In Which I defend Rev. Wright (only a little bit)…

There has been a bit made (e.g. here) about recent written comments of Obama‘s Rev. Wright – though the original seems to have since been removed.

I strangely feel compelled two defend Wright on two points:

1) By saying “Italians“, he was clearly referring to Romans of the time of Jesus.

2) Metaphorically linking lynching (rather, the popular image of a dead lynched person handing from a tree for all to see) to crucifixion (giving it a more contemporaneous spin) is quite clever.

Note, I do find “black liberation theology” to be crap and have ever since I ran into it in college.

Hmm…reading his wikipedia entry…how does an enlisted PFC in his his first hitch transfer from the Marines to the Navy? That’s sounds odd.

    I talked to my dad (a veteran marine sergeant). He while this would be very unusual, it might be done if there was great need. Since, wright became a Navy Corpsman, he might have been filling a need and deployed right back to marines anyways.
