God And Man At Trinity United

I am trying to figure out more about Barack Obama because I think there is something strangely disconnected about the man. One theory I have… and I welcome others… is that he doesn’t take religion seriously at all–not just for himself, but in general. It is only something to be exploited. Therefore he thinks the words of Jeremiah Wright are “just for show” and he is free to cherry-pick what he wants and finds useful. Simultaneously, he doesn’t believe Ahmadinejad or Hamas, thinks their religious principles are baloney, just like Jeremiah Wright’s, and that they are simply exploiting them. Since it’s all a schuck, the Islamofascists can be reasoned with. I couldn’t imagine a worse man for our times.

Meanwhile, Stanley Kurtz reads through multiple back issues of Trinity United’s newsletter (started by Rev. Wright in the early 1980s) and comes to the obvious conclusion: “What did Barack Obama know and when did he know it?–I answer, Obama knew everything, and he’s known it for ages.”

(Or else he sure slept through a lot of sermons…)
