It's what you get when you sue a ho.

Don't act so surprised. Religion is big business. Especially if you're preaching to a nominee for a Presidential election.

This is still news?

Oh, its Fox

Well I'm just shocked and outraged and... shocked and stuff.
 
2008-03-27 08:18:17 PM  
Wait. Is the right criticizing a religious figure for his extravagant lifestyle? Well, damn, nice to finally have you guys on board.
 
2008-03-27 08:19:48 PM  
Shafted by the powers that be once again. Alas.

Powers, why not allow subby's -ahem- gifts to be shown in their original brilliance? You can't defy the U.S. bell curve.

Damn it. The comments are moderated at the news site. Maybe I'll post something more... moderate.

He's retiring to suburban Chicago?
Hell, I wouldn't want to live there, let alone retire there.

And if I was forced to live there, it would take a much better house than that to lure me.

Don't be too happy. The right have yet to criticize a second household for being wasteful of energy.

I'm surprised more religions don't preach poverty and humility
 
2008-03-27 09:53:55 PM  
No offence to Subby but that's a pretty typical looking house/McMansion where I live.
And trust me, I'm no fan of the closet racist/plastic politician, Obama. I'm just saying, of all the things to attack the guy with, this is weak.
Have you tried his proposed policies?
They're commulicious.

The business of hate and racial division has treated him well.
 
2008-03-27 09:56:18 PM  
Looks like a house that "a typical white person" would live in. To borrow the phrase from Senator Obama as he described his grandmother...

2008-03-27 09:58:47 PM  
Leave it to Fox news to focus on the house a former paster to a candidate will live in...in the future.

"Coming up, we've learned that Reverend Wright sh*ts in a toilet costing TWICE as much as the average toilet, and some people are shocked. We'll hear what you think about it, next on Fox News..."

bmr68: The business of hate and racial division has treated him well.

As well as the business of being in the military and being on the board of directors of a nursing school, but yeah, he's just a hatemonger with deep pockets.

Not like Pat Robertson, he makes his money the red-blooded American way: Milkshakes that help you cheat death (new window).

"At least looking at it from a public document standpoint, there's clearly not a problem that jumps out or some sort of wrongdoing," Siegel said.

but we're going report it like there is.

Tinley Park? Why the crap did he select that suburb?

Right, because if it were McCain spiritual adviser of 20 years preaching the extreme hate that Wright is, CNN would made it a story for just a day. Right?
 
2008-03-27 10:57:07 PM  
So he's sticking it to da man by moving in next to him?
 
2008-03-27 10:58:10 PM  
Oh Wright is his name, I thought he went by Obama’s Former Pastor.
 
2008-03-27 10:58:21 PM  
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Fox.
Fox news.
Complaining that a minister has lots of money.

Fox.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Just like the Jeffersons. I see a Fox Reality Show in the works.

Call me when Fox starts going after Benny Hinn and Peter Popoff's palaces.
 
2008-03-27 11:01:10 PM  
First, it looks like the church will own the house, not the reverend

Second, I know clergymen living in luxury is not exactly laudable but . . . why is this receiving so much press? Am I suppose to think this reflects poorly on Obama somehow?
 
2008-03-27 11:01:27 PM  
And this somehow reflects badly on Obama?

1. Spend 36 years telling people how much you hate whitey
2. Donations come rolling from people being kept down by whitey
3. profit... used to buy BIG house next door to whitey

They wouldn't report it at all. Surely I don't need to cite Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson's endorsements and advising of G.W. Bush. Nor do I need to post links to their quotes, either. The MSM politely ignored those two hateful sacks of monkey pus. Fortunately for them, they're not spooky, scary black men.

Well, this particular religious figure makes a big point of criticizing materialism and "middle-classism", so there's a sizable load of hypocrisy in his case.
 
2008-03-27 11:05:08 PM  
A $1.6 million home at his age, living in Chicago? Not as unlikely as you might think. He probably put 20% down on a 2 million home which is only a couple hundred grand. For all you farkers crying about personal responsibility it looks like he did pretty well pulling up those boot straps. Being oppressed by all that racism and everything...

Just the Pope and a handful of Cardinals. The Bishops and Priests have to settle for 72 virgin boys when they get to heaven.

They would do worse if it happened?

Come on, unless you can see into alternate universes, do you realize how lame that argument sounds?
