Obama Praised Reverend Wright In 1995

From a series of book interviews from back in 1995 with Connie Martinson, via the American Spectator, who got it from the pro-Obama site Old Man McCain:

Wright, who is my pastor, and he is a wonderful man… He’s a pastor of a large congregation in Chicago, and one of the interesting things that I discover in my journey to discover what my identity is and who my father is, is also discovering my own faith, which is not necessarily a traditional faith.

I don’t come out of an institutionalized religious setting. But what becomes important to me as I work with churches in the South Side of Chicago and low income neighborhoods is to realize that all of the stories and songs of the Church, the hope that is embodied in the Church, the sense of liberation that is embodied in the historically African American Church, is really something that moves me deeply.

And I think is probably the main pillar around which a lot of inner city communities are going to be built, and Reverend Wright, my pastor who I speak about in the chapter in the book, I think represents the best of what the black Church has to offer.”

    SOOOOooooo….Hate is the pillar of the inner city Afro – American Church? Racial Hate deeply moves you, huh bub? Twenty years with the same old Reverand made NO influence what so ever? Man…. you are soooo shallow. I am begining to think that the Rev. Jesse Whatshisname was right when he labeled you Uncle and wanted to cut off your nads!! You make Bill Beelzabubba look like a choirboy!!

    With out a doubt the church he attended is an will always be a black muslim church. An Barack you think just like your old pastor. You want to liberate the low income intercity ghettos of America.

    An your tax proposal proves you are putting the weight on the people that work hard for a living.. You are a sorry excuse of a man. Go cry to to your pastor Wright so he can call in both of your,s mentor louis farrakhan..

    Nov 4th can be the very best day the USA can have, Or be the day that American dies a slow an agaonizing death from a black muslim that loves louis farrakhan.

  3. Liberation theology is not Christian theology. If Rev. Wright is the “best” example of what the black church has to offer, I don’t want to see the worst.

    So very sad that Obama as a bi-racial man could really have been a unifying force for our country, but chose instead to be divisive and play the race card.

    Lets face the facts: Barak Hussein Obama is a phenomenal liar. The absolute only reason he can lie as often and as blatantly as he does is because the media refuses to expose him. Please, when everything is in the toilet, remember WHO did this. Barak Hussein Obama is a puppet. Those pulling the strings are traitors. Those allowing this horrible charade to manifest itself are collaborators. There is a certain consequence for treason and abetting treason. Dont waste your time with loud mouthed liberals.

    sheehanjihad; …..”Those pulling the strings…..”

    Bingo! This is a largely overlooked fact. Obama is a tool of a greater and sinister force. Ask yourself where he came from, and how did he rise to the very real prospect of becoming the next POTUS? Certainly he hasn’t arrived via his own merit, for he has no record of accomplishment.

    I told Mrs. MG after “the one” gave his address to the Dem. convention in ’04, “Watch this guy. Somebody has great plans for him”. I shudder to think that a large portion of the entire electorate has been so easily taken in.
