Ack -- I can't take it anymore -- I don't care that much about Wright and it doesn't affect my support for Obama, but you and these other "scholars" have to stop pissing on our heads and telling us it's raining! There's no way to excuse Wright's poisoning of children's minds with his AIDS conspiracy crap no matter how long he was a marine or how much better he was compared to other black preachers of his era. Bullshit.
The man is part of the problem, not part of the solution and if African-Americans can't grow up enough to treat him as such then I'm leaving the table. I'll acknowledge Wright's good works, but the Bible teaches us that good works towards some do not excuse sins towards others. Your constant "I don't condone his statements but..." won't cut it.
