Obama’s Former Church Linked To Racism

Church Doctrine Described as ‘Nazi Mentality’
By: R. Ogden
 
Oct. 4, 2009 - PRLog -- During the last presidential campaign, there was much coverage of Jeremiah Wright's anti¬American tirades.  However, the media never explained the basic doctrine of Obama's former church, which is based on Black Liberation Theology (BLT).  Much of the public believes that Obama belonged to a traditional church with a quirky, excitable and petulant minister.  BLT, however, is far from what most consider traditional Christianity, which is based on humility and Christian charity. BLT is fundamentally based on black revolution “by any means necessary,” hatred of the white race, exaltation of the black race as the manifestation of God and calls for destruction of traditional “white” Christianity as well as  the destruction of “white” institutions, such as the Constitution and the establishment of a “theocracy.” Violence and lawlessness against whites is sanctioned.  The theology predicts a black messiah that will led the revolution against America and a global black revolution of non-white peoples against white society which “will be confronted as the Antichrist.”  The failure of the media to explain the fundamentally racist and seditious nature of this doctrine to the public may be one of the greatest failures of the news media in recent memory.  It means that Obama was never properly vetted by as a candidate for the presidency.

Barack Obama was a member of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago for twenty years.  His minister and self described spiritual adviser, Jeremiah Wright, explained in an interview by Sean Hannity that the doctrine of his ministry is based on BLT, which is based on books written by James H. Cone beginning in 1969, such as Black Theology and Black Power (1969), A Black Theology of Liberation (1970) and God of the Oppressed (1975). These books are readily available from book retailers.

Many will find the theology described in these books to be shocking and disturbing. The Doctrine can be described as a black identity religion that holds the black race to be superior or god-like and the white race to be the ultimate evil (satanic).  Cone wrote in his own words in the preface of the book that “A Black Theology of Liberation has often been rejected as racism in reverse by many whites, particularly theologians” and also that “Father Andrew M. Greeley referred to my perspective on black theology as a “Nazi mentality, a theology filled with hatred for white people and the assumption of a moral superiority of black over white.”  Andrew M. Greeley is a well-known Catholic sociologist and popular author.

The racism of BLT is similar to a reverse version of a theology developed by the Nazis, ironically called “Positives Christentum” (Positive Christianity).  The Nazi “Christian Identity” movement still uses a similar doctrine in the United States. In the Nazi doctrine the Aryan race is the manifestation of God and the Jewish/non-white races are the ultimate evil.  Jesus is a revolutionary, fighting to liberate the Aryan race from oppression by non-Aryans.

The basic concept of BLT is the reverse of the theology of the Christian Identity movement. The black race is equated to God and the black Christ is a revolutionary, who is fighting for black (non-white) liberation from the white race.  The black Christ arises from the black revolution.  BLT is similar to the basic concepts of the theology of the Nation of Islam, on which it is largely based.  BLT is not a branch of the similarly-named, more Marxist-oriented Liberation Theology as many people assume.  Louis Farrakhan, the head of the Nation of Islam, implied that Obama is the black Messiah in a public speech in February of 2008.

BLT predicts the appearance of a black Christ and the formation of a kingdom on Earth, which will be a “historical event.” The kingdom is the result of the black revolution in America. Cone says that whites will “fail to see the significance of the phenomenon” and that not all will recognize the “incarnate One,” meaning the black Christ, “who came to liberate the World.”  With regard to the kingdom, Cone writes further that “Whites do not recognize what is happening, and they are thus unable to deal with it.”

Cone teaches that “While it is true that blacks do hate whites, black hatred is not racism.”  He also writes that all whites are collectively guilty of historic crimes suffered by blacks from slavery as well as other causes.  White liberals (Cone calls them “do-gooders”) are said to be considered no better than the famous racist George Wallace, the former Governor of Alabama, and that there will be no redemption for most of them.  Cone writes that “…the true prophet of gospel of God must become both unchristian and unpatriotic.” and also that Black Theology must...get down to the real issues at hand …cutting throats…”

Violence, such as firebombing and burning buildings of whites, is justified. Cone asserts that “the black revolution is the work of Christ” and that “violence may be the black man's expression, sometimes the only possible expression, of Christian love to the white oppressor.”  Cone prophesies a final confrontation with white society. “With the assurance that God is on our side, we can begin to make ready for the inevitable-the decisive encounter between black and white existence .... We will not let whitey cool this one with his pious love ethic but will seek to enhance our hostility, bringing it to its full manifestation.”

Cone considered the black race to be the chosen people and any other Christian doctrine is considered apostate. To quote Cone again, “God's Word of reconciliation means that we can only be justified by becoming black... It is this fact that makes all white churches anti-Christian in their essence. To be Christian is to be one of those whom God has chosen.  God has chosen black people!”  Cone explains that one can become black by identifying with black people to the point of being ready to sacrifice one's life for the black cause and that few would be willing to make that commitment and ultimately enter the “kingdom.”

Obama belonged to a church, whose minister taught this racist, bigoted doctrine for twenty years, yet he campaigned on healing the racial sins of America.  It is reasonable to assume that he believes in this hateful ideology, even if he does not show it publicly.  At this point, no one has openly questioned him about what he was taught at his church and what he really believes and much of the public thinks that he believes in a more traditional Christianity, which is considered apostate by adherents of BLT and was apparently never taught at Trinity United Church of Christ by Jeremiah Wright.
