Jeremiah Wright Meets the Press

Jeremiah Wright held a Q&A at the National Press Club breakfast on April 28, 2008 and entertained the assembled throng with his whit and grit. When asked at one point by the moderator, "Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the father but through me.” Do you believe this? And do you think Islam is a way to salvation?," he responded with a quote from John 10-- "other sheep have I, who are not of this fold."

Without expounding much, it appears Mr. Wright believes Muslims are saved by their faith in Allah by way of Mohammad. Naturally, he ripped the verse out of context, which in and of itself is interesting as he chided many of the questioners and media for taking his sermon excerpts out of context.

Obama's Judgment

Barack Obama believes his judgment is better than Hillary's. That's his counter to the experience card Hillary often plays. Now if Barack Obama was a member of Jeremiah Wright's church for twenty years and knew so little about what his "pastor" believed, can his judgment be that much greater than that of, say, an elephant?
