    Civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson defended Monday controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright, saying that it was a “source of pain” to see him criticized in the media. “I know it’s a source of pain for me to see him used as an object of degradation and manipulated the way he’s been used the media as if he’s some sort of enemy of the state. It’s not fair and it’s not true,” said Jackson on MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown.” “It pains me to see him used as an object of degradation.” Jackson said that Wright had developed an influential ministry, one that...

    Yeah, good point. Isn’t it depressing when politicians try to demagogue what’s essentially an economic issue? I can just picture the heads nodding at MSNBC. I’ll say this for you, champ: You’ve got a lot of nerve. Watch to the end for some sweet, sweet bonus material on Rev. Wright, whose more radical tendencies The One naturally never ever had an inkling of.

    Wright's role among topics of 'Phenomenon' It was at the end of May last year, about one week before Barack Obama had sealed the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, that Daphene McFerren sent a letter to Rev. Jeremiah Wright. McFerren, the director of the University of Memphis' Benjamin L. Hooks Institute for Social Change, was already planning a conference for April of 2009 that would examine the impact of Obama's historic candidacy. She explained her ambitions to Wright and invited him to come and speak. Less than a week later, Wright accepted, agreeing to the speaking fee of $4,000 that McFerren...

    In his speech on race, Sen. Barack Obama tried to explain away his longtime minister's denunciations of America by saying that for blacks of his generation, memories of "humiliation and doubt and fear have not gone away." But an examination by Newsmax.com of the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.'s background reveals that Obama's characterization of his former pastor's upbringing is mythology. Described by Obama as his sounding board and mentor for more than two decades, Wright was born in Philadelphia in 1941. He lived in a racially mixed section called Germantown, which consisted of homes on broad tree-lined streets...
  • Revered Jeremiah Wright, "former Muslim" (?!)

    THe New Republic ^ | March 07 | Ryan Lizza
    Today I came across this year-old, largely biographical article about Barack Obama. It reads as though Lizza relied on Obama for large chunks of the piece, with other material coming from his books and interviews with those who knew him. About 2/3's down the page, I came across this astonishing nugget: After many lectures like this, Obama decided to take a second look at Wright's church. Older pastors warned him that Trinity was for "Buppies"--black urban professionals--and didn't have enough street cred. But Wright was a former Muslim and black nationalist who had studied at Howard and Chicago, and Trinity's...
  • Obama Should Leave the Congregation that Applauded Wright's Hate! (Vanity)

    Obama's excuses for not leaving his church are: 1) He was never present when his pastor made remarks like those America has now heard (questionable). 2) Pastor Wright has retired, so there is no need to leave now. But wait a second.... when I watched those videos I saw two things that were EQUALLY objectionable - the comments the pastor was making AND the enthusiastic applause he received from the congregation for making those comments. The pastor may have retired, but I'm sure that most of the congregants who applauded the pastor's comments are still there. So putting aside Pastor...

    You say you are devoted to Reverend Wright because he brought you to Christ. I can only imagine how powerful a relationship that forges. But, my imperfect understanding of the Christian Faith tells me you can do him an equally magnificent service: You can help bring him back to Christ. Show him redemption and salvation lie not in the satisfaction of doing little dances in a pulpit while you slander good and decent people. Teach him that great leadership and Christian love abjures the very filth – and I pick that word deliberately – that he spews on an apparently...
