“Reparations” is a buzzword used by liberals to essentially buy black votes.
What exactly each person means by reparations can be hazy, but they’re generally believed to be some form of cash payment to African Americans.
Even though we ended slavery in the 19th century and have made a lot of civil rights progress, liberals and the mainstream media profess that it’s not enough!
Now you can add the organization Christianity Today to the list of groups demanding reparations.
Fox News reports on the organization’s call for payments to blacks:
Following George Floyd’s death, the nation may not be ready for reparations on racism issues but the “church can lead the way in biblical restitution,” according to the president and CEO of Christianity Today.
Timothy Dalrymple said “repentance alone is not enough” for white evangelicals to atone for the nation’s “original sin” of racism in an op-ed for the magazine.
“The virus of racism infected our church, our Constitution and laws, our attitudes and ideologies. We have never fully defeated it,” Dalrymple wrote.
“It’s time for white evangelicals to confess that we have not taken the sin of racism with the gravity and seriousness it deserves,” he said, claiming the church was “silent in the face of slavery or even complicit in it.”
“Today’s generations may say we did not invent the bull of racial injustice,” Dalrymple said. “But we have benefited from it.”
The Christianity Today CEO suggests churches adopt a model he saw in Atlanta called a “Zacchaeus fund,” where “a majority-black committee assigns the funds to support rising black leaders in the church and in the marketplace.”
“It will not be enough, but it will be something,” he added in his article. “What if there were Zacchaeus funds in every city and believers gave sacrificially, so our brothers and sisters could be restored and so our neighbors could see once again the Christlike love that overcame the world?”
Yet another group that seems highly concerned with the opinion of Black Lives Matter.
Mind you, this is the same company that called for Trump’s removal from office, so their call for reparations should be taken with a grain of salt.

It seems, unfortunately, that talks of reparations are becoming more serious lately.
The Hill details the California Legislature's new bill that advanced to study how reparations could be implemented in the state:
The California Assembly voted this week to establish a task force to study and propose recommendations for giving reparations to African Americans.
The bill, which passed by a 56-5 margin, comes as the nation is rocked by protests over systemic racism and police use of force after the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis.
The bill calls for the Regents of the University of California “to assemble a colloquium of scholars to draft a research proposal to analyze the economic benefits of slavery that accrued to owners and the businesses, including insurance companies and their subsidiaries, that received those benefits, and to make recommendations to the Legislature regarding those findings.”
The legislation would also require California’s Insurance Commissioner to obtain information from licensed insurers “regarding any records of slaveholder insurance policies issued by any predecessor corporation during the slavery era.”
The Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans would consist of eight members, at least four of which would “represent major civil society and reparations organizations.” The governor would be required to convene the group for its first meeting no later than June 1, 2021.
