The Obamas leave Trinity [Karl]
Byron York heard it on CNN. I just heard it confirmed on FNC.
Apparently,Ã‚Â crazyass, race-baiting, crypto MarxistÃ‚Â politics dressed up as religion just got to be too much… when it came out of the mouth of a white priest.Ã‚Â Much harder to play the race card as trump.
Update: At a Saturday night news conference, Obama discussed his decision:
“I’m not denouncing the church and I’m not interested in people who want me to denounce the church,” he said, adding that the new pastor at Trinity and “the church have been suffering from the attention my campaign has focused on them.”
Obama said he and his wife had discussed and prayed on the issue with Trinity’s senior pastor, the Rev. Otis Moss, and hoped that the decision would withdraw Trinity from the spotlight.
Moss is fully devoted to TrinityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s program of Black Liberation Theology, and on Good Friday compared the scrutiny of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s race-baiting and conspiracy theory-mongering to a “public lynching.”Ã‚Â As part of the hip-hop generation, Moss calls himself Ã¢â‚¬Å“a theological DJÃ¢â‚¬Â — and in one sermon alluded to an Ice Cube rap titled,Ã‚Â “Wrong N-gga to f— with.”Ã‚Â It includes the lyrics “F— America, still with the triple K” and it uses the spelling “AmeriKKKa.”Ã‚Â Last month, ObamaÃ‚Â said this:
Well, you know, the new pastor — the young pastor, Reverend Otis Moss, is a wonderful young pastor. And as I said, I still very much value the Trinity community.
This is the community which can be seen hooting their approvalÃ‚Â of the remarks made by Wright and Pfleger.
Black Liberation Theology devotee Dwight Hopkins predicted that Obama’s resignation would not have a lasting impact on this “community”:
“They didn’t come there because of Obama,” Hopkins said. “They came there because of the House that Wright that built. And it’s still standing.”
Obama went there for the same reason — and will not denounce those who stay with the church of the poisoned mind.
Update x2: Minute-lanche!
