Much to my disappointment, but not to my surprise, there is a backlash, from some Black Conservatives, against the panel Sean Hannity hosted.
One conservative writer has called it: “Conservative Black Victimhood”.
I have been getting emails all day asking me my thoughts toward the very negative response from some who are “conservatives”.
“An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.”
“Master,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us.”
“Do not stop him,” Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you.”- Luke 9:46-50
Several thoughts come to mind.
“Black Conservatives” who are publicly beating up Hannity and this panel are perhaps striving to be “the greatest” among Black Conservatives.
One of the ways to accomplish that, perhaps, is to ridicule the activities of others, to build one’s self up.
I think that is a mistake.
I too have private thoughts or concerns about many things, but I will never publicly air them out in order to establish myself on the backs of other conservatives.
I take God at His Word that I am simply to focus on what I am called to do and accept that, while I am not in favor of all some conservatives do, it is not my role to “stop them” or be obstructive.
In effect, a house divided cannot stand.
Hannity has said that he will bring back the panelists to do a “solutions” show.
Critics of this panel should have held their peace to see if Hannity followed through rather than shoot friendly fire before he had a chance to do so.
