Is Our Ebola Strategy being shaped on the fly?

I took a plane flight this past weekend and I took plastic gloves annd disinfectant wipes to clean the tray tables and the armrest, but I knew that was an act of spitting in the wind. Ebola is here and we don’t seem to know how to handle it. the government seems more reactive than proactive. Health care workers are complaining about a lack of protocol. The government seems to be in some kind of paralytic stupor. The talking heads they send out can’t offer comfort because they know this is more than they can handle. We need a plan and not platitudes. This is not going to get better until someone comes up with a actual plan that is not predicated on reaction. Are we expecting too much from our government?

Juan McFarland, Alabama pastor admits to having AIDs and sleeping with members

I read the linked story today and I am left shaking my head. So many people love and trust their pastor, and more often than not that trust is deserved. When your pastor asks you to have sex with him please note he is not a man of God. He is simply a man looking for a hookup, but if only that was the only problem. Pastor Juan McFarland admitted in the pulpit to multple hookups, misuse of church funds, and he has AIDS. The congregation is reeling and he has been fired, but is that enough? If a pastor misuses church funds shouldn’t there be some legal ramifications? What are the women left to do that slept with him? Why did they sleep with him? This is a sad story. There are no winners but there is a villian and his name is Juan.

Steve Harvey’s partenership with Paula Deen has upset some people

“I just know the good in her. That’s all I know. And it outweighs the bad by a landslide,” — Steve Harvey on his new collaboration with Paula Deen.
Steve Harvey is officially on the COON train.

A friend of mine posted this on his Facebook page. Paula Deen admitted to using the N-word last year and she saw sponsors run from her like she had the plague. She has spent the last year rebuilding her brand. Steve harvey reached out to her and has made her a mentor to boys that he mentors through his foundation. He has forgiven her and he has put action to his words. Many in the black community are questioning the wisdom of this decision but what do you think? Should Paula Deen be mentoring young black boys?

When did preaching become entertainment?

When I grew up the preachers preached hard, worked up a sweat, christened babies, buried the dead and encouraged the living. They lived in the world of black and white, gray areas did not exist and living on the edge simply meant you were on your way to hell. These preachers were the pre-WWJD generation. For them it was not a question they already knew what he would do, say and they would tell you what he would say about your life. They were not right all the time, but they felt a calling on their lives. Their center stage was often at the front of a storefront. What made them bearable was they were sincere in their beliefs. They would come to the pulpit in their robes or their gray, blue, black or brown suits. Piety was often a way of life not just a word in the dictionary. Now we see preachers ready to strut and wait for their close ups. Preaching is big business. It’s lights, camera action. It’s about getting more in the door not necessarily getting more souls closer to the Great “I AM”. We are in the age of the Preachers of LA and soon to be released the Preachers of Detroit. We will see them flaunt their wealth as they spout well worn platitudes. It is a new day but is it a better day? Share your thoughts.
