Dr. Alveda C. King’s Perspective: Four years ago, during the long hot summer before Mr. Barack Hussein Obama was elected as the “first black president of the United States of America,” I remember being distraught because prophets and pundits were predicting his election.

One friend dreamed of Mr. Obama wearing a medical jacket and carrying a stethoscope. We later realized that God was revealing that the president would use healthcare as a wedge into the voting communities.

Friends, I was angry with God, and that was a dangerous position for me to be in. God had revealed to me that due to His hand of judgment on America, Mr. Obama would be the next president. I just couldn’t stand the thought of that.

It took the God ordained wisdom of a fellow prophetic voice in the person of my good friend and fellow warrior Pastor Clennard Childress to calm me down.

I remember him saying: “Alveda, only God can use one vessel, one man to shine light on two of the most demonic forces we battle today in the 21st century. Racism and abortion will come to the forefront with this presidency because Barack Obama will be the most abortion-minded president America has ever known. On the other hand, racism will come out of the closet because some people will resent having a black face in the White House.”

As it turns out, Pastor Childress is right. President Obama’s abortion agenda is unprecedented. Then too, there is the flip side of the anti-Christ/anti-procreation agenda which President Obama also promotes.

Abortion along with his homosexual marriage agenda are the two most effective forces against natural marriage and procreation. Face it friends, two men or two women engaged in sexual liaisons, and mothers who abort or surgically and chemically prevent conception are much less likely to birth babies.

And let’s not forget racism.

Sadly, there are self-proclaimed Christians praying that God will take President Obama. Now, I know that David prayed for God to dispense his enemies in the Old Testament, but after Christ came into the earth and died at Calvary and ascended to Heaven as our High Priest, we now have the privilege of praying for our leaders in authority and would be wise to pray that God transform the president rather than take him from us.

Having said that, I’d like to remind us that we must pray on our knees for relief from ungodly leaders. When we get up from our knees, we should go to the ballot box and vote for life, natural marriage and family, deliverance from forces that are destroying our health, economy, educational system, etc.

As a 21st century guardian of the King Family Legacy, I’m reminded of what my Uncle M. L. wrote in the previous century in his “Letter From a Birmingham Jail.” He spoke of the most segregated hour in America, that being Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m.

Friends, it’s time to come together regardless of ethnicity, church denomination, economic status, political party affiliation and other distinctions that divide us rather than unite us.

The blood of the innocents is crying from the ground. The earth is groaning under the injustices. Natural procreation is under attack. We must pray and ask God to help us according to 2 Chronicles 7:14 — “If my people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray . . . ”

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She is a pastoral associate and director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father’s church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read more reports from Dr. Alveda C.
