Excerpt:Â It's not what the alleged pastor Michael Pfleger, whom Barack Obama declared "a close associate, a spiritual adviser and a key source of spiritual guidance," said at Obama's now-former church â€“ it's what the people of said church did, and what they did not do, in response. What they did was to applaud, cheer and shout "amen" to Pfleger's vitriolic diatribes. What they didn't do was walk out. It isn't difficult to understand why not one congregant condemned the message spewed forth from the pulpit that day. It isn't really difficult to understand why there hasn't been a mass exodus from a place that sanctions hate-filled, anti-biblical screeds.
