Raliegh Police: Kicks church goers out of church during ML King Event (video)

"The Church Lady"

This is why I absolutely love my churchladyblogs readers.  They make sure the Church Lady gets the real deal on whats going on in America.
It appears that Raleigh Police did not get the memo that we are FREE!  Dr. Janetta Cooper, Founder of NPower Ministries in Raleigh, NC sent Thechurchladyblogs.com  a note letting us know the real deal on the story that is buzzing around North Carolina news.  It appears that Raleigh Police kicked church goers out of church while they were conducting a Martin Luther King celebration. Neighbors say the music was too loud. Dr. Cooper contacted The Church Lady cause she wants the world to know, so yall make sure you tweet and facebook this post to everybody you know and if you are a blogger post it on your blog, just make sure you give me credit, Chile! Thanks Dr. Cooper for depending on the Church Lady to get the word out for you.

Never have I witnessed such a blatant exposition of racism and violation of human rights.   Amendment 1 of the United States Constitution says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”

On Saturday night, Jan 14,  2012 the Power Ministry rented the Glorious Church in Raleigh, NC, to have their Annual National New Year Celebration, which fell on Martin Luther King weekend.   I was unaware that police officers sat outside during the service.  There were about 60 people under the age of 35, in pure worship.  Minister Cory Wiley an up and coming dynamic young man of God, brought the word, then the youth in their way,  went into musical praise. It was an awesome display of Worship by our youth, I was so happy. At approxiamately 10:30 PM two police officers entered the sanctuary, unsolicited by us, and the first officer unsnapped his gun holster and pepper spray, stopped the music, shut down the service, and ordered us to leave the premises.  They actually stayed until everyone left and made sure the church was locked.  No one was fighting, no one was arguing, we were just singing!  The officer was yelling and screaming stating enough was enough and we had to leave.  Enough what?  We didnt understand.  The youth didnt say a word, however he asked for ID while placing a hand on his gun.  Unbelieveable!!!

Scene: Two white police officers unlawfully entered a black church, located in a white neighborhood, shut down a church service in the middle of Praise.  Guns holster snapped, pepper spray ready, screaming, yelling, disrespectful, face red with rage, Ordered every one OUT!   Demons were in rare form! The devil was MAD!  They closed a church service, in an established church, by an established ministry.  The constitution states we have the freedom to freely express  our faith.  What happened here? Do we live in Russia? China?  They dont even make nightclubs shut down, …..but the church?  And I dont understand the officers’ actions, coming in the church and snapping his gun holster.   His job is only to keep the peace when it involves the church, but  the police was the one who disturbed the peace!!!

There is a separation of church and state, law enforcement does not have the right to serve a warrant on church property, let alone snap their gun holster and close the service. There was no disturbance, except WORSHIP!   For a minute, I thought It was the sixties again.  Is this what Jesus died for?  is this what Martin Luther King died for?     It was unbelieveable that in 2012, African-Americans, on MLK birthday, were ordered by citation and police enforcement to leave the church, and told you cant do that here. The constitution does not apply to you, you dont have rights.  What?

They not only disrepected the ministry, but they disrepected every person there, they disrepected the sanctity of the church, and above, beyond, and without question, they disrespected the one and true living God.   Too long, the church has been passive, we have rights, we have the authority, and we have an obligation to stand for the cause of Christ. The City of Raleigh-Wake County  Law Enforcement made a horrific intentional flaunt of unlawful authority, in violation of the United States first Amendment.

Subsequently,  I cant find any documentation or court case where law enforcement actually closed down a church service, or entered a church un- invited, other than to keep peace.  Clearly the City of Raleigh Law Enforcement was operating unlawfully, and I cant just lay down and take it without pushing back.

You are welcome to share your comments, We truly need the prayers of the Saints.
