Barak Obama Exposes the Religious Right's Agenda on hijacking Religion!!!
Ok, tell me something i don't know, but it's good to hear it called out!
White House Hopeful 2008 Sen.Barack Obama delivered a speech on faith and politics at the United Church of Christ General Synod in Hartford, Connecticut last weekend. Obama accused the right-wing social conservatives of influencing Evangelicals to focus on social issues. The Conservative Voices on the right have use their status and faith, and their take faith and politics have led to anti-woman, anti-gay, and anti- science messages.
Here's a sample of Obama's speech
"Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked"
"Part of it's because of the so-called leaders of the Christian right, who've been all too eager to exploit what divides us"
Can I get a witness on here? Amen, boy you better speak that!
Obama also mentions their views are base on the book:"I don't know what Bible they're reading, but it doesn't jibe with my version." Yes, using a book like the bible or Jewish bible, or Qumran has hurt many people by denying their rights. Groups such as Women,African-Americans, Native-Americans, and currently LGBT people!
Here's a version of the bible these Conservative/ right-wing/ fundamentalists need to read:
