Obama didn't join Wright's church to follow Jesus
WorldNetDaily ^ | Oct 8, 2012 | Jerome R. Corsi

Barack Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago purely for political reasons, according to long-term member of the congregation who knew the Obamas.

“Obama may say he’s a Christian, but he’s not,” said the member, identified for this story as “Rose.” “Joining Trinity for Obama was a political decision, not a religious one.”

Rose pointed out that when Obama came to Chicago after graduating from Columbia University, he was an outsider, albeit with important contacts in Chicago’s African-American power structure.

She noted Obama’s mentor in Hawaii was Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist Party USA member and activist who made his reputation in Chicago.

Davis and Vernon Jarrett, the father-in-law of senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, were close friends in Chicago and colleagues at the Chicago Defender and the Chicago Star, two communist-run newspapers during the 1940s.

In early 1948, Davis and Vernon Jarrett served together on the publicity committee of the Citizen’s Committee to Aid Packing-House Workers, a communist-organized labor union that represented workers in the meatpacking industry.

“Think about it,” Rose said, “Obama’s Kenyan father abandoned him. In Hawaii, Obama fills that in with Frank Marshall Davis. In Chicago, it’s Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

She pointed out that Davis admitted to being bisexual, and there are rumors in the South Side Chicago community that Wright is bisexual. ......

This is the third of a series of articles WND has developed from months of confidential in-person interviews with members of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago who have known Barack and Michelle Obama on a personal basis over many years. In the first story, members of the church claimed Barack Obama benefited from Wright’s “Down Low Club,” part of a documented underground subculture in which black men who engage in homosexual activity marry to maintain respectability in public. In the second story, sources said civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, along with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, arranged Michelle Robinson’s marriage to Barack Obama. Because of the personal risk the sources perceived they were taking to speak candidly about the president and his family, their identities have been masked.

As far as I’m concerned, there IS no Jesus in Wright’s church.

He is a long-time political supporter of President Barack Obama. Mikva offered Obama a law clerk position in his judicial office after Obama graduated from Harvard Law School; Obama declined the offer. US Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan was one of his law clerks.[4] Mikva became Obama’s political advisor and suggested he learn more effective public speaking from observing preachers. Mikva said of Obama: “He listened to patterns of speech, how to take people up the ladders. It’s almost a Baptist tradition to make someone faint, and, by God, he’s doing it now.

“Obama may say he’s a Christian, but he’s not,”

Well not sure what kind of 'Christian' Wright, his church or his followers are either? Not sure what kind of 'Christianity' Black Liberation Theolgy is for that matter.

Couldn’t agree more. Wright and his church is what happens when you preach a social gospel instead of chapter by chapter, verse by verse through the Bible.

I always thought he joined that church to get in Michelle's drawers.

Though I despise Rev. Wright...nobody has called him a liar and Rev. Wright says Barack came to him with a head-full of Islam mush.( Remember, Rev. Wright is an “apostate” himself)

Wright's "church" is nothing more than a cult, and I believe that most people here saw through the 0bama's little charade to cover his muzzie background a long time ago.

I have been a Baptist for all of my 71 years. I have NEVER heard of or have seen anyone faint in church due to the speaker.

Many years ago I learned that joining the biggest,most influential church in town was important if you wished to open a store in that town.

If you opened another store in a different town, you joined the biggest church there.

So a business owner might be a Baptist in one town and a Methodist in another town.

Anyone who doubts this should see the BIG BAPTIST CHURCHES in Rogers and Springdale, Arksansas. It is common knowlege that big business deals are made in the pews there as they are made on the local golf courses.

A lot of people join popular churches for networking reasons.

True. You want to be successful, you go where the town's big wigs are. It has nothing to do with religion. It has everything to do with appearance.

Not sure what kind of 'Christianity' Black Liberation Theolgy is for that matter.

It's a radical Black supremacist political movement hiding under the trappings of a church, not really any different that the radical White supremacist "Christian Identity" "churches." Simply two sides of the same radical, racist coin.

Both should be sued by the FTC for "false advertising," as neither conform to any definition of "Christian."

"The Mormons had people faint and go into trances and see things all the time in their early days"

So did revival meetings during both of the American "Great Awakenings". Jonathan Edwards wrote of it extensively and ultimately rejected it as emotionalism and not in the least indicative of regeneration.

I believe the topic was BAPTIST churches.

I will take a Mormon over a Communist/Marxist/Socialist any day period.
