Update: Obama’s Pastor – Jeremiah Wright – Too Hot for Houston Baptist Church!

Upcoming Dallas-area appearances by Rev. Wright have now also been canceled. 

Political Night Train recently reported that Senator Obama’s pastor, Jeremiah Wright was scheduled to preach sermons at a Baptist Church in Houston.  It seems that all the stories about Wright’s racist sermons are causing churches to rethink having him anywhere near there members.

Houston Chronicle — Obama’s former pastor won’t be giving sermons in Houston: “Security concerns have prompted the Rev. Jeremiah Wright to cancel his appearance at Houston’s Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church for the first time in two decades. Wright, who until February was minister of Sen. Barack Obama’s church, Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, was scheduled to preach three guest sermons in Houston on Sunday. … Widely publicized recorded excerpts from Wright’s past sermons, in which he quoted a former Iraq ambassador as saying that U.S. actions prompted the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and that the government created HIV to target people of color and harassed blacks through ‘three strike’ laws, prompted Obama to address race issues in a speech last week. Obama termed Wright’s comments ‘divisive,’ but also suggested that the snippets were not representative of the clergyman he has known for more than two decades.” Yesterday, a long-planned appearance by Wright at a Tampa revival was also canceled.

  1. It’s pretty sad that in 2008 a black man has to be concerned for his life just because he has the courage to speak the truth.
