Well, unfortunately, no.
I was hopeful when I saw the headline, “Obama Quits Trinity United Church of Christ.”
I thought, Finally! after 20 years of sitting in the pews, listening to the hate, racism, anti-Americanism and antisemitism spewed by the Wrong Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Wrong Reverend Michael Pfleger and others — after 20 years of a congregation cheering the damnation of America, cheering as their pastors blamed America for everything from 9/11 to AIDS — that finally Barack Obama realized that he could no longer condone such hate and lies with his continued membership.
But, I was wrong.
Yes, he finally quit his church, but he made very clear it wasn’t because he was denouncing the church or their hate, anti-Americanism, racism or antisemitism, but to protect them…
“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.”
And this is the man who claims it is his judgment that qualifies him to be President of the United States?
If you had good judgment, senator, you would have stood up and walked out of that church as soon as you had heard the kind of bile they preach and as soon as you had seen the congregation raucously applauding it. If you had good judgment, sir, you wouldn’t have been married by Reverend Wright, your children would not have been baptized by that racist, nor would you allow them anywhere near his hateful, dishonest teachings. If you had good judgment, Mr. Obama, Rev. Wright wouldn’t have been your “spiritual guide,” nor your mentor, and you certainly wouldn’t have made him a campaign adviser because you would have denounced him long ago.
If you had good judgment, sir, you would realize there is a great deal to denounce about Trinity United Church of Christ.
The truth is, senator, you have horrible judgment.
