Thanks, old friend

Wright As predicted, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's latest speech to his groupies the media at the National Press Club is doing his friend Barack Obama a bit of no good. Isn't selfless love for one's friends supposed to be a major tenet of Christianity?

I don't think the "his groupies" with the strike through is really raising the level of conversation on your blog. Just a thought. Wikipedia says groupies are people who are seeking intimacy, usually physical, sometimes emotional, with a famous person. It seems a little silly to imply that the members of the national press club are in such a position toward Dr. Wright.

And why not link to the entire video, instead of a video of excerpts, and challenge your readers to watch the whole thing and come to their own conclusions? Just another thought.

Couldn't find it on YouTube at first, and I was in a bit of a hurry so I ended up just going with the first clip I'd found. But YouTube has it all now. Here you go:

To answer your rhetorical question, Gina, since Jeremiah Wright is clearly one of the teachers Paul was warning us about in 2 Timothy 4:3, I don't think he's terribly worried about what Christianity really teaches about friendship. Plus, the man seems to have an enormous ego, and we've all experienced moments where our ego caused us to engage in behavior that harmed our friends.
