Jeremiah Wright Cancels Appearance at Texas Divinity School
JEREMIAH WRIGHT CANCELS TEXAS EVENTS DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS…
But, Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth will go ahead and honor the racist, America-hating pastor anyway.
The Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth will go ahead with its plans to honor the Rev. Jeremiah Wright this weekend, even though Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor decided to skip the ceremony.
The divinity school announced on its Web site Wednesday that it had “received notice” that Wright will not attend its 4th annual State of the Black Church Summit and awards banquet. Wright had been scheduled to appear there Saturday evening, following a luncheon panel at Paul Quinn College, a historically black school in South Dallas.
Wright has also canceled plans to speak at three services Sunday at Houston’s Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church. Wright cited security concerns, the church’s pastor told Houston television station KTRK and the Houston Chronicle.
Wright also canceled his appearance Tuesday at a Tampa-area church at the request of church officials, who had security concerns about the pastor’s three-day appearance there.
The Dallas Star-Telegram has more on the cancellations:
The Rev. Marcus Cosby, pastor at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church, told Houston television station KTRK and the Houston Chronicle that safety concerns had prompted Wright’s decision.
Cosby told the Chronicle that Wright cited three reasons for canceling: “the safety of the institution to which he has been invited; the safety of his family, which has been placed in harm’s way; and for his own safety.”
