Obama's church and Hamas

According to an article published today in WorldNetDaily:
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...
That was July 22, 2007. Yet Obama still defends the church. Read the entire article in
WorldNetDaily.

Even Huckabee defends Wright

l'oiseau,

I guess there will always be someone who tries to defend the indefensible :-)

We just can't say that one kind of racism is evil but another kind of racism is understandable and therefore, excusable.

If we're going to justify Rev. Wright's racism, we might just as well try to justify slavery as well--after all, slavery was a centuries old custom and every country did it, and it was necessary for the economy, and the slaves were often rounded up by black Africans, and North Africans were enslaving whites--the excuses for ripping innocent people from their families and treating them worse than animals make me want to vomit!

Those who try to excuse one group's racism,--whether that group is black or white or Asian or Hispanic--are racists! It's as simple as that. Huckabee and Wright are defending and promoting racism!

By the way, Rev. Wright went to one of the better schools in Philadelphia (not segregated) and lived in a nice neighborhood. We're not talking about someone who lived in the slums of Selma Alabama in fear of the KKK!

By contrast, the High School I went to was a joke and I once lived in housing that didn't even have running water or indoor toilets! Maybe I should be angry too :-)

So, was God "racist" when he sent the Israelites time after time to snuff out entire races of people and overtake their land, killing even their women, children, and animals?

Seems like that kind of racism was excusable in the OT because the people were not God's people and were sinful.

I understand the backlash against AA, I really do, but there comes a point where you backlash against it so much that you become completely numb and deaf to any possible unfairness to blacks at all. And that is not right.

Reverend Wright was a black man who grew up and lived in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. If you believe he didn't suffer from racism, then I am speechless.

Also, were you in those living conditions BECAUSE you were white?
There is a difference.

I don't agree with AA when it goes over the top, but we can't just go around acting like all blacks and all whites are treated equal all the time. They're not.

Either way, the point is that Obama is not his pastor, and does not agree with his racist statements, and wrote and spoke an entire speech on the subject, and America has accepted that and moved on (with the exception of Rush Limbaugh and Hillary Clinton...what a pair those two make...Oh, I forgot to throw Ann Coulter in that mix as well. Glad prominent Reublicans want to now associate themselves with the Clintons.)
