    Jebidiah, it's not obsession, but concern. There's so much violence, drugs, crime, unwed pregnancy etc, in the Black community and until Blacks come to grips with that and deal with it, there will be unending concern.

    Lol...No need to defend anyone against yet another specious and ignorant right-wing attack. It's enough to ridicule such claptrap nonsense.

    Indeed. It only took one black man elected as potus to send them all into severe brain farts and reveal the inbred racism that is at the core of right-wing ideology.
    Poor dears will probably implode if Obama is re-elected.

    There is a social aspect, certainly, but Jesus never argued for communism. The idea was that the church should help the poor and the weak, not that the government should take things over.

    Tried to rep you but the deck seems to be stacked against me doing so.

    The negation of the rep was that I should "spread the rep before repping you". Which is wierd because I didn't post for approx two weeks prior to today.

    The first time I came across Liberation Theology was with Sabeel in Palestine. Its called (there) Non violent Liberation Theology.. think Martin Luther King and Ghandi.

    Its based on the Sermon on the Mount.

    This is another example of why government meddling turns out bad. Housing projects have been a breeding ground of criminal behavior for years! Giving someone a house (or apartment in this case) does nothing but create more crime and criminals. They aren't invested in this, they didn't work and save to own it. Everyone knows that when someone works, saves and pays for something, they take better care of it. They respect the neighbors and neighborhood they live in. Not so when it's given TO them.

    Where do you see race in his presidency? Where's the racial agenda? Are you outrageous?

    It's not preaching. He/she is right and you're wrong. It's mere fact. I guess it hurts, that axion is correct!

    Apparently I was right, it's well noticed.

    So, the real message of Jesus is BLT, and Barack Obama is completely in line with the real mission of Jesus, according to BLTers.

    Then why did he throw Rev Jeremiah Wright under the bus?

    This leaves only two options. He is BLTer...or a serial liar.

    Unless of course he is both a serial liar and BLTer. ;-)

    It's pretty funny to me, all the conservatives I talk to in real life are decent people, at least to my face, however, on a forum like this one, it is just blatent racism. The really unbelieveable thing is some posters here actually were arguing about not being able to be called a racist, I see why now....but if you say anyting about them, the first thing screamed is the "race card"

    That's actually incorrect Trinnity. The term "Libertarian" actually has a wide range of interpretations, and outside of the United States is synonymous with anarchism. The idea of libertarianism being a right of centre stream of though is actually an American one.

    Nice post! Gotta love American ignorance. It doesn't prevent racists from running their mouths. LOL.

    Exactly right. Libs even distort Jesus. It's very uncool.

    Call it "SOCIAL JUSTICE" you might be correct, but then to justify social justice for people living decades to centuries ago seems a little ridiculous. Personally I call Rev. Wright's rants illegal incitement, not even legal, yelling fire in that theater, when there is no fire, so to speak....Apparently the Messiah HIMSELF, agrees asking/telling him to shut up during the 2008 elections. See Hannity's show on FOX this week for that.....

    Like all socialists with power Obama moved to Fascism a long time ago. A socialist is only a socialist as long as they have no power. A socialist once they get power always becomes a fascist.

    Once again wikipedia is stuck in a (*)(*)(*)(*)ing time warp where a word is used to identify a movement that didn't exist yet. Can you read anything critically or do you just read to confirm you own bias.
