I don't see that any reasonable people can believe what Obama is saying about his relationship with the "Good Reverend". I know the good and bad about every preacher I've ever had. I've even gone to churches where I didn't agree with everything the preacher said. I did tell them when I didn't and told them why, I'm just like that. It doesn't mean your a bad person to disagree with them. The very least Obama should have done is said "Yes, I knew he said it and I thought it was wrong". To say you went to a church for 20 years and never noticed that your preacher is a hate filled racist is stretching the truth to limits beyond belief.
Luke 22:36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
Was Jesus really a passivist?
