Two Churches: One Based on ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Myth; the Other on Historical Fact
Contrast two narratives: There is the “Hands up, don’t shoot” myth. This phrase has become a battle cry stoking racial animosity and it emerges from an incident that never happened as claimed. Then there is the story of Jesus Christ’s being crucified and rising from the dead: an account supported by historical details. The narrative of Jesus’ death and resurrection is still changing lives today.

BLM and the church of the woke is a fraud and their rituals have no basis in fact. Hands up don’t shoot is a lie.  The fake church of the woke is no substitute for the real thing.  


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



During these days of COVID-19, when many churches remain closed by government mandate to keep the virus from spreading, a new religion has arisen in the country…and it’s all based on a myth.

Citizens Free Press (7/25/20) posts a  video  in Portland, Oregon, where you can see worshipers of the “Church of the Woke,” participating in an outdoor religious service. This consists of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of souls, shining their lights and chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot me.”

In 2014, in Ferguson, MO, Michael Brown was killed by a police officer. The myth says that he was walking away from the police officer, and saying, “Hands up, don’t shoot” when the officer shot him in the back.

The Obama administration’s investigation, however, found instead that Brown had raced  toward  the police officer and reached into his car in an effort to grab his gun. The officer shot Brown to stop him.

On March 17, 2015, after the Department of Justice released its findings on the Michael Brown shooting, Jonathan Capehart of the  Washington Post  posted this video  commentary , saying that the “hands up, don’t shoot” line turns out to be a false narrative.

Capehart says the “hands up, don’t shoot” line—although in actuality false—resonated because of the perceived reality of police brutality against unarmed Black men and boys.

Says Capehart: “It’s imperative we continue marching for, and giving voice to, those of us killed at the hands of police and others. But we must never allow ourselves to march under the banner of a false narrative on behalf of someone who would otherwise offend our sense of right and wrong.”

And yet now we have virtual worshipers from the Church of the Woke singing “hymns,” chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot.” This reminds me of the line attributed to G.K. Chesterton: “When a man stops believing in God, he doesn’t then believe in nothing, he believes anything.”

What a contrast are all myths, modern and ancient, when compared with the Gospel of Jesus Christ that is rooted in history. If Jesus had not bodily, literally, physically walked of His tomb, then Christianity would indeed be a myth. But He not only arose from the dead, but He appeared repeatedly to His disciples, providing them with “many infallible proofs” that He was alive.

Mason Weaver is an author and motivational speaker and a dedicated Christian. Many years ago, he had been involved in the Black Panthers. He thought hating the white man was the way to go. He personally experienced a racist attack at the hands of a fellow Navy seaman that almost killed him.

After Weaver was attacked in the early 1970s, he says, “I got out of the Navy, and I went to Berkeley, where I ran across other black men that hated America and they hated society, and they hated the principles of this country.  And we began to hate together, because you are who you associate with. But I had this emptiness in me.”

As Mason began to be consumed by hate and the desire for revenge, childhood memories of his Christian upbringing began to nudge his conscience. He began to realize the significance of Jesus having risen from the dead, which transformed His disciples.

In a television interview for D. James Kennedy Ministries, Mason said, “I began to look for God again. And what I discovered was, in searching for God, it came down to those disciples. Those disciples saw something, something they witnessed that changed their very characteristics. It changed who they were. You had cowardly, self-centered men…and all of a sudden, some incident happened, and they became bold warriors, not afraid of death any longer. They saw something.  It was the resurrection.”

Weaver adds, “And I had to recognize as an angry Black militant, speaking Swahili, who hung out with Black Panthers, I had to recognize that God Almighty was born of woman just for me…. He allowed His precious holy body to be nailed to their cross with me in mind, personally, my name…. He came out of the grave for me, went to heaven for me, and will come back for me. And when I finally recognized that Jesus Christ did not compromise with me, on the cross, I took a deep long breath.  I mean, when this happened, I took a deep long breath and said, ‘I can no longer compromise with Him in the world.’”

Mason Weaver discovered the Church of Jesus is based on historical facts, as opposed to the false narratives that stoked his hatred. Coming face to face with the reality of Jesus who is Truth Incarnate is what is needed for all us—including those of the Church of the Woke.

It’s something that rarely happens and most of the time the shooting was justified.  Clearly there are a few bad apples in any kind of organization including the police but it’s past time for the left to stop libeling our local police departments around the country and for BLM to care about black lives taken by criminals in the cities and by the abortionist as well.  We back the blue!

Considering Portland and Seattle for that matter likely not.  They are as committed far left as any place else in the country and they care more about ruling over rural and small town areas in the rest of their respective states than they do about fixing their own problems.

No matter how you look at it you knew where, when, what group of people have a tendency to do stupid.  Those areas are where first respondents focus.  Not because of a skin color but because there are people who are genuinely too stupid to be out in public.

When Biden becomes President, he would not send unidentified/paramilitary/thugs goons to instigate and agitate and escalate peaceful protests.

He is incompetent having been in Washington DC feeding the swamp for almost 50 years and accomplished none of the changes he’s now proposing.  He’s so sold out to China that his mouth is Chairman Zi’s cock holster!

Biden is a panderer and an appeaser. That is not leadership, that is incompetence at the highest level. He has no beliefs or convictions. He changes his views and opinions depending on how he determined how the wind blows. That is not leadership. Sometimes a leader has to things that are needed not things that are popular

Well said and right on. The irony is that the old man is so weak, senile, and brain dead that he couldn’t effectively run the government to impose his will upon us.  In our states and regions we can simply go on living as we are now and ignore his mandates upon us much like we did when Obama tried to transform us.
