Rev. Jeremiah Wright cancels Texas events

Political sympathy or real threats?

DALLAS -- The Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth will go ahead with its plans to honor the Rev. Jeremiah Wright this weekend, even though Barack Obama's controversial former pastor decided to skip the ceremony.

The divinity school announced on its Web site Wednesday that it had "received notice" that Wright will not attend its 4th annual State of the Black Church Summit and awards banquet. Wright had been scheduled to appear there Saturday evening, following a luncheon panel at Paul Quinn College, a historically black school in South Dallas.

Wright has also canceled plans to speak at three services Sunday at Houston's Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church. Wright cited security concerns, the church's pastor told Houston television station KTRK and the Houston Chronicle.

Somebody in Obama's crew would take him out. He's pretty much torpedoed Obama's run for Prez...

He would LOVE to say he had gotten death threats, thus canceling his "tour".

About 200 million white voters that are afraid of militant blacks?

Yeah. Maybe if we ignore him (them) he'll go away.

Are you kidding? I wish they would give him a primetime special so that he could fire off his hatespeak in front of mainstream America. Good-bye Obama.

Obama's church pushes controversial doctrines

WASHINGTON Jesus is black. Merging Marxism with Christian Gospel may show the way to a better tomorrow. The white church in America is the Antichrist because it supported slavery and segregation.

Those are some of the more provocative doctrines that animate the theology at the core of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Barack Obama's church.

Obama's speech Tuesday on race in America was hailed as a masterful handling of the controversy over divisive sermons by the longtime pastor of Trinity United, the recently retired Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.

But in repudiating and putting in context Wright's inflammatory lines about whites and U.S. foreign policy, the Democratic presidential front-runner didn't address other potentially controversial facts about his church and its ties.

Wright has said that a basis for Trinity's philosophies is the work of James Cone, who founded the modern black liberation theology movement out of the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. Particularly influential was Cone's seminal 1969 book, "Black Theology & Black Power."

Cone wrote that the United States was a white racist nation and the white church was the Antichrist for having supported slavery and segregation.

Today, Cone, a professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York, stands by that view, but also makes clear that he doesn't believe that whites individually are the Antichrist.

In an interview, Cone said that when he was asked which church most embodied his message, "I would point to that church (Trinity) first." Cone also said he thought that Wright's successor, the Rev. Otis Moss III, would continue the tradition.

Obama, 46, who's biracial, joined Trinity in his late twenties when he worked as a community organizer. He says he'll continue to worship there.

I wish the man's statements/beliefs/doctrines would become even more public. I wish he'd make a stop in every city and spew his personal brand of racism and bigotry.

Then MAYBE some people would 'get it' and realize that 'fro-bama is just one step away from the very core of the most extreme militant blacks this country has to offer.

But there will always be the brainwashed morons who buy into the "change" mantra without bothering to see what that change really is.

Just because he's been to busy watching the Barney Marathon on PBS instead of watching the clips of this wack-job of a preacher.

If I ran out of ammo, there'd be bigger problems than what we're talking about.
