Who the Noisemakers Are Not

ANC6C Commissioner Anthony Rivera phoned me last week to explain during the Dec. 14 ANC6C meeting, he invited a representative of a church group often confused with the noisemakers disrupting the community with amplified speech. Unfortunately, I didn't see this item on the December agenda and did not attend the meeting. Anthony apologized for not notifying our community in advance.

Rick Clavery of the Israelite Church of God and Jesus Christ told attendees of the ANC6C meeting that the noisemaking group is not part of his church, according to Voice of the Hill (Dec. 22). Clavery said the noisemaking group is a "radical break-off flank" of the church. Clavery's group focuses on educating parishioners--not being disruptive, according to the summary in Voice of the Hill.

I know Anthony wants to ensure innocent groups' reputations are not falsely tarnished, however it does not make a difference to our affected community which group is making the noise. Some also believe church groups should be exempt from noise ordinances. A position with which I disagree because it shifts the burden of measuring decibels to defining church groups.

Rick Clavery is correct in that the "so-called" noisemakers are not affiliated with the Christians at the israelite church of god and jesus christ. In fact, i.c.g.j.c. are a docile and timid break-off flank of the Israelite School of U.P.K..

The ICGJC would teach that the ISUPK is a break away sect, but actually the reverse is true (i.e. the ICGJC is an outgrowth of the ISUPK, started by Abba Bivens). Regardless, I disagree with the poster who claimed they are "docile" and "timid". Perhaps they are not as vocal (and they certainly don't appear on the streets as often), but they are still a racist group, with basically the same theology as the ISUPK.

I have interacted with both the ISUPK and the ICGJC and they are not "docile". They are hatemongers that are waiting for the right time to rise up against their enemies. In fact they have a hit list of all the nations ["races"] that they curse and pray for God to destroy: Caucasians are top on their list. I would not be surprised to see them in the middle of race war if chaos was to break out in America.
