I keep thinking about Wright's interview when he said (and I paraphrase) - that "Obama says what he says because he has to as a politician, and I say what I have to as a pastor." Since when should a pastor speak so openly and fervently about politics? The liberals are the first ones to complain about mixing the church and politics. Yet here is Wright, no one chastises him for it, everyone is afraid to be called a typical- white-racist-American. It is Wright who is mixing politics and religion!!! All his speeches that have so far been shown or are available to read are heavily laden with political context.

I have not heard him speak one about love of God, of your neighbor, family...or sacrafice, following the way of the Lord, moral living, prayerful contemplation, forgiveness, seeking the Kingdom of Heaven, etc. Things normally preached at church. He is dedicated to be a politician in a preacher's cloak and mocking us because he knows if white Americans protest too much about what he has said and is saying (in his oh, so smooth, cocky, fake intellectual, con-artist manner) they will be seen as prejudiced against the black church.

Most Americans I know didn't even know or care what went on/goes on in a Black church. It was nothing we even thought about before Wright. Wright has exposed that,at least about his church. (I have been - several times - to a local black church and there was/is no such political talk. There is prayer, love, singing and praising the Lord). Then, after Wright has done all he can to expose the goings-on in his own church and the philosophy he is clammoring about from his pulpit (not God's word for the sake of direction, he misues God's word for the sake of damnation ala G.D. America. --that, in God's words is blasphemy)!!! he acts offended. He complains that we have made this about the black church. He states this is about all black churches in general, and uses the comparison about "not picking on Momma," or something to arrouse his followers, and again was totally a comment used to inflame hatred. You are WRONG, Wright. We are only making this about him,this audacious, anti-American, hate-filled preacher because he is the person out there speaking to the country...and evidently he is loving every minute of it and not giving a "damn" about Obama.

Not that I am unhappy about the effect this has on BHO's campaign. That is Obama's problem. If Obama can't control Wright and solve the problem without lying and spinning the story...it will only prove he can't solve problems for the U.S. This is a great way to have an insight into Obama's capabilities and skill as a leader. Thanks, Wright!

Obama is rapidly approaching his last option: a Sister Soulja moment with Brother Wright.
