The chief torturer of Sudan’s Islamist regime is soon to visit the U.S., igniting not a peep of concern from left-leaning church officials ostensibly very concerned about “torture.” Instead, a long list of prominent church honchos is instead demanding President Obama close Guantanamo Bay detention center because of its reputed history of “torture.” Their letter was organized by the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, which has received over $1 million from George Soros.
“Guantanamo Bay is a place where our government tortured prisoners, and it continues to be a place where many are detained indefinitely without trial,” the church activists wrote Obama. “We believe that our government has a moral obligation to close the prison at Guantanamo. We hope that you share this belief and that you will act expeditiously to close Guantanamo.”The letter was signed by old-line Protestant officials with groups like the National Council of Churches and United Methodist Board of Church and Society, with old leftist Catholic lobbies like Pax Christi and Sister Simone Campbell’s “Nuns on the Bus” NETWORK, plus the Islamic Society of North America of course.
Race-baiting false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie, who is pro-legalized abortion and wants taxpayer-funded abortions but hypocritically mentions Jesus’ concern for the “least of these” in many of his posts, demonstrates his usual hypocrisy in “Reactive mood”.
But is that a completely bad thing? As irritating as his shrill and false commentaries are, it shows how desperate and stubborn the Progressives and fake Christians are. Instead of realized that what people really objected to was pissing away almost $1,000,000,000,000 of their grandchildren’s money on Lefty political paybacks, the health care debacle with taxpayer-funded abortions, and so much more socialism, the Leftists are doubling down and insisting that what Obama needed to do was even more socialist actions.
Much of their analysis is correct but they ignore religious and racial factors that played into this election – not to mention the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United ruling which allowed unprecedented amounts of cash (some of it secret) to flood the airways with dishonest advertising.
The donation thing is comical. I don’t recall Chuck or the rest of the radical Left being concerned about the foreign money flowing to Obama. And anyone who knows the facts and not the pathetic Chamber of Commerce sound bites (Did they Dems really try that pathetic move?) realizes that both sides get big $$ from many groups — sometimes the same groups.
And what does he mean by dishonest advertising? The Democratic ads were some of the most vicious lies ever. And since when did the serial, unrepentant liar care about the truth? I never get tired of mocking him for pretending to care about that.
As noted, ‘much of the political response to the crisis has been reactive, fearful and off the mark” in this election cycle but that fear was fueled by well funded political machines that took advantage of racial animosity (illustrated so clearly by the Tea Party) and the natural fear that changes always brings.
Ah, the race card. Chuck is usually busy playing that against black pastors (that is, until he realizes they are black, then he makes up a new story).
Hey Chuck & Co.: Did you support Marco Rubio in Florida? How about the blacks that won? If not, does that mean you are racist? Did you support all the Republican women running? If not, does that prove you are misogynistic?
Do you oppose taxpayer-funded abortions, which will increase the already-too-high ratio of black abortions to those of whites (currently 3-to-1, but that isn’t high enough for Chuck).
Keep playing the race card, Lefties. We love to hear that concession speech. We’re looking forward to picking up a few dozen more House and Senate seats in 2012.
Speaking of fear, I think it is pretty obvious who is afraid.
