  • Obama: Christians who take religion most seriously ‘suspicious of those not like them’

    The Washington Times ^ | 10/12/2015 | Jessica Chasmar
    In a wide-ranging conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson, President Obama suggested that Christians who take their religion the most seriously often adopt an “us versus them” mentality. In the interview, published in the Nov. 5 issue of The New York Review of Books, the president lamented “the fact that here in the United States, sometimes Christian interpretation seems to posit an ‘us versus them,’ and those are sometimes the loudest voices. “But sometimes I think you also get frustrated with kind of the wishy-washy, more liberal versions where anything goes,” Mr. Obama said, referring to Ms. Robinson. “How...

    The controversial pastor who preached at a church attended by President Obama said on Saturday that “Jesus was a Palestinian,” alluded to Israel as an apartheid state and compared “the youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine” during a speech in Washington, D.C. Jeremiah Wright, who led Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago from 1972 to 2008, spoke at a Nation of Islam event titled “Justice or Else!” on the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.

    The controversial religious leader Jeremiah Wright compared Native Americans to Palestinians at the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March on the National Mall on Saturday, going so far as to assert that “Jesus was a Palestinian." Wright, who once served as pastor to President Obama, was one of several hours' worth of speakers in Washington, D.C., for an event called “Justice or Else!” that sought to channel the energy of the Black Lives Matter movement. Wright placed the event in historical context. “The same issue is being fought today and has been fought since 1948, and historians are carried...

    What does the man who thundered, “God damn America!” have to say in the age of Black Lives Matter? It didn’t seem like the proper setting for an angry, anti-American firebrand. An amiable crowd was milling around the fellowship hall of the United Church of Chapel Hill on a Saturday morning, slurping coffee and eating bagels. Posters advertised trips to the Holocaust Museum, advocated for LGBT rights, and warned against ableism, with helpful definitions. The crowd skewed white and, as in many churches, older, but befitting this college town, it was an eclectic bunch: aging granola grandmas, middle-aged men in...

    Once again the media are hyping an issue that has nothing to do with the problems confronting this nation. Shame on them for trying to manufacture a controversy -- again -- about President Obama's faith. During a town hall event for Donald Trump in Rochester, New Hampshire, Thursday night, a questioner said that Obama is a Muslim and that "he's not even an American." Democrats, the media and some Republicans pounced on Trump for not condemning the questioner. For all the media's obsession over it since, you'd think Trump himself called Obama the 12th imam.

    John Heilemann was a rather reluctant witness. But when called on to testify, so to speak, Heilemann confirmed a stunning fact: that during the 2008 presidential race, it was Hillary Clinton who started the rumor that Barack Obama might not be a Christian. The matter arose when on today's Morning Joe. Joe Scarborough ripped Hillary's hypocrisy on Face the Nation yesterday for criticizing Republicans who question Obama's religion, "when it all started with her and her campaign passing things around in the [2008] Democratic primary." When Steve Rattner asked Heilemann, in his role as inside-campaign-baseball expert, to confirm whether Joe's...

    Seven long years into the presidency of Barack Obama, The Washington Post continues its obsessive quest to suggest that Obama may be lying when he professes to be a Christian. The latest fringe assertion from the Post about Obama’s religion emanated this weekend from national political correspondent James Hohmann. A previous instance occurred in February. Both recent times when the Post raised questions about Obama’s private religious beliefs, the newspaper also focused on Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker. The reasons that the Post has used reporting about Walker to channel its bizarre questions about Obama’s Christianity remain unclear. At a...

    Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, a black Muslim nationalist group, is calling for war. A race war, because to Farrakhan, like all in the Race Industry, everything is about race. Farrakhan made the call in a speech in Chicago, Barack Obama’s home, where he claimed that blacks have been oppressed for hundreds of years by whites. He called for reckoning because of the “iniquities of their fathers.” His rant focused on the shooting of the criminal thug, Michael Brown, as he attacked a white police officer with the intent to murder him. Farrakhan conveniently left out...

    Jefferson, a member of the gentry of Old Virginia, was always regarded as one of the best and brightest of his generation, a gentleman of the finest intellect, taste, and manners. Although Jefferson loved and was loyal to the Union, he was a Virginian first and an American second; Virginia, Jefferson avowed, was his “country.” This order of allegiance – State over Union, or “Society” over “the State” – was firmly rooted in the Old South. Accordingly, in the emerging conflict between the North and the South, Jefferson sided with his own country. “It is true that we are completely...

Now, four years later, there appears to be audio recordings of Wright that may be damaging to Obama as well. Those recordings, allegedly in the possession of author Edward Klein, consist of Wright telling Klein some unflattering things, to include charges that Obama attempted to silence Wright in 2008. One claim had to do with ObamaÂ’s Christianity. During an appearance on Sean HannityÂ’s radio show, Klein said that Wright wouldnÂ’t go so far as to say he converted Obama from Islam...

    Rudy Giuliani has been attacked by the Left for correctly saying, “I do not believe that the president loves America." Giuliani wasn’t wrong about that and he could have just as easily said, “Liberals don’t love America.” Sure, there are a few exceptions, but they just prove the rule. Most liberals detest America, want to fundamentally change it and are disgusted by people who really love the country. Don’t believe it?

    You may be wondering why President Obama has been mum on the subject of Libya until tonight, even though for the last week Dictator Maummar Gaddafi has been massacring people on his streets. One possible reason is that the White House does not know how to spell "Libya." Another: President Obama's spiritual leader, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, has been tied to Gaddafi. This is not to necessarily imply that President Obama didn't criticize Gaddafi because he favors Gaddafi's regime, but that the President had trepidation because he was aware of his pastor's ties to the iron-fisted ruler.

"Struggle" is a common term used to describe the communist agenda. Ever wonder why the NoI is so closely linked to the revolutionary communist Black Panther Party?

The communist terror organization, Weather Underground, were also proponents of "Black Liberation Theology".

    Justice is the furthest thing from what is going on in Ferguson.  That’s not because the legal system, as it’s constructed, failed.  The legal system did not fail.  A grand jury’s job is to decide whether to issue an indictment when potential charges have been presented.  The St. Louis County grand jury, a body of laypeople, not law enforcement, lawyers, or politicians, examined evidence in the Michael Brown shooting for three months.  They decided not to issue an indictment on any charge against officer Darren Wilson.  The legal system worked. What has failed is leadership. When President Obama took office,...

Why not?

    The daughter of President Barack Obama's former pastor was convicted on Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a state grant for a Chicago-area job-training program, federal prosecutors said. A federal jury took less than two hours to find Jeri Wright, 48, the daughter of Jeremiah Wright, guilty on all counts for her part in a fraud scheme led by a former suburban police chief and the chief's husband, according to the U.S. Attorney's office for the Central District of Illinois in Springfield. The $1.25 million state grant was for a not-for-profit work and education program called We Are Our...

    No one gasped Wednesday night at St. James United Methodist Church as the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. spoke. No one in the packed multiracial audience got up in disgust and walked out. But people did laugh a lot, applaud a great deal and gave the controversial pastor emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago a standing ovation after his hour-long lecture titled “Another World is Possible.” Wright made headlines in 2008 for sermons viewed as critical of America when he was presidential candidate Barack Obama’s longtime minister. Obama denounced Wright, left the church and went on to...

    Obama’s Muslim Easter and Willful Ignorance Posted By Robert Spencer On April 25, 2014 In Daily Mailer,FrontPage In his Easter message last Saturday, Barack Obama asserted that the “common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.” Even though he was registered as a Muslim in primary school in Indonesia and recounts in his first autobiography that he got in trouble there for making faces in Qur’an class, Obama apparently recalls little of the contents of...

    [1]Back in 1962, Robert Gover published a novel called the One Hundred Dollar Misunderstanding [2] whose premise Amazon describes this way: “A college sophomore spends a weekend with a pretty 14-year-old black prostitute under the manly misapprehension that she has invited him because she finds him irresistible.”I remember reading it as an undergraduate and finding it mildly amusing. Of course, inflation being what it is, it’s hard to write a book about a piddling hundred dollar misunderstanding anymore. But somehow the novel came to mind today when reading one of my favorite websites — The College Fix [3]. The...

    Inequity is a problem minorities in Detroit face on several fronts, attendees of the Michigan Roundtable Equity Action Summit Saturday at Detroit's Cobo Center said. The all-day event involved the sharing of stories from people who said they are victims of the unfair systems that punish blacks and other minorities related to public transportation, housing and the criminal justice system. Groups talked about the issues and developed strategies to resolve them. Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Baack Obama's Chicago pastor whose known for controversial sermons damning America and saying the government brought 9/11 upon itself, was the keynote speaker. Monica Lewis...

    Leave it to the sleazy down-home Democrats of the Midwest to steal more than $16 Million from various charities, including one for those suffering from AIDS. Also not so surprising, several of the scammers have ties to President Barack Obama, including one who happens to be related to President Obama’s friend and former pastor Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright. The U.S. attorney’s office in Springfield has been busy the past few years investigating a variety of fraud schemes involving state grants. Thirteen people have been charged so far, six who have pleaded guilty. Two of them have ties to President...

    SPRINGFIELD—The daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s former minister, was convicted by a federal jury Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a $1.25 million state grant for a Chicago-based job-training program.

"I didn't do anything," Wright, 48, of Hazel Crest, said as she left the Springfield courtroom.
