent”. America, we should dissent, as well as, against making the President of the United States of America a King. Thus, the not so Supreme Court should know this: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6: 7). God says that in the last days evil doers shall be found wanting!

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
