PRESIDENT OBAMA'S Inauguration Pastor says Whites are Going To Hell: The Methodist Church's founder Rev. John Wesley of England had a dream in which the Angel of the Lord took him to Hell where he heard the screams of the doomed and the damned. He asked , "Are there any Roman Catholics here? Are there any Anglicans here? Are there any Methodists here?" To each question, the Angel answered in the affirmative. John Wesley was distressed. The Angel took him to Heaven where he heard the most beautiful worship and music and joyous praises. He asked: "Are there any Roman Catholics here? Are there any Anglicans here? Are there any Methodists here?' The Angel answered in the negative. He said that there were none. John Wesley was really dismayed by this time. He needed to know why. The Angel answered: "In Heaven there are only those who love Jesus Christ and have been washed in His Blood. Here there are only Believers in Jesus Christ" . I am more than a little puzzled at the statement made by Rev Joe Lowery. I have worked with hundreds of Black Preachers of the Gospel in the countries of Africa and the Black Nations of the West Indies and others lands and have seen their amazing spirit of faith, enthusiasm and joy. They are hard working men and woman who seldom complain or murmur or expect everything for nothing. Under difficult economic conditions they not only survive but prosper. When they immigrate to the USA they are an example to the American Black preachers teaching them what faith, hard work and the right attitude can achieve. Of course, they have had splendid role models and leaders like Dr. Turnel Nelson, Dr Allister Alexander, Rev W.P. Ryan and Rev. Dennis White, unlike the American Blacks who have had political hacks and leaches like Rev. Jessie Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton who like to dwell on the negatives while they free load of others. Joe Lowery was only partially right. There will be White people in Hell. There will be unbelievers of every religion, colour and culture in Hell. And in Heaven we will gather from every nation, every tribe and every people. And many of them will be there because some White Missionaries like Count Zinzendorf's Moravians, Martin Luther's Lutherans, William Carey's Baptists, Andrew Murray's Dutch Reformed, General William Booth's Salvation Army gave their everything to bring them the Gospel. Multitudes that no man will be able to number will be in Heaven because a lot of White preachers like C.T.Studd, Dr. David Livingstone, T.L.Osborn, Oral Roberts, Billy Graham and Rienhardt Bonnke left their homes repeatedly to share the good news on every continent of the world. Yes, there will be a lot of White people in Hell who have rejected the mercy of God and spurned the blood of Jesus Christ and sold out to the world, the flesh and the devil. There will also be a lot of Black people in Heaven because White me were willing to give all, even their lives to bring to them the Good News of the Saviour Who bled and died on Calvary's Cross for their sins and rose again for their justification. Amen and Praise the Lord. - Pastor Max Solbrekken

Rev who gave Obama's inaugural benediction reportedly says he thinks whites going to hell

The reverend and civil rights advocate who gave the benediction at President Obama’s inauguration suggested at a recent Obama re-election rally that he thinks white people are going to hell -- though he later said it was just a joke.

The Rev. Joseph Lowery spoke at a rally Saturday in Georgia. According to an account in the Monroe County Reporter, "Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he mellowed and just said most of them were.

"Now, he said, he is back to where he was," according to the newspaper. 

"I don’t know what kind of a n----- wouldn’t vote with a black man running," he also told the audience in the St. James Baptist Church in Forsyth, Ga., according to the paper. 

The 91-year-old Lowery, though, told an Atlanta-area TV station and the Daily Caller that the monologue was a joke and from the perspective of a young militant.

Lowery also said he made clear at the time that the comments -- at the event reportedly attended by hundreds of African Americans -- were intended as a joke.

Still, Forsyth Mayor John Howard said he was “pretty shocked” by the comments, according to the newspaper.
Lowery told the Daily Caller he doesn’t remember making the n-word comment.

“I never said that, I don’t remember saying that.”

Lowery was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009 by President Obama. His benediction in 2009 for Obama's inauguration included one racially charged, though somewhat whimsical, line. 

He closed with the following passage: "Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man -- and when white will embrace what is right."
