Sneak Peek Video: Rev. Wright Tries to Cover for Barack Obama with Bill Moyers Friday Night
Here's a brief refresher on one small part of Wright's theology, which Sen. Barack Obama has followed and endorse for two decades.
"“Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer and we had better kill him.
The task of black theology is to kill gods who do not belong to the black community. Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy.
What we need is the divine love as expressed in black power which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means
at their disposal."
That theology is from Wright favorite James Cones. He's one of the most vocal voices leading the black liberation theology movement.
" Dr. Robert Morey points out that for Black Liberation Theology, "their focus is always on skin and not sin; race and not grace; gossip and not gospel. Racism is always focused on the outward instead of the inward because it cannot deal with the root problem of sin." The Ankerberg Theological Institute further explains the roots of the belief system.
Does Wright have Obama's best interests at heart? Consider that carefully. This attention hound and media exploiter has chosen to again raise issues that Obama's slick campaign staff have been trying to back and fill,and bury.
Which is more important to Wright--his ego, supporting Obama, or getting new venues to get his attacks on America attention? Hint: the answers are two of the previous three, and not in the order presented.
An exclusive CBS affiliate story makes more of this story clear.
