The Chicken flew the Coop

Reader comment on item: "America's Chickens are Coming Home to Roost"

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Mar 15, 2008 at 22:23

I find it interesting that Barack Obama had repeatedly pointed to the Trinity Church as proof positive he was a Christian. Pastor Wright performed Barack's marriage ceremony. Pastor Wright baptized his children.

Pastor Wright was described by Barack as "my friend, my mentor, my trusted advisor."

Pastor Wright was a member of Barack's Pesidential campaign, serving on Barack's "spiritual advisory board" - until a few days ago, when the chit (chicken) hit the fan.

Now Barack describes Pastor Wright "like an uncle", who is "retired" from the position of Pastor of Trinity Church. As more and more video of Barack Obama's pastor - multiple "sermons" (dating back to 9-11) - is revealed, Barack Obama will continue to try to distance himself.

Quite different from "I've been a member of the same Church for twenty years." Quite unbelievable that Obama was not aware of his pastor's views.

It is quite unbelievable that Barack Obama was not aware of his pastor's views.
