White House won’t condemn Easter
sermon charging ‘religious right’
with racism

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/1/2013 1:38:10 PM

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney walked a line between refusing to criticize the pastor who charged the “religious right” with racism while distancing President Obama from the remarks by emphasizing that the Obama family only attended the church service due to tradition. “I wasn’t there and I have not spoken with the president,” Carney told reporters. “I know that he enjoys going to easter services with his family. “In keeping with the tradition that dates back many presidencies, he went right across the park here to St. John’s Episcopal Church and attended services there.”

Comments:
Of course not! You know for certain if that situation was reversed 0bama would have been at the podium inserting himself into the fray immediately.

The Episcopal Church has become a Leftist political organ - losing members and credence in the process. My wife and I left the Episcopal Church years ago and never regretted it.

Who is he kidding, as that Rev. Leon was included in Obama´s inauguration ceremony two months ago. Obviously Leon inserted that political straw man loaded paragraph concerning blacks, women, and immigrants in the middle of his sermon because he knew that´s what Obama wanted him to say!

carney´s response was such a predictable lie. Any topic, or story that is a potential embarrassment to obama gets the stock, "I´m not familiar with that story, or I haven´t spoken to the president about it." Of course, no one in the press "corpse" has the guts to follow up with a question the next day.

Decent parents, just DECENT God-fearing parents would be concerned that their girls were subjected to such hate speech on Easter Sunday from the pulpit. However, for the Obama girls, they have been raised on this talk so no big deal.

Wait ... wait a little longer until Obamacare really kicks in and grabs hold with its tentacles.

Only then will the lo-fos and the media have to confront what the liar-in-chief has done to all of us.

No republicans voted for Obamacare ... and Bush´s hands are not on it.

This one is owned by the arriviste in the white house

Jay Carney wasn´t there....Reminds one of the old poem:

I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

Right-wing pundits will never like a Democratic President. They don´t get paid to do that. Once again a right-wing pundit is trying to score points.
The President has neither the time nor the need to comment on evrything under the sun.

Carney´s response is worse than the sermon!

1. Obama only went to Easter services because other presidents have done so? (Why no capital "E" on Easter in the intro above?)

2. Sounds like Obama went to that particular church because it´s "right across the park."

#8, I realize golf takes up a lot of Obama´s time, and those 10:30-110am start of the work day doesn´t help much either.
That jet-setting consumes a lot of time too, then there are the parties and vacations.
5 years in, he hasn´t yet healed the planet or made the tides recede.
He HAS shown that he is one of the most racist politicians of all time, and the stink is so bad that others around him pick it up too.
Now, will that Church lose its tax exempt status?
WHO would attend a Church like that?

America’s highly transparent (giggle, chortle, guffaw) White House has become more like Hogan’s Heroes every day with Low-Information Spokesmute Jay Carney as our very own Sergeant Schultz:

“I see nothing. I hear nothing. I know nothing. In fact I was not even in the vicinity of anything at all.”

I see the trolls are out again, showing us their pants waist size is greater than their IQ with responses that make no sense at all.

As to the article when you have a derisive racist president, why would he be bothered by a sermon like that, in fact I would go as far to say, he probably sent the guy (anybody teaching like that doesn´t deserve title of pastor) giving the message cliff notes to use to make sure everyone would get zero´s message.

#1 pretty well summed up the current state of the Episcopal Church. Go to any service and 90% of the congregation is white-haired and parents of baby-boomers. I was a "cradle Episcopalian" but haven´t attended in years. The PC crowd has destroyed it.

Luis Leon preached from the same "racial creed book" as "the reverends" Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, et al. The POTUS is a devout believer in that same race baiting doctrine. To condemn the words of Luis Leon would be condemning himself.

I´m an Episcopal and a Republican for more than 50 years - our church is tolerant of everyone and most are Republicans. I found the pastor´s comments offensive and painted with an unearned broad brush. So I wrote him, and the head of the Episcopal Church of the U.S. He needs to get out of D.C. and see what others are like. Horribly divisive this man is.

First, former Episcopalians, knock it off with the anti-E comments. How can your values prevail if you skedaddle? Next, everybody, don´t knock us for the liturgy which several centuries ago was written so that church members would know how to read when few could. Sermons are at the discretion of the speaker and well, how many teachers can you quote from memory? In their defense, as a journalist, I will say the Gospel writers coulda given us a few more details but I´m hardly the person to order Matt, Mark Luke & John to rewrites. Faith, people. Our Lord has a sense of humor. Blessed Easter!

Obama is a little bit racist its true, but Im a little bit, too.
Everyone´s a little bit racist; it´s human nature to make judgments based on color. After all, bigotry is not exclusively white.
Instead of denying bigotry, we should proudly own our racism, thereby proactively neutralizing any statement made by pinheads such as the sharia Reverend mentioned in this article.
Besides, think of how much fun it would be watching libs heads explode!!!

Let´s pretend that it wasn´t Obama in that Church but George W. Bush. And the same preacher served up the same bile but in reverse and ranted about radical left wing pastors who coddle people like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn and other lefty parasites, would some still believe..

"The President has neither the time nor the need to comment on evrything under the sun."

Bush would hardly have had time to get out of his seat before the lame stream media and left wing pundits pounced. His press secretary would have been inundated with reporter, after agenda driven reporter, demanding Bush disavow the clown preacher´s remarks.

Obama sat there, smiled at the nice preacher and Jay Carney said, "nothing to see here, let´s move on," because this IS OBAMA´S RELIGION. This is exactly what he believes and worships. But, it´s Zero, so, what difference, at this point, does it make?

We can´t blame Obama for the pastor´s remarks, not directly anyway. Of course if Obama were not Obama that pathetic Episcopal priest would perhaps not been inspired to suck up to him by injecting politics into the Easter sermon. The problem here is the priest and the failure to acknowledge any boundary between the sacred and the profane. I am not an Episcopalian, but from what I read I gather that this denomination has at least in some circles all but abolished such a distinction and seems to have divinized the world and begun to practice idolatry towards the schemes and works of Man.

The priest´s flagrantly partisan remarks in the Easter sermon, if they are accurately reported, are a scandal and a disgrace. One wonders if such talk might not jeopardize tax exempt status under another adminsitration.

Oh come on. Who do they think they are fooling? As has been pointed out multitudinous times, Obama and his family cannot go ANYWHERE without the Secret Service first doing a security sweep.

It was known days, if not weeks, ahead of time that he and his family would be attending services this day. It was NO SURPRISE. A secret, perhaps, but the one doing the sermon, well, I don´t know what to call him, certainly knew.

It not only was written for him, it may have actually been written BY him. At least that portion.

Regardless, the real truth of the matter is this: It had NO place in a church sermon, especially an Easter message, but not any message, ever.

Politics has no place in church. Want proof? Look what it did to Jesus, then ask, "What would Jesus do?".

I´m an Episcopalian and have gone to the same church for 40 years. I never hear this kind of talk from our priest and would leave if I did. My church is generally more liberal than I am but Luis´ remarks were beyond disgusting.

There are a lot of conservative Episcopalians; the liberals are just louder.

#33 - I realize you were speaking somewhat tongue in cheek, but there is a serious and important answer to your question.

Many Christians can answer quite a few, and all of them from from the inspired pages of the Holy Bible, which is what any man who calls himself a preacher of the Gospel of Christ should have been doing.

The apostle Paul admonishes in 2 Timothy 2:
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

And, in Galatians 1: 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

And, if the Bereans (Acts 17:
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.) searched the scriptures daily to make certain the miraculously inspired preaching of the apostle Paul was accurate - and they did - why should less be expected of Episcopalians, or any one of us with regard to any uninspired preacher today?

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Last week, President Obama directed his Homeland Security Department to examine its current deportation practices -- "to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely, within the confines of the law," the White House announced on March 13. But with immigration reform stalled in Congress, what more can Obama do? "I think he´s going to wait until August," said Telemundo anchor and immigration-reform advocate José Díaz-Balart. And if Congress doesn´t act on immigration reform by then, "I wouldn´t be surprised if he starts making some very controversial executive orders to mitigate the pain of millions of people who face deportation," Díaz-Balart told

Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Friday that the administration still believes there is a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine as Russian troops mobilized along the country’s entire eastern border. CBS News reported on Friday that a mass mobilization of Russian forces was taking place on Ukraine’s eastern border with at least twice as many troops as the 20,000 number originally reported. The defense “exercise” included tanks and tactical aircraft and appeared to show signs of a logistical buildup required for a sustained operation. Obama on Thursday announced additional sanctions against Kremlin officials and oligarchs

(If someone has asked, please send link for me to stand corrected.) Now that Michelle Obama’s mother has caused a disruption on the latest exotic vacation for the first lady, perhaps it is time for some answers about why Marian Robinson is even on the trip to China. Worse, why is she appearing in official photographs with Chinese officials? Drudge is reporting in big bold lead letters that Marian Robinson is barking

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the

Testing is only in the early stages at this point, but the White House internal technology team and communications agency are testing Android devices from the two South Korean phone makers, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cites an unnamed source. The implementation of Samsung or LG phones is still months away, but this is the first indication that the White House is preparing to move away from using BlackBerry.

NBC News political director and chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd publicly criticized CNN this week for its relentless use of the "breaking news" chyron on stories related to missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370. "Another day of ´breaking news´ based on finding nothing or in other words, ´not breaking news,´" Todd, who also hosts MSNBC´s "Daily Rundown," wrote on Twitter on Friday morning. "I know it may look like I am casting stones while potentially living in a glass house. But the mistakes of one news org hurts ALL of us," he wrote. "Then it becomes ´the media´ is abusing ´breaking news´

Are you are among the uninitiated lumpenproletariat who believe the decline of the Roman Empire was attributable to a multitude of factors? Do you still naively assume that rampant immorality, political corruption, inability to effectuate regime change without violence and bloodletting, failure to curb runaway inflation, the complete over extension of military resources and the eventual drought of plunder were among the reasons for the fall of Rome? Then you obviously have not read the latest NASA report on how the benighted empire could have avoided collapse if only it had adhered to the tenets of Karl Marx. Apparently, Rome

In a question and answer session at Stanford Center at Peking University in Beijing, China, First Lady Michelle Obama said that sometimes one needs to do things she´s uncomfortable with. She made the comments in response to a question about studying abroad. (Snip) The first lady responded, "Excellent. And one thing that you pointed out that I think it’s important to consider is not letting fear be your guide. Andthat’s oftentimes what holds many young people back from doing fabulous things.

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Quoting unnamed administration officials, CNN host Jake Tapper revealed that the White House is “concerned” that Russia could invade South and East Ukraine “possibly as soon as this weekend.” He said that, in spite of Russia’s assurances that the large numbers of troops and military equipment amassed along the Ukrainian border are there merely for training exercises, the White House believes that Moscow could be planning a broader incursion into Ukraine. “There is now real apprehension that Vladimir Putin could push even further into Ukraine, perhaps as soon as this weekend,” Tapper said. He quoted anonymous administration officials who are “concerned”

One of four gubernatorial candidates introduced to California Republicans recently is a registered sex offender who spent more than a decade in state prison, convicted of crimes including voluntary manslaughter and assault with intent to commit rape. (Snip) Champ, a little-known political neophyte from the Fresno County community of Tollhouse, did not directly mention his criminal past during his speech but said, "In my life, I´ve been held accountable because of my stupidity. I do not want anyone else to be enslaved because of their lack of knowledge." Champ´s rap sheet is lengthy. Court records show that in 1992,

Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are pressing the Department of Justice for more information about contact government lawyers reportedly made with Lois Lerner, the former IRS employee at the center of the scandal over the IRS’s targeting of tea party groups for special scrutiny. The fresh push from committee chairman Darrell Issa of California and committee member Jim Jordan of Ohio is a signal the GOP will continue to pursue possible contempt charges against Ms. Lerner after she invoked the fifth amendment right against self-incrimination on two occasions when called before the committee. “For over eight
