2008 Elections: We Ask Again

Here is part II of the speech that the Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright gave to the Press Club in opening a symposium on the Black Church.

We have listened to Part I and now to Part II. The Reverend Dr. Wright is not saying anything that any other churchgoer or progressive or political activist has not said. In fact, so far we have not heard a single objectionable thing. He is talking about the good that churches, in particular his church, do for the needy, the weak, the poor, the sick. How is that bad? Can anyone tell us? Please?

Much as we, personally, disapprove of religion, we cannot find fault with those of the Reverend Dr. Wright's comments that we have heard. Perhaps if people would listen to the man, instead of letting some overpaid TV talking head bimbo tell them what to think, this manufactured controversy could go the way of the dinosaur.

I too heard nothing in fact I want elected people to tell it like it is but that will not happen.

You will not see this man backing away from comments he has made like the Dims when once in a blue moon they shake it up with a bit of truth then get hammered by the media whore heads and then recant.

Give me a politician with some balls who tells it like it is and is willing to stand up to the abuse no matter what the end result may be. That person to me in this day and age would be a hero to me.
