New Hood for Obama's Pastor
Modern Conservative ^ | Clark Baker

Posted on 03/29/2008 7:06:40 AM PDT by connell

As much as Barack Obama's pastor hates whitey, he apparently hates black people more.

Jeremiah Wright's new 10,340 square foot four bedroom home is surrounded not by his loving black flock, but inside the gated community in Tinley Park, where only 1.9 percent of his neighbors are black.

Jeff Goldblatt (Fox News) also reports that Wright purchased the property for $345K in 2004 and sold it to his church (Trinity) in 2006 for $308K, with the proceeds going to a...

Wright purchased the property for $345K in 2004 and sold it to his church (Trinity) in 2006 for $308K, with the proceeds going to a living trust shared with his wife. His church then secured a $1.6 million mortgage for the home with a $10 million credit line.

so, his black church paid for this?? What a hypocrit besides being a bare-faced liar. Well, if his black congregation are stupid enough to believe......then they deserve it.

I guess the right Rev. Wright gets a little nervous when he sees a black man walking towards him on a sidewalk.

Poor Wright has it so bad in this racist G*d damn KKK country. America has been so bad to him he can only afford a 10,000 square foot house. He would have been better off staying in Africa where he could be living in a 10x10 mud hut where he belongs.

He would be afraid if he didn’t know the TRUTH. He’s a liar. Wouldn’t be interesting if the IRS seized all the church assets? The house is owned by the church, so, wonder what would happen to the good Rev then?

It’s typical, isn’t it? Yell and scream and blame whitey but when it comes to the neighborhoods, shopping or schools, here come the Jeremiah Bullfrogs.

Good morning.
“Well, I guess it’s no secret how he feels about his White neighbors, eh?”

I'd be more interested in knowing how his new neighbors feel about having him there.

Here’s a man who trashes America and divides black and white. He’s angry and stands in the pulpit influencing thousands to follow his example. Now he lives with “whities” in a gated community. Isn’t God good? Wonder what his digs would look like back in Africa where he came from and where the races are pure and the white man is oppressed, his lands confiscated? I think he should go back and leave this terrible country that has so abused him and the black man.

Like many pastors in America he is just telling his congregation what they want to hear.

Yep, he's learned that a crooked pastor can shear his sheep many times but you can only skin them once.

His new house which is being built is described in this link:

Obama pastor building home in Odyssey

March 28, 2008
From staff reports
A $1 million home is being built in Tinley Park for the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., the controversial pastor to Barack Obama.

Plans filed with the village show a 10,340-square-foot, four-bedroom home under construction in the Odyssey subdivision is for the Trinity United Church of Christ minister. The church is paying for the home.

Wright made news this month when video surfaced showing him using racial slurs while blasting Obama’s rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton. Wright also blamed global terrorism on American foreign policy, saying this country’s “chickens had come home to roost.”

Wright’s two-story house will have finished basement, along with two decks, a circular driveway, room for a future swimming pool or theater, a four-car garage, elevator, family room with bar, master bathroom with whirlpool and custom shower and master bedroom with fireplace and under-counter fridge.”

So his new home in a lilly white locked gate community will be a Million Dollar Baby.
