lies lies lies. they tell people in coloroldo where they came from that the "black" mayor is in the klu klux clan and that the only other opposition is the whites and they are all white supremacist racists. It's amazing to me how they get away with all of those lies.

And I have yet to understand why the "former" black mayor of Selma supports them except that he is a sore loser that lost the mayoral election because HE was in fact racist against whites and a micro-manager who got in such a deep depression after he lost that many thought he was going to kick the bucket. Again, they float him around and stroke his weakened ego to the point of brainwashing him also. They also think they can get that racist Perkins re-elected and that he will promote them in this City, but what he doesn't realize is that a large portion of the blacks and whites in Selma think he's nuts for following them.

Nothing like the first black mayor of Selma joining a friggin' cult. The black race can be proud! No, what they can be proud is is that they have made significant progress over the last 50 years here in the united states and particularly the south and that whites and blacks want to work together to build and keep a great community and city and they have a black mayor in office that is fair, honest and just. Plus he is so much more of a tactful and diplomatic leader than the previous mayor.

What Perkins doesn't realize is that the Freedom Foundation is going to just guarantee that Perkins will lose in the next election because everyone sees through their lies and also sees that he has went off the deep end.

There is no freedom in "The Freedom Foundation" (should be called the Freedom Oppressors)

There is no God in "The House of God" cult (the name of their original and still active church but also their sister church here called "Selma Community Church"

There is nothing real in "Real Talk" (their radio program)

They are most definitely NOT the only non-segregated group/church/theater production company in town (more proof of their lies and propaganda)

James Perkins is NOT the first and ONLY black mayor of Selma (as the denver based cult portrayed him to be recently)

Mayor George Evans is definitely black and definitely NOT in the klu klux klan as they are portraying him to be to ease their emotions about why he doesn't support them.
wow so many OTHER LIES that time and space do not permit.

how about this for cult purposes

1. leave your family and friends and cut off ties except for other cult members only
2. quit your job and sell your possessions and move across the country and be completely controlled by your church
3. the majority of the group that moved lives in communal housing (yet another cult sign)
4. they split up families and cause divorces within the group starting when one of the spouses want to get out of the cult, they start working on the one to stay even paying for and encouraging the divorce..

That's just the very tip of the iceberg folks!!!

Did You hear that, the standard is that the ministry would not be an offense. And when You're ministering to someone, You've got to live it. It's offensive to God. Paul said what? That there's got to be no hypocrisy, why, among You. Why didn't someone preach this to me when I was in Seminary? I can tell You why. Nobody was living it! Why weren't they preachin what Malcom X was preachin? You know why? Because Martin Luther King and them were NOT living it. They weren't.

Isn't modern technology wonderful?
mark duke was so brilliant that he could singlehandedly direct, re-direct and
impress all those Fortune 500 companies to the point where "he never had to look for a job- the head hunters came looking for me" and yet he was stupid enough to record for posterity all the rants and ravings of his true beliefs and intentions and his contempt for any and all of those very people he professed to come to save from their third world enslavement.
Could he actually believe that his recorded words would never reach beyond the faithful sheep (we don't want no goats) of his flock and expose him for the charlatan he has proved himself to be?

I know this question was posed before, but why does the other Freedom Foundation forum (the one with over 16,000 posts) not show up on the Selma topix list? Anyone recall the answer to the question or is there no answer??????

"The statements about the FF are untrue. These derogatory statements are only made by people who do not believe in social and economic justice for all people and are attempting to tarnish the discussion. The group has been attacked and slandered with the beginning of their arrival in Selma and association with members of the AA community. I am not saying the FF is perfect, but the continuous attempt to slander the group is old and lack substance. Any links to validate the position of the opposition is a fabricated attempt to sway the discussion. As of this day there has been no real evidence to verify the charges made my some of the citizens of Selma against this group. The FF have not been ran out of Selma. More importantly they were represented in the number of very few Caucasian residents of Selma that participated in the 2011 commemoration of the Selma to Montgomery march."

Please tell me what you would consider "real evidence"---
are the tapes with dukes voice not evidence? are they "fabricated"?
why are there no glowing accounts of all their good works from anyone other than their own members? do you condone the bragging about being honored by the President of the United Staes for your volunteer work knowing that those awards are purchased for a mere $4,75 and anyone can purchase and award themselves with them? Is that not deception ( Heaven forbid the FF would be deceptive!)
How about their ( your) website that continues to show the fiasco of the Teppers bldg. as an ongoing, soon to be completed project and the Youth Institute it still claims to be housed there? Deception??
Do you actually think so many people would have spent the last 3 years trying to get the truth out if it were NOT the truth?
You need to come up with a better argument than just saying we are trying to tarnish the discussion.

ANOTHER PRESIDENTIAL AWARD IN THE MAKING??

From the bragsheet:
"Dancing to the popular song “Dynamite” has never been so historic.

At the Jubilee bridge-crossing for the 46th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, three civil rights legends approached the corner where the dancing, energetic, and integrated youth and adults marching with the Freedom Foundation were gathered on Alabama Avenue and Broad Street in Selma, Alabama.

We were “dancing the dream,” as the youth say, and showing our appreciation for all who participated in one of the defining moments of the civil rights movement. Nothing could possibly have meant more to us in that moment than for those who put their bodies on the line for the movement to join our dance.

And that’s exactly what happened.

Congressman John Lewis, Jesse Jackson, and Sheyann Webb Christburg, who were all helping lead the annual march, broke away and joined in our joy. Congressman John Lewis in particular broke it down.

Watch the video below to see Jackson, Lewis, and Webb “light it up like it’s dynamite.”
break"

To the FF:
Please define "Historic"

This is old but may be enlightening to some new readers or at least pique their curiousity.

"We are sincerely asking Mark Duke, Ronald, Gwen, Shawn and other members of the House of God cult to please stop threatening local people who disagree with them. We were appalled that these "Christian" people on their radio program talked about marching and boycotting local businesses and going to visit certain people who disagree with them. THE SOONER MARK DUKE AND HIS CULT LEAVE SELMA THE BETTER OFF THE CITY WILL BE AND THE GREATER POSSIBILITY THERE WILL BE OF UNIFYING THE CITY.

We urge everyone to go to www.ffhog.com and read the recent posts. We also urge everyone to go to www.wewillfindthetruth.com and read the last 2 posts by Allan McConnell of Watchman Fellowship, one of the most respected cult authorities in the country. You will be appalled at the emails posted there and SEE HOW GWEN AND SHAWN TRIED TO BREAK UP THE MARRIAGE OF RENEE WINDOWS AND HER HUSBAND. The most despicable thing the cult does is break up marriages and break up families by alienating children from parents. There are so many sad stories posted on the web of grieving parents whose children have been sucked into this cultist lie of Mark Duke.

It is not surprising that Duke is using Ronald to front a church for the local House of God members-the old Christian church building at the corner of Selma and Franklin. Ronald has NO training to be a pastor other than being anointed by Duke. BEFORE HE BECAME "RELIGIOUS" RONALD HAD ROBBED AT LEAST ONE BANK WITH HIS BROTHER, who has been anointed to be a pastor. Some of that mentality is coming out as Mark and Ronald verbally attack Randy Williams and local pastors who dare question their cultist habits.

WE CERTAINLY ARE NOT MAKING ANY THREATS AGAINST DUKE AND HIS FOLLOWERS, but we are giving him some helpful free advice that one day he may go to the wrong door or confront the wrong person with his belligerent, self-righteous attitude. Duke is mostly phony sweetness on the radio, but he is a mean-spirited, evil, threatening cult leader when confronting those in private who disagree with him.

The next time he and his bank robbing friend and/or "spiritual live-in" threatens another pastor in this town, we will name names and may have something to say about boycotts and marches of our own!!"

I use the word dancing although just gyrating or gesticulating may be a better description.
