Seriously, thirty seconds in and you knew this preacher didn't know what the hell he was talking about, you definately could tell he hadn't read his book...

Diamond, does it bring you pleasure to find a black preacher that doesn't like Obama? Was that the point?

Well, when a preacher, a supposed servant of God, engages in a slur of racial epithets, and I quote:

Quote:
You nigger, you! You nigger you!! you NIGGER YOU!!! You perveted low white trash!! You perveted scum of the Earth!! Glue sniftin', trenchcoat mafia white trash!!!!
I tend to discount the rest of his opinions as the rantings of a madman, and it also seems to indicate that he has some issues with Obama's mixed ethnicity. Nevermind that these are words spoken in a supposed house of the Lord, by someone who is supposed to be an example to his community of how to be a Christian. Lovely.

Add on top of that the fact that he claims to speak for Obama's grandmother when he clearly hasn't met her and doesn't know her or her relationship with Obama, yeah. I don't give this guy too much credit.

Quote:
"I've watched something over this last year and a half as I've watched this man go from one level of international and national prominence to another. Not once has his grandmother ever come to any of his events.

...

You know why? Let me tell you, let me tell you why. Because she knows that he is hate filled. She knows that he should not be elected as President. She knows him, she knows his heart. She knows the kind of man that I have described him to be. She knows that he is a liar par excellence, that he is full of hate and that he should not be trusted and he should not lead America. She knows that and that's why she's not there in support."
What an utterly awful, undignified and hateful thing to say about someone you don't even know.

It's hate speech, pure and simple.

I hope we know... Not counting on it, but it'd be nice to wake up November 5th with a pretty clear idea of how the next four years are going to go...

Well the preacher is an African American, it's racist to judge his beliefs without some in depth consideration, his peppery language is understandable if not justifiable because his people have been abused by the system and after that horrid Reverend Wright business we ought to be more understanding of where colourful religious leaders are coming from, I for one hope we can all try and understand where he is coming from, not question the judgement of those who attend his sermons and refrain from attaching racist labels like hate speech to his preachings, it would be only fair.

Is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling it's going to be a very strange post election atmosphere no matter who wins?

And not just the ordinary my guy lost, but something we haven't seen in a long while...

I think we can probably count on charges of voter fraud, if Obama wins Republicans will be pointing at acorn, if McCain wins Democrats will be pointing at voting machines.

I also think that no matter what this country racially will be very uneasy for awhile... If Obama wins you'll see the disgruntled racists and the folks that think he's still a Muslim, and if McCain wins you'll see a lot of people asking how did this happen and blame racism.

You're either going to have the pissed off "our country is going socialist" crowd, or the pissed off "not again" crowd...

I do not envy this next president, not only will he have to deal with one of the worse economic times in our history, two wars, and the hangover from Bush; but I also get the feeling he'll have to deal with a lot of unrest domestically, and how he deals with that unrest will be one of the first signs of how he'll be as president.

Am I the only one in thinking this?

I stopped listening after he said that Barack Obama knows better than he does that his mother was trash

That's the best you can come up with?

Is that from yet another e-mail? Spam filter is your best friend.

He's getting the same emails my wacko mother-in-law gets, she puts zero critical thought into reading them and checking if they're true and then forwards them to everyone they know. Sound familiar ? It must be something they teach in "religious-nut 101"
