Barry and the Pastor… No, The Other Pastor

James MeeksImage from WikipediaIt’s “Spiritual Mentor” Problem Squared!

Just as the dust surrounding Sen. Barack Obama’s long-term association with controversial minister Rev. Jeremiah Wright has begun to settle comes new reports of the democratic presidential hopeful’s connection to another racially divisive public figure—the stridently homophobic Rev. James T. Meeks, an Illinois state senator who also serves as the pastor of Chicago’s 22,000 member strong Salem Baptist Church.

Described in a 2004 Chicago Sun Times article as someone Barack Obama regularly seeks out for “spiritual counsel”, James Meeks, who will serve as an Obama delegate at the 2008 Democratic convention in Denver, is a long-time political ally to the democratic frontrunner.

This guy also brings Rezko back into play. There’s still his association with unrepentant Weather Underground bombers to be let loose on the public.

For a guy who has been caterwauling about how his “judgement” trumps his lack of experience, it’s going to be interesting to see how he explains his decision to seek these people out as his counselors to Joe and Jane Sixpack. In the case of Meeks, he’s going to have to really shuck and jive the folks on Christopher Street and in San Fran’s Castro who may have been willing to give Barry a pass on his association with Wright, but this guy?
