Jeremiah Wright: "Obama Is Still My Child"
Barack Obama’s racist spiritual mentor, father figure and pastor of 20 years, Reverend “G-D” Jeremiah Wright, returned home to the pulpit at Trinity UCC on Sunday and lashed out at the media.
Jeremiah Wright continued to blast members of the media for exposing his hate-filled anti-AmeriKKKan rants.
Breaking News reported:
For the first time since his retirement last spring, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. returned to the pulpit of Trinity United Church of Christ this morning with two goals: glorifying God and vilifying the media.
In honor of Trinity’s 47th anniversary, Wright preached Sunday worship services in place of Rev. Otis Moss III, who was attending his father’s farewell from the pulpit of Olivet Institutional Baptist Church in Cleveland.
Citing the revelation to Mary by the angel Gabriel that she would conceive a child to be born the Son of God, Wright said Mary’s disbelief was similar to the doubts some faithful shared about the future of Trinity after Wright’s retirement and the possibility of a black man being elected president.
“Our legitimate questions tend to be asked from the vantage point of limited horizons,” said Wright during the 7:30 a.m. service. “Mary had a limited horizon. She couldn’t see how it was possible.”
“In almost every instance where I have encountered this phenomenon, what I have discovered is that the limited horizons are caused by the tendency to look for a person to provide you with answers for your legitimate questions,” Wright continued. “I really should say our legitimate questions, not your legitimate questions, because God knows I’ve got some questions myself.”
Wright, Trinity’s former pastor, gained prominence when President-elect Barack Obama in his memoirs cited the pastor’s inspirational sermons.
Wright said no amount of media coverage could dampen Trinity spirit.
“Jesus said upon this rock I will build–listen to the promise–my church,” he said. “And the gates of Hell–listen to the promise–the gates of Hell–neither ABC nor CNN–the gates of Hell–neither Hannity nor O’Reilly–the gates of Hell–neither Time, Time magazine, Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Tribune … the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. Nothing will be impossible with God.”
At the 11 a.m. service, Wright belittled “baby milk believers,” who, he said, suffer a delusion that politics don’t belong in the pulpit. He pointed out that “Luke the evangelist, not Wright the radical” lambasted the oppressive policies of the Roman government in the Gospel story that recounts Jesus’ life.
UPDATE: Wright also confessed that Obama is “still my child.”
