    150 years ago his peeps were being enslaved, oppressed, and murdered by Omani Arabs but none of that was the point anyway. In other words,  if the point were a golf ball it would still be sitting on it's tee.

    Yeah, can you imagine what they would be saying about Romney if he had sat through twenty years of some old-timey, fire-breathing Mormon preacher spewing the kind of paranoid, hate-filled rhetoric that Obama became familar with sitting though the sermons of the good Reverend Wright?

    Well, that's what he is trying to imply, by dredging up ancient history.  If that's the standard, let's start dredging up Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, the standard bearers of progressive thought and the millions the killed or oppressed in the name of liberal values.

    HEY!  I'm evolving...

    Talk about hate: "swine?"

    Sad for you that you have to hate and insult those who disagree with you.

    The context was a discussion about gay rights.  Be honest.  Accept the statement as your homophobic view or apologize and promise to be a better person.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Media's Mormon obsession continues: WaPost headlines 'Mormon Militia' Action 150 Years Ago : And that all reversed itself with the Dixiecrats who went on to become the base of the whacko wingnut party. You persued them and now they are a vital part of the wingnut party. Congrats, your Southern Strategy worked!!! You won over the racists and the bigots and the KKK.

    Actually it was the common sense, conservative and moderate members of the southern Democrat party that moved to the Republican side when they became disgusted with the sudden leftward lurch of their party.

    The real racists stayed put, confident in their ability to pass legislation that would create a permanent black underclass dependent upon big government (and the Democrat party that created it.) Judging by how unsuccessful these 'great society' programs have been in changing the status of most black folk it seems that this Democrat strategy has worked like a charm.

    Or, you can believe that a southern racist would suddenly change allegiance to a party that had just forced them to begin treating blacks as fully entitled citizens of our society.

    I'm guessing that this shouldn't be much of a problem for you.

    [QUOTE]In response to "Re: Media's Mormon obsession continues: WaPost headlines 'Mormon Militia' Action 150 Years Ago": The role of the minister is to teach the congregation in the word. The word Wright was teaching was black liberation theology. The few snippets we hear are only the tip of the iceberg. As far as the rest, I would condemn Romney if he sat in one of those churches, just as Obama did to Christianity in general, you know, those of us clinging bitterly to our bibles and our guns. Political issues are addressed from the pulpit all the time. There is no prohibition against that. I fully support rev. Wrights ability to address political issues. He just does so in a racist, black liberation theology way. I disagree with what he has said, politically and spiritually. He is a hate filled man. And Obama sat there for 20 years and soaked it up.
    Posted by skeeter20[/QUOTE]

    You seem to regard your somewhat loaded term of "black liberation theology" as somehow illegitimate or objectionable.  Why is that?  Why is it any less valid than any other christian denomination??  And why is mormonism any better?

    So, you "support" all "hate-filled racists" and their exposition on political matters?  That's rather telling.

    It's also a bit moronic for you to state that congregants agree with everything their pastors preach.  Again, even I don't believe that.   As such, there's been absolutely NO indication - by word or deed - that Obama believes or condones ANY of the rev's more contoversial statements.

    And none of this even addresses the notion that "liberation" could be (and likely is) a noble goal for any belief system.  In that sense, why shouldn't blacks want to be liberated by their faith...??

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Media's Mormon obsession continues: WaPost headlines 'Mormon Militia' Action 150 Years Ago : BWAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Geepers you're a freakin hoot!!! Wilfully ignorant is no way to go through life spanky. Thanks for the laughs though. Yep, everyone is wrong and only you know the 'Truth'. In American politics , the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti- African American racism and fears of lawlessness among Southern white voters and appealing to fears of growing federal power in social and economic matters (generally lumped under the concept of states' rights ). Though the " Solid South " had been a longtime Democratic Party stronghold due to the Democratic Party's defense of slavery prior to the American Civil War and segregation for a century thereafter, many white Southern Democrats stopped supporting the party following the civil rights plank of the Democratic campaign in 1948 (triggering the Dixiecrats ), the African-American Civil Rights Movement , the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 , and desegregation . The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon and Republican Senator Barry Goldwater [ 1 ] in the late 1960s. [ 2 ] The strategy was successful in some regards. It contributed to the electoral realignment of Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than ninety percent of black voters to the Democratic Party. As the twentieth century came to a close, the Republican Party began trying to appeal again to black voters, though with little success. [ 2 ] In 2005, Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman formally apologized for his party's use of the Southern Strategy in the previous century. [ 3 ]

    Wikipedia. I guess that proves it.

    For the record, Melman wasn't there so he doesn't really know what happened and Melman, as part of his role as an offical establishment Republican spokes-weasel, was just pandering to blacks in the misguided belief that it might be helpful.

    It wasn't.

    But yeah, let's refer to an ancient canard based on an off-hand comment made by a republican non-entity back in the 70s rather than creatively using the stuff lodged between your ears. If that's even possible.
