Fox News:
Obama Condemns Pastor's Controversial Remarks
“Let me say at the outset that I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy,” he said in the statement. “I categorically denounce any statement that disparages our great country or serves to divide us from our allies. I also believe that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it’s on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. In sum, I reject outright the statements by Rev. Wright that are at issue.”

Obama said he never personally heard Wright preach the statements at the center of the controversy, but that he first learned of them when he launched his presidential campaign.

There, quite simply, is no way that you can be a member of a church for twenty years, get married there, have your children baptized there, have the preacher as your mentor, and not know the things he has said and what he and the church stand for. If Barack "vehemently" disagrees with or profoundly disagrees with such statements or positions of the church and its' minister, he would leave the church. I know I would.


  • I have left more then one church when the pastor got out of line.

    This should be an easy answer. Yet, Obama has tried to filter this so he can take both sides.

    No, I don't agree with every word that comes out of my ministers mouth but I have long since learned the difference in what would Jesus say.

  • Indeed.

    Most church going people have been members, or in the least, have most certainly attended more than one church in their lifetime.

    If you move into a new community, you more than likely try out a few new churches and select the one that suits you and with which you feel most comfortable.

    Barack has admitted that he found himself coming back again and again to this church. He was drawn to it.

    Most church going people would all make the same logical conclusion: If you join a church and become a member of 20 years, you obviously must subscribe to the teaching and beliefs of that church, and of the man behind the pulpit.

    Case closed. Anything else is pure spin and intellectually dishonest.
