Robert Parham, executive director of the Baptist Center for Ethics in Nashville, said he still finds it unusual that blacks in particular would support a denomination that strongly supports President Bush, who received less than 10 percent of the black vote in the last election.


Most Black folk are followers of the religion they are because that's what they were told to do/be. It's no more surprising that some of them are Baptists than it is that they are any other sect of the Christian religion which was used to justify slavery or than it is that some are Republicans or support companies that help to advance racist policies ... here and all over the world.

Independent investigation of truth is more the exception than the rule when it comes to us. Most of us just take what is told to us, accept it and never question it.
