Via Hugh Hewitt we find at this adult-themed site as Hugh puts it, that Obama is on the verge of huge problems with another 'reverend' by the name of James Meeks, who is already well-known in Illinois as a state senator with a flair for outrageous statements, such as:
- He said, "we don't have slave masters. We got mayors. But they still the same white people who are presiding over systems where black people are not able, or to be educated."
- He is alleged to have blamed 'Hollywood Jews' for Brokeback Mountain.
- His church held a "Halloween fright night" which "consigned to the flames of hell two mincing young men wearing body glitter who were supposed to be homosexuals."
As with the 'Reverend' Wright, one has to wonder what Obama means by 'unity' and 'racial healing' when he forges close political ties with a bigot like Meeks. Either Obama is willing to put political gain ahead of his values, or Meeks views do not conflict with Obama's.
It is hard to think of any other explanation for this.
