Quick Takes: New You May Have Missed


Klein-Aaron

The pastor is a practitioner of Black Liberation Theology and is close to the Nation of Islam and its leader, Louis Farrakhan. He has been a guest lecturer at Obama’s former church, Trinity United Church.

Obama’s association with Pfleger was partially documented during the 2008 presidential campaign. However, a review of Obama’s record as a state senator reveals a deeper connection than has been reported. He, in fact, partnered with Pfleger and other Black Liberation Theology leaders back in 2001 to push Senate Bill 375, “The Traffic Stops Statistics Study Act,” which required all law Illinois enforcement agencies to compile data on the race of motorists in traffic stops.

Obama identified Pfleger in a 2004 interview with the Chicago Sun-Times as a key source of spiritual guidance.

The Chicago Tribune reported that Pfleger has given money to Obama’s campaigns and that as a state legislator Obama directed at least $225,000 towards social programs at Pfleger’s church, which is tied to Farrakhan.

During his 2008 campaign, Obama flew Pfleger to Iowa to host one of several interfaith forums for the campaign.
