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.

    since when did select opinions of our cohorts necessarily become our opinions? isn't it more open minded and tolerant to evaluate a person for all their constituent parts? obama is obviously a supporter of the glbt community. check out andrew sullivan's blog at the atlantic http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/ to get some more substantive conversation on obama and GLBT issues.

    Somehow the original post didn't make it - here it is again
    If you can tell a lot about a person by the company you keep then pay attention to the copmany the Clinton's keep:
    ▪ Number of Starr-Ray investigation convictions or guilty pleas to date: one governor, one associate attorney general and two Clinton business partners: 14.
    ▪ Number of Cabinet members who came under criminal investigation: 5.
    ▪ Number of individuals and businesses associated with the Clinton machine that were convicted of or pleaded guilty to crimes: 47.
    ▪ Number of these convictions during Clinton's presidency: 33.
    ▪ Number of indictments/misdemeanor charges: 61.
    ▪ Number of congressional witnesses who pleaded the Fifth Amendment, fled the country to avoid testifying, or (in the case of foreign witnesses) refused to be interviewed: 122.
    ▪ Guilty pleas and convictions obtained by Donald Smaltz in cases involving charges of bribery and fraud against former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy and associated individuals and businesses: 15; acquitted or overturned cases (including Espy): 6.

    "You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep!"
    You're OVERREACTING! NO Politician has completely clean skirts, because they represent no one group - their constituency is vast and chooses them because of hit-and-miss similarities.
    Obama could admire spiritual aspects of the Reverend's personality, and not be aligned with his hate.
    Juxtapose yourself: some of the people over whom you fawn and worship on your site REALLY aren't your friends - they just have features that satisfy your professional and entertainment needs, and the remainder of them you discard for those who are most truly like you, right?
    Clinton, the Bushes, Reagan - they all had strange bedfellows (you know Nancy was really gay positive with all those designers and party throwers around, and Ronnie put up with it) The Bushes, for all their whiteness, have South American grandchildren, a whoremonger son, slutty secretaries, etc., etc., and their spritual choices have been strange. And we all lived through the Clinton dichotomies.

    You are taking Obama to task "too hard" - he's not super black candidate, he's just a political candidate. And that really knows no color.

    dude really?!?! if you actually listen to what is going on rather than just comment on pictures you might have different views on things. i guess you are to busy drawing jizz and dicks on famous nobodies. politics should not be in the same category as hollywood. the problem with this country is that we have our heads up our asses and even inside our own asses there is a god damn television. if you really want to comment on political things do a little book work. that should weed out the chioces nicely. clinton and her ilk are dirty but dont believe me, look up the company she keeps. basically i think our responsibility as americans is to take control of what we have been given being born in this amazing country before it is gone. we have to wake up no matter what side you take and demand that we retain our rights which have been slowly and painfully peeled away from us. it is sad that we were once on top and now the best we can do is paris hilton and that poor britney spears. there is more to life that jizz lips!! just put down your laptop for a day and figure things out. come one man grow up a little bit or else there will be nothing left here except bullshit. where is the quality?

    This is a lame attempt at "gotcha." The fact is that Senator Obama has been infinitely more vocal about gay rights than Senator Clinton, even chiding a black audience about the way the black community treats gay matters.

    Instead of just throwing this sort of stuff out there, make an actual point: are you asserting that Senator Obama is lying when he touts gay rights?

All of you Obama supporters are going to get one hell of a suprise when if he gets elected and turns into the rascist homophobe that he is, jacking up taxes for the white man, and improving welfare for minorities. while stripping away gay rights. Claire? Has your tiny pea brain even investigated what Obama's platform for "change" really is? You sure would be pissed if YOUR rights were taken away. WHORE! Study up dummy, and ROT IN HELL!

    The Tony Rezco hype is old news and has been out for years in Chicago, it's came more to the fore front now since Obama chose to run for president. You can best believe if there was more dirt on Obama with Tony Rezco, the media along with Hillary would be having a field day by now.

    Why do people spend so much time talking about what Obama's acquaintances say and/or believe in? I have plenty of friends, good friends, who don't share my exact opinion on certain issues and that does not make me a bad person. And it definitely doesn't make Obama a bad person. I could care less what his Reverend, his barber, or his gardener have to say! I love you Perez but, I'm getting fed up with your one sided reporting on Obama.

    Perez, stick to celebrity gossip. Your candidate is a pathological liar and an embarassment to women everywhere — dodging bullets in Bosnia (with her 16 year old daughter), fighting against NAFTA (despite what her white house records say), sending her husband out to essentially call Obama the "N"- word, stoking hate-mongering by claiming Obama isn't a muslim "as far as she knows." If you are going to call out candidates for their actions, give equal time.

    Hi Perezito,

    I was a member of the Catholic church. I absolutely loved my Pastor. A very spiritual man from Eastern Europe. I used to counsel with him weekly and he gave me some good advice and I always felt his prayers were spiritual. This same pastor allowed pasrrish members to have anti-abortion tables and posters and they followed for rote all the Pope's teachings. I personally am opposed to the mixture of church and state. The tables stopped, but it didnt change the politics of the members there. You should see all the racist, elitist, homophobic stuff that goes on in alot of fine, upstanding churches. I can understand how Obama might have received spiritual solace from someone whose political views he is not in complete alignment with. Have an open mind on this subject. I am leery of every "approved" candidate to lead the Empire_ I mean Country. Peace. Yay love. Yay sex.

    Estimado Perezito,

    Seriously, if you read more than just the twisted headlines, you'd have a real, more informed opinion of Obama. A couple weeks back, when Hillary was caught lying about her trip to Bosnia, you didn't say shit about that! Every single time there is negative press about Hillary, for some very suspicious reason, something like this pops up in the news about Obama, and you always comment on it!!! If that's the case, tell the public about Hillary "skeletons" too!

    Perez you are so easily fooled. If you were to really read up on his opinions on gay rights you would see that he has been very outspoken about his belief that gays should have all the same rights and protections as every other American citizen. As a liberal catholic, I would hate for someone to take everything that my priest has ever said about gays and use it against me as if it is my belief. You are just contributing to the pathetic smear tactics that the Clinton campaign is using to paint him as a hateful-angry-black-man and if you knew ANYTHING or had EVER heard him speak you would know that that could not be further from the truth. PATHETIC perez

    surprise surprise a preacher is agains gay marriages, who woulda thought??? If your gonna post this, you must post about ALL the men of the cloth that presidents and candidates get "advice" from. Don't you realize that Hilary Clinton as a history of conservative voting??? She is NOT going to pursue health care for all, she's a liar. Her husband never did, so what makes you think she will? It is a simple fact that to make a law you need a majority. It's highly unlikely that that the majority of conservative democrats and republicans with sponteneously support gay marriage, it's just a fact of life. We don't live in a Utopia Perez.

    n the poll, 59 percent of Democrats said that Obama would have the better chance as the Democratic nominee in November, compared to 30 percent for Hillary Clinton. Among Republicans, 64 percent said their presumptive nominee, John McCain, would have a better chance to win against Clinton, while only 22 percent said Obama would be the weaker Democrat.

    The poll, released today, also found that 56 percent of Democrats believe that the drawn-out nomination battle is doing "more harm than good," while 35 percent believe it is doing "more good than harm." A growing drumbeat of Obama backers, most notably Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont, have urged Clinton to consider dropping out for the party's good.

NOT a one-side conversation! i'm a women but i REFUSE to vote for mrs. clinton. she has this sense of entitlement that makes me sick! if someone believes they are owed SOMEthING, & once they get it, they do absolutely nothing! she definitely shouldn't win. i reallydont care if its her last shock, she's kinda up there too. so SAD. we talking about making AMERICA better, not worse. perez if ur going to post something post both sides. your gay, we get it & dammit i LOVE YOU =)! but not EVERYONE is out to get gay people. my granny is one of the MOST closed minded people i know, but I LOVE HER, and I'LL do anything for her. so am i racist, homophobe, that judges people on the regular? nope! but i keep her complany & when she saids something outrages, i ignore her. he's black, do u really think he's going to judge others while being judged himself. Mrs. clinton is using her last bit of money & effort to ruin his name, she needs to try harder! its getting dirty and the smell is coming right from her front DOOR!

    First, it's no surprise that a religious leader is homophobic. Just because Obama seeks his religious council doesn't make him homophobic by association. Secondly, Rev. Meeks is completely right about the state of racial relations in the U.S. Why is it that white people are afraid to hear they've continued to put down all non-white races since the creation of the U.S. when that's the reality? It's time that non-white races and women had equality and putting Obama or Clinton in office would certainly be a good step towards real change.

Obamas views are NOT homophobic, even though he might know ONE PERSON whos believes and thoughts is. So PLEASE stop bringing this up over and over again, you just come off as bitter.

    Perez, you're so one sided when discussing politics. This subject matter is far more important than your typical fare, and should be handled as such. You clearly are backing Clinton, which is fine. But don't try to pretend like you're discovering dissappointing information about her opposing candidate. Where are all of the skeletons that Clinton has hidden in her closet? Why aren't you writing similar articles about her? She surely has some, being a politician. Please don't mask your favoritism in transparent "reporting" and highly circumstantial "evidence" that supports your own opinion. Your readers are not that oblivious. If you want to blog about politics, don't treat it like some unimportant celebrity feud. Be responsible with these issues, or stick to what you're good at…drawing coke coming out of the noses of celebrities.

Do we really want someone running our country who is either a big liar, or doesn't know the difference between being under sniper fire and NOT.) Geez Perez. Clinton is a dishonest poser. She's always doing those crazy eyes b/c she's searching for her next lie.

    Well, Perez, what do you expect? Obama, being a Christian man, it only makes sense that the Pastor that he is aquainted with is against homosexualtiy. He's not starting a malitia. He's not preaching hate. He's preaching that it's a sin. The Bible tells us that it is wrong. You know that, which I'm guessing is why you are constantly bashing Christianity. Get one thing straight… not all Christians are as you would put it "Homophobes" and not all "Homophobes" are Christians. And why is this such a big deal anyway? Barack is not a gay hater or a gay basher or whatever it is that you are accussing him of? I mean, come on; Is this the best we can do? We can't find anything wrong with a person so we start judging them based on the people they know? And anyway Perez, isn't a black man stating his distaste for the way that america has treated the black man the same as you ( a gay man) posting nasty messages about people who have made nasty comments or commited a crime against gays? Pick your battles Perez…other than that I am huge fan, love the website!

    Re: Bateman

    Thanks, for the insight Bateman. Of course, he's the "poor black messiah" and there's a "rich black messiah", "chinese messiah", a "white messiah", a "female messiah". I don't think you're a paranoid conspiracy theorist. You're actually very "smart".

    If you had any english lessons in high school you would understand what Rev. Meeks meant by white mayors as slave masters and preachers as house ni**ers. He means that rather than help their people, some black preacher/politicians are so glad to be included in the D.C. fraternity type society that doesn't like to deal with the needs of poverty-stricken (which are disproportionatly black in many areas of the US). Kinda like sell-outs,,,,,like yourself.

    I am an ex-Hillary supporter and now firmly support Obama. I have been harbouring serious doubts about Hillary for a while but the Bosnia sniper lie absolutely did it for me. I truly believe Hillary Cinton has a personality disorder of the narcissistic type which precludes her from holding high office. She has become an embarrassment to many women.

    A hyper-sensitive public already expects politicians' records to be spotless– does that now extend to everyone with whom they associate? Seriously, 20 years ago– before the onslaught of overzealous bloggers, voyeuristic media outlets, and general obsession with the personal lives of public figures– this wouldn't have been even a blip on the radar. The only reason we pay attention to such ridiculously far-reaching criticism is because we have the means to find it and bring it to the surface. The only reason people CARE is because the media, for lack of anything substantial to share, tells us we are SUPPOSED to care. Thanks for perpetuating the cycle, Perez.
    For someone who was so critical about STAR having their facts correct re: Brangelina's supposed marriage, if you're presenting yourself as some sort of half-assed political blogger, you'd better be sure you're getting the facts straight and reporting them from both sides. Of course…my expectations aren't that high.

    BARACK THE VOTE!

    OBAMA HATES EVERYONE BUT BLACK PEOPLE!! He thinks we owe him and all black people. He wants to GIVE black people $1500/month in a court case to rectify slaves!! It any black person can proove they are of slave decendants they would be entitled to this money, they could all live off that and never try to work again. Think of the financial burden on our country. He wants us to be ashamed for being white and punish us. He stated that by 2010, black folks will be in the same income bracket as hard working white Americans. Sounds like blacks will be hired before whites under his hopes, this IS racism! White folks in this country have always worked hard for what they have, black folks believe they are entitled to it because somewhere down in their family tree possibly was a slave. How about blacks being mad at the country that took them from Africa, it wasn't America. And I'm sure most blacks would rather live in America then in Africa, Africa has no welfare. Obama is just a racist pig!

    585

    look at all you obama-bots, it's like you been programmed to repeat the same shit he is saying. All I can hear from him and his cult followers is chanting "change, change, change…" How about an actual plan not just a mere promise. I said it a long time ago, if he was white, would we even hear about him????
    You know that most african -americans are voting based on color. Come on!!! And the whites joined to not be racists. OBAMA IS THE PRODUCT OF WHITE MAN'S GUILT… what a shame!
    I always suspected that he was a radical closeted racist.

    Go ahead, tell me I am a racist. But I am not, I call it like I see it.

    Well, then, your choice is between someone who has associated with known homophobes but personally supports gay right or someone who has deliberately sought out people such as the Rev. Rod Parsley who was instrumental in passing Ohio's "Defense of Marriage" Amendment and who called gays "worse than barnyard animals" and who also does NOT support gay rights lest he offend people like Parsley and their evangelical minions whose votes he desperately want. The latter of course is John McCain. You choose. Those are your two candidates.

    So your talking crap about a man who's ministers are against gays when we have a whole government that keeps voting against this, what happened to gay marriages???? In 2006 when the senate voted on making an amendment on the consitution regarding marriage clinton voted NOOOOO you see your supporting someone that's against it. Instead of talking smack about someone because of what some of their friends think you should be promoting to get Bush and Cheney out of office they have seriously abused their power, government and the people yet they are still in power we get a guy out for getting a blow job and a man that has killed thousands (4,000+) people (soldiers + civilians) gets nothing we should be getting he's stupid ass out of office and elect a government that truly works for the people not their special interest. you should be talking about flip flop McCain so that hopefully he won't be elected and I say hopefully because come on Bush was in office not only once but twice and this guy took all of our liberties (several acts passed one been the patriot act) away yeah were fighting to give people freedom which we don't even have ourselves, this war will not be over until be can understand the peopel we are fighting.
