Although in this speech (which includes the now infamous Q & A in parts 4-6, below), Jeremiah Wright takes a few things that the Bible teaches out of context, most of this bold chastisement of the press and call for us to be ONE is wonderful!
It’s sad and telling to see Obama now basically denounce Wright, especially regarding the use of our troops in foreign policy. Wright basically just says Obama is being a politician, doing what politicians do in order to win—which I think is unconscionable.
I transcribed this statement by Wright on what Ron Paul calls nation building.
“We have troops stationed all over the world,
just like Rome had troops stationed all over the world,
because we run the world.
That notion of imperialism is not the message of the gospel of the Prince of Peace,
nor a God whom loves the world.”
