Support Grace Not Hate

SAN JOSE’S GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH (GBC) WORSHIP SERVICE VICTIMIZED BY HATE CRIME.

GBC WAS BARRAGED BY ANTI GAY, ANTI SEMITIC, ANTI BLACK, ANTI LATINO, AND TRANS PHOBIC CALLS FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST OUR COMMUNITY.

ON EASTER SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 4TH, 2021, ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE ASSASSINATION OF REV. DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR, GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH’S ONLINE ZOOM WORSHIP SERVICE WAS DEFILED BY THE ECHOES OF WHITE SUPREMACY, HATRED AND VIOLENCE BY UNKNOWN PERPETRATORS AGAINST BLACKS, JEWS, LATINOS, AND LGBTQ MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY.

GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH IS ARGUABLY THE MOST PROGRESSIVE CHURCH IN SAN JOSE. SAN JOSE IS THE CAPITAL OF SILICON VALLEY AND THE TENTH LARGEST CITY IN AMERICA.

GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH RECENTLY GARNERED UNWANTED NATIONAL ATTENTION WHEN IT SUFFERED A VICIOUS STABBING ATTACK THAT LEFT TWO MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY DEAD, INCLUDING ONE TRANSPERSON, AND THREE OTHERS SEVERLY WOUNDED.

DURING ITS HEALING PROCESS, GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH RECENTLY VOTED TO RECEIVE AND EMBRACE A NEW PASTOR, THE REVEREND GEORGE E. OLIVER. REVEREND GEORGE OLIVER IS AN ANOMALY COMING OUT OF THE BLACK BAPTIST CHURCH. REV. OLIVER IS AN OUTSPOKEN AND PROGRESSIVE GAY AFRICAN AMERICAN CLERGYMAN FROM TEXAS, AMERICAN BAPTIST CHURCHES USA.  HIS PROFILE IN MAJOR CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY INTERSECTS SOCIAL JUSTICE, ARTS, RELIGIOUS ENGAGEMENT, BIPOC & LGBTQIA ACTIVISM.

GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH NEEDS THE SUPPORT OF OUR COMMUNITY AND NATION THAT SENDS A MESSAGE;

HATE AND VIOLENCE HAVE NO PLACE IN OUR SOCIETY AND WE WILL STAND UNITED AGAINST ALL WHO AIM TO DIVIDE AND HARM US.

GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH IS IN NEED OF ADDITIONAL SECURITY AND NEEDS TO SUPPORT AND EXPAND ITS MISSION AND OUTREACH OF SPREADING LOVE, SERVING THE UNHOUSED, IMMIGRANT CHILDREN & THEIR FAMILIES, AND OTHER MARGINALIZED MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY.
