Wow — Obama’s former pastor says “church was not their thing” — plus lots more!

Wow.  Just wow.  Am I surprised?  Not that it was said, but that this has finally come out.  I wonder how the UCC spokespeople like race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie will try to spin this?

See Rev. Jeremiah Wright Speaks Out About Obama, Politics & More and listen to the audio yourself.  This is just the tip of the iceberg.  Now I can see why Chuck & Co. have not been playing the religion card on Romney.  They are working overtime to keep religion out of it.

Wright also made some intriguing claims about the Obama family and its purported lack of interest in attending church. Since assuming office, the president has consistently faced criticism over his infrequent church attendance. According to Wright, this is par for the course.

“Church is not their thing. It was never their thing,” Wright says of Barack and Michelle Obama. “She was not the kind of black woman whose momma made her go to church, made her go to Sunday school…so the church was not an integral part of their lives before they got married — after they got married.”

After Wright made these comments, Klein said, “But the church was an integral part of his politics…because he needed that base.” Wright agreed with this statement, at one point saying “correct.”
