A year ago on Hannity & Colmes, that little ignorant loud-mouthed bigot Jeremiah Wright was pummelling Sean Hannity on the air about whether Sean had read any of James Cone's work.
Jeremiah Wright credits James Cone as being a founder of "Black Theology" which Wright says forms the very foundational beliefs of Barack Obama's Church:
"Black liberation theology started with Jim Cone in 1968... Do you know liberation theology?... How many books of Cone's have you read? How many books of Cone's have you read?"
~ Rev. Jeremiah Wright,
explaining his Church while berating Sean Hannity, 3/1/07.
Well for 20 YEARS Obama was an active member and close associate of this "Black Theology" Church founded on the ideas of James Cone - founded on THESE ideas:
"Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community.Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love."
And here's even more goodness and love from the Founder of Obama's "Black Theology" Religion, James Cone:
~ James Cone, quoted in Divine Racism: The Unacknowledged Threshold Issue for Black Theology, by William R. Jones in African-American Religious Thought: An Anthology, edited by Cornel West and Eddie Glaube (Westminster John Knox Press).
"For white people, Gods reconciliation in Jesus Christ means that God has made black people a beautiful people; and if they are going to be in relationship with God, they must enter by means of their black brothers, who are a manifestation of Gods presence on earth. The assumption that one can know God without knowing blackness is the basic heresy of the white churches. They want God without blackness, Christ without obedience, love without death. What they fail to realize is that in Amereica, Gods revelation on earth has always been black, red, or some other shocking shade, but never white. Whiteness, as revealed in the history of America, is the expression of what is wrong with man. It is a symbol of mans depravity. God cannot be white even though white churches have portrayed him as white. When we look at what whiteness has done to the minds of men in this country, we can see clearly what the New Testament meant when it spoke of the principalities and powers. To speak of Satan and his powers becomes not just a way of speaking but a fact of reality. When we can see a people who are controlled by an ideology of whiteness, then we know what reconciliation must mean. The coming of Christ means a denial of what we thought we were. It means destroying the white devil in us. Reconciliation to God means that white people are prepared to deny themselves (whiteness), take up the cross (blackness) and follow Christ (black ghetto)."
THAT is the foundational doctrine of Obama's "Black Theology" Church that he CHOSE to join and that he CHOSE to stay in.
~ James Cone, from Black Theology and Black Power, quoted in The Decline of African American Theology: From Biblical Faith to Cultural Captivity by Thabiti M. Anyabwile (Orbis), page 150.
THAT is the belief system that he just couldn't leave to go find a more rational and less racist and hate-based theology.
THAT is the belief system that he CHOSE to stay in and baptize and raise his children under.
Obama comes across to the public as a very quiet, reasonable man - yet he is a very devoted adherent and follower of the most vile, bigotted hate-spewing radical racist GARBAGE of the lowest possible level.
So either he's the most naive and ignorant member of his Church's congregation - or else he just doesn't CARE how vile and hateful his Church's belief system and Pastor is.
Black liberation theology
It's absolutely appalling that Obama can stand by and continue to associate with this man. It demonstrates a profound lack of judgement. Who would he appoint to be his advisors and cabinet members? Rev. Wright as Sec. of State? Al Sharpton as Sec. of HHS? Louis Farakkhan as Sec. of Defense? What evidence do we have that his administration would not include people like this?

Well I’ve heard it called “Black theology” and I’ve heard it called “Black nationalism”
Sounds to me like nothing more than “Black RACISM!”
And what is most troubling to me is that there are evidently MANY of these “churches” and Blacks who follow this belief.
Between the Black racists, Muzzies, the Aryan Nation & the La Raza crowd;
we are gonna have one hellofa war in this country before too long!
