Skip to comments.Who Is Jeremiah Wright? [Barak Obama's Racist and Terrorist-Supporting "Spiritual Advisor"]

He is pastor of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ and the man who led Barack Obama "from skeptic to self-described Christian," reports the New York Times. And he has some ideas and history many Americans will find troubling:
In 1984, he traveled to Cuba to teach Christians about the value of nonviolent protest and to Libya to visit Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, along with the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Mr. Wright said his visits implied no endorsement of their views. . . .
Mr. Wright preached black liberation theology, which interprets the Bible as the story of the struggles of black people, who by virtue of their oppression are better able to understand Scripture than those who have suffered less. That message can sound different to white audiences, said Dwight Hopkins, a professor at University of Chicago Divinity School and a Trinity member. "Some white people hear it as racism in reverse," Dr. Hopkins said, while blacks hear, "Yes, we are somebody, we're also made in God's image."
It was a 1988 sermon called "The Audacity to Hope" that turned Mr. Obama, in his late 20s, from spiritual outsider to enthusiastic churchgoer. . . .
While Mr. Obama stated his opposition to the Iraq war in conventional terms, Mr. Wright issued a "War on Iraq I.Q. Test," with questions like, "Which country do you think poses the greatest threat to global peace: Iraq or the U.S.?" . . .

“On the Sunday after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Mr. Wright said the attacks were a consequence of violent American policies.” [http://www.israpundit.com/2006/?p=4665]
And Romney is taking heat for being a Morman...???
Who did the raping? White plantation owners? Let's have a moment of honesty here. Whitey was nowhere in sight.
Here’s what Obama said recently at a June 4 forum, hosted by CNN and the so-called regious left’s Sojourners/Call to Renewal:
Accoding to a Washington Times article posted on June 5, “He [Obama] added there is evil in the world — as seen in the September 11 terrorist attacks — and said he sees it in the detention camp in Guantanamo and in the prisoner abuses at Abu Ghraib in Iraq.”
WOW!!! I had no idea. This Obama must be some sort of genius. When did he first find out there was evil in the world I wonder? We’re talking headlines here (well I guess the MSM would consider it). Evil in the world!!! Who’d a thunk it?
I see Hillary is doing her homework.
sounds like he should be supporting ron paul with those feelings
What a freaking idiot.
