Wright’s Remarks Are “Irrelevant”?

It’s amazing! When I first heard about the comments of Rev Wright, pastor to Sen. and Mrs. Barack Obama for 20 years, I was appalled. Then I watched Rev. Wright on YouTube and felt a revulsion toward those remarks. In a family discussion. I brought those remarks up with my liberal relatives and was told that the remarks were taken out of context. I was told that I should listen to the whole sermon. Sen. Obama gave his racial healing speech and all was expected to be fine, even though Obama called his grandmother a “typical white person”.

Now Rev. Wright gave another speech and Sen. Obama has finally had enough and disavowed his relationship and condemned the words of the Rev. Now The Oregonian opines: “At some point, the views of Barack Obama’s old friend and pastor become irrelevant.”

David Reinhard writing on the same subject nails it with the reminder: “You are judged by the company you keep.” “Birds of a feather flock together.” “You cannot choose your family, but you can choose your friends.”
