OMG! Obama tied to (gasp!) UNITARIANS!
Advertisements [?]
I look at these far-right Web sites from time to time -- just to keep tabs on what the true wing nuts are saying. Usually, I don't link to them here, because I don't want to give them the "clicks." But this is so over the top that I could not resist. This is awful in more ways than I can get into here. What stands out for me is the implication Obama's past association with Unitarians is cause for suspicion.

From the article:

While Obama's membership as an adult in the controversial Trinity United Church of Christ has received widespread media attention, almost nothing has been reported about his Sunday school attendance at First Unitarian, a far-left activist church that may have helped provide the president's initial political education.

First Unitarian, a member of the Unitarian Universalist denomination, served as a sanctuary for draft dodgers and was strongly tied to the Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, during the time Weatherman radical Bill Ayers was a leader in that organization. The Weathermen was an offshoot of the SDS.
