The church where Sen. Barack Obama has worshipped for two decades publicly declares that its ministry is founded on a 1960s book that espouses “the destruction of the white enemy.”

During his appearance last week on ABC’s “The View,” Sen. Barack Obama tells hosts (from left) Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck that if they visited his “wonderful, welcoming church” on any given Sunday, the themes of mercy, sin, family and forgiveness would make them “feel right at home.” (ABC-TV via Associated Press)

Trinity United Church of Christ’s Web site says its teachings are based on the black liberation theology of James H. Cone and his 1969 book “Black Theology and Black Power.”
.
“What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love,” Mr. Cone wrote in the book.
.
Mr. Cone, a professor at the Union Theological Seminary in New York, added that “black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy.”

Mr. Obama’s campaign, which for weeks has weathered criticism about inflammatory racial language by the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. at Trinity, said the candidate “vehemently disagrees” with those tenets.

Racism concerns no stranger to pulpit

The tone and ferocity of the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.’s comments about American racism which came to national attention last week may not be typical in many mainstream black churches. The content — concerns that racism persists — still surfaces at many pulpits, however.

“Inflammatory rhetoric is certainly a minor approach to congregations within black Christian circles. That rhetoric needs to be criticized. But the larger agenda Reverend Wright is pointing to, the deep frustration over racism, is a common theme preached at black churches across the country,” said Anthony B. Pinn, a professor of religious studies at Rice University.
.
“The topic is viable. The rhetoric is not,” Mr. Pinn added.
“No one can rationally attribute to an estimated 56,000 black American churches the comments of a black pastor in a black church which is a member of a white liberal denomination — the United Church of Christ,” said the Rev. Eugene F. Rivers III of the Azusa Christian Community in Dorchester, Mass.
“Everyone gets the point that those quotes were indefensible and over the top. Everybody gets that,” he said.
Supporters say that the Rev. Jeremiah Wright is misunderstood.

Mr. Wright, who recently retired from the 8,000-member Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, has been family pastor and spiritual guide to Sen. Barack Obama for years. .
.
Mr. Wright’s sermons have included stark references to racism. In a highly publicized speech Tuesday, Mr. Obama affirmed his friendship with his pastor but repudiated his extreme opinions.

Senator Obama: “Give Me A Break”

March 17, 2008

After 20 years attending the same church with the same pastor and donating $22,000.00 to the church in one year, Senator Obama apparently wants Americans to believe that he didn’t hear any of his pastor’s anti-White and Anti-American rantings — and nobody ever made him aware of these ugly “sermons.”

I attend a church called “Holy Martyrs of Vietnam.”  I can assure you, if the pastor told the congregation that the U.S. government was helping the HIV/AIDS epidemic along as a form of genocide against “persons of color” I would hear about it.

I would know.

And I don’t even speak Vietnamese very much: practically the only language spoken in this church.

Yet Senator Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. told his congregation that the Government of the United States was waging a war of genocide against people of color using HIV/AIDS.

And the Senator was clueless.

Even after the Senator was informed, he refused to say he would no longer attend this “church,” which is really a house of hate speech.

The Senator is either stupid or lying to the American people or naive or a gross combination of all three.

Or he thinks I am stupid or naive.

I know I’ll be called a racist for this.  That’s the way the Obama machine wages counter-attacks.

Or I’ll be told I don’t understand “Black Culture,” which is what some people said when I wrote about Michael Vick’s stupid and illegal dog fighting escapades.

This isn’t good “Black Culture” any more than suicide bombers represent Islam and the teachings of the Koran.

This is a twisting together of “religion” and hate.  And I deplore it.

And I tell you in all honesty: any person of any color who tells me the U.S. government is intentionally killing off its citizens by any means deserves condemnation — unless certain proof can be put on the table.

Some of Rev. Wright’s sermons have been called “revolutionary,” inflammatory” and “unAmerican.”  And no wonder.

Rev. Wright, former pastor (although the church’s web site says he is still pastor) at Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, married the Senator and his wife, baptized his children and preached to him on Sundays for about 20 years.  Senator Obama told Major Garrett of the Fox News Network that he frequently made donations to the church and hired Rev. Wright to assist as a campaign advisor. 

Senator Obama also prayed with Rev. Wright before the Senator announced his run for the presidency.

In a sermon on the Sunday after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, Wright suggested the United States brought on the attacks.

“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye,” Wright said. “We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.”

In a 2003 sermon, he said Blacks should condemn the United States.

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”

He also gave a sermon in December comparing Obama to Jesus, promoting his candidacy and criticizing his rival, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“Barack knows what it means to be a black man to be living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people,” Wright told a cheering congregation. “Hillary can never know that. Hillary ain’t never been called a nigger.”

Well, I am sorry Senator Obama, but if these are samples of the “sermons” and “prayer” eminating from your “church,” you have lost my vote.
.
I agree with Juan Williams of National Public Radio, Senator.  A United States Senator should not participate with a group of people who cheers remarks like those of Rev. Wright.  He should stand up and set he record straight.

And a man seeking the vote and confidence of all Americans who stays in a church that cheers comments like Rev. Wright’s is a loser.

I don’t agree with Bill Clinton much.

The former President said during the New Hampshire primary about Senator Obama, “Give me a break. This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

Mister President, you seem to have spoken too soon.  But I agree with you now — on this one.
