From Barack Obama’s initial stab at damage control over his anti-American racist pastor, Jeremiah Wright:
Most importantly, Rev. Wright preached the gospel of Jesus, a gospel on which I base my life. In other words, he has never been my political advisor; he’s been my pastor. And the sermons I heard him preach always related to our obligation to love God and one another, to work on behalf of the poor, and to seek justice at every turn.
Pray tell, what is the Gospel that forms the basis of Obama’s life and beliefs? Not being one to stick to what’s actually in the Bible, Pastor Wright apparently teaches another gospel:
Concerning his pastor, Obama said last week that Wright “has said some things that are considered controversial because he’s considered that part of his social gospel.”
When Obama says “social gospel” he means Black Liberation Theology (as Pastor Wright confirmed on March 1st, 2007). Does Obama share his pastor’s belief in the Marxist principles of Kawaida? A candidate’s worldview is fair game for detailed examination; Americans deserve to have enough information to make an educated decision in the voting booth. It would be nice to know if this potential President is a devotee of a kooky anti-American pseudo-religion, or whether he’ll base his decisions on something resembling actual Christianity. Heck, I’d prefer a pro-American atheist as President to Jeremiah Wright’s brand of wild eyed nutcase.
So far, there hasn’t been much in the way of a coherent explanation from the Obamassiah.
