The insanity from Hannity is despicable. In a segment before their Obama smear, they complained about James Cameron's documentary and called it another attack against Christians. The very next segment they attack Obama's church and faith. Some fool named Erick Rush wrote the column and never even went into Obama's church. So which faith is the right faith?

COLMES: You don't even know what they do there. You're basing this on a web site that you've read. Never having actually been at the actual church or ever having asked Barack Obama something about his faith, something which he's talked about quite extensively. (transcript below the fold)

Mr. Rush, it's Alan Colmes. I have a question. Are you questioning Barack Obama's Christianity?

RUSH: Yes.

COLMES: Who are you to do that?

RUSH: Anyone just the same as anyone else who can make a discernment about someone's faith.

COLMES: What right do you have to question somebody else's faith?

RUSH: I'm not questioning -- well...

COLMES: OK, I did say -- I did said.

RUSH: I did say I was questioning it. I'm questioning it because if when I visited his web site, I saw more references to politics, Afrocentrism.

COLMES: Not his web site. It's his church's web site. It's his church, the church's web site, not Barack Obama's web site.

RUSH: Well, that's his faith.

COLMES: Is he responsible for that web site?

RUSH: Is he responsible for the web site? No. But he's a member of the church.

COLMES: Have you ever been to that church?

RUSH: No, I've never been to that church.

COLMES: Do you think you might be more acquainted with what to do if you actually went there first?

RUSH: More acquainted? Possibly, possibly not. Look, he can worship in a coven if he wants to.

COLMES: He's not worshipping in a coven. It's a Christian church.

RUSH: My point is that he -- that their doctrine is divisive, and if he's going to be a member of an African separatist sort of a movement, that pledges allegiance.

COLMES: Are you suggesting Barack Obama is an African separatist?

RUSH: If he's not, he's missing out on a darn good chance to be one is what I'm saying.

COLMES: Is he one or isn't he? Is that your accusation?

RUSH: No. I'm not -- I'm not accusing him of being a separatist.

COLMES: Then what's the point?

RUSH: Then what's the point? The point is that the doctrine waxes separatist.

COLMES: It's a Christian church. It's clear to Christian church. I think it's quite presumptuous and arrogant for anybody to question somebody else's faith. And you've never been to that church.

You don't even know what they do there. You're basing this on a web site that you've read. Never having actually been at the actual church or ever having asked Barack Obama something about his faith, something which he's talked about quite extensively.

RUSH: Their web site is representative of them. That's why it's out there. Their pastor puts writings on it which are representative of them. That's why it's out there.
