This is a Sermon...on Christmas?!

"During a Christmas sermon, Wright [Obama's Pastor] tried to compare Obama's upbringing to Jesus at the hands of the Romans.

"Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people," Wright said. "Hillary would never know that.

"Hillary ain't never been called a nigger. Hillary has never had a people defined as a non-person."

In his Jan. 13 sermon, Wright said:

"Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us. No he ain't! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty." (source)

Funny, Jeremiah A. Wright is even whiter than Obama...

I was wondering what would be happening in the news if John McCain's website had this mission statement:

[We are a congregation which is Unashamedly White and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the White religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are Caucasian people, and remain "true to our manifest destiny," the founding fathers, the cradle of democracy. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of revolution, the days of civil unrest, and the long nights of reverse racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a White worship service and ministries which address the Caucasian Community.] (Adapted from 'trinity United Church of Christ's Mission Statement)
