Jeremiah Wright hits back at Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity

Reported by Chrish - April 13, 2008 -

Jeremiah Wright, the pastor who has made controversial remarks while preaching at the church Barack Obama's family attends, spoke this weekend at the funeral of a prominent Chicago figure. Wright made a pointed remark about the judgmental coverage he's received on FOX News.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports

"Reflecting on the late Pincham, Wright said his faith "was not the jingoistic, chauvinistic 'you're either with us or against us' demonizing kind of faith." Wright said Pincham was friends with "Jews, Muslims, rabbis, imams, fathers in the Catholic church and [Louis] Farrakhan in the Islamic faith."

Escalating into full-preaching mode, Wright thundered, "Fox News can't understand that. [Bill] O'Reilly will never get that. Sean Hannity's stupid fantasy will keep him forever stuck on stupid when it comes to comprehending how you can love a brother who does not believe what you believe. [Pincham's] faith was a faith in a God who loved the whole world not just one country or one creed."

At that point, congregants nearly drowned Wright out with a booming standing ovation.

Hmm, I wonder if Bill O'Reilly will let that go unnoticed. (Just kidding.)
