Not Your Average Church Bulletin

If you thought Obama’s Pastor, Reverend Wright seemed a bit unorthodox…you should check out Trinity United Church Of Christ’s church bulletin.

How often does the average church goer get to see sympathetic treatment of a terrorist manifesto printed in their Sunday bulletin? I have to be honest…I’ve never seen anything like that in my church’s bulletin. What a bunch of “crackers” we must be.

Aaron Klein at WND who broke the Black Panther story, has done it again:

Sen. Barack Obama’s Chicago church reprinted a manifesto by Hamas that defended terrorism as legitimate resistance, refused to recognize the right of Israel to exist and compared the terror group’s official charter – which calls for the murder of Jews – to America’s Declaration of Independence.

The Hamas piece was published on the “Pastor’s Page” of the Trinity United Church of Christ newsletter reserved for Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., whose anti-American, anti-Israel remarks landed Obama in hot water, prompting the presidential candidate to deliver a major race speech earlier this week.

Hamas, responsible for scores of shootings, suicide bombings and rocket launchings against civilian population centers, is listed as a terrorist group by the U.S. State Department.

The revelation follows a recent WND article quoting Israeli security officials who expressed “concern” about Robert Malley, an adviser to Obama who has advocated negotiations with Hamas and providing international assistance to the terrorist group.

In his July 22, 2007, church bulletin, Wright reprinted an article by Mousa Abu Marzook, identified in the newsletter as a “deputy of the political bureau of Hamas.” A photo image of the newsletter was captured and posted today by the business blog BizzyBlog. The Hamas piece was first published by the Los Angeles Times, garnering the newspaper much criticism.

Read the whole thing.

Not to beat a dead horse…but is Obama through yet?


See Atlas Shrugs whacking away at Obama and his pals at La Raza. Are there any pinko groups this man hasn’t sidled up to?

A Song For Reverend Wright

Sung in church tonight:

Jesu Jesu

Jesu, Jesu,
Fill us with Your love, show us how to serve
The neighbors we have from You.

Kneels at the feet of his friends,
Silently washes their feet,
Master who acts as a slave to them.


Neighbors are rich and poor,
Neighbors are black and white,
Neighbors are near and far away.


These are the ones we should serve,
These are the ones we should love;
All these are neighbors to us and You.


Loving puts us on our knees,
Serving as though we are slaves,
This is the way we should live with You.


Kneel at the feet of our friends,
Silently washing their feet,
This is the way we should live with You.


I couldn’t help thinking of him and his flock as we were singing this simple, yet profound little hymn.


Obama’s “Racist” Granny

Did Obama misrepresent this part of his “historic” race speech?:

"a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."

Obama has written about his grandma’s heart wrenching “racism” in his book, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.

Blogger Steve Sailer reviewed the book in ’07, and remembers this little vignette:

Obama’s white grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who was raising him and earning most of the money in the family while his own mother was off in Indonesia working on her 1067 page dissertation on peasant blacksmithing, rode the bus each morning to her job as a bank executive. One day, the 16-18 year old Obama wakes up to an argument between his grandmother and grandfather. She didn’t want to ride the bus because she had been hassled by a bum at the bus stop. She tells him:

“Her lips pursed with irritation. ‘He was very aggressive, Barry. Very aggressive. I gave him a dollar and he kept asking. If the bus hadn’t come, I think he might have hit me over the head.”

So why did Obama’s lefty grandfather not want to drive his own wife to work? Because to help his wife avoid the hostile, dangerous panhandler would be morally wrong, because the potential mugger was … Well, I’ll let Sen. Obama tell the story:

“He turned around and I saw that he was shaking. ‘It is a big deal. It’s a big deal to me. She’s been bothered by men before. You know why she’s so scared this time. I’ll tell you why. Before you came in, she told me the fella was black.‘ He whispered the word. ‘That’s the real reason why she’s bothered. And I just don’t think that right.’

“The words were like a fist in my stomach, and I wobbled to regain my composure. In my steadiest voice, I told him that such an attitude bothered me, too….

Ugh, let’s just stop it right there. What we have here is not a racist grandmother, but two sexist assholes of a husband and grandson. Never-mind the hyper sensitive drama queen tendencies of young Barry – (fist in his stomach?), and the dripping with leftist white guilt tendencies of gramps…the fact that neither of them could take this capable woman, (who was the main bread winner of the family) seriously, when she tells them that she felt threatened by an aggressive hobo says more about their moral failings, than hers.

If that story is what he was referring to……wow. Just wow.

Aggressive hobos scare me, too…I don’t care what color they are.

Incidentally, Obama’s grandma is still alive and is living in Honolulu.
