If one wants to know the origin of hate in this country, one does not need to veer very far from leaders of some Evangelical churches like the Second Baptist Church of Houston's leader Dr. Ed Young. He made derogatory statements about Democrats, many of who are in his congregation. They must force him out for creating discord and hate speech. He has the right to say as he pleases but as the leader of a Megachurch lyingly calling fire is dangerous and can be deadly.

Dr. Ed Young, leader of Second Baptist Church of Houston hates Democrats

KHOU 11 reported the following.

HOUSTON -- Mega church Pastor Dr. Ed Young called Democrats "some kind of religion that is basically godless" during an impromptu speech at Congressman John Culberson's election watch party Tuesday night.

Dr. Young declined KHOU 11 News' interview requests for explanation.

His comments came after Rep. Culberson's concession speech. Members of the crowd asked Dr. Young to lead a closing prayer. Before doing so, Dr. Young spoke. He told a story about a Pennsylvania man kicked out the Democratic Party for being too radical in a religious comment posted on Facebook.

"That, ladies and gentlemen, is what we're up against," Dr. Young told the crowd. "It's no longer a party. It's some kind of religion that is basically God-less and as long as America, and this is represented by every Democrat I know, does not believe in the sacredness of the life in the mother's womb God will not bless America or make us a great nation."

If that isn't hate-speech with the potential to incite, I don't know what is. This pastor was mad that his candidate did not win. Whatever happened to the separation between state and religion?

Ironically these types of preachers continue to support a party with policies that kill. This man lives in a state where the party he supports kills 3500+ Texans by not accepting the Medicaid Expansion to the Affordable Care Act. He supports a party who through its austerity measures designed to enrich a few with tax cuts, hurts people. His hypocrisy and hates should be rewarded with the abandonment of his church.
