  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Why the Left Keeps Defending Obama’s Stance on Reverand Wright

Posted by rightwinger on April 12, 2008

It seems that liberal Democrats don’t seem to mind Reverend Wright’s anti-American hate speech. It really bothers me that I keep hearing excuses as to why these statements were made from AmeriKKKa to the fact that we deserved 9/11. I’ve been thinking, how can this not bother these people? Do they hate America too? Of course some on the far left do hate America. I also think most liberal Democrats are atheists or agnostics who have no belief in God. As a result, they do not understand that a minister to a Christian is like the shepherd who leads the flock. I being a Christian hold my minister in high regard. I don’t always agree with him, but if my minister were to say something like Wright did, then I would find another church. I keep hearing Obama supporters say that ‘Barack didn’t say it, so it shouldn’t matter’. I’ve also heard ‘of course Barack doesn’t believe what Reverend Wright believes’. Again they don’t understand what a minister is, and how he leads his congregation. To the liberal Democrat a minister must be nothing more than a public speaker you go and watch once a week. They think ‘so what if Barack heard this public speaker once a week, it doesn’t mean Reverend Wright affected his beliefs’. Someone who has no spiritual beliefs has no understanding of what a pastor means to a congregant.

  1. I don’t think it’s a lack of understanding; I think they just don’t care. There’s no reason to.

    D’jever notice? If you take a public stance that you want pregnant girls to be married, you will be obliged to explain almost instantly how far you will go to make that happen. If you take a public stance that you don’t think the right to keep and bear arms should be infringed, you will be asked how many needless deaths are “worth” this vision of yours. And if you say kids should be able to pull out of failing school districts, you can set your watch by someone demanding to know what is to become of the fellow classmates that are still trapped there.

    It comes down to this: Conservatives have to say what they’re willing to sacrifice for their agendas. Liberals don’t have to do this. Since they don’t have to quantify it this way, the answer ends up being “everything.” If the liberal agenda can happen by means of a lie being told, the immoral thing to do is to fail to tell the lie. If it can be achieved by women continuing to be oppressed in some third-world mudpuddle like the former Iraq, then that is what should happen.

    So it isn’t that they don’t understand the relationship between pastor and congregant; it’s that they don’t care. I mean, just look at them. Look at what they say. Clinton was a better President than Bush because Clinton was more “articulate”; but Clinton used his speaking skills to LIE, and we’re not supposed to think anything about that because it was none of our business. So someone who mumbles his way through, but doesn’t lie, is an inferior President but someone who talks like a skilled auctioneer or used-car salesman, lying his ass off, is far superior.

    Doesn’t make sense on my planet. So if you want further explanation, you’ll have to ask them.

    It really has to do with the agenda. Morals don’t enter into it. As far as they’re concerned, you can hate whoever you want, as long as you do what they want done.

    I guess that’s right. If you’re a democrat then you’re an athiest. If you’re a republican (right wing) you’re a christian. Seems like a pretty large judgement for a christian like yourself, don’t you think?

    Ultimately, and for some reason, you listened (i presume) to Rev Wrights speech and deemed it “america hating”, which must be why the Left defends him because the Left HATES AMERICA, right?

    “God **** America for threatening citizens as less than humans. God **** America as long as she tries to act like she is God and supreme.”

    If you look at history, America has done this again and again and again and I damn any country that does this as well. In the end, the only reason I could see anything wrong with what Rev Wright had to say, was that he shouldn’t have said anything about politics in church. Republicans and Democrats lie. they are the two parties in control and they don’t want to lose control, and it just so happens that Rev Wright is critical of the powers that be, as rightly so.

    If the truth upsets you, perhaps a church like Rev Wrights would not be appropriate for you.

    P.S. does gov sarah palins minister comfort you any more than b obamas?

    Mark B, your just another America hater. Guess what al Qaida was in Iraq and working with Saddam since the early 1990’s. Saddam had WMDs up until we invaded. Bush didn’t lie, the media and Obama did! If it were up to you peacenicks we would all be speaking German about now!
