Fla and Mich seated for 1/2 vote

Published:

Fla and Mich went to Hillary and they counted for 1/2 vote.  Senater Obama resigned from his church.  I can only imagine from seeing those few blips on the televison how entertaining that church has been over the years. To me, a church must use restraint in dealing with political issues because it brings to question "Who Are They Really Serving?"  It is alright to comment on political issues specially if they appear to be unfair, however, a whole sermon complete with theatrics is going too far.  It is sad when a man's worst enemy seems to be his Church.

IN THE LAST DAYS, MANY SHALL COME IN MY NAME, FOLLOW THEM NOT.

I watched C-Span live for about an hour and Clinton supporters didn't seem very happy, but everyone looked tired and wanted to go home. I agree with you about the church and, my personal feelings on the candidates aside, I don't understand what these preachers had in mind, since any controversy will obviously have a negative effect on a candidate.

The black church has always been the strongest institution in the black community. It's has been the place to support issues, politics; the biggest influence and biggest voice. It's always been like that and I hope it never change.

I have attended church and I have NEVER seen anything remotely close to what I have seen of his church! All black churches are not the same.

There was a time when the church was the only relatively safe place to express such frustrations for some. You rarely get a thorough picture from the "news". Once I found a 10 min clip of Wright's (in)famous sermon, online, the remarks made much more sense to me. Context is key.

Doesn't matter if we're talking about a church, a country club or a KKK rally. The First Amendment guarantees Freedom of Speech, doesn't it? The issue here isn't the church or the organization itself. If a White presidential candidate belongs to a country club that doesn't allow Blacks or Hispanics or Jews, then he/she will be judged for his personal lifestyle and choices. However, anyone else has the right to say, think, act in any way he pleases if the law isn't broken. A minister has every right to preach what he wants and each parishioner can choose to attend or go to another church. However, a minister leads a church and a president leads a country. So there is no comparison at all here. I don't think anyone is criticizing the ministers or the members of his church. But someone who is going to live in the White House needs to fall under more scrutiny, his personal beliefs & purpose must be examined and his goals must be investigated.
