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:

How can Obama, who attend a seperatist and occultic church, that doesn't believe in the total diety of Jesus come out and try to explain ANYTHING about faith or religious right or left issues? He may attack christian conservatism, but he is yet supporting the democratic left religious, liberal causes that actually violate the what is he trying to accomplish. And I still yet have to see him attend one church service...I guess he is a honorary member of Trinity UCC?

@Captain: As i have said time and time again, pushing people to discuss their personal religious beliefs violates the U.S Constitution! I really can care less what a Democrat or Republican's personal religious beliefs are. Americans should only be concern about what a white house hopeful can do strengthen our country, and to make every american has equal civil liberties.

Obama has stated he is a Christian, and if he wasn't he wouldn't be a issue for me, because religion is personal. NOT a MUST to be President, or any other public office.

What is it with you and OBAMA anyway? I need details.....

There is nothing wrong with are civil liberties. If anything, the democratic hopefuls in 2008 is a sad choice America is supporting...more harm will come than good.
