Here is a fuller version of Jeremiah Wright's sermon on the Sunday after 911. Imagine a Christian minister suggesting that payback might not be God's way! Why didn't every good American get up and walk out of the sermon in outrage?
I particularly liked the way Wright acknowledged that the Bible can be used to justify revenge. "O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us--he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks." Psalm 137:8-9. And yet, Wright dared to think that God might be calling man to something higher.
