Is Obama's Pastor

I have heard others suggest Obama's Pastor is a racist and his church, an afro centric church, is racist.

Being Afro-Centric is not necessarily racist though. However I find these comments disturbing

"Black women are being raped daily in Darfur, Sudan, in the Congo and in Sub-Saharan Africa. That doesn't make news," Wright said in the August 2005 edition of Trumpet Magazine, a publication of his Trinity United Church of Christ.


But, "One 18-year-old white girl from Alabama gets drunk on a graduation trip to Aruba, goes off and 'gives it up' while in a foreign country, and that stays in the news for months!" he added. "Maybe I am missing something!"

"In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01," he wrote on page 7. "White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just 'disappeared,' as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring Black concerns."

Obama says he is "proud" of Wright and values their 20-year friendship.
Though Wright has nurtured Obama's political career as a close adviser and mentor, the Democrat presidential hopeful says they don't agree on everything. Wright married Obama and baptized his daughters.

"He brings a perspective that is helpful and honest," Wright said. "Minister Farrakhan will be remembered as one of the 20th and 21st century giants of the African-American religious experience."
Wright then held Farrakhan up as a pillar of "integrity."

Re: Is Obama's Pastor

I heard a lot of these quotes last week and must say, most disturbed me. To Obama's credit, I heard it reported in the mainstream press that he is distancing himself from his pastor because of these statements. I recall also hearing that Pastor Wright was supposed to be on stage with Obama when he announced his candidacy and was glaringly absent. Supposedly a last minute decision to scratch him from the announcement.

The only thing I heard is he distanced himself from "The Honorable Minister Farrakhan"

Apparently, Sean Hannity had the Reverend Wright on his TV show recently. I heard excerpts from that interview on his radio program last week. I am strictly quoting from what I heard there. Kind of like Thad

Re: Is Obama's Pastor

FYI


Barack Obama is a member of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama's spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright's daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said "truly epitomized greatness." That man is Louis Farrakhan.

Let's just hope he wins as the democratic nominee, so all can be exposed afterwards and the repulicans win.

I think if he wins as the Democratic nominee, he WILL be our next president.

I think you are right. Since republicans are not fairing well, they might be smart to vote hillary at the primary to guarantee her as the democratic nominee.
