The Truth About Barack Obama: Jeremiah Wright by Christopher George

Barack Obama has been attending Trinity United Church on the South side of Chicago for 20 years. Trinity United Church is headed by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a pastor with radical views. This past spring Rev. Wright retired from Trinity and Obama stated during an interview on ABC’s The View that “Had Wright not retired, I’d have left the church.”

Rev. Jeremiah Wright as shown on the ABC News website in an ABC News video clip declared that blacks should not sing “God Bless America” but “God Damn America.” In the same segment Wright would go on to mention “white America, US of KKKA” and in regards to 9/11 “We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye……We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.” From this proclamation, he is uttering that the United States brought on 9/11 for its actions around the globe.

As a Christian, I find it ironic that Obama would state that he would leave his church if Wright had not retired, but he has been attending for 20 years. When you attend a church for 20 years, it isn’t a question if you support your pastor’s ideologies, if you have been attending for two decades it is apparent that you believes in the philosophy and the ideals your pastor bases his lecture on. In this case, that pastor happens to be a radicalist who is anti-American. Barack and Michelle Obama were married by Rev .Wright and his daughters were baptized at Trinity. The title of Obama’s book “Audacity of Hope” is credited to Rev. Wright. Obama proclaimed “I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial.” In what way, shape, or form is a pastor yelling “God Damn America” three times not controversial?

It is easy to relate Obama’s displeasure with his pastor during a pivotal time in his career in regards to his leaving the church if Wright had not retired. You can tie this together simply by asking the question: “Would Barack Obama have made that statement if he was not running for President of the United States?”

It was stated during the ABC News segment that “an ABC News review of over a dozen sermons” showing, that in what seems to be a majority of lectures, Wright speaks of anti-American views, how could Barack Obama have never attended one of these sermons in 20 years? Impossible.
