Reverend Wright and Barack Obama

Attending the same house of worship for twenty years says a lot about a person. It indicates loyalty and stability. If you look at the pastor, imam or rabbi, it is assumed that a lot of what was said from the pulpit might have influenced that person's thinking.
Barack Obama attended Reverend Wright's church for twenty years. He is only now denouncing Reverend Wright's statements about America and non African Americans. Either Obama is being disloyal to his spiritual mentor for political gain or he has sat for twenty years through bigoted and anti-American tirades without uttering a word of protest. It is entirely fitting that an aspirant to our nation's highest office should be subject to rigourous scrutiny. A person's bookshelves, his friends and his mentors offer deep insights into their outlook and way of thinking.
Barack Husein Obama has just denounced Reverend Wright after twenty years of loyalty. He is doing it for your vote. It's a disgrace. We need a person who will lead America according to beliefs of which he need not be ashamed. Obama is not that man.
