Yet another crazy-ass pastor spouting off divisiveness

Are these pastors so used to believing their god forgives everything that they think everyone will? Do they think they can say anything they want and then say...oh, I'm sorry and everyone will be like Jesus and forgive them? TOO LATE. Once the words are out there, no magic "I'm sorry" words can erase what has already been said. You can think your Jesus will forgive you, but many American voters may not. It sure seems as if the clergy at Obama's church doesn't want him to win in November. It seems to me that Obama needs to make a clean break from this church which seems to have become a real liability.

This has been the most fanatically-filled election ever.



Obama distances himself from another clergyman

Obama said he was "deeply disappointed" by Pfleger's comments.

"As I have traveled this country, I've been impressed not by what divides us, but by all that that unites us," he said in a statement. "That is why 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."

Pfleger, the white pastor of predominantly black Saint Sabina Roman Catholic Church on the city's Southwest side, said he regretted his choice of words.

"These words are inconsistent with Senator Obama's life and message and I am deeply sorry if they offended Senator Clinton or anyone else who saw them," Pfleger said.

Clinton's campaign denounced Pfleger's comments.

"Divisive and hateful language like that is totally counterproductive in our efforts to bring our party together and have no place at the pulpit or in our politics," the campaign said in a statement. "We are disappointed that Senator Obama didn't specifically reject Father's Pfleger's despicable comments about Senator Clinton, and assume he will do so."

Hey travdawg! Glad you came by! I checked out that site...it almost seems satirical! But it's real...

Fulfilling God’s mission through your Gospel Magic;

Gospel "magic"...the Bible is full of magic trickery...turning water into wine, rivers turning into blood, parting of the waters, raising people from dead...etc.


Following God’s command through your Chalk Drawings;

Well, the bible says to come as little children.


Rejoicing in God’s favor through your Ventriloquism & Storytelling;

Like the talking burning bush...Moses was tricked! And there is lots and lots of storytelling in the Bible.

Marveling at God’s Grace when children respond to His call through you Clowning

Equating God with clowning...too funny!

Revealing God’s glory through your Puppetry

That's what many believers think god is...a puppetmaster pulling strings of billions and billions of people alive and dead.

Expressing God's beauty through the art of Face Painting

Face paint?

Declaring God’s word through Drama & Juggling

Christians love to be dramatic...and juggling would probably wake up the boring services a bit.

Delighting in God’s way through your Balloon Artistry; . . .

"Balloon artistry?" WTF??

One big "Circus for Jeezus". Thanks Travdawg...that was quite amusing.

Quantum F, Yes, that is incredibly stupid, but too incredibly real. That church is full of divisive dumbfucks who would send us back into the heated 60s, overlooking all the progress we have made over the past few decades when it comes to racism in this country. We still have a long way to go, but beating a dead horse and rowing the boat backwards is not very progressive.
