Oh Man......Obama's Albatross is Back-Rev. Jeremiah Wright at NAACP Gala!

Well, in the immortal words of Poltergeist’s Heather O’Rourke (referencing Rev. Wright)-“he’s ba-aaack!” I sincerely hope that I am wrong but this latest episode of the Wright controversy might have effectively KO’d Senator Obama’s bid for the Democratic nomination. Try as I might to take a break from a political discourse on this blog, I get pulled back in. For your pleasure, check out the above snippet from Wright’s NAACP speech held yesterday in Detroit. And then, purchase another Jeremiah’s excellent polemical treatise, Holy Lockdown: Does the Church Limit Black Progress?, written by Jeremiah Camara. After viewing Wright's latest appearance, one must answer Camara’s book title in the affirmative. Better yet, let’s spread the pain around a bit and vet everyone’s spiritual advisor. Let’s take a look at the Clintons' minister. Let’s also not forget McCain’s religious albatross, Rev. Hagee. We’ll see how this plays out but I suspect that this might be the Obama campaign’s death knell. Feel free to click on the link below to see the aforementioned speech in its entirety:

Rev. Wright's speech

Ahem...and didn't I say a few weeks ago that the Black Church as an institution is really what is being scrutinized? Let the Church say amen....what do you guys think?
