Obama's New Minister: "Stop Trying To Crucify Us!"
OK, this is really beginning to piss me off...
Church accuses media of 'crucifixion'
CHICAGO – The church attended by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) fought back Sunday against mounting criticism of its pastor, accusing the media of character assassination and “crucifixion.”
Otis Moss III, the current pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ, used his pulpit to defend his congregation and its past minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., from a wave of controversy stemming from inflammatory statements made by Wright.
"We have listened and watched as the wonderful work of our church has been vilified this week," he told about 3,000 congregants on Palm Sunday morning. "This week should be special for us because I guess we know a little something about crucifixion."
"Our very sanity is connected to the church. If it hadn't been for the church we would have lost our minds in the insanity of racism," he said, in a sermon titled, "Why the Black Church Won't Shut Up."
Although Moss never mentioned Obama explicitly, he alluded to his most famous parishioner in a prayer asking God to "do something amazing in this country" and "break down walls that are centuries old."
If you replace the word Black with the word White in Wright's and Moss' sermons and they were delivered at Bob Jones U, this would also piss me off.
Jesus isn't running for office.
And the church building is not a place for electioneering.
No wonder the IRS is investigating Obama's church.
Gee, I wonder if Obama (who claims he's never heard a word of these sermons) is even aware of the investigation. He should be. After all, he was the speaker who caused the investigation.
Obama: "Don't know much about my church or my friend, Rezko, either. Trust me, or no pony for you."
Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
