Re: A preacher that will live in stupidity


Mark, I’m really looking forward to Reverend Wright’s Christmas Day sermon when he’ll be marking the occasion of Jesus’ resurrection.

Tigerhawk asks a good question:

Why did Barack Obama spend twenty years listening to a man whose command of history is such that he thinks that December 7 commemorates the day the United States bombed Hiroshima?

By the way, here’s how Manya A Brachear of The Chicago Tribunereported” the sermon:

Noting the date, Dec. 7, which marks the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, Wright instead chose to focus on the thousands of Japanese civilians who died four years later when the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. [MY EMPHASIS]

In related news: “Tribune Co Allowed By Bankruptcy Court To Operate Normally.” That may be the problem right there.
