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?<quoted text>
So, to provide context you reference a page that is full of quotes that are pulled out of context. But I can certainly see where all of this would frieghten white folks (1969 was a scarey time for some), and to think that the 2nd Amendment is color blind. Fortunately we have you to show the path of the True Christian, it's simply unimaginable that a personal relationship with Christ might actually produce a million different points of view.
I will repeat: what possible context could make those quotes acceptable and consistent with the message of the New Testament? Christ reserved his greatest anger for those who perverted God's message (money changers, Pharisees) and his greatest sorrow for those who would not accept his message (the young ruler). In MY OPINION, I would say Cone (and Wright) fit right into that first category. If you think to "shame" me for questioning that what was preached in that church was "true" Christianity - you are failing miserably. Christ did not preach the hatred and bigotry that the mission statement that Wright established for that church was based on. But fine, you want to somehow claim that an objective reading of the New Testament in total could come up such hatred - be my guest.
But this whole discussion can about from a question about non-Republican ministers. So let's leave that and go on to why so many of us thought Wright was a legitimate topic of discussion before Obama was elected. Republicans are constantly accused of racism - we can't possibly disagree with Obama on policy, it HAS to be because he is black. And yet, Obama sat in a church for 20 years listening to a minister that espouses Black Liberation Theology and somehow claims that he never heard anything approaching any of the following - he must have missed a lot of church:
So forget the "million different points of view" you claim as support for Cone and Wright's racist interpretation, I guess you really have no problem with Obama sitting in a church that preached that hate. Did you have a problem with the questions Romney was asked about the influence of the Mormon Church on his views and policies?
And there was a generous amount of political speech thrown in there - hey, IRS do you care, or are you too busy hassling people who "criticize the government"?
(What does the 2nd Amendment and colorblindness have to do with anything?)
