Jeremiah Wright Ain't Much of a Christian
First off, you really shouldn't speculate about other people's true inner feelings. How could you know? But then when you get to running for POTUS and wanting keys to the nukes, we all need to understand you as best we can inside and out. Plus, Barack Hussein Obama is some kind of piece of work. Only in "God damn" America.

This brings us to the infamous Rev Jeremiah Wright late of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, the man who led Obama to Jesus, married him, baptized his children, etc. See, I strongly suspect that neither of these guys nor much of this congregation really actually believe in Jesus Christ.

Obama appears to have had a theoretically ideal multi-cultural upbringing with the secular college professor mom and Muslims on the other side. He's had at least a little taste of mosque going growing up - which is all to the good. But Barry Obama is way too cool, educated and sophisticated to really seriously believe any of that jive.

However, as a young adult wanting to put down roots and go into politics, he becomes a Christian so he can join this cheesy black nationalist church. Jeremiah Wright doesn't believe in Jesus of Nazareth any more than me or Jesse Jackson do. If he did, he'd be too scared of being struck by lightning to talk some of the black foolishness that he does.

Jesus of Nazareth barely shows up during the Jeremiah Wright Show. What does making up hateful nonsense about AIDS conspiracies have to do with the message of the Christ? He's getting over with the million dollar home and fame not for preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ, but cheesy black nationalist shtick about some black God what is going to smite whitey. Not much of a 'love thy neighbor as thyself' message in that. Barack Obama surely doesn't believe this nonsense - but Jeremiah Wright doesn't believe most of this foolishness himself, any more than Al Sharpton really believed Tawana Brawley. These are not stupid men.

Note also Wright's buddy-buddy relationship with Louis Farrakhan - much more so than with most Christian churches, certainly moreso than most white ones. But that's because Calypso Louis truly shares his highest values. They may not be brothers in Christ, but they are brothers in black nationalist demagoguery.

The collegiate salons of San Francisco seem the more natural social element for Barry Obama than a real church. So it's understandable that as an Ivy League elite he would think that people "cling" to religion because they're "bitter." That he would say that alone suggests strongly that he doesn't really believe himself. But the sermons of Rev Wright do certainly appeal to bitterness and anger.

If he really did worship Jesus Christ as his savior, he'd be looking for a preacher displaying or at least aspiring to the compassion of Christ. There'd be a lot less god damning of America (most of which damned Americans are Wright's brothers and sisters in Christ). There'd be a lot more gratitude to the maker. I didn't see much sign of that in evidence during his big NAACP and National Press Club gigs.

Conveniently enough, such a sentiment showed up locally on a church display at the Western Avenue Baptist Church in Connersville, Indiana this week, which crystallized the point to me and made me want to write this down. I don't know if they necessarily meant this as a Barack message, but this right here is exactly the opposite of the Rev Wright's presentation - and just what I would hope for from true disciples of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Baptist church message: Bitterness kills, Gratitude heals
And they'll know we are Christians by our love.
