Prejudice from the pulpit… again

Open your Bibles, please, to the second chapter of the Lamentations of Barack. It appears that Senator Obama has another unholy mess on his hands. This time from a Catholic priest who was a guest this past Sunday at the candidate’s church. From FOXNews:

Another Chicago minister is causing headaches for Barack Obama after he told the congregation at the Democratic candidate’s church on Sunday that Hillary Clinton felt entitled to the presidency because she’s white.

Michael Pfleger, a Catholic priest, issued a formal apology for his sermon Thursday after Obama put out a statement saying he was “deeply disappointed” by Pfleger’s remarks at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

“I regret the words I chose on Sunday. These words are inconsistent with Senator Obama’s life and message, and I am deeply sorry if they offended Senator Clinton or anyone else who saw them,” said Pfleger.

In it, Pfleger, who is white, mocked Clinton for getting choked up on camera before the New Hampshire primary in January.

Okay… now some excerpts from the actual sermon. Remember this is a white Catholic priest:

“When Hillary was crying … I really don’t believe it was put on. I really believe that she just always thought ‘This is mine. I’m Bill’s wife. I’m white. And this is mine’,” he said, shouting at times. “Then out of nowhere came, ‘Hey I’m Barack Obama’. And she said, ‘Oh damn! Where did you come from? I’m white! I’m entitled! There’s a black man stealing my show’!”

After that, he simulated Clinton crying and then said: “She wasn’t the only one crying. There was a whole lot of white people crying … I’m sorry. I don’t wanna get you in any more trouble. The live streaming just went out again.”

He also said at one point, “America has been raping people of color and America has to pay the price for the rape. “

So what’s the big deal as far as Obama is concerned? After all, he doesn’t have close ties to Pfleger the way he did to Jeremiah Wright…… RIGHT?

Well.. actually……

Pfleger is not a member of Obama’s church, but Trinity United confirmed he was a guest at the church Sunday.

Pfleger’s support of Obama is well known in Chicago; an Obama aide confirmed that Pfleger contributed to Obama’s state Senate campaign during his years in the Illinois legislature.

The aide told FOX News that when Obama was a state senator in 2000, he secured a $100,000 earmark for the ARK Community Center, a center attached to Pfleger’s St. Sabina church. The aide said the initiative was awarded to help keep at risk kids off the streets by giving them a place to play.

Pfleger was also once a member of the Catholics for Obama Committee, which is a voluntary advisory committee to the Obama campaign, the aide said. But the aide said Pfleger decided to step down a few weeks ago from this committee, though the campaign did not request the resignation.

So even though Pfleger is not quite as cozy with Obama as was Rev. Wright, his righteous fingerprints can still be seen all over the Senator’s career.

In addition to the disturbing pattern we see emerging here, we also get a revealing glimpse into Obama’s overall campaign strategy on race. We suddenly realize that the reason Obama has always “officially” taken the high road on racial issues is not because of some inherent color-blind integrity he possessed. Rather he never brought it up simply because HE didn’t have to. Why play the race card when others can do it FOR you? Can I hear an AMEN?

Here is the YouTube clip of a very full of himself Pfleger going at it…
