For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Obama-Ayers: The Rest Of The Story

At a recent McCain event someone commented how unfair and biased the MSM is in sending so many reporters to Alaska to dig up dirt on Governor Palin, when they ought to be investigating the relationship between Barack Hussein Obama and Weather Underground founder, William Ayers (currently teaching at the University of Illinois @ Chicago and spreading his Marxist views, much to my chagrin). For those of you who haven't heard, the Weather Underground was a home-grown terrorist organization that planted bombs at the Pentagon, US Capitol, and police stations during the 1960's in order to stop the Vietnam war. Obama chaired the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) from 1995 to 1999, which was the board on which Ayers also served.

Stanley Kurtz of the Wall Street Journal plowed through tall stacks of archival material to study the connection between Obama and Ayers to see if Obama's claim that Ayers was merely "a guy who lives in my neighborhood," and "not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis." is true, or if there was much more to it than Obama claims. As you might have already guessed, there was much more to their relationship. You might also be interested in knowing that they were trying to promote radical activism among young students via the CAC, too. Read the whole illuminating article HERE.
