Another Obama Preacher

This isn’t exactly the same situation as the Reverend Wright controversy because unlike Wright, Michael Pfleger was not the person from whom Barack Obama received twenty years of spiritual guidance. However, Obama has some more explaining to do about his Trinity pseudo-church in Chicago.

We’re all familiar with the racist Wright who closely counseled and preached to Obama for 20 years. At the time, Obama tried to explain Wright away by pretending that Wright had been taken out of context, something that’s a little hard to do when the “church” itself has a mission statement like this. Now if it was difficult for Obama to explain away his radical “church” before, just imagine how hard it will be now that the church decided to bring in a preacher who gives sermons like this one:

The problem for Obama, other than the fact that this type of speech is what repetitive campaign commercials are made of, is that no one took Reverend Wright out of context and no one is taking Michael Pfleger out of context. When one considers the “church’s” mission statement, Reverend Wright’s sermons, Pfleger’s sermons, the fact that the candidate’s wife was never proud of her country, the fact that Obama himself stopped wearing the American flag on his lapel in September 12, 2001, then it is obvious why the candidate views the American people with such contempt.

With values like these (and he must share them otherwise he would not have maintained his close relationship with Wright or remained in the pews for 20 years), it is no wonder why Obama has such little faith in people’s abilities that his only policy prescriptions involve government solutions. With values like these, it is no wonder why he has so little understanding of real Christianity that he claims people “cling” to the beliefs out of bitterness.  With values like these, it is also no wonder that he puts more faith in a potential meeting with a dictator like Ahmadinejad than in a meeting with our own soldiers in Iraq.

If incidents like these continue to surface, Obama will need a miracle to win in November. If that’s the case, I think its time he start clinging to the kind of religion practiced in a real church.

This is getting ridiculous! Shouldn’t this church know that they are under and will be under a microscope until November 5th, the day after the MSM hopes Obama wins? It is becoming clear, as Mike points out, that this is who these people are, this is what Obama’s church is like, and this is where the spiritual roots of Obama are located.

If the RNC doesn’t jump on this they’re ridiculous too. However, I think that we’ll need more than Obama criticism to survive in the Fall; we’ll need a clear and distinct message too.
