Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright has been the focus of extraordinarily unfair criticism this week for certain statements made during sermons.
It happens that the news organizations selected statements of Rev. Wright that were dramatic and removed the context of his statements in his sermon.
The fortunate thing about the Internet is that it provides a medium for research and discussion. There is a site on YouTube that now provides the part of the sermon that gives context to Rev. Wright’s statements that were displayed on the news programs.
Here is the sermon that includes Rev. Wright’s “God Damn America” statement with the other part of Rev. Wright’s sermon that provides context for his remarks.
There are other videos at the YouTube site for Trinity Chicago that also provide context for Rev. Wright’s televised comments.
For example, Rev. Wright in speaking of the chickens coming home to roost was actually referring to a statement made by an ambassador featured on a Fox News program.
The condemnation of Rev. Wright is unwarranted and unfair.
