Open Your Hate Books

The Washington Times reports that the church where Sen. Barack Obama has worshiped for the last twenty years publicly declares that its ministry is founded on a 1960s book that espouses "the destruction of the white enemy." Trinity United Church of Christ's Web site says its teachings are based on the black liberation theology of James H. Cone and his 1969 book "Black Theology and Black Power."

"What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love," Mr. Cone wrote in the book.

There is absolutely nothing Christian about any church which espouses such doctrine. And what manner of ignoramus joins a church without familiarizing himself with its doctrine? Certainly not anyone I want to be in the senate, never mind the oval office.

This kind of hate is disgusting and if Hillary Clinton or John McCain attended a church for twenty years that was founded on "What we need is the divine love as expressed in White Power," you can be absolutely certain their candidacy would be over, finished, finito!

So, ask yourself why is Barack not accountable. Just because he's half black, is he given a "get out of bigotry free" card? It's time Obama answered some hard questions with specifics or is that to much to hope for?
