    IRS Chief Counsel William Wilkins, one of two Obama political appointees at the agency and whose office reviewed certain Tea Party tax-exemption applications starting in early 2010, is a lawyer who defended Obama’s denomination, the United Church of Christ (UCC), when the IRS questioned its tax-exempt status following a speech by then-Senator Barack Obama in 2007. “We were so interested in the case, we offered to do it pro bono,” said Wilkins. … At the time of the IRS investigation, William J. Wilkins was working as a lobbyist for the WilmerHale legal firm, which eventually took up the cause of...

    OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIMSeptember 1, 2010 The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist. Leave aside Obama's fanatical opposition to allowing Illinois hospitals to save the lives of babies with God-given souls inadvertently born alive during abortions. Also leave aside the fact that neither of his parents were Christians. And leave aside his current crop of "spiritual advisers," which is a collection of Mother Earth worshippers, polytheists and other nonbelievers. Now rest from all that "leaving...

    Back in May, when the furor over Jeremiah Wright threatened to derail the Obama campaign, the candidate mournfully explained his decision to leave the controversial Trinity United Church of Christ. "We don't want to have to answer for everything that's stated in a church," Obama said. "On the other hand, we don't want to have a church subjected to the scrutiny that a presidential campaign legitimately undergoes." After Obama parted from Wright, the preacher and Trinity United became the campaign issue that dared not speak its name.
  • Eleanor Clift: Wright Had 'Prophetic Theology', Rick Warren 'Extremely Ignorant and Offensive'

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a voice crying in the wilderness that the mainstream media and middle class America weren't quite ready for and megachurch pastor Rick Warren is an ignorant evangelical rube who isn't totally without hope, given his awareness of AIDS and other favored liberal causes. That's essentially what Eleanor Clift preached to her choir in her December 19 "Capitol Letter" column, "Choosing a Church: Obama's next big decision -- and its implications." Wrote Sister Eleanor (emphasis mine): Black religious leaders did not stand up for Wright even as they understood and sympathized with the prophetic theology he was...

    For the first time since his retirement last spring, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. returned to the pulpit of Trinity United Church of Christ this morning with two goals: glorifying God and vilifying the media. In honor of Trinity's 47th anniversary, Wright preached Sunday worship services in place of Rev. Otis Moss III, who was attending his father's farewell from the pulpit of Olivet Institutional Baptist Church in Cleveland. Citing the revelation to Mary by the angel Gabriel that she would conceive a child to be born the Son of God, Wright said Mary's disbelief was similar to the doubts...
  • Despite Campaign Claim, Obama Told Paper He Attended Trinity Church ‘Every Week’

    (CNSNews.com) – President-elect Barack Obama said in 2004 – while he was a state legislator running for a U.S. Senate seat – that he attended services at Trinity United Church of Christ every week. This is in contrast to what Obama, as a presidential candidate, said this year after controversial anti-American remarks by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright surfaced. Obama then told news outlets that he did not attend the church frequently and was not aware of Wright’s comments. The comments from Obama about his church attendance appeared in the transcript of an interview posted Tuesday on the religious news Web...

    It seems America owes an apology to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the one-time spiritual leader of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and Barack Obama's former pastor. He says those now-infamous, anti-American statements he made from the pulpit were taken out of context. "The world doesn't know about my 41 years of ministry, or my writing of books, because it was all taken down to a 10-second sound bite that the media chose to show about a sermon that was delivered seven years ago," the Rev. Wright said Thursday night at a gathering in Milford. "The media didn't care...

    At Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side, where President-elect Barack Obama embraced Christianity, the congregation rejoiced today and shouted, "Yes, We did!" Hundreds of worshipers packed into the sanctuary for a joyous service that celebrated the church's role in the spiritual awakening of a future president. Trinity's pastor, Rev. Otis Moss III, said history would note that Trinity was the holy place where "God stirred a young man's soul and put him on the path to the presidency." "You have much to be proud of this morning," Moss said. "We rejoice today." In his memoirs and campaign...

    "Out of one, many.” That was how Al Gore famously botched “E Pluribus Unum,” the motto chiseled on the great seal of the United States. Barack Obama’s Latin may not be any better than Gore’s — he did have to admit being an English-only kinda guy this summer . . . after complaining that Americans embarrass him with their lack of language proficiency. Understand this, though: If we hear the Democrats’ standard-bearer saying, “Out of one, many,” it won’t be a mistranslation. It will be a succinct statement of his ideology. It’s the “fundamental change” he has in mind for...

    Here. Okay...I use the word "discovered" a bit loosely--the way one might "discover" a Big Mac at McDonald's. But now that I have your attention, the point is that most voters don't have a clue that Obama writes in his memoir that the very first time he attended Trinity United Church, he heard Rev. Wright rant that "white folks' greed runs a world in need." As you may recall, Obama said, following Rev. Wright's infamous press club appearance in April, that "The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago." The racist Rev. Wright...

    Content of "disappeared" Trinity United Church of Christ bulletins could cost Obama the election. Napoleon's general Antoine Charles Louis Lasalle once told an associate, “My friend, any hussar who does not die by thirty is a blackguard.” We would not have appointed someone with this attitude to a command during the horse and musket era of warfare, because cavalry was too expensive an instrument to throw away in swashbuckling, glorious, but suicidal enterprises. Our ideal commanders would have instead had enough common sense to stay well away from intact infantry formations that presented solid hedges of fixed bayonets, but enough...

    If a Presidential candidate was not only an enabler of racists and anti-Semites, but also an actual racist, would it be worth $10.17 to know that before you vote? $10.17 is the Amazon.com price for Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father, and used copies can be purchased for considerably less. As opposed to the smears and urban legends that are circulating about Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin, the following quotes from Dreams From My Father (paperback, ISBN 978-1-4000-8277-3) all have page numbers so you can verify for yourself that Barack Obama wrote this material. If you can find the book at a...

    Barack Obama’s former pastor has been cavorting with another man’s wife, whom he romanced while she worked at a church in Dallas run by one of his disciples, according to a report in the New York Post. Elizabeth Payne, 37, told the Post that she and Rev. Jeremiah Wright, 67, had a sexual relationship this year and that she was fired from her job when the affair was made public. Payne had been working at Friendship-West Baptist Church as a secretary to the Rev. Frederick Haynes III, a longtime Wright protege.

Barack Obama at Café Baci, a small coffee joint at 330 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago, to interview him exclusively about his spirituality. Our conversation took place a few days after he'd clinched the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat that he eventually won. We spoke for more than an hour. He came alone. He answered everything I asked without notes or hesitation. The...

    "Obama has never been a Muslim, and is a committed Christian” Senator Barack Hussein Obama claims to be a Christian; however, he gives no evidence of that. In fact, his heretical statement indicates that he, like many others, is simply a professor rather than a possessor of Christ. His revealing statement: “I believe there are many paths to the same place.” He is correct if one wants to go to Hoboken but not if one wants to go to Heaven. Christ is still the only way. One does not have to be a Christian to be a good President, and...
