As Rev. Ira Acree of Greater St. John Bible Church in Chicago should have discovered by now – and he has not – it’s always easier to blame others than to look at the problems in your own community
After serving as a race-baiter and instigator of violence for weeks following the death of Minneapolis recidivist criminal, George Floyd, Reverend Acree has finally admitted there’s a problem in Chicago. Unfortunately, it was after the death of a three-year-old black child who was ruthlessly gunned down over the weekend as a part of Chicago’s epidemic of black-on-black violence. And even more unfortunately, he still blames Donald Trump.
A precious three-year-old named Mekhi James was gunned down in Chicago over Father’s Day Weekend, which saw an astounding 104 people shot in non-police shootings. The bulk of these were gang-related and majority of victims were black. Additionally, the bulk of the perpetrators caught thus far were black.
Rev. Acree has been blaming the police for violence – and the president of the United States – and leading protests in the street against law enforcement (see below).
His posts in his social media blame Donald Trump and encourage racial disharmony (see below).
His post reads, “The two main reasons it looks like we’re on the brink of civil war: 1. Trump responded much too late to the Covid 19 pandemic, calling it a Democratic hoax. 2. He’s also fanned the flames of racism since taking office.”
As the Christian Post report, Acree admitted there’s a problem somewhere, but isn’t looking at Chicago inner-city gang culture.
The pastor said, “I could not pastor this community and not say something.”
The crowd comprised of neighbors of 3-year-old Mekhi James, who had been shot dead in the violent spree.
“We say black lives matter, but we’re here to say black baby lives matter more.”
Ironically, Acree is still advocating for politicians who promote the genocide of black people through abortion.
However, in the primary, Acree was a fan of Bernie Sanders.
Rev. Acree’s support for Democrats despite his recognition that “Black baby lives matter more” should be both mocked and derided. It is nonsensical and it is cognitively dissonant.
When evangelical leaders want to stop abortion, they then have a right to say that “black baby lives matter…”
