Priebus Must Resign as GOP Chairman

I have but one question to ask you? Do you take kindly to the very recent remarks from Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus calling Christian Republicans Old Testament heretics for not supporting same-sex marriage in America? He went on further to tell the GOP to modernize the party if they expect to win future national elections.

I am calling for you today to come together with me and the Black Robe Brigade to insist as both Christians and Republican voters that Chairman Priebus resign. His failures outnumber his accomplishments, unless of course you consider his abandonment of conservative voters who stand against same-sex marriage, and the attack against our 2nd Amendment accomplishments.

Many years ago, Steve Largent, a former Congressman and also an NFL teammate of mine with the Seattle Seahawks, talked about the GOP as being diverse, welcoming anyone. He went further to talk about the GOP as being like the newly delivered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and not a big tent. He said the deck of the carrier was large enough for diverse kinds of aircraft, but unlike the big tent, the ship was moving in one direction.

The Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, me and every one of you who professes the absolutes of God's Word. How is it we can allow the likes of Karl Rove, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and chairman Priebus to 'sweep' Christian voters under the rug? Where are the spirits of Ronald Reagan and Abraham Lincoln in America today? There is one man responsible for this disaster within the Republican Party and his name is Reince Priebus, because this betrayal has been directed from his desk in Washington, D.C.

It's one thing to be blind in one's loyalty, such as the African-American community following the Democratic Party like sheep to the slaughter. It's another thing to become blinded by those who would seek our demise, doing what elephants do best, and that is placing their trunks on the tails of those ahead of them, walking blindly. (But then again, we are the RNC!) This is exactly what Chairman Priebus has created for this once great political party and those millions of Christian people who voted for the likes of Ronald Reagan.

I don't understand why so many leaders in our party, both white and black seem to have problems expressing truth about how the RNC Chairman is damaging the party. Can you believe we offered Lady Gaga, a woman who vehemently hates our party, $1 million to entertain us at the last Republican Convention? I would have done it for $500,000 and I would have worn a rib eye suit! Maybe it has something to do with the $10 million dollars out there the RNC is using to attract certain minorities to the party. Some groups are unwilling to stand for what's right for the country out of fear of losing revenue. My question is this: Is the $10 million more important than standing for righteousness?

I am asking you to join forces with me and demand Chairman Priebus immediately resign. He has joined forces with those in the White House, media, and within the halls of Congress declaring war on our biblical foundations. Would you who are pastors consider your homes and churches big tents, giving an open podium to denounce our faith, and rewrite God's Holy Word? It's time for you to stand up and join forces with me and the Black Robe Brigade here and be unashamed of the Gospel in our nation.
