It might be one thing for a church to remove an American flag from its sanctuary on the grounds that nowhere in Scripture are congregations commanded to put on display in the house of the Lord a symbol of their earthly political or cultural loyalty.
So if national identity is something to be downplayed in an ecclesiastical environment in order to emphasize the unity of believers in Christ, don't turn around and conduct a Black History worship service especially on Sunday morning.
For there is no more authorizing that in the pages of Scripture if a congregation is going to take such a hardline stance in opposition to Old Glory.
If the pastor of such a congregation is on the record as stating that his congregation is neither Black nor White but rather “diverse, does the congregation intend to also hold a White History worship service?
Or does the pastor's concept of diversity consist largely of badgering Whites such as when from the pulpit he justified support for Black Lives Matter, demanding that Whites because they are White surrender property to Blacks simply for being Black and participated in the town BLM protest march while wearing a shirt emblazoned with the church's logo?
