    What Rev. Wright said was an anthem to what is wrong with this country.  Bullshit politics is all that got in the way.  

    •  I think I was very tolerant. (4+ / 0-)

      I have made it clear many times that I think Wright was judged harshly--except for the Press Club. But then he lost my respect and any benefit of the doubt I could give him. He made this bed for himself.

      It grieves me that a man who has done so much good faces so much disgrace at the end of his stellar career. But in the crunch--he couldn't bring himself to do one simple thing--and that was to shut the fuck up.

      •  So (0+ / 0-)

        The then-potential leader of our Constitutional Republic was supposed to censor religious expression when it got in the way?

        Or we somehow had a right to expect self-censorship?

        I understand you really are arguing for discretion here, but it is a short step toward involuntary silence.

        God and ego are not equivalent expressions of reality.

      and an egostistical grandstander.  Maybe he wasn't always that way.  And yes, he's right on some issues, but he's a divisive person who seems to relish personal attacks, and he's a sexist to boot.

      two cheers for democracy
