Pastor Brooks is well known for his skill in gang violence prevention, he's even worked with Chicago rap star Chief Keef relative to the rapper changing certain aspects of his lifestyle. Pastor Brooks has conducted many community STOP THE VIOLENCE marches on the South Side of Chicago and is an intricate part of Steve Harvey's Mentoring Program in Chicago.
Pastor Brooks along with many other religious leaders on the West and South Sides of Chicago decided to support Bruce Rauner for Governor of Illinois. Although many other religious leaders are supporting Mr. Rauner, Pastor Brooks is one of the most high profile supporters which has lead to him being targeted. Pastor Brooks has been receiving threats thwarts his life and the life of his family since he decided to support Bruce Rauner for Governor! Not even a week ago his church was vandalized and broken into!
My friends, as someone who received death threats for years because of my stance against political thugs such as Mark Carter, Paul McKinley, and Queen Sister...I (Jim Allen) can attest to the mental and physical stress it can cause! This isn't to say the 3 knuckleheads I mentioned above have anything to do with threats thwarts Pastor Brooks and the vandalizing of his church; however, it is their method of operation in times past.
Our deepest prayers are with Pastor Corey B. Brooks and his family as they pick up the pieces and move forward. No one should be harassed, intimated, and or threatened simply because of their political or social stance! This is America not some communist country and we will not be intimidated! The work goes on, the cause endures, and the dream shall never die!
