Barack Obama, a typical politician. Obama’s real message is not one of hope and change, but rather one of … do as I say, not as I do.
Barack Obama sat through 20 years of sermons at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and listened to Reverend Jeremiah Wright and didn’t think that is was “screed”? Talk about a convenient memory.
Isn’t this priceless. Long before the world knew about Reverend Jeremiah Wright and the 20 years of Barack Obama attending the racially and politically charged sermons, Obama was lashed out at activist pastors who offer more “screed than sermon.” Of course this was in 2006. Flash forward to 2008.
What exactly would he call what Reverend Wright was doing? But that’s different, because it has to do with Barack Obama and he has a separate set of rules. However, once the world found out about Reverend Wright and his sermons, Obama found it politically expedient to leave the church and cast Wright under the bus.
Barack Obama in 2006 sermon (tape): “No matter how religious they may or may not be, people are tired of seeing faith used as a tool of attack. They don’t want faith used to belittle or to divide. They’re tired of hearing folks deliver more screed than sermon. Because in the end, that’s not how they think about faith in their own lives.”
“I think he’s deliberately distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to fit his own world view, his own confused theology,” Dobson said, adding that Obama is “dragging biblical understanding through the gutter.”
Obama’s reply is that Dobson is making the stuff up. Really? From the video above, it appears that it is Barack Obama who has trouble keeping his stories correct and have a revisionist history.
