Look at the reaction of the people in this church. They are not stunned or appalled.

It's pretty obvious what this church is about.

And it's pretty obvious that what this church is about Obama is about.

"Racial issues are both political and moral and are also highly charged. Words can be differently interpreted, but Fr. Pfleger's remarks about Senator Clinton are both partisan and amount to a personal attack, I regret that deeply.”

"To avoid months of turmoil in the church, Fr. Pfleger has promised me that he will not enter into campaigning, will not publicly mention any candidate by name and will abide by the discipline common to all Catholic priests."

Oh, I'm so impressed -- NOT!

Cardinal George is too much of a coward to do what really needs to be done. Never in his life has Pfleger "abide[d] by the discipline common to all Catholic priests".

Tell me how a priest can support a militantly pro abortion candidate?

Barack and Michelle are different. They are the only ones who don’t hoot and holler and jump up and down when the preacher’s on a racist political rant. They are only there for the spiritual mentoring. /(wanna buy some mountain property in Florida?)

“...it is in the hands of the RNC being used for fund raising and then for an October surprise.”

His big-mouthed whiner wife will be the undoing of B. Hussein. It is too bad that someone has let the cat out of the bag about the bombshell video...which is why B. Hussein was already warning the GOP not to “go after” his woman.

Of course, McCain may find that just too mean and refuse to let the GOP run such an ad...in which case, a 527 will do it for them.

They aren’t, they do represent the devils’ message quite nicely though.

Maybe Pastor Hagee is not completely wrong?

He’s got the fake black accent down pretty well.

The guy (Pfleger) looks like a real pr!ck. He’s been well schooled in the Marxist liberation theology.

Shall we demand an IRS investigation of these religious zealots?

Last year, Father Flakey harangued an anti-gun mob outside of a Chicago-area gun shop that Anti-gun tyrant Mayor Daley has been trying to shut down via intimidation and fear.

Amongst other hysterical rhetorical outbursts, Flakey said that the law abiding gun shop owner should be dragged like a rat from his shop and “snuffed” along with any Illinois legislators who would not vote for the anti-gun legislation. If someone can give me a good free site for audio uploads, I will post the audio clip for you to hear.

This fool may be a clown, but he is also a demagogue and potentially too dangerous to be undisciplined by the Archdiocese.

I think we should, let's put a petition together and send it to the IRS and demand that they audit and then remove the tax exemption status. They want to be a political stadium than pay taxes!

“Has ANYONE, EVER met someone who thought they were entitled to something because of their skin color, that WAS white?’
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Amazin’, ain’t it? It seems that a common theme of human nature is to accuse others of your own failings. The strangest part of this is that the “priest” who is doing all this shuckin’ and jivin’ is as white as the driven snow. Is he the inspiration for Steve Martin’s movie, “The Jerk”? “I was raised a poor black priest.........”

The leftists have so contorted logic for so many years that their own heads are spinning now as they try in vain to make some sense of all their insanity! Only the most hardcore deceivers or those who lack the brains to cross the street on their own are still able to pretend that Obama and Clinton are anything other than two of the cruelest jokes imaginable. How did a nation founded by some of the wisest men ever to live descend to this level of madness? We have traded our birthright for a crock of bovine excrement.
