More Controversy over Obama, Trinity United Church of Christ

Barack Obama may not be off the hook just yet. Trinity United Church of Christ, whose former pastor Jeremiah Wright Jr. made comments that’s stirred up the campaign for the past couple weeks, recently revealed a number of perhaps even more disturbing details of their beliefs.

It turns out that the church preaches belief in an invisible, all-powerful ghost, believes this ghost to be locked in a battle against an evil conspiracy led by a former follower of the ghost. Among their other beliefs is that this invisible ghost fathered a son millenia ago, and then preordained that his son would be tortured and killed by crucifixion in order to save the nonmaterial Cartesian theatres of all humanity.

‘US of KKKA’ seems pretty tame next to that crazy shit!

    I suppose it’s up to TUCC how to treat their retired pastor, as long as its within the law. It would be interesting to hear Wright defend some of his more controversial comments that we’ve all heard in light of the fact that he seems to be doing pretty well for himself.

    Am I surprised that a popular minister in a large church gets a cushy retirement? Not at all. Look how the Vatican treats their guy! I’m also not really that surprised to find someone who has leveled various charges of deeply embedded racism in the country to end up living in a gated, wealthy community. I’m just glad I didn’t contribute to that church’s collection. 😉

    This is actually kind of funny. From Fox News:

    A two-week FOX News investigation, however, has uncovered where Wright will be spending a good deal of his time in retirement, and it is a far cry from the impoverished Chicago streets where the preacher led his ministry for 36 years.

    FOX News has uncovered documents that indicate Wright is about to move to a 10,340-square-foot, four-bedroom home in suburban Chicago, currently under construction in a gated community.

    While it is not uncommon for an accomplished clergyman to live in luxury, Wright’s retirement residence is raising some questions.

    I’m sure someone can explain the “context” for this.

    I have no problem with a pastor being treated well for years of hard work, but this seems a bit much – especially when you consider what the church could have done with a couple million.

    Public records of the sale show Trinity initially obtained a $10 million bank loan to purchase the property and build a new house on the land.

    But further investigation with tax and real estate attorneys showed that the church had actually secured a $1.6 million mortgage for the home purchase, and attached a $10 million line of credit, for reasons unspecified in the paperwork.
