Obama is having a hard time explaining his involvement in a church where the preacher has been notoriously preaching hate against the white community.
These comments are not new to the black community or the white community. Both races have been guilty of preaching such dogma and hate. The difference here is that Obama is running for the highest office in the world, the President of the United States of America. For Obama to claim that he had no knowledge of Reverend Wright’s speaking of such things is ridiculous. He attended this church for over 20 years. His children were taught by this preacher and he and his wife were married by this preacher. To claim now that he had “no knowledge” of this offensive language is obviously misleading.
Does this mean that he can’t be a good president? Americans will have to decide.
But I will tell you this. I don’t approve of those who will sit in a church and listen to hate being preached against other segments of our community such as Gays and Lesbians, Hispanics, ranting about the justification of 9-11 because America is tolerant of Homosexuality and therefore god is punishing our nation with the likes of Katrina, and other natural disaster.
Both are offensive and one is no worse than the other. I won’t vote for someone who believes in either of these views. I resent that they are allowed to influence my government with those beliefs and I resent that they have influence on our courts.
Black anger, Gay anger, Hispanic anger, economic anger, are all real and it is up to us to insure that we don’t put anymore religious zealots from any one of these basis in the Whitehouse.
The “more perfect union” means that we don’t tolerate such hate speech coming from the church pulpit or from the Whitehouse lawn.
