Rev. Jeremiah Wright “Obama is still my child”

President-elect Barack Obama made a “bad decision” by distancing himself from the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his church, Wright said Sunday, 7 December 2008 – “but that’s OK.” -said Rev. Wright.

I have plenty of sympathy in my heart for Rev. Wright the way the media characterized him as an anti-American revolutionary jester. In my observations, Rev. Wright is articulate, educated and opinionated…right now…Rev. Wright needs to sit down somewhere and take a dose of humility. Rev. Wright, speaking at Trinity on its 47th anniversary, said he was proud of “the only church that produced the first and only African-American president in the 211-year history of the United States. No other church can say that.” What a great association one can make but why be boastful about it? The media is gonna trail your “ass”ets until 2013 so be careful in what you say, man! Like his comments regarding Elisabeth Hasselbeck of ABC’s “The View,” whom — while not saying her name — Wright twice referred to as a “broad,” including once as “that dumb broad.” Rev. Jeremiah Wright needs to watch how he addresses women. Seriously, “broad” and/or “dizzy broad” aren’t words I’d expect to hear from the mouth of a man of the cloth when talking about a woman.


Rev. Wright continues…”The hatred of the media and the haters in politics may have caused him to distance himself from us, but the love of Christ will never allow me to distance myself from him,” Wright said of Obama. “I can no more disown him than I can disown any other child of mine who makes [a] bad decision. He made a bad decision, but he’s still my child.” Rev. Wright what does the Bible say? Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6 Rev. Wright you have done well by President Elect Obama, like a father pray for him with feverish reverence from now until eternity. Sacrifice your ego for humility this time for the sake of your son Barack Obama. In God’s name we pray. AMEN.
