Obama: Can't Back Off U.S. Committment Human Rights

Friday Press Conference, Barack Obama took a number of 'decent' questions, finally, from the mainstream press.

The last question redeemed a Press that apparantly is salivating over the comments and views of a man who is not running for President, Rev. Jerimiah Wright.

We suggest Wright write a book specifically about the historical aspects of each of his scurrilous comments.

Quickly, before November.

During the Press Conference, Obama stood his ground he didn't hear Wright specifically comment 'AIDS manmade by government..." or "Goddam, America"

(Isn't his why Obama didn't say at the end of his A More Perfect Union "race" speech, "God Bless America? When you think of it, people listening with one viewpoint or another may go into mass hysteria after listening to Sean Hannity and believe Obama said under his breath, "Goddump, America and Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs...")

Obama relayed he did hear a 9/11 comment - indicating something along those lines was made during an "Audacity of Hope" speech Wright gave. That speech formed the basis for some of the comments Obama made in his first book, and provided the title of his book the AUDACITY OF HOPE.

We would all do well to read both to determine how Obama was influenced by Wright's speech.

Obama however should be much more clear about what he did hear, and when. We don't need a clever politician running the country, we need somebody who can stand honestly for whatever he, or she, stands for...

Francis Schaeffer's son: Dad 'worse' than Obama's pastor
Charges black minister's 'anti-America' rhetoric mild by comparison
Posted: March 21, 2008 11:41 pm Eastern
By Art Moore WorldNetDaily

The anti-America rhetoric of Barack Obama's Chicago pastor is mild in comparison to pronouncements made by Francis Schaffer in the 1970s and 1980s, charges the late evangelical thinker's son.

Frank Schaeffer, who has written a book distancing himself from his evangelical roots, asserts in a newspaper column that Obama has been unfairly "smeared" by his association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., the Illinois senator's self-described spiritual mentor and moral compass.

Schaeffer, writing in the Baltimore Community Times, charges "the far-right Republicans and the stop-at-nothing Clintons are using the 'scandal' of Obama's preacher to undermine the first black American candidate with a serious shot at the presidency."

"Every Sunday thousands of right-wing white preachers (following in my father's footsteps) rail against America's sins from tens of thousands of pulpits," Schaeffer writes. "They tell us that America is complicit in the 'murder of the unborn,' has become 'Sodom' by coddling gays, and that our public schools are sinful places full of evolutionists and sex educators hell-bent on corrupting children."

In his column, Frank Schaeffer, meanwhile, argued "right-wing preachers" say, "as my dad often did, that we are, 'under the judgment of God.' They call America evil and warn of imminent destruction. By comparison Obama's minister's shouted 'controversial' comments were mild.

Frank Schaeffer

"All [Wright] said was that God should damn America for our racism and violence and that no one had ever used the N-word about Hillary Clinton," says Schaeffer, a convert to the Eastern Orthodox Church in 1990.

He argues that "while Dad and I crisscrossed America denouncing our nation's sins, instead of getting in trouble we became darlings of the Republican Party."

"We were rewarded for our 'stand' by people such as Congressman Jack Kemp, the Fords, Reagan and the Bush family," Schaeffer writes. "The top Republican leadership depended on preachers and agitators like us to energize their rank and file. No one called us un-American."

Double standard on Obama, preachers

When Sen. Obama’s preacher thundered about racism and injustice, Obama suffered smear-by-association. But when my late father - religious right leader Francis Schaeffer denounced America and even called for the violent overthrow of the U.S. government, he was invited to lunch with presidents Ford, Reagan and Bush Sr.
