Joe Klein has an excellent point on this article, Rev. Wright Calls Criticism of Sermons ‘Attack on Black Church’“
Yes, as many have pointed out, Martin Luther King Jr. gave some angry, angry sermons–especially about the obscenity of the war in Vietnam–but for Wright to say the attacks on him are an attack on the black church is to offer a straitened and solipsistic view of that grand institution. Black liberation theology is not the black church.
I was just discussing with Jazz Shaw whether Obama would disavow Rev. Wright, and we both agreed he won’t. As Jazz put it,
No matter how much he “denounces” etc. it will never be enough for his detractors on the right and it won’t matter for his supporters, so why bother?
