Today as a nation we celebrate the life and accomplishments of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Junior, American pastor, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs. Dr. King is a true American hero - not only just to the African-American community but to America-at-large and throughout the world.

The Reverend Jeremiah Wright is Pastor Emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois, which has a congregation that exceeds 6,000. Rev. Wright is also President Obama's former church pastor and his self-proclaimed "spiritual mentor." That's why I found it odd to read the quote which was attributed to Wright and which I have titled this blog.

This quote was the subject of a a recent article published in one of President Obama's hometown newspapers last week - the Chicago Sun-Times. Here is the article in its entirety:

"King had a dream, Obama has a drone, Rev. Wright says

If the Rev. Jeremiah Wright believes — as he’s claimed in the past — that he and President Barack Obama will be buddies again when he’s out of office, the firebrand preacher didn’t do himself any favors Wednesday.

Speaking at a breakfast co-hosted by the Chicago Teachers Union to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Wright said that while the civil rights leader proclaimed “I have a dream,” Obama says, “I have a drone.”

Wright, Obama’s former pastor, called for King’s “revolution of values” and a rejection of the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism” — the foundations of Western society, he said.

“Every Tuesday morning, there’s a kill list that the president decides who they’re going to kill this week,” Wright said.

Wright, pastor emeritus at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side, drew national attention during the 2008 presidential race for parts of his sermons, including one in which he said, “God damn America.” Obama later distanced himself from Wright.

Wright — with CTU President Karen Lewis (second photo above) and a host of mainly African-American pastors in attendance — continued in that vein Wednesday, blasting corporate media for reducing King’s words to palatable sound bites. Wright provided plenty of his own sound bites, as he took aim at some of Illinois’ most revered citizens, including America’s 16th president.

“Abraham Lincoln liked to tell darkie jokes,” Wright said. “He liked to hear darkie jokes and he used the N-word incessantly.”

Wright, his words spiced with sarcasm, questioned how U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan landed his job — after he “ruined the school system” in Chicago as CEO of schools.

“A good hook shot playing basketball with . . . Barack Hussein Obama,” Wright said to chuckles.

After the speech, Wright left without answering reporters’ questions — including those from a Fox national news crew chasing him down a hallway.

Lewis defended Wright’s remarks, including the Obama references, saying the pastor’s words need to be seen in a broad context.

“The issue is, how do we put those things in context so we can get to the point where we can have a world that’s healed and perfected, where we don’t have war?” Lewis said."
