article imageEnter Rev. Michael Pfleger, Another Preacher Problem From Obama's Church

By Dave Giza     May 29, 2008 in Politics
Reverend Michael Pfleger, a white minister who is reportedly to be Rev. Jeremiah Wright's best friend, gives a blatantly racist speech against Hillary Clinton and the white race.
This video shows Reverend Michael Pfleger giving a short but an extremely loud and bitingly caustic racial diatribe against Hillary Clinton and white people. As the Chicago Tribune reports: "The church has been Obama's spiritual home for years and also triggered a controversy this spring over remarks made by Obama's longtime pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr."
You can judge for yourself but I view it as a message of hate and intolerance. Senator Obama immediately denounced it, saying:
"I am deeply disappointed in Father Pfleger's divisive, backward-looking rhetoric, which doesn't reflect the country I see or the desire of people across America to come together in common cause," Obama said in a statement.
Pfleger also issued an apology.
If anyone questions why we have separation of church and state in this country, it's because of people like Revs. Hagee, Wright and Pfleger who are egomaniacal fanatics hellbent on dividing this country along religious and racial lines for personal publicity. The parishioners who follow and give money to these messengers of hate and intolerance are the real culprits here. Why would any sane person support these lunatics? It's unconscionable to me why grown men would use religion and God in this way.
