    Blogs for John McCain ^ | March 14, 2008 | brianinmo
    I thought it might be interesting to see how people other than political junkies like me are reacting to the bombshell news about the statements of Barack Obama's longtime pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Many in the media are trying to gloss it over, or suggest it is on a par with radical statements by supporters who have endorsed Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Of course, they know that is a totally false comparison. The big deal in this story is that BARACK OBAMA HAS LISTENED TO THIS KIND OF ANTI-AMERICAN AND RACIAL HATRED FOR 20 YEARS AND WAS NOT BOTHERED ENOUGH...

    It was jarring. I 'd had gotten a heads up from some talk radio hosts, read some blog posts and saw a reference or two in newspaper campaign stories on this loose cannon Reverend Jeremiah Wright. I was thinking to myself that a Chicago pol like Obama would have some circus characters along for the ride. Then I saw the video of samples of his "sermons". There will be reams of spot on condemnation, analysis and guilty white men apologist justifications generated in the coming days. Masters of the spoken and written word from my side of the political/moral isle...

    So much controversy surrounds the church where Barack Obama has worshipped for two decades, the church whose retiring pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, has stirred a storm with his words about power in America -- words which Obama himself decried today as "appalling.'' So much of the racial divide that remains in America is reopened with debates over these words, followed by renunciations and demands for even greater repudiation, that it's refreshing to hear some words of common sense rising through clouds of polarizing venom. These words come from the congregation tonight. As the torch passes at Trinity United Church...

    American Thinker ^ | February 22, 2008 | Lee Cary
    The influence of the black liberation theology of James H. Cone appears in the political philosophy of Barack Obama as well as in the recent controversial statement about national pride made by Michelle Obama.  The spiritual role that Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ (UCC) and its just-retired pastor Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright have played in the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama is well-established, as is the Africentric theology that is the cornerstone of the church's self-proclaimed identity. One largely unexamined element of that Africentric theology, though, is the pivotal role that black liberation theologian Dr. James H. Cone,...

    CHICAGO, March 5 — The Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., senior pastor of the popular Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and spiritual mentor to Senator Barack Obama, thought he knew what he would be doing on Feb. 10, the day of Senator Obama’s presidential announcement. After all, back in January, Mr. Obama had asked Mr. Wright if he would begin the event by delivering a public invocation.But Mr. Wright said Mr. Obama called him the night before the Feb. 10 announcement and rescinded the invitation to give the invocation. “Fifteen minutes before Shabbos I get a call from...

Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side, has a long history of what even Obama's campaign aides concede is "inflammatory rhetoric," including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism."</p>

    CNN ^ | March 10, 2008
    (CNN) Several prominent leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention said Monday that Baptists have a moral responsibility to combat climate change -- a major shift within a denomination that just last year cast doubt on human responsibility for global warming. Forty-six influential members of the Southern Baptist Convention, including three of its last four presidents, criticized their denomination in a statement Monday for being "too timid" in confronting global warming. "Our cautious response to these issues in the face of mounting evidence may be seen by the world as uncaring, reckless and ill-informed," the statement says. "We can do...

    March 7, 2008 ( - This past Monday Oprah Winfrey, considered by many to be the world's most influential woman, began a ten-week long online course on the best-selling book, "A New Earth," by New Age guru, Eckhart Tolle. "A New Earth" has already sold some 3.5 million copies worldwide, thanks largely to the publicity given to it by Oprah. According to Oprah, 500,000 people from across the world signed on to the first segment of the online course, to spend an hour and a half listening to Ekhart and Oprah talking about chapter 1 of the book, and taking calls...

    HOUSTON (BP)--Ed Young, pastor of Second Baptist Church in Houston, said former President Bill Clinton's remarks about him at the New Baptist Covenant Celebration in Atlanta earlier this month came "out of the fantasy file" and were "completely inaccurate." Clinton, during the closing session of the celebration Feb. 1, spent several minutes recounting a visit Young made to the White House in 1993 as president of the Southern Baptist Convention when Young supposedly asked Clinton, "Do you believe the Bible is literally true?" Young, in a letter to Clinton released to Baptist Press, said he was stunned to read the...

You know, Michelle Obama is really kinduva remarkable woman. She's very, very forceful on the stump. She is a, ah, extraordinarily charismatic bundle of energy and intellect.

    Churches struggle with role in fixing climate change Julie Michaud TOMORROW Published Saturday January 26th, 2008 Appeared on page B8 The progress of climate change (which is occurring faster than researchers expected) is presenting the world with a challenge unlike any before: the need to act now in order to prevent irreversible disaster later. This delayed consequence is challenging to our natural human tendency to ignore calamity until it is on our doorstep. Should we choose to wait this time however, it will simply be too late. Before long, we will open the door only to be greeted by catastrophe...

    Giuliani often prays to Jesus...."I'm guided by the story of the woman about to be stoned, when Jesus said, 'He that hasn't sinned cast the first stone'"...... But Giuliani's biblical analogy drew guffaws from people who closely observed his tenure as mayor, when he often demonized others. " Mayor Giuliani wasn't just a stone-thrower. He was a boulder-thrower," said Baruch professor Doug Muzzio. "Rudy has had too many epiphanies.....strategic conversions on the road to the White House. We are not gullible."
  • Religion and Politics Clash (All Dem's kicked out of a Baptist church in NC)

    Religion and Politics Clash Religion and politics clash over a local church's declaration that Democrats are not welcome. East Waynesville Baptist asked nine members to leave. Now 40 more have left the church in protest. Former members say Pastor Chan Chandler gave them the ultimatum, saying if they didn't support George Bush, they should resign or repent. The minister declined an interview with News 13. But he did say "the actions were not politically motivated." There are questions about whether the bi-laws were followed when the members were thrown out.

    An officer with a state police force has confronted a team of college students on a spring break missions trip, telling them that handing out Christian literature is "shameful." In Pakistan? India? Perhaps Syria? Nope. In Utah. Not only that, but a second officer, this one with a local police force, confronted the same students just a day later, telling them that handing out such information was "looked down on here." Nelson Koon, of Hudsonville, Mich., and a junior at Frontier School of the Bible in LaGrange, Wyo., led the team of college students on their missions trip, and described...

    Ever since they lost the 2004 elections, Democrats have been falling all over themselves to proclaim their personal religious faith to an electorate that obviously cares about such things. So now the party that once ridiculed politicians who cite their personal values is trying to show that it can out-Jesus the GOP. They've been none too subtle about it - particularly New York's own Sen. Hillary Clinton. These days, she sounds more like she's running for dean of the local theological seminary than for president of the USA - er, that is, for re-election to the Senate. Hillary's latest tack...

    My wife is Catholic, I am not, but we both attend services at a local Catholic Church. Today the priest used the passage from Luke 6:27 to 38 (part of the Sermon on the Mount) as the basis for a pro-amnesty talk. Not once did he say any of the words "illegal" "identity theft" "smugglers" "criminal" or any of the other words you might use to describe someone who illegally enters the country and performs illegal acts while there.He made reference to the Bishop's position on this as well.My wife, a legal immigrant who went through the burdensome and expensive...

    ATLANTA --... Members of St. John's Lutheran Church last weekend filed by their pastor, hugging him and exchanging jokes. Many in the 350-member Atlanta congregation say they don't plan to let the Rev. Bradley E. Schmeling leave the pulpit Aug. 15, as ordered last week by an Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) disciplinary committee because he is in a gay relationship. ... "We are not an activist church, even though we can stand for issues of justice," said Charles Fox, who occasionally assists Schmeling at Sunday worship. "He exemplifies the kind of love and empathy I envision Christ to...

The core of the letter states: "We believe that the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth, one that has stood up to rigorous scrutiny and upon which much of human knowledge and achievement rests. To reject it as 'one theory among others' is to deliberately embrace scientific ignorance and transmit such ignorance...
