Common Pulpit Speech


Obama says, “Did I strongly disagree with many of his political views?  Absolutely – just as I’m sure many of you have heard remarks from your pastors, priests, or rabbis with which you strongly disagreed.”  This a breathtaking attempt to pass off Wright’s hateful rants by implying that they are little different than the “political views” of some priest with which a parishioner might disagree.  Does he think plenty of ministers of every faith are capable of spewing Wright-like vitriol or, despite his repudiations, does he really view the comments as benign “political views” with which we’re free to disagree.
