Wright said “The hatred of the media and the haters in politics may have caused him to distance himself from us, but the love of Christ will never allow me to distance myself from him, I can no more disown him than I can disown any other child of mine who makes a bad decision. He made a bad decision, but he’s still my child.”
Wright did not mention Hasslebeck by name but referred to her twice as a broad and once as ‘that dumb broad from The View.’ Wright continued his criticism of American foreign policy, criticizing Guantanamo Bay, saying “What we doing with a base in Cuba? We just take stuff.”
Wright had retired from Trinity United Church of Christ earlier this year but had returned for a guest sermon.
According to ABC News, Wright recently sent a message to President Elect Barack Obama, saying “As long as you are presiding over policy that grinds God’s people into Earth, I am coming after you.”
