Here's one minister with the courage to say what needs to be said. Rev. Dennis Sanders is a DoC minister with standing in the United Church of Christ. From "Notes from a Black Pastor"
Most African American preachers will inject social concerns into their sermons. Because of our experience with slavery, and later segregation, we tend to see Christianity in a more prophetic role, where God is on the side of the downtrodden. While I mostly preach in predominately white churches (and I tend to have a more subdude style than most black preachers) I do tend to talk about care for the poor and about the fact that God loves and accepts all regardless of color or sexual orientation. I believe that as Christians we are called to strive for justice and I do try to make that point in my sermons.
That said, the sermons by Rev. Wright are go waaaay over the top. He paints an America that I don’t recognized and throws in falsehoods and a tinge of anti-Semitism that I believe shames all African American preachers.
There is no way you can explain away Wright’s belief that 9/11 was basically “just desserts” on America, especially a few days after the event. Then there is his giving into dark conspiracy theories such as the one where the government gives black people the drugs. Or, his talk of Zionism as white racism.
There is just something wrong about what Rev. Wright is doing. It’s not that he isn’t patriotic enough as some on the right as yelping: it’s that this man seems an inverse of the late Jerry Fawell: a mean spirited preacher that uses the Bible to further his agenda.
