Why Was Obama Comfortable With This?

Jeremia Wright – Obama’s mentor, advisor, and inspiration:

And Barack Obama said he didn’t think his church of 20 years was particularly controversial.  How about this message of “unity” for you!?!  Mr. Obama said he has enormous respect for this man.

Marxist Roots of Black Liberation Theology

Ever wonder, as I have, why Barack Obama chose the Trinity United Church – that specific church – and Jeremiah Wright, as his mentor, and why he felt comfortable there for so many years?

In a recent interview, Obama has stated that he does not regret the “spread the wealth around” remark and has, in fact, embraced it.  If you review the origins and roots of the Black Liberation Thelogy, it becomes clear why he was not at all uncomfortable at Trinty.   There are shared core beliefs.  Common sense would tell you that, but now there is proof.

Excerpts from article written by Anthony B. Bradley, a research fellow at the Acton Institute, and assistant professor of apologetics and systematic theology at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis:

One of the pillars of Obama’s home church, Trinity United Church of Christ, is “economic parity.” On the website, Trinity claims that God is not pleased with “America’s economic mal-distribution.” Among all of controversial comments by Jeremiah Wright, the idea of massive wealth redistribution is the most alarming. The code language “economic parity” and references to “mal-distribution” is nothing more than channeling the twisted economic views of Karl Marx.

Palin “Lynching” – It’s Halloween (Update)

Well, I don’t like it  – it’s chilling to say the least, but those who live in the house in West Hollywood, California, have said that it should be considered “art” and, after all, it is Halloween.  There’s a video at the link.

Obama Speaks of What He Calls “Fundamental Flaw” in the Constitution

Barack Obama has said he was not sorry he made the comment about “redistribution of wealth,” and has, in fact, embraced it, and now just listen to what he has said about the Constitution.  “The framers of the Constitution had an enormous blind spot.”  Blind spot?  I do not believe that!!  Think about what he is saying.  Wake Up, America!

More shocking words of Mr. Obama on the redistribution of wealth ending with a recap of his converstaion with Joe the Plumber:

To quote the words of Bill Whittle in the National Review on October 27, 2008:

The entire purpose of the Constitution was to limit government. That imitation of powers is what has unlocked in America the vast human potential available in any population.

Barack Obama sees that limiting of government not as a lynchpin but rather as a fatal flaw: “…One of the, I think, the tragedies of the Civil Rights movement was because the Civil Rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that.”

There is no room for wiggle or misunderstanding here. This is not edited copy. There is nothing out of context; for the entire thing is context — the context of what Barack Obama believes. You and I do not have to guess at what he believes or try to interpret what he believes. He says what he believes.

We have, in our storied history, elected Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives and moderates. We have fought, and will continue to fight, pitched battles about how best to govern this nation. But we have never, ever in our 232-year history, elected a president who so completely and openly opposed the idea of limited government, the absolute cornerstone of what makes the United States of America unique and exceptional.

If this does not frighten you — regardless of your political affiliation — then you deserve what this man will deliver with both houses of Congress, a filibuster-proof Senate, and, to quote Senator Obama again, “a righteous wind at our backs.”
