Because Wright went on a national speaking tour acting as Obama's unofficial spokeman after he and Michelle went over to his house and begged him not to.

quote:

Senator Barack Obama is not a Muslim, contrary to invidious rumors. But he belongs to a Christian church whose doctrine casts Jesus Christ as a "black messiah" and blacks as "the chosen people". At best, this is a radically different kind of Christianity than most Americans acknowledge; at worst it is an ethnocentric heresy




quote:

During the black-power heyday of the late 1960s, after the murder of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr, the mentors of Wright decided that blacks were the Chosen People. James Cone, the most prominent theologian in the "black liberation" school, teaches that Jesus Christ himself is black. As he explains:
Christ is black therefore not because of some cultural or psychological need of black people, but because and only because Christ really enters into our world where the poor were despised and the black are, disclosing that he is with them enduring humiliation and pain and transforming oppressed slaves into liberating servants.
Theologically, Cone's argument is as silly as the "Aryan Christianity" popular in Nazi Germany, which claimed that Jesus was not a Jew at all but an Aryan Galilean, and that the Aryan race was the "chosen people". Cone, Hopkins and Wright do not propose, of course, to put non-blacks in concentration camps or to conquer the world, but racially-based theology nonetheless is a greased chute to the nether regions.

Because he was a lose cannon and he wasn't part of the campaign. With the exception wives, friends and family members have no business acting as spokesmen for Presidential candidates. Do you remember the bruhaha that ensued when Newt Gingrich's mom started discussing politics with Connie Chung or when John McCain's mom started discussing Mormonism with Jay Leno?

*Gasp* a Jeremiah Wright jab? Tell me more about how Obama is a Kenyan Muslim.


In truth, all religion is fantasy that has no place in public discourse. Romney is entitled to his belief in aliens and his right to wear special underpants, but he is not entitled to force those beliefs or his personal morality down the public's throat.

How are these anything alike? He attended his church for 20 years and was wed by Jeremiah Wright. The same Jeremiah Wright's church that preaches black liberation theology and that black's are the chosen people.

When has he ever done any of this. He barely ever even talks about it.

He barely mentions his Mormonism, because studies show that people think Mormonism is fricking crazy. Because Mormonism is fricking crazy.

On the other hand, he fully embraces the unholy union of business special interests and zealous evangelicals that characterizes the modern GOP. He tows the line on abortion, gay marriage, and every other social issue that the GOP wants to use as justification for legislating morality.

Decreasingly so, and "religious" hardly means "evangelical". It's the evangelicals that have managed to aggregate too much power in the GOP, and it's going to alienate the rest of the country.

If "they" is the GOP, I think you can tell from the trending of American culture towards secularism that playing the "God hates libruls" card won't work for much longer.

You are ignorant if you think this country is becoming more secular. What is your basis for this? You do the large amount of the democratic base is very religious, minorities, catholics, and jews. But keep believing your view that this country is becoming less religious.....

As a rule of thumb: before sharing your opinions, make sure they're based on statistically verifiable facts. I try my best. Although apparently I'm "ignorant".

It was a reference to the cliched tropes conservatives use to attack Obama.

You obviously missed the point. Maybe I should word it better. Good luck ever winning a swing state again turning your backs against religion. Sorry the more liberal, more populous cities are turning their backs on religion.
