Obama has to have been influenced

  • Follow Letters

I have waited and watched. I have paced and grumbled. But it is time to come clean: Barack Obama is a radical maniac. His recent defense for the "reverend" Jeremiah Wright as a pastor and spiritual leader should open the eyes of every Democrat in the United States, then make them cry tears of reality.

His defense of Wright was, as I would expect, that Wright's comments were shameful, but he did not disown or denounce the reverend in any way. Obama recently commented to ABC News: "This is somebody who I knew for 20 years. He was my pastor, he wasn't my political adviser. He wasn't somebody who was, you know, shaping my thoughts about most issues."

As a practicing Christian, just as Obama is, I let God and the denomination that I choose shape my beliefs and values, be they personal or political. Obama's political actions should mimic his core Christian beliefs. A pastor does not simply believe on certain Sundays that America was to blame for the Sept. 11 attacks. He does not "damn" America only when he is riled up. These are beliefs that the pastor has, and as a result, his congregation should share.

The Obamas attended this church for more than 20 years, and he expects us to believe that he had never before heard these radically insane and crazy comments?

As a voting Republican, I have advice for liberals: Get your act together. They fought a hard battle in 2006 to gain control of Congress, but once again, they are about to destroy what should be a close election. It scares me to think that if this election is lost by the Republicans, that we would have to live under a lunatic such as Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton for president 2008!

Show you? doub, Are you kidding. READ. The "one clip" that you seem to keep referencing is from SEVERAL sermons. Besides.....let's assume it WAS only one sermon. Would that make what he said be any less repulsive?

i'm not sure i believe obama

i'm not sure i believe obama to be a black supremicist as many seem to think. sure, he is a member of a church with pastors that espouse a very extreme position; but he is still an elected official and there are plenty of checks and balances in place to prevent him from acting on any of the radical ideas. remember the furor over electing a Catholic? the quality of a man's ideas, not those of his associates, should be the final consideration. i'm not sure what obama stands for as a statesman; i won't judge him on his personal religious beliefs, no matter how unsavory i find them.

That is right bone. We don't

That is right bone. We don't know what Obama stands for because he offers only "change". Hillary is methodically espousing her ideas and programs. The voting populace is just dumb as dirt. Let's go for the unknown who offers nothing but rhetoric, but he gives a good speech. I can get that warm feeling and a good speech Sunday morn at church. Just like Obama at his church. hee, hee.

i hear you rozzie, but folks

i hear you rozzie, but folks on here don't like it when you bash their buffoon,homo,loser president. he's keeping us safe from ther' terrorists, yeah like him and cheney! folks, read your bible and try to comprehend it.the israelis were slaves more times then they care to remember.that's the way it was then.you want to argue with someone as to why it happened then argue with God.he was very alive then as he is now and nothing happened without him knowing about it millions of years before it actually occurred.there is a reason for everything you can't figure it out so why keep trying? some say that the apparent curse on the black race is because of one of noah's sons.any scholars on here,besides the clown squeakypete?

That clip is from one

That clip is from one sermon.The date on the camera never changes look at it on you tube and then comment John. Yeah Wright was his mentor so what. His grandmother also made many remarks as he said in his speech but he did not disown her.I'm quite sure many of you have friends that make comments and you don't disown them.Wright is not running for the presidency.A mentor pushes an understudy to be better than them. If Obama is elected don't be alarmed you will still be the majority in this country John.

Republicant, read all about

Republicant, read all about black slave owners in The Annals of America publiched by Encycopedia Britannica, Inc. Also South Carolina, A History by Walter Edgar. There were plenty of free blacks, Republicant. You don't honestly think they were all slaves. People were granting slaves freedom even in the South before the Civil War. Slavery was slowly going away.

Wright is just dumb as dirt.

Wright is just dumb as dirt. Jesus was not a black man. The current dominant opinion among historians and scientists is that he most likely had olive skin, resembling modern-day persons of Middle Eastern descent. The bible attest that he looked like everyone else and blended in with the populace to disappear. In revelation in his transfigured appearance he has white hair and glows white. He is jewish and a typical olive skinned person from that region. It won't take much for Obama to be pushed to better than his mentor. Poor choice for a mentor-can't even get preach the gospel.

Kathy you are right. But the free slaves lived on self-sufficient Islands such as Duafuskie and Hilton Head which they no longer own due to the fact that they couldn't pay the taxes because they didn't work on the mainland. The war wasn't about slavery northerners wanted the south to become more industrialized.

Greenjacket,I agree and don't

Greenjacket,I agree and don't you sense a trap in this dialogue. I am thinking that some of the contributors here are disciples spreading the gospel of the BLT themselves by setting up the entire conversation. This Theology may not be about hate, but it is certainly about the absense of love, therefore it is not Godly. Poor excuse for a religion if you ask me.

double standard. Even if PT

double standard. Even if PT is the grand wizard, you can't hold her accountable for her association to that group. Just because they are racist and she was a member for 20 years does not in any way mean she is racist. Maybe she didn't know about thier racial intentions? Maybe the meetings that SHE went to were just the one's with the bingo games and "movie night." You can in no way assume that she had any knowlege that it was a racial organization.....even if it stated so on their website. (I hope my satire isn't lost here)

Scientist and Historians (who

Scientist and Historians (who actually have studied the issue in detail) have drawn "evidence based" conclusions not revisionist made up crap. If the evidence gave credence he was black then that is what they would have announced. Judaism covers many races as the bible attest-remember the twelve tribes. It reminds me of the DNA and Book of Mormon paradox. The mormons have had to face the fact DNA does not support their belief.

Oh, oh all the angry

Oh, oh all the angry Republicans are out in mass--led by none other than PT. I think all liberals should just stop posting their ideas and beliefs on this forum. Don't you see that these rabid republicans are like the poor folks just release from the polygamist compound. they are total indoctrinated in Jeffs --I mean Bush and Rush doctrine. They can only give you canned answers; their is not a thought in their cloned minds that is original. They are like pigs to a sty feeding at the altar of their republican dogma.
