The Wright Way

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Great commentary from Eugene Robinson:
We all have our crosses to bear. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright has become Barack Obama's.

I'm sorry, but I've had it with Wright. I would never try to diminish the service he performed as pastor of his Chicago megachurch, and it's obvious that he's a man of great charisma and faith. But this media tour he's conducting is doing a disservice that goes beyond any impact it might have on Obama's presidential campaign.

The problem is that Wright insists on being seen as something he's not: an archetypal representative of the African American church. In fact, he represents one twig of one branch of a very large tree.
And despite how hard the UCC's national office tries to support Wright, I suspect that most UCC members are rightfully embarrassed by him. His antics at the Press Club made him look like the court jester, not a prophet "speaking truth to power".

Apparently Robinson's not the only one.

Much of the Left is ready to throw JW off the train/under the bus.

Here's a link:

You must have a different copy of the transcript.

The one I have does show "a prophet "speaking truth to power"."

A "prophet" speaking "truth to power"? You must be joking. Maybe Satan's truth. This man is no Christian. Rev. Wright's rantings are frighteningly familiar to the hate being spewed by radical Islam.

I am still scratching my head in wonder about why Obama didn't leave Trinity, or admonish Wright. Maybe he believes him.
