Now that we all have been saturated with with the coverage on Obama's controversial preacher the Rev Wright and his "over the top" message topics, I would like to know if your own preacher has ever put his foot in his mouth and said some things in his sermon that you considered over the top and hyper-controversial. If so, did you stay there anyway? Did you leave the church? My Pastor for about ten years when I lived in Pa. would make Rev Wright look like Norman Vincent Peale. Some of his more controversial statements: "Any woman that wears pants is a transvestite". How do you like that one? "I dont believe that man went to the moon. It was all staged." Big Hollywood production." This one almost made me renounce my membership. I could go on, but for all the dumb things he has said the man had a heart of gold and was the most energetic man I ever saw. Still going at it at 75. If I ever decided to run for public office (God forbid!) would these old tapes come back to haunt me? What kinds of controversial things have you heard from the pulpit over the years could surface later and spoil your chance at becoming President of the United States?
