    It seems the media will just not give up focusing on Rev. Wright. As I have been looking at personalities like Sean Hannity and others on Fox (forgive me , Lord), they seem to relish in these statements from his sermons. But are his sermons any more outrageous than the oracles of doom from other prophets in the Bible, namely that other Jeremiah. Is there not a single media commentator who is willing to say that the job of the minister is not to run a popularity contest but rather to speak the message of God?

    Corporate media pundits don't say much that is useful. They can talk about Rev. Wright's "anger" or his "ego-mania" or his "refusal to give up the lime-light" or his "Anti-Americanism"... but they will not discuss the veracity of what he says. Everything is dismissed as old-school "black anger"- something inexplicable and irrational, based in nothing... and "something Obama has moved past..."

    personally, I have lost respect for Obama as he has denounced Rev. Wright. as a minister of a Christian God, Rev. Wright has only regurgitated a basic tenet of the Christian Bible: violence begets violence... or, in other words, the US cannot use war and terrorism in other countries without inviting war and terrorism on itself.

    but in the present state of media in the US, the idea that the US shouldn't use war and terrorism as political devices is derided as "Anti-American."

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright for President!

    If the "message of God" is that the US Government infected our citizens with AIDS, or that we deserved what happened on 9/11, I'd agree with you. But God did not give Wright that message--which makes him a false prophet, a liar, and/or a racist, Most assuredly, NOT a reverend.

    Here, just for interest, is a commentary on the prophet Jeremiah by Rabbi Moshe Reiss, Ph.D. It's long, but--

    You got me to thinkin about all the parallels between me and Rev. Wright. We are the same skin color. We are both vilified and misunderstood. We make sense except to the playa haters. We love Jesus.

    Hope you don't share the other Rev Wright qualities:
    America-hater
    Liar
    IQ of a carrot...

    Sounds like both of you have some truly loathsome qualities. I shall pray for you both to mend thy ways.

    How do you know God didn't tell him to say these things? Do you know God's mind so well? What happened to God being inexplicable?

    It sounds like something straight out of the OT. Prophets frequently went around telling the people that they were damned by God or asking God to damn them.

    Don't you read the Bible? Just substitute the name of any country in place of America.
