So Obama finally responds in a clear manner against Wright today. What took so long? Also what took so long for him to realize who Wright was? I question Obama's judgment unless he really didn't attend Wright's church that often, which is possible. For this elite, it seems church was merely a political duty. Either way, he was foolish to accept Wright on a surface level and let him officiate his wedding, or foolish to simply accept him because he was a pastor of a powerful church in Chicago.
Remember when Wright said, "America's chickens are coming home to roost" with regards to the 9/11 attack? His defense of this statement was awesome and incredibly twisted, "Jesus said, 'Do uhttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifnto others as you would have them do unto you.' You cannot do terrorism on other people and expect it never to come back on you. Those are biblical principles, not Jeremiah Wright bombastic divisive principles."
I believe Jesus was focused on how we should treat others, and highlighting that we wouldn't want to be treated poorly so we should treat everyone with love, kindness and respect. I don't think there was an inverse intent of his statement that assumes others are allowed to do the same or worse to you. In the case of Wright's terrorism comparison, 9/11 was far worse of a direct attack on America than what America has done to any terrorist groups. How could he even compare? He's crazy.
