Barack Obama's church of hate

This video of Barack Obama's pastor-the man who celebrated his marriage and baptized his children, and who has been his spiritual leader for 20 years by Obama's admission, is circulating all over the internet:

Did you hear those words? I won't repeat them here...I'll just ask my Democrat friends to please nominate Obama so that Republicans can use this in an ad against Obama in the General Election. Please nominate Obama so that it will insure he will never be elected and he will lose in a massive landslide.

I wouldn't have thought it could happen last week, but I am beginning to think that all we need to defeat Barack Obama in the General Election is more sermons from his hate-filled, anti-American, and apparently anti-Semetic pastor.

Somebody -- I'm not naming names -- is both a hypocrite and a self-hating Catholic.

When Mike Huckabee visited -- and accepted money from -- the Cornerstone Church, led by anti-Catholic hatemonger John Hagee, Mr. Oatney defended the action and politely refused to condemn Hagee's rantings against Catholicism.

When that same John Hagee decided to endorse John McCain for President -- a nomination that McCain not only refused to distance himself from but actually embraced -- Mr. Oatney said nothing, thereby again refusing to condemn Hagee's long-standing anti-Catholic teaching.

But now -- when a Democrat is in the position of being involved with a church whose pastor engages in hateful speech -- the gloves come off.

If it's okay to be anti-Catholic, what's the big deal with someone being anti-Semitic? Granted, Catholics weren't killed by the millions by Nazi Germany -- but then again, if you believe Hagee, we Catholics were behind those killings!!

I'm all for rooting out hateful men who pass themselves off as religious leaders, whether they be Louis Farrahkan, this guy, John Hagee, or anyone else.

But to pick and choose selectively which hatefulness you'll attack -- especially to do so based on political ideology -- is absolutely despicable and the worst kind of the idiotic partisanship one can display.

I'd also point out how transparent and obvious it is that the hatefulness of a white man (Hagee) was condoned here, while the hatefulness of a black man (Obama's pastor) is attacked.

Obviously, neither is appropriate. But the above fact is quite interesting, to say the least.

I hate to be a bum kick, but Matt's right about this. What's good for goose is good for the gander and it looks like you've missed that fact.

LOL you have it wrong boys. It is about politics and he is not a preacher nor a pastor I would believe and follow. He is now retired so all of this is moot but.... I don't see any of that church closer to heaven while they spew their hate and bigotry. As far as Matt goes. this is the arena of Ideas not name calling sorry you have stooped to such low levels I thought your character may have been slightly higher than the liberals you have taken to defending... I was wrong.

Well, that says it all right there.

"It is about politics"

That's about as bullsh*t, transparent, and worthless as anything the pastor in the video said.

While I'm not going to go out on a limb and say that Democrats deserve my support, I'm certainly not going to be supporting Republicans like these any time soon.

In the meantime, I'll continue to weep for my country and its impending demise.

Instead of weeping get off of your ass and do something. You are a bitter bitter man who must live a pitiful pitiful life and have nothing better to do than bitch and moan about your lot in life forgetting that you are the creator.

Matt curl up in your double-wide and subscribe to roll call and be a good liberal.

Pretty bold statements coming from a coward who can't even bring themselves to reveal their own identity.

1) How do you know whether I live in a "double-wide" or not? Are you a stalker or something? And even if I did, there's got to be some sort of holier-than-thou, ethnic bigotry in that statement. What's wrong with living in a double-wide -- or are you just better than everyone else?

2) How do you know what I am or am not doing? How do you know whether or not I'm "doing something"? Again, are you a stalker? Stop. You're creeping me out. And if you're talking about a blog...hey, any idiot can do that (obviously). Regardless, I do plenty, so stick with what you know -- nothing.

3) At what time have I ever chosen to "bitch and moan" about my particular life? When have I said that my life is "pitiful"? Quite honestly, neither of those is true. I am very happy with my very full and rich life. Then again, I'm not so blind and stupid to think that, just because my life is great, everyone else's must be, too.

It's because of people (gee, I wonder who...), who couldn't think for themselves if they tried, that this country is going straight down the crap hole. It's because of people too afraid to change that we have people like Hillary and McCain at the forefront of this year's Presidential campaign.

Maybe if you and others would pull your collective heads out of your collective asses, things could finally start to move in a POSITIVE direction.

An easy to remember shortcut to the church website is and . perhaps in the near future they will be developed with appropriate content.
