A black conservative Christian podcast host claimed last month that the Black Lives Matter movement dabbles in witchcraft. The host also urged Christians who have expressed support in the organization to rethink their decision. He called on fellow believers to distance themselves from those associated with the “Marxist” group.
Abraham Hamilton III devoted his entire August 19 episode of “The Hamilton Corner” to highlight BLM’s connection to witchcraft.
Throughout his podcast, which airs on the conservative American Family Radio, Hamilton claimed that BLM is not just another social justice movement. In fact, he considers it a very dangerous religious movement.
Hamilton began is podcast criticizing the BLM movement as a “Marxist, anti-Christ, anti-family, [and] anti-man” organization. “What we are witnessing is a copy and paste of the Bolshevik Revolution from Russia just applied into an American context,” he added.
Hamilton informed his listeners that Patrisse Cullors, one of the co-founders of the movement, described herself as a “trained Marxist.” Hamilton read aloud a quote from Cullors explaining her philosophy on spirituality.
“I’m calling for spirituality to be deeply radical,” Cullors said. “We’re not just having a social justice movement, this is a spiritual movement.”
The podcast host also shared audio from a conversation between Cullors and Dr. Melina Abdullah, a professor of African studies at California State University Los Angeles. Abdullah is responsible for founding the BLM’s L.A. chapter.
“We’ve become very intimate with the spirits that we call on regularly,” Abdullah said in the audio clip. “Each of them seems to have a different presence and personality. You know, I laugh a lot with Wakiesha… I didn’t meet her in her body, right? I met her through this work.”
Wakiesha Wilson was an African-American woman who was found dead in a Los Angeles jail in 2016.
Hamilton went on to claim that the conversations among BLM leaders proves the organization is actively “summoning the spirits of the dead” to give them the “ability to do what they’re calling the so-called justice work.”
“They are summoning dead spirits. One of the touchstones of this religious practice is ancestral worship. Guess what the Bible calls that folks?” Hamilton asked. “Witchcraft.”
During the recording, Cullors went on to explain that BLM leaders were “resurrecting the spirits so they can work through us to get the work that we need to get done.”
“I started to feel personally connected and responsible and accountable to them, both from a deeply political place but also from a deeply spiritual place,” Cullors added.
“It’s so important, not just for us, to be in direct relationship to our people who have passed, but also for them to know we’ve remembered them. I believe so many of them work through us.”
Following the audio clip, Hamilton cited Deuteronomy 18 which describes those who call upon the dead as “detestable to the Lord.”
“How can you reconcile that with what the word of God says?” he asked his listeners. “We have got to evaluate everything through the word of God.”
