Obama's "former" Pastor gets standing ovation

From Chicago Tribune:

Rev. Jeremiah Wright got a raucous standing ovation when he entered Saint Sabina church on the city's South Side on Friday night, according to video from WBBM-TV. Members yelled "Hallelujah!" as Wright embraced The Rev. Michael Pfleger, Saint Sabina's pastor.

The smiling Wright accepted an invitation to give the benediction at the Roman Catholic church but did not address the furor over his past sermons. He also sang "Happy Birthday" to Angelou, whose birthday is April 4.

The video:

Wright Quotes:

" ...
wants us to sing God bless America. No, no, no, not God bless America, God damn America..."

"... The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color"

And a huge crowd gives him a standing ovation?
Am I the only one disgusted by this?

Where are we going and why am I in this hand-basket?

Don't forget about his backing by Louis Farrakhan.

No, you are not the only one disgusted by this.
The "reverand" is attempting to sell a lot that many here don't want to buy.
The only problem is, it doesn't take much in this country to get a religous following of complete kooks. I think you even get tax breaks for it.

Wright and his followers have been exposed. There is nothing more the sane in this country can do, except bear this in mind in the future when dealing with his constituents.
