Obama’s “Spiritual Journey”: Where’s Jeremiah Wright?
The Washington Post has a lengthy story on Obama’s current account of his faith journey.
The story, strangely, leaves unexamined the role of Pastor Wright in Obama’s spiritual journey. How can a story allegedly about Obama’s religious beliefs not discuss in depth the influence of Jeremiah Wright, which is detailed in Obama’s memoir, Dreams of My Father?
It cannot, of course, and it is not a serious story as a result. It is a certain that Obama wants to airbrush Pastor Wright and his views from the candidate’s biography, but ought the nation’s leading paper cooperate in the exercise?
