This is the very last day of 2014. What a tumultuous yet victorious year it has been. What with Ferguson, Staten Island, ISIS, rumors of wars, untold greed, poverty. Oh my goodness! Yet all is not lost! As I declare this truth, and while I have some “New Year’s resolutions,” I also have some “New Year’s affirmations.”

First, I affirm that Jesus is truly Lord! For me that’s self explanatory.

Second, Black lives matter; all lives matter. It the midst of the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, the notorious Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest and most wealthy abortion provider, picked up the slogan, black lives matter. The resounding outcry of outrage against their hypocrisy is still resonating. How can the organization help slaughter over 55 million babies legally, with nearly one-third of their victims being black babies, and then proclaim that black lives matter?

Yes, much attention has been given to this mantra this year. Most recently a bold affirmation from Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, an African-American law official, told CNN, “When I hear these things — that black lives matter, the only people who really believe that statement are American police officers who go into American ghettos every day to keep people from killing each other.

Look, the abortions? If black lives, if they really mattered, that’s where the outrage would be that’s where we’d see protests.” He also tweeted to a New York Times reporter, “If only these faux protesters were asked by media about all the black on black killing or black babies aborted in US every year.”

Yes Sheriff Clark. Thank you for speaking truth to power!
