The LGBT Record's Obama Watch on Rev Meeks

Obama's third spiritual advisor... the "Virulently Homophobic" Rev (and Illinois State Senator) Meeks.
Another person Obama says he seeks out for spiritual counsel is state Sen. James Meeks, who is also the pastor of Chicago's Salem Baptist Church. The day after Obama won the primary in March, he stopped by Salem for Wednesday-night Bible study.

"I know that he's a person of prayer," Meeks says. "The night after the election, he was the hottest thing going from Galesburg to Rockford. He did all the TV shows, and all the morning news, but his last stop at night was for church. He came by to say thank you, and he came by for prayer."

Obama admits it's not easy for politicians to talk about faith.
It looked like an ordeal for Keith Flannery here with Meeks.

O Lord, give it up! It's way past BORING already? Haven't you heard of the law of diminishing returns? All the bogey men you can dredge up now, and there in NO END to them, are lighter than a flea in their impact.

What a pitiful excuse for politics.
