Obama’s Other Problematic Pastor


Reverend James T. Meeks is a Democratic member of the Illinois State Senate, and presides over The Salem Baptist Church of Chicago. The church describes itself on its website as “a beacon of peace and hope for countless thousands in Chicago’s Roseland community.” They claim membership of over 22,000. Reverend Meeks is also a pledged delegate to, and a personal friend of, Barack Obama, campaigning for him in his 2004 U.S. Senate run as well as being a vocal supporter of his presidential campaign. They’re so close, in fact, that after Obama secured the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senator, Obama stopped by Meeks’ church for “Wednesday-night Bible study”. Meeks recalls he was a priority for Obama: “The night after the election, he was the hottest thing going from Galesburg to Rockford. He did all the TV shows, and all the morning news, but his last stop at night was for church. He came by to say thank you, and he came by for prayer.”

Obama himself has described Meeks as an adviser whom he seeks out for spiritual counsel. What are some of Meeks’s spiritual lessons? One of his fiery sermons included this rant: “We don’t have slave masters, we got mayors. But they are still the same white people who are presiding over systems where black people are not able to be educated. You got some preachers that are house n——. You got some elected officials that are house n——. Rather than them try and break this up, they’re gonna fight you to protect that white man.” He also believes that homosexuality is something than can be spread, and that it’s Jews doing the spreading. He has accused “Hollywood Jews” of bringing us Brokeback Mountain. He has referred to homosexuality as “an evil sickness” and hosts a Halloween “Fright Night” to scare people away from being gay.

The racist, angry, conspiracy-laden language used by Meeks is reminiscent of Pastor Wright’s. Why does Obama seek out such problematic men to be his spiritual advisors?

The answer can only go two ways.

Either Obama agrees with Meeks, and with Wright, or he is bound to them by political expediency. Both are influential in the world of Chicago politics, both provided an inroad to the black community which Barack Obama lacked. For a candidate of hope and change who tries to portray himself as above these sorts of political calculations, it becomes apparent that he’s a political opportunist of the highest order.

Hussein Obama doesn’t need to seek the Presidency…he, his lovely Michelle and all of his friends need narcotics. Legally prescribed ones, like Methaqualone. He, his wife and friends are unstable.

    So it’s all those honkie crackers out there keeping innercity kids from getting an education.

    Congressional Black Caucus vote on vouchers: for-zero, against-100 percent. Ditto the Hispanic Caucus. The Domocratic Party has long since abandoned innercity kids for the sake of power. The public school system is controlled by the Democratic Party and the Teachers Unions that supply campaign contributions and foot soldiers.

    It would be nice to run accross a Dem that has reality as even a sometimes companion.

    The great uniter (small initials) has done us a favor. Did any of you realize that so many in the black community believed and preached these things? He has exposed a nasty secret, and set back race relations to the pre-civil rights era.


Well, SAY something...
