I also think that the Rev Wright, who I have heard speak at an AIDS function, found a national audience when Obama became a candidate.
No, I would not attend a temple where intolerance is allowed.
The Rev Wright is not Farrakan, his message has for the most part been very inclusive and progressive when other religions and races have been discussed. Shalom
Oh, come on, guy...you are not being logical at all. Obama and family attending that church for 25 years is ABSOLUTELY the same as me and my family attending KKK meetings for 25 years. Would you say if I had done that I was not a racist? Of course you wouldn't. Hatred and preaching death to whites is no different than hatred and preaching death to blacks...both are racist. This double standard that liberals use is really annoying. If something is wrong it is wrong.
For liberals to try and defend Obama's proven racism is not only futile folly, but destroys any credibility they might have. Not only is his background racist, but his policies since taking office as President have been racist, albeit more subtle than in his church. Why do you think he is known as the food stamp President? Why do you think he wants to take from the rich and give to the poor? Do you honestly think if blacks as a socioeconomic group had the money and whites were the poorest socioeconomic group that he would do the same? Right...
The only defense librerals have is to point to Romney's religion and intimate he is as bad as Obama. If anyone is not familiar with the LDS historical philosophy concerning blacks, do a little googling - it's not hard to find. However, at least the LDS church changed it's position in 1978, but that is rather late in the game. I'm not saying Romney or any Mormon is a racist - I'm just saying that is the only option the Democrats have to at least partially offset Obama's racism.
I just love the way Democrats shut their eyes to the indescretions of their own. It's OK that Obama is a racist because he is black and a Democrat, but the Dems would raise heck if he were a white Republican racist. It was OK that Clinton was playing with cigars in the White House on the taxpayer's dime because he was a Democrat, but they would have screamed bloody murder if he had been a Republican. Not that Republicans don't do similar things, but not nearly as in-your-face blatant.
Sorry, but I think Obama's racism should be a considered a factor in the election, and I think it is disgusting that we have to be so dang politically correct and only whisper about it in private. Again, if the shoe were on the other foot, the Dems would make it the major issue in the election...
ETA - I had missed your comment about why Romney might not be using the religion card, and I agree, although for the reason I mentioned above rather than the Mormon religion being a "cult", which I think is a silly way to look at the LDS church - it is well established and widely accepted...
