Obama's Nutbag Pastor: 'God Damn America'

As opposed to "God Bless America." Very nice words to come out of a clergyman's mouth, especially one who claims to be Christian and not Wahhabi.

This is not good news for a candidate who makes a point of eschewing an American flag pin, has a Che Guevara-worshipping staffer, a wife who has rarely been proud to be an American, and likes to cup his balls during the National Anthem.

Here's a sample of the hatred spewed by Jeremiah Wright, the man who married Barack and Michelle Obama:

"The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people," he said in a 2003 sermon. "God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."

In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda's attacks because of its own terrorism.

"We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye," Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.
