Education cannot replace the impact of a mother, father and bible teaching church on a young persons life. Parents and churches need to help children and youth take ownership of their problems rather than always blaming the white man for keeping them down. If they own their education, character and problems, then they will address them. If they keep shifting blame because they cannot face their own failures then they will stay poor and in their current state. Obama, Holder, Rev. AL and the race baiters and the LSM are all contributing to the fiction that black people in poor neighborhoods are the victims of the white man keeping them down. The insidiousness of this is that they are the ones keeping them in bondage in order to get their votes. If racism is keeping blacks down, then why do Nigerian immigrants do so well economically when they come here? It is because they were raised in stable, 2 parent homes, grew up in a good educational system and learned to work hard to be successful.
They also need to shame those who are making and having babies without being married. Poverty and destructive male behavior can be correlated to the break down of the home. We need to stop paying women to have babies. When she has her baby, she needs to name a father and hold him financially responsible for his little fling. If she wont name the father, then she forfeits welfare and food stamps. That which gets rewarded gets repeated. Stop rewarding people for having babies out of wedlock. Force the mother and father to take responsibility for the child, to raise him/her with love and discipline. Then get the local churches to actually get involved in their communities teaching morality and how to solve their own problems rather than demanding that the government come and dump a bunch of money into the situation.
Obama, Holder, the LSM, Rev. Al and other race hustlers are all working very hard to start a race war. Everything they do has been to make blacks feel like victims and to make whites look like racist bigots. Once we realize this is their aim, everything else makes complete sense. The only question is, why are they doing this?
He is just following the Rules for Radicals script. * RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.) * RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.) * RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)

Yes, Jesus brought both peace and a sword; division and unity. The thing that divides should be whether we embrace Christ or not. In the Jewish culture of Jesus' day, embracing Christ as the Messiah would bring division within a family. The same thing is happening today in families all over the world. When a Jew, Hindu or Muslim come to Christ, it brings division in the home and can even mean death for the person leaving their religion. I know several people who have gone down that painful road. Large group meetings on liberal college campuses are different than church worship services. When discussing a controversial issue in a large group, it can easily turn into a mob mentality where people stop thinking and react emotionally. Rather than being persuaded, they dig in deeper into their beliefs. Part of the reason for this is that a speech or a sermon is a one way conversation. The younger generation needs to be able to challenge and push back on ideas in order to embrace them. It is more of a Socratic approach.

I and II Corinthians were written to the church not to the unbeliever. What would be offensive about those books? II Corinthians 5 is a great passage on the privilege the Lord has given us to be involved in the ministry of reconciliation. That is what CCC is all about.

i agree. However, the gospel is very offensive to people. CCC doesn't water it down or sugar coat it. Telling post-modern, relativistic students who believe all roads lead to heaven, that Jesus is the only way to God is very offensive. CCC's goal is to not make the gospel more offensive than it already is. Let nonbelievers be turned off by the message of Christ not other issues that are important, but are secondary to a persons salvation.

You are obviously a deep thinker - eye roll. Calling people idiots and Pansy's takes no thought at all.

That is a good point. I am not sure what the problem would have been without being in the crowd.
