About Barack Obama and His Pastor

So Barack Obama has Islam in his background. So his United Church of Christ pastor preaches Marxist Liberation Theology and other false doctrines.

Could we please look past the skin color and look directly at the ideas? Could we please be able to critique the ideas without being called racists? If Geraldine Ferraro of all people could be tagged falsely with the racial charge, what does that tell us about the upcoming election and the battleground of ideas? Is all debate to be silenced because we are afraid of being called racists for disagreeing?

Get it, and get it now. I for one will not be silenced or intimidated. Barack Obama is wrong, and his pastor is wrong. Plenty of African-Americans think both of them are wrong. None of us will be intimidated or silenced by bogus racial politics. I plan on giving plenty of knuckle raps before it's over. Deal with it.

Sola,

Good for you! More people should be as forthright as you are!

I don't think it's so much me being forthright as it is me being irritated. Genuine political discourse is dying the death of 1,000 screams in this culture, and it's got to stop. It's such a distraction from the real issues.

Sola,

I'm frustrated too. You are right about genuine political discourse dying. True journalism seems to be going by the wayside too. Thankfully, there are still a handfull of "true" newscasters that will tell it like it is.
