Obama may be able to pull off the "I don't agree with my Pastor" argument, but how is he going to deny the doctrine of the church he's been attending for twenty years?
STACLU: Even more radical! His church published the HAMAS terrorist manifesto! Talk about a far-left/socialist church!
Oh brother! I’m sure something absurd and controversial can be dug up from the church that Obama can’t denounce on a daily basis. Now, since the passport breach happened to all three candidates, Obama really can’t use it for a distraction without looking ridiculous.
Jesus is black. Merging Marxism with Christian Gospel may show the way to a better tomorrow. The white church in America is the Antichrist because it supported slavery and segregation.
So TUCC doesn't believe in forgiveness, forgoing it for blaming today's white people for crimes committed over a hundred years ago? Not to mention the fact that only the very rich Southern plantation owners had slaves. Much of the Muslim world still has slavery by the way.
Those are some of the more provocative doctrines that animate the theology at the core of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Barack Obama’s church.
Obama’s speech Tuesday on race in America was hailed as a masterful handling of the controversy over divisive sermons by the longtime pastor of Trinity United, the recently retired Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.
But in repudiating and putting in context Wright’s inflammatory lines about whites and U.S. foreign policy, the Democratic presidential front-runner didn’t address other potentially controversial facts about his church and its ties.
Wright has said that a basis for Trinity’s philosophies is the work of James Cone, who founded the modern black liberation theology movement out of the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. Particularly influential was Cone’s seminal 1969 book, “Black Theology & Black Power.”
Cone wrote that the United States was a white racist nation and the white church was the Antichrist for having supported slavery and segregation.
Today, Cone, a professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York, stands by that view, but also makes clear that he doesn’t believe that whites individually are the Antichrist.
In an interview, Cone said that when he was asked which church most embodied his message, “I would point to that church (Trinity) first.” Cone also said he thought that Wright’s successor, the Rev. Otis Moss III, would continue the tradition…
…Wright, who hasn’t been giving interviews since the controversy broke, told conservative TV talk-show host Sean Hannity last year that Trinity’s black value system also had parallels to the liberation theology of laypeople in Nicaragua three decades ago. There, liberation theology became associated with Marxist revolution.
That would be "real change" all right.
