Obama Speaks Out on Wright
Seeking to quell a growing storm about controversial comments by the pastor of his church, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama has issued a statement.
It’s worth looking at the whole thing, available for your reading pleasure on Huffington Post, but this bit stands out:
Most importantly, Rev. Wright preached the gospel of Jesus, a gospel on which I base my life. In other words, he has never been my political advisor; he’s been my pastor. And the sermons I heard him preach always related to our obligation to love God and one another, to work on behalf of the poor, and to seek justice at every turn.
Will it be enough?
