In Bad Company

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.

    Perez, I'm a big fan of your site, BUTT… you are so off base when it comes to politics. You are so very bias … I didn't see anything about Clinton and here invisible sniper fire or about how SHE OWES medical health insurance coverage for her staff and family of over $220,000. OR many other UNFAVORABLE topics that you refuse to "write" about. I think it's time to put YOU on our "TUNE OUT" list. IF you are going to report on politics, THEN YOU MUST DO IT UNBIAS OR JUST STICK TO WHAT YOU DO BEST….PUTTING DOWN CELEBS. Sincerely, REALLY PISSED OFF AT PEREZ CHICK.

    Oh give it a fucking rest… To pounce on stuff like this as a *story* shows how, by comparison, this election is so much more dignified than the previous two elections. Is our collective memory that short? I've had the great misfortune of meeting that so-called "Reverend" Meeks many times and he's nothing more than an opportunist, a self-promoter who cares little about the truth because he has his god on his side. Or so he says. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama didn't even know the man! Even if he did, Meeks is so much more aggreable than most of the Bushies! I'm a fag and I'd still take Meeks over those crusty old 'publicans.

    I just gotta say to all of you who may read this……if the 10 most stupid and unintelligent things perez hilton has ever said was put out on a blog and ran into the dirt all over the internet and television …..no one would even like him anymore, my point being i never want anyone to judge me over the company i may or may not have not kept in the past, present, or future,,,,you can only judge senator barack for what he does and wants to do for this country not by the company he keeps…..make an informed decision by what research you do on your own not by what someone else thinks!!!!!! Either way you swing Democrat or Republican…..VOTE OR DIE !!!!!!!! STAND FOR SOMETHING OR FALL FOR ANYTHING

    Obama is a fraud he has been associating himself for the last 20 years with these ant-everything except black pastors and minters to move up in the politics of Chicago , then he gets on the national stage and pretends he his something else, with his bull shit speeches, what is really sad is the democrat party that wants to nominate a person that has accomplished nothing in his life has no experience besides making himself more rich and famous to be their candidate for President.

    Acually Perez, if you knew anything about the Black Christian community, you would know that most black pastors are homophobic. In fact, that is one of the reasons that HIV/AIDS is said to be so prevalent still in the black community. So if you are a politician that knows of or is supported by the black church, then by default you will have homophobes as supporters. Just thought I might educate you Perez.

    321

    You haven't said a single thing about the trash that is coming out about hill's camp. Stay out of politics. I have friends since birth that don't agree on all the issues with me. That doesn't mean i'm going to dump them as friends, it just means there are certain topics of conversations we don't talk about. Good lord Perez. You should really read these comments and see what the majority of your readers REALLY think about this. And then stop reporting on politics. It's not your field.

  22. Amanda says – reply to this


    322

    The same could be said for all of Hillary's shady friends (see one Geraldine Ferraro). Yes, there is something to be said about the company that you keep, but many times you don't get involved with what your friends do, nor do you know all that your friends are involved with…and the same could be said for Hillary and her "friends." Plus, I don't support people whose sole purpose is personal preservation and success, as opposed to a united Democratic ticket supporting whichever candidate proves victorious…which Hillary can't grasp OBVIOUSLY isn't her.

  23. anon says – reply to this


    323

    Perez, I love the web site, but your political bent has to stop. I do not come to your site for your political musings (although you are obviously entitled to them) and I would guess, just based on the comments I've read so far, that others are with me on this one. Understand that a good percentage of your readers do not share your enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton and find these postings at the very best, annoying, and the very worst, almost a deal breaker for future visits. Honestly, where was your coverage of her blatent Bosnia lie? So please stop. I really like you guys, but stuff like this is changing my mind.

  24. Barack 'em Sock 'em says – reply to this


    324

    Aside from all this hoopla, I am from Chicago and have sat in services at both Rev. Wright and (now that you mention him) Rev. Meek's churches. My pastor is close friends with both of them. I don't understand what the big deal is in part because my pastor says things that are controversial all the time and I don't necessarily agree with the majority of his personal opinions outside of their relation to WORD of GOD which is what I attend church for in the 1st place. Say what you will, but the fact remains…Barack can't control what comes out of people's mouths because their thoughts, ideals, hypocrises, life experiences, etc are all their own. He can however, only control himself, defend his actions/mistakes/bad choices in the past and UNITE THIS COUNTRY, ADVANCING US ALL FORWARD FOR THE BETTER. The most important thing we should all be focused on this election year is never having to end a "presidency" the way we are right now — at a never-ending and unjustified war, in foreclosure/serious debt, unemployed, lacking healthcare, must I go on because I can, knowing that I will touch on an issue that impacts you. We as Americans continue to face these same problems because instead of unifying, we want to keep segregating rather than realizing that WE ARE ALL AMERICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Before being black, white, asian, hispanic, gay, conservative — whatever! Our issues are all the same regardless of what we claim to be.

    As always Perez picks what he wants. Hillary has been endorsed and suported by the Rev. Harold Mayberry who is also anti-gay. In fact he was activerly worked to ban gay marraige in Georgia. Yes you can tell a lot about somebody by the company they keep. And let us not forget Hillary is married to the man who signed DOMA into law…Hillary's campaing is run a man who works for Blackwater…Please Perez why don't you stick to what you're good at. Eating the house!

    OH PLEASE. IF THIS WAS HILLARY YOU WOULD ALL BE CALLING HER "EVIL" AND THE "DEVIL" BUT SINCE THIS IS OBAMA HE IS "INNOCENT AND NOT HIS FAULT THAT HE KEEPS THIS COMPANY".

    obama isn't the one that's protesting against the gays.

    why all the hate?

    330

    THIS IS AMERICA. Where our children die in the streets trying to get educations. Where our grandmas and grandpas can't afford healthcare and medication even though they helped build this country. Where pedophiles roam the streets, waiting to prey on unsuspecting victims. Once we finally stop hating one another and trying to illustrate our numerous differences, and see the vision that not just Barack, but so many other seemingly voiceless Americans like myself also see, then we will truly rise as a nation and once again be a force to reckon with on the world stage. Until then, we'll still be stuck — in segregation.

    it's so obvious that you are so biased that people don't listen to your opinion. So if you want to be taken more seriously- I suggest you post things about both sides… and another commenter was right– I hope you know you are helping McCain win by all your negative press!! People don't want that anymore… Just stop. You also don't know what you're talking about.

    I have family, friends and other people who I have been associated with who are racist and/or homophobic (and maybe a few other things) but that doesn't mean that I am. If we all have to be permanently marked by the company we keep, then I'm sure we'll have very, very few people to hang out with. I trust Obama's words more than I trust the media and his associations from his past.

    Do we really think Barack Obama is like that? Just because he is friend with people with opinions that are outlandish doesn't mean he will act that way.
    Give Barack a little more credit. He has gotten this far for a reason and not because he is some anti- homophob or racist.
    I think you could find a lot of affiliations with Hillary, McCain that are awful as well.. Let's give Barack a break!! PLEASE!

    339

    What PASTOR isn't against gay marriage? Basically anyone who strictly follows the book believes that living a gay lifestyle is wrong. This is no way is any reflection of Obama; I'm sure McCain's pastor is WAY more radical than Obama's and besides at the moment which would you rather - A) have someone in as President who's Pastor is against gays or B) have someone as President who themselves is against it AND wants to prolong this pointless and wasteful war? Hmm.

    Re: Alissa – Not just you but Are you people serious, what role does religion play in politics, you are not judged by who you associate with?…..How about our president now who is all for the Christian rights and anyone who does not see it that way is an enemy to our country. Peoples religious views matter very much in any election, why do you think they all pander to it. Even Obama. He holds religion at his core and that he is a man of faith, but he is aligning himself with the David Duke of the african american people and then when the shit hits the fan he plays "not me" that is flip flopping and talking out of both sides of his mouth if you ask me. Racism is only racism when a white person says it and I think that is wrong. Racism and descrimnation are everywhere. I am a Dem tried and true, but if he is elected I will vote for McCain, I may throw up after doing it but I will vote for McCain.

    I am from Chicago and it is a very racially charged city. Our mayor hires who he wants and most have very corrupt political ties. Reverend Meeks along with most spiritual leaders condemn homosexuality, nothing new there. Yes, you can tell a lot about a person by the company that they keep. What about the Whitewater scandal? People need to get off of their soap boxes and look at the real fucking issues. Since Barack would not play the race card, the media decides to do it for him. Straight up BS!

    It amazes me that instead of focusing on real political matters that you would highlight acquaintances. Taking this into consideration I guess it's safe to conclude that you are a racist yourself because you have choose to allow racist comments such as "coon" to be posted on your page. I don't believe his pastor is racist you try being a black person growing up in one of our communities- being gay would be the least of your problems!!! Obama stands for change and that's why i support him!!! Ignorance is a disease and you are in dire need of a physician!!!! YES WE WILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Everybody has a different opinion, lets start with that. We are in a free country!
    Let me remind you all that THIS BLOG you are reading, Belongs to PEREZ and he decides what to write and what not to write. If Hillary is paying him… (which I doubt) GOOD FOR HIM! If she is not… Well…. WHATEVER!
    This is Perez's opinion! He writes whatever he wants, if you don't like it and you have come here to expose your disgusting use of the english language, then perhaps you should consider some serious retraining in grammar and vocabulary.
    You are all behaving like animals!! Where do you live in AMERICA or in in the middle of the jungle?
    For God's sake, enough stupidity! It's enough! Really! ENOUGH!
    Perez is a free US CITIZEN. If he supports Clinton… then that's it… End if the story!
    You should not BOO him or those who support Clinton… and vice-versa!
    This is sad! Very Sad! Once again, you are proving to the rest of the world that AMERICANS are stupid! Keep behaving like you do, writing like you do… and perhaps, with a little bit of luck one day… you will leave the country to go back ot the jungle where you all came from.
    Stay there please!
    This is America, we are free to say what we want! AS LONG AS WE DO NO OFFEND OR HURT ANYBODY! Have you had a look at the constitution lately?

    Gay-bashing is wrong, but the other pastor was perfectly reasonable and right in his assessments of race in this country. Just take a stroll through the comments on this website for proof. Black people have every reason to be angry, if they are paying attention. Just because white people don't like being called out on their shit doesn't make it "reverse racism". In fact, reverse racism is an impossibility.

  61. Cassandra says – reply to this


    361

    Wow, Perez… really disappointed in you.

    OBAMA IS NOT ANTI-GAY, nor is he a homophobe. Within the past week, he has met with gay groups in NY and PA. He has often referred to homosexuals as his BROTHERS & SISTERS, even to the black community while trying to eliminate some of the homophobia that exists in that group. He is open to the possibility of legalizing gay marriage in the future… yet Mrs. Clinton says she does not see the legality of it. What else did the Clintons do? Oh, that's right… "don't ask, don't tell." It's true that there is a large amount of disdain for homosexuality in the black community, but Obama is working to overcome that. For all you that say he is inexperienced: true, he may not have as much as the other candidates, but he is working to unite us and has made a lot of progression… which is what's most important.

    His pastor's views don't reflect his own… we've been through this already.

    Re: J – How about you go and read up on some stories that are out there on Obama. I love how he voted AGAINST an abortion provision that would have allowed medical attention to late term abortions where the fetus lived. Instead he voted to let them be thrown in the trash ALIVE. I am pro-choice. Go out there and see for yourself his record instead of listening to his cult like speaches that are nothing but hot air and empty promises. This Dem will vote for McCain over that douche anyday.

As someone with a Master's in political campaigning, you're doing a grave disservice to not only your readers, but also the campaigns themselves by selectively posting news about the candidates. Where was your outrage about all of Hillary's gaffes? Keep this bullshit up, and you're definitely going to lose another reader. My BFF already refuses to read your site, because of your shameless self-promotion and inability to achieve any threshold for critical thinking. Ugh. You're almost no better than the trash you make fun of.

    perez you need to be a little more cautious with what youre posting here re the current election. Your support of Hillary is admirable but you also have to look at the bigger picture. Lets see some posts about John McCains skeletons. What the republican party and its ties mean in the general election is far scarier that anything you can attempt to drudge up on here in a last ditch effort to get Hill nominated. Wake up-it's not going to happen. Present the whole picture of what this GENERAL ELECTION will mean-not just the primaries. You are doing a great disservice to this country and your readers by only airing Barrack's dirty laundry. Shame on you.

    I am so glad to see at least one media outlet will tell this story. You can tell a person's real colors by their bedfellows. And Obama has the worst sort. These are men who hide behind the cloth for political gain. They couldn't be Christians because Christians are taught tolerence and to love thy neighbor. These fools are hate mongers(sp). They are doing the same thing that Hitler did to get power and that is using hatred to FIREUP the people. So many in the media support Obama making it hard to get the real story. And yes , Keith Olbermann is the worst person in the world as he would say. Olbermann is so up Obama's rear it is insane. Olbermann still lives with his mother!!! He doesn't drive and has no girlfriend in his life, maybe Olbermann is gay?? If so he needs to change candidates, because it looks like Obama's men are out to burn people not like them on the cross. Obama and his posse twist the bible to suit themselves and to gain power through church and brainwash the masses..

    Hey don't be so fucking stupid! Any body that believes so much in god is going to end up dealing with ignorant people. Get used to it and accept that its all about numbers in the political game. Fuck OBAMA AND HILARY…. ITS GORE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!! BITCHS……..pray that the democratic party is smart enough to do one thing right and draft Gore as the nominee.

    These are not skeletons in Obama's closet, they are skeletons in the closet of that minister. Obama is not anti-gay and everyone knows it, he consistently votes and pushes gay rights. he is well rounded and the negative press needs to stop. Hillary needs to step down so the democratic party can be united. I'll vote obama and i'm a republican.

    If this was about Hillary, you can bet that Huffington Post, CNN, FOx etc…would be blasting it on their broadcasts, websites etc…but as it is about Obama, it will probably get a tiny mention, if at all.

    thispost is so pathetic….just like your messiah, hillary. for the millionth time, OBAMA is running for pres. not his friends, colleagues and every person he's met since birth! and as shady as clinton is, it is hilarious that anyone is going at barack like this….cuz when someone has nothing else to do but research everyone hillary knows, she's gonna plummet even faster than she is now with all of her lies and sh*t. perez, give up! not everyone loves gays. and everyone doesn't have to

    oh come on perez. shame on YOU. quit hating on Obama, unless you want another 8 years of republican (SUPER-anti-gay) leadership. Obama was at a gay event in New York last night, he's WAY more for civil rights than Hillary.

    you know, you should really stick to what you know. I come here looking for light hearted jabs at celebrities. You're sorely lacking in background information to be drawing conclusions about the character of Barack Obama. In fact, you personify whats wrong with the American political landscape. Soundbites from gossips like you keep Americans dumbed down and disracted by Britney et all. Get over it mr."one issue voter" (Cuba) be a real democrat!!! you're only serving McCain at this point.

    What about John McCain and John Hagee? He actively sought the support of that bigot who has made incendiary remarks against catholics, jews, and homosexuals.

    And McCain was "honored" when he received Hagee's endorsement.

    Yet one more story showing Obama's pro-black radical agenda.
    -
    -
    -
    -
    Obama likes to align himself with radical cop killers and domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. He's taken their dirty money and passed it on to Rev. Wright to help fund his church's anti-white ministries.

    Obama's talk of unity is a joke. He tells the general public one thing and tells black people another.

    You're a racist Perez! And you may as well consider yourself homophobic too because the more you believe that Hillary is a great candidate that has done more into repressing the independence of women to beat McCain in Novemember you're doing nothing to help the gay community. OBAMA has already stated that he does not believe in the full textures in the gay community…get over yourself!

    I don't understand how who he associates with mirrors his personality in anyway hes obviously not homophobic and he doesn't go to the man for homophobic advice. If you're looking for bad things about a person you're most definitely going to find them whether you like it or not.

    Perez you are not loyal. First you pass under silence all the good news about Obama, then you heavily underline those aspects.

    You are so hypocritical sometimes. Sad.

    And how narrow minded is this say?: “You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep”.

    Please stick to the Celebrity juice and leave out the political B.S. I'd be more interested why you all support Hillary rather than he said/she said reasons why we should not support others.

    Glad to see so many people standing up for Barack!!! Obama 2008: Change I believe in!

    You know I do not even come close to agreeing with all the views of individuals I associate with or even look up to. They may have good qualities about them, but may have some views that are the opposite of what I believe. I ahve never been judged based on THEIR beliefs. That is what you are doing. I really like you Perez, but have been SO disappointed with the way you skew the news stories and only report the negative about Obama and the positive about Hilary. Was there a story about her landing under "fire" when she landed in Bosnia….I don't remember a mention of it (I could be wrong about that, but I don't miss much on your site)…and that proves that she is a flat out liar!

    Disappointed in you Perez. I can't believe you'd believe that just because he knows these people, he agrees with them. Quit being so bigoted and actually listen to some of his speeches. He is VERY pro-gay. Besides, I really don't want t a woman that looked the other way when her husband was f-ing an intern to be my child's role model.
