Barack Obama's Liberation Theology

Here's a pretty disturbing piece about the Afro-centric liberation theology espoused by Barack Obama's pastor and other mentors. It comes from Kyle-Anne Shiver and is published in American Thinker.

I'm not buying the Obama campaign spin on Michelle Obama's patriotic faux pas this week, any more than I'm inclined to believe that Barack Obama's refusal to wear our flag pin in his lapel is a meaningless gesture. Both Michelle's stated lack of pride in America until this precise moment in history, and Barack's unwillingness to don our national symbol are in perfect keeping with the doctrines of their church, Trinity United Church of Christ.

The simple truth is that if any of us exposed ourselves to the kind of teachings espoused by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright
[shown here with Obama] for 20 years, we might find it downright impossible to do any better than Barack and Michelle in the loving-America category of citizenship...

According to the writings of Cone and the preaching of Rev. Wright, America can lay no claim whatsoever to any sort of goodness, and will perhaps never be able to do so until we are all residing in one, big, happy Marxist America with the presently "oppressed" on top and the evil "oppressors" on the bottom.

When these theologians re-wrote the gospel around their political ideology, they evidently came up with a way to make two wrongs into right.

Not exactly changing water into wine, walking on water, healing the maimed, the deaf and the blind, but quite a feat nevertheless...
