Fed up with the Obama nightmare...
The media nor anyone else chose Obama's church and pastor for himself and his family. HE DID. Obama has been a faithful member of this "church" (and I use that term lightly to describe the maniacal definite non-Christian behavior) for at least 20 years. There is no way on God's green earth Obama didn't know what was being preached.
ABC news bought many sermons, they all contain racist remarks that damn America. We are not talking about a preacher who is having a bad Sunday. So, rd, go ahead and down play the entire fiasco. There is no way I would ever put my trust in a political candidate who openly and independently supported this organization and leader full of hate for our United States. And, laugh if you like at Joel Osteen. He's not my pick either, but at least he does not proclaim, "God Damn America" from the pulpit.
So don't blame the media, don't blame anyone but Obama for choosing to be a sheep in this lunatic's pasture. It is hard to believe that all of a sudden he wishes to "distance" himself from this pastor...I mean he has been his spiritual advisor for two decades and is a part of his official campaign? Hopefully this will be a sign for Americans to wake up and see past the white veneer and the eloquently delivered motivational speeches.
And all I have to say is GOD BLESS AMERICA.
As the saying goes, "we can't choose our parents"... but we can choose our pastors. Most who have heard the sound bites from Reverend Wright's sermons would agree that this man is a bit over the top. What concerns me is why would Obama, an intelligent man with a firm grasp of the English language, tolerate such blatant racism, hatred and bigotry from his "spiritual" leader of 20 years?
Wright's sermons aren't the equivalent of a Trent Lott, "Whoops" ...they are cold and calculated words from an ignorant hate monger. Obviously, Obama does not control what his long time friend and pastor espouses from the pulpit, but why should he tolerate or excuse such outrageous racism in the name of religion?
I am not ready to write off Obama as our next President, but I think his campaign was seriously damaged by his association with Reverend Wright. True, Obama is an eloquent speaker and his views on racial equality were quite ground-breaking in his speech on Monday; however, there is no justification for ignorance and hatred being spewed by anyone, regardless of his race or "association" with God.
Senator Obama has the potential to become a true leader in the campaign for racial equality in our country, but he will never succeed until he distances himself from those continue to preach separatism and hate.
