Very valid points.

Liberation theology, well explained.

"If one examines the tenets of faith as espoused by Obama's mentor, one Reverend Wright, it becomes even more concerning that this mentor has influenced Obama with standard liberation theological-like views long held by the Black Muslims....."

Which always brings me back to the issue of slavery. If you are demanding retribution for slavery in the U.S. why not admit the truth of Arab/Muslim slave trading, which Black Muslims seem to ignore. Let's talk about the janjaweed in Sudan. Sorry, most of the blacks killed in Sudan were not animists...the only thing they all have in common is race, many being Muslims as well.

Submitting....
