Rev. Wright: Barack Obama "heard me for 20 years"
Fox News ^ | 4-9-12

Posted on 04/09/2012 7:57:18 PM PDT by SJackson

After years of denying that he heard the radical preaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright as a member of Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years, there is new video of the reverend in which he says, “I’ve been preaching the same way since I was licensed to preach in 1959, ordained in 1967. Barack was in elementary school when I was ordained. CBS, ABC, MSNBC and Fox News spent $4,000 each buying 20 years of my sermons so they could hear what Barack Obama heard for 20 years.”

Thanks Rev for proving to us what anyone with two brain cells have known since Day One

A little late for a vetting, but keep going. Who knows - maybe FOX will look into the unsolved murder of Rev Wright’s choir director, Donald Young - but that would be too good to be true.

Exactly. Of course Bammy did. That’s why he went there. He associated with a “preacher” who thought like he did.

Where did Mister “I Hate Whitey” Wright get his ordination papers, by filling out a mail-away advertisement on inside cover of a matchbook from a bar featuring “female impersonators” ???

I was licensed to preach in 1959, ordained in 1967.

I hope a fellow Freeper can educate those (like myself) who are unfamiliar with the process, but that strikes me as a long gap between the two events.

After recent Rev Wright comments from the pulpit in West Va, where he claimed that Clarence Thomas worships a different God, that Yahweh and Allah are one and he same, and that Thomas Jefferson was a pedophile, my suspicions are being confirmed. He also spoke of while supremacy driving world policy. My theory is that Rev Wright is really a closeted member of Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and that he is a disciple of Soledad O’Brien's beloved Critical Race Theory.

We know Jerry, we know. And we’re all paying for it right now.

Probably means he declared himself a church and stopped paying taxes in 1959. That ordination stuff is just a technicality.

Obama’s ears look so big and pointy in the picture of him and Wright. Wright looks so pale and sort of pasty. I wonder when it was taken.

He graduated from high school in '59 and did not attend divinity school until much later. The comment “licensed to preach” seems meaningless.

If they haven’t seen the light by now, those who still worship obama will never change.

Wiki has NO record of him ever being ordained. He got a couple idiot college degrees in religion but that's all they note.

In most states, preachers get a license from the State attorney general, but these are readily available for the price of a filing fee and a mail order certificate from Crackerjack Box University. Anyone here could become a licensed preacher in a few days time.

Right now, there is no evidence this con man was ever ordained. The UCC certainly wouldn't care. They aren't even Christian.

Many are licensed before getting their education. In the Baptist faith one doesn't have to attend seminary in order to preach.

Wright was a member of farrakhan’s noi and travelled with him to libya in effort to collect a billion dollars promised by qadaffi to be used to start a religious race war in the US. He then “found Jesus” and took over trinity ucc so it could be used as Christian cover for black muslims who found it advantageous to be seen as Christians.
