• As always ragman pegged Jeremiah Wright.

    Maryann, you were right about Jeremiah Wright, all along and your insight is way better than mine… It was funny, because I came to my decision after Jeremiah Wright’s Washington press club statements…. I later learned Barack Obama said the very same thing. I also gave Jeremiah Wright, the benefit of the doubt…. thanks for the kind words (blush)

  • Hello Mike,
    Nice analyzation, Mike. When I read this earlier, for some reason I thought it belonged to the editor, Chris Cobler. and I was thinking what an honest guy! Well, YOU"RE the honest guy!
    Yes, this is still a problem. Judgement issues will be a problem. And it's kind of like he's damned if he condemns the guy, or he's damned if he doesn't  
    You state: "When Jeremiah Wright implied that this issue was against the black churches, I knew then Jeremiah Wright did not represent the 65,000 black churches."   I agree, and you stated it well. To me, that was a serious inaccuracy for Wright to state. 
    Well, the race goes on.

  • I believe Wright is also jealous of Obama's fame and success.  So, now he is running around trying to get in the lime light.  It is a shame and a pity.  It is like a envious parent or sibling.

  • Hey Mike, look at the credentials of Jerimiah's staff -see Otis and Ramah. This church spent decades developing  great leaders for business and govenment in Chicao and nationally. The staff is black ivy league except for two. (1) Otis, the recent heir appearent has a compromise background that would appeal to an uneducated rank and file. In PC terms this is the "democratization" of Trinity UCC Chicago. And (2) Ramah Wright has NO CREDENTIALS listed. Obiously a few years ago Jeremiah turned away from the path of building a citadel of enlighted leaders and the church indulged him.  What were the movers and shakers with decades invested in progressive Black Chicago to do? Weather the storm (Paul to Rome) and keep on keeping on (Gal 6:9).  So few in Victoria can use this info, I think I'll tweek it and post it on a national blog. Here is of interest to our kind in Victoria: the real measure of sainthood for Obama is his avoiding mentioning Hillary's goto prayer warrior Rev. Doug Coe. God give Obama strength to stay above the fray and not say "obliterate". Oh - too late. He said it when she said it.
