Obama's Church: Cauldron of Division

Jim Davis Thursday, Aug. 9, 2007

Reprint Information Book on Katie Couric Makes Waves White House: We're Not Subject to FOIA FBI Seeks 2 Mysterious Men on Ferry Publisher: Conservatives Do Read As Much As Liberals Romney Shrugs Off Mormon History Film

Presidential candidate Barack Obama preaches on the campaign trail that America needs a new consensus based on faith and bipartisanship, yet he continues to attend a controversial Chicago church whose pastor routinely refers to "white arrogance" and "the United States of White America."

In fact, Obama was in attendance at the church when these statements were made on July 22. .....

due to the awful version sung by some screaming banshee from the black side of his family

that's not funny, but hopefully it was meant to be humorous. Because we don't need those sorts of asinine comments here.

The phrase, "Obama's personal spiritual advisor" is a side-splitter. This guy is on the campaign trail with the Illinois Flash to meet privately with the more radical blacks and black church leaders as Obama goes from state to state, city to city hustling votes.

If Barack needs a daily "spiritual advisor" to accompany him everywhere he goes then he (BO) is not very grounded in his so-called Christian faith. How many of us need a spiritual guru at our side every day?

It's all voodoo, eyewash, camouflage, humbug, trickery and flim-flam.....that's what it am.

I also wonder if any of these black racists realize that the fine Islamic Muslims were the original slave traders and slave owners.

Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam must all be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome!

There's no hint on the pastoral staff page (via a sidebar link) that the Rev. Wright is retired in any way.

Well, you could be right, and we do have to be careful, with the intensity of the dem bunch trying to deflect attention elsewhere.

That said, I just sent an email to my son, encouraging him to sign on to FreeRepublic. He is absolutely conservative, and is about fed up with it all. He is retired AF Security Police, served in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Andrews AF Base (when GHWB was vice-pres) and now provides security for special situations in the DC area.

It might really insult him if someone thought he might be a plant.....

It's not the date of the signup, it's the nature of the postings that catches one's attention. But you already know that :)

I wasn’t trying to be funny...
I was stone cold serious, and meant every word exactly as I typed them..

I take our National Anthem VERY seriously — and object VERY strongly when some semi literate untalented clown screeches it while rearranging it to sound like some crack head must be hearing it.

Have you listened to the song as sung at that event?
If not - you should, before lecturing me.

Of course!

This election season is fraught with danger. The stakes are so high for our nation, and it is only going to get worse.

The democrats have almost completely destroyed the black community and family in the past 60 years, leaving burnt out neighborhoods bereft of any local businesses and role models.

Welfare, ADC, and all the other social programs became “the helping hand that strikes again”. Yet, conservatives and Republicans, who fought to end slavery are labeled by these misguided liberal idiots as the intolerant racists.

Truly Orwellian!

There was almost nothing except for a couple of Newsmax stories for more than a year, then suddenly everyone is learning that Obambi's spiritual mentor is a virulent America-hating racist. Interesting how the push only started when the Hildebeast reached desperation......

Exactly correct. The mainstream media wanted nothing to do with this story. The most recent mention of what Wright was really saying in the mainstream media was in January 2007 editions of the New York Times and Chicago Tribune. But you see, both Hillary and Obama have many friends and supporters in the mainstream media. So when they want a story to get broad, nationwide coverage before a large audience, their staff members leak it to their friends in the news media.

It's certainly not that that bothers me. It's obvious manipulators who come here not to provide information, but rather to watch the people of FR jump on like lemmings who can be whipped up into a mindless froth.

I sure would like to know what Harold Ickes and Bernie Nessbaum have been doing lately. Whenever there is a foul smell to a news event that favors the Clintons, I always wonder about the location these two characters.

if it was ANY "progressive", regardless of color/creed/religion, the main-SLIME press would NOT say a word about the HATE spewed out OF that church.

to ALL: get the message: it's really NOT about "race". instead it's about inbred HATRED of others unlike themselves (who the "favored group" regards as "something less than they are")& a LUST for $$$$$$$$$$ & POWER, that motivates these creeps.

“”I don’t place my hand over my heart for the Star Spangled Banner. But I do for the Pledge of Allegiance. I think that is pretty much the norm. Since this was the during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner I don’t see why it is such a big deal.

Am I missing something here?”

The Salute

To salute, all persons come to attention. Those in uniform give the appropriate formal salute. Citizens not in uniform salute by placing their right hand over the heart and men with head cover should remove it and hold it to left shoulder, hand over the heart. Members of organizations in formation salute upon command of the person in charge.

The Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem

The pledge of allegiance should be rendered by standing at attention, facing the flag, and saluting.
When the national anthem is played or sung, citizens should stand at attention and salute at the first note and hold the salute through the last note. The salute is directed to the flag, if displayed, otherwise to the music.

If B H Obama did not know that Rev Wright was a Marxist Racist
after 20 years, then Obama is dumber than a box of rocks.

Personally I believe he is a liar and a Racist and a Marxist himself.

If this blatant racism of Senator B. (whose middle name may NEVER be spoken) Obama isn't enough to stop him...he will definitely be President B. (whose middle name may NEVER be spoken) Obama.

He can put whatever spin on it he (or his apologists) like,,,but,,,anyone who....

associates with a blatant bigot like Wright,,,,

was married by a blatant bigot like Wright,,,,

had his kids baptized by a blatant bigot like Wright,,,,

and considers a blatant bigot like Wright a close friend for over 20 years,,,,

and uses a blatant bigot like Wright as a Pastor for over 20 years,,,,

and uses a blatant bigot like Wright as a MENTOR for over 20 years,,,,

and uses a blatant bigot like Wright as a 'spiritual advisor' for over 20 years,,,

and contributed over $20,000 to a blatant bigot like Wright,,,,

IS BY DEFINITION A BLATANT BIGOT!!!
