Today Obama responded to charges about his old pastor by publishing an article at the Huffington Post. Obama points out that the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who made some inflammatory remarks that Obama has denounced, “has never been my political advisor; he’s been my pastor.”
But then he went on to point out that Wright is retiring and the new pastor of his church is Rev. Otis Moss III. Boy did that bring back memories! You see, the black church I have locked in my memory is the church of III’s father, Rev. Otis Moss Jr., in Cleveland. That’s where I grew up and that church was always a stop for my father on the campaign trail and at other times. How cool is it that his son is now Obama’s pastor! Small world.
