McCain’s Pastor is Way Crazier than Obama’s
They’re all over a web, but here’s a video of McCain’s Pastor, Rod Parsley, on a rant about his view of America’s sacred mission.
WTF is up with all these crazy pastors? Obama’s pastor flipped on him and this dude Parsley is straight-up deranged. There are some key differences, however, between the two Reverends and the candidates they are linked to.
Obama’s pastor didn’t have a rep for being crazy until he turned on him, and when he started making all these crazy comments, Obama went out and publicly renounced him. McCain never renounced Parsley despite making comments that were far more hostile and egregiously inflammatory. On the contrary, He has actually welcomed the support. Moreover, seeing as this is not a case where there is some kind of feud or rift between the two (as with Obama/Wright), I cannot imagine that Parsley just came up with this crazy shit recently… I’d wager that he’s been “preaching” (more like spewing) this crap from day 1. I don’t know about you, but the thought of a guy who has a decent shot at becoming the president of the United States sitting down in church (as I would imagine he has, as he brings up religion and spirituality quite often) listening to Parsley say the kinda stuff he said in this video, nodding and hallelujah-ing and going through the motions and coming back the next week, it just makes me a little queasy. And by a little I mean a lot. Don’t you think that if Rev. Wright never publicly insulted Obama, or even if he actually still supported him, but made the same kind of comments as Parsley makes regularly, Barack Obama would renounce any ties with him immediately?
I think he would.
Who knows, maybe these pastors are just gloryhogs who want their day in the limelight. But these dudes don’t preach in front of empty seats, so maybe we should look a little closer to find the root of the problem. It’s a cryin shame that these politicians would probably catch more flack for not having a pastor than they would for having one who is a malicious psycho.
How sad is that?
