The Political Agitator’s response: Bishop Paul Morton Gets It When It Comes To Donald Trump For President. He hit the nail on the head Trump is a bully.
Bishop Paul S. Morton, the former pastor of Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church in New Orleans, was listed among the 100 black church leaders that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said would be endorsing him Monday, Nov. 30. But Morton, who in 1994 founded the Full Gospel Baptist denomination and has pastored in Atlanta since Hurricane Katrina, said in a tweet Friday that it’s not true that he’d be endorsing the candidate.
“I was asked 2 meet with Mr Trump too,” Morton tweeted, “but I refused because until he learns how to respect people you can’t represent me thru my endorsement.”
The word “too” that Morton uses in his tweet is significant because he’s not the only black religious leader who says his or her name has been wrongly included on a list of Trump endorsees. (Source: Read more)

Response: I understand where the Bishop is coming from and can relate. The only thing about being an Independent is during the Primary Election you can only vote for on party such as a Democratic or Republican Ballot. You can’t vote for both. So how do you determine which ballot you want? Do you look at the candidates or do you look at the party’s platform? In the General Election it does not matter.
For years, African Americans have voted overwhelmingly for any and everybody on the Democratic ticket. However, due to the recent "direction" of Democratic leadership, Bishop Paul S. Morton is taking a stand. "For the first time in my life I’m coming out as an independent!" he states.
In an exclusive interview, Bishop Morton tells Worship360:
"I have been a Democrat since I started voting in America, but this party is getting farther and farther away from what Kingdom people believe. For too long, Democrats have taken our vote for granted but kingdom people have rights too, and don’t want to be taken for granted. We will not just except anything. (More)
