Barack Obama is facing his own version of Sophie's Choice. He is going to commit a constituency abortion in the coming days. But who will it be? The black evangelical church goers he continues to try to fool? Or the radical homosexual activist mafia who has thus far funded his presidential campaign? It's a situation of his own poor judgment and one that is likely to throw a major wrench into his efforts to win the Democratic nomination for President.
It didn't have to be this way...
A number of weeks ago Barack Obama began barnstorming black and mega churches, talking the very close talk to actual Christianity without actually ever admitting to any of it. His vapid remarks about his vague faith were enough to appease the hyped up masses. No mention of his own actual conversion to the Christianity of the scriptures, only a lot of references to his home church in Chicago, (where Dr. Jeremiah Wright will be as likely to drop the "f-word" as he will be to quote from a scriptural text,) his story of working with churches to achieve some community project funding, an "Amen to Rick Warren" for letting him share the gospel of solving AIDS by telling Africans to fornicate all the more - but using a small piece of plastic as their Savior, and of course advancing his crusade to extend the inner city genocide of black children all under the code of "choice."
Like I said, not a whole lot of Biblical Christianity wrapped into the stump speech.
His get out the "Gospel Vote" strategy is one way he plans to make headway against Hillary, who herself has been known on more than one occasion to fake - among other things - a "hallelujah" while being the only pasty worshiper in a church auditorium full of energy. If Obama can corner the market on black voters - then Hillary's chances begin to spiral and her otherwise flimsy persona just shreds to pieces.
Which is why this week took such an interesting turn…
Barack Obama invited Grammy winning gospel artist Pastor Donnie McClurkin to headline a series of concerts that would do two things - raise awareness of the African AIDS crisis, and the much more important part - raise some money for Presidential Candidate Barack Obama.
Almost immediately the radical homosexuals that had been among the largest donor groups to the Obama campaign lost it. Press releases were sent, press conferences were held, the envelope pushing homosexual bloggers picked up on it - and within minutes demands were being made to drop McClurkin from the concert.
