A Southern Pastor Just Trolled Trump Fans With The Perfect Church Sign

Rev. Michael R. Jordan of the New Era Baptist Church posted a sharp reminder to his parish that will hopefully cause some consternation and self-reflection in the heavily conservative state.

Fed up with President Trump’s outrageous xenophobia and its blind acceptance by his supporters, Rev. Jordan made his feelings clear with his church sign:

“There’s a covert expectation by even poor whites of white privilege. They feel like even if they’re illiterate, skin color should give them privilege. Even if they are an illiterate, they feel superior to a black president with a Harvard degree. What interrupted that was a black president and immigrants. Trump plugged in on that. He’s talking basically about let’s get white males in charge. That was the covert message of this campaign. Everything to poor whites was Obama’s fault. They feel that because they’re white they should get privileges” said Jordan to AL.com.

Jordan hasn’t always been so progressive – he caused headlines around the country when he posted a message on the same sign that read “AIDS is God’s curse on a homosexual life” in 2004.

Despite his earlier bigotry, there’s no denying that his assessment of the Trump phenomenon isn’t accurate. Trump made promises to his voters that he can’t possibly keep, and exploited the undercurrents of white resentment and racial division to get elected. Now we’re paying the price for that deception – and Trump voters will be hit worst of all.
