I grew up Catholic (now non-denominational Christian) and I don’t think I’ve ever heard that fasting from whiteness is what God calls us to do. More crazy leftist ideals are now prevalent in our churches.

This is one of many reasons I call myself a “non-denominational” Christian. Why would a BLM leader target churches and statues of Christ?

Wasn’t Jesus a man of color?

I’m pretty sure he wasn’t as “white” as I am.

Churches have gone crazy and this is just the latest example…

Jim Hoft has more…

A church in Oak Park, Illinois announced that they will not use “any music or liturgy written or composed by white people” during the Lenten season as they commit to “fasting from whiteness.”

First United Church of Oak Park in Illinois shared with their parishioners that they will not use any music or liturgy associated with White people. Instead, the church will utilize musical scores and liturgies from minorities and people of color.

“For Lent this year, First United is doing a mix of “giving something up” and “taking something on,” the church announced on the website.

“In our worship services throughout Lent, we will not be using any music or liturgy written or composed by white people. Our music will be drawn from the African American spirituals tradition, from South African freedom songs, from Native American traditions, and many, many more,” the announcement continued.

“For Lent, it is our prayer that in our spiritual disciplines we may grow as Christians, united in the body of Christ with people of all ages, nations, races, and origins,” the church concluded.

More from Fox News:

According to a report from Turning Point USA, the church also erected a sign promoting the racially-charged Lenten fast saying that it would be hosting worship services “around the voices of Black people, indigenous people, and people of color.”

Both the church office and head pastor John Edgerton, who is a White male, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.

The church is also reportedly promoting reflections that it calls “evotionals” which have supported the idea of “fasting from whiteness.”

In the section of the church website that explains its “values,” the church claims that its members support a covenant of practicing “inclusion” by “valuing people of all races, ethnicities, cultural identities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and abilities in every aspect of our congregational life.”

The church which is reportedly “fasting from whiteness” also describes itself as an “open and inclusive Christian Community.”

Thank You Jim!

The separation of church and state has evaporated in America. We live in a country where even satanic churches are the beneficiaries of leftist politics.

Jesus loves us all. He doesn’t care what color we are. He doesn’t care what Church we go to.

But it has become clear in America that not all Churches, and certainly not all politicians, love Jesus and understand that he was sent to unite us…
