<quoted text>I am not going to give my opinion on this church or it's preacher. However, as a resident of East Tennessee I am hoping not to hear about anymore of his sermons going viral! He should be respectful of our area and stop bringing negative national attention to it. Is that too much to ask?
Sweets,

It wasn't his fault. It was an atheist on an atheist web site trying to give himself attention by attacking Christians is why this went viral. The atheist wouldn't have found out about it if some offended person wouldn't have told the atheist about it.

That's weird isn't it? Someone that would refer to themselves as a Christian would rather go to an atheist than to do what the Scripture says (Matthew 18:11-20) when there is a disagreement with those in the household of faith.

Thanks for you concern,

That just shows you don't know what you are talking about. I know I am a heinze 57 child. That doesn't mean I'm going to condone the wrong and condemn the Scriptures because of what some past relative did contrary to the Word of God. Jesus told us in His Word, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28.) You don't have to carry your baggage of past sin around. Just come to Jesus Christ and He will give you rest and inner peace.
They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.(Matthew 9:12b-13)
You do not know what you are talking about. Another ignorant southern white...whites were primitive practicing human sacrifice in Germany and had Julius Ceaser and the Romans had not taught your ancestors to come out of the caves and learn how to make fire...you guys will be primitive running around and practicing human sacrifice and eating raw flesh.

I know you are trying to find a loop hole, but there are no contradictions in the Word of God.
A person that is having sex with someone other than the person of the opposite sex that they are married to are in the same shape as those having sex with a member of the same sex. They are both adulterers and/or fornicators.
There is no loophole...Genesis 10:7 White Americans are a mistake...should not exist...Donny Reagan and Clarification should not exist. End of Story.

George,
All mankind is the product of sin. There are none that can save himself. That is why we needed a Savoir. Jesus Christ and paid the debt that He did not owe and we could not pay. The fall in the Garden sold us out to sin.
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.(Psalms 51:5)
The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.(Psalms 14:2-3.)
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.(Romans 3:10-12.)
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.(Romans 8:8.)
God Bless You
So keep moving the goalpost as you please and then say it is from God? White Americans are a product of the violation of tenets laid out at the Tower of Babel...not the pureblooded Koreans, not the pure Chinese, not the pure Japanese...it is the white Americans.

George you are confusing Clarification because his racist preacher has told his followers that if you believe in William Branham and you don't mix races, you will receive special favors in heaven! Oh and if you are female a dress code may also be required! The brainwashing continues! LMAO
Genesis 10:7...White Americans (intermarrying among various language groups), Afrikaaners of South Africa (mixture of French, German and Dutch), Soviets (mixture of everything from Armenian to Latvian...nothing in common other than skin color) and of course the English (mixture of Danes, French and German...more in common than the Soviets but the Germanics are very different from the French)...all violation of God's law at the Tower of Babel where He confused the languages and did not intend for them to disappear....and there may be a reason...let us not forget that these four groups are responsible for more than 50% of all misery in the modern world...three of them involving human trafficking and slavery from the 15th century and the fourth the Soviets? committed genocide in Ethiopia, Eritrea and Namibia among others. Then we have Hitler...he had Jewish blood lines and had Monglian blood as well...

So Donny Reagan, Clarification and most white Americans are a product of the violation of the Old Testament Bible...Genesis 10:7...Clarification can be an apologist and claim that man is a product of sin...and we should not sin anymore saying whites should not marry blacks. Why? Telling the truth that the existence of white Americans as a product of sin may sell in India or Korea, but wont sell here...and you need money...telling blacks and whites should not mix sells especially in the deep south but also elsewhere. It is just like even the very conservative churches these days wont condemn sex outside marriags..which is in the New Testament, not the Old that Clarification seems to be quoting...but it wont sell because 90% of Americans are guilty of this...however, gays are a minority...so go after gays and next go after biracial babies...it sells..

The only problem I have with the pastor is that he is a wutsy...makes general statements..if he really is a man of conviction he should condemn conservatives marrying outside the race...start by openly attacking Clarence Thomas, but also attack Michelle Malkin and Tamera Mowery in your sermons and let the rest of the world hear it.

Well, I am black, African and Kenyan, and highly educated too by contemporary standards... but that is not the point. The point is that, naturally, I would be expected to be offended by the gist of Pastor Donny Reagan sermon, which by the broad interpretations prevailing online, would seem to put my black race in bad light.
But somebody wise once said not to condemn a man without first hearing him, something that I think most reactionaries to this 'racist' sermon have not cared to do.
For my part I have done more than merely that, I have even gone back to all the sermons Donny Reagan largely quoted from, sermons preached by the late Pentecostal Evangelist, William Branham around the middle of the last century, which are easily available in the internet by search.
I don't hold brief for Pastor Donny, never met him, and I am not a recipient of the aid his Church allegedly disburses to black churches worldwide, and in terms of age, I am much younger and belong to a different generation from his... but in the name of sincerity, I must say that I find no offense in this man. At least not enough to qualify him as the most racist pastor in America.
And I don't seem to think that having a conviction that negates biracial marriages is necessarily mutually equivalent to being a racist. In the part of the world where I come from, and I readily agree it is not as socially evolved (depending on your definition) as the U.S.A. and therefore pretty conservative, white folk are held in generally high esteem, mainly because of historic reasons dating back to the pre-independent (or if politically correct, colonial) era of our region. As such, being white almost automatically earns you special deference in hotels and indeed almost everywhere. But, hold it, the most discomfiting and devastating news that parents would ever hear is that their daughter is marrying a white person! This is a classic case of respect coexisting with restraint, I'd think. Lesson 1: Pastor Donny may not even be racist at all, only politically incorrect!
Having said that, I also wish to posit this thought for all of us to ponder. How comes only 4% of Americans approved of biracial marriage in as recently as 1958, and an overwhelming 87% by 2000? Were the Americans of 50 years ago, who practically invented (or at least laid the foundation for) practically all the technology we use today that daft so they could not see the merits of biracial matrimony which we have recently discovered? What assurance do we have that the dynamics that have altered our perceptions so overwhelmingly in the last few years on a motley of social issues including nudism, homosexuality, same sex marriages, ad infinitum are a sign of civilization, and not regression?
The most amazing bit, even christian believers and pastors play along to the gallery of the tide of political correctness without a care in the world about what their Bible says about the issues catalogued above. I would at least have expected some American Christian caucuses to stand with their fellow pastor, at least until the horizon clears. Anybody that would readily apologize for hurting folks as Pastor Reagan has reportedly already done, is not very far from the Kingdom of God!

Donny has not done half as much as the God of the Old Testament did by expressly forbidding the Jews intermarrying with other races. Just a thought, really. And thanks all for your patience.

You call this guy America's most racist preacher? Sure, he is wacky and full of crap, but have you listened to the "Reverends" Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson? Now that is some real racism in action. Donny Reagan has a church with a private voluntary audience, and if you don't want to listen to him nobody is forcing you to. But Al and Jess have a captive American public audience and their racist crap is being force fed to us.

Really? You ought to work this through ...

"a captive American public audience" "being force fed to us"

"and if you don't want to listen to him (Pastor Reagan) nobody is forcing you to"

For them (Jackson and Sharpton), who is forcing you to listen??

When Jackson and Sharpton use Jesus to oppose interracial marriage, your assertions will have credibility.
