Rev. Jeremiah Wright delivered three fiery sermons about faith, race and politics at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Charleston, West Virginia
Wright said Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas worships some other God outside of Allah and Yahweh (who are the same he says)
Obamas former pastor called Thomas Jefferson a pedophile
He sees white supremacy driving world policy
Wright condemned the U.S. military, saying, fighting for peace is like raping for virginity
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright became a household name during the 2008 presidential campaign. The fiery preacher, who was President Barack Obamas pastor for two decades, has since retired from his position at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois. However, hes still an active figure in geopolitical and faith movements, as his bizarre commentaries often offend detractors and inspire intense debate.
Last week, Wright spoke at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Charleston, West Virginia, as part of a week-long revival event. His controversial words took aim at Thomas Jefferson, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the media and plenty of other targets.
Im not divisive, the media is divisive, he said, going on to lament the soundbites he claims were unfairly used to disparage him during the 2008 campaign.
As could be expected, the three evening sermons he delivered during the revival often turned to themes and subjects much more controversial than alleged media bias.
Believers beware, Wright preached in one of his lessons. There are some conversations you will find yourselves in in which there is no communication taking place.
He went on to speak about Jesus and Pontius Pilate in John 18 in the Bible, saying that they were speaking two different languages. This sermon quickly delved into his belief that the Italian army Roman soldiers were occupying Palestinian territory.
Then, Wright found himself discussing U.S. operations in the Middle East, while also taking aim at FOX News personalities Bill OReilly and Sean Hannity.
I was in the military six years and neither Hannity or OReilly was in the military, he proclaimed. Let me tell you one thing they taught us in the United States Marine Corps fighting for peace is like raping for virginity. Those are oxymorons, but thats what we do in the name of regime change.
The controversial preacher also showed no love for Justice Thomas, as he told his audience that, though Thomas looks like them, he is worshipping some other God. He also made an intriguing comparison about the God of the Hebrew Bible and the Lord depicted in the Quran.
The god of racists is not the God of righteousness. The god of the greedy is not the God of grace. The god of Wall Street is not the God of Main Street, Wright proclaimed. Those are two different gods and I aint talking about Allah and Yahweh. Those are the same names for the same God.
He continued, taking a jab at Thomas and his Christian faith.
And Im not talking about black and white some of yall think Im talking about white folk, he said. Theres a whole lot of folk who look like you who are worshipping some other God somebody shout Clarence Thomas. Hallelujah!
Wright also tackled racial issues, while waging a bizarre accusation at Thomas Jefferson.
There are politicians who are making decisions about you, about your life, about your future, about your family about your children and the real tragedy is they live in a different world from your world all together, he proclaimed. There are people in power right now who have opinions about you based on their privilege of skin color.
As he spoke about race, Wrights rhetoric intensified.
I am in the text. Pilate was European Jesus was not European. They live in a world shaped by European standards of beauty, shaped by Moynihan studies, shaped by bell curves they live in a different world from your world all together, he told the audience. They are ignorant and arrogant and these are graduates of Harvard and Yale setting policies over you based on the stupidity of David Hume Voltaire, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Thomas Jefferson a pedophile Theodore Roosevelt and a racist Supreme Court.
But he wasnt done there.
The ignorance and arrogance of white supremacy have the movers and shapers of world policy living in a different world from people of color all together, Wright raged on. And the sooner you realize that the better off youre gonna be.
Early on in this same address, while speaking about Luke 19, Wright took aim at conservatives, saying, You will not hear this passage of John 19 preached on Wall Street. You wont hear this Luke 19 Scripture exegeted in the comfortable pews of the rich folk, the greedy folk or the Tea Party praisers.
It is in this chapter that Zacchaeus, a tax collector, encounters Jesus and subsequently decides to change his ways, pledging to give half of his possessions away. Additionally, he offers to give back four times what he owes to anyone he has cheated. Clearly, the preacher sees conservatives as greedy folks.
That is called restorative justice and theology restore the stuff that the greedy stole from the needy, Wright continued.
Watch comments cut together from all three of Wrights speeches, below:
Hilarious that a “preacher” that openly worships Satan is talking about anyone worshiping “some other god” . . .
James 3:5 So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. Behold, how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire!
I think most of us worship a different god (the God) than Reverend Wright.
The Rev. Wright is only preaching what his upper class congregation wants to hear.
Obama soaked up this chit for 20 years, and got a free pass from the MSM and Johnny McLame in 2008. Maybe Romney... damn, we’re so screwed. That’s why they want Romney, in their book, Mormonism cancels Wright’s vile spew.
The drive-by media yawned and totally ignored this issue. If it had been given proper attention, ObaMarx should have lost the election.
Can you believe that some who gies to this guys “church” became president of the US? Wake up, y’all. We are in never-never land.
The ‘Reverend’ Wright sounds like he’s in the latter stages of syphilis. Another infamous Chicagoan (Al Capone) died babbling and incoherent, Wright is just getting a head start on that.
So what am I suppose to think when I see a black guy with sign that says, "No justice, no peace!"
We’re on the slippery slope, but Almighty God still give hope to those who humble themselves before Him.
Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save,
nor his ear too dull to hear.
2 But your iniquities have separated
you from your God;
your sins have hidden his face from you,
so that he will not hear.
3 For your hands are stained with blood,
your fingers with guilt.
Your lips have spoken falsely,
and your tongue mutters wicked things.
4 No one calls for justice;
no one pleads a case with integrity.
They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies;
they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.
5 They hatch the eggs of vipers
and spin a spiders web.
Whoever eats their eggs will die,
and when one is broken, an adder is hatched.
6 Their cobwebs are useless for clothing;
they cannot cover themselves with what they make.
Their deeds are evil deeds,
and acts of violence are in their hands.
7 Their feet rush into sin;
they are swift to shed innocent blood.
They pursue evil schemes;
acts of violence mark their ways.
8 The way of peace they do not know;
there is no justice in their paths.
They have turned them into crooked roads;
no one who walks along them will know peace.
9 So justice is far from us,
and righteousness does not reach us.
We look for light, but all is darkness;
for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.
10 Like the blind we grope along the wall,
feeling our way like people without eyes.
At midday we stumble as if it were twilight;
among the strong, we are like the dead.
11 We all growl like bears;
we moan mournfully like doves.
We look for justice, but find none;
for deliverance, but it is far away.
12 For our offenses are many in your sight,
and our sins testify against us.
Our offenses are ever with us,
and we acknowledge our iniquities:
13 rebellion and treachery against the LORD,
turning our backs on our God,
inciting revolt and oppression,
uttering lies our hearts have conceived.
14 So justice is driven back,
and righteousness stands at a distance;
truth has stumbled in the streets,
honesty cannot enter.
15 Truth is nowhere to be found,
and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.
The LORD looked and was displeased
that there was no justice.
16 He saw that there was no one,
he was appalled that there was no one to intervene;
so his own arm achieved salvation for him,
and his own righteousness sustained him.
17 He put on righteousness as his breastplate,
and the helmet of salvation on his head;
he put on the garments of vengeance
and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak.
18 According to what they have done,
so will he repay
wrath to his enemies
and retribution to his foes;
he will repay the islands their due.
19 From the west, people will fear the name of the LORD,
and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory.
For he will come like a pent-up flood
that the breath of the LORD drives along.[a]
20 The Redeemer will come to Zion,
to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,
declares the LORD.
21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, says the LORD. My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendantsfrom this time on and forever, says the LORD.
Scary that his views are more common than we want to believe.
Rev. Wright’s “god” hates anybody who isn’t black.
