Jeremiah Wright Eating Breakfast With A "Dirty Rider"

Jeremiah Wright:

“Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us. No he ain’t! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.”

Now, comes this picture, complete with the story behind it.

During one of the most difficult periods in the presidency of Bill Clinton, he addressed a group of clerics at an annual prayer breakfast in September 1998 just as the Starr report outlining his dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was about to be published.

Among those in attendance, was the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., who is seen shaking hands with Mr. Clinton in a photograph provided today by the Obama campaign. Mr. Wright’s relationship with Senator Barack Obama, as his longtime pastor, has been the subject of considerable controversy in recent days because of incendiary excerpts of sermons Mr. Wright gave at their church, Trinity United Church of Christ, in Chicago.

In my view, there's nothing worse than a minister who hears a confession (sincere or not) from someone that has chosen to confide in them, and then preach about and make judgments on that person, from the pulpit (after the fact). Granted, it is not a written law in the Protestant world. But it one of the worst ethical lapses, a clergy can have and is definitely a sign of the worst kind of hypocrisy.

Obama trusted this man and exposed his family and children to him. So much for sound judgment.

Dear friend: One of my all time favorite dirty tricks is when the KGB recruited priests, who then informed on parishioners after they made confession. Can you imagine the genius of this? Now, can you imagine the genius of this in concert with efforts to create an athiest state?

So how is this any different? Remember, left is left. I suppose the real quandary given the vast sins attributed to BC is “where to start?”
