Speaking of arrogance ... .
Did I fail to mention how deeply disappointed I was in the Reverend Jeremiah Wright's most recent anti-Semitic statements? I should have. Little of that overt arrogance was present in his person or his talk at the recent gathering at Starr King School for the Ministry.
How sad that his anger hasn't yet eased and that it would now be expressed in ways that cause embarrassment to those who are trying hard to support him at a time when attacks upon his character have been so damaging -- so painful -- and in many instances -- so undeserved.
So sad ... and so alienating.
