Obama's pastor Jeremiah Wright: Former Muslim

According to an article in The New Republic last year.

"But Wright was a former Muslim and black nationalist who had studied at Howard and Chicago, and Trinity's guiding principles--what the church calls the "Black Value System"--included a "Disavowal of the Pursuit of 'Middleclassness.'"

This fact would go a long way to explaining why a christian church would give its highest honor to the leader of the Nation of Islam's fiery leader. And why Wright was so close to Louis Farrakhan that they traveled together to Libya (no doubt to get some $ to spread the doctrine.)

Obama may be entering the presidency under a dark cloud of cascading evidence of massive deception against everything America stands for. Unfortunately, the sheeple of the Democaratic party can only hear his words and lack the experience to look under the hood. It takes a level of instinctive intelligence to realize that there are people who will change their religion or philosophy as easily others change their clothing to fit the time and place.

Makes me remember some lyricis to a 1979 song by Bob Dylan, which sounds more relevant than Wright's "chickens coming home to roost" philosophy:

"Slow Train"
Sometimes I feel so low-down and disgusted
Can't help but wonder what's happening to my companions
Are they lost or are they found, have they counted the cost it'll take to bring down
All their earthly principles they're gonna have to abandon ?
There's slow, slow train coming up around the bend.

All that foreign oil controlling American soil
Look around you, it's just bound to make you embarrassed
Sheiks walking around like kings, wearing fancy jewels and nose rings
Deciding America's future from Amsterdam and to Paris
And there's slow, slow train coming up around the bend.

Man's ego is inflated, his laws are outdated, they don't apply no more
You can't rely no more to be standing around waiting
In the home of the brave, Jefferson turning over in his grave
Fools glorifying themselves, trying to manipulate Satan
And there's slow, slow train coming up around the bend.

Big-time negotiators, false healers and woman haters
Masters of the bluff and masters of the proposition
But the enemy I see wears a cloak of decency
All non-believers and men stealers talking in the name of religion
And there's slow, there's slow train coming up around the bend.
