Wright and Brite -- Bosom Buddies?

So, Barack Obama's pastor is getting an award from Brite Divinity School of TCU. He, they say, links Divine justice and social justice. Hmmmm . . .

I'm not a reactionary type. The Rev. Wright and his ilk are not what America needs to worry about. If their criticism is legitimate it should be considered, if it is not, then who cares what they say. Frankly, I think what bugs most people is not that Reverend Wright makes statements false and misleading, but that it is confrontational and abrasive. He is abrasive.

But you can tell a lot about a school by whom they honor. It says much about Brite Divinity School.

And it ain't good.

I'm gonna be wild here and say that I liked Obama's speech. I don't understand the calls for him to 'denounce' the person of Jeremiah Wright. The guy said some nutty things but that is it. I respect Obama (sort of) for not throwing the guy completly under the bus.

Actually, I agree.

Brite Divinity School and TCU are sperate institutions. TCU just allows Brite to operate on TCU's campus. TCU said that it would not support an award to Wright.

I stand corrected . . . I think.
