This guy professes to be a man of God, however after listening to several of his sermon, many of which you can find on You Tube, I found this guy to be a pompous, arrogant, offensive, hateful, insulting and intimidating. One who not only attacks Barack Obama’s inborn dignity (things he cannot change about himself), but also attacks his mother, his father, White people, Black people, anyone who might vote for Obama, etc. I sat here watching videos of his sermon with my jaw dropped, not believing what I was hearing and believe me I am not easily shocked. In one of the video clips I watched, this man (I use the term loosely) actually had the nerve to say the reason you should not trust Obama is because he had never been to jail. “You can’t trust a black man who hasn’t been to jail” is his retort.
Most notably, he called Obama a "good house negro" in one sermon, while in another, he referred to Obama as "trash" due to his mixed race heritage and accused him of being a “pimp" citing the popular viral video “I Got A Crush On Obama” as evidence. It should be noted, however, that the video was produced by “Barely Political” a private company that has no affiliation with the Obama campaign. “Barely Political” themselves clarified this fact in a subsequent video, stating, "[We] would like to make it clear: the Obama campaign had nothing to do with Obama Girl.
I will give this fool (Manning) credit for doing one positive thing and that is lighting a fire under my ass. I was getting real complacent about this election and now I am ready to put on an "Obama Mama" T-shirt and get out there and support Obama's campaign in a meaningful way. I currently talk to young people who take my courses about registering to vote and exercising that right, which is not only a privilege, but a responsibility.
Back to the matter at hand, here is a clip of one of Manning's Obama trashing sermons. What is really telling is the looks on some of his parishioners’ faces. They look like they would rather be anywhere but where they are at that moment.
