MOVE 2008: Obama may have just mailed God a check

Jeremiah Wright.

Those two words create many a visceral emotion in folk these days. This was the pastor of Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Obama for 20 YEARS! That’s important to note.

20 long years. For 1,040 Sundays (give or take for governmental Christmas parties), this aspiring Chicago politician warmed a pew and listen to this avowed black liberationist preach God’s word and intermingle venom of hate (allegedly). You would think Barack, Michelle and the little Obamas heard an exhortation about the inclusion of faith that is Christianity, the love of God and oh yeah, heaven and hell.

Not so much.

At least, according to this post by Cal Thomas, quoting Chicago Sun-Times religion editor Cathleen Falsani for her book, “The God Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People,” which has a healthy chapter about the now wanna-be president and so-called Christian.

Why “so-called”? Peep this:

“I’m rooted in the Christian tradition,” said Obama. He then adds something most Christians will see as universalism: “I believe there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

FALSE. I know two famed people in Chicago, and odd how they both believe this ‘We are the world’ shrill. Connected? Yes, through a mutual creator in God. No, because not every person believes God is real and Jesus is Lord. Kinda’ important landmark rationale there, Barack. His name is Jesus. And trust me, what Muslims, Mormons and Christians think of that guy is WORLDS APART.

Here’s Obama again: “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. When I tuck in my daughters at night and I feel like I’ve been a good father to them, and I see that I am transferring values that I got from my mother and that they’re kind people and that they’re honest people, and they’re curious people, that’s a little piece of heaven.”

AGAIN, NO. You know, it’s a good thing you aren’t presuming or assuming what happens after you die. Even after those two decades you called yourself a member of Wright’s church. Because, you know, when you assume, you make… um… yourself on the short list of the lukewarm. In case you missed that service too, check the link. No bueno for you.

Word to the wise, Barack. We [Christians] like you. Charismatic, lively, approachable, tangible… just like most of our pastors.

Yeah, we know, all that will change if you ever make it in the White House, no worries. It’s an act. But at least you are trying to reach us. McCain is still trying to catch his breath from Billy Graham’s mountaintop before he talks to the rest of us. But if you are going to continue with your “I’m a Christian… really” tour, you may wanna brush up on those Sunday school lessons before we learn what is under that nice tailored suit.
