    And, George Bush’s golden boy and multimillionaire extrordinare Pat Robertson has blamed the US for 9/11 and called for the assignation of elected leaders of other countries. As a person of faith, I hate that in such a critical juncture in our history, this is what we are debating about. Seems like it is to be expected during important elections. Reverend Wright is simply slipping into the slot previously housed by abortion and then gay marriage.
    Plus, isn’t just a prereq for pastors to be a bit batty? As I said, in spite of my own faith, I think of the only people who should be passing litmus tests on religion should be those who will be getting tax breaks because of it.
    Be are currently in a war that is draining us militarily, financially, as well as our global creditability. And, why did we go to this ill-fated conflict? Because our president said God told him to. I think it is great W. remembered to consult God on his decision, it just would have been great if he would have also consulted some reliable intelligence, too. Instead, we plowed forward because of something that could’ve been God or could’ve been a coke flashback from the 70s.

    Yay, Jamie! Way to be smart! I lof.

    On a more serious note, I definitely agree on the point he made about the white media being scared of black people being angry about being oppressed. On a smaller scale, I see it on a daily basis as a very angry Hispanic getting angry at Mexican jokes at work and people throwing up their hands and saying, “whoa…whoa… I mean, don’t be a bitch about it.” Anger in minority communities is always likened to them being crazy because of their (enter racial stereotype here). It’s never founded upon years of oppression and the expectation of continued oppression. Nope!

    I was impressed when Obama defended his relationship with the pastor and his anger in his speech in Philly. My current disappointment stems from the fact that the more Rev. Wright talks about the truth about the African-American condition, the more is scares the public. So I feel that Obama’s denouncement of Rev. Wright’s words are simply him politicking the system in order to try and one-up Clinton, to avoid losing this race because he the public deems him “an angry black man.”
