Anyone who pronounces on Jeremiah Wright without having seen Bill Moyers’ Journal last night doesn’t deserve a hearing. My mother-in-law–a nice 83-year-old Jewish lady–put it this way: “Rev. Wright was fantastic–after listening to 5 minutes of what preceded God Damn America I’m ready to join the church.” I’m not sure I’m quite that ready, but there can be no better answer to the question, posed repeatedly over the past weeks, of why Obama didn’t leave Trinity U.C.C. There are few clergy I’ve ever seen or heard more impressive–intellectually, spiritually–than Wright in this conversation. Judge for yourself.
