I guess he wants to retire to a safe neighborhood.

Other stories list the price of the house as up to $1.6 million.

Guess the Black neighborhoods were ‘tooo ghetto “.

Wish I could play the Race Card into a multi million dollar sweetheart deal like that...but then, I;m just a typical white person.

I guess Rev. Wright was the kind of preacher who took the collection plate money, tossed it in the air and said “what ever God catches is his, what ever falls to the ground is mine...”

Barak Obama said on “the View” that his church was just like any other United Church. If that were true, why isn’t Rev. Wrights pension the same as any other united Church ministers?
I can only guess that his salary while he was preaching wasn’t in keeping with the United Churches policies either.

Must need a $1.6 million dollar, 10,400sqft house inside a gated community so he can better understand the problems a poor black man experiences? (see video)

I was looking at your web page, at your section on green collar jobs. Green collar jobs have been a priority in WA State for a few years. The problem is that the tech schools require two years of algebra for admittance. The idea is to train college qualified students to do manual labor jobs because the private industry jobs just aren’t available and an over educated workforce is not a happy workforce.

I am not sure he is a "True Black Man" He is even lighter than Obama.

Also noted on that show that when he was asked about Wright he said something to the effect that if he’d heard “those” comments he would have felt uncomfortable staying there.

That statement hardly equates to leaving the church..

I suppose it depends on state laws, but I can tell you that even an adjacent piece of property owned by a church is not automatically tax exempt, unless it is used for religious purposes. Now, I suppose he could do a home service of some sort once in a while, so who knows.

Muslims are taking over Tinley Park to an alarming extent. It will be ripe pickings for the Reverend Wrong in several ways, I'm sure.

I'm pinging someone who knows this southwestern Chicago suburb very well.

Don't go away, hah.

Reverend Wright moves to Whiteyville. I love it!

Jeremiah Wright even looks like a white person, so he’ll fit right in.

Don't want to sound bigoted here but

that's their intention/their defense against truth being spoken - put a wall around the lies and anyone who enters that wall or tries to expose the lies is given a label - bigoted. It's the same w/homosexuality, etc. Protect the sin with man made laws.

Rev J Wright’s mother was the vice-principal (discipline officer) for the most academic girls’ public high school in Philly. His father was a pastor, and he went to the male equivalent of the school where his mother taught. Both were majority white schools. They lived in the area called Germantown - large homes and tree-lined streets.

His career and now Obama’s are the choice to be race hustlers.

What Obama believes in is class envy and redistribution of wealth. The collapse of the capital markets would suit him just fine. Then the government would have to move in and restructure everything without the CEOs and top management. Obama would like to take over the Spitzer jihad against Wall Street giants.

“Hate America” must be a hot selling commodity. Don't want to sound bigoted here but "those people" make me sick to my stomach.

If by "those people" you mean hypocritical haters who take from the poor (in God's name) and build mansions on this earth, you're not a bigot - you're speaking the truth.

If by "those people" you mean well educated, privileged black ministers who teach hatred because it sells, you would not be a bigot, you'd be speaking the truth.

I suggest that you identify a subset of the population with a shared psychopathology and then found a cult to exploit it. Not that there seems to be anything wrong with that.

Everyone should read the comments after the story. There were some good ones, including the person who said some of his tax money probably went to pay public assistance for the people who paid into the church.

Also, one person mentioned that a house in that neighborhood ought to cost more than $1 million, and that something was fishy about it.

Then there were the usual blind, idiots who said Rev. Wright was speaking the truth and was a saint. How deluded can people be?

Interesting website that gives details of the financial transactions.

It appears that the home occupied by the Rev up to now was no shack.

>3900 sq ft, .38 acre, @585.000.

http://webofdeception.com/#wright

Also in the information is mention of a Trinity Landscape and [something] corporation; President: Jeremiah A Wright, same address as Trinity UCC.

I think this “rev” is as sleazy as they come.
I also think that his “neighborhood” connections are what launched Barry into the world of Chicago politics.
