As a part of their diatribe, seems the National Church of Christ is now calling for the nation to join as one on May 18th to have/begin the GREAT RACE TALK...curious Reverend John Thomas, President of the United Church of Christ, do WHITES get to help build the agenda for this discussion, or are we supposed to just sit back and listen to bigots like Jeremiah Wright toss insults and hate at us? Is your church going to call for an end to reverse racism and Affirmative Action, or are we Whites going to be told we need to keep paying, keep being treated as second class citizens to pay for the sins of people long ago dead?
Lastly, are you defending the church, and Senator Obama's decision not to leave the church for POLITCAL GAIN? The Catholic church hit the LOTTERY supporting George W. Bush in 2000, and your stance on these matters seems motivated by CHURCH GREED rather than a true concern for justice, and seeing that a man who made bigoted statements atone for his actions. You want to defend HATE as the President of the United Church of Christ, then you are no better than Jeremiah Wright, no better than Obama who has refused to rebuke a man who speads hate. Sitting here, I have to think the reason why Obama is winning is not because he is the best candidate, but because the media is afraid of being labeled bigots and racist if they truly VET the man.
