Wally Wonders Why No editor, no publisher, you get what you get

Pants afire

I’ve kept silent about the topic of religion and Senator Obama, not because I think it is a non-topic, but rather it is such a huge multifaceted topic that I couldn’t figure a good place to start.

  • boydog129 90 degreesIs Rev. Wright’s hate speak a sound Christian principle?
  • If not, is it okay for a pastor to sprinkle a little hatred from the pulpit now and then, as long as it is not his primary message?
  • Is Rev. Wright’s message really racism against whites or Jews? Was that Christ’s message?
  • Is it correct to preach “blackism” over Christianity or even Islam, in the case of Minister Louis Farrakan and the Nation of Islam?
  • Which is more important in a Christian Church; church culture or Christ’s message?
  • If you found yourself in church that you feel teaches and incorrect message, should you leave the church, stay and fight for change, stay and raise your family there?
  • Can you attend a church for 20 years and not know the message being delivered?
  • How could Senator Obama attend a Christian Church and not understand Christ’s message?
  • What are the odds that over the last 20 years, Senator Obama missed each and every service where Rev. Wright delivered hateful messages?
  • I doze off from time to time in church; could my pastor be a hate monger and I’ve just missed it? Does Senator Obama doze a bit from time to time also?
  • Is Senator Obama telling the truth in this situation?
  • Is Senator Obama raising his family in this church because it is; locally popular? consistent with his values? politically advantages? or because he believes in the message.

I’m sure there are many other facets, but these was enough to overwhelm my pea brain. I guess really I could figure a place to start, but couldn’t follow a clear path through all the muck. As a mere human I can’t really comment on what is going on in Senator Obama’s heart, nor Rev. Wright nor Minister Louis Farrakan’s, but I can highlight a couple of simplified, but obvious conclusions.

  • Sen. Obama knew of Rev. Wright’s hateful teachings, disagreed with them and yet did nothing about it except to lie to America and for God only know what reason, weekly subjected his family to this type of hate.
  • Sen. Obama knew of Rev. Wright’s hateful teachings, agreed with them, lied to America about this agreement, and thinks American’s are stupid enough to believe that he attended this church for 20 years without ever hearing a one of them.

Neither of these is desirable and I don’t see any way that the facts about Sen. Obama’s relationship with Rev. Wright qualify him as an honest person. Rather, either one of these conclusions would seem to make Sen. Obama a liar and disqualify him as material for President of the United States, yet he is still popular.

Have we become so callus in choosing politicians, that we accept liars with out question? Is that why no one asks Sen. Obama’s to explain his message of hope and change; because it may just be a lie anyway so why bother asking?

The Democratic Party and Senator Obama’s push for Socialism in the US is why they lose my vote and the non-truths in this situation is why Sen. Obama also loses my respect.



  1. How could he not hear his preacher with those H.Ross Perot ears that Obama has…
    Billobama isn’t gonna pull a fast one past my litle p-brane. I think I’ll just back the cranky old guy instead…even if I think that he is too liberal at least he means what he says. But then I appreciate cranky old geezers…

  2. These arguments are not going to change the mind of any of the Obamamanics. Once you contribute to a candidate you have a vested interest to see that candidate succeed. I think this is especially true if you are a first time donator, new to politics, and believe in his message (socialism). I am definitely not supporting Obama, but I can relate to how they are feeling as a Paul supporter, first time contributor, etc.

  3. Bellinghammer, As I told one young lady today, don’t give up. Reagan got clobberred his first few times running for president and so did Jack Metcalf running for the US House. It’s a Marathon in politics, not a sprint.
    And if we agree 80% of the time that’s good enough for me.
    Besides, it is entertaining to watch the cannibalism between of Hillobama.

  5. These arguments may not change the mind of Obamaniacs, but it might help with the big drop in popularity that I feel Obama is about to take. I’m starting to see little hints of this all around and I think most people have agreed that sometime before November, Obama would have start answering questions on issues other than hope and change. My feeling is that he peaked to early to win in November, maybe even too early to beat Hillary. I wouldn’t be surprised to find a lot of first time donors, especially the younger ones, just fade away an perhaps not even vote. I hope that all the Ron Paul donors, as well as the Huckabee, Romney, Guiliani, Thompson donors, can leave their feelings behind and make a vote for the most (albeit not very) conservative candidate who stands a chance of actually winning in November.
