In Easter Sermon, New Obama Pastor Charges Rev. Wright Victim of
‘Lynching’ Click Title for Rest of Article
CHICAGO — The new pastor of Barack Obama’s church delivered a defiant defense of its retiring reverend Sunday, comparing media coverage of Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. to a modern-day lynching that resembles Jesus’ death at the hands of the Romans.
In a sunrise Easter sermon, Rev. Otis Moss III never mentioned Wright by name, but implied that his mentor, who has delivered sermons in which he likened the U.S. to the Ku Klux Klan and declared it damned or its “state-sponsored terrorism,” is facing the same challenges Jesus did.”No one should start a ministry with lynching, no one should end their ministry with lynching,” Moss said.
Will be interesting to see what Obama has to say about this most recent episode of reverse racism, listen as he explains how the press coverage of the event amounted to a LYNCHING! I really want to hear Obama defend his remaining with the church under a SECOND RACIST MINISTER...I know, we don't understand the Black Church experience? In the meantime, Political Dirt encourages all Americans to begin the discussion by contacting the Trinity United Church of Christ with your views on this latest sermon (hate speech).
Before the Democratic Party and Obama try to distant themselves, you might want to visit this Democratic Website where you can watch Otis do his THANG.

Yesterday, Dr. Rev. Otis Moss, III spoke in Washington, DC in honor of Black History Month. The event, a joint production of the Democratic National Committee's American Majority Partnership and Faith In Action team was entitled "Engaging a New Generation of Prophetic Leadership." It was a truly a remarkable speech that discussed the intergenerational dynamics of political activism within the Black Church Community. Reverend Moss spoke with great passion about the challenges facing the faith community in the years ahead as politics and time change circumstances. You can watch the video below, about 50 minutes in its entirety, and completely engaging.
Rev. Moss is quite the orator. Go check him out.
