On Kwanzaa

Topics: Faith

A commenter posted on our "Merry Christmas and Happy Channukah" post - "And Happy Kwanzaa." While we appreciate all comments from our readers, and always give everyone an opportunity to express their opinions and discuss issues, I just thought that I'd take this opportunity to straighten out the not-so-understood and much misrepresented (mostly by the media) so-called "holiday" of "Kwanzaa."

And since I'm not black, I'll let La Shawn Barber, who is, explain the matter:

...Attention Christians: Kwanzaa is a made-up creed cobbled together by a man hostile to the very God you claim to worship! According to Karenga, Christianity is a myth. He does not believe in the God of the Bible.

...For decades, the media have given credence to many a self-appointed black "leader," no matter how outrageous. Now they're doing the same with a pagan ritual called Kwanzaa, a so-called African-American holiday.

...A made-up, anti-Christian observance, Kwanzaa is celebrated by blacks who profess Christ. In our politically correct climate, even President George Bush, a believer in Christ, feels obligated to praise this ritual.

...Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by Dr. Maulana "Ron" Karenga (link inserted), a former black militant, Marxist and convicted felon. Claiming to have the unity of black people in mind, Karenga committed most of his crimes against blacks.

...Just five years after his invention, he was convicted of torturing two black women by stripping them naked, beating them with electrical cords, placing a hot iron into the mouth of one and mangling the toe of the other in a vice. During the ordeal, he forced them to drink detergent.

La Shawn has much more on the issue of Kwanzaa being a non-holiday and a made-up anti-Christian observance.
