Growing Number of Black Atheists, Agnostics

This is an old article, yet the information remains relevant. Doesn’t mean I agree with the content, lets say some of it. What the Pastor said was rather egregious

Pastor Seth Pickens of Zion Hill Baptist Church in Los Angeles believes church politics are largely to blame. “They’re very turned off by the church. Some of the politics and some of the scandals and everything that happens in the church, it turns people off.” What was agreed on by Pickens and Black agnostics was the need for unity, regardless of religious conviction. “Whether you believe in God, whether you confess Christ or not, if you see someone hungry you should feed them and many of the Black atheists feel the same way. So, I don’t see why we can’t work together.”

This isn’t about dialogue of any kind, it still is about right or wrong. He is half correct about politics, but it doesn’t answer the real question why blacks are becoming non’s as I refer to myself, it is a different way of stating the obvious. I would like to give a twofold answer to why blacks have turned their collective backs on the church. 1. People look at the hypocrisy 2. We have read/studied the bible, it’s that simple, it was written by someone for a different time. It isn’t a moral or comprehensive book. If god wrote through men through the holy spirit “which makes no sense” it would have so many errors. He(god) would have preserved it. I could write a thousand more words on this subject, but you get the point.  How he(pastor) vaguely disguised his answer about politics shows he still believes we are all going to an ever burning hell, but we can work together. Which a good thing, what we have in common is our blackness…
