There's nothing wrong with their being friends, it's
the relationship they have previously shared that troubles me.
Should Barack become the president, will he once again fall under the ati-American, racially divisive influence of Jermiah Wright? Wright hates
America, and he hates white people. Everything he's said for the past 20 years attests to that.
I see no problem with barack remaining friends with this guy. sure the guy has some very ridicules opinions. and he has mobilized a great
many people and organizations to follow him. but, and here is the kicker, not everyone who follows this man agrees with everything the man says. so
he has some whacked out views of white people and the government. so what. so do lots of people on this board.
His opinions are not just
ridiculous, they're racist and unpatriotic.
I grew up in a Baptist church. I almost never agreed with the preacher. however, from time to time I did believe what he said. depends on
the topic of discussion. lots of people who sit in those pews every Sunday agree only half the time with the preacher. they come for the
"fellowship, and for the food" as my preacher would say some times. I came because my parents made, but that is for a different thread.
I'm Baptist as well, but I've change churches several times because I didn't like the message being preached. I dislike profanity, I dislike
theatrics, and I most especially dislike insincerity. If you're going to preach the word of God, you should live your life according to it as
my point here is this. it takes a strong mind to see past someone's stupidity and still care deeply for them. to enjoy the differences in
yourselves. to argue the nuances of life with someone who disagrees. if done properly, both can grow from the experiences.
I don't think
Obama disagrees with the Reverend Wright. It was a political move denouncing his words. You don't spend 20 years in a church whose message you
disagree with. Barack is either extremely slow-witted and gullible, or simply a liar. Neither quality makes him suitable for President.
ill be willing to bet. it is hard for barack to have to face this. im sure both of these men want the same thing for the country. which is
change from the current course. but, both men have very different methods of change, as well as, reasons for the change.
I'm sure it is
difficult for him to face. The more people look at Reverend Wright, the more they look at him. I don't think Barack will be able to bear too much
I for one think it is showing a great deal of character for the way he has delt with this issue. very presidential. he still scares me
though. but, that is another thread.
I think Barack is lacking in character myself. The more lies he tells, the worse the outlook gets for
him. Wait till the MSM starts publicizing some of his wife's comments
about America and White people on national TV.
