Somebody is trying to make black men look bad. They either gay, feminist or don't like that a black man is president.

I see where you are going with that argument, but...
-Who are the "Somebody"? And what's so "bad" about black gay or feminist men? If Black history is EVER really taught accurately, then we'd ALL know things like an openly black gay man (Bayard Rustin) was the Chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. I don't think theres an open conspiracy against black men like we think it is.
Anyway, I just think that it's not wise for a man to physically hurt or assault a woman or anyone else for that matter. It's not a judgement call, because everybody's human. That said, it's always best ask, "Is it worth it?" Just take a deep breath, count to ten or walk away for a while, and if things get worse, never be afraid to ask for assistance.

Sin is not a color. It is the foolish Christian who promotes the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes. This has absolutely nothing to do with Satans attack upon black men.The horror that this story speaks of is that the Church is being weakened in the US. All of the saints know that God hates divorce. If the biggest names in the Church are divorced what will that do to the rest of us. We need to pray for the family. Lord bless Benjamin and Debra and visit them. Show them YOUR healing power again. Remind them of YOUR unconditional love. That even in this time of stress YOU love them and want the best for them. In the name of JESUS i pray. Amen.

There seems to be a feeling among some men now a days that it's alright to solve problems by physical means. Using force in front of children scars them and teaches that this is how their spouse should treat them. Because he is internationally famous shouldn't but him any slack.

Thank you, thank you and thank you for speaking intelligently about this matter. I'm very tired of the African American communities being so homophobic and preaching hate and promoting an archaic view of marriage and relationships. It is not okay under any circumstances to put your hands on another person...for all the devoted Christians, WWJD is what I have to say to you...Jesus would not push a woman or anybody for that matter.

There seems to be a feeling that it is ok for women to hit men. Women have the violence against women act to empower them to have a man put in jail or prison, even in cases where the violence is imagined. I have seen women slap thier husband or boyfriend about his face and head. I have seen women hit men in the crotch. All of this while police stand there laughing at the man. Yet, when the man raises his arm(s) or hand(s) to defend himself, the police THEN decide to step in and try to break the man's arms putting him in handcuffs and taking him to jail while the woman is allowed to get away with assault.

I have also seen women get all in a man's face and scream hysterically at him while feeling like they have a right to even touch him. How much does anyone expect a man to take, before it is too much? If a woamn hits you even one time, she will do it again and again and, eventually she will kill you.

I always keep the Body of Christ who are in the "limelight" in prayer because satan desires to sift us all as wheat but them especially because his goal is for us to bring mockery and reproach to The Holy Name of The Lord Jesus Christ!!! Let's keep this in prayer and ask The Father God to do the rest. Love to all the Winans!!!

God's Word gives us all the answers. There are right and wrong in there if we care to do HIS will. He loves us just the way we are but HE does not ever intend for us to stay that way. That's why He offers to live inside of us and lead our lives daily through the Holy Spirit. Everything is not good but God is good!!!

Religion is a bunch of hokedoke. Religious people will preach and sing about what not to do, while they do the same thing behind closed doors. They tell you not to get a divorce (let god heal your marriage), then they get divorce; they tell you to be faithful to your spouse (or you're going to hell) and they sneek and peek and have affairs; they tell you to turn off the playboy channel (because it is sin), when they just renewed their subscription; they tell you not to physically abuse your spouse, while they push theirs down on the ground and make them in fear of bodily injury.

My prayers go out to BeBe his wife and his family. This is a new way of life for them. I know been there done that. They need to seek counseling so that they can save there family and become friends again.In couseling they will get the understanding that it is not about them it's about the children who will suffer from this. It does not matter who is right or wrong it's about setting a stable ground for the family and also what God said in his word. Man must alway pray and ask for God to guide there way. Please no matter what it takes remember your children are in the middle they love you both. Don't make them have to choose who they love more.

Lifting you in prayer
