Social Justice Pastor Confuses Congregation With Anti-American Pro-Immigration Sermon
Rev. Henry Beaman, pastor of Unity Church of Boston left his congregation befuddled on the Sunday before Independence Day. In many churches across America there is plenty of red, white, and blue in the clothing, in the songs, and in the sermons. But not at Beaman's church. He is a social justice warrior, which means he focuses his services on the down-trodden by centering his messages on the social issues of the day, drawing from popular authors and sometimes the Bible to make his point.
But on this Sunday before the July 4th celebration his hearers struggled to keep up. Rev. Beaman used the first 10 minutes of his sermon to slam what he called the 'worship of America', speaking against President Trump, patriotism, and appreciation of American history. For the last half of the sermon he talked about how we should loosen up our immigration laws, welcome the foreigner, and at all cost help those who are coming from horrible homelands to enjoy the blessings of our great land.
The congregation was visible shaken. Long-time attendee Sherry Phipps tried to make sense of it. "I think the pastor was basically saying that people from all over the world risk their lives and the lives of their family to leave everything they have ever known to come to a nation that continues a history of racist and greedy mistreatment of people. And even though it is set up to hurt those in need, we should do everything in our power to help these refugees come to our horrible country. Trust me... it's only confusing if you think about it."
The reverend says that he is not the only pastor preaching the confusing and controversial message on the Sunday before the great American holiday. "There are thousands of us willing to publicly spit in the eye of the American beast."
As of this posting, none of these preachers have been arrested, flogged, or fined for their inflammatory speeches. Meanwhile 128 Christian pastors in China were rounded up today and imprisoned for preaching the Bible to underground churches.
