I figured it would be good for readers to be able to see all the posts I’ve done recently on this whole fiasco surrounding Wright and Obama. Heres the list so far in chronological order:
1. Obama, Race, and Theology: A theological analysis of Obama’s speech.
2. Cone on CNN?: A rumor that hasn’t seemed to have panned out unfortunately.
3. A Humble Suggestion: Suggesting a book along the title of Religion Still Matters for Cornel West.
4. Wright’s Sermon: A longer video of Dr. Wright’s sermon where he utters the infamous phrase “God damn America.”
5. Understanding Wright by Understanding Cone: Black Liberation Theology from Cone: A very short introduction to reading Cone.
6. Carter on Obama: Citing J. Kameron Carter’s response to Obama’s speech.
7. Cone Explained: How the Media, Politicos, and Others Like Them are Stupid as a Brick and Got it All Wrong: Explaining the significance of Tillichian symbolism in Cone’s work, how one should rightly understand what Cone does say, and a link to Carter’s critique.
