Hi. I'm trying to think of another description to put here. Any ideas? I'll try again at 420.

Black Liberation Theology

Obama has "distanced" himself from Trinity Church. For a moment, that seemed to be a good thing but as the Presidential candidate spoke it became clear that he was leaving so that Trinity would be free to worship without the watchful eye of the media. Obama confirmed that fact later when a reporter asked him why he won't denounce the controversial church with the answer, "I'm not going to denounce Trinity because Trinity isn't worthy of denouncing." Regardless of how that sounded, he meant it in a good way.

More disappointing than the Senator's refusal to denounce a racist church was the media's lack of questioning regarding the Black Liberation Theology. Did you ever wonder how people in black churches could possibly cheer for racist rants while sitting in a church of God? I did. So I began to search for an answer to that question.

The answer is simple. They aren't there to worship God. They are there to "settle the score" between blacks and non-blacks. And how can these people worship a racist man such as Jeremiah White? That's another easy one. Wright and other racists have done what so many evil men have done in the past...he has taken a passage from the bible to justify his hate. James Cone, one of the founders of Black Liberation Theology, uses this passage to claim righteousness:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18-19)

I always thought that black churches were Christian churches and while many of them certainly ARE Christian churches, many more are nothing more than rallying points for those who believe that Christianity offers nothing to the black man in THIS world. Christians believe in another world that Black Liberation Theologians do not want to wait for.

James Cone defines the savior that BLT's worship:

"Christ is black therefore not because of some cultural or psychological need of black people, but because and only because Christ really enters into our world where the poor were despised and the black are, disclosing that he is with them enduring humiliation and pain and transforming oppressed slaves into liberating servants."

Yes...that does, indeed, sound familiar. We heard it in Nazi Germany when Hitler decided that God's only true people were those of Aryan descent. Speaking of God, what does Cone say about The Almighty? His very own words answer that question:

"Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community ... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. 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. "

Cone and his followers are preaching that a God who does not love blacks and blacks alone is an evil God who must be destroyed. This is not a secret goal of BLT's...they preach it out in the open with neither shame nor fear of Whitey hearing them.

Most blacks believe in the God of forgiveness and love of all peoples. So, it isn't as though Obama couldn't have found a nice Christian church to belong to. But, for one reason or another, he chose to worship in a church that openly threatens the God of Christianity. Did he do it because that's what he believes? Or did he do it for political expediency? In Chicago, the BLT's are a rather powerful group and apparently a "must have" when it comes to local power seekers. Neither rationale speaks well of Obama.

Obama's Islamic name worries many Americans. It needn't. Obama is apparently not a Muslim...he is not a Christian...he is a member of a church that preaches Black Liberation Theology. None of this is a surprise to the man who would be President. He has always been aware of the teachings of his church.

When I had my children christened, I had them christened in the church that they would be raised in. I hoped that my children would learn about a loving God and a religion that teaches tolerance for all of God's children. I never took them to a KKK rally. That's because I didn't want them to become White Supremacists. Obama has been taking his family to the temple of hate for twenty years. He had his children baptized in the church that he and his wife chose out of many, many other churches in the Chicago area.

What do you suppose it was about that church that so impressed the Obama's? Was it the fact that BLT teaches complete alienation from white people? Was it the Nazi-like beliefs that BLT espouses? Was it the fact that BLT teaches the total annihilation of the "white God"? Or does he like the, "If you're not for us then you're against us" mentality of BLT's?

Who is Obama? And if he worships a church that teaches black children to hate the white people, what is he up to? What are his plans when and if he ever becomes president? Does he plan on representing all Americans? Or does he plan on being true to his chosen church which maintains that salvation comes in the form of a black entity who will destroy the God of the white man?

Many people have justified Wright's racist rant by saying that his words were taken out of context. Perhaps they were. The problem is that the context that the words were in is much, much worse than any of us ever thought. People have said that we should have listened to the entire sermon that Wright preached the day he "damned America". It's impossible to do so because all traces of that sermon have been hidden away so that mainstream America, white, black and everyone in between, doesn't notice that there is most assuredly...a new Hitler in town.

PS I read a comment on FreeRepublic.com and if I hadn't just learned what the BLT church was, I would have passed over the rest of the comment as another racist rant. But in this case, the "rant" is quite prophetic, true and frightening. If you know me at all you know that I am not an alarmist. I wouldn't want to sully my reputation with racist non-sense. But this Black Liberation Theology is REAL and it is SCARY. The "followers" aren't even TRYING to hide it from you!

"Obama’s Mentor Wright -- Not “Typical” Racist (vanity)
Reverend Wright -- Senator Obama’s avowed mentor -- is not your “typical” racist.
He’s an Afro-centric racist!
Think “killer” Africanized bees vs. your everyday “typical” honey bee.
Both can sting, but the Africanized killers bees are far more likely to attack than typical normal bees.
Bees are interesting in that when they sting… they die!
Like the strap-a-bomb-on terrorists that kill others by blowing themselves up!"

Prove it to yourself by doing a computer search on Black Liberation Theology and when you do, send the information to fellow Americans. This is something that we all need to know. Hurry up now...go do what I told you to do!

Cone says about white people:

"...For them, loving one's neighbor "becomes emotional and sentimental. This sentimental, condescending love accounts for their desire to "help" by relieving the physical pains of the suffering blacks so they can satisfy their own religious piety and keep the poor powerless." But advocates of a black theology of liberation will not allow whites to get off so easy. "Authentic love is not 'help,'" Cone writes, "not giving Christmas baskets, but working for political, social, and economic justice, which always means a redistribution of power. It is the kind of power which enables blacks to fight their own battles and thus keep their dignity..."

“A moral or theological appeal based on a white definition of morality or theology will serve as a detriment to our attainment of black freedom. The only option we blacks have is to fight in every way possible, so that we can create a definition of freedom based on our own history and culture. We must not expect white people to give us freedom. Freedom is not a gift, but a responsibility, and thus must be taken against the will of those who hold us in bondage.”

"...Theologically," Cone affirms, "Malcolm X was not far wrong when he called the white man 'the devil.'" The false Christianity of the white-devil oppressor must be replaced by an authentic Christianity fully identified with the poor and oppressed..."

Excerpt from the BLT Mission Statement:

"...We are called out to be "a chosen people" that pays no attention to socio-economic or educational backgrounds. We are made up of the highly educated and the uneducated. Our congregation is a combination of the haves and the have-nots; the economically disadvantaged, the under-class, the unemployed and the employable. The fortunate who are among us combine forces with the less fortunate to become agents of change for God who is not pleased with America’s economic mal-distribution!..."

"These people are a part of me. And they are part of America, this country that I love.."
-Barack Obama (speaking of his fellow BLT parishoners)
