Kirk Franklin took home the prestigious Gospel Artist Of The Year award at the 48th Annual GMA Dove Awards this month but what has stayed on the minds of many was the powerful acceptance speech urging Christians to speak out against injustice. He talks to the Tom  Joyner Morning Show about his disappointment in the television network for editing his speech.

“The churches silence on this is becoming very numb. We should be disappointed. We should be controlling the narrative and not the world. We should be leading the charge. The response that night was incredible. The audience is 85% is white. It was a standing ovation…TBN edited it! Usually television shows edit for commercials but TBN doesn’t have commercials,” Franklin said.

Watch the speech below and listen to the interview above.

    I must say this, to keep a people lost, you must strip them from their God. We already know Jesus was the first slave ship to America financed by King James. With that being said… Why wont my people learn Hebrew? Why are the Black Christians stuck on this religion that forces their mind to be submissive, passive and unaware of the dangers against us. Who are you really praying too when you Bow your head instead of raising it with your hands. Its a proven fact that the English-language are spells. Just as much as it hurts to hear Jesus was a slave ship, then it must be even more strange to find out that you’ve been programmed to give satan praise everyday and you don’t know it.

    2 Peter 1:2-8
    2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
    3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
    4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
    5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
    6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
    7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
    8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    2Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 5Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, 6and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, 7and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. 8For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. 10Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; 11for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.
    12Therefore, I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been established in the truth which is present with you. 13I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder, 14knowing that the laying aside of my earthly dwelling is imminent, as also our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15And I will also be diligent that at any time after my departure you will be able to call these things to mind.
    Eyewitnesses
    16For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”— 18and we ourselves heard this utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
    19So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. 20But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, 21for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
    Revelation 2:7
    7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

    It is a shame that the church is silent for the most part. How can you believe in Jesus and not hear the cries of the poor, the citizens and the people? I am questioning these so called pastors and leaders, but not as much as I am challenging them to step out of that comfort zone they have been preaching to the masses about for years! This is the movement God was speaking of! If we truly desire wealth and prosperity we have to be willing to speak up for those being mistreated. To allow them room at the cross as Jesus did. Everyone deserves equal opportunities, fairness and equal treatment. Some things need to be done away with. I mean do we need the police to stop us from selling CDs? Do we need them to stop us for a tail light when they could take a picture and send a notice in the mail like they do for red lights? How much policing do we need?

    I’m glad that Kirk spoke up and that awards show was a good place to do it. Hope he and o her prominent Christians do the same. I also love Jonathan Butler and his music … the acoustic guitar, jazz, worship. Such a blessed man. Good to see him standing next to Kirk.

    I’m still surprised that folks are surprised when white folks edit or censor what words come from the lips of a person speaking truth. Because they are a channel or award show promoting gospel music or Christian programming, does not mean they like the token people of color. Most times they are trying to be Christian like and political correct. In honest they don’t want to deal with the real…just skim over it and clap your hands for white Jesus. I stopped watching TBN years ago.

    At the end of the day they are still white and could care less about racism. The white church has never taken any initiative against racism. Don’t forget that segregation was also practiced in white churches so not surprised by what happened with TBN which I haven’t watched in years since there is nothing Christian about TBN.

    Your right Kirk, this is a political game that’s played on black folks life. I am happy to attend a church in Whitestown, Indiana that not afraid of prying for the racist police killing an doing something about it.
    Several years ago I was profiled for the color of my skin by a police department in Indianapolis, I could not believe I was tased and pulled for the car and put in jail. Wow did not se that coming. I was humiliated by someone I was taught by “officer friendly ” in elementary school someone you can trust. (I should have remembered what my mother said to me Christ is the only one you should have faith in)
    My family was humiliated by public records of what happen, my new born son was born, my wife just got the job she wanted and now me going through hell. Where was the black minister they did not want to deal with this because the police controls their tongues, except for the coolest dude preacher named Freddy Hanes from Dallas Texas.

    Bro Franklin, Keep talking and proclaiming the word. That’s why the CHURCH is in the shape that it’s in “NO FAITH IN ITS OWN POWER”, so God will use donkeys (not calling you one) the rocks are already crying out, because the CHURCH IS SILENT.

    (Brother) Kirk Franklin was and is absolutely right! How “ironic” that as he opened up his mouth to speak and did speak in truth, he was edited/censored by TBN. I have grown weary of so much hate and anger coming to the surface of everyday conversations regarding the election period we are in now. This is between CHRISTians and should not be so. We have the ability to set the “atmosphere” over our nation, cities, government officials and all authority, but we rather talk/complain about it. Some are willing to pray and do their due diligence, while others allow their emotions and generational mindsets get the better of them. We need to be at all times, “About our Father’s business” before we leave this earth for eternal business in heaven. We should not asking questions as much as providing answers from Our One True Living GOD of All Flesh and All Time, The Great I AM. Obviously, we need to cover those that are in authority over CHRISTian organizations that may have a problem revealing the Truth of GOD’s Spirit spoken in love and humility.

    He did nothing wrong. He said what needed to be said and the children of God were in agreement with him by standing up! So, what was the problem?
