“God Damn America, U.S. to Blame for 9/11” If you think these are the words of Osama Bin Laden or any terrorist or terror apologist, think again. These words were said by Presidential candidate Barack Obama’s pastor. In the past, Barack Obama has claimed to not agree with everything that his pastor says, however, most patriotic Americans would get up and leave upon hearing such vitriol at the pulpit. Claiming to not agree with his pastor’s words while remaining a member of the church and FINANCIALLY supporting such hate speech is inexcusable.

The words of a spiritual leader are very powerful: In the Middle East, Imams at Friday prayers have ignited riots, in many parts of the world what the Pope says is law, and in our very own country a pastor came in second place for the Republican nomination over his pulpit views. By his silence we can only assume that he is signaling acquiescence. Not rising up against incitement at the pulpit is despicable, but from a presidential hopeful it is traitorous.

Thankfully the has finally chosen to cover this story and stopped giving Barack Obama a pass on everything. A presidential candidates must answer to this.

Barack Obama’s pastor says blacks should not sing “God Bless America” but “God damn America.” The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago’s south side, has a long history of what even Obama’s campaign aides concede is “inflammatory rhetoric,” including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own “terrorism.”

In a campaign appearance earlier this month, Sen. Obama said, “I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial.” He said Rev. Wright “is like an old uncle who says things I don’t always agree with,” telling a Jewish group that everyone has someone like that in their family.

Rev. Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, “The Audacity of Hope.”

An ABC News review of dozens of Rev. Wright’s sermons, offered for sale by the church, found repeated denunciations of the U.S. based on what he described as his reading of the Gospels and the treatment of black Americans.

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people,” he said in a 2003 sermon. “God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”
In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda’s attacks because of its own terrorism.

“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye,” Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he told his congregation. “
