According to Gaywired.com Meeks had been described by the Chicago Sun Times as someone Barack Obama regularly seeks out for “spiritual counsel.”
Meeks, whose also a state senator, reportedly will serve as an Obama delegate to the Democratic convention in Denver this August.
Here’s a You Tube video of a recent network affiliate CBS2 news segment. It includes an interview with Meeks that’s hard to believe:
Rob at Say Anything said this about Sen. Obama and his relationship with Meeks:
This man appeared in Obama campaign commercials. He served on Obama campaign committees. Obama campaigned at his church. Obama sought him out for “spiritual counsel” and political support.Amen, Brother Rob.
Is Obama going to tell us, again, that he had all this interaction with Meeks but didn’t know the man was a bigoted, race-baiting homophobe? Is the media going to give Obama another pass for associating, closely and repeatedly, with a cretin like this?
How many hateful “crazy uncles” have to come out of Obama’s closet before we can say that there’s a reason why Obama sought these people out? And that reason is he agrees with them?
