    Look Who's Supporting Obama!

    [QUOTE][B]LOOK WHO’S SUPPORTING OBAMA [/B]

    Yesterday, Senator Barack Obama became the first presidential contender to launch a religious outreach website, faith.barackobama.com. Commenting on it today is Catholic League president Bill Donohue:

    “On Sen. Obama’s new website, he lists the testimonials of three controversial clergymen: Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., senior pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago; Rev. J. Alfred Smith Sr., senior pastor of Allen Temple Baptist Church in Oakland, California; and Rev. Michael Pfleger, a Roman Catholic Chicago priest.

    “Rev. Wright was scheduled to give the invocation at the forum of Obama’s presidential announcement on February 10, but the night before the event Obama rescinded the bid: the Illinois senator knew that his spiritual advisor was so divisive that he would cloud the ceremonies. The black liberation theologian has a record of giving racially inflammatory sermons and has even said that Zionism has an element of ‘white racism.’ He also blamed the attacks of 9/11 on American foreign policy.

    “Rev. Smith was honored by the notoriously violent Black Panther Party of Oakland in 1975, and in 1990 was given a community award by the Nation of Islam, an anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic and anti-gay group.

    “Rev. Pfleger has allowed Nation of Islam chief Louis Farrakhan to preach in his church; he has been arrested for defacing billboards; he has paid prostitutes to worship at his church; and only last week he staged an anti-gun rally in front of a gun store where he exhorted the crowd to hunt down the owner ‘like a rat’ and ‘snuff’ him.

    “While Obama is not responsible for the record of these three clergymen, he is responsible for giving them the opportunity to prominently display their testimonials on his religious outreach website. If these are the kinds of clergymen he admires, perhaps it’s best he shut down his new website and start all over again. It will take more than ‘God talk’ to get Obama out of this jam.”

    The Catholic League is the nation's largest Catholic civil rights organization. It defends individual Catholics and the institutional Church from defamation and discrimination.[/QUOTE]


    just the kind of people expected to back hussien....

    You are slipping. I am waiting for you rant about Edwards travelling with Danny Glover.

    Catholics shouldn't be too quick to point out prositutes and such. I wish the Catholic church had a problem with whores, leave them kids alone.

    Being called "divisive" by Bill Donohue is like being called blue by a smurf.

    See CR< this is calling "Changing the subject". Either these Reverends are OK, and Obama can/should support them. Or they are NOT OK, based on their actions, and Obama should be criticised for supporting them.

    Catholic Priests dont enter the equation. Now, if a Specific Pedophile Priest is supported by one of the Republicans, and put on that Republicans website like this, THEN you would have a legitimate reason to bring it up.

    Otherwise, all you're doing is avoiding the issue, and changing the subject.

    i guess you aren't counting the two straight years in 2002 and 2003 i said war in Iraq would be an utter disaster. I seem to remember making that point

    fact is i make alot of points CBNY - you should try reading them sometimes

    Although I know it's not gonna pass your internal censor unless it's got a "newsmax" byline

    In fairness, he's called into question my own personal decision to complete college instead of enlisting in the army to go to Iraq more times than I care to count.

    And I disagree with such a position, as I do with most of his positions. Doesn't neccessarily make him a dick Paulie. No worries, I am not PResident of the defend CR Club.
