Racist, Divisive Prayer at Obama Inauguration Draws Controversy

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

Obama brought in another of his favorite radical Black preachers to give the closing prayer for his $170 million inauguration (most of which will be paid for by you, the taxpayer). Rev. Joseph Lowery shamefully concluded his activist speech-prayer with the following racially divisive comments:
Lord,[...]we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around -- (laughter) -- when yellow will be mellow -- (laughter) -- when the red man can get ahead, man -- (laughter) -- and when white will embrace what is right.
Rev. Lowery's clever rhyming has sparked off another fire-storm of controversy in likes of the earlier one surrounding Obama's support of another radical Black preacher Jeremiah Wright (with his "God @%$# America!" comments. It will again be hard for Obama to deny his sympathies with the hate-speech rhetoric of some of the more extreme in the Black community, but there is no doubt that he (and his media) will.

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be ashamed of his former partner Rev. Lowery and Obama for this hateful, divisive prayer just at the moment when our nation claims to have achieved a great victory in racial tolerance. Dr. King prayed for a day when all Americans "will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Rev. Lowery's prayer put us back in the 60s, a society divided race against race, slinging hate-speech back and forth. Out society has moved on, why can the Reverends Wright, Lowery and others not? Are they fighting to bring it back? Do they not realize that it was the White vote that made the inauguration of the first Black man possible yesterday?

I just love laughing in the middle of prayers. It just seems like we ought to make more jokes when addressing deity. Not.

I don't think he was addressing Deity. He was giving a sermon on how evil America is, just like Jeremiah Wright. This is what Obama considers religion? I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
