WILLIAM NORMAN GRIGG, , former Mormon High Priest who converted to Evangelical Christianity, former Senior Editor of The New American magazine and the author of such controversial books as Freedom On The Altar: The UN's Crusade Against God & Family , Global Gun Grab: The UN's Campaign to Disarm Americans and The Gospel of Revolt: Feminism vs. the Family will address "THE JEREMIAH WRIGHT CONTROVERSY."
As most if not all of you know, Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama recently was compelled by growing public awareness of his extremely controversial pastor, Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ (a church identifying itself on its own web site as "a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian") in Chicago, IL, to give a televised speech distancing himself from some of Wright's inflammatory remarks about the United States of America and race relations between blacks and whites which many deem to be both unpatriotic and racist. However, while doing so, Mr. Obama refused to officially denounce or separate himself from his spiritual mentor of nearly 20 years. As brilliantly crafted and delivered as this speech may have been, and as inspiring as it was to many, was its contents truly enough to completely separate Mr. Obama's own connection to unpatriotic and racist ideology?
Today William Norman Grigg will provide a Christian response to this situation as one who, being a very "dark skinned" individual of Mexican ancestry, was once a member of a cult (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) which is deeply rooted in white supremacist racism.
