‘Barack, I Didn’t Do It for This’

  1. Huckabee has prevented transcripts of the sermon’s he gave as a baptist minister from being released. Does his refusal to open up his religious pronouncements to public scrutiny bar him from being president?

    Mitt Romney was an adult member of a Mormon church that taught being black was punishment by God and that only white people could be holy. Does his refusal to break off his association with them bar him from being president?

    Rudy Guilani is a member of a Catholic Church that has gone out of it’s way to protect sexual predators from being held to account for their actions. Does his refusal to break off his association with them bar him from being president?

    John McCain has attended fundraisers held by groups that want to overthrow the Constitution and replace it with religious theocracy. Does his refusal to break off his association with them bar him from being president?

    I’m growing sick and tired of the highly selective sense of moral outrage expressed by the right.

    Yes.

    No, because they have long since explicitly denounced the practice and belief, and did so long before his candidacy.

    Yes.

    No, because there is a vast difference between attending a fundraiser and being a member of a group led by a hatemonger for 20 years.

    I’ve long been sick of “for thee but not for me” attitudes excusing black racism and leftist racism. If Obama and Wright were white, and were making these statements to excuse his blaming blacks for all of his congregation’s problems, no one would buy this for a second.
