Obama Mentor #3 ~ James Meeks

James Meeks is Pastor of Salem Baptist Church in Chicago.

And just in CASE anyone has been wondering about James Meeks, the third man named by Senator Obama as a spiritual adviser, just listen to the above video clip.

“Another person Obama says he seeks out for spiritual counsel is state Sen. James Meeks, who is also the pastor of Chicago’s Salem Baptist Church. The day after Obama won the primary in March, he stopped by Salem for Wednesday-night Bible study.”   Again, from the 2004 interview with Senator Obama in the Chicago Sun-Times.  http://www.suntimes.com/news/falsani/726619,obamafalsani040504.article

Obama’s Spiritual Guide, Father Pfleger, Speaks Out

We have heard from Jeremiah Wright, but listen to THIS from Father Michael Pfleger, one of Obama’s three spiritual mentors.  In a 2004 interview, Out of his OWN MOUTH, Barack Obama named Jeremiah Wright, Michael Pfleger, and James Meeks as his spiritual advisers.  From that 2004 interview with the Chicago Sun-Times:   “Friends and advisers, such as the Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church in the Auburn- Gresham community on the South Side, who has known Obama for the better part of 20 years, help him keep that compass set, he says.”  http://www.suntimes.com/news/falsani/726619,obamafalsani040504.article

You can’t miss the cheering from the congregation.

Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan and Father Michael Pfleger embrace recently before Farrakhan speaks at Pfleger’s church in Chicago.
