Sen. Barack Obama's campaign confirmed Saturday that he has resigned from the church where controversial sermons by his former pastor and other ministers created repeated political headaches for the Democratic frontrunner.
he resignation comes days after the Rev. Michael Pfleger, a visiting Catholic priest, mocked Obama's Democratic rival during a sermon at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois.
In the video, Pfleger wipes his eyes with a handkerchief and suggests that Sen. Hillary Clinton wept because she thought that as a white person and the wife of a former president, she was entitled to the presidency.
"And then, out of nowhere, came 'Hey, I'm Barack Obama,' " Pfleger said "And [Clinton] said, 'Oh, damn, where did you come from? I'm white! I'm entitled! There's a black man stealing my show!' "
Pfleger is a Catholic priest at St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church on Chicago's southwest side. He is also a friend of Trinity's former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, from whom Obama distanced himself in April.
Wright, Obama's minister for about 20 years, drew unwanted attention for the campaign when videos of his fiery sermons surfaced.
In the speeches, Wright suggested that the U.S. government may be responsible for the spread of AIDS in the black community and equated some American wartime activities to terrorism.
Obama has said he was not present for the controversial sermons by Wright or Pfleger. …
The rest of CNN’s story's here.
Of all the news organizations in Obama’s tank , CNN’s one of those deepest in his tank.
So it’s not surprising CNN describes Wright’s anti-white, racist, and anti-American sermons as merely “fiery” and “controversial.”
Many of Martin Luther King’s sermons were fiery and controversial but they didn’t contain that loud, raw, hate-filled racism and anti-Americanism we find in the sermons of Obama’s close friend and pastor of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright.
But CNN doesn’t want us to notice that.
How’d you like CNN fogging over for Obama with: “Obama has said he was not present for the controversial sermons by Wright or Pfleger?”
Pfleger delivered a sermon last Sunday at Trinity.
Wright’s been delivering them for twenty years.
CNN hopes we don’t notice the difference.
CNN worries if we do notice, we'll ask questions like:
"I don't understand why such nice people as the Obama's took their daughters to Wright's church for religious instruction after they'd known Wright all those years.Now it’s you’re turn.
"Has CNN or Bill Moyers ever asked the Obama's why they did that?"
