in response to reader comment: Malformed ideas aren't treason

Oh, and I KNOW Rev. Wright is a racist.

From the Trinity United Church of Christ web site Talking Points, "The vision statement of Trinity United Church of Christ is based upon the systematized liberation theology that started in 1969 with the publication of Dr. James Cone's book, Black Power and Black Theology."

Dr. James Cone writes,

"Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified
totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us
and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better
kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong
to the black community. . . . Black theology will accept only the love
of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What
we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the
power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any
means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy
activity, we must reject his love."

Try reading that and replacing black with white and white with black.

But don't expect to find them on the web site, it's being scrubbed as I write. I wonder why....
