Jeremiah Wright on Bill Moyers Friday, April 25

with 3 comments

Now here’s television serving the public: Bill Moyers will interview Rev. Jeremiah Wright, long-time pastor of Barack Obama, on April 25. What a marvelous chance to hear Wright tell his own story, rather than hearing it sliced and diced by sound-biters.

Jeremiah Wright to be interviewed by Bill Moyers

In what will be his first interview since snippets of his preaching became a central issue in the U.S. presidential campaign, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. will speak publicly to veteran journalist and fellow UCC member Bill Moyers.

The interview will be broadcast on Friday evening, April 25, on Bill Moyers Journal, a PBS news series that airs nationally. Check local listings at

Wright retired in March after 36 years as senior pastor of the 8,000-member Trinity UCC in Chicago, where U.S. Sen. Barack Obama has been a member for more than 20 years. Trinity UCC is the largest congregation among the UCC’s 5,700 churches. […]

Following his appearance on Bill Moyers Journal, Wright is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the NAACP Detroit Branch on Sunday, April 27. He is also slated to speak on Monday, April 28, to a breakfast gathering at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

  1. I guess the thing that is disconcerting me in all of this is not that Jeremiah Wright said God D*** America, but that most Americans believe that it will never happen. I am grateful for God’s blessings upon our country, but we are not above God turning His head and turning His blessings from us. And to think we are exempt is idolatry and arrogant. I pray it never happens, but if we as individuals continue to denounce Christ, it will. God help us change.

  3. I think a country that shuts up his own, because they force them to look in the mirror, is helpless!

    If I were a white American, I would be standing with Wright and shout: “We need to CHANGE”!, rather than step over him and say “We need to SHUT WRIGHT UP!”

    Monte Says: Amen. We need to CHANGE!
