Obama: My Pastor And My Faith

Obama sits in a church pew From Huffpo. Bill "I'll talk about lynching any time I want" O'Reilly (yeah) has been having what back in Ohio we call conniption fits** over some statements made by the soon-to-retire pastor of Obama's local church. I'm not sure how Obama could be more direct about this:

I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy. I categorically denounce any statement that disparages our great country or serves to divide us from our allies. I also believe that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it's on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. In sum, I reject outright the statements by Rev. Wright that are at issue....

I wonder if O'Reilly will try to spin...oh nevermind. I forgot for a split second who Bill O'Reilly is, who he works for, and what his job is. Bless his heart.
