Delaware Dem Subscribed to Rev. Wright's Black "Theology"

He tries to suggest he's a fiscal moderate but his record is repeatedly raising taxes. We heard he had described himself as a bearded Marxist in his younger days. But this?! The American Spectator on the candidate for Joe Biden's old Senate seat:

Chris Coons, the freshly minted Democrat selected as Tea Party favorite and Republican nominee Christine O'Donnell's opponent in the Delaware U.S. Senate race traveled to Africa in the 1980s -- emerging as a committed leftist after volunteering for an organization supporting Black Liberation Theology.

The controversial religious philosophy espoused by radical left-wing activist James Cone and President Obama's one-time spiritual mentor the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Black Liberation Theology is an off-shoot of liberation theology, a Marxist-driven interpretation of Christianity.

And the liberal media -- alarmed at O'Donnell's success and busily running all manner off stories designed to portray her as a right-wing crazy -- has suddenly gone missing on Coons. [snip]

James Cone's influence on the leadership of SACC was discussed in "James Cone's Legacy in Africa: Confession as Political Praxis in the Kairos Document," a paper written by O.U. Kalu, a Research Associate at the University of Pretoria, when he studied at the McCormick Theological Seminary in -- yes -- Chicago, Illinois. (A .pdf of the paper is available here.)

McCormick, where Cone's South African admirer Kalu apparently wrote his paper, has played delighted host to -- yes -- the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Indeed, not only has McCormick hosted Wright from its podium, it has been advertising a book that includes a Wright sermon in a book Preaching with Sacred Fire: An Anthology of African American Sermons, 1750-present. And, small world, the Seminary has recently been advertising a September 16th book signing -- mere days ago -- for Preaching with Sacred Fire. Where? Wait for it.

The Trinity UCC Church in Chicago.

More politics based on hate. Hope significantly missing this time around.

(Oh, but the TEA partiers are the crazy ones.)

More media malpractice.

More. On Coons, purging political opponents. Abuse of power.

More on the ludicrous media attack on O'Donnell here, here, and on media and Obama malpractice here.
