God, Reverend Jeremiah Wright & American Politics!
Reverend Jeremiah Wright: America’s Unsung Hero of 2008!
A Salute to Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the Wright Reverend is an unsung hero of Senator Obama’s continuous success and mercurial rise to the top.
The Wright Reverend ought to be America’s man of the year! And even though his presence is not welcome at the Democratic Convention in Colorado, he is a substantial part of the reason for America’s profound new hope, for it is he who gets much of the credit for producing Senator Obama and family. If only more individuals in the nation, particularly its former and current leaders had been shaped at Trinity United in Chicago!
America should thank the Wright Reverend; a man who served his country militarily and stood by the bedside of one of America’s other presidents who believed in ‘a great society’ for his gift of shaping, over the past 2 decades, America's current favorite son. The Wright Reverend, Trinity United and Liberation Theology molded and shaped the Obama family with values that the majority culture often claims but never embraces.
And even though many Americans hate the Wright Reverend (including some unknowledgable black Americans), ironically it is the Wright Reverend who produced America's most recent favorite son! The counterpart to the Wright Reverend & Trinity United, the white church gave America George Bush!
And even though you won’t be on the stage during the Democratic National Convention where you should be, or present for the inauguration if the inchoate Senator is to prevail Reverend Wright, you are responsible by and large for the positive changes that have recently taken place and that may take place even to a greater extent over the next four years in America and the world!
Senator Obama and family are what they are and mostly where they are because of you. And even though you have been betrayed, just as Jesus and Jeremiah of the scriptures were often betryaed, THANK YOU Reverend Jeremiah Wright, I salute you sir and many other Americans salute you, and the rest will come around sooner or later!
Peace & Grace from an ardent admirer,
Reverend C. Solomon
