Jeremiah Wright to be interviewed by Bill Moyers

In what will be his first interview since snippets of his preaching became a central issue in the U.S. presidential campaign, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. will speak publicly to veteran journalist and fellow UCC member Bill Moyers.

The interview will be broadcast on Friday evening, April 25, on Bill Moyers Journal, a PBS news series that airs nationally. Check local listings at www.pbs.org/moyers.

Wright retired in March after 36 years as senior pastor of the 8,000-member Trinity UCC in Chicago, where U.S. Sen. Barack Obama has been a member for more than 20 years. Trinity UCC is the largest congregation among the UCC’s 5,700 churches.

Following his appearance on Bill Moyers Journal, Wright is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the NAACP Detroit Branch on Sunday, April 27. He is also slated to speak on Monday, April 28, to a breakfast gathering at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Yet, I’ve got a strong feeling that no matter what Reverend Jeremiah Wright says, that it won’t be enough to sway or change the minds of those who hate him.  Spewing hate in the very name of whom they profess their love for and the message that he represents – God.

I can’t help but wonder, (I don’t give it to much thought) because trying to figure out the mindset of the religious or the Christians would probably send me into a tailspin.  Yet, since Rev. Wright’s greatest hits was first aired provoking God’s people and our patriots into a total outrage do you think they hate God, as much as they hate him?  I do wonder sometimes. 

They are angry over his use of the words ‘God Damn America’.  However I question rather of any these people have read the book of Revelations?  And, if they have – okay do you believe it?

It’s certainly not a book where God is saying, ‘I will soon come to fix you a cup of tea with honey and while I’m at it I will bake you – your favorite cake.  When he gets here for those who aren’t saved and from the Laws that were written none of us will be, it’s not humanly possible.  But he is going to damn this nation.  He is going to destroy this world.  You’ll even find yourself walking knee high in blood through the streets.  There are so many promises of how God is going to damn those (who choose to believe) in the final days.  The one I cited might be the kindest of them.     

So do they hate God, as much as they hate Reverend Wright?  If anyone really has a problem with Reverend saying, God is going to damn America this nation or this world – I say take it straight to God.  It’s in his message that can be found in the book of Revelation. 

And, last since I’ve never blogged or written about this I wonder what sets apart Reverend Wright and Senator Barack Obama in comparison to Pastors John Hagee, Rod Parsley and the senators that are endorsed by and follow them? 

What is the difference between Reverend Jeremiah Wright and those who speak ill words of hatred towards him?  None!  If you believe in the Bible then believe all of it.  A sin -is a sin – is a sin… I’m glad I don’t follow organized religion.

    I will tune in. It’s doubtful the ones who have made it their life’s work as of late will stop hating him.

    Religious people and their followers do not like to forgive and they have a very difficult time admitting they were wrong.

    Everything is based on their scriptures.

    at the conclusion of the show stay tune for the ‘Hate Fest.’

    People who harbor this much hate can’t possibly love God. God says to be still and know that I am God. Yet, the pundits won’t be still and let God. He’s still in control – and His Will will be done no matter what they do or don’t do.

    But, no doubt this is going to be the interview of the season! No doubt Moyers will have the highest ratings of his career. I don’t know how I’m going to stay calm this week…the PA primary…the interview…Better put on our life jackets, I feel a Hurricane Obama-Wright coming! SjP

  4. Speak the truth ‘TruthSeeker’.

    LOL – Hurricane Obama – I’m feeling it.

  5. People hear what they want to hear, not what IS said or the context in which it is said. I’ve noticed people look for key words or phrases as if they are waiting to be offended, even though no offense was given or intended. I have to believe the reason for this is ignorance, or just lack of cognitive ability. I have a friend who claims 98% of people are below average (intelligence). Think about it.

  6. I believe 85 to 90% of the World is just plain miserable, which probably plays a significant role in it.
