Recently, self appointed ‘apostle’ Charles Blake of the Church of God in Christ drafted a letter to send a message to bully the state of Missouri to crucify Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting.
This letter is rampant with assumptions and outright lies. Blake is stirring people to turn on government and police to further his racist agenda. Make no mistake: Blake has an agenda to break the State of Missouri using the COGIC’s multiple millions and threats as his henchmen.
Apparently Mr. Blake doesn’t believe people should be able to defend themselves…unless they are a person of color. Since the 2008, Mr. Blake has taken the COGIC to the altar of abortion for Mr. Obama and is soon to take it to the LGBT. But where they came from was FAR from being bullies, murderers, and racists: This atrocity was an offshoot of the Great Azusa Street Revival.
I cannot imagine how God must be grieved by this. Mr. Blake needs to turn in his collar and join the ranks of other race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
This letter is incredibly offensive. No real man of God would assume his own superiority to do this…and in writing. Mr. Blake, you need to revisit the Altar.
The text of the letter is below; click here to see the copy of it.
Dear Governor Nixon:
The tragic shooting of Michael Brown is extremely troubling to us. As an organization that has invested over $ 140 million dollars in the St. Louis regional economy over the past four years, with the likelihood of investing an additional $150 million dollars over the next four years, we feel especially obligated to urge that steps be taken to ensure that there will be justice in the Michael Brown shooting and that necessary systemic changes will be made that reduce the likelihood of situations like those listed below happening again:
- The alleged circumstances surrounding his shooting;
- The fact that the body of a teenager was left lying in the street for over four hours;
- The militaristic response by law enforcement to individuals exercising their first amendment right to peaceful protest;
- The fact that law enforcement officers removed their name badges during protests so as to remain anonymous;
- What clearly looked like an effort by the Ferguson Police Chief to poison public opinion by releasing edited video tape about a totally unrelated event;
- The unprecedented time it took to make public the name of the involved officer;
- The fact that a police report has still not been made public as required by law;
- The fact that law enforcement was seen wearing bracelets that say ‘I am Darren Wilson’ while positing that the public wait for the completion of the process before drawing conclusions;
- The seemingly inordinate amount of time that it has taken to determine if Officer Wilson should be prosecuted; and,
- The additional shootings in St. Louis of which at least one appears to have resulted from inappropriate use of deadly force.
An understanding of your plans to ensure justice is achieved and to make needed systemic changes will be helpful in our deliberations. We await your expeditious reply.
