I just got this inan email and thought it might be worth sending on to voters I think it should be looked into more. For what it may be worth: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Obama's Church Obama mentioned his church during his appearance with Oprah. It's the Trinity Church of Christ. I found this interesting. Please read and go to this church's web site (link below) and read what is written there. It is very alarming. Barack Obama is a member of this church and is running for President of the U.S. If you look at the first page of their web site, you will learn that this congregation has a non-negotiable commitment to Africa. No where is AMERICA even mentioned. Notice too, what color you will need to be if you should want to join Obama's church... B-L-A-C-K!!! This guy desires to rule over America while his loyalty is totally vested in a Black Africa! I cannot believe this has not been all over the TV and newspapers. This is why it is so important to pass this message along to all of our family & friends. To think that Obama has even the slightest chance in the run for the presidency is a cause for concern. Click on the link below: Click here: Trinity United Church of Christ Check the link below also. http://mediamatters.org/items/200702090009

I think media focus on what they want to focus. Why they never talk about Bohemian Grove? http://www.infowars.com/bg1.html Bush is member of Bohemian Grove and won the election. Now, after Bush "my way or highway", war and one man show, people are looking into someone to turn things 180 degree. I know Obama from different angle and I am looking at him as someone who grew up with cultural diversity. Obama is being criticized by black community to watch only white people interest. I think we have to start looking at things not as black or white, but as diverse community. His Church is the last thing I would think about. Just remember media are not innocent. All of my friends are working for media and I know how it works.

I am from Chicago and I know Trinity Church, even I am white(as seen). Whatever they say about church, I was inside. Trinity has also collage and is taking white students. They believe in hard work and high moral standards. Obama wants National health care. It is working fine in Europe. Some people who don't want it to happen are trying to find anything they can on Obama. I know his plan and I think he is the one who can offer a lot. He is not black and he is not white. I can not say more, but again, do not focus on what media people are creating. Some are working while having hangover....

Thank you so much for posting this very important information. I have to be honest I am not prejudiced towards blacks as I have 2 bi-racial great grandchildren BUT this article describes a church that is very obviously prejudiced against anyone who is NOT black. This information describing a potential president of the USA is IMO absolutely scary. Why this has not been given more attention by the media is very unfair to the voters.

what does a non-negotiable committment to Africa mean to you? Does it frighten you? I don't understand the reference as being "shocking"...can you explain why this would bother you? I am caucasian and support a number of charities here in the US and in Africa..I have a commitment to them all..I am not a scarey person..I have no secret adgenda...I have read and attended many churches whose charters are extremely scarey..yet are very accepted by many members...I am not trying to challenge you...only trying to understand why that particular line scares you so much. I have heard from many caucasian people who have attended this church...they don't understand the issue either...There are many churches that are extremely racist the other way...and attended by celebs and politicians alike...no one questions them!! I realize that this man is running for president..the current president of the US is the second scariest man in the world...his vice president being the 1st, we will soon be done with his "reign" but the world will forever be changed in a negative way because of him. A person's religion should be totally personal...the church isn't running...and shouldn't be a factor...My church is a great one...but if I am making decisions in my life they don't come from the church..they come from my relationship to my higher power and my intelligence. Do most people feel that they would bow to their church in a decision making process? I find that interesting. Thanks for your time!

Hi Lakota, I think it's a good time to bring this church back up. This is what rally convinced me that Senator Obama isn't the black man we need right now for our president. I saw that web page and it scared me. Now it's drastically changed. I can't copy and paste or I'd give you the link. They do still have a little picture of Africa at the bottom of it though. It's more than clear they want to distance themselves from Rev. Wrong. The black man I hope to be able to elect for our president in 2012 is named Bob Parks. Currently he's running for representative of Mass. He has a blog called Black & Right and also is the founder of NMAtv.

Not to put anyone down for the feelings this article invokes, but in all honesty it is not totally truthful....While I am not an Obama fan and have another candidate I am looking at, if you check out SNOPES.COM and look for this article it will clarify some of the myths that this article portrays. A person is entitled to their beliefs and religious convictions, but I believe the people of the United States are far too sophisticated to accept a candidate that would totally give them a government like the one they have had for the past 8 years. For my way of thinking, I would like to see someone in that position of great power who has experience and who knows how to be fiscally responsible and who will put the working people of the US first and not last! Someone who will generate jobs and housing, support good education and lower the educational costs, someone who will see that good health coverage for the average working family is brought about and someone who won't run the country into more and deeper debt. This latest ploy by Mr. Bush and his "2nd" in command is only lining the pockets of those who really do not need assistance, and guess where he is borrowing the money for this refund program? CHINA can you believe that! He's going into deeper debt before he leaves office and really, will $300 do people in desperate straits any good? Its a mere piece of sand on a very large shoreline... I hope for all of our sakes that whoever wins the position of President in this election is a thoughtful and frufal human being and is a fiercely proud American first and not in business for themselves or their friends.

You do a really good job of keeping us updated and as a Canadian I appreciate it because we sometimes miss news like this. After seeing your clip you are right...it is reason for concern. The last thing your country needs is another biased president who runs the country on HIS terms rather than listening to the voice of the people. Not good. Raia

This is an email that I got concerning this subject: Who is Barack Hussein Obama? 1. - U.S. presidential candidate 2. - Born in Honolulu, Hawaii Father: Barack Hussein Obama Sr. a black Muslim from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya; Mother: Ann Dunham, a white atheist from Wichita, Kansas. Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii. When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. Father: Returned to Kenya. Mother: Married Lolo Soetoro, a radical Muslim from Indonesia. 3. - When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia. 4. - Obama attended a Muslim school in Jakarta. He also spent two years in a Catholic school. 5. - Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He is quick to point out that, "He was once a Muslim, but that he also attended Catholic school". 6. - Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it appear that Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father and that this influence was temporary. In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and neve again had any direct influence over his son's education. 7. - Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam. 8. - Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta. Wahabism is the radical teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the Western World. Since it is politically expedient to be a Christian when seeking Major public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background. Let us all remain alert concerning Obama's presidential candidacy. Something to ponder: The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level!

Dear Lakota12 When an election takes place you will be told, read, hear and be inundated with many different viewpoints which may take a grain of a fact and turn it into a malestrom. PLEASE do not let a persons religious beliefs or a persons ethnic origin colour your intelligence. Base your views on each and every candidate, delve ino their working careers and how they have conducted their business practices during their career up to tis time when they have sumitted themselves up to the public for scrutiny. Look to the character of the man or woman, don't take everything you see or read in the media hype as gospel, give each candidate the privilege of being judged on their performance over the years bringing them to this point. POLITICS is a very lucrative game and some people cheat. In this instance someone has decided to muddy the waters. YOU are a voter with the power to vote for whom you please, so use the intelligence I believe you have to ferret out the truth of these candidates and then make your very own decision. A persons private religious beliefs and his or her private life only comes to the forefront in how they conduct themselves and the people he or she serves. It is how they use the position they hold in service to the public that remains the uppermost of importantance. A persons ethnic origin has no place in judging the measure of a person, we are all from some ethnic origin. By the way, I am white and female, don't hold a degree nor do I hold any public office and I am by all standards financially poor, so I have no axe to grind nor political affiliation with any party therefore I admit to being unbiased.

Oh I dont take all of this to heart but its scary to think that some one might get to the white house and turn the tables on the American people . ya know all politicains lie to some extent. and then they can promice us every thing but when they get in to power they get very stupid advisers. SO many companys have puit lots of money into that person adn what favors back! We need a leader that thinks and does for the people not the money mongers that want things done this way and that way. Yup I am a voter and even now still I have no idea who I will vote for. For it probably never even count in the end!

Thank you so much for the information! When you consider that he just won the Iowa primary, therefore making him one step closer to the Democratic nomination, this is really scary stuff! I only hope that this election is not turned into a three ring circus by voting either for a woman or a black American. The decision of who should be president of our country SHOULD NOT be based on either race or gender!

should go to the honest person,and that even might not be anyone that is in the running! We need someone in there that will be fore the american people not on ethat wants to line their pockets with the sale of every thing america has and bring back our factories and put our people back to work! We have sold so much of out technology that it is pitiful am only hoping with all the new stuff coming out that it will stay here in america for american citizens to work on. I really dont trust any one that is running right now first they are on one side of the fence and then the other all wishy washy
