Rev. Wright on Obamas: ‘Church Is Not Their Thing’

Rev. Wright on Obamas: ‘Church Is Not Their Thing’ By Fred Lucas May 29, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – In speaking about Barack and Michelle Obama, their longtime pastor, the Rev. Jermiah Wright said, “Church is not their thing. It never was their thing.”

President Obama and the first lady were married by Rev. Wright, and their two daughters, Sasha and Malia, were baptized by the controversial pastor. As head of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Ill., Wright sometimes delivered sermons critical of U.S. foreign policy and asked whether God should bless or damn America. (Rev. Wright is now pastor emeritus of the church.)

The issue of the relationship between Rev. Wright and Barack Obama recently resurfaced because of a new Obama biograpny, The Amateur, by former New York Times Magazine Editor Edward Klein. He conducted a nearly three-hour interview with Rev. Wright for the book. The audio of that interview was released by Klein’s publicist.

During the interview, Rev. Wright talked about the first couple’s time in his church, and rejected the premise that they attended because Michelle Obama wanted to attend.

“Well, people that go to church, the brides normally have their wedding at their church, which is why I think Michelle joined,” Wright told Klein. “Now that’s been my sneaking suspicion because she didn’t grow up in the church. Where have you heard or read about her family raising her in the church?”

Other than every week for 20 years to listen to Black Liberation Theology, that is.

This is so transparent, you would think Rev. Wright had white, translucent skin.

So NOW we know why the Obamas ‘sat in that church for 20 years’ had never heard any divisive and outrageous preachings. And they maintained their lily whiteness from the scum pond. (oops kindof racist here)

” Rev. Wright on Obamas: ‘Church Is Not Their Thing’

It sure WAS their thing when he ran for POTUS...he just left out the Muslims, and his Marxism.

Church is not their thing? How about Faith is not their thing?

Wright is right.

Church is NOT their thing.

MOSQUE is their thing.

And Wright’s “church” is no Christian church.

Jesus is not their thing. That is easy to see. I hope some day BO will accept Jesus Christ as his savior and not just as a prophet.

I never heard what church in DC the Obamas chose.
Oh, that’s right. He no longer needs a church. He IS the Messiah now......phony plastic Commie jerk.

He uses a church only for posturing.

I actually think “church” was their thing to gain acceptance in the Chicago community. It was not at all about faith...

Human is not their thing.
American Patriotism is not their thing.
Rule of Law is not their thing.
The Constitution is not their thing.

...I could go on for days.

OF COURSE “church is not their thing”.

When Ubama (or a handler) chose Chicago as the launch point for his political career, he knew he had to establish his churchgoing bona fides in order to grow his reputation as a community organizer and “network”. He had to fit in with “the community” and make lots of friends, fast. Wright’s big church on the south side fit the bill perfectly.

Ubama’s regular Sunday visits to Wright’s church had nothing to do with religion or faith or Christianity. It was a prop and that’s what it was all along. Nothing more. Ubama used Wright and his church and they served his purpose, but now he’s done with them and he’s disposed of them like used condoms. He’ll never set foot in Wright’s or any other church again unless he thinks he has to for some new political convenience.

Freaking duh.

It was a political decision by Bari and nothing more, a necessity to a Chicago political career. Bill Ayers or Crazy Louie probably recommended this particular church.

Only later did he learn he had an America-Hating soul-mate in Rev. Wright, and a 20 year friendship ensued.

Since church is not obama’s thing, what is his thing?
He’s not Christian, he’s not muslim.
Who does he look up to? whom or what does he worship?
We can’t say he worships satan because if he did, he’d have destroyed America a long time ago.

I’m thinking if we elect a President that has no strong standing in ANY faith, be it good or evil, then we get a flip flopper. Our President has to worship his choice of G(g)od 100%. If our next President is to be a Buddhist, then let him be 100% practicing and believing Buddhist.

I’m at the point, if America is to be destroyed, destroy it now. Get it over with. This dragging it out is getting tiresome and draining.

Golf, elite dining, and 5 star vacation venues.

Plus a daily dose of ego massage / @ss kissing from a vast cadre of sycophants.

Precisely. "Religion is the opiate of the masses" according to Obama's hero, and Obama has no qualms about using what he sees as a drug to get what he wants.

“asked whether God should bless or damn America.”

It’s a good question.

If pressed further, and if honest, wright would probably admit that God is not their thing.

There are no churches on the Tundra where Mooschele was born and raised. Eating lichens really turned her into a sourpuss.

And her mother dressed her funny!

Marxists only believe in the State not God.

He wants everything state owned, including your life - he's at war with God.

What happened to the rumor Wright got paid $150K in 2008 to shut up?

That was pretty hot a week or so ago. Then it kinda faded away.
