Can somebody mass mail this to DU and everyone who is on Obama's mailing list?
OK. There's some uncertainty in our group as to which sport Mr. Johnson practices, but as long as it's a sport, it's not something I need to know. Thanks.
I'd have to google for more, but shortly after 9-11, Jerry Falwell appeared on The 700 club and blamed the tragedy on gays and liberals. Pat Robertson agreed with him on the show, then took back his agreement after the comments hit the secular media. I consider that to be America-hating, in that it singles out groups of americans to blame for acts committed by foreigners.
I'm not necessarily defending Wright's comments, although I did grow up attending a UCC church and was familiar with him long before this election cycle. His church does a lot of good in Chicago-like most large, african american churches, TUCC has a food distribution program, a substance abuse treatment program, community activities like Girl Scouts, and offers other services to the neighborhood around the church. My sister attended it once on a sort of youth group field trip, and she enjoyed it a great deal. Trinity has an awesome choir, I am told.
I will say this-Wright assumes he is speaking for black americans when he makes those comments-whether he truly is speaking for them is another matter. Robertson thinks he is speaking for God. There's a big difference between those two perspectives.
