He continues to disappoint us!

Just when you thought reports of Barack Obama and his controversial minister Rev. Jeremiah Wright were over, a new individual appears.

Now news of Obama's relationship with homophobe Rev. James T. Meeks has been revealed, and it's very upsetting.

Rev. Meeks is an Illinois state senator and serves as the pastor of the 22,000 member Salem Baptist Church in Chicago, where Obama frequently campaigned back in 2003 when running for Senate.

Rev. Meeks has been described as someone in which Obama seeks spiritual counsel from, according to an article printer in the Chicago Sun Times. He will even serve as an Obama delegate at the 2008 Democratic convention in Denver.

Rev. Meeks has served on Obama’s exploratory committee for the presidency and was even listed on Obama's campaign website as one his ‘influential black supporters’. The Chicago Sun Times also reported that both Rev. Meeks and Obama share a history of receiving substantial campaign contributions from the indicted real estate "criminal" Tony Rezko.

Aside from numerous other reports linking the two together, the real issue is the character of Rev. Meeks, who is known for his racially charged remarks and homophobic ways.

In a 2006 sermon, Rev. Meeks stated, "We don't have slave masters. We got mayors. But they still the same white people who are presiding over systems where black people are not able, or to be educated. You got some preachers that are house niggers. You got some elected officials that are house niggers. And rather than them trying to break this up, they gonna fight you to protect this white man." He later defended that sermon during an interview with a Chicago CBS 2 reporter.

Not to mention Rev. Meeks homophobic ways are well noted. A 2007 newsletter from the Southern Poverty Law Center named Rev. Meeks one of the "10 leading black religious voices in the anti-gay movement."

The newsletter cites him as a key member of Chicago's ‘Gatekeepers’ network (an interracial group of evangelical ministers who strive to erase the division between church and state) and “a stalwart anti-gay activist… [who]… has used his House of Hope mega-church to launch petition drives for the Illinois Family Institute (IFI), a major state-level ‘family values’ pressure group that lauded him last year for leading African Americans in ‘clearly understanding the threat of gay marriage.'”

You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep!

Sad. Sad. Sad.

    I'm not surprised that Obama has surrounded himself with so many tawdry characters. His hands are so dirty from all the contacts with the likes of Meeks and Wright and Rezko and on and on…
    When will the MSM wake up?

    Can you imagine the Republican machine and what they'll do with these clips? All Obama lovers should think about this. There are many voters who will be swayed by these videos and that will lead to a McCain victory. Obama as our nominee=McCain as our president.

    you have got to be kidding me with this…please try and be a little more politically open minded….comments about things like this are what is splitting the democratic party apart….do you really want some grey haired old man who comes from old money running our country? there are many other issues at hand than gay rights…

    I can't believe that you are this intimidated by greatness, are you a person of color in America? You are just as bad as the people who voted for Bush Jr. just because they are christians who don't believe in abortions

    910

    Unfortunately, why would anyone expect a "religious" person to be anything less than a homophobe? Many Christians have perversed the Bible and interpret quotes about a man and woman being together as meaning that same sex marriages are anti-Christian. I think those people are personally full of shit! Barack's has done nothing wrong by affiliating himself with this minister. he has only done wrong if he hasn't denounced his anti-gay remarks. Barack will fight for the rights of all minorities…he's made himself into a bad ass…Hillary was handed this nomination by her husband (who I love by the way!)

WHat about HRC and all the creeps and low life she is affliated with? Come on…guys….do your homework here….. I get you support HRC, but you cant blame Obama for something someone else said.

    Perez, come on now! I know you want Hilary to win but try finding some facts about him and his issues to write about and not the people he knows are somewhat affiliated with. If we're going to do that, Hilary is married to womanizing pig who fell asleep during a Civil Rights Ceremony but I don't see you condoning her for being married to him and yet you condone Obama for being simply associated with someone like Rev Meeks.

    Further more, if we were all judged by the people we associated with we wouldn't look good either. Perez sure seems to admire alot of drug addicted, drunk driving, amorally challenged, bigoted, and vile celebrities whom he regards to as “friends”, so should we think of him any less than we do??

    Get down from the pulpit…please no one is above reproach

    Really Perez? Hilary Clinton is not a bastion of gay rights:

    During her husband's administration, she supported the Defense of Marriage Act, a law preventing the federal recognition of same-sex marriage.

    She has been quoted stating "Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage always has been, between a man and a woman." - Hillary Clinton, opposing same-sex marriages, quoted in The New York Daily News.

    Hillary Clinton did not co-sponsor Uniting American Families Act that would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to provide same-sex partners of U.S. citizens the same immigration benefits legal spouses of U.S. residents enjoy.

    Talk about calling the kettle black! If you're going to base your opinion on a candidate based on their company, than why the hell are you supporting Clinton? She is also associated with homophobes, racists, and not to mention a promiscuous pushy husband. You should base your opnion on the CANDIDATE not on their company

    Re: Lauren – I'm an aussie, and i watch the news all the time including your cnn. not once have i ever heard obama being racist or sexist. on the other hand i did hear how hillary lied about bosnia and about that pastor spewing hatred,even about italians. But that is him, that did not come out of obama's mouth. it did come out of hillary's mouth that she was under attack and the media show her walking along calmly. So that's a lie right? A bit like bush's lies about the war, yeh who are u going to vote for? someone who could change your country? or someone who targets the minority with the promises of i do? geez i wish i had intelligence like yourself who obviously can see the broader spectrum….. AND BEFORE YOU SAY ANTHING WHOEVER IS VOTED IN_ AFFECTS THE WORLD!!! REMEMBER HALVE OF OTHER PEOPLE'S NATIONS ARE AT WAR RIGHT THIS MINUTE BECAUSE OF AMERICA. PEREZ, THINK ABOUT YOUR NATIONS DEBT, HEALTHCARE U KNOW THE STUFF THAT MATTERS!!! U ARE A FUCKING MORON, WHO GIVES GAY PEOPLE NO HOPE IN HAVING NORMAL LIVES AND BEING LOOKED AT AS EQUAL BECAUSE OF YOUR LITTLE MIND. MY COUSINS GAY AND HE THINKS YOUR PATHETIC, I ADMIT I LOOK AT THIS SITE, BUT HE WOULDN'T DARE

    Obama's church is a part of the first denomination in America to officially ordain practicing homosexual clergy and perform gay marriages in the church. Long before the Lutherans and the Episcopalians jumped on the band wagon, the UCC created a national strategy to lobby for the legalization of gay marriage and to create a movement of radical social engineering in America.

    You should pass ignorance along. Know what you are talking about before you say it-Perez

    Re: Christina C.

    the funny thing is that we people put clition down is that it is stuff that she is actually doing….
    w/ obama its never what HE has person is doing…

  53. writergirl says – reply to this


    953

    I agree with the person who asked where your comments about Hillary's "dangerous" trip to Bosnia. Obama has never called Wright his "Spiritual guide" - he would go to church and sometimes he was preaching - a far cry from "spiritual guide." Stick to celebrities Hilton, you don't know enough to fairly comment. Some people I know aren't for gay marriage and are bigoted, it doesn't mean I am too.

    The Clinton machine will try to win at all costs - even if it means splintering the party and letting McCain win. We've had 20 years of a Bush or Clinton in the White House, we need new energy and ideas. I don't want to live in a dynasty.

    Perez-Just remember, Rev Wright was also a "spiritual counselor" for BILL CLINTON.

  55. Megan Rupert says – reply to this


    955

    I hope you don't think Hillary's friends are perfect. Just because someone has a friend or mentor with some crazy beliefs, it doesn't mean they share those same thoughts! Some of the people who have influenced me the most in my life have tons of radical ideas that I completely disagree with. Who would we find if we tried to dig up the dirt on you, Perez? It is totally unfair for you to judge Obama based on his friends or aquaintences.

    "someone in which Obama seeks spiritual counsel from"? Really? You need an editor in which you seek grammar counsel from.

  58. tatiana says – reply to this


    958

    this is pathetic, seriously. I'm not going to say I won't visit your site anymore because that would be stupid, but my respect for you as well as the "gay community" has really gone down. Aren't you of all people supposed to be open minded and tolerant? As in willing to listen/talk with people of different views about a whole host of issues? As long as you yourself remain just and moral and accepting, it shouldn't matter who you associate yourself with right? And given that its politics and Chicago, there are plenty of leaders in the community who probably have radically different opinions than you. Should a politician, a senator from that state, not associate himself with them?

    Did you know that Hillary and Bill Clinton have donated money to a church in New York, where a certain pastor uses the most offensive language about Obama in Church? Look it up on YouTube - atlah. Hillary also has her own Rezko, a man named Norman Hsu - a man I believe is currently in jail. But it doesn't matter to you, it shouldn't, you just don't get the point. I'm writing this because you were a cool guy and I love reading your crazy blog but now I just think of you, and by de facto the gay community, as a bunch of hacks.

  59. Babe says – reply to this


    959

    Let's not forget the man Hillary is MARRIED TO is responsible for "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Not exactly the best example of pro-gay policy in the last 20 years. I heart you, Perez, but give me a break. Hillary is a fine candidate, but Senator Obama is already inspiring the change this country needs and he's not even president yet.

    ENOUGH with the politics!!
    Frankly, I'm gonna ditch you for The Hollywood Gossip!!

    I know that you probably don't care about what ANY of your reader has to say, otherwise you would have gotten by now that MOST of us want you to STOP polluting your blog with your political bias..

    You think you're so hot Perez!!
    Posing with celebrities, showing off your new hair, as if someone cares!!

    EXCUSE ME, but the political opinion of someone as ignorant and ridiculous as you doesn't have ANY credibility!! You didn't even know that they don't speak French in Toronto.. YEAH! You're gonna have a really BIG influence on my political views!! Forget CNN and let's listen to Perez!

    You're so dumb you don't even realize that you're only helping in the presidential loss of the Democrats!!
    So for one last time..

    1. You exaggerate some claims that even the REAL media finds not credible.

    2. Obama has held several events in the past month just for GLBT and you have reported none. One of them was well publicized in the gay community.

    3. This is not how we win a presidency, I am a Obama guy myself but I will not bash Hillary just to make him look better for one reason and one reason alone…we are on the same team!

    964

    perez…this needs to stop. stick to celebrity blogging and stop the one sided half assed political reporting. its people like you that are hurting the democratic party's chance at winning the presidency. you are not educating people you aren't presenting all the facts and sides of a story.

    the clinton camp keeps bringing up these negative stories about obama and he is trying to unite the country. and if i only kept company with people that i agreed 100% with, i would have no friends…and i'm sure its the same for you. i have some homophobic friends,,,but does that mean i should cut them out? no…you have to have a dialogue about gay rights or you will only alienate opponents and prolong thier ignorance. just because obama has a friend who is homophobic does not mean that he himself is.

    thanks Perez, for sharing this. Sorry to all you uninformed blind Obamanoids..but this is what your guy is all about. Not yet convinced? Keep digging, the info is there. check out his past …Rezko, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dorn, Rev Wright, Black Panthers. When something looks too good to be true, it Usually is. Not this guy, not this unknown. At least Hillary we know, and her wee bit of "lies" are laughable compared to this guy!

    974

    It's really disturbing the way Obama flip flops on issues. He sucked parts of the gay community in. Then I heard him tell an audience in Medford, Oregon that gay marriage is an issue too trivial to dicuss on a national level - Obama's way of throwing gays under the bus to a crowd that voted against the gay marriage bill. One begins to wonder if Obama has any core value system at all besides calculated ambition - or, perhaps his long years of association with corrupt chicago politicians. anti-white hate theologians and spokespersons for gay oppression reveals his true core. When did the black community become the new "right wing". Ick. (I know that's not the case for the entire African American population, but all of this vocal and vehement hate speech lately brought to light is truly disturbing.)

    Why does it matter who supports him? Rev. Meeks won't be running the country.
    Rev. Meeks obviously supports Obama for other reasons since Obama has spoken out for gay rights.
    Focus on the person and the politics. You can't control supporters/endorsements, it doesn't work like that.

    Fuck off. why don't you find something about obama to dislike other than everyone else around him…you ass hole, and speak for yourself…look at the company YOU keep…actually look at yourself, you are a horrible person with very low self esteem and it's so apparent. sad sad sad.

    Re: Mischa

    "Coon" ? that's an ugly racial remark.
    Oh no, do you support Hillary?
    An anti-black person supports Hillary…oh dear, that must mean Hillary won't be a good president.

    Just to play devil's advocate - Obama is entitled to his own opinion of homosexuality so long as it does not interfere with the American people. His job is to protect and represent American citizens, and so long as his personal beliefs (whatever they may be!) don't take priority over the will of the citizens, then he is entitled to his own opinions!!!

    If you think for a minute that the majority of anyone's campaign really cares about homosexual intrests you have lost your mind. You really should focus more on staying neutral before McCain wins it. Campaign trails sometimes are in muddy waters Perez. Republicans want us to tear eachother apart, it shows vacilitory ways.

    Perez,
    you cannot help you keep company with, *especially* if you are a politician. You have to engage with the world, you cannot screen everyone you come in contact with. I am sure you yourself have found yourself in the company of a homophobic person, or a racist person. please consider your postings as your readers my not read any other "News" source. You know that Barack will support the gay community where as mcCain will not. Unless you want to tip the scales….be careful.

    really perez? why do you fall for this shit? who cares who obama knows or has a "relationship" with? listen to his positions on the issues not who he knows.. i get that you are for hillary but you shouldnt perpetuate this garbage cause by doing so you are no differnt than the neo cons on fox news!!

    Perez, you need to take an African American Studies/Lit course. As a white female, I do not find any of the Rev's comments about white people offensive because they are TRUE! Racism continues to eat away at our country. As far as gay rights, Obama is a democrat. There isn't a question of whose side he'll be on.; he'd lose too many votes to go against the gay community.
    Politicians will be politicians. Don't spoon feed your audience holy light for Hillary and camp. Be more strategic, or all of us non white males will be fucked for another four years.

    I think we all have people in our lives that are influential to us and who we respect but we do not have to agree with them on everything. Being a homosexual and coming from a latin family you of all people should know that. Your Tia may not like that you are gay and she probably says alot of nasty shit about it but she is you fam and you have to put up with her at Christmas. We shouldn't judge the man because of those around him but on the basis of his character and he is an amazing individual that can lead us in a different direction! Sorry its so long but I am very passionate about this.

    Hahah.. Americans make me laugh… Goo Perez.. who cares who you support this is obviously a true fact.. and I'm not a fan of homosexuality even though my mum has been a Lesbian all my life… but to put any group based n lifestyle choices is not right… look at all these pro Obama supporters.. they sound like sad sack loosers with their nasty personal attacks on you Perez… who says your not allowed to have a political opinion?? Anyway even all the way down here in Australia (where we dont care who wins to be honest) but Mr Obama looks unsure, shaky and lacks the integrity of character (ie: read balls) to be President!.. But it sure is funny reading his supporters drivel on here…lol..Australia laughs…

    Perez…stop with the Obama hating…Barack Obama has done nothing but support the gay community. No matter what happens in the Democratic primaries, both candidates are progressive and open minded. As liberals and Democrats, we do not need to divide our base by these ridiculous claims

    Perez-
    Obama has stated time and time again that though he does not agree with Meeks' STATEMENTS, he cannot simply cut him out of his life. Much the same goes with family; perhaps you don't agree with the things your family says or believes, but it is one thing to DISAGREE with someone's statements and quite another to completely disown the person for things they've said.
    I agree with the people before me. Senator Obama has shown his support for the GLBT community time and time again, and it is absolutely unfair to form an opinion on him based on people in his life.

    Judge not lest ye be judged.

    Perez, you are such an idiot. EVERY Chicago politician has a relationship with State Senator Reverend Meeks. His church has 14,000 members on the south side of Chicago, where Obama's state senate district was.

    You should think before you post, and lay off the politics while you're at it. You have NO IDEA about Chicago politics.

    I don't believe or agree in everything that my pastor says. Obama spiritual advisor's is just that. Making him out to be anything else makes you seem ignorant. Putting down one of the candidates of the party that you support makes no sense. If you want to educate someone show both sides on the argument not just one.

    Perez… i love ur site and visit multiple times a day, but be fair, if you are going to blast Obama for his issues please do the same for Clinton although you are a supporter. Furthermore, you should not be so quick to judge as you sit here and discuss trash about people all day everyday. You are a strong backer of HILLARY and you seem to fit right into her type of company so if you live ina glass house please do not throw stones.

    All this ridiculous talk about letting McCain win by being for Hillary-give me a break and people-have a mind of your own for once. You really buy into all of that media hype, don't you? Go get a history book and educate yourselves. This is a campaign and anyone-ANYONE-can run-this is a democracy, after all. And Hillary should continue to run until the Democratic convention. It's not over, people you're misled if you think so. Like I said before, educate yourself to the campaign process before latching on to the media hype that the democrats are doomed just yet! And think before you speak (or write) such nonsense. :-)
