Thursday Brite Divinity School-Jeremiah Wright Love fest Update
Note: Please see original story posted yesterday, Brite Divinity School to Honor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and last night’s update Brite Divinity School Jeremiah Wright Update for more details.
Despite TCU’s attempts to distance itself from the Brite banquet honoring Jeremiah Wright, Brite appears to be holding fast to its commitment to honor Rev. Jeremiah Wright on March 29th.
However a firestorm is raging. Comments are flying on the online local press at the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Looks like the left-leaning ST editorial is getting more than they e bargained for as most of the comments are not favorable to their assessment of Wright!
“Wright and wrong
Officials at Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University are not backing down from the decision by the Black Church Studies Program to honor the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. at its fourth State of the Black Church Summit on March 28-29.
Good for Brite.
When the school announced that Wright would be honored for his more than 30-year record of church growth and community service at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, not one word of complaint was publicly aired. The controversy has arisen only since TV news reports and Web sites have been playing and replaying out-of-context video clips of what Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's pastor said years ago . . .”
There they go again, playing the Out-of Context Card!!!
It’s very easy for anyone to leave a comment on this article. I just did.
There’s no earth shattering news since last evening. But here’s yet another article excerpt from the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
“Black church summit will not be at TCU
The event featuring Rev. Jeremiah Wright was moved for security reasons, officials say

FORT WORTH -- Black Church Summit sessions will not be held at Texas Christian University as scheduled because of security concerns triggered by a controversial award to be given to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, TCU said in a statement Wednesday.
The executive committee of TCU's board of trustees voted in favor of moving summit events, including the March 29 awards banquet, and host Brite Divinity School agreed to the move, the statement said.
Brite will announce the event's new location later, according to the statement. . . "
I left another comment there as well.
