What a contrast!
Rev. Jeremiah Wright is Barack Obama’s pastor of the last 20 years.
His angry style, as a proponet of what is called "liberation theology", could de-rail Senator Obama’s bid for the White House, even though the junior Senator from Illinois certainly does not come across as mean, bitter, and hostile to America, himself.
Yet, Rev. Wright is as negative as Obama is positive in the manner in which he rails against the country of his fantastic success in the ministry!
This forces people to question how Obama really feels about America.
By a powerful contrast, there are two great African-American men of God who you probably will never hear about in the news: Rev. Luke J. Robinson, pastor of Quinn Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Frederick, Maryland, and Arnold Culbreath, Urban Outreach Director of an organization called "Protecting Black Life."
The reason: both of these men believe in the right to be alive of unborn children, so they are utterly ignored, in spite of the fact their messages are positive and healing.
In contrast to Dr. Wright, whose antics have displayed the un-appeasable rage of accumulated bitterness.
Confused young minority women have chosen life over abortion because of their compassion and willingness to take a stand for the unborn at a high social price!
Obama seems to be a personality closer to that of Rev. Robinson or to Arnold Culbreath than to his own pastor!
Obama, like all Democrats who aspire to the nomination of the Democratic Party, accepts his Party’s intolerance of pro-lifers.
Yet, he does refer to abortion as a "personal tragedy", which hints that he wishes the Country was more like the vision of Pastor Robinson and Director Culbreath than the eternal rage of the man he calls a "mentor".
This is America. Guilt by association is not something, as a norm, that we approve of.
But, the case of Rev. Jeremiah Wright does raise credibility problems for anyone who rationalizes his words.
What a contrast, however, in two strong Christian leaders who we will never hear about in the news, solely because they disagree with the bigotry of most reporters against all who believe that human life is sacred.
What a contrast between greatness and compassion in Robinson and Culbreath vs. the everlasting rage of so-called "liberation theology"!
