    Politicians obviously don't know the teaching of God's Word on crowns — we wear fur hats (and mink coats) for His glory!

    WCBS Newsradio 880 • Fur Industry & 100 Pastors Push Back Against Proposed Ban In New York City

    Spokesman for the 100 pastors, Mount Neboh Baptist Church Harlem's "Rev. Dr. Johnnie M. Green, Jr. says the fur industry is an important part of African American tradition, history and experience. 'Fur has given black people standing, fortitude and strength in the face of bigotry, injustice and intolerance throughout history,' the pastor said in a statement. 'In today’s churches many women and some men wear fur. Many do not. It is their choice whether to wear fur, as it should be.' He tells WCBS 880’s Steve Scott that fur has long been a mark of economic status in the black community, dating as far back to the Harlem Renaissance."

    "fur has long been a mark of economic status in the black community" Hummmmm, great Christian principle there - couldn't possibly cause disunity in the body or anything like that :) Then there is that other thing, pride. Seems like things seen in most churches.

    I look at the historical context. Churches were about the only place where Blacks could be treated with respect and pride. How Blacks carried themselves in church would be seen in many circumstances outside church walls as being "uppity".

    Has anyone ever noticed that the Left is about nothing but banning things? I mean, as of late you have them banning "So help me God" from the oath of office in the House, skyscrapers, cows, airplanes, plastic straws, meat, guns, the combustible engine, large sodas, Huckleberry Finn, statues of founding fathers and confederate soldiers, Kate Smith's rendition of "God Bless America," butter, Chic-Fil-A, and now furs.

    They have nothing to do except to go around and demonstrating the kind of Marxist, Stalinist, police-state that would exist if they had their hands on the levers of power.
