I voted for Obama in my state's primaries. Should he win the nomination, I'm going to vote for him in November, too.
"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.
If truth is inflammatory, then I suppose this is inflammatory. However, I find nothing wrong with his sermons and, in fact, agree completely. I would only add to his litany the Native American genocide brought about by our government and in the name of "God". As she has been, and is now, America stands herself condemned. God does damn her. What's so difficult to understand? Look at what she has done, after all. I suggest that America needs to repent---in sackcloth and ashes, if necessary.
Hagee and the other guy get a pass because there are far too many people in this country who actually believe what they say.
