Skip to comments.Pfleger: 'Hillary and McCain would wish they had a preacher with the integrity of Jeremiah Wright.'

I don't know how many of Joel Osteen's flock were thinking of voting for Barack Obama, but I'd like to make sure every last one of them hears this comment from Fr. Michael Pfleger, longtime friend of Obama and one of the Democratic candidate's spiritual mentors:
"Hillary and McCain would wish they had a preacher with the integrity of Jeremiah Wright. They got some old weak preacher some old Joel Osteen cotton candy preacher."
Let's just come out and say it Pfleger is an A-1 jerk [perhaps not the first word that came to mind], and Obama only started objecting to his comments once it started hurting his political ambitions.
The question is, do Osteen's two million weekly viewers and three million book buyers take it personally?
The best description I’ve heard of Pfleger’s bizarre preaching style is “channelling Dick Shawn in The Producers.”
Obama’s preachers are all racists and if they want a race riot, they just might get it. All they want is their peoples money and they are getting it.
The local radio morning shows continue to compare Pfleger to a young Sam Kinnison....
It would be a lot funnier if..........
At least those attending JO sermons don’t hear a “priest” like Pfleger delivering an over-the-top mockery of a black preacher. Pgleger’s delivery is so ridiculous - it is the gold-standard of white guy goes black preacher - it is so forced, it is comically so. The saddest part is those in attendance don’t seem to realize the delivery is an act - a bad one.
But did he say it in Christian love?
Now they're mocking Joel Osteen, the most loving, gentle preacher on TV - (with an audience many times theirs, I might add), that's just disgusting.
And America is going to see how Christian she is ... or isn't.
The tactic is not to actually DO anything ... just float a balloon and see where the wind drifts it.
I hate the Socialists.
I'm not a big McCain fan, but I personally can't just sit idly by and watch people like Obama, Pfleger and Wright try to set the moral compass for our country for the next four years.

Funny how being a racist POS pr#ck constitutes “integrity.”
They don’t want Obama to win. It would put them out of business.
“The local radio morning shows continue to compare Pfleger to a young Sam Kinnison....”
WHAAAAAT??? They shouldn’t disrespect the dead like that. Sam was a jewel. This one is shameful.
Just the speech patterns....That’s all.
“The saddest part is those in attendance dont seem to realize the delivery is an act - a bad one.”
As usual, they’re too over-wrought to notice. See, I think the scariest thing about this latest video is the same as all previous ones - the maniacal yelling, jumping up and down, arm/fist waving and standing o’s of the crowd in this “church”.
A wonderful* and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
[*wonderful = incomprehensible ... i.e., not the good kind of 'wonderful']
Just the speech patterns....Thats all.
Well, I agree - it really WAS a caricature.
