The Revd. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s Pastor is, of course, being demonised by the hypocritical right wing/christian fundamentalist cabal which dominates American media.
Not one of the fundamentalist/fascist preachers and pundits is able to be anything near “fair” or “balanced” - or even accurate.
Their hatred for the Gospel of Jesus is palpable. They prefer a “Gospel” of Americanism.
Fundamentalists are, at best, heretics.
Please see the Revd. Jeremiah Wright’s speech to the NAACP April 27th to get an idea of how this good man is committed to the biblical Jesus.
And if this link does not work, do a Google or You-Tube search for his masterful speech.
And please do not forget that Pastor Wright’s political and religious opponents posit a Jesus who is like a white skinned, blue eyed, crew cut, all American boy. He’s probably (in their minds) a Marine, dedicated to killing all the infidel Muslims.
This perverted image is an insult to our brothers and sisters who are Marines, Muslims, or African Americans.
And it is a blasphemy against G-d,
Pastor Wright is pilloried for saying “God damn America”. I think that I’d want to say the same were I poor, homeless, unemployed or black. I’d say the same were I a mentally ill person, “warehoused” in one of our ghastly prisons.
And I’d base my words on Holy Scripture (G-d’s infallible Word) according to the right wing fundamentalrepugs.
For how does our beloved Nation stack up against the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 25, Verses 31-46? In that passage it is the Nations who are judged.
