I find it amusing that many conservatives are trying to posit a conservative attitude onto Barack Obama for his pastor’s outspoken positions and the trembling he induces in white America. Time and time again, I hear liberals criticized for picking and choosing the beliefs of their chosen faith. It seems convenient to level this criticism wherever it can be aimed, but hold the presumptive Democratic nominee to Rev. Wright’s views as if he were McCain or somebody.
Get it straight, people. If Obama were a mindless Stepford disciple, he would probably be conservative. If he were a liberal, according to the critics, he would be a member of Chicago’s Trinity UCC in name only, right?
