"Leaving a church is never a simple transaction."

White this may be true, no evidence shows that for Obama *staying* in the church wasn't.

BumperStickerist

It's an inapt analogy - Episcopalians are God's frozen people.

~ ba-dump-bump ~

Also, my guess is that conservative members of the Church in question, left the building in which Gene Robinson preached.

Also, it's reasonable to expect that a candidate who worshiped at Rev. Robinson's services for twenty years, counted Rev. Robinson as a spirtual mentor, and added Rev. Robinson to his team of advisors would have Andrew Sullivan as their Press Secretary.

~ ba dump bump ~

clarice

Very good work, TM. I cannot grasp Peretz' blindness on this score. For one thing, he's a staunch Israel supporter and in his heart of hearts he has to know that Obama and those he has looked to as advisers are anything but.
Is this a cry for help--a wish to be back in the swing of the Georgetown cocktail set again aafter his years in the wilderness for his support of Bush?

Der Hahn

Dean's conversion on the bike path to Damascus was one of the first things I thought of when people started claiming Obama didn't have to leave Trinity UCC over 'minor disagreements' with Wright.

DebinNC

I hope the Trinity/Wright issue doesn't fade before black liberation theology is exposed to voters. Wright unashamedly points to the racist writings of James H. Cone to explain his and Trinity's Afri-centrism, but the press isn't interested in the radical beliefs of Coneheads. Thank God McCain is not a member of Opus Dei, or the media alarm bells would be ringing 24/7 for the next 9 mos..

Neo

It's one thing to give pause to changing churches in a rural settings, as the churches are a bit more spread out, but in Chicago .. please.

I've know people how changed churches over just how far away it was, like 2 minutes vs 3 minutes.

I think it all warps around what Christopher Hitchens latched onto .. his "street cred."

Plainly, it was a calculated decision on Obama's part.

GMax

The difference?

You dont have to have understanding for bike paths!

bgates

[N]o one has even suggested that Obama agrees with any of Wright's controversial words.
Let me remedy that deficiency in the national conversation right now. I think it's more likely that Wright and Obama are both liars, Wright about his hatred for America and Obama about his love, but if only one of them is telling the truth it's Wright.
In fact, one knows from the senator's own words past and present that his love of country is unsurpassed
No, one doesn't.

DebinNC

I think Obama found in Wright the strong, affirming black father he never had, that he loves and respects Wright devotedly, and agrees with him on most things, including who the oppressed and their oppressors are.

Neo

You know in a not so strange way Barack Obama could be considered a "carpetbagger."

I mean he is an "Afro-American" volunteer, bing the child of a white American moterh and black Kenyan father. He has no real tie to the "Black Experience" than a dark Indian.

The whole "Trinity Church thing" is a primer in the ways of Black Americans for him.

SteveMG

Leaving is one thing.

Not expressing disagreement or disapproval - publicly or privately - with the radical and racialist (if not racist) sermons by your Minister is another.

The Scottish writer Thomas Carlyle was once asked by a young man what he (the man) could do to save the world. "Go back to Scotland and make a decent man of yourself", Carlyle replied.

Obama wants to "repair the world". Okay, we'll start in Chicago at one of the larger denomination.

Question: Would Obama recommend the Church's teachings and worldview to others searching for spiritual guidance?

Jane

Steve, that's just a great question!

pagar

I think Bgates has it exactly right.

"In fact, one knows from the senator's own words past and present that his love of country is unsurpassed"
"No, one doesn't."

I don't see a single thing in Obama that says love of country, and I don't see how anyone else does.

boris

No, one doesn't.

Especially since what he says is so contrary to how he lives. It is fair to ask which group is being pandered to, the black culture he has adopted, or the mixed culture he grew up in.

boris

He seems to be saying "Mixed culture didn't work for me but YES WE CAN make it work for YOU".

ben

"In fact, ONE knows from the senator's own WORDS past and present that his love of country is unsurpassed"

ONE knows, Marty Peretz.....for the rest of us the evidence is rather thin....

Then, of course, we can always contrast Obama's words with McCain's actions..

Ranger

In fact, one knows from the senator's own words past and present that his love of country is unsurpassed

Well, Obama does say he loves his country. But the good book says "By their deeds you shall know them" not, by their words. As for deeds, he wont wear a US Flag pin and he won't put his hand over his heart for the national anthem. Those deeds don't speak of love for country to me.

It is very telling that Mr. Peretz didn't even try to tell people that Obama has acted in ways that inform people he loves his country.

Soylent Red

I think Obama found in Wright the strong, affirming black father he never had

That's always been how this struck me.

Here's a guy chasing his mother's socialist conception of blackness, in order to be more like a daddy who abandoned them. All because he is too light skinned and was raised "too white".

I don't think we need that kind of Oedipal Petri dish in charge of the country.


And yes SteveMG: that is a great question. I doubt any journalist will ask it though.

Chris

"It is fair to ask which group is being pandered to, the black culture he has adopted, or the mixed culture he grew up in."

What about the secular elite chattering class? BHO's definitely made huge inroads pandering to that crowd. Normally, quitting a church, any church, would establish "street cred" with the sec. prog. crowd. Look at Deano.

clarice

ditto--soylent--Steve's question is great..
And I agree with the oedipal petri dish analysis..

Just as his mom lived out her life--even marrying two men of color jerks-- to please her cuckoo dad, I think.

Bob

Well it's been a long while since I've posted here, but Obama's magic Reverend has finally gone over the line with yesterdays quote of him calling Italians "garlic noses"... not sure this was a good idea. Just look at what Spitzer got in NY, by going after my fellow Italian American Joe Bruno!

Rick Ballard

"By their deeds you shall know them""

Yep. And by the deed of walking out, millions upon millions of Americans have indicated their disgust with mainline denominations which embrace the leftist "social gospel" which reaches its nadir with Cone's BLT (no damn mayo) phonyness.

Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians and Lutherans have reduced membership in each of their respective denominations to skeletons of what they were 35 years ago. Beyond that, each of those denominations are currently involved in serious schism with the lefties who hold high denominational office using their control of local church property as a club with which to force a local church into submission to doctrine with which it may deeply disagree.

Once again, the Gramscian "long march through the institutions" was "successful" with the result that the institution is dying.

OTOH - the Gramscian death sentence for the mainlines has aided the growth of new churches, primarily nondenominational, which recognize clearly that the Conehead churches exhibit a remarkable lack of understanding of the book from which they disingenously claim legitimacy.

It is very difficult to judge Obama by his deeds, there being a great paucity of actual deeds upon which to base an opinion. With Clinton, the situation is different. We can examine things that she has actually accomplished beginning with her activities in her first position of any responsibility. The man she worked for at that time judged her unfit to hold any position of public trust in the future. Nothing she has done since 1974 indicates that her superior misjudged her.

DebinNC

"It is fair to ask which group is being pandered to, the black culture he has adopted, or the mixed culture he grew up in."

Honolulu County today is 3% black, 25% white, and 45% asian. I don't know how it was when Obama was living off and on there with his racist grandma, but his "differentness" surely must have impacted his life. Does he think of asians as white? Did he resent their success and think of them as oppressors growing up? Obama's official website is nearly silent on his pre-college years. Why?

GMax

That 73% what are the other 27% Martians? Or have the Cuban boats been being diverted there do to vigorous Coast Guard patrol off Florida!

"Gov. Aníbal Acevedo Vilá is expected to turn himself in and charged with campaign related crimes: conspiracy to violate election laws, making false statements, wire fraud, program fraud, conspiracy to defraud the IRS and filing a false tax return.

Well you do have to read quite aways down the story to come up with this gem....notice the subtle reference to how the "Democratic Party is popular" in PR

"The governor's supporters claimed the case is another example of a Republican-led Justice Department going after Democrats.

Acevedo, a member of Puerto Rico's Popular Democratic Party, is in the midst of a reelection campaign."

I am not picking on you, its the accountant in me but now we have 104%! From short to too many.

And am I to understand that Asian does not include Pacific Islander such that Asian is probably mostly Japanese in Honolulu.

Maui is very different than Honolulu then. I would say much less Asians, lots more Hawaiian or mixed Hawaiian and something else. Never having been to Honolulu I will have to take this at face value.

"I heard the news about the PR governor on the car radio this morning and I knew he must be a Dem because they didn't say either way. So predictable"

Yes, if he was Republican we could have predicted something like:

Another Republican Governor Indicted

Further adding to Republican political woes and joining a long list of Republicans charged with ethical and criminal violations, embattled Republican Governor So and So was charged with 254 felonies. According to Howard Dean, it's another example of the Republican's culture of corruption, so pervasive in the Bush administration. At a press conference to comment on the latest Republican scandal, Nancy Pelosi.....

Rick Ballard

Rod Blagojevich is in the net, too. Same status as Spitzer - "awaiting indictment".

The contagiousness of the Culture of Corruption is really unbelievable. Some of these guys were apparently deeply infected before they ever dealt with a Republican. How is that possible?

Clinton wasn't indicted either--merely impeached, fined and disbarred.

I'm not at all sure what "one" is entitled to conclude from Obaba's words (which seem to comprise his entire arsenal) about his love of this country. On the other hand, I think we can conclude that he is happily married to a woman whose love of country is at best conditional, and has developed only very recently.

GMax,

Please check footnote (b) even though it isn't referenced in the main table: "(b) Hispanics may be of any race, so also are included in applicable race categories."

This hispanic/non-hispanic split in federal categories (due to reporting requirements in the law/Federal Register) has gotten to the point that otherwise intelligent people I know think that "ethnicity" means "hispanicness" while race is for everything else.

GMax

DebinNC it says in small print that Hispanics can be of any race and and therefore are also included elsewhere. So if you exclude Hispanics you get down to 100% I think.

The picture is supposed to be the madam, yes, but it also contains this: "A source said Davis personally serviced Spitzer."

"She personally interfaced with Spitzer a number of times" since 2003 before she became a madam, a source close to Davis said."

My favorite revelation still has to be :"Nor was there word on whether Spitzer wore his socks during his alleged escort encounters. Last week, it was revealed Republican dirty-tricks operative Roger Stone told the FBI that Spitzer kept his socks on during sex with a Florida prostitute."

The Pubs have at least one 'dirty-tricks operative'? Who knew. Maybe there's hope for the post Atwater party to fight fire with fire after all.

Jesus--that revelation might just be a tipping point for the embattled Mrs. Spitzer. How must she feel now?

Again, the fawning sycophants will see something profound and inspiring because Obama stated a POSITION. In Obama's nanny state, irresponsible consumers will be tenderly admonished and promptly reimbursed.

In Texas, it used to be illegal to take out a home equity loan on your main home but in 1997 public pressure got the law changed.

They are both in their 50s. The loan was for 30 years. The cars are already wore out and they need new ones, the computer is outdated and they will be paying for this loan until they are in their 80s.

Pofarmer - when talk of immigration amnesty started up around 2005, I wrote to my Senators and asked whether there were other illegal activities the Senate was considering forgiving, so I could get in on the action. I suggested arson or some kind of white collar fraud.

You know sometimes you read something and you do really digest it.

I just read this again and it makes me twice as mad as before ..

"If Barack gets past the primary," said the Rev. Jeremiah Wright to the New York Times in April of last year, "he might have to publicly distance himself from me. I said it to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen."

Pause just for a moment, if only to admire the sheer calculating self-confidence of this. Sen. Obama has long known perfectly well, in other words, that he'd one day have to put some daylight between himself and a bigmouth Farrakhan fan. But he felt he needed his South Side Chicago "base" in the meantime. So he coldly decided to double-cross that bridge when he came to it. And now we are all supposed to marvel at the silky success of the maneuver.

Rick Ballard

For those who enjoy leading, rather than trailing, indicators - the spike in the MBA Weekly Application Survey coupled (or caused) by the drop in 30 year rates provides a ray of sunshine. That jump in the refi rate indicates that a very decent number of those sucker loans are going to be paid off without default.

The drop in the 30 year rate (and the LIBOR rate) also means that even those who can't refi a sucker loan are going to take less of a hit in the adjustment.

BTW - REOs are being successfully dumped at a very strong rate in California. There's a bell ringing for those who have ears to hear it.

The contagiousness of the Culture of Corruption is really unbelievable.

And Spitzer's replacement is having all sorts of difficulties. I'm sure he never imagined himself being thrust into the limelight and having his actions scrutinized. It shows how much of this stuff is going on undar the radar.

glasater

OK--Here is a "cut and paste" and apologies ahead of time but there isn't a link to provide.

It goes to the Obamas' and how they are not invested in our country--from John Fund's Political Journal.

"Uninvested?

Barack Obama is scheduled to give a major economic speech today in New York, where the financial markets have been rattled in recent weeks, to put it mildly. That makes it all the more curious that Mr. Obama's tax returns, which he released this week, apparently show that he and his wife Michelle have next to no stake in the investor class.

Ryan Ellis of the American Shareholders Association has examined the Obama returns for calendar years 2001 to 2006 and found that, in all of those years, the couple reported a mere $1,188 in dividends in 2006 and another $2,754 in dividends in 2005. In the previous years, they reported no dividends of any kind.

Indeed, even though Michelle Obama had a large self-employment income from the University of Chicago's Hospital System that often exceeded $1 million a year, she appears to have neither a 401(k) plan or an IRA for retirement contributions. In another sign the Obama household wasn't into building a nest egg, the couple cashed out $6,260 from a pension or 401(k) plan in 2000.

Given all this, Mr. Ellis asks why the Senator is so "hell-bent on pursuing punitive taxes on capital that would wreck America's retirement savings?" His answer: Perhaps it's "because, by and large, he doesn't have any skin in the game."

Rasmussen....

"Fifty-three percent (53%) of Americans say that the federal government should not help out homeowners who borrowed more than they could afford. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 29% disagreed and believed that federal action is appropriate. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure."

So maybe Obama overestimated the "impact" of this type of pandering.

glasater

That the Obamas either do not understand or care to understand--savings, investment, etc.--is both frightening and sad.

Another positive sign of the $200b of mortgage collateral the Fed had indicated it was willing to accept as collateral for loans, on $86B will subscribed today.
