You've seen this, right?
Can you imagine? Someone talking about race like we're adults? It's weird, right?
Anyway. Regarding this Rev. Wright madness. I would just like to say, I find the consternation of the alleged Christians who are all hyped up about his remarks truly whack because:
b) The United Church of Christ. Not exactly a whackass cult, just a MAINSTREAM CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION, with roots in the 17th century (the origin of the Congregational church, which merged with the Evangelical & Reformed Church in the 1950s). I am a titch biased because this is the church I belong to, of course, but come the eff on, morons, don't piss me off by suggesting it's some lunatic fringe freakshow. I'm happy to be part of a church associated with Rev. Wright, who is a respected thinker in liberation theology and religion in general. So there! And finally,
c) That no one is familiar enough with the Biblical story of the Prophet Jeremiah (who's Wright's namesake, of course), who was thrown into a pit to die because people in power thought he didn't love his country enough (although he spoke to his countrymen out of love), is just so effing IRONIC, I could spit nails.
