Once again you've revealed the deep dark tactics of the liberal socialist commie gay rainbow atheist plot to subvert America thru voter recruitment. But it goes far beyond simple voter recruitment and into the very voting booth by creating a dependency on health care, a dependency on free food, and all manner of subsidy and assistance for a majority of the population who willingly seek to live in poverty just so they can be eligible for free stuff..
Your continued efforts to educate the clueless should not go unrewarded, please accept this simple recognition as a token of our heartfelt gratitude.
Obviously my points are a direct hit, or you would actually respond with something intelligent instead of with a bunch of deflection, denials, and attacks. On second thought, no, you wouldn't.

And I also suggested you go to google books and read the preface to the book - that gives you all the context you need - sort of ignored that didn't you?
I will repeat: what possible context could make those quotes acceptable and consistent with the message of the New Testament?
Ah yes, context....

Religious Scholars Discuss Liberation Theology

Black Liberation Theology, in its Founder's Words

A Fiery Theology Under Fire
By MICHAEL POWELL
Published: May 4, 2008
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/04/weekinrevie...

...By the mid-1960s, the horns of Jericho seemed about to sound for the traditional black church in the United States. Martin Luther King Jr. was yielding to Malcolm X. Young black preachers embraced the Nation of Islam and black intellectuals sought warmth in the secular and Marxist-tinged fire of the black power movement.

As a young, black and decidedly liberal theologian, James H. Cone saw his faith imperiled.

“Christianity was seen as the white man’s religion,” he said.“I wanted to say:‘No! The Christian Gospel is not the white man’s religion. It is a religion of liberation, a religion that says God created all people to be free.’ But I realized that for black people to be free, they must first love their blackness.”

Dr. Cone, a founding father of black liberation theology, allowed himself a chuckle.“You might say we took our Christianity from Martin and our emphasis on blackness from Malcolm,” he said.

Black liberation theology was, in a sense, a brilliant flanking maneuver. For a black audience, its theology spoke to the centrality of the slave and segregation experience, arguing that God had a special place in his heart for the black oppressed. These theologians held that liberation should come on earth rather than in the hereafter, and demanded that black pastors speak as prophetic militants, critiquing the nation’s white-run social structures.

To which I would respond - what is the point of all those links - none of them either address or counter the inherent racism in Cone's books and preached by Wright. None of those links speak to or counter the quotes I cited, nor do those links give any evidence that those quotes are anything but accurate and that they exemplify the total message of Cone's books and standard Black Liberation Theology.

I read about Ayer's comments but couldn't decide whether or not to bring it up. Ayer's claims all living presidents should be tried for war crimes. Considering the fact he tried to kill police officers and soldiers, I think his a$$ should be rotting in jail - along with his wife and that cop killer turned Columbia Univ professor Kathy Boudin.
I debated whether or not to put the article in for the same reasons that you described but I obviously decided to run the story. I felt that everyone knowing Ayers strong loyalty to Obama would make a strong point about how his views of Obama have changed to the worse.
It also points out why Obama supporters continue to support him. They like the guy. Wow! One has to wonder.

You have explained that so well. Great post. I knew it, but I wanted someone else to jump in to show the libs that the conservatives are miles ahead of their thinking. Now! This is another thing that someone else needs to point out. Obamacare and the immigration bill will affect them in a negative way just like it will the rest of us. WHY don't they get that? They are going to be pushed to the back of the line, too. It is ASTOUNDING that they: 1. Don't care. They just want to be "right".
2. Are too brainwashed to believe it will be so ugly. 3. Think it WON'T affect them. Only the "hated" conservatives will be affected.
The liberals act as if all the conservatives will be locked up in concentration camps and that they will be in the elite class living the great life and making up all the rules just for themselves. In other words, they can't see anything happening to them until it is to late.

Would someone please tell me why we are sending American troops to Egypt to help control riots? Why are we helping the Muslim Brotherhood? What am I missing here?
Will some of you Liberals tell me why this decision was made and who made it?
Does this action by the Obama administration make sense to anybody?

I agree with why you decided to post it, I just wanted you to know why some people [or me anyway ;)] that are on the same side of the fence as you hadn't commented.

A "non liberal" can and will answer these two questions with only one definitive word.
1) Does obamacare solve our healthcare concerns?
2) Does the senate "gang of eight" immigration bill solve our immigration concerns?
1) Does obamacare solve our healthcare concerns? Depends on what your concerns are.\\ANSWER, My concern of losing health care coverage because of pre-existing has been SOLVED. My concern every time I am in any emergency room in the country is WHY do all those other folks get service for free, and I have to give them my credit card, SOLVED, everyone pays something. My concern that being self employed makes me a gravy train for big Health Insurance companies and there is nothing I can do, solved.

2. Seems like more fence, money for more guards is what you whackos have been after, that's what they want to do. And give people who have lived worked, raised children and paid taxes here a path to citizenship. Problem solved over time, something that has never happened before.
2) Does the senate "gang of eight" immigration bill solve our immigration concerns?

Now a question for you, is all you have is questions?? No answers??

For several posts today, while most of us were working you want to know why someone hasn't answered some question you ask. Don't bother to say what question, you ask so many its hard to know. I have given you my answer to your question. Several pages ago I ask you a couple of questions, NO answers. So take this time to answer just one. How has the EPA not saved our lakes and rivers to continue the supply of clean water. If you don't know just say so, we already know that.

A liberal cannot answer questions for two primary reasons. Number one, they just don't know the answer. Number two, their answer, right or wrong, does not serve their agenda. A liberal's main strategy is too keep their talking points alive and involved in controversy. It does not serve their voter recruitment efforts to solve any issue. Anyone who doesn't believe that only has to look at obamacare and this so called immigration bill. Niether one solves any problems whatsoever, only serving to keep the issue in the headlines, and make the clueless and uneducated out there believe that they are doing something for them. A liberal's agenda is the ultimate in hypocrisy.

+1 well stated, except that I would say it's 2 reasons: they're clueless and uneducated.

Ok-
While we have applauded incremental steps to clean up ballast water in the past, such as the Seaway’s requiring saltwater flushes of ocean-going vessels, we have steadfastly maintained that the goal must be zero discharges of non-native species in ballast water. The Environmental Protection Agency had an opportunity to make significant progress toward that goal. Instead it finalized regulations that limit, but do not eliminate, the number of organisms that can be dumped into our river.

It is disappointing that, almost 40 years after the enactment of the Clean Water Act, it took a lawsuit to force the EPA to act to protect the nation’s waterways at all and that, when it did act, it did so in such a weak manner. Significantly the EPA regulations set out:

&#9632; A weak standard. The EPA accepted the industry-endorsed International Maritime Organization standard, which from our perspective (and that of the state of California, with a standard 100 times more protective) represents the bare minimum for regulation and is not protective of the river, with no requirements on ships that only transit the lakes.

&#9632; A weak timeline. The EPA expects all ships to be compliant by 2018, but with no apparent recourse if ships do not meet that deadline.

nNo mechanism to strengthen standards or improve technology. Our concerns come straight from an industry spokesman, who stated,“EPA’s final rules now end the debate over ballast water regulation.”

No one should be lulled into a sense that our river and the economy that depends on it are safe with these standards. The next destructive invasive species may be only a ballast discharge away.

This is just one of MANY articles in regard to pre-existing conditions.
