“Not that there is anything wrong with that.”
I was on my gig on Saturday night playing the blues in a bar. The regular bunch of guys and dolls are in the audience and on the break somehow the talk turned to politics.
Low and behold I get from to reasonably normal and intelligent people to Ditto head dummies. From the Coultergeist calling Barack H. Obama “B Hussein Obama” to coworkers emailing Obama the Muslim pictures and stories linking him with al-Queda.
This is going to be one of the nastiest political campaigns in history I believe. I keep getting chain e-mails one claiming that Obama is a racist by virtue of belonging to Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, the email goes on to say that this church only accept black parishioners.
False e-mail I received around the first of the year./ Subject: Obama's church.
Obama mentioned his church during his appearance with Oprah. It's the Trinity Church of Christ. I found this interesting./
Please read and go to this church's web site and read what is written there. It is very alarming.
Barack Obama is a member of this church and is running for President of the U.S. If you look at the first page of their web site, you will learn that this congregation has a non-negotiable commitment to Africa. No where is AMERICA even mentioned. Notice too, what color you will need to be if you should want to join Obama's church..._ B-L-A-C-K!!!_ doesn’t look like his choice of religion has improved much over his (former?) Muslim upbringing. Are you aware that Obama's middle name is Mohammed? Strip away his nice looks, the big smile and smooth talk and what do you get? Certainly a racist, as plainly defined by the stated position of his church! And possibly a covert worshiper of the Muslim faith, even today. This guy desires to rule over America while his loyalty is totally vested in a Black Africa!
I cannot believe this has not been all over the TV and newspapers. This is why it is so important to pass this message along to all of our family & friends. To think that Obama has even the slightest chance in the run for the presidency, is really scary.
WTF!!!! First of all Obama’s middle name is not Mohammed, it is Hussein. Now the facts about Obama’s Church. Trinity describes itself as “a congregation which is unashamedly black and unapologetically Christian and does not apologize for its African roots.”
The church specifies a commitment to Africa and to “Historical education of African people in Diaspora.” The congregation is overwhelmingly black, amazing that a church in a white or black neighborhood reflects the race of the neighborhood.
It has been established that Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ welcomes all races as written by a professor of theology at the University of Chicago Divinity School, Martin E. Marty. He recommends watching Trinity’s Sunday services, and challenges anyone to find anything cultic or sectarian about them. He also on occasion attends with his wife and said like all other non-blacks, are enthusiastically welcomed.
Even the right leaning www.FactCheck.org stated that “Wherever we looked we found ample evidence that Obama’s church is pro-black, but we found none to support a claim that it is anti-white. Calling it racist is in our judgment a falsehood.”/ This is another e-mail I was forwarded by a friend trying to convince me not to support Obama.
