(Black churches are never "mega churches" for some reason.)

I wonder why that is, any ideas?
You made up some shit and then asked for ideas as to why your manufactured bullshit is real?

I wonder why you do that. Any ideas?


Triumph Church is a Christian megachurch located in Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Leftists never refer to Black churches as megachurches that I have ever read online.
You are incredibly ignorant.

And yet, AMAZINGLY, White Leftist Shamers on USMB are silent about it and we don't see any Black Pastors being arrested on television. We have fat crocodile tears about the "mega churches". (Black churches are never "mega churches" for some reason.)

I wonder why that is, any ideas?

When deciding to close the doors of black churches, congregational leaders across the US wrestle with unique considerations. Paul J. James, pastor of CareView Community Church in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, noted in an interview with The Undefeated how closing is “counterintuitive to most churches, especially the black church… where we’re just glad to get together because of how hard life has been historically for us here in America. Church has been a safe place for us. It’s been a safe harbor. Now here we are faced with the inability to come together.”

Last week, the federal government strongly urged Americans not to gather in groups of more than 10, and restrictions keep coming. We suspect that many churches will close in the near future, but the decision will not been easy.

In St. Louis, the mayor hosted a teleconference with 300 clergy, including many of black churches, to urge them not to hold services. While some chose to stop meetings and modify their ministries, others struggled to make the change.

In Michigan, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer banned gatherings of more than 50 but then exempted churches from penalties. This will give some churches more options, though many are choosing to modify in some way. Triumph Church, which has seven locations in the Detroit area, will continue to gather in person, for now, though it expanded the number of services to reduce congregation size and is asking members to register ahead of time so it can maintain at least six feet between worshippers. It is also providing an online service and a drive-in service.

A lot of things inform these responses to the coronavirus outbreak: culture, histories of discrimination, and marginalization, as well as faith-based values. People experience events like COVID-19 not only as individuals but also in communities and in the social locations we inhabit. As social scientists—Deidra as a black woman doing research on HPV and Elaine as a white woman who studies how religious organizations respond to science—we offer some observations based on our research for the past 10 years at the Religion and Public Life Program at Rice University. We have been gathering upwards of 150 religious and civic leaders regularly to talk about how we can use social science research on religion to build common ground for the common good.

Drop the white victimhood lady. There are black mega churches. And apparently blacks in Florida aren't holding services in churches. And its always funny when a republican like you suddenly gets so concerned about blacks only after somebody white gets arrested for something that you can't see blacks getting arrested for.

Nobody black will be calling COVID19 a racist disease. But that's how you racists see black people. Normal non racist whites would not make that kind of comment.

Black churches need to close just like everybody else. But what you really need to do Sue is work on ending the racism in the white community that has you posting this instead of whining "what about black pastors, why don't they get arrested."

They are already starting in on the racism absolutely. Of course it's racism and not the fact that Blacks in Detroit are still congregating in family groups; still going to church in groups.

Although Detroit has the highest concentration of cases, several suburbs that surround the city have low rates of coronavirus including Dearborn, Allen Park and Grosse Pointe Park.

All are predominantly white.

Tlaib said “it is very clear that structural racism is showing its ugly face during this global pandemic.”

“It is communities of color, especially the African-American community in my district, that you see getting directly impacted,” she said.

Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, an epidemiologist, said even if it was made public, existing data on coronavirus may not illustrate the full effect in communities of color.

“We're testing only people who come in with severe disease,” said El-Sayed, the former health director of the City of Detroit who ran for governor in 2018 as a Democrat.

“Frankly, I think that we would be very much underestimating the burden that this disease has in low-income communities and communities of color.”
Maybe blacks think this whole virus thing is an over-hyped hoax -- you know, like you use to think....

So look at it on the bright side....this just shows that you are more advanced than those inferior blacks because now you fully support social distancing and you no longer think its all hype -- while those feeble-minded blacks still think its nothing to take serious....

#BLEXIT
In case this isn't clear: I think everyone who is any color has the same Constitutionally protected right to meet and worship together as anyone else. I am pointing out that one group is targeted for arrest and public scorn and another group is not, simple as that.
but what about black on black crime??
I am surprised that hasn't been mentioned. Sue has let her racist flag fly. 1 white pastor got arrested for this. I've known multiple black pastors who were followed and stopped by white police for no reason. Spare us the white victimhood sue.

If you google "black mega churches" you get this on page 1. Even the NYT, Sue.

You might want to review the coverage of Creflo Dollars jet plane scandal or Eddie Longs molestation of young boys scandal by the so called liberal media sue. You are just ignorant about the black community and want to cry about how unfair things are for whites.

Oh yeah and that Sharpton guy who you right wingers hate so much, isn't he a pastor? Isn't that Jessie Jackson fellow a pastor too? Wasn't there a black pastor who got hammered by the so called leftist media a few years back named Rev. Wright, who was accused of racism without making a racist comment? And wasn't there once a black pastor named King who those like you love to repeat one line from who was murdered? So sue, please shut the hell up with your whining about the one white pastor who got arrested for having church during a pandemic.

Why must there still be ‘black’ churches and why does everyone have to accept that without question?
Why are there still white churches and why does everyone have to accept that without question?
Name one ‘white’ church?

Who didn’t see this coming (besides white democrats)?
I already predicted that any disproportionate number of black deaths from Wuhan would be used as a Katrina replay against trump.
trump didn't see this coming. We don't need this virus for any type of replay against trump. We have the 3 years before the virus hit, that's plenty of evidence.
What I was talking about coming wasn’t the virus. It was the charges of racism post-disaster by neo-segregationists like you.
I am no segregationist and no charges of racism have been put on this virus by anyone black. But you white racists always try making these kinds of claims.
There will be. It’s the democrat party way.

Why are there black churches? Could it be because black folks couldn't attend the white ones. Duh.
So, they’re segregationists. You’re categorically OK with segregation. I’ll remember that.

Don't hurt em with documented history like that Superbad. They want to live with amnesia in peace.
And who is stopping them now? No one. Just because blacks refuse to integrate doesn’t mean non-blacks are segregationist. You have it completely on the wrong foot.

I always wondered that myself. In my neighborhood there was a white Baptist church and a Black Baptist church within a block of each other. I tried the white one..there was a lot of hypocrisy. Did not like. Then a woman I knew invited me to the Black Baptist one, and there was a Spirit of God and understanding there. I went on and off a bunch of times..Good church.
They do have white permanent members in the congregation. They also have a food bank while the white Baptist church does not.
It's actually one of the best churches around there.
If either still stipulates skin color this long past civil rights era then neither is Christian.

I'm black sue, please stop trying to tell me what blacks are thinking. Funny how you are on this but you run from the reality of white racist American public policy. COVID19 will hit the black community hard due to the scarcity of medical facilities in that community, low incomes and the inability to afford health insurance. And that is due to racism. So like I said, you don't want to discuss white racist American public policy, but you want to run your mouth about some black churches in Detroit.
Everyone knows what blacks are thinking. You guys cant stop talking about racism.

What an idiot. Black folks COULDN'T attend white churches, so we had to create our own. Pretty sure you already knew that though.

Drop the white victimhood lady. There are black mega churches. And apparently blacks in Florida aren't holding services in churches. And its always funny when a republican like you suddenly gets so concerned about blacks only after somebody white gets arrested for something that you can't see blacks getting arrested for.

Nobody black will be calling COVID19 a racist disease. But that's how you racists see black people. Normal non racist whites would not make that kind of comment.

Black churches need to close just like everybody else. But what you really need to do Sue is work on ending the racism in the white community that has you posting this instead of whining "what about black pastors, why don't they get arrested."
Why must there still be ‘black’ churches and why does everyone have to accept that without question?
Why are there black churches? Could it be because black folks couldn't attend the white ones. Duh.
Don't hurt em with documented history like that Superbad. They want to live with amnesia in peace.
And who is stopping them now? No one. Just because blacks refuse to integrate doesn’t mean non-blacks are segregationist. You have it completely on the wrong foot.
Wow where do these fools come from?

And yet, AMAZINGLY, White Leftist Shamers on USMB are silent about it and we don't see any Black Pastors being arrested on television. We have fat crocodile tears about the "mega churches". (Black churches are never "mega churches" for some reason.)

I wonder why that is, any ideas?

When deciding to close the doors of black churches, congregational leaders across the US wrestle with unique considerations. Paul J. James, pastor of CareView Community Church in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, noted in an interview with The Undefeated how closing is “counterintuitive to most churches, especially the black church… where we’re just glad to get together because of how hard life has been historically for us here in America. Church has been a safe place for us. It’s been a safe harbor. Now here we are faced with the inability to come together.”

Last week, the federal government strongly urged Americans not to gather in groups of more than 10, and restrictions keep coming. We suspect that many churches will close in the near future, but the decision will not been easy.

In St. Louis, the mayor hosted a teleconference with 300 clergy, including many of black churches, to urge them not to hold services. While some chose to stop meetings and modify their ministries, others struggled to make the change.

They are already starting in on the racism absolutely. Of course it's racism and not the fact that Blacks in Detroit are still congregating in family groups; still going to church in groups.

Although Detroit has the highest concentration of cases, several suburbs that surround the city have low rates of coronavirus including Dearborn, Allen Park and Grosse Pointe Park.

All are predominantly white.

Tlaib said “it is very clear that structural racism is showing its ugly face during this global pandemic.”

“It is communities of color, especially the African-American community in my district, that you see getting directly impacted,” she said.

Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, an epidemiologist, said even if it was made public, existing data on coronavirus may not illustrate the full effect in communities of color.

“We're testing only people who come in with severe disease,” said El-Sayed, the former health director of the City of Detroit who ran for governor in 2018 as a Democrat.

“Frankly, I think that we would be very much underestimating the burden that this disease has in low-income communities and communities of color.”
I'm black sue, please stop trying to tell me what blacks are thinking. Funny how you are on this but you run from the reality of white racist American public policy. COVID19 will hit the black community hard due to the scarcity of medical facilities in that community, low incomes and the inability to afford health insurance. And that is due to racism. So like I said, you don't want to discuss white racist American public policy, but you want to run your mouth about some black churches in Detroit.
Everyone knows what blacks are thinking. You guys cant stop talking about racism.

all kinds of "sickness" phenomena has been attributed to
"white racism" Way back some eager black sociologists
and writers attributed increased hypertension amongst black
adults to "white racism" "way back" is when I was in my twenties---
WAY WAY BACK-------actually there are some maladies that afflict
various GROUPS of persons based on their inherited constitutions---
and some based on social norms. Of course it is true that if in
black communities "virus precautions" are not observed, then
that fact will impact on the stats. HOWEVER the "blame it on racism" thing has been going on since web dubois. He was
brilliant--------but like the similarly brilliant Freud------his ideas
galvanized all sorts of stupidity

This is the last post in which I will address you. I agree that all of those are severe and lamentable issues and they will impact the community and COVID in Detroit and elsewhere. Due to poverty, lack of healthcare and the preponderance of health conditions in the black community such as COPD, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes, it's going to be anywhere from difficult to devastating.

IT DOES NOT HELP when black people make the choice not to socially distance themselves in churches or in family gatherings.

That's it from me, I notice you are picking at me but ignore the actual racist comment in the thread. That's because I'm not actually a racist, which you know. So, I'm done.
Between the two of you the non-racist is......you.

IM2 is a piece of shit racist.
