"I think they wanted to communicate that I am unpatriotic, that I am un-American,that I am filled with hate speech, that I have a cult at Trinity United Church of Christ. And by the way, guess who goes to his church, hint, hint, hint? That's what they wanted to communicate."-Rev. Jeremiah Wright
This week on BILL MOYERS JOURNAL (KCET-TV)

Wright, who retired in early 2008 as pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where Senator Obama is a member, has been at the center of controversy for comments he made during sermons, which surfaced in the press in March.
