Clinging To Religion

Obama described bitter people clinging to religion. I think we all know why he relates bitterness with religion, just listen to the "Rev."

He says, the black church tradition is not bombastic or controversial, but different and misunderstood by the "dominant culture" in the United States. I always thought the church belonged to Christ...doesn't Wright speak at the Trinity United Church of Christ. Yet, he rails against attacks on the "black church." Jesus has one church and it's neither black nor white.

Using the pulpit for voicing personal grievances under the guise of the gospel of Christ is an abuse of the pastor's position. And although he admits "I'm still going to have to be answerable to God on November 5 and January 21," one must wonder if Jeremiah Wright truly understands the significance of those words.

James 3:1 Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
