More Rev. Eugene Rivers on Hannity’s America

Last night, Sean Hannity had Eugene Rivers on Hannity’s America.

Reverend Rivers gave more enlightening insight into the psyche of Jeremiah Wright and what he perceives is the position of Black Liberation Theology within the realm of the black religeous experience in America.

I don’t think it passed anyone’s attention that Jeremiah Wright was claiming earlier this week that an attack on him was an attack on black churches. Reverend Rivers would pointedly argue this message.

Having lived in the South all of my life, I was finding it hard to imagine that a philosophy as aggressive and hostile as Wright’s would go unnoticed in the various communities in which I’ve lived and suspected that Wright’s brand of Christianity was simply an abberation of the black community specifically attributed to places where people like Wright held influence.

I think it’s unfortunate that so many black leaders, and especially religeous leaders, feel that they have to “circle the wagons” for someone like Wright. Frankly, he isn’t worth it and they should exercise more selective judgment.

  1. For Eric:

    Thanks for your comment, Eric.

    Let your friends know that I have both the interviews with Reverend Rivers from last week on video clips for anyone who has missed them as well as a clip of the entire segment on Black Liberation Theology.

    I’m new to RedLasso, but if there’s any way for you or anyone else to use these clips, please feel free to do so. I think these interviews and that segment are very important for everyone.

    Also, if you or anyone else see something on the news that’s worth preserviing as a clip, let me know and I’ll try to make one. Currently, they’re limited to 10 minute segments but could be made in multiple parts for a long program.

    Thanks again. Earl

  2. I found the Hannity story on Black Liberation Theology and interview of Rev. Rivers to be OUTSTANDING. Rev. Rivers basically described Wright’s brand of theology as warmed over Marxism masquerading as religious doctrine. I am glad someone on a national forum said what many people already knew. The “attack on the black church” was just Wrights attempt to gather allies to defend his actions. Jeremiah Wright is a false teacher, and in 20 years Obama wasn’t smart enough to recognize it. It doesn’t take a genius (or a degree from Harvard) to realize that “G** d*** America” and Exodus 20:7 are in contradiction.

    “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

    If Obama is unable to choose a church, pastor, and non-terrorist associates, why should the American people believe that he has the judgment to pick a presidential cabinet and federal judges
