In his Nov. 17 WorldNetDaily column, Kevin McCullough goes on a tirade against Sen. Barack Obama. Headlined "Why is Obama's evil in Rick Warren's pulpit?" and taking off on an invitation for Obama to speak at the church where the "Purpose-Driven Life" author is pastor, McCullough asks "Why would Warren marry the moral equivalency of his pulpit – a sacred place of honor in evangelical tradition – to the inhumane, sick and sinister evil that Obama has worked for as a legislator?" McCullough adds: "Warren is ready to turn over the spiritual mantle to a man who represents the views of Satan at worst or progressive anti-God liberals at best in most of his public positions on the greatest moral tests of our time."
Why is McCullough engaging in such a bizarre anti-Obama rant? He is a supporter of abortion rights and gay marriage. In McCullough's pretty little mind, this comes out as Obama's "long history of defying the intended morality of Scripture," supporting "the advance of the radical homosexual activist lobby in its pursuit to destroy traditional marriage" and "continued funding for Planned Parenthood clinics in our nation's inner cities, which are performing genocide against the populations of African Americans living there." McCullough adds that Obama "has also solidly backed the advancement of all "hate crimes" legislation, which ultimately may be used to silence clergy who believe according to their own convictions that homosexual behavior is wrong and preach so from biblical texts," but he offers no evidence that this is the case.
McCullough concludes by asking his readers to "call Rick Warren and ask him why Barack Obama's evil worldview will be given the high honor of addressing the faithful."
McCullough has previously attacked Obama. In a July 21 column, he claimed that Obama "implied that Bush wanted to take away the right of black people to cast a vote" during a speech before the NAACP. This gave him license to launch into the old right-wing talking point trope that Democrats opposed the civil rights movement, adding "This is part of what makes Barack Obama's willful misleading of the attendees to the NAACP so laughable, so sinister, so evil.
In a Nov. 5, 2004, column, McCullough wrote of one pastor's support for "Barrack [sic] Obama, who by every measure is someone who supports the radical homosexual agenda, partial-birth abortion, and even born-alive abortion."
