BRUTHA'S ALBUM RELEASES TODAY




Just when you thought good R&B music was dead, a group or singer comes along and rekindles your hope. The new R&B group is called BRUTHA and comprises of five Los Angeles-based biological brothers -- Anthony, Jared, Jacob, Cheyenne (aka “Papa”) and Grady. They are extremely talented and each member can actually sing. In fact, I have not heard such harmonizing since the Motown days.

For the past few weeks, BET has chronicled the brothers’ journey to stardom in a reality show entitled, Brothers to Brutha. The group is managed by their uncle, Donny “Drano” Harrell, CEO of Goodfellas Entertainment, and signed to Island Def Jam by the late Shakir Stewart. The first episode shows the brothers preparing to audition for Jermaine Dupri in Atlanta. The final episode will air tonight at 10:00 pm. Click here to watch archives of the show.

Brutha’s first album will be released today. I am encouraging all my readers, if you can, to support them by purchasing their album. I would love for them to sell at least 1 million albums today. It would be a great Christmas gift to a great group of talented brothers and their family. I wish them much success.

OBAMA UNDER FIRE AGAIN FOR HIS CHOICE




According to CNN.com, President-elect Barack Obama has chosen Pastor Rick Warren, founder of the Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, to deliver the invocation at the presidential inauguration next month. His choice has outraged the homosexual community. Source.

Pastor Warren, a supporter of California's Proposition 8 - a measure that outlaws same sex marriage in the state, set forth his grounds for opposing same sex marriage on Beliefnet.com earlier this week. The following are exerts from his interview posted on the website:

"For 5,000 years, marriage has been defined by every single culture and every single religion – this is not a Christian issue. Buddhist, Muslims, Jews – historically, marriage is a man and a woman. And the reason I supported Proposition 8, is really a free speech issue. Because first the court overrode the will of the people, but second there were all kinds of threats that if that did not pass then any pastor could be considered doing hate speech if he shared his views that he didn’t think homosexuality was the most natural way for relationships, and that would be hate speech. We should have freedom of speech, ok? And you should be able to have freedom of speech to make your position and I should be able to have freedom of speech to make my position, and can’t we do this in a civil way....

[Clarification/addition from Pastor Warren 12:15:

BOTTOM LINE:

1. God, who always acts out of love and does what is best for us, thought up sex. Sex was God’s idea, not ours. Like fire, and many other things God gave us, sex can be used for good, or abused in ways that harm. The Designer of sex has clearly and repeatedly said that he created sex exclusively for husbands and wives in marriage. Whenever God’s parameters are violated, it causes broken hearts, broken families, emotional hurt and shame, painful memories, and many other destructive consequences. There would be so STDs in our world if we all played by the rules.


2. God gives me the free choice to follow his commands or willfully disobey them so I must allow others to have that same free choice. Loving, trusting, and obeying God cannot be forced. In America, people already have the civil right to live as they wish.


3. If anyone, whether unfaithful spouses, or unmarried couples, or homosexuals or anyone else think they are smarter than God and chooses to disobey God’s sexual instructions, it is not the US government’s role to take away their choice. But neither is it the government’s role to classify just any “loving” relationship as a marriage. A committed boyfriend-girlfriend relationship is not a marriage. Two lovers living together is a not a marriage. Incest is not marriage. A domestic partnership or even a civil union is still not marriage.


4. Much of this debate is not really about civil rights, but a desire for approval. The fact that 70% of blacks supported Prop 8 shows they don’t believe it is a civil rights issue. Gays in California already have their rights. What they desire is approval and validation from those who disagree with them, and they are willing to force it by law if necessary. Any disapproval is quickly labeled “hate speech. Imagine if we held that standard in every other disagreement Americans have? There would be no free speech. That’s why, on the traditional marriage side, many saw Prop 8 as a free speech issue: Don’t force me to validate a lifestyle I disagree with. It is not the same as marriage.” And many saw the Teacher’s Union contribution of $3 million against Prop 8, as a effort to insure that children would be taught to approve what most parents disapprove of.

Can You forgive Christine Beatty?



While reading What About Our Daughters, I learned that Christine Beatty has plead guilty to two counts of obstruction of justice charges stemming from the text-messaging sex scandal case involving former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Click here for full WOAD coverage of the scandal.

As part of the plea deal, the charges of perjury and misconduct were dropped and Ms. Beatty will serve five years probation — the first 120 days to be served in jail — and pay a $100,000 fine based on her ability to pay. Also during her term on probation, Ms. Beatty cannot "attend, take or receive credit for any law school courses." (Sound effect: record needle scratching the record) You mean to tell me the state will not allow Ms. Beatty to accumulate more student loan debt to add to the $100,000 fine debt she owes the state. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment.

Can someone tell me why I feel sorry for Ms. Beatty?? I am not fond of lying adulterers. But after watching the above youtube video, I hope Ms. Beatty can rise above her ashes of humiliation.

Sidebar: Does anyone know how Mrs. Kilpatrick and the children are doing???

I pray that faith enters a new height for you; I pray that your territory is enlarged. I pray for peace, healing, health, happiness, prosperity, joy, true and undying love for God. [In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.]"

CONGRATS TO GINA OF MICHELLE OBAMA WATCH (Interview Link Attached)



I am listening to the Tom Joyner Morning Show while I am driving into work this morning. Guess who is being interviewed by Jackie Reid? None other than Gina McCauley, creator of the Michelle Obama Watch and What About Our Daughters blogs. Click here to listen to the interview.

Although I only caught the tail end of her interview, Gina did a great job. I am so proud of her.

Congrats to Gina and the Michelle Obama Watch contributors for a job well done.

Sidebar: Thank God for archives. I would have missed much of the interview because a certain person failed to inform me that she was going to be interviewed by the esteemed Jackie Reid. Thanks, pal. LOL. Yes, the blackberry, email, cellphone and landline are all working.

A GREAT MOVIE TO ADD TO THE VIDEO COLLECTION


I must admit that I am not into the holiday season. My spirits have been really down watching the news concerning the massive layoffs, mortgage crisis and current economic recession. I am grateful that have a job at this present time, but I can’t seem to shake the sadness that I feel for those who are unemployed. I am especially saddened by unemployed workers who have small children.

I am infuriated by how the US government is so quick to help bailout millionaires and billionaires at the expense of thousandaires, hundredaires and noaires. It is mind boggling. Why wasn’t the government quick to return some of the tax money that they confiscate from our paychecks every two weeks??? I know they extort $2,200.00 from my check each month. Do you know what I can do with $2,200.00?? Why aren’t they quick to give us a billion dollar bailout instead of those penny checks they gave out earlier this year??? I think I am going to add Congress to my “Sit Your Azz Down” list.

Sidebar: Whew, I am glad I got that off my chest.

For the foregoing reasons, I have been in a funk. I needed a lift in my spirit.

During the Thanksgiving, I purchased two DVDs. I wanted to return both movies but could not find the receipt.

So I decided to watch one of the movies tonight while I washed dishes. The movie was entitled, THE PERFECT HOLIDAY, staring Morris Chestnut (one of my favorite actors) and Gabrielle Union among others. This movie was awesome. It was sweet and well written. The actors were believable and did not "over act." The storyline was inspirational.

I have a new found respect for Gabrielle Union. She played a more vulnerable character and was not as stiff in her acting as she has been in prior roles. Of course, Easizon Love was funny. Kat Williams acted like he had some sense and did not look like a pimp or Yzma. I did not see any tomboy tendencies in Queen Latifah. Now you know that was some good acting.

Sidebar: I was confused by Queen Latifah’s and Terrence Howard’s roles in the movie. I think they were supposed to be angels. I am not sure. Nevertheless, I encourage each of you to add this to your video collection.

Bravo to the writers, producers, casting crew and actors. You all get two thumbs up with two big toes. Great job!!! This movie truly lifted my spirits.


PRAYER REQUEST FOR KAIYA CASTILLO

Sidebar: Kaiya Castillo's mother is a close friends of my former High School classmate and Sorority Sister. I am posting this information to help support Kaiya and her family.

Kaiya Castillo was born on July 9, 1994, in Plainfield, New Jersey. She was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a chronic lung disease, at five months of age. Cystic Fibrosis is a life-shortening disease that effects various organs in the body, especially the lungs.

Throughout her young life, Kaiya has had to endure countless hospital stays and procedures. Through it all, she has maintained a positive attitude and has continued to embody a beautiful spirit. Now at the tender age of 14, when most of the children her age's biggest worry is what to wear to school, Kaiya is fighting for her life.

Kaiya is in need of a double lung transplant that will save her life. This surgery costs in excess of $500,000. We are raising money to try to offset transplant related expenses.

Our fund raising goal is $35,000. Please help us in our fight to help Kaiya!

FINANCIAL PRAYER by Apostle Kymberly Daniels

"I pray for all your financial situations, in the name of Jesus. I declare that you are not bound by the economy of man but that you are under the covering of the economy of God. I say that you have more coming in than you have going out because the spirit of python is broken off of your affairs forever. Every wicked thing that has come in your dream life to steal your blessings is cursed to the root. Your enemies shall not devour you. You will be a bone in the throat of your enemies! I bind the spirit of the thief and say that the pink panther shall steal no more. I bind everything up and off of you that would make you look to the system of the world for provision. I prophesy a Zadok blessing upon you and pronounce a benediction of a blessing over your home. The place where you abide is under the anointing of Obed Edom. You are blessed coming in and going out. Wherever the soles of your feet shall tread, the land is yours! Whatever the palms of your hands touch will be prosperous. As you take your eyes off man and put them on Jesus, the oil of the blessing will drip from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet. The wealth of wicked men has been stored up for you and you are in a place to receive it. First fruit blessings are running you down and taking you over! You will not have to run after a blessing... YOU ARE BLESSED! And you will be a blessing! You will enter into the rest of God and your enemies will flee. Instead of fighting you, your enemies will send you gifts. No longer shall the enemy hang out in your gates. Your doorposts are covered with the blood of Jesus and healing and protection shall accompany your financial increase. You will receive great increase and enjoy the blessing of it. This is your heritage from God. Be satisfied...in the name of Jesus! You are so full of the blessings of God that you cannot help but share them. You are contagiously blessed! The lines of the spirit have fallen upon you in sweet and agreeable places and you have obtained your portion. Your field is blessed, your house is blessed and the blessing of your heritage is running through your bloodline like a river. Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living waters because your belly is not your God. Your children's children shall forever drink of these waters because the wells of your blessing run deep and are eternal. The spirit of Achan is broken off of your household. Slothfulness and laziness are cut off from your generations. Godly stewardship is your portion. Because you have chosen to obey the commandments of the Lord and remained on His side, the ground shall not open to devour you. One thousand will fall to your left side and ten thousand to your right but no harm will come nigh your dwelling. You will never covet another man's silver and gold. Evil desires will not be your portion because you have set your affections on the things of the kingdom and sought Him first. Paying taxes will be a blessing to you and not a curse. The spirit of Caesar shall not rule over your head. You will owe no man anything but to love him. You are a lender and not a borrower. The spirit of interest will not grip your loins. I declare that you are spiritually allergic to interest. Instead of interest sticking to your loins; it will run off of your back like water on a duck. You will be debt free! Your mortgages will be paid in full. I prophesy the deeds and titles into your hands. Your credit will be A-1 and your business affairs will prosper. Your prosperity will be undergirded in love and your neighbors will want you have. The heathen will be jealous of your prosperity because godliness will accompany your contentment. You will not beg, you will not borrow and you will not covet. I come in agreement with you and decree that you are saved, sanctified and satisfied...in Jesus name!"
