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 th ...[text shortened]... e 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!
