Reverend Wright – Foot In Mouth

Barack Obama is probably kicking himself. The latest:

The Chicago pastor refused to apologize for suggesting black Americans should sing “God Damn America” instead of “God Bless America” and for suggesting America brought 9/11 on itself because, as he put it, “we have never apologized as a country” for slavery.

“Britain has apologized to Africans but this country’s leaders have refused to apologize,” he said. Wright also said, “You can’t do terrorism on other people and not expect it to come back on you.”

Nice.

To be honest, I find such apologies to be nothing more than political grandstanding. But to say that the United States has suffered terrorist attacks because of slavery is absurd. This man is the Pastor of a large church. Has he even read the bible?

h/t Sebastian.
