I missed it, again. ((sigh))
Thanks for the thread SE Mom.
There have been postings about BHOs church and its pastor on this site since February of 07 and the media has picked it up just in the last week or so. Some damn good reporters out there, huh? /s
Thank you for the link.....

Obama has chutzpah. He, the son of a white American mother and an African father, is an Ivy League educated Senator from a white State who is running for President of the country. But he would rather hang out with an America-hating minister.
Many, many people want all things Clinton, and many of those believe that hillary is a Clinton without a man's sexual baggage. - and they are right.
The straight GOP is outnumbered this time around, the dems are snorting and ready to run over broken glass to vote, the money is pouring in, and unless that rainbow tent can be cracked open, we are going to lose, and lose big.
Thank you for the post. - bill
Every one of those voters will go to the polls and vote for her.
They don’t even have to hold their nose.
Race relations were setback for many of us when the OJ verdict came out...maybe sooner then that!
I don’t agree obviously, but time will tell.
May events unfold in such a way that we are both happy.
Thank you for your post. - bill
Oddly enough, after a mere nearly three decades of politics and political analysis, my take is exactly the opposite.

Clearly, we went to different schools together. 8^)
All I can say is, OPERATION CHAOS !!!
Thanks, babe ............... Smootches
There's a lot of cream in that coffee.
I was born in Africa and I'm darker than him and Whitney Houston.
Best Line Of The Day (as heard from a caller to the “Grandy & Andy Morning Show”, 630 WMAL) —
If Obama is president and the phone rings at 3 o’clock in the morning, and there’s a crisis or catastrophe in the world, who is he going to call? He’s going to call the Rev. Jeremiah Wright!”
This caller is so right.
My dad was in the army so I lived most of my childhood in Germany and in different places overseas. For this reason I think that I wasn’t brainwashed with this filth that is taught in so many black churches. I went to one church in Houston one time when I was a kid and I remember this kinda garbage being spewed. All I can say is thank God that I didn’t get draped in this too. I think that since my parents weren’t particularly religous and the fact that I grew up mostly overseas it gives me a totally different view of America as a black man. Basically, I love the country and wouldn’t trade it for anything. And yes while there is a very and I mean very small amount of racism in this country it really isn’t a big deal. My fellow black people make it a big deal because since they were little they were basically taught to hate white people. It’s a fact. Its stupid and illogical for a host of reasons:
1. Fact: At the height of slavery, which was so damn long ago I don’t even know why we still even have to talk about it, only 3 percent of Americans owned slaves. Yep only 3 whole percent. You had to be extremely weathly to own slaves back then.
2. Fact: America wasn’t the only country in the world that had slavery so I don’t understand why my people think we’re so unique when it comes to oppression. I could name 60 countries including AFRICA by the way that had slaves.
3. Fact: America went to war to end slavery. 600,000 lives were lost to end slavery. A president was killed because he wanted to end slavery. His successor was almost impeached. Obviously most Americans knew it was wrong.
I could go on for days about how great this country is and why we as Black people should be damn proud and feel lucky to be here. Sadly I can’t say this outloud around any of my co-workers or friends. I’m sure you can understand why. Hell most of them have been so brainwashed they actually believe that garbage Wright was spilling. They walk around angry and mad at the world because “the man is keepin us down” and all this bull.
My only thing that I would tell other Americans reading this post is to stand up to Blacks and tell them the facts. Don’t let them “guilt” you into feeling sorry for something you personally didn’t do. I mean just from a logic standpoint it’s crazy if think about it but most black people have been conditioned to think this:
“I should be mad at white people because of the slavery which I myself have not experienced and they themselves have not commited.”
Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Just realize it was something that was common place back then and get over it. Slavery was not unique to America or white people.
But I tell you what is unique about America, freedom, capitalism, justice, generousity. The world would be a very cold dark place without America.
By any chance do you have a cached copy of the church's web page with their charter. I saw it posted on FR some time ago and it was even more explicit and with more bullet points, but I can't find it now. It has been scrubbed from the current records of the church. Thanks.
Loved your post!
