I was caught in a moment because you know when you sign in it asks for ‘file of the word’ to ‘prove you’re a person – not spam script’.

Mine said: love

that’s all I wanted to share then….is

*love*

I sat in many classes in the University and heard my professors say many a controversal thing, but I was never held accountable for them in fact… I was rewarded for how well I coul remember and recite them

The whole idea behind church is the idea of free will. You have the right to accept or reject any statement

The man has a big mouth and conveys the sentiments of a foolish egocentric. He is also a spouter of cant, devisive preaching and shows an abject lack of sensitivity.

And he calls himself a Christian??

Obama has been besmirched by this foolish reactionary, and I think the Rev. should hang his head in shame!

Any reasonable person can see this. Those who are not familiar with Black churches don’t know many pastors say crazy things when they get caught up in the moment. Balance is needed in everything and I think Obama and others know how to balance what is said across a pulpit. White churches are a lot different – what is said is mostly scripted and carefully stated. These pastors do not ad lib per say. Obama is electable; some just don’t want to let their mind and heart believe it.

Obama didn’t find anything offensive and defended the preacher until it was an obvious political liability.

Shall I go on…?? Wake up Americans..this isnt about race or religion..this is about electing the person who will hold the most powerful position in this world !! I would rather vote Hilary or even Mccain than to Vote for Obama and sleep with the enemies of this great nation!!

The world is watching and they are evaluating our intelligence. VOTE SMART and restore the American dream in the minds of millions of people in the world. Our economy and image are equally shattered now.

Yea, Obama I’m sure supports his belief. Has he ever came out and said what his changes will be? Why should we trust him? We don’t know anything about him. WAKE UP AMERICA!

I should like to point out that McCain also was not born in the USA. So each candidate, for different reasons, represents a challenge to a requirement that needs to be reconsidered anyway.
