Pastor Has SHOCKING Claims About Blacks & Slavery, Sparks OUTRAGE
One pastor has a highly controversial claim about African-American families and slavery, and his perspective has sparked quit a debate online. Based on the audio for the discussion, most listeners would immediately blast him for being racist, but there’s just one problem — he’s also African-American.
According to the Christian Post, Dr. Tony Evans, pastor of the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas, insists African-American families were “stronger” when they endured slavery.
During a panel discussion with Dallas Theological Center scholar Dr. Darrell Bock about “racial reconciliation,” Dr. Evans made the shocking claim and offered details supporting his opinion when asked how the black community could rebuild those bridges.
Here’s Dr. Evans’ response to the question via Opposing Views:
