Hey you can’t have a litmus test!! This is the Liberal mantra designed to corral us all into the pig pen of group think. It’s all done in the name of fairness, inclusiveness, sensitivity and all around ”Here’s how I want you to think,” political correct nonsense. The only people groups told that they can’t have a litmus test for their leaders are Christian conservatives.

I have attended black churches where “us and them” was preached in terms of overcoming white suppression on a regular basis.
