March:

Like other predominantly black churches across the country, Trinity embodies the black community in its entirety... I can no more disown [Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother
April:

His comments were not only divisive and destructive, but they end up giving comfort to those that prey on hate.
May:

Senator Barack Obama is ending his membership at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago
what's next in store for June?

He said he could not disown Wright... but he did.
He defended his Church ....... now he dumps it.
Next up...divorce Michelle! :laugh:

First he threw his pastor of 20 years under the bus, then his white grandmother and now the church. It seems that everything has a price and there is literally nothing he won?t do for power. Hmm...Isn't that what they said about Hillary?

AN INADEQUATE BLACK MALE. Who would not have been running if it wasn't a White woman who was running for President.

And I'm not gonna shut my mouth anymore!

I can be called White, but you can't be called Black and that's not my America.

IT'S EQUALITY FOR ALL

Obama distancing himself from the entire church is a good move for him and for the church. The church can perform as it wishes without be percieved as a surrogate for Obama, and Obama is free to define himself, as it should be.

Personally, I rue the day that religion became such a big factor in American politics. Nothing good-at all-has come of the intense religious focus of the last two decades in my opinion-but a whole lot of bad and unamerican behavior has resulted from this plague upon our house.
Agree w/ most. Its best for the church. I wonder just how many churches would withstand constant and international media scrutiny of every sermon. Too bad Obama wasn't a pentecostal or 7th Day Adventist so we could have seen some snake charming or speaking in tongues wacky shit. They didn't even sacrifice any virgins...


I think this year is proving just how politics and religion don't mix. I don't think most churches would welcome Big Brother Media in to analyze ever sermon. The churches will suffer the most , but so will politics.

Are you on an acid trip? That's the most rambling, paranoid, and nonsensical post I've seen in a while.

If Hillary was so great, why couldn't she beat an "inadequate" rival w/ little national experience? She was Goliath and she got whipped by David. If Obama is so weak, how could she possibly beat McCain eh? Esp w/ the huge negatives she started off with, and has only increased. She's only managed to destroy everything Bill ever accomplished in 8yrs.

She's an electoral lightweight. She's only had to run one real election, and even that she wimped out and went to NY, and heavy Democratic state w/ a weak opponent in Lazio. She hasn't ever had to fight for anything, and this campaign has showed it. She just expects to have things handed to her. This time it wasn't and she choked, of historical proportions.

It's about time we all stood up for it. I'm no second class citizen and GOD DAMN THE DEMOCRATS.

We couldn't even find out where this convention was being held. I came here for the vote of every American and our Democratic Party threw us down the tubes. I was a second class citizen before and now I'm NOTHING

Well I got news for all of you: McCain will be the next President of the United States

Well, that about proves what I've been saying all along. This guy is a racist piece of crap and truly believes everything he's been saying. Only NOW, after 20 years does he realize that his racist views are not welcome in America. Like only NOW after he realizes "wait? You mean america doesn't believe whitey is the root of all ills?" he pulls this.

So Senator Obama - How about "those typical white people?"

She was ejected from the RBC meeting today. In the hallway outside, they taped her going off about Sen. Obama.

Here's the video.

I guess the rumors were true. :)
He is throwing the whole Church under the bus. If he felt it was the right thing to do - it should have been done before the campaign and on the spot. Or maybe as the first story broke.
...or maybe as a child he should have had the foresight to not join the church to begin with. He should have fought the urge to go to Christ being lead by a representative of a church that was filled with such hatred....

Afraid? Nah.. I don't think so... I think this is more an act of a man who wishes to unite a diverse group of Americans - ALL Americans.. and unfortunately he feels he has to leave his church as a candidate for the President of this great country so that the ignorant ones who would use the church against him have no leverage there ........ yet, his leaving is still not enough for some... lol .. pathetic!

Who? The marshmallow shaped-dykes? ;)

I think the level of the hillary fanaticism is overplayed by their loudness on the entarnets. After the contrast to Scalia-loving McCain (who doesn't understand the economy) is made in the fall, most sensible voters, and also Dems, will not vote for him.

I don't want my President speaking to terroist. I want him to kill terrorist or anybody who threatens my country and my way of life. It's simple, there's no debating it.... they're the bad guys, we're the good guys and bad guys need to lose. Anything else is just another intellectual exercise while accoomplishing nothing but the merit of an argumen or point of view...pointless.
