Black Liberation Theology or Marxism?
October 3, 2009
They are basically the same thing.
And how special is it that out esteemed President sat in Rev. Wrights congregation for 20 years and never heard Rev. Wright spew this garbage??
I can tell you that I actually listen to my pastor when he speaks, and if something sounds off, I investigate and ask questions. But there is absolutely no way I would sit through sermon after sermon listening to crap like Rev. Wright was spewing.
And it’s so lame of Obama to say he never heard anything like that? Oh really. When the Rev. was “Goddamning” the USA, what exactly was Obama thinking?? Was he thinking “well, there’s nothing wrong with that?” I can’t believe he would be so ignorant as to say he never heard anything like that at the church. Any normal thinking Christian would run out of a church that was spewing such garbage as Rev. Wright was spewing.
Oh, wait. I forgot, this is Chicago.
This is an interesting article about Black liberation Theology
The Marxist Roots of Black Liberation Theology
What is Black Liberation Theology anyway? Barack Obama’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright catapulted black liberation theology onto a national stage, when America discovered Trinity United Church of Christ. Understanding the background of the movement might give better clarity into Wright’s recent vitriolic preaching. A clear definition of black theology was first given formulation in 1969 by the National Committee of Black Church Men in the midst of the civil-rights movement:
Black theology is a theology of black liberation. It seeks to plumb the black condition in the light of God’s revelation in Jesus Christ, so that the black community can see that the gospel is commensurate with the achievements of black humanity. Black theology is a theology of ‘blackness.’ It is the affirmation of black humanity that emancipates black people from White racism, thus providing authentic freedom for both white and black people. It affirms the humanity of white people in that it says ‘No’ to the encroachment of white oppression.
