The Disgrace that is Trinity United Church

What do you do when you are running for president and some of your closest friends seem to be doing everything in their power to cause problems for you? The only real choice you have if you want to avoid constant controversy, is to come out and publicly denounce their activities. Privately, you call them up and ask “what the hell were you thinking are you trying to bury me?”

This is exactly what Barack Obama has been forced to do yet again… but this time it’s not the fiery, race-baiting Jeremiah Wright that is causing problems. This time it’s the liberal-guilt ridden, race-baiting Catholic priest Michael Pfleger, another Chicago based CBS [Crazy Barack Supporter].

You really need to catch Father Pfleger’s act on YouTube, it’s like a cocaine fueled Saturday Night Live skit, and Pfleger puts Dana Carvey’s “Church Lady” to shame. Like SNL, Father Pfleger had a large studio audience at Trinity Church, and he was obviously playing to that audience as he mocked Hillary Clinton during his sermon / comedy act / demented rant. At one point Pfleger pulls out the Kleenex and dabs away imaginary tears channeling Clinton’s angst over being upstaged by Obama, when she, a white woman and wife of a former president, should have been guaranteed the nomination.

On Saturday Obama officially quit the Trinity church, stating that he didn’t want his "church experience to be a political circus — I think most American people will understand that, and wouldn't want to subject their church to that, either." Here’s something most American people now understand; that place you call a church is a circus, and the fact that you have been associated with Trinity and its people for 20 years should scare the hell out of voting America.

The congregants at Trinity were barely able to control themselves as Pfleger shouted through his demented racist screed against Hillary Clinton. Beneath the “amens” and “halleluiahs” there is a definite undercurrent of hatred running through this church. The pews are filled with angry people eager to hear that someone else is to blame for their problems. Their behavior in the video is as disgusting as Pfleger’s words. Some racists put on pointed hoods and robes,get together and call it a rally. Some racists put on their Sunday best,get together and call it church. Trinity United Church of Christ.

The videos of Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger portray what passes for religion at Trinity Church. Obama has been a member of this church for twenty years and only disassociated himself from it when these disturbing videos were made public. What kind of person attends a church where hatred, divisiveness, and ethnic slurs are included in the sermon every Sunday? Not the kind we need as president.
