Meeks And “The World As It Should Be”

Stanley Kurtz exposes Obama’s segregationist views – in his own words:

“What is the role of the church? Obama sees the black church as the key to his plan for collective social and political action: ‘Obama…spoke of the need to mobilize and organize the economic power and moral fervor of black churches. He also argued that as a state senator he might help bring this about faster than as a community organizer or civil rights lawyer.’ Says Obama, ‘We have some wonderful preachers in town – preachers who continue to inspire me – preachers who are magnificent at articulating a vision of the world as it should be.’ Obama continues, “But as soon as church lets out, the energy dissipates. We must find ways to channel all this energy into community building.’ Obama seems to be holding up people like Wright, Pfleger, and James Meeks (who he has listed as his key religious allies) as positive models for the wider black church – in both their rhetoric, and in their willingness to play a direct political role. If anything, Obama would like to see the political visions of Wright and Pfleger given greater weight and substance by connecting them to secular leftist political networks like Acorn.”
