Response To Rev. Wright-I Simply Can’t Take It Anymore

Ahh, Rev. Wright, what a guy.  He has really outdone himself in the past few days, saying that the “attacks” on him are actually on the “black church.”   He has suggested that he is not Obama’s spiritual mentor by calling such a reference “voodoo.”  He stands by his ridiculous position that the HIV virus was invented by the U.S. Government as a way of eliminating minorities.  (I guess the numerous white americans with Aids are just collateral damage).

He discussed how white people clap on the 1 and 3 beat of songs and black people clap on the 2 and 4 beat–Wha?  He made numerous references to how every aspect of our culture is dominated by “white culture.”  I guess he hasn’t seen the Billboard charts or the slew of professional athletes that are minorities or the amazing acting of people like Denzel Washington and Halle Berry, I suppose he hasn’t noticed that there are minorities on the Supreme Court, in numerous major offices in this Country like, Mayor of Philadelphia, New Orleans, Detroit, Atlanta and numerous others.

So what in the heck is wrong with this guy?  Well, oddly, Rev. Otis Moss, his replacement seems to have some of the same problems:

Wow, so apparently Rev. Wright and Jesus are very similar.   Wow!  Something must be wrong here.

The website for the Trinity United Church of Christ says “Black theology is one of the many theologies in the Americas that became popular during the liberation theology movement. They include Hispanic theology, Native American theology, Asian theology and Womanist theology.”  Womanist theology????  You know what that is—it is a theology that focuses on the suppression of Black Women primarly by White Women.  Very inclusive. 

So we are to believe that as a white Eurocentrist we simply do not understand that Black people are different, and worship differently and have a different theology.  Does this sound like the type of “Change” we need to “unite us all,” that Obama keeps talking about?  And yet, Obama continues to defend this man and this church.

This type of rhetoric is exactly what causes and fosters racism in our communities.  For years, America was guilty of segregating Black Americans because of their skin color.  Rev. Martin Luther King said, ” I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.”  But of course, we can’t do that according to Rev. Wright, because the white man simply doesn’t get it.

Rev. Wright, You are not Jesus, you don’t even come close.  You can continually spew your hindsight driven explanation for your vile comments and attempt to convince us all that you are not a hate-mongering, Anti-American, divisive racist.  You can continue to say that your words were “taken out of context” or were simply small “snipits being looped over and over” and were therefore misunderstood.  You can continue to say that you are a patriot and that you love our Country all the while calling our military Roman Soliders and stating that the war is based on a lie.  You can continue to state that the US Government has a goal of suppressing and even murdering African-Americans simply because they are black.  You can do all of that because you ARE a free man, you have the right to speak your mind, you have the right to act the part of a fool, but…

WE WILL NOT BELIEVE IT!  We will chose not to be ignorant.  Because as a famous black preacher said many years ago, “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”  You would do well to take heed to Rev. King’s words.

    It is a terrible shame that a man such as Rev. Wright gets to be a public spokesperson for the “black church”. I am hopeful more qualified pastors like Tony Evans, T.D. Jakes, and many more might step forward and give us a more truthful depiction of the best of black theology.

    Right on Murphy. I think most people can probably see Wright for what he is….at least I hope so….
    But I am sickened by the number of people that seem to agree with this misguided, angry belief system.

  4. Brent Says:

    You’ve gotta give the guy a break, after all, his “black brain is different than your white brain.” If only you sang with only “five tones”, rather than “seven”, you’d understand. But, “your white brain learns differently.” And “you be clappin’ like dis ya’ll.”

    You know what is hilarious? Obama is going out of his way now to separate himself from Rev. Wright. Meanwhile, Wright (who is building a million dollar mansion) makes a wacko speech tour, and “rich white people” (your typical yuppie lib) agree with his every word.

  5. mklasing Says:

    Brent: You are so right. Shortly after posting this I heard Obama’s “breaking up” speech about Rev. Wright. Funny thing is–Rev. Wright didn’t say anything different last night than what he has been saying all along–so why all of a sudden did Obama decide to dump him?–Because his political advisers told him to–and for NO other reason.

  6. LAW Dude Says:

    Seriously, it never ends with these people. I love how they’re slugging it out.

    “Black Christianity” is apparently morphing into hatred of Western democracy and values…hmmm, I wonder who’s gonna win that fight.

  7. mklasing Says:

    No kidding Law dude–I thought Jesus preached about a Christianity that included all people–Gentiles and Jews and all the corners of the world. I guess maybe the “black Jesus” had a different message.

  8. SC&A Says:

    Wright has given Bell Curve authors Herstein and Murray a credibility that has eluded them for a long time.

    Wright usurps Jared Diamond, too. Of course Diamond is white, so his efforts don’t count.

    Ugh. I detest when any current or previously oppressed minority takes focus away from the real fight for equality and twists it to suit their agenda. It certainly should bother those of the background being exploited more than any other.

  10. Stacy Says:

    I believe Black Liberation Theology is a cult. The god of which they speak is not the God of the Bible. Methinks they might be hell bound.

  11. SC&A Says:

    Stupidity is a commodity handed out by God, in great abundance.

    After I reread this post, I realize just how true that statement is.

    Wright is a monument to stupidity and mediocrity.

  12. mklasing Says:

    Siggy, you are so right–I just cannot decide which reigns as the more stupid: 1-Wright’s rants; or 2-Obama’s willingness to defend him then, without credibility, dumping him altogether.

  13. Brent Says:

    I believe Black Liberation Theology is a cult.

    You would be correct me thinks. I know a guy (a preacher) who tends to agree with Wright, and I like the dude and he is a nice guy, but honestly he isn’t the brightest fella…

    God bless him though. Maybe, or perhaps not?

    What is the most remarkable aspect of this is not the ridiculousness of it all, but the fact that liberals completely accept and almost seem to encourage black on white racism.

    All of this is very ugly, but notice how the drive-by media has tried to sweep this under the rug.

    All I can say at this point is GO HILLARY! It’s not as if I want her to win, I just giggle at the fact that Operation Chaos has been such a success!
