And what does this have to do with Spirituality? or Spirit?

Obama told Jesse not to tell any one about the support he was giving him early in his campaign accrding to a report from WBAI in 2008

who cares what white liberals say about Obama, and if they state facts that som desire to disbeleive then get the same facts from a brother

Surveys show that white evangelical Protestants are roughly five times as likely to agree with the tea party movement as to disagree with it (44 percent vs. 8 percent). So its not surprising to find in some tea party enclaves such proposals as bans on Sharia law, extreme anti-abortion sentiment, advocacy for Christian prayer in public schools, and opposition to equal rights for LGBT citizens, alongside the central issues of lowering taxes and diminishing the power of government to regulate corporations.
On the contrary, OWS is more spiritually and culturally pluralistic. Every movement for social change that has really made a difference has included the power of God, the power of the spirit and the power of people of conscience, said the Rev. Stephanie Sellers, one of the Episcopalian protest chaplains praying with demonstrators at different OWS sites.
If Moses or Jesus or Mohammed were alive in this day and time theyd be out there guiding and inspiring and teaching these young people, said Imam Al-Hajj Talib Abdur-Rashid, who helped organize a Muslim prayer service in New York and believes religious groups have amplified the movements power.
A public letter supporting OWS and signed by spiritual leaders and teachers of meditation drawn from various spiritual traditions stated: We are particularly inspired by the nonviolent tactics of this movement, its methods of self-governance and its emergent communities founded in open communication (general assemblies, the human microphone, the inclusion of diverse voices, etc). These encampments are fertile ground for seeing our inherent wisdom and our capacity for awakening. Most importantly, we believe that individual awakening and collective transformation are inseparable. .
At some OWS rallies ministers of Christian denominations have held services and prayer meetings. Others have a sacred Space tent that welcomes those who come in peace regardless of religion. There are meditations on compassionate action, discussions of Old and New Testament inspiration for the movements ethics, and statues of the Buddha alongside pictures of Jesus. Muslims kneel and pray to Mecca. Some held Yom Kippur services.
The tea party can be described as fundamentalist in both its formal political agenda and its evangelical religious basis, with firm, simply stated beliefs and goals in both areas. Its primary platform plank is tax reduction which it believes, with a crusading fervor, provides a true north compass point for national salvation.
OWS, while having a core of agreement in its opposition to the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over broad-based inclusive democracy, is less doctrinaire, both ideologically and spiritually. It rejects hierarchical authority using a consensus-based collective decision-making tool known as a peoples assembly. It does not favor any particular religion or religion in general. This is consonant with its affinity with similar groups internationally making it less chauvinistic than the tea party.
Divergent qualities of spiritual consciousness animate particular ideologies. This is vividly apparent in these contemporary movements.

The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.
