    Greetings, bubba.

    That was one of his more polite speeches! I think him saying "God damn America" was one of the most shocking things I had ever heard from a pastor, but to each his own. I remember how he almost upset the Obama bandwagon during the 2008 campaign, and the Obamas quickly left the church after attending for over 20 years. As it turned out, Wright built himself a mansion and retired. All's well that ends well, I guess.

    The beer bottle was half empty and he was in the tub with his shorts on, he probably was laughing because he was drunk on his ass.

    Like said I don't believe he's a racist, he's sticking up for his race. I have no problem with that, you apparently do.

    As we celebrate the foundations of our future, this is not a time to romanticize because we have the first African-descended president in the White House,” Wright said in a fiery sermon that lasted close to an hour. “You see what the tea party is trying to do.”

    Speaking at Washington’s Florida Avenue Baptist Church, which marks its 100th anniversary this week, Wright urged parishioners to teach their children true African-American history and not to cede their educations to “our enemies” who teach “his story,” one that “distorts our story, disses our story.”
    Children may “only know Oprah and Obama,” he said, so it’s up to elders to teach about Nat Turner, Emmett Till, Rosa Parks, Paul Robeson, Zora Neale Hurston and other black voices.

    “We need to tell our children … how we got from a black congressman named Adam Clayton Powell to a black president named Barack Hussein Obama,” he said to applause. “But we also need to tell them how we have black politicians who steal money.

    Sooooo, does that mean the KKK aren't racists? After all, they're just sticking up for their race.

    There are conservative pastors who are against abortion that have said the same thing.

    You said pastors, as in plural. Surely if there are multiple pastors shouting the Lord's name in vain from the pulpit, it shouldn't be too difficult to locate a video or two. Right?

    What she said repeatedly is that she didn't care if he did anything wrong or not. Rather, he should step down to "send a message." Send a message about what? The GOP doesn't care about truth and dances for race baiters - right or wrong?

    What a bunch of BS. No one REALLY gives a damn either way other than the media talking heads trying to make a story.

    Stupid politics to step down too. The only REAL news would be if he resigns. Otherwise? No news. What the media did is obliterate his ever being a presidential candidate under the guilt by association concept. Then again, Obama is president so we know that guilt by association doesn't work with voters anyway.
